G42 Tourney at Gencon 16' - National Championship (Off Topic)

  • 2021 '20 '18 '17

    Apologies for the OT post gentlement but wanted very much to share and encourage others to attend in 2017;

    Just wanted to give a shout out to Mr. Smorly and his crew at the Smorly Swamp at Gencon 2016.  Really made a great effort to make us feel welcome and provide a great referee for determining teams and times.  Made some awesome trophies, had a huge number of great prizes (+30 games, minis, shirts, everything).  He puts a ton of time and effort into these events and they wouldn’t be the same without him.

    Also a shout out to Bob Roby, 2012 and 2014 Gencon G42 Tournament Co-winner.    Played like a true gentleman; offered great advice, and was a gracious loser at both Kantcon 2016 and in our Gencon Tournament Game.

    We and he want a rematch without delay here in Kansas City at Tabletop Game and Hobby!  Thank you to Phil Kilgore for providing a free practice and play space for our club.

    Maphead and I won the G42 tournament our first time at Gencon, 3-1, Ally, Axis, Axis, Axis.  It was an awesome experience and the entire crew of the global games went out for a drink.  Our opponents first day, James and Jason, went out to dinner with us and shared war stories.  It was an incredible experience and every player was a sportsman and a gentleman.

    Look forward to seeing you all again in the future at the Swamp.  Shout out to Tirano and Siparo who attended and the rest from the boards for all their good advice and feedback.  Veni, Vidi, Vici!
