    So 15 tables total?  I liked the D-day theme (and BTW the moment of silence was a good thing to do).

    @bgugs:

    I decided to use my free airline tickets to go to Italy, up until now I felt good about that decision. After seeing this Italy better be awesome if it’s going to beat Toronto

    No chance (lol).

    Lol based on the photos this was an incredible event. I am not sure where I will be in life in October 2019 (grad school/work/etc.) but this is something I will try to make for sure

    Somewhere between 20-30 tables total, we have already found a bigger hall on the same street. The beach names were special for 2017, we will come up with something else to name the tables in 2019.

    Destroying Meeplecon 2018 and turning it into Globalcon 2018 should be your goal.

    I don’t see why I should arrange a “structure” to find out before the “real” games begin.

    Im saying since their is no rating system and many people who may play wont know how good they are, everyone should play in one big tourny, but the number of teams would need to be structured into divisions of which the winner in each play each other. no different than Basketball or any major sports structure of determining this.

    Under that tourney you ran, you had two divisions, but the winners of these never met, because play between them did not exist. Only teams in that division played each other, not in the other division. I bet some team in Hobbyist could beat enthusiast, but it wasn’t possible. I am proposing you just have the winners of each division play each other rather than the top two teams in ONE division. Its simple, no?



  • I agree with Imperious. A basketball style bracket. I now I was’nt there this year, however I feel as though I would want to play against the best competition possible.


  • 2019 2017

    What I’m thinking about doing for the Vegas event is to make different time restrictions, i.e. tighter for enthusiast, and fewer (maybe less time amount) time tokens for enthusiast.

    That way folks know they have to move fast and be a good player in Enthusiast.  I was also thinking about setting a certain number of rounds that everyone plays, maybe 9.  The place we’re playing at is open from 10am-11:30pm.

    Thoughts guys?

  • Whatever the rules are….as long as they don’t change with the wind…People are going to practice in accordance to the rules and structure

    Based on what I’ve learned last weekend and getting feedback from many participants including Gold medalists like Gargantua… we have settled on the following modifications. I can assure you that there will be no more changes after this because I have to design cards for each change made, and I desperately want to stop making cards. For those that paid for card decks already sent in the mail without the modifications, I will be shipping them free replacement cards for the few changes that were made. Therefore, practice with this rule set… it is now set in stone for better or for worst.

  • Go with a blind draw, 2 or 3 divisions either you have it or you dont, bring your A game and put your money where your mouth is. You dont know who your opponent is until its drawn out of a hat. Good luck

    I have an 8 Sided die system I’m developing that will fix units like Cruisers and Battleships… but the tournament rules are final, no more changes.
