GenCon Poll

Hey everyone!

Gen con is wondering how many tables we will need , and they didn't like my original estimates. We are intending to run events all four great days of gaming, and we wondered what the DDM Community was thinking about. This is your chance to tell us.

Since we've been accumulating new players, I sometimes wonder if the players are interested in home games only, or in showing up for the friendly tournament atmosphere the guild espouses. That's really what built our community in the first place - A first class group of players that were competitive but compassionate, and willing to teach others. I think we still have that core, but I get the feeling its numbers have dwindled a bit. That's natural, as players move from one system to another . We always want to keep learning new and exciting things, right?.

That said, DDMers are definitely different. I simply don't know of a friendlier group of players.

So take the next day or so to reply to me in the comments below and let me know who wants to play DDM at GenCon. It will help us to provide direction to the powers that be, and permit us to run our events on the appropriate number of tables (whatever that ends up being.)

Best,
DGarry

I will be there all four days and Weds evening if anyone wants to get some casual play in before the Con officially starts.
DDM is the reason I attend, so my schedule will revolve around DDM events.
Already looking forward to it.

I'll be there with my family for all four days. I'd love to stop by and catch up with some of the crowd, possibly play some matches. Is there any event listing of DDM? I downloaded the big spreadsheet from GenCon and didn't see any DDM entries.

Thanks,

Pat Lynch

I will be there all four days. I would be up for playing in an event or two for sure. I prefer standard 200 point format and league or sealed play.

I plan to be there, if there DDM events. I would especially like to see a North American DDM Championship again. I would even love to run an event (or two). And looking forward to trying / playing new game, Sellsword.

Cool

I'll be there as well. I'll be playtesting my board game in the Double Exposure Playtester's Hall, but aside from those slots will be available.

Do you know if DDM will be in one of the hotels? I hardly ever get out of the main building.

Hi All,

I will be there all for days, so will Gary Okuma. I want to play, but registration is tomorrow. It's a challenge to fit in late events, but I'' try to make it happen.

Would, but can't - in the US the two weeks before, but cannot make it back.

Sellsword looks very professional - look forward to seeing how it plays.

I will be there. Schedule is pretty open right now. I might be able to get a sealed box of Harbinger for drafting.

Wish I had known before registration opened; my schedule is pretty full now, so it's doubtful I can play in more than one event. I'd be more interested in something social/casual that my kids can enjoy, too.

Hello All!

I've never played competitive DDM due to lack of local playgroup, but I love the minis and I'd enjoy checking it out at GenCon. What's the best way to stay informed about when events will be held?

If I want to prepare for a tournament, could you point me to some useful resources? Looking forward to it!

I plan to be there all 5 days (I'll get in Wednesday evening). I don't know if Alex will be joining me (job things). Dan, who used to attend every DDM game with me, will be at GenCon, though I don't know his plans (this year, he has a significant other with him). My son Andrew plans to attend.

I don't have games scheduled, though I've been in conversation Tried about things.

A family member is having a rough time of a medical condition and it's possible this will affect my plans, but, I hope not.

So count me in; put me on the "yes" list for Thursday through Sunday.

It'll be nice to see you guys again.

Dave

For Community Event, if plans are for one like in past years (a Community Draft), then I have about 30 boosters (mix of Angelfire, Underdark, Deathknell, War Drums) I could bring to sell for use in the event.

Likewise, for the community event, I have 1 1/2 cases of unopened Lords of Madness that I can bring for sale to DDMers, if necessary (as well as a few assorted boosters of Dangerous Delves, Savage Encounters, and the Heroscape wave, I think, although I will have to check on those).

I will be there judging Magic all four days (well judging Kaijudo two days and magic two days)

I have a 10 hour shift a day but Friday my shift doesn't start until 4 so I would love to meet up with some folks (Lynch and others looking at you).

If you want to plan a meetup with me either facebook me or email me at my gmail account (most should still have it).
