CaptainCon 2017

Postby Inquisitor Wall » Sun Dec 04, 2016 7:32 pm

Anyone heading down to captaincon this year? I am thinking of heading down for Saturday to play Malifaux, but I dont think Im doing the full weekend. I do miss a full weekend con each year though.

I might go. I'm not sure yet. Haven't really planned anything after the business of the holidays.

Looks like they found space for a couple more tables, so there are a couple more spots for the Malifaux tournament. They will probably go pretty quick, so if you are interested go sign up now. This is looking to be a 60+ person event at this point which will make it the biggest event in the region yet. There has also been a push to try and get Aaron to attend the event as well.

Considering CaptainCon is only a few weeks after the TOS kickstarter's finale, I think your odds of getting Aaron are somewhere around negative 8%.

60 people is an assload. Are all the rounds 2:15? That's a loooooong day on your feet with no voice.

Yeah, I assume it would be a stretch to get them to send him, but hey by then he may need a 'break'.

Its 4-5 rounds on Saturday, and the top 8 play in a bracketed tournament on Sunday. 4 rounds would be ok to get a top 8 from 60 people. Playing 4 games in a day is not too bad.

Malifaux tournament is up to 64... I think that's the biggest ever. It's looking to be a great Captaincon overall. If anyone is going for the full thing and wants to either carpool Friday morning or share a room, hit me up.
