Per the GameHoleCon organizer:
Yes, players do need to register for events. The easiest way to do it is to pre-register. You can buy a badge and then select and pay for games through the Con site. This way you know that you are in a given game once you have a ticket for it.

The other alternative is buying badges and game tickets the day of. There certainly will be a lot of people who do this. This means filing out the registration stuff on-site, paying for the badge, then going to the games desk to see what games are still available. If there are still tickets available for a given game, players can buy that ticket. (Game tickets are cheap by the way $1 or $2 usually.) If players walk up to our tables without a game ticket, we will have to send them back to get one.

Due to the swarm of people, certainly on Saturday, pre-registration is the way to go. That way, you just stop off, give your name, and you are handed a bag with your badge, your game tickets, and a schedule of your events. Also, weekend badges are $35 in pre-registration and $40 on site.

---

Just a reminder that pre-registration is open until Oct 15. After that, you spend some of your time in line when you arrive ... and that is precious gaming time. :)

We've had quite a few people express interest, now we just need you to sign up. 8-)

Here are some pictures of the tournament at Gamehole Con. Major thanks to Mark, Shawn and Tim for hosting this and getting everything together to make this happen.

Here is just a picture of the room where our star wars event at the convention was held. There were lots of games going on around us, but that didn't distract us from playing the game we all love.

Image


We are all getting ready to start. Starting from left to right we have Shawn (GalacticFunk), Tim (Chargers), Jason (Urbanjedi), Eric (Engineer), and my brother Taylor (spacemanspiff).

Image

Mark (PhilNLil) and Eric (Engineer) prepare to face off against each other.

Image

Next is a picture of my match against Jason (Urbanjedi) and his Talon Karrde squad. The battle was fierce and it was a close game. Jason got the 3 point win and handed me my only loss for the day. Great game and well played by Jason!

Image

Next up is a picture of the match between Taylor (spacemanspiff) and Tim (Chargers). Mace rolled 4 crits in one turn! It was an amazingly powerful squad that Tim put together!

Here is a group photo of all of us after the 200pt swiss tournament. Starting from the top left to right is Taylor (spacemanspiff), Trevor (obikenobi1), Eric (Engineer), Jason (Urbanjedi) and Mark (PhilNLil). Starting from the bottom left to right is Shawn (GalacticFunk) and Tim (Chargers)

There is always next year Lou. I think we will have a lot more people show up for our next tourney. The people at gamehole con did a good job getting everything organized so it was a good experience playing there.

I wanna see some squads!

The Republic brought:

Mace, LotLS
Commander Ahsoka
Padme Amidala, Senator
Mas Amedda
Captain Panaka
Captain Rex
R2 Astromech
Klatooinian Assassin
Ugnaught

The thought was to tow or swap Mace in, let him hit/crit/Flurry and Rolling Cleave. Padme gives Mace an immediate attack to try again. Rex and the Klat take shots where they can.

Tile wars consisted of:
58 [54] Spacetrooper x2
46 Reborn Shadowtrooper x2
39 Desann
37 Grand Admiral Thrawn
12 Garindan
8 Mas Amedda

The original intent was to obviously rush my opponent with a Reborn and then swap out for Desann. In reality, I never got a chance to rush…my opponents all came to me and had to deal with Thrawn's Force Bubble. In Tile Wars, the bubble really feels smaller and caused a few headaches along the way. It was nice to have both of my Spacetroopers firing from the bubble with no chance to use Force on rerolls to evade or save against their missiles!

It wasn't until my last match that I remembered I actually had another 4 points to build with. Oh well…that's what I get for grabbing a squad on the fly!

In the final match, the telling moment was when I fired at Luke with a Spacetrooper, combined with Garindan and Thrawn so that I only needed a 3…and I rolled a 1. Game over!

My tournament squad was:
54 Cad Bane
32 Talon Karrde, Information Broker
27 [26] Mara Jade, Smuggler
27 Lobot
24 Klatooinian Assassin x2
16 Dr. Evazan, Galactic Criminal
16 R7 Astromech Droid x2
5 Salacious Crumb

This is a squad I want to work on a little more. I just couldn't get in a position to use Mara at her full potential and that hurt me in both of my losses.
