I wish that I could come out again this year but it is not in the cards. Still trying to figure out if I'm going to be able to keep my promise to Dave to help out with PAX Prime, so we'll see about that one.

No biggie if you can't do it. Late Aprilish is probably my deadline for ordering the badges, but I seem to miss that every year for you.

If you can only make one, then go help out Dave. I'm not at risk of being all alone.

This is what we submitted. I have until the end of the month to make tweaks, but would prefer to only change the description or swap times. I can't change number of players or create new timeslots. The hall is very full and this configuration gets us five tables all to ourselves all weekend.

Note: I got all consecutive game codes. My OCD is so happy.

Daemon Diceā„¢: Constructed
Bring your most deadly 13 die daemon and attempt to dominate in head to head combat. Swiss format.
GameCode/Times:
TCG1454016 8/16/2014 19:00 (6 players) (2 Hours) (2$)
Cliff Notes: I didn't want to call this worlds or it might scare people away, but I wanted to see if we can get ANYONE to play constructed.

Daemon Diceā„¢: Draft - Twins
Build two daemons from 26 dice drafted from a random pool. Both daemons fight individually head to head each round. All dice included in ticket price. Swiss format.
GameCode/Times:
TCG1454013 8/14/2014 19:00 (12 players) (4 hours) (16$)
TCG1454014 8/17/2014 10:00 (6 players) (4 hours) (16$)
Cliff Notes: I'm doing it twice. Once that I know more people will play and again smaller. This is what you get for letting me pick my own events. The idea is you build two daemons and each round you play both. You could make them identical twins or you could make a monster and a runt. You can play them in any order you wish each round, but the daemons can not change between rounds. I worded this vaguely so that we can choose to use whatever packs are available and legal or it might just be starters. An entire starter will be drafted before the next one is opened. So no one knows all the contents of the draft at the begining.

Daemon Diceā„¢: Novice Event
New players borrow a starter pack of dice and experience the thrill of Daemon Diceā„¢ combat while learning the details of the game. Swiss format.
GameCode/Times:
TCG1453991 8/14/2014 12:00 (12 players) (2 hours) (2$)
TCG1453992 8/14/2014 17:00 (12 players) (2 hours) (2$)
TCG1453993 8/15/2014 12:00 (12 players) (2 hours) (2$)
TCG1453994 8/15/2014 17:00 (12 players) (2 hours) (2$)
TCG1453995 8/16/2014 12:00 (12 players) (2 hours) (2$)
TCG1453996 8/16/2014 17:00 (12 players) (2 hours) (2$)
TCG1453997 8/17/2014 12:00 (12 players) (2 hours) (2$)
Cliff Notes: This is just a demo, but we can't say the D word.

Daemon Diceā„¢: Sealed
Your vile constructs crawl from the vats looking for battle and blood. Starter pack included in ticket price. Random packs will be assigned at the start of the first round. Swiss format.
GameCode/Times:
TCG1454004 8/15/2014 9:00 (6 players) (4 hours) (16$)
TCG1454005 8/15/2014 19:00 (6 players) (4 hours) (16$)
TCG1454017 8/16/2014 14:00 (12 players) (4 hours) (16$)
Cliff Notes: same as last year. Get a starter, build a daemon with half of it.

Dragon Diceā„¢ Campaigns: Novice Event
Command your armies on the conquest of an entire continent. Players try to conquer the world of Esfah in a board game version of Dragon Diceā„¢.
GameCode/Times:
TCG1454010 8/14/2014 20:00 (6 players) (2 hours) (2$)
TCG1454011 8/15/2014 14:00 (6 players) (2 hours) (2$)
TCG1454012 8/16/2014 10:00 (6 players) (2 hours) (2$)
Cliff Notes: This is just a demo, but we can't say the D word. Can't say yet if product will or wont be available.


Dragon Diceā„¢: Battlefest Bring a 60-health army. None of the normal army construction limits, including limitations on the number of magic users or number of any individual die, apply. Swiss format.
GameCode/Times:
TCG1454001 8/16/2014 19:00 (12 players) (4 hours) (4$)
Cliff Notes: Same as always. I may bring a daemondice army and drop out if there are people to play with.

Dragon Diceā„¢: Multi-Player
The entire game changes when battling more than one opponent. Bring your 36-health army (no more than 18-health of magicians). All matches will be a multi-player Swiss format.
GameCode/Times:
TCG1454006 8/15/2014 12:00 (12 players) (4 hours) (4$)
Cliff Notes: Same as always.

Dragon Diceā„¢: No Magicians!
Sharpen your blades, string your bows, but magicians stay at home! Bring a 36-health army, no magic-using, expansion or promo dice are allowed. Swiss format.
GameCode/Times:
TCG1453998 8/14/2014 14:00 (12 players) (4 hours) (4$)
Cliff Notes: Same as always.

Dragon Diceā„¢: Novice Event
New players borrow a starter pack of dice and experience the thrill of Dragon Diceā„¢ combat while learning the details of the game. Swiss format.
GameCode/Times:
TCG1453981 8/14/2014 10:00 (12 players) (2 hours) (2$)
TCG1453982 8/14/2014 15:00 (12 players) (2 hours) (2$)
TCG1453983 8/14/2014 20:00 (12 players) (2 hours) (2$)
TCG1453984 8/15/2014 10:00 (12 players) (2 hours) (2$)
TCG1453985 8/15/2014 15:00 (12 players) (2 hours) (2$)
TCG1453986 8/15/2014 20:00 (12 players) (2 hours) (2$)
TCG1453987 8/16/2014 10:00 (12 players) (2 hours) (2$)
TCG1453988 8/16/2014 15:00 (12 players) (2 hours) (2$)
TCG1453989 8/16/2014 20:00 (12 players) (2 hours) (2$)
TCG1453990 8/17/2014 10:00 (12 players) (2 hours) (2$)
Cliff Notes: This is just a demo, but we can't say the D word.

TCG1454003
Dragon Diceā„¢: Sealed - Elder Races
Dwarf, Goblin, Lava Elf , Coral Elf and Amazons fight it out. Two Kickers, Terrains and Dragons included in ticket price. Random packs will be assigned at the start of the first round. Swiss format.
GameCode/Times:
TCG1454003 8/16/2014 9:00 (12 players) (4 hours) (16$)
Cliff Notes: Gonna do this different that last year. I will have two kings die. You will roll both and you get a kicker of each result. The logo will be player choice, is that fair? I may have a pool of terrains and dragons to pull from instead of the baggies like last year.

Dragon Diceā„¢: Sealed - Single Race
The races segregate themselves for war. Two Kickers, Terrains and Dragons included in ticket price. Random packs will be assigned at the start of the first round. Swiss format.
GameCode/Times:
TCG1454002 8/17/2014 10:00 (12 players) (4 hours) (16$)
Cliff Notes: same as last year. two kickers of the same random race.

Dragon Diceā„¢: Sealed Plus - Amazons
Amazons mercenaries fight for the largest bidder. Three Kickers, Terrains and Dragons included in ticket price. Random packs will be assigned at the start of the first round. Swiss format.
GameCode/Times:
TCG1454015 8/15/2014 19:00 (12 players) (4 hours) (22$)
Cliff Notes: I know this is expensive, but you get three kickers for this price. One will be an Amazon kicker, The other two will be of the same race, but random. I may have a pool of terrains and dragons to pull from instead of the baggies like last year.

Dragon Diceā„¢: Single Race
Bring a 36-health army of a single race, with at most 4 commons, 3 uncommons, 2 rares and 1 monster of any type, and fight it out. No expansion, promo dice allowed. Swiss format.
GameCode/Times:
TCG1453999 8/15/2014 9:00 (12 players) (4 hours) (4$)
Cliff Notes: The tried and true.

Dragon Diceā„¢: World Championship
Bring your 36-health army (no more than 18-health of magicians) plus all summoning pool components and compete for the title of Dragon Diceā„¢ World Champion! Swiss format.
GameCode/Times:
TCG1454000 8/16/2014 14:00 (6 players) (4 hours) (4$)
Cliff Notes: I know that limiting it to 6 players isn't great, but this is THE busiest timeslot of the con and I can't argue for 12 based on past years attendance. We can take generics and slop over into our other events space.

Super Power Smack Down: Novice Event
New players borrow a set of custom dice and experience the thrill of a Super Power Smack Down while learning the details of the game. Swiss format.
GameCode/Times:
TCG1454007 8/14/2014 16:00 (6 players) (2 hours) (2$)
TCG1454008 8/15/2014 16:00 (6 players) (2 hours) (2$)
TCG1454009 8/16/2014 12:00 (6 players) (2 hours) (2$)
Cliff Notes: This is just a demo, but we can't say the D word. We will either have product available or it might be to support a kickstarter or it might be another playtest. Things could change a lot in seven months.

Sweet! I am so excited! The fifth, fifth monster!

I will be going to GenCon, unless something crazy happens. However, I think I want to take my daughter around and do multiple things with her (not just family day), so I don't think I will be able to work the booth as much this year. I should be good for at least a shift or two, and I can still help you with set up on Wed and tear down Sunday, like always. I just want to do a bunch of stuff there, and then with adding stuff to do with Leah, it pretty much means I need the GenCon time to... well... enjoy GenCon! She had fun with the couple of things she did last year, so this year, she is gonna be my gaming buddy!

sounds like fun.

I wanted to do things with my kids, but Alex and megan were too big and wanted to do things by themselves.

Tiffany may disagree, but I'm really thinking about bringing my 3rd next year since the Gencon is a week earlier.

Yeah, Leah isn't too big yet.... She is 8. The perfect age to understand things yet not too old to be difficult. I think 8, 9 and maybe 10 are the perfect ages for kids! They are so much fun at those ages.

Samantha is gonna be such a little rules lawyer. She is so particular and makes up rules and structures and systems for everything she sees, EVERYTHING.

The events are live!

After so much news of so many events being sold out, make sure you go and buy tickets for ours too!

and all of our events now have table locations! So they are really real!

Hall B, Yellow tables 16 to 20 (except 14-15 for one event).

For those who don't know Hall B is not exactly close to the exhibit hall. it's on the opposite corner of the convention center. I'm hoping they will create a hallway to make it easier to get between the two.

Just got the green light for Friday and Saturday for attending Gen Con.

Quick question about the Daemon Diceā„¢ constructed. Can we use other breeds if we have them? Can we use item dice?

Not sure yet if I will be able to play in it, but would like to put something together that is legal for the trip to Indy.

Thanks!

Edit for another ?

Dragon Diceā„¢™: Single Race
Bring a 36-health army of a single race, with at most 4 commons, 3 uncommons, 2 rares and 1 monster of any type,

This means of the same die? Ex: If 3 monsters, each need to be different.

Glad you'll be able to attend!

It won't be all breeds. For example: a brand new player would NOT want to get beat by something that they can't physically purchase. it is a re-release.

However, we will be releasing Fester Body Parts prior to Gencon, so we are discussing if those would be legal or not. Typically we don't allow it, but I think it would make for a more interesting event to have three breeds available.

Note: probably no one cares but me and Derek(Gencon event table assigner guy), but I just realized I scheduled the Multiplayer an hour earlier than I thought. Thus we have 6 tables at that time instead of our normal 5. it throws everything off from a mathematically pure system.
