Work in Progress: Warmaster International Playtestweekend
« on: November 03, 2012, 11:41:30 AM »
To all and sundry..   

I will not try and revive the old style EuroGT, which had a great run for over 10 years and 10+ events in that periode, but I am willing to give a new event a go in the first half year of 2013. To be more precise, sometime in the months March-May.

I do have some locational options in the fair and historical city of Bergen op Zoom, with, and without attached hotel(rooms) but I need to get a handle on the amount of people that would be interested. For this I will put a description of what I envision this weekend to be.

1) First and foremost, the intention behind the weekend is primarily to be a SOCIAL event, in the traditional style of EuroGT, a get-together, where games are non-competitive and discussion/debate are a logical part of the set-up.
2) As this is a gaming event, game we will. I will explain this a bit more in 3), but ideally we will have a BIG walk-in game on friday, starting in the later afternoon, with new arrivals actually bringing reinforcements to a multi-player battle on a BIG table.  On saterday and sunday the aim will be to have at least 2 rounds, probably 3 on saterday.
3) The focus of the games on Saterday and Sunday will be on PLAYTESTING. I will work with the playtest-team to have two distinctive packages of testable rules. One for each day.
4) The aim is to allow those that need to travel from afar to have a weekend of "fun", but registration for either the saterday or the sunday for locals/people that wont be able to stay over, should be an option too.

So, I will put up a poll (or two), please respond in the poll or in the thread, and give me an idea of the feasibility of the event !

I would love to be able to come along to this event but my wife says a definite "No" to flying to Europe, from Australia, for a weekend of wargaming!!

I tried to explain that we were going to be playtesting rules but she wouldn't relent....  :(

If there is enough people comming, I will look into setting up some Google hangout to allow participation in the games/discussions....

Alternatively....  make it a holliday and visit some nice stuff, including the medival city of Bergen op Zoom   8)

Big Red, maybe we could hook up on the day with the guys in Europe via a skype/facetime/satellite broadcast  ;D It would truly be an "universal" international event then.

Something along these lines can be arranged....   A google hangout would work too....  allows for multiple users on webcam at the same time !

I adjusted the Poll for all you antipodeans and crossatlantians  8)

In line with the earlier comments in the thread....  I am all for setting up some regular sessions online, to go over questions with life examples and possibly to play a game over a table that is on two continents.......

Definitetly interested! If the date is known a few months (4-6) in advance, it shouldnt be a problem. Maybe I can drag some other Austrians with me. :)

Since our Prime Minister was announced as the Australian PM we can officially represent Australia as well. :D

I will come over for at least a day, 3 days if the home front can be secured.

Depending on the venue I can bring along some Belgian beers - how's that for motivation!

I will check in my gaming group whether somebody else would be willing to come - Belgium is not that far away...

Not finalized yet. Venue wont be a problem, I am talking with lodgings and trying to get a decent quote for roomrates.

Timingwise I still want to do this before summerhollidays, and with enough leeway to allow those with busy schedules to participate so we are looking at a spring / May-ish weekend (which has me steering clear of  Pentacaust......)

I would love to come but I won't be able to justify to the wife why my hobby needs me to leave the country with the travelling costs that entails!
