It's never too early to start making excuses!


We might well have 3-4 other organizations co-located with us this year, too.

^  Knowing you, your excuse probably isn't random so much as it is odd/unusual.  :hehe:

I'll provide a copy or two of Zurmat for the booth if that helps.

I could help with the WFX if you need help there as well.

That very kind of you.  We can certainly work something out to get you guys into the event program! :)

As to the CPX's, that's a full-time job for the weekend, and you've got games to sell!   :party:

hey folks!

I've accounted for the usual booth crew that we have working our area at Origins.

If there's any of y'all out there that have not sent up a flare that you're interested in being a part of the Wargame HQ team at Origins.

Make no mistake about it, this is a game convention, but it's some actual work at the game convention as a GM.  You're responsible for set-up and teardown, as well as teaching / shepherding the game, plus some booth set-up and teardown for the team as a whole.  We usually get some free toys out of the deal, plus a chance to hang out with a bunch of pretty cool game folks (plus, y'know... me) and one of the biggest shopping halls you'll get for game stuff here in the US.

If you're up for it, PM me and let's chat.

Additional note on Origins 2022

As of right now, they are requiring both masks, and proof of vaccination to enter the hall.

I don't know if that will change by showtime or not.

Moreover, I don't want a single, solitary peep about whether or not this is a good idea or a bad idea, or an over-reaction, and under-reaction, or a perfectly-sized action.

I DON'T CARE

I'm not providing that info to start a flame war, but so that people can make the most informed decision possible about whether or not to attend either to just run around & play games, or come work with us at the Wargame HQ.

When can we expect to see events getting listed? (And, yes, unless something goes entirely sideways, that means I'm in this year!)

Holy crap, the Hyatt Regency rooms with the Origins rate went live today at 1:00pm and I completely forgot about it. I just went in and was able to secure a room there. Origins 2022, here I come!

not sure about the official master list, but I know what we submitted and they usually give us blanket approval of them.  I'm just trying not get out over our skis and release something that ends up not being accurate

Looks like event schedule should be posted on May 9th. Event registration begins May 21. Seems a little closer than normal, doesn't it? Course, it's been a few years, so maybe I'm misremembering things.

Definitely closer to normal. I don't know if it's (1) late Origins 2021 / early Origins 2022, (2) TTE switchover, (3) typically predictable GAMA disfunction, (4) newly-generated GAMA disfunction, or (5) some combo of the above.  But they are very late in getting their crap together this year.

I'm not explicitly saying you should post a tentative list of events and when they might be taking place, but I dare say we all know what the words tentatively, subject to change, etc., mean should you decide to take that calculated risk.
