A Lot of Releases? Check! A Lot of Pre-Orders? Check! A Lot of News? Check! ~ #TuesdayNewsday 9/26/23

The Armchair Dragoons’ #TuesdayNewsday is the weekly update you need to stay in-the-know on the strategy gaming world

We started releasing the initial splash of content around our joint survey with Beyond Solitaire, covering the community’s favorite solo/solitaire wargames.  We dropped a blitz of content on Friday, with more coming this week

So the dataset with all the games is out there, and people are encouraged & invited to crunch their own data on the list, whether it’s based on publishers, years the games were released, or whatever else.

🎲🏒 Our hockey jersey re-order is still up and time’s running out! 🏒🎲

We need to get this in quickly b/c it’s hockey season prep time, and we’ve got literally hundreds of other actual hockey teams wanting to get their orders in, too.

Total cost (including US shipping) is $70; we’re not planning on any overseas shipping b/c of the unpredictability of shipping / customs costs.
We need a minimum of 20 orders to launch and we’re a little under halfway there, so please get those orders in ASAP

Deadline is 10/6/23

Convention Details

  • We’re almost two-thirds sold out
    Badges are $40 for the weekend
  • We’re being hosted by The Gamer’s Armory, and they’re planning to open early on Sunday just for us, so we can get an additional game session or two in, before the general public gets in the doors
  • Attendance is capped on this one because of the limited floorspace we’ve got inside the store and we want to make sure every player gets plenty of time on the tables.
  • As noted on the convention site, we do not have a hotel attached to the facility. You can find local hotels here.
  • As a reminder, Regimental Patron-level Patreon supporters get a free badge for all Armchair Dragoons-hosted events.
