The Hawthorn Suites are located at 101 Trade Center Drive, Champaign, IL 61820, and can be reached by phone at (217) 398-3400. Mention that you are attending Winter War to learn about the convention room discount! This is the location of the event.

There are lots of other hotels in town though for booking rooms if needed. According to the Winter War website, Hotel Update
The Hawthorne Suites are still undergoing renovation, but will be ready for us in time for the convention, so no worries there. They don't currently have a website for you to book through, so if you want to reserve your room, please make sure to call them. You can find the phone number listed below.

I thought that it was becoming a Holiday Inn though. I'm not 100% confident that it is still Hawthorne Suites, It shows up on IHG (which is Holiday Inn I think). I talked to Susan though (one of the organizers) and the number is supposed to work for reservations at least.

Hey... the Net says that the Hawthorn Suites are permanently closed... where is this being held again?

I just found the note on the WW site that notes that the hotel will be open again in time for the con... you just have to call them to reserve a room since there is no web site to use to do so.

Seems strange that I signed up for it, and didn't even notice where it was....

One thing that I didnt note earlier, is that having Slow from the swamp doesn't impede Zombies when using Zombie Frenzie.

Johktari can walk into swamp and still act.

She also has synergies with crocs and falcons, who don't care about swamp.

Not getting Pulled is also a nice thing if you have a bow equipped and want to stay away. If you place two swamps in the center zones you can walk from one to the other and basically make melees worthless.

I received Codex and Spirit Island today!
Well... I'm off for a moment... sure back for a new arena expansion... or one day, who knows...

Thank you AW and everybody on the forum for these great MW-years!
Exid

I am also searching for alternatives since a while now. I have to admit I found nothing that soaked me in as deep as mage wars. No other game gave me the feeling that every move counts and every situation is the result of my gameplay and planning.

Anyway Spirit island is absolutely great. Characters feel very different and your choices matter (whereas in gloomhaven everything you do is kind of good). I was looking at Codex for several times now, but I am pretty offended by its price to get it in Germany. Please let me know what you think about it! Thanks!

Coming back to this forum makes me remember the good times before paladin or at least before academy. That's sad and happy feelings together. Sad they are over, happy they existed! Thank you all for sharing that time!
