Origins 2016?
« on: December 31, 2015, 07:01:38 AM »
I am planning to go to Origins this year instead of GenCon. Will there be MW events at Origins this year? Event submission is going on now.

If no one else is planning to do something, I can offer to run something if you all like.

Have events been planned for Origins now? I'd like to know whether I should avoid scheduling events in particular time slots once they open.

What times / day(s), if so?

Yes they have been planned. However, this week Tony is at GAMA Trade Show and so I'm not sure what times.

Will there be organized play at origins this year of Arena or Academy?

I just went through the Origins worksheet... I only see Academy this year.

Why no Arena events? I planned to go to Origins in particular to play MW Arena.

They had no origins Mage Wars tournament at all last year...

Really? That just seems odd. There is a big board game focus there.

The reason that I didn't offer to help set something up was because it sounded as if AW was going to be running events.

Anyone going to show up who wants to schedule some games informally? Feel free to PM me, if so.

See that's strange, Tony and I were just taking about the Arena tournament for Origins. I'll have to see what's up with that.

Origins 2016?

I see Mage Wars Academy on a Thursday and a Saturday. Are these two separate tournaments? Or is one the elimination rounds and the other the semifinals and finals? Or something?

The four events that I see in the workbook are all called "Mage Wars Academy Play to Win!" These are set up for two hours at 10:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. on 6/16 and 6/18. There is nothing else that I can find related to Mage Wars.

There are only a couple of days left before we all register for events. There still is no Arena event listed.

I don't want to pay for other events and then find out that there really is a tournament.

What days/times are you looking at for the games... even if it isn't a tournament, I really want to get to play other people....

No, there is not a tournament. I double checked. Sorry for the confusion.

No Arena tournament or just no tournament?
