Bi-Weekly Mage Wars Tournaments in Central OH!
« on: July 30, 2016, 11:05:25 PM »
Heya folks,

Been wanting to set this up for a long time, and that darn real life kept getting in the way, but we're finally rocking and rolling.

Every other Friday (August 12th is our next event) I'll be hosting a Mage Wars Arena Tournament at

Heroes Haven Games & Collectibles
1277 Lexington Ave
Mansfield OH 44907


EDIT --- We have an official Facebook Group for Central OH covering Columbus to Mansfield (though anyone who can attend ever is welcome to join) so we can get schedule and attendance up in both cities. It's been growing slow and steady, and I'd really like to get some BIG events going over the next year. Specifically, I want there to be an OH Championship. I will make this happen. Get added today!

https://www.facebook.com/groups/675109955982361/

Setup is at around 6pm, play starts between 6:30-7pm

$5 Entry, comes with promo card, winners will receive variety of prizes based on attendance. Extra promos, dice, posters, other swag I can dig up, store credit, all kinds of goodies.

We have a pretty decent playerbase considering we're kind of in the middle of nowhere, and most of our players are newish but loving the game regardless. Hoping to build a large regular community here, and to be hosting some larger Championship level events in the future.

Recent event had 6 in attendance (and work changes actually took 5 players from us last minute, blah!) so odds are looking good for some larger scale events!

Please find us on Facebook under Heroes Haven Games & Collectibles for event postings and questions, or PM me here, or call the shop at 419-709-8919 and ask for Justin.

Anyone traveling far for an event, please let me know ahead of time, and we'll try and adjust the time so you can attend.

Possible Domination and Academy events in the future

Hope to see ya guys!

Cheers

Justin

Mansfield Ohio is NOT in central Ohio. It's in north central Ohio. Those are two different areas. You should fix that, it might confuse people. Also you really got my hopes up for a moment. :(

No need to get quite so jumpy, sir. Regional descriptions such as this are often flexible, based on the people living in each area.

Oh. I didn't realize that sorry. I pretty much just go off of what the maps say. Sorry for being jumpy.

Sounds like you got yourself a real good regular event going there Justin! I know a few players up in Ohio and will pass this onto them. Mansfield is what about an hour out of Columbus? I look forward to hearing how your community develops!

not to sidetrack more, but it's something I learned about central Indiana. It's a pretty big place. Ohio is the same way. Mansfield is one corner of central Ohio. it's all good.

Oh. I didn't realize that sorry. I pretty much just go off of what the maps say. Sorry for being jumpy.

Sailor Vulcan,

Apologies about the area misunderstanding. I've just always heard of this area between Columbus and Cleveland as "Central OH". Didn't mean to cause confusion heh

Silverclaw Grizzly,

Thanks kindly, please do! I've actually been building the community for about 2.5 years now. Just real life has had many many stumbling blocks over the same period, so it happened in spurts and I wasn't able to fully commit to running regular events (and I had 2 other events I was running at the time also, so just bad timing)

It's also why I don't post here enough heh. I read often though!

But yes I'm very optimistic about our playgroup despite our location. I look forward to seeing it grow.
If nothing else, someone to come beat Kyle and his stupid Necromancer =p
As a Warlock player, I HATE Necromancers heh

Cheers guys

Ah you guys have Necromancer problems too huh? Can't sling an Arcane Staff without hitting one here.

I've been building Charlotte for a similar time so I can sympathize.
