Essen Mage Wars 2016
« on: September 16, 2016, 05:53:03 AM »
So updating from the last dead thread.   Will Arcane Wonders or Mage Wars be having a meaningful presence at Essen?

Pegasus will be present and I presume that there will be demo games among their mass of tables, ...

BUT....

Is there any official event or apart competition or perhaps a purely mage wars stand, table, ambassador,  door, sticker, badge, banner or anything?

Arcane Wonders is not able to make Essen this year. I know that Pegasus held a national championship earlier this year, but I do not know if they or any of our ambassadors in Germany (or surrounding countries) have any plans for events at Essen.

Iím an Arcane Wonders Ambassador; Iíll be at Essen at the Pegasus booth and am in charge of the Mage Wars activities there. Sadly, itís almost impossible to do events at Essen. The huge halls are too noisy to concentrate during tournaments and dedicated tournament space is way too expensive. Iím always having promo cards with me but for anything more than that, Iím afraid that Essen just isnít the right event.

I just wanted to be sure, so anyone related to Mage Wars or Arcane Wonders will not be at essen this year. No Bryan Pope fantastic appearance like last year. Right?

I would feel like a complete idiot, if i miss something like that again :)

netzshuffle,  what will you be doing with the promo cards?   can we win them, do we get them by demos?  Do you just give them away?

Not that I know of. We've been talking about possibilities for the future, but this year we're not able.

Thank you for information :)

AW is one of the biggest deciding factors when comes to traveling to Essen :)

Looking forward to next year!

Just a reminder: If you really want to PLAY Mage Wars go to Copenhagen.

Viking-Con is the same time as Essen.

You can borrow and play a Paladin vs Siren spellbook, and win 1 of the 70 spellbooks. (5/mage)

Essen is great for new boardgames. Copenhagen is better for actual gaming. And this year we have PvS!

Netzhuffle, I am planning on going to Essen if i don't have to work that weekend. If i'm there i will 100% visit you at the Pegasus booth. I'm also an AW ambassador since July 2016, so pretty new to everything, but sofar its working out pretty fine. But would be nice for me to talk to  a fellow ambassador and if able, learn some interesting tips and tricks.

Kind Regards,

Jesse Volckaert

Sorryófor some reason I didnít get or missed the notifications for this thread :(

netzshuffle,  what will you be doing with the promo cards?   can we win them, do we get them by demos?  Do you just give them away?

I always have promo cards (English and German) with me at the top 3 events in Germany (SPIEL in Essen, Spielwiesn in Munich and Role Play Convention in Cologne) and you can get them by just finding me (itís easy: most of our volunteers there know whoís the Mage Wars Headjudge) and asking nicely. Bonus points if you tell me your name, where you know me from and why you love Mage Wars. Essen 2016 I gave away about 100 promo cards and was really surprised about that number, because you could only new from forum posts that I have them as we did not advertise that. :)
