Winter War - January 27 in Champaign Illinois
« on: October 03, 2017, 06:12:24 PM »
Hello everyone. We've set up a Mage Wars tournament as part of Winter War 45 on Saturday, January 27th in Champaign, Illinois. www.winterwar.org. I'll post more details when I have them included venue information and registration. The normal location is under renovation, so I'm not sure yet where in Champaign it will be. They also haven't posted the registration site yet for participants. So for now this post is just a heads up. I will post more as soon as I have the information.

Update:
The web page doesn't yet confirm, but the Winter War Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/groups/488317051201109/ has that this years Winter War will be at the Wyndham Garden Hotel in Champaign-Urbana, IL. (the regular site is being renovated)
Registration is supposed to open in the beginning of December. I'll post more information at that time. By then, the games list will be complete.
As of now, we will have 4 tables to run up to 8 games of Mage Wars for 8 hours on Saturday, January 27, 2018. After registration we can set up the matchups and register spell books.
If you go to the winter war site, for this event it says, "Presented by: Mage Wars featuring Virgil Varvel". I asked them to change that. I am definitely not a feature. I've only been playing about 6 months now, but I love the game and wanted to run an event. My friend farkas1 (who's been playing for years) will be there for any rules questions.
Arcane Wonders graciously supplied several prizes, and I've added a few others including a copy of the warlord expansion. But then the main prize is having fun playing Mage Wars with new and old friends.

While we will try to supply markers as needed, if you are playing a non-core mage, as many of you probably will, you will want to bring markers specific for your mage. Otherwise, we will probably run out. Between farkas1 and me we have at least 3 of every set with plenty of boards and stuff, but it never hurts to be prepared.

For those just checking us out at the event, I will have the four apprentice spell books available.

That's all I know to add right now.

I am going to try to make it, and spoke with one other person from my area who said that was in his plans also.

Thanks for offering to run the event. I hope that it will be a great success. I can bring some that nags that you can use for prizes if you like... leftovers from when I ran an event a while back. Drop me a note if you want to talk about that.

You can now register for the event at http://www.winterwar.org/. The cost is $4. There are about 10 prizes that arcane wonders graciously supplied. We just had a great gaming session this weekend where I was asked if there would be a trophy. I can't promise anything, but I will see what I can do.
