What we must all remember is no matter the game we were all newbies at one point.

I promised a new scoring format and here it is. At Gen Con and Gen Con only this year matches that go to time are considered TIES. Not wins. Kill the other mage.

Will post more details when I have a better connection.

Have you been able to distinguish a time and location for a game of Mage Wars? I would like a game, but am not good enough for the tournament. You said Friday June 15 would be the day for informal playing after the dealer room is closed. I believe this is around 6pm but I am not certain. Where and what time do you plan on meeting to play a game of Mage Wars? I would like to know. I would like to plan around this informal Mage Wars event and I also have to coordinate with my ride (I am not staying in the center of the city). Thank you.

I was briefly considering checking out Mage Wars for the funsies and nostalgia. I'm glad that this dilemma was solved for me. Haha

Nothing like the taste of 3 year old sour grapes on the forum. Pretty sure no one is excited to see new shade. Forget funsies. Play to show the world what can be done without a broken book.

Whats the scoring?:
Win
T
Loss

And what happens in the semi-finals if one of them ends in a tie?

Regardless this should mean that people bring books designed to take down the enemy mage fast, rather than winning on more life with Sunfire Amulet etc.
Still in the semis and finals a "you can´t kill me mage" could still be a winning strategy.

Hope to be back at GenCon in 2019 or 2020 :)

Ok Arcane Wonders fans here is the complete list of events being run by the super competent and handsome Arcane Wonders Event Team(yeah it's me again) at Gen Con this year:

https://www.gencon.com/event_finder?host=Arcane+Wonders

If you scroll down you'll obviously find the Mage Wars events. Arena Practice on Thursday. Arena Tournament Friday and Saturday. Also an Academy Tournament on Sunday.

We'll also be demo's of other Arcane Wonders games. Sheriff of Nottingham, Viral, and Spoils of War. Also two brand new games: Critical Mass and RWBY: Combat Ready!

So stop by and say hi!
