Do you prefer tournaments as part of a larger wargaming show or convention, or as separate events?

My miniature wargaming tournament days are over; their presence at a wargaming con has no effect on / for me.

I do attend / play at specific boardgaming cons (ASL).

Does not matter to me, though if at cons then their is the opportunity to buy from the dealers.

Doesn't matter to me one way or the other. Tourney players help pay the bills.

Actually we found that the tourney players did not help pay the bills at our local con, when you factored in the extra space needed to accommodate them.

Tournaments are the only reason I go to Conventions. I'm in the sticks, the boondocks, think country, if you are coming up my driveway you have been driving dirt roads for the past 20 minutes.

If I'm driving 7 hours to our Con… it's because of those tournaments you have listed.

I don't do tournaments, but for a few years the local
Warhammer tourneys helped pay out venue rental for our
local convention

Separate events are great. As for a convention, I anchor my trip around a tournament or two. No tournament, no go to the con.

In Australia at least, all our cons need the tournament's to pay the bills. Exception being the Little Wars shows.
