"Can we discuss chariots armor, speed, whatever… C"

How 'bout them Armored Chariots whose drivers are high on speed?
Or, them Speedy chariots driven by armored whatevers?

Who has pre-registered, and which games are you going to be playing?

John Michael Priest27 Sep 2017 2:50 a.m. PST

Is there another update to the pel?

Carp, I will answer with shameless self promotion. My son Ryan will run a Star Wars game Friday morning. I follow with a cowboy game at 1pm. I also have my first flea market table on Saturday. Come take advantage of a rookie.

Rotundo: Having been a Wally's virgin last Cold Wars (actually Mrs. Carp held down the table while I scooted off for one of my games), I shall make every effort to show up and haggle you down to your socks (for entertainment purposes--my wife and I had a grand time at a Jamaican straw market--the interplay was rich, humorous, and friendly, and the buyer and the seller were happy with the final result). BTW, have you got your sales patter down yet? It takes a clever salesperson to cry his wares creatively.

Actually I will ply them with alcohol. Every deal made will follow with a shot. I have the morning session so it may be mimosas.

Yes! My games are in the PEL addenda! I am looking forward to trying out my idea about running several games simultaneously on the same tabel. Each infantry piece represents 50 men (a company), Each player commands a brigade of 5 regiments with an assigned area for intiial commitment to the field.

The Confederate have 2 four gun batteries which may operate by pairs (sections) from any area of the board on their side of the table and may freely fire at any troops within their line of sight. The Union players have two six gun batteries.

Accumulating smoke will affect firing and movement. I have tested it a bit at home but not with a large group. It will be noisey and chaotic and a challenge. I want players to have fun and have a good time. We'll see.

I am really excited about getting back into gaming again. See you at Fall-In.

Pre-registration will close in 9 days on October 13 (and if it's as it usually is, that's just after 23:59:59 on Thursday, October 12

Here's a shameless plug! If anyone remembers the large Prohibition game from a few years ago, 5 Guys and a Lawyer are running a couple of wine and beer soaked events again. Friday night at 8p.m. is a multiple player Gladitorial game where the crowd is sure to be pleased

Saturday night is your chance to ride to glory in our full contact Roman Nascar ( chariots) event.

Come one , come all, and be sure to be entertained!

Ok, please have a look online soon… All of the post PEL events have been given tables, etc…. I pulled the data and cleaned it up for the PEL addendum and sent it off to the YM admin to post.

These games will be available to register for before pre-reg closes by this Sunday I believe. I have 21 more to finish up.. the last event just came in on October 1st.

It looks like the show shaped up nicely to have a full tournament booking, excellent Hobby U classes, a full Vendor Hall and just over 300 events. It should be a very solid show.

As usual, Will Call will be available if you don't get to preregister.

The finishing touches are going into the program and the tee-shirts are being printed.

The artwork will once again be a stretched canvas picture of the convention artwork available on the website for viewing (17"x24") I believe.

The tee-shirts will be printed this year with the image on the back of the shirt and the HMGS logo on the front in a color to match the print itself. I do apologize that I have used a tannish color for a lot of the Fall In! shirts!

Toys for Tots will be there in their usual place, bring lots of joy to under privileged youth and to we the gamers in the forms of auctions and raffles…. please also, don't forget to bring a toy donation too!

It has been a please working with you all for this years show!

One last thing.. unfortunately, we did have a few game cancellations. I will be reaching out to the pre-reg attendees so that they can schedule a new event in their place.

I am a little behind on this, but I apologize!

Please check the Cold Wars website as I think events has opened for CW 2018 already!

Salutations, CapnCarp!

Waybackwhen, I tried to convince the NASAMW to hold a Bronze Age theme tournament at Historicon, and produce T-shirts with the slogan "Hot Sumer Knights" …

Hey Danny. Still looking for our Friday 8:00 o'clock game to show up in the Addendum we spoke about on Saturday

Pre-reg online is still in operation as of 5 minutes ago. Do what the nice man says and pre-register, both for the benefit of the organizers and for yourself, unless the prospect of standing in long lines delaying your fun seems preferable.

114th…. it shouldn't say that…. are you sure your scree/browser is refreshed. All solid dates should have been up and [posted a long while ago… I will check and talk to the IT guy.

Gordo… your event was pulled and I am not sure what happened to it. I assure you, it is available and in the system… too late for pre-reg, but tickets will be available on site and it is in the program…. both yours and Mike's are in.

2 weeks basically until the show….
Program is going to print this week,
Tickets will be pulled and printed next week,
Tee shirts are ordered and will be picked up before the show
The art print raffle is in hand….

There are only a few other items to square away. I sent an email to check when Will Call will open also.

I am both excited and sad. Sorry for not being clear enough on events this year…. I will be sending out an email EARLY next year and the dates will be set on the Fall In! website ASAP.. probably right after this years show.

Next year needs to be the best show for Fall In! ever as it will likely be my last as a CD for a while, if not ever. So many of you have helped make Fall IN! the fastest growing and most profitable show HMGS has.. thank you all for being a part of that with me. If you haven't been going, you don't know what you have been missing….

This year, the vendor hall is SOLD OUT and attendance looks like it might just finally break 2000! I don't have anything too crazy happening unfortunately…. I reached out to a few organizations to bring in some new stuff for you guys and it all kind of never got off the ground.

More soon as we get closer to the show date.
