Same survey as the one that was started after Fall In, this time for Cold Wars.

Most of the games I saw were well attended, but there were still scores of unclaimed tickets from unfilled games at the Ticket Desk on Friday night and Saturday night.

Thanks in advance for your replies.

Two games:

Friday 2PM (in an incredibly difficult to find location, down a series of hallways and through what appeared to be a utility door):
All tickets were taken
1/4 ticket holders showed
3 walkups filled in.

Saturday 5PM (relocated from a side room into Distelfink because a game overran its time by hours, convention staff provided signage and informed inquiring players):
All tickets were taken
2/4 ticket holders showed
* 2 walkups filled in

Three games:

Friday 10AM (Regimental F & F) Not sure if any tickets left, but 3 (1/2) showed, other 3 were walk-ups.

Sat 10AM (Battlegroup WW2): All tickets taken, but only 1 showed. Managed to dragoon 2 other players.

Sat 7pm (Force on Force): All tickets taken. 4 showed; other slots filled by walk-ups.

To be fair, I did relocate the games. But did it on Thursday, and posted signs, etc.

I ran one game, Friday night at 7:00. I had listed it for eight players but had room for walk-ups. I ended up with 11 players.

I ran one game for four players. Four ticket-holders showed up, plus one brought a friend and I said OK they could share a command. There were also two veteran players, friends of mine, who had offered to fill in if there were not four players. One of them ended up coaching one side and I the other, as all were fairly inexperienced with the rules set (Command Decision 4).

My friend, Jeff, tried to run an Iron Ivan tank game on Saturday morning at 9am. Nobody showed up to play.

Two Sharp Practice games, one Friday, one Saturday. Both filled. At the Friday game I fit in one additional player who walked-up.

I was running a Check Your 6! Target Malta game Friday Night. I had planned for 6 players but can always expand. Had 4 walk ups for a total of 10 players. Everyone seemed to have a good time.

My 11am Saturday game was full with six players, though as usual I only advertise for four slots. Not sure how many said they had tickets, maybe two or three.

Of interest to note – Distlefink was half empty Friday afternoon, evening, Saturday morning and afternoon. Pretty much full Saturday evening from 7 to 10pm.
