I know the event list is still in flux but just wondering if there will be any games for DBA v3 games? Casual/learning games, or just tournament games?

Here is the schedule so far:

Thank you.

Hmm. Hasn't made it to the Historicon list of games yet. Surely Wednesday must mean Thursday?

Never went before- it's a trip from NYC. Was thinking of going this time.

Online doesn't make it easy to figure out how much it costs for a non-member to go for a day or two.

Hotels are about 79+ a night. A con ticket for non members is $50 USD and it covers the whole con. Not sure if there is a weekend only ticket.

If I read it correctly, also full convention admission for non-members is $50 USD for both online pre-registration and on-site registration. That covers 2 or more days from Thurs. thru Sunday. (There's also some free gaming time on Wed.)

There is a one-day (on-site only) admission of $25 USD for members or non-members for any single day except Sunday. The single day admission for the abbreviated Sunday session is $15. USD

I'm running a 25mm DBA 3.0 tournament on Friday with plenty of loaner armies available.

There is a 15mm DBA 3.0 tournament on Saturday.

I'm also running A Game of Ice and Fire (Big Battle – High King tournament) on Saturday night. The game is a variation of DBA 3.0 using some HOTT rules and my medieval modifications.

I've got extra armies for all my events.

Please join us. Historicon is worth the trip (and I'm coming from Atlanta).

I know this is going to sound strange but do you have a sign saying "DBA here"? A friend is going for their first time and I just know her social anxiety will have her not finding you and she will not ask anyone. We all have our quirks, I know. Just hoping she'll actually play and not just watch the whole time.

I've been before and sometimes finding a game that you are signed up for is nigh impossible without asking or a sign.

It is sometimes hard to find the table. I usually just look for the rulebooks on the table. :)

The convention program usually really good map showing where all the games and Dealers are.

The tables are in the back of the main gaming area near the Flames of War Gang.

(At least as per last year's set up). They normally put out sign up sheets at table in the back.

Also just ask for Tom Thomas and I'll be happy to help.
