Just got back from GenCon and it's been rough getting back into regular life mode. I will write a more in-depth report later but I wanted to make sure and recognize our very own KEslinger for coming out victorious with a perfect 5-0 record!! Congratulations Kevin!!

The tournament was awesome. We had about 28 players I think, a lot of new players and some more seasoned ones. I started out strong with 3-0, but got taken out the last two games.

I will say it is the most fun tournament I've done. The various scenarios really spice it up from just "kill everyone." Plus the prize format meant people could walk away with something without having to be on the podium. For example my friend had a worse record, but won more because he took out the other player's champion in the right match.

Especially loved the random pits.

It was a great Tourney lots of fun and Alot of great players. And I loved seeing how everyone was super casual about the tournament everyone came to play the game first and compete second. There different games were crazy fun. The last one with the platform me and my opponent had a crazy battle royal on top. And loved seeing everyone's models alot of different styles gave me alot of inspiration.

That's very impressive that the tournament had 28 players. It's great to see this game taking off. I'm hoping to get everything painted up to play in next year's Adepticon tournament. Hopefully it will bring in similar numbers.

Thanks! It was a great event, and the scenarios were perfect and extremely fun to play. Everyone walked away with prizes. The dice Gods were behind me in several games which really helped in clutch situations. Gaius getting trapped under the bridge against Gene in the final game was not what i was expecting. Nor his Ur-Kek champion vs my Iocasta champion, it made the dual zone very critical and I had to get back up quick.


Thanks to the Red Republic crew: Frank, Nick and Walker for hosting another fantastic event for us! Looking forward to Adepticon. See you guys there [favor] Cheers
