We (Hal Von Hofe, Jon Martel and myself) hosted our first Warparty tournament at WBC this year.

The report on it here: WBC 2013 - Warparty Tournament

This WBC was special for so many reasons. In 2008, 2009 and 2011 we focused solely on playtesting and demoing Warparty. We had over 200 people playtest Warparty during those years, but we never took time out to play any other games.

We always envisioned that someday our game would be published and we would host our own tournament there. It finally happend!

Also we looked forward to enjoy WBC for all the other games as well, something we were never able to do in the past because we were so focussed on the task at hand.

Here is what we were played while at WBC.

One of my favorite games. My only regret is that we only had a chance to play this once.

We played the Eclipse expansion twice and had an absolute blast. We were actually considering playing it again towards the end, but we ran out of time. The games were long, but enjoyable.

We ran a couple of playtests of a new proto-type we are working on which is completely unrelated to Warparty.

The feedback was really good, but we left the convention with plenty of ideas for some tweaks, nothing major though which means we are getting closer to where we want to be.

I tried to play this with a guy who had just purchased it there. He had read through the rules, but being that it was both of our first times at it progress was extremely slow. The game is rather complex. After a few hours he had an event that he needed to attend, which was fine by me. It seemed like we finally getting the hang of it and turns were moving much more quickly by the end of it.

This was my first time playing this and it wasn't the best experience. In all fairness, one of the players messed up on the rules so that made things worse. It seems like a great idea, but the execution seems a little clunky, then again it could've been the player who messed up the rules which spoiled things.

I didn't play this, but the two guys I was with, Hal von Hofe and Jon Martel did. They had been itching to play this for a while and they enjoyed the game.

This was on my list to play, but Jeremy the designer and I just missed each other on timing. We was nice enough to come and check out our Warparty tournament though. I do plan on doing some playtesting of this for him. It looks like it will be a blast!

Of course this list would not be complete without Warparty!

All though I technically didn't play it (the first time ever for a WBC), Hal and Jon both did. They played in the tournament in separate rounds in the role of "Eliminator". They were set up to play only in the situation where there were an odd number of teams and they were handicapped, playing solo, without choice of sides or moving first, no quest cards, and a reduced starting income. In both of their games they were very close to winning, but didn't actually eliminate anyone. Maybe less severe handicaps next time!
