Watch the Skies! is an awesome megagame that's happening right here in the lower mainland! October 29th morning/afternoon (so still time for Halloween parties in the evening).

If you don't know what Watch the Skies! is, then watch this!

This sounds very exciting! I'm happy to hear that one is being put on locally. I would love to join but I can't commit at this point in time.

Please keep us updated on the event

I participated in the PAX West event and it was amazing!

My husband and I are going to see if we can make this one work.

Sounds like it's too stressful for me to enjoy, like Diplomacy cranked up to 11, but I would love to see a recap of the event (or the newspaper stories from it) afterwards.

Doesn't the end of the SUSD video spoil it? Or is it different each time?

@Marwan: You bet!

@Adria: Be awesome if you could!

@Octavius: There's a number of different scenarios, so you never know exactly what the aliens are up to.

The eventbrite page says sales have ended. Have you sold out? Or cancelled the event?

I just checked link and it still looks good to me. Saying tickets on sale until Oct 29th. Could you send a screenshot of the issue?
Event is very much still happening.

Seems fixed now but this weekend when I checked it wasn't selling tickets. Very odd

Yep, saw the same thing. I thought you were sold out.
I'll change my listing at Blindly into the Fog of War Guild.
Thanks.

It's working now, and I just bought a couple tickets.


When I last checked, it just said "Ticket sales ended"


edit: If there's anyone else from Victoria wanting to go, we can get 2-3 more people in our car, and split the ferry/gas costs.

So if this event doesn't go ahead due to lack of players (not a lot of tickets sold, according to eventbrite), when would it be called off?

It's not going to be called off. Might have low-ish turnout, but there's a number of people saying they're coming that just haven't bought a ticket yet. I'm expecting a few people to just show up at the door (which isn't ideal for planning, but ce la vie).

Game was a blast! Some first-time-running hiccups, but we learned from them and adapted, and next time will be even better! To keep up to date on our future events, you can visit our Watch The Skies: British Columbia FB community @ https://www.facebook.com/WatchTheSkies.BC/

Also, Watch The Skies (BC Edition ) is being put on by a group called REAL Entertainment. There are plans in the future for doing other Megagames as well as other fun and awesome events, so feel free to check out our community page for when those things are announced.

Looking forward to next time!
