As they don't yet have retail space, http://www.miniaturemarket.com/ isn't in a position to host events.

I have received provisional prize support for regular tournaments, given that we can find a place to play. Specifics will kinda depend on the traction we get, if any. Most likely, it will be something like ding & dents for the local showroom, or specfic ding & dents of their choosing. I would act as the tournament organizer, and there would be no entry fee.

That is provided that we get enough people, and we get a space. I'm thinking the Dierberg's atrium at 270 / Olive & Craig in Creve Coeur could work, but I'm open to suggestions in that general area. I don't plan on approaching them until I have a sense that we can actually make it happen, though. Is anyone on BGG in the STL area interested?

I'm around there on holidays, and a few other weekends. If we could get it sometime in the next 2 weeks that would work out well, but I understand if that's too short of notice.

I'd consider driving down from Springfield, IL for a tourney. We've got a small group going here, so there might be others.

There are already tournaments held occasionally at Game Nite on Watson. Game Nite also hosts a weekly LCG night with casual and league play on Saturday nights at 6 (I'm actually about to leave to attend this for the firs time).

Also, the newish Dierbergs on Manchester (east of 270) is used for a monthly board game meetup. People play in the café upstairs.

There are no plans for a "retail game space" from MM I believe, they have a store front only so they can sell GW stuff. So don't hold your breath there.

Game Nite's Netrunner league is firing up again soon, as well as the usual bevy of tourneys on Saturdays. Check out their website for more information.

I'm down for this, I love getting as much competition in as I can.

One request is that you try to keep it separate from Game Nite's tournament days so I can make both. They host a Netrunner tournament once a month on the last Saturday.

For those interested, they also started their Season 2 league this Saturday.

Dropped by Game Nite to sign up for league play, and got in 5 matches: thx Dovbear (x2), Steve, Jason, and Anthony!

Would love to make it to next Saturday's tourney. We'll see.

Justin, you part of the meetup.com group? Dovbear goes to most of the Game Nite meet ups and always brings his decks. I bring mine as well but don't always make it out.

Amazingly, I've still never been to one. I'll keep that in mind, thx!

Is the Game Nite tourney only for league players? And what time does it start? The Game Nite Event calendar doesn't list it.

I don't know. And I think reg is at 11AM, tourney at 12PM. I'd call to confirm, though.

I've been playing in the S2 league on Saturdays. That ended last week, and they're giving out prizes/leftovers tonight. Anyone else going?

Just in case not everyone is aware, there is a Netrunner tournament this Saturday the 28th at Game Nite. Entry fee is $5. Sign-up is at 11am. Tourney starts at 12pm. Store credit prizes for the top 3. From what I understand, all the entry fees are turned directly into prizes too. I'll be there, so you all should be able to get some easy wins ;P

Soooo, the Game Nite scene is apparently dying. I know it's not active league, but even during it, fewer and fewer people attended as the weeks passed. Today's monthly A:NR tourney had two (2) people: me, and a guy that was already at Game Nite judging something (an employee?).

Wizard's Wagon is apparently trying to get something going. I hope they do.

Do people still show up to play this on Saturdays? I might be able to make it today, not sure.

No, the Game Nite scene has basically collapsed as far as I can tell.

I might go to Wizard's Wagon tonight.
