Beautiful!

We absolutely loved it last year, and hope to make it again this year!

Thanks so much for putting on this event.

No X-Wing tournament has been planned. Care to organise one?

There are plenty of tables so you should be able to snag one for your game.

X-wing'ers should feel free to respond on this thread to pick up the lightsaber.

You introduced me to Killer Bunnies, remember?

I see that it has been requested so now that I know I'm not in BC, it is time to announce that I will teach / demo the following:

1000 - 1200 Android Netrunner
teaching decks, for those interested in the buzz.

1230 - 1530 Cuba Libre
The smallest COIN game, and easiest to learn. The knife fight training ground.

1600 - 2000 Andean Abyss
or Fire in the Lake (if shipping email is correct and arrives)
A little more depth and time. If there is enough demand and space could possibly have both running.

Bob returning the page... Consider killer bunnies brought to the KanataCon, but a warning - there is no telling how long a game will last. Probably best not to include it in the blitz.

Considering running a Agricola or Terra Mystica Tournament, if there's sufficient interest I can start setting this up.

Food for KanataKon:

When you register at the door, why not buy some food tickets as well?

Lunch is only $5 and consists of:
1) Choice of burger or sausage
2) Cole Slaw
3) Beverage (i.e. a generic soft drink)
Lunch is intended to run between noon and 1pm.

If you prefer to wait for the dinner bell, for $10 you get:
1) Choice of burger, sausage or 2 chicken drumstick
2) Choice of bacon wrapped corn or potato
3) Cole Slaw
4) Soft drink
5) Dessert

Dinner hours are nominally 5 - 6pm.

Can't decide? Why not do both for a mere $12?

Yum!

I'm just a meager 10 Kyu (when I'm on my game), but will certainly play a game or two (long overdue). Can bring a mat and glass stones myself if need be.

Depending how things go, might be up to teaching some DC Deck Builder, and if we've covered the rules for it in time, the Crisis co-op expansion for it.

Hey, we just discovered this event after visiting the Kobolds Corner store. We will be coming by at some point to run some demos (and full games possibly) of Golem Arcana (www.golemarcana.com)

We are Emissaries (official representatives from the organized play program at Hairbrained Schemes, the publisher)

Not sure what time we will come by but we will see you all there!

Looking forward to a fun day of gaming!

Had a great time! My thanks to the organizers. I think there were more out than last year. Any chance of making this twice a year? Or quarterly.
' Yes, I will volunteer to help.
I got a game going of "Baltimore and Ohio" and "Macao".

I believe a notebook was found - I think Steve Larkin is in possession of it - there was talk about a CSI investigation with handwriting analysis or some-such-thing....
