Hi all, I just wanted to give anyone interested a heads up that the Chicago BattleCONers will be hosting our next tournament on January 25, 2015 at the Dice Dojo (a great FLGS on the Northside - it's right next to the Bryn Mawr stop on the Red Line). The tournament will be begin at noon and will be 3-round Swiss format following limited tournament rules (meaning only Devastation characters - don't worry, we'll be giving War and Fate plenty of love once the physical games arrive). There will be prize support (JR has confirmed this).

For more information, see the following links, or feel free to post here! Looking forward to seeing all who can make it - our first tournament was a blast, and I think this one will be even better!

This reminds me I need to start/find a group playing in Indianapolis.

I have been to the Dice Dojo twice and been jealous both times

How often do you meet to play BattleCon? I travel to downtown Chicago a few times a year for work. It would be great to be able to meet up with some people and play a bit when I am there.

We meet every Monday night, either at a friend's house near Diversey or (if that's not available) at the Dice Dojo. Let me know when you'll next be in town and I'll definitely make time to meet up if possible!

And if you'll be in town during the tournament, we would love for you to join!

That depends on how many people we get - if we get more than eight, I wouldn't mind just acting as judge, which would free me up to film the event. Even if I end up playing, I'll see if I can get some video (or at least some better pictures - the ones I got of the last one were pretty lackluster).

Very sorry I missed you guys! Not only was that a birthday weekend for me, but my son was born two weeks later, so you can understand I was a little busy / preoccupied at the time. Do you still meet on Mondays? I might try to meet up and get some practice in before GenCon!

Very excited about the new season format!

Unfortunately, with the summer, our schedules have all gone a bit crazy and we don't meet too regularly anymore. A few of us meet on weekends at the Dice Dojo though. If you're interested, you can join the Facebook group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/295236377347282/)or Geekmail me.
