This was interesting, thought all organized play of HPTCG was dead years ago. Can you tell us a bit more about last years' events? How many people showed up etc.
Learn To Play: Sold out, 16 players total
Cube: Sold out, 8 players
Giant Wars: 9 players
Squib: 6 players
World Championship: 14, 1 showed up super late and couldn't play the tournament, so he played the bye each round for fun.
As far as I'm aware, organized play for HPTCG was dead and NOBODY was doing anything for the game really. There was a guy at Gen Con in 2013 or 2014 that was doing very small casual thing, but nothing that I'd call "organized". I tried to have him help me and join forces, but he did not seem keen on it at all.
Doing the OP for HPTCG is still new for myself, but each year at Gen Con, I'm hoping to have it become better and better.
I'd also love to do something in the winter as far as events at a convention, but I just don't know of anything that would work for people to show up.
If you'd like player perspectives of the tournaments I've run, hopefully some players can chime in. I know that there are quite a few who read this forum.
Did you play the game back when it was originally in print? If so I'd love to hear what the scene was like in Norway.
