I saw Gencon posted the list of events so that people can start making wishlist for when signups go live. I didn't see any by stonemaeir, though maybe I was just misusing the interface. Is there any information on what kinds of events they'll have? I did see a scythe tournament and I'm hoping to partake in it but I don't think it's through stonemaier.

I cannot attend, but a good friend is (and will usually look for stuff for me). I'm pretty interested in what's going on, myself...

Nathan: You should be able to find our open game nights if you search their system for "Stonemaier". Also, various people are running events for specific games of ours.

The conference room we've used the past two years is under construction, so our strategy is a bit different this year: Just a few open game nights, a shared booth with Meeplesource, and private meetings all day every day for pitches, partners, and the press (the private meetings are scheduled through a different platform, not the regular events system).

Thanks Jamey, I see those events now! Very much looking forward to it and if I make it out of the qualifying round, this will be a great way to get one last practice round of scythe in before the finals

Ashley: I'm not aware of a Scythe tournament, but Nathan alludes to one above, so maybe?

Jamey: I'm hoping to enter the one mentioned by Jamie (this could get confusing) below. There are 4 events for qualifiers with 15 players allowed in each and then finals take place on Sunday with 20 people. So it looks like the top 5 from each qualifier advance, not sure how they'll do it. Maybe three 5 player games, winners of each automatically advance and then the other 8 spots are determined by highest score possibly? Then the final tournament is scheduled to be twice as long so that will likely be four 5 player matches with the winners of each squaring off in a final 4 player game (maybe with you as a surprise 5th contestant, that'd be pretty awesome!)

I'll be playing my first 5 player game on memorial day so I'm not sure how I'll fare but I'm excited to approach the game in a more competitive stance. Usually I'm just playing for fun and trying to fill out the achievement sheet. So it'll be interesting for sure.

Although it is not an official Stonemaier event, I believe it is hosted by a Stonemaier ambassador.

No
I was in the ER at wish list submission time.
Submitted an hour later.
The slot I had on my wish list was full.
