What I mean by that is, when you sign up on warhorn.net, we will have to clear you to register for games you want to play. We only take money at the event, why I am not sure, so you can register for games before you pay, as you will have to pay for the convention at the convention.

Does this clear things up ok keep them hiding in the dark?

That's a big door prize from Wizards, but it makes me wonder whether they're getting rid of A&A product. Given the timing, you'd think they'd give away a big "welcome to 4th edition D&D" packet, which does not exist as far as I know, but should.

Hope I can attend, in any case!

It is a nice combination with the starter pack & the expanded rules/map pack. I am not certain why they didn't give out something for 4th ed. I agree it does seem odd at the least. Most likely because this isn't much of an RPG con, at least not compared to how it used to be.

Interesting, I did not find any WOTC mini events. I thought at least a Star Wars minis or War at Sea or even an Axis&Allies minis game.

Yeah,
We didn't have anyone who wanted to run them, but we do have some room for open gaming, and with people getting the starter packs I would imagine that there will be some A&A events happening.

Plus we typically have some events appear on the day of the Con, as people show up and say " Hey want to run (insert game)" and if we have room we try to accommodate our members

Sounds great. Gas money from the Grand Rapids-area and my own boardgaming plans keep me from attending this year. It sounds like a fun trip to the East Coast.

I'm the boardgame director and prize co-ordinator of the group. I think they would probably save a 4th addition D&D freebie for a much large convention/audience.
