START TIME: 7:30pm Friday night

LOCATION: CONFIRMED -
Indianapolis Marriott Downtown (350 W Maryland St)
Indiana Room E (labeled “all night gaming room”). 1st floor, down the west and hallway. Lots of table space.
We will try and stake out a spot there. This way friends without Gen Con badges can join.


I know excitement for it is much diminished due to our SWM events already having taken place at VassalCon.

That doesn't mean we can't still play SWM at Gen Con!

Unfortunately, it looks like our SWM event was not solidified in time to make the official catalogue. We are having an unofficial event anyway.

Just a straight 200pt competitive tournament, current maplist, everything legal including vset 22 available to use.

Since we have no idea what table space in the convention center will be like, it will be a last minute call on location. If we can find table space in the convention center, we'll do it there. If not, we can always do a hotel lobby. I am staying in a hotel directly across the street from the convention center (connected by skywalk), we can play in there if nowhere else.

Renegade minis!

If you are interested, let me know here. Send me a PM and I'll give you my cell phone #.

The event will be "unofficial" as far as Gen Con is concerned, but will use all current official rules. Please familiarize yourself with those.

Players will be responsible for knowing all errata, floor rules, etc.
Changes can be found here: http://www.bloomilk.com/Forums/default.aspx?g=posts&t=20395
and here: http://www.bloomilk.com/Forums/default.aspx?g=posts&t=28568

This will be an official Star Wars™ Miniatures SWMGPA (Star Wars Miniatures Gamers Players Association) sacnctioned event. The SWM GPA Floor Rules will be in effect.
(The Star Wars Miniatures SWMGPA (Star Wars Miniatures Gamers Players Association) Floor Rules and the Star Wars Miniatures Game Rules should be read and understood by all players wishing to compete in sanctioned events. All SWMGPA members participating in SWMGPA-sanctioned Star Wars™ Miniatures events must abide by these rules.)


Maplist
-- We will be using a shortened Maplist!
It will be the current Restricted Maplist MINUS Outlaw City and Starport Terminal
(both maps will not make the next restricted list as they were proven to be abusable)
Quote:
Throne Room
Starport District
Bothan Spynet (Spynet HQ)
Rhen Var (Ice World Citadel)
Cantina
Ravaged Base (Commander's Office)


I will bring 1 copy of each map, and will lend them first come first served for those needing a map.


Players expected:

good luck Timmy

playing in person is the BEST
how can people use all the cool made over the years on Vassal?

my advice, Tim , is to Owen and Beru Lars in your squad, just to use the miniThumpUp

It's something we can collectively figure out when we decide who is interested. When would you be available?

I usually end work around 5pm, so probably a little after 6 by the time I’m able to drive/park. If that’s too late, or other need to start earlier, I can see if I can get off earlier in the day.

I don't see why 6:30 couldn't be a reasonable start time. Let's make that a tentative target unless most others can't do that time.

Looks like an old-skool player gathering! Les Eller is looking to join us too!

so it now looks like a 7:30 pm start time. I'd say that is likely to be set at this point, but keep an eye on this thread.

Also - PM me if you plan on playing and I'll give you my phone number. Table space could be the one tricky part. I really have no idea this year if we can slip into a free spot at the convention center. Worse case scenario, we can do it in the lobby of the hotel across the street (Marriot) where I am staying.

Location will be posted here once it is established, but it may very well be a last minute decision. I guess that's why they pay the big bucks to make events official, lol
