Greetings friends and neighbors!  After a 1 year layoff, Your Move Games is returning to Dexcon in Morristown New Jersey for 2 Big Game events!  We're having a Big game Friday July 6th at 7:00 pm and then we'll do another one at 2:00 pm on Saturday the 7th!  We'll also be hanging out running demos all day Friday as well as Saturday leading up to the big game then.

We're talking 4000 points per side here, which creates quite a lovely little mess  ;)
We'd love to see you there!

So far it's me, Marcus, Chris Dixon, Jesus and anybody else who walks up to the table.  Hopefully some of the other battleground players will show up for a while and play a game or two.  Will be in the same spot as usual, one floor down from the main lobby.  At least that's what I've been told.   Not gonna lie, the attendance has been dwindling every year.  Real shame.   However, if you can sit around on a Friday and a Saturday, look at the sites and roll some dice, it's not a bad thing.

Perhaps we'll see somebody we don't expect will come.  Tim, Dave Cheng, etc.?  One can hope for a decent turn out.

Have a good time.  It would be nice to come, but there's an Atlantic in the way.

Well, if you have it in Chicago, Madison, or Milwaukee.....this would be doable.

I guess we might have to make a date sometime in the future.  Oh, BTW.......Dwarves suck.

Hey, I played in the Battletech and Star Fleet Battles tournaments that year!  So really old school.

So, there was a low turn out of actual players but more interest from passers by.  Quite a few factions were purchased and a few demos were performed.

I only got in a few games over the weekend (Friday, Saturday).  I would of liked to play more games so we could see how some of the new rules suggestions work out, but alas it wasn't to be.  Too many interruptions and too much banter.   Gosh us nerds sure do like to talk and talk and talk.  I did buy two more sets of shiny new dice though.  It was nice to see Eric again.  We spoke a lot about the rules and came up with some suggestions to improve the game as we see it.  I will make mention of them in the house rules section.  Like I said though, we didn't get to play enough to really work them out, and I don't expect they will make it to the actual drawing board, but one can always hope.

I guess the next meeting for the battleground players will be Council.

Over all I think things went well.  I wasn't expecting much of a turn out because that weekend is always dicey.  But as Brook mentioned, we did get some quality demos in and sales where decent.  We also garnered some solid interest from players.  I didn't do anything for Sunday because Sundays are usually slowish there and I wanted to spend some time with the family.  Thanks to Brook for helping run the ship and Eric for showing up to play and add valuable input as always.  And thanks for cleaning my junk up Saturday night!  I came back downstairs after dinner intending to clean it up and I found everything put away already!
