  1. SteamCon US Details?

    A group of us already called the hotel and booked our rooms in advance. I didn't make the call, so I can't say what deal we used, but we're all locked in for SteamCon USA. Call the hotel and ask. I think we went with a Veterans discount or AAA, but still said our room was for SteamCon so that the Con got the credit for the booking. As far as events, there will be the Nationals and "most likely" the last chance qualifier tournaments for that. Probably some other events like Captain, My Captain, Multi Ball Mayhem. Seminars might include painting / modeling, a Steamforged Press Conference, they'll be showing off their new games and models. Hopefully, they'll have a lot of vendors for widgets and more. We can get an ey

  5. Dallas, Texas Players?

    Welcome to Texas! Be sure to check us out on Facebook at the following groups: Guild Ball Houston San Antonio Guild Ball DFW Guild Ball Guild Ball Central Texas
  6. I worked damn hard to make sure this event was going to happen at the correct location with enough time for everyone to make plans to travel to it. I just want to see it be a successful event. I contacted and called people all over the state of Texas and at Steamforged to make this happen, lets get out there and game..
  7. I feel like I've had this conversation before. I know there is distance involved for everyone from all of the states involved in the 3rd regional Championships as well as anyone else who would like to attend that doesn't live in Austin, Texas. Texas is big. Where would be a good central location for this event? When would you have scheduled it? For me, its a little over 200 miles one way, I'm riding up with a group of friends and rooming with them in the hotel to split costs.The event has been on the books for more than 6 months, my guys and I planned early to try to attend not just this event, but SteamConUSA as well. (note: I'm not complaining about SteamConUSA being in Chicago in December). Right now, its 5 of us from Houston, 2 from Dallas, and I don't know where the other two are from, but they're not the winner from the Lubbock, Tx event. I'm just wondering where all the players are and why they haven't signed up yet.Events like this can be planned for, Jet blue out of Long Beach, Ca to Austin, Tx is about $150.00 round trip. I know this because I used to live in both Austin and Los Angeles, Ca. Southwest and other airlines while not much better are an option. Yes, I know I can't speak for other players planning or financial situations, or anything else. I just want those that could make the event to try to do so. I played and won the Fat Ogre Regional Qualifier. I would like to play against the other qualifiers and other guild ball players that can make it to Wargames Con, because right now I'm going to travel 200+ miles to play my friends and a couple of other people for a Regional Championship that could potentially qualify me or one of them for a seat in the National tournament, but in reality, I just want to play against different people and have an awesome weekend. I worked damn hard to make sure this event was going to happen at the correct location with enough time for everyone to make plans to travel to it. I just want to see it be a successful event.
  8. For those of you attending, @RedSam, @Ranthoron, @Trilodean, etc. We're up to 10 sign ups and I know of a few more that are planning to go. Looks like we might make a game of it after all!

  9. @RedSam I feel like I've had this conversation before. Before I begin, I want to make a note that I wrote that post initially for groups in Texas on facebook, so the comment quoted above was from a post to a Texas based group.
