 i'm thinking about entering into nationals at GenCon this year...if for nothing else to get the participation card.  Sacrificing what equates to an entire day at GenCon is tough for me, but i may just do it.  Even if i go 0-8 (or however many rounds there are), at least i'll have played X-Wing...against good players no less!

 

 

I would recommend going to a National tourney if you can.  A bunch of us went to Canadian Nationals and it was worth it just for the exclusive card and the chance to play some games against stronger opponents.  The fact that US Nationals is at Gencon makes it even better in that you could pickup early releases of stuff.  You should totally do it!  I know missing a day of "shopping" at Gencon is a bummer, but if you get knocked out early you can go back to shopping, if you're winning then you'll walk away with some good prizes.

This year will be my 11th year at GenCon, so i'm no stranger to being there.  I am, however, a sucker for alternative art cards...

Been a while since I've played, but I'll be there with my stuff and I'd be up for a game or two unless pathfinder needs me.

Hello all,

I apologize in advance for not reading through all 80+ pages of this thread!

Does anyone here play at Eternal Games or Gamers Gauntlet?

I've played at Eternal a few times -- nice places and good folks.  I won't be back for a few weeks due to work commitments, though.

Lots here play at gg and eternal. Eternal has regular tourneys every friday and gg has casual play every tuesday. Eternal is probably is the best place if your looking for some tournament style games. They had 12 there tonight.

I go to Eternal maybe once or twice a month.  They have a pretty good crowd of between 6-12 who show up on Friday nights between 6:30-7 PM.  Eternal also does tournaments with larger prizes once or twice a month on Saturdays around noon or 1PM if Friday is dedicated exclusively to date night.

 

Gamer's Gauntlet I've heard has a decent group too, and there is some co-mingling of players between the two stores.

 

RIW also has a Thursday group, and there are some super knowledgeable players over there if the south side is closer to where you are.  The first post in this thread has a good summary of where in the greater Detroit area you can find games.
