Oh man, GenCon is over. Worlds isn’t until November. How am I going to fill this lull?

Answer: Come to New York.

On October 12th, the NYC Meta will be hosting the first annual “Thronestoberfest” tournament. Whether you want another crack at a regional-caliber tournament, need to prep for Worlds, or just plain want to have fun, this is the event for you. Our June 29th regional drew 24 participants from along the eastern seaboard, and we hope to match or exceed that in October. More details will follow in the coming weeks, but for out-of-town folks who may want to travel in, here is the basic info:

Date: October 12th, 2013
Time: 10:00 a.m. registration, play to start at 10:30 SHARP
Place: The Compleat Strategist, 11 East 33rd Street, New York NY
Cost: $10 entry fee
Prizes: The top two will receive champ and 2nd place trophies, and the champion will also get a unique 1-of-a-kind custom playmat. 3 and 4 will so get something special, and let's not forget our Sansa! On top of that, we'll be raffling off all kinds of goodies (including an alt art Dany #Danigral). You don't have to buy raffle tickets - everyone will get a ticket or two just for showing up, and we may give more out as the day progresses.

Please RSVP or send questions to directly to me: dstromes(at)gmail.com

Just joust on Saturday. We typically do casual melee the night before. Because this is, for some people at least, a 3-day weekend in the US (Monday 10/14 is Columbus Day), we can do an actual melee tournament on Sunday if there is interest. But, at the very least, there will be casual melee at some point during the weekend.

Imagine how awesome this could be... then multiply that by the number of people named Walder Frey. That is how neat Thronestoberfest will be.

See you there!

Hooray! I love Thrones! I love NYC! I love Thronestoberfest!

 

I assume that I (and my +1) will be there in time for some kind of get together Friday night, so I hope there's some interest there. Unfortunately we'll have to head out early Sunday morning. I don't want to discourage a Sunday secondary tournament, but if there is one hopefully it is not exclusive to some casual gaming or "friendly" melee Friday night.

We'll do our now-typical Friday night affair regardless of what ends up happening Sunday.

I'd appreciate an email in advance to the address in the OP, just so I can plan/ keep track. Need to make sure to have enough tables, prizes, etc.

How much time before the event would you need/want a reply?  Its myself and 2 or 3 friends who just got into this game recently so I'm trying to convience them to come out for this to event but of course there is a bit of scheduling involved with my friends.

As much as you can give, but we'd never turn anyone away. I'd say a month out, let me know what you're thinking, even if still unsure.

Where are you guys from?

Count me in. Not expecting to accomplish much competitively, but it should be fun to see friends old and new.

I'm guessing a little, but we're currently around 12-15 I think. Entry will be no more than $10. I'll post more about prizes once I finalize them, but there will be some customized unique gear, as always.

Awesome! Yeah Philippe emailed me with some logistical questions. I hope it works out, would be great to have Canada represented!
