There's talk about a reschedule. I'd check again on Friday to make sure it's going down.

They had a huge turnout for their "Assault on Imdaar Alpha" event, 16+ people and they were expecting to have at least 20.  I decided to not participate, the players that showed all gave me the impression of being super competitive and I just wanted to have fun.

Game Haven Mind Games had a turn out of 6 players.

 

I tied for first but placed 3rd as my strength of schedule was shot due to my first game against someone who didn't win any games. 

 

Took home the fancy Z-95 (my first choice)!

Perhaps you mean Mind Games? Game Haven had 16.


Rebel: More than most, less than some.

Empire: Ditto

I am in the area.  I would love to join the groups.  Send me a line and I will be there.

 

So far, I noticed Dragon's Keep in Orem trying to play every Wednesday.  I will check it out.

Also every Saturday at the Orem Boardgame Revolution at 4pm. From what I hear there's a tournament on the 14th.

For those of you who don't know there is a facebook group the 181st Imperial Fighter Group. https://www.facebook...53951051337670/

 

Also a few of us are putting together a 'Utah's Aces - Catch of the Day' tournament.

 

The Boardgame Revolutions in SLC will be hosting it. We're trying to get enough people to make it doable. 

 

Here is the post;

 

 

 

Hey everyone we are going to be putting together a tournament on a saturday in July and going to be having the HUGE ships as prizes, 1st place will get a Tantive IV, 2nd place will get a Rebel Transport, 3rd will be a custom painted Slave 1 ship. Please vote for the day that would work best for you to come. we are planning to have it at BGR in SLC.
cost would only have to cover the ships, so 14 people at $10 each and the more people show up the cheaper the entry fee!

Sorry was off at the doctors. Will not play in the Tourney as I've only a 1/2 dozen games under my belt. But I think I'll try and make it next month.

 

Oooh, I'm in West Point! You still looking for someone to play?

In Utah County, Dragon's Keep /was/ doing Star Wars on Wednesday nights (LCG and X-Wing), but that died down when Andrew left (he really pushed the boardgame scene for DK). Boardgame Revolution does an organized event every Saturday night, 4pm to whenever. There's usually prize support, depending on how many people show up. $5 buy-in is the typical, and it's a friendly lot (at least, I /hope/ we're a friendly lot). BGR is looking to see what interest there is in a long-term tournament (one or two games a week for a couple months). I'm not sure what Blakfyre games has in the way of organized events.

 

In SLC, I've gone to Game Haven for their tournaments. They tend to have a good turn out. The Imdaar at Game Night Games was pretty good too, though I'm not sure what other events they host. Boardgame Revolution has a new store in SLC that does a weekly X-Wing night that a lot of regulars go to. And Hastur Games has a lot of table space, though I don't know if they do anything organized.

Oh wow I didn't know Andrew left DK. Makes sense, as I haven't really heard much from that store in a long while.

 

I swear the largest X-Wing get together they had happened on my first time at that store for the Store Championship. Large enough to post photos from the event on their FB page, and nothing since.

 

Dude, we need to play another 2v2 game -- this time an epic game with the CR90 and transport. Just, you know, as long as it doesn't go until 1:30am again while my little boy is there.

 

Kids, pfft, who needs sleep?   :blink:

I live in Kaysville and they used to have a night at the comic book store here but they stopped. Would love to find a place to play. I just have a core set and a moldy crow.
