Can you add Saturday, 4pm, Jester's Court, Grand Junction? We have a small group over on this side of the mountains.

 

Done! Added the calendar link too for the listing.  Are there any more stores out there that I should check into/that you know of? I'd love to add them to the list.

Gives me more good reasons to come out there and mountain bike in the spring/summer! :)

Hey all, I added details about a tournament Bonnie Brae Hobbies is hosting on May 3rd, 2015 in celebration of "May the 4th Be With You."  They posted the details on Facebook, but here it is completely copied over. Check the original posting to see some details and a link to the museum page to read up on how it came to be at the particular museum that the tournament will be at.

Long overdue update needed.  Some info as I have it has been added.  Particularly details on the 2015 Store Wars!  Also events have been listed for the Wizard's Chest for the next couple of weeks.  Going to try to start scheduling things so players can prepare a little more easily!

Thanks all!

Thanks for the updates Jon! I super appreciate it. Took the summer off, and thinking about getting back in the cockpit. Might try to get down to the Chest for some casual next week. As far as the store wars go, are there qualifiers/restrictions? Or just show up with five bucks at the brewery?

I should have actually added some of the info I already knew about "Store Wars" but I was waiting on the organizer to release more info, which just so happened to come today after your post!

Players are being recruited mainly from the stores they participate and play at the most.  They will be 4 man teams, and stores are individually figuring out how to put pilots on their roster.  There is a Mercenary team, for those pilots who want to play but don't have the time to make it to stores often enough to call it "home."  

Here is what was posted in Facebook today about tentative formats being played:

 

"Tenative format for the day: 2 rounds of 59 point cross faction as popular by AQ, 2 rounds of 100 point standard as popular everywhere, and up in the air is the last part I'd like to talk to the captains about as we have a few ideas! Yes, this will be multiple lists, but no more than 3. And pilots will be unique across all players for your store, so while Soontir may show up in multiple formats, he may only show up once each round for your store's members."

We have a solid group playing at Wizard's, so you should come on down Chris!

Thanks for the info! I had looked on their site a while ago and was unable to track anything down, so this is super helpful.  

Also, added!

Pasted from another thread from yesterday...
 

The store in Pueblo is Chaos, Games and More  and they are having an "entry level" tournament on Saturday, November 28th. 

We have "Star Wars Saturdays" for X-Wing, Armada, Imperial Assault, and the Star Wars LCG.  It really isn't that far of a drive from Springs and if you have never been down you are missing out.

 

edit: The Organized Play Winter Kits should be arriving in early January and we are planning a Store Championship for X-Wing in the first quarter of next year.

Oi jjon! Are you fine starfighters still meeting at the Wizard's Chest on Wednesday nights? I think I've finally got some time :D

Yes indeed we are still playing Wednesday nights from about 6-10.

We are however in the new location for the Wizard's Chest @ 451 Broadway. The new location has a load of space, players can now come and play whenever they want generally (so long as there are not big events i.e. Magic prerelease or something)!!

I have been away from home for the past month but I want to update this post with store champ listings and such, hopefully I find the time this week to do so! School started today so life has been hectic haha.

You should totally come down and join us!

Gamers Haven in Colorado Springs is every Wednesday at 6pm. It used to be on the list, but not sure why it's not anymore. I'll be there tonight!

 

Do you know date/time for the Store Champs @ Gamer's Haven (assuming you ordered a kit)?
