In, I think the Origins Championship will have more players than some of the regionals. Over/under anyone?

I am trying to get an exact date for the prereg cutoff.



According to the mail-in pre registration form (who would use that?) the deadline to get the discounted badge is May 15.

3.5 hour hike for me, so I am quite doubtful. I may be persuaded by a sufficiently obnoxious Jar Jar playmat to vie for...

Yeah I saw that, and somewhere else I saw things must be postmarked by May1. So I wanted to double check before I advised here.

Yep, the online registration form says the deadline for the paper pre registration is April 30. I haven't seen any deadline for the online pre registration, so who knows when it actually is. Deadline or no, I'll be there Saturday and Sunday. I hear Booker is hosting the after party at a local brazillian steakhouse!

Do you need any assistance with the administration, planning, or prize support for these events?

I'll take all the help I can get. I feel like this thing is by the players for the players.

I'm waiting to hear back from FFG and then Ill be in full planning mode. I'll get in touch with you and we will see what we can do.

I started building my con schedule.

What's the chance that the 1v1 tourney on Saturday will go past 7pm (8 hours)? There's a 7pm event that I wanted to go to if it doesn't conflict, but it requires pre-registration and coordinating with friends if it would work out.

Do you have any ideas on how many rounds to do, depending on player count?

Hard to say exactly how long it will run without knowing numbers. I would guess 4-5 rounds and then the cut, with maybe a half hour break somewhere so people could grab a quick bite. In any case I really want to be done early enough that people can enjoy their evening. Id like to hit up a local joint for a beer afterwards with anyone willing.

Right now there is no reason we would have to follow FFG tournament guidelines, but we need enough swiss that we get a good cut, and so that people get to play games. I remember an event I went to that was 3 rounds, no cut and I got the round 1 bye. Not worth the 3 hour drive.

Origins will be worth the drive!
