Interesting, they're separating "US Nationals" and "North American Champ." Or has that always been the case and I'm just an ignorant casual? Either way, hoping I can make most of these events! I've never been to Adepticon or Gencon, so an excuse to attend either or both is very welcome!

Mad props to Marc Cramer (krey) for hosting and organizing SWLCG events at Origins. That had to have played a YUUUUUUUGE role in FFG deciding to run events at Origins.

I searched the adepticon event listings and there was nothing for Star Wars. It was all X wing, armada and imperial assault events. Adepticon is a 40k miniatures event so I was expecting a conquest event like last year and I didn't find a conquest event. I would be shocked if we saw a Star Wars Lcg event but if they have one I will be there.

Last year FFG had X-Wing, Conquest, and Imperial assault events at Adepticon. They also demo'd Armada, X-wing, and Conquest.

 

I was originally going to try to set up a SW LCG tournament there unofficially but I can't make it any more.

 

It's a pretty small convention board and card game wise but the IA crowd was really fun last year.

The prayers of many have finally been answered. Grats to the ohio crew. Maybe Timothy Zahn will be there again.

He will almost certainly be there. I talked with him at Origins for the past few years and he autographed cards and our playmats.

I hope either SW or Thrones is on a Saturday.  I could come out for one day likely.

If I can make it out, I do hope Zahn and Stackpole are there (Stackpole is certainly likely).  Want to get Thrawn, Karrde, and Mirax autographed from them.

I haven't made it out in a few years but last time I was there was right after the Scoundrel's book came out. I got him to sign that and a few cards as I was just putzing with the core set then. He's a pleasure to talk to and an amazing all around guy.

I will go to this. And I'll bring my playmat from last year's Origins event, just to show that I am OO. Original Origins.

America still has his deck box with the founding members autographs. Does this make Krey the godfather of Origins?

I'm just glad someone else signed on the side I did finally. Every time I played him, a box with just my signature was facing me. Kept thinking it was mine.

I heard that anyone who brings their cards to this event in a Boushh box gets a first round bye. Can someone confirm?

Man, Boushh boxes are OP.  They need to be added to the restricted list, and probably errata'd too!

Don't worry Tarkin pretty much negates them anyhow.

Get excited.  With FFG doing some of the leg work at Origins that frees resources up for other interesting things to help make the weekend a blast.

I'm think I'm going to try to make it this year.

 

Didn't America mention in a previous year's Origins thread something about bringing a cooler?
