Good Monday everyone!
So yesterday I announced my plans on holding a two day 'free-gaming' day where attendees would not have a strict time limit to play games over and instead be able to play whatever they wanted whenever they wanted.
Since then it was brought to my attention that while its a nice idea in principle, the very nature of people alone would mean that without direction nothing actually happens and people either drop out for fear of not being able to play the games they want to or instead rather than turning up and getting stuck in, instead mill around and spend all day doing nothing.
I don't know how true this is, but I'm thinking it's probably right.
One thing I don't want to do is declare this a Malifaux v2 event, as I know a good few people who would rather play V1, and something tells me, if I said it was a v1 event (with potentially modified rules here and there) then the turnout probably wouldn't even cover the hall rental (I'm still waiting to see how that is, and of course everything hinges on how realistic that rental is).
So this leaves me in a pickle, it's not major as I have roughly a year (maybe more, maybe less) to organise this, but I would like to hear from you beloved reader!
What would you want? A Free Associated Gaming Event?
A Malifaux v1.5 Weekend?
A Malifaux v2 Weekend?
Maybe 1 game for the first day with Free-Gaming on the second?
Remember, this is not supposed to be a tournament, this is supposed to be an opportunity for some people to get together, play some games and have fun with a few prizes thrown in for a bit of a 'fun' edge.
Let me know!
*Note: By Free Gaming I mean "Play what you want, when you want", there will always be an attendance fee :)
