Savage Worlds at Conventions

Tacticon 2017 is in DENVER

Postby SavageBull » Mon Aug 14, 2017 3:42 pm

Tacticon is back in Denver! Game Masters, submit your events NOW

Submit games here: https://tabletop.events/conventions/roc ... mit-events

Tacticon 29 / Rocky Mountain Con 5
Dates: Thursday, Sep 28 - Sunday, Oct 1 2017
Location: Crowne Plaza Denver Airport Convention Center
15500 E 40th Ave, Denver, CO 80239, USA

Badge refunded for running 12 hours of games. GMs who have run 12 hours at either Con in the last year will get their badge after they submit 12 hours for Tacticon. "New" GMs will get refunded at Tacticon when they've run their games.

Can the Rocky Mountain Savages run over 100 games at Tacticon 2017? We've done a #Savage100 for GenghisCon, but never at Tacticon, and since this is going to be the biggest Tacticon ever, we're going to run more games than ever. And to do that we need YOU, so come run some Savage Worlds (or other events) at the 29th year of Tacticon.

Note: Savage Satuday Night games should begin at 7:30. We're going to list the Savage Saturday Night get-together and give-away as its own event now which will help us get people to the right place for the meetup and then to the right tables afterward.

Friday Night Bar Fight will be back with a vengeance, and we're also going to extend the drinking-while-gaming to [ Thursday Night You Meet in a Tavern ] (for Fantasy Gamers), and for those who aren't participating in Savage Saturday Night, [ Saturday Night One-SHOTS! ] (for the Indy RPGs).

If you'd like your game scheduled in the bar area, be sure to include Friday Night Bar Fight/Thursday Night You Meet in a Tavern/Saturday Night One-SHOTS! in the description.

Also, be sure to let your friends on social media know what you're running and use #Savage100 to tag your posts.

Does anyone know how to edit the time/day of an event after it's been submitted? When I click to edit an event, it only gives me the option to change the description and I need to tweak a few things.

Savages!

We're currently sitting at fewer SW games for Tacticon than we ran last year in Colorado Springs. What's the deal?

Pathfinder and DnD are both looking to run more games than we are, as well as independent RPGs. This hasn't happened in years.

I'm concerned.

If you haven't yet submitted games, Do so here by Sunday:

https://tabletop.events/conventions/roc ... mit-events

See you all in 3 weeks!

I offer 1000 apologies for my tardiness. In my own defense, I was not sure I was even going to be able to attend due to a work issue. But I decided to quit my job so I have more time for gaming :shock: (not really).

My three games are in, pending approval.

We also need players! Only 11 of the 49 games are 50% filled or more.
The table below indicates that the issue is not restricted to SW. In fact we have the best percentage of any of the categories.
The export lags behind the website a little bit (why it says 45 instead of 49 SW games), but I know when it was updated since it has one of the two games I submitted.

(Pivot Tables FTW!)

Row Labels Count of Event Type Sum of Max Tickets Sum of Sold Count Sum of Left Average of Remaining
Board Game 41 263 25 238 88%
Card Game 13 130 0 130 100%
