Our community of Warmachine players has been regularly growing, especially lately in our much larger new space. The new store can host us to 40 players, and our tournaments lately have been pulling in players from Buffalo, Guelph, Saint Catherine’s, and Toronto. We’ve loved meeting all the amazing folks who’ve been coming out, but now it’s time for us to give something back. October will mark our third annual Warmachine vs. Cystic Fibrosis tournament. We want to show everyone that gamers are as generous and kindhearted as they are vicious on the battlefield. And of course, we Warmachine players want to show the gamers out there that we do it best of all!
Our Cystic Fibrosis Fundraiser follows the structure of Foodmachine—we host a four round tournament and players may spend tickets to “cheat” in the game, rerolling dice and changing the rules. Tickets represent dollars donated, and CF Hamilton is on site to provide folks with tax receipts and collect 100% of what is donated throughout the day. Every penny of the entry fee and these tickets goes toward the cause. Tickets may also be put in raffles to win door prizes (and we’re going to have some absolutely fantastic door prizes).
When: Sat, October 5th, 10:30am – 7:00pm. We will be going four rounds and using Deathclock timing and Steamroller 2013 scenarios. Tickets purchased on-site may be used for raffled door prizes, or to purchase in-game cheats.
Game Size: Games will be played with 35 point may include a second list. If you bring a second list it might need to abide by Character Restrictions (but it might not!)
Entry Fee: $10 per person, which will be given back to you in the form of 10 Tickets. This tickets are used in each game for cheats, rerolls, and raffles. You are also encouraged to buy and use more tickets. Every dollar goes toward a great cause!
Prizes: As 100% of the donations are going right to our cause, all our prizes this year are donated. We’ll be announcing many of them along the way, but this much we’ll spoil right off the bat: 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place will get Steamroller coins (donated by Privateer Press).
Raffles: We’re offering folks the chance to contribute to more than just cheating, but also winning! Raffle prizes this year are all donated, and we’ll be announcing a few over the next few days.
What if I can’t attend, or am not local, but I still want to contribute charitably? here and Black Knight Games will cover having it contributed on the day. Word to the wise: while donating this way is an excellent idea if you cant make the event, it DOES NOT entitle you to tickets for raffles or cheats in game. If you’re coming out, in person donation is still the best idea.
UPDATE: International donors may still contribute to raffles using this button. Lost Hemisphere Radio is covering the cost of having the products shipped to you. Once we’ve announced all the raffles available we’ll email donors who are not attending in person asking how they’d like these raffle tickets spent.
