T-Minus 3 Months!

We are about 3 months away from Bilbo’s Birthday Bash.  We made some significant updates to the News, Scoring, and Painting Competition Sections of the website.  Check out all the changes we made.  Most of these are in response to trying to manage a slightly different event format this year due to budget and space restrictions.  We hope you like the changes we have planned.

Later this week, we are planning to post an update on the tournament FAQ.

We have 10 spots left in the tournament… so if you’ve been on the fence, don’t miss out!

Over the course of these two days, players will bring both good and evil armies (that’s right, a return to Good vs Evil matchups!) and will battle with 6 different opponents (that’s right, 6 Games in 2012!)

Pre-Registration for Bilbo’s Birthday Bash is now open.  The per-registration cost is $50.  The Registration fee will go up to $60 after September 14, 2012.  Check out the Registration Page for more details.

In addition to 6 great games, we will also be catering lunch on both days.  Please send me an email (via the contact page) if you have any special dietary restrictions.

I’m also pleased to announce that Chris Thomas will be helping with Bilbo’s Birthday Bash this year.
