Raw Deal Events Are Live for Gen Con
« on: May 07, 2016, 07:06:00 AM »
Link is HERE along with a couple of other not as cool WWE games.

For those link-averse, here's the submitted 2016 Raw Deal schedule at Gen Con

Thursday

10 AM - Virtual Classic Tourney
1 PM - Intro to Raw Deal
2 PM - Virtual AA Tourney
5 PM  - Intro to Raw Deal
6 PM - NXT Format

Friday

10 AM - Virtual AA Tourney
1 PM - Intro to Raw Deal
2 PM - Virtual Classic Tourney
5 PM  - Intro to Raw Deal
6 PM - Virtual Rev Tourney

Saturday

10 AM - World Championships
5 PM - Intro to Raw Deal

Sunday

10 AM - War Games


I messed with the numbers this year and got it down so that all of our events are $2 except the World Championships which is a measly $4.  And if you have ever been to Gen Con, you know that you'll probably get some prizes that far exceed that price point, especially for the World Championships

So help us out by PRE-PURCHASING actual tickets for events you will participate in (heck even those that you won't participate in, it's just $2).  We'd greatly appreciate it so we can prove to Gen Con that we deserve space.  That helps the Raw Deal Players Committee in coming back to Gen Con. 

Also, this comes up every year, yes, there is a soft cap on the event that we have to put up for Gen Con purposes. BUT WE WILL NEVER TURN YOU AWAY for a Raw Deal event.  EVER.

Big thank yous as always to our sponsor, Mr Tony Vela, AKA Mr. Velacards on TCO as always for giving us prize support and making sure these World Championships are always worth fighting for.

Remember WWW.VELACARDS.COM for all your Raw Deal AND Supershow needs!

And finally to our 3 Assistant Judges that will help in running tournaments this year.  My second in command, 2014 World Champion Mitch! returns for his second return of duty. And this year 2 callups that I have high hopes for again at Worlds,  CRASHER and Rated SRH. Many thanks to you fine gentlemen.  As well as to our Design Team, our playtesters, and you guys who all help keep this game afloat buy simply playing and helping us continue Raw Deal. And while I'm at it, my wife and kids, who are the real magic in my life, and have always supported me in everything that I do, no matter how nerdy or awesome.

All right, enough with the sentimentality. Here's hoping to see you guys at Gen Con.

Also if all judges would review the event times and PM me the events you are going to be playing in to see which can be ran without Drew or myself, I would like to get my schedule set for the con so I can buy tickets next week to other events and can then assign Judges to events.

So I saw on Gen Con's event list, and I wanted to ask now...

http://www.teamcanadaonline.net/index.php/topic,16362.msg190264.html#msg190264

Is this the Sunday War Games format that's listed?

That's the basics of it yes, we've been discussing other details of it too to nail it down fully, but that's the general concept :)

OK ... I'm looking to see what players would like to see for Backstage Autograph Session cards for this year's Gen Con event(s). I will have access to a pretty decent lot of names to get signatures from, but I know I can't get everyone. I'm only looking at names that have either been printed by CI or have been made available via Virtual. I am not interested in names that have never been with any organization that hasn't been done in RAW Deal or at least has a card with their name on it in RAW Deal.

So, I present to you the names I will have available to get some BAS cards signed to hand out as prizes:

CANDICE MICHELLE (has signed before)
THE BARBARIAN
THE WARLORD
DEMOLITION AX (has signed before)
DEMOLITION SMASH (has signed before)
BOOKER T
STEVIE RAY
SCOTT STEINER
KING KONG BUNDY
DUTCH MANTELL (AKA "ZEB COLTER")
TERRY FUNK

- AL SNOW
- JILLIAN HALL 
- MIKE ROTUNDA (IRS)
- "THE POPE" ELIJAH BURKE
- MUHAMMAD HASSAN (this one is totally happening as a dual with Daivari)
- SHAWN DAIVARI
- JAMIE NOBLE
- JON HEIDENREICH
- RENE DUPREE
- JIMMY HART
- RHYNO
- RAVEN
- SABU (has signed before)
- HORNSWOGGLE
- DAMIAN SANDOW
- BRET "THE HITMAN" HART (has signed before)

And then I have 3 big names, who have never signed BAS cards before and I will most certainly be going after, but I will leave those off the list and hopefully keep them as a surprise for later.

Plus, who knows who else I will run into between now and Gen Con.

I would mark SO HARD for a signature card with KKB, IRS, or Dutch's signatures. Are Booker and Stevie Ray going to do any doubles, or will they stand exclusively alone?

They will be done as dual signed cards, but I could also try and get Booker to sign a couple solo as well.

You should start at the Gen Con site (http://www.gencon.com/), make an account, and get yourself all signed up that way.  That's a lot better than trying to do anything at the last minute for the event.
The issue with trying to get tickets isn't the tickets itself; if you're not local to Indianapolis, good luck getting a hotel anywhere inside the outer-belt.


Just be aware that, if you do go, there's a LOT more to do then just Raw Deal (like some random game called Supershow [yes, I had to shill for it]).

Ok I will be playing in the World Championship and War Games, but sadly I do not have the funds on a credit card to order the tickets for the specific events so I will be using Generic Tickets I believe I hope this isn't a huge problem.

I would say I'm upgrading my chances of making Saturday (at least, maybe sunday too) to 10%...so when's the last day to buy a ticket?? Just so I know for sure when I need to have it by (assuming that date hasn't passed)

You can always buy a generic ticket at con.  We simply ask that if possible, you support us by buying the real ticket for the event.  It's the same price and it helps our numbers by showing Gen Con we deserve event space and time for future events.

Anyone that wants to play in the World Championships on Saturday of the event, LMK via pm and I'll PayPal you the $4 it costs to buy into the event. But you gotta play!

The numbers are important and I will help in any way I can.  ;)
