Gencon 2018 Sunday Format.
« on: January 30, 2018, 11:31:22 PM »
Hello everyone! Its getting close to that time of the year again. I was asked by Mitch to help out this year and will be running the Sunday format. Now from what I heard most people tend to leave Saturday night so I was wondering if there was any format I could do on Sunday that would convince some of you to stay and play that day? I was thinking of running a classic old school tag team tournament but I am open to hearing you guys out. What format would you like to attend on a Sunday morning Gencon 2018?

It's not a matter of not wanting to for most people. Their travel schedule is what cuts their time short.

Completely Understandable, do you usually stay through Sunday or do you leave that Saturday? I would just hate to host a tournament if only 2 people show up. I might as well just call it free play. I was thinking maybe too to use that day to try and get new players involved. I plan on having a few professionally printed demo decks at the ready. :)

Most of us on TCO who show up for more than 1 day are usuaslly there all 4 days.

The issue with many people tends to be two-fold when it comes to a Sunday format:
1.  Many people are just burnt out when it comes to Raw Deal after playing for 3 days.
2.  Everything else at Gen Con; people do want to go out and see what else is happening.


If you wanted to try and run something on Sunday, I'd recommend it something more fun than competative.

Could do a big rumble. I can provide special prizing to the winner. Like a full playset of v8 printed on real cardstock.

sunday is also a weird day for flights. if you were trying to leave sunday most flights out heading west tend to be done by 3-4pm. makes it hard to stay that day if you need to be back at work on monday.

From what I heard anyone at Gencon could challenge you anywhere and you guys had to sit there and play. So if you are sitting in a bathroom and someone challenged you you had to play lol.

ANYway.... ;)

The Hardcore format was amusing back in the day, yes, but back to the question at hand - I went to GenCon for 4 years and really didn't do much on Sunday.  While I won't be there, so my input is of limited value, I'd think it would be a good 'whatever anyone who is still around wants to do' kinda thing.

That was the Hardcore 24/7 format, any place and any time :)

Suppose I could just name it "Random Format Sunday" and then can decide that day what to play.

EDIT: Or "Random Game" Sunday, any game whatever people wanna do.

Maybe do a "TCO Roulette Wheel" and pick like 9 random stipulations (could get creative and make a few up) and "spin" the wheel (random choice) for games to have said permanent stipulation applied.

Could do a cube draft if that sounds fun and would only need 4 people to a max of 8.

It would probably be best of we knew who all was coming. I know it's early, having a rough idea of how many people would help with the decision in my opinion.

War Games would be fun or a rumble would be cool if enough people should up for either...but I think open game type of thing may be your best bet either way, I should be at GenCon this year.
