Neptune Gamer's Challenge

View Larger Map

To be held on Nov 7th & 8th

Quoth yhprum01:
Great event held twice a year. Personally been going for 10+ years. The price is more than a CoC event but well worth it. I've almost never come away with no door prize or a door prize valued at less than I paid to get in. In fact, I have boxes of stuff laying around the house that I won that I haven't even gotten to yet. The prize support is larger than most RTTs and the prizes for Best Gen, Best Overall, etc are unique and fun (real sword, real gauntlets, etc.).

The tourney (40k or Fantasy) is always on the Saturday and not the Friday night but if you want a pick up game or enjoy watching people play games, go on Friday as well. They do door prize drawings on Friday so if you want to maximize your chances of winning, go both days. If I'm not mistaken, I think Holmes said there was a APOC battle this time on Friday? Correct me if I'm wrong.

The players tend to be more fluff oriented than win oriented. Younger crowd (sponsored by a middle school club, after all), more unpainted minis, lots more space between tables than any other tourney, but a fun experience none the less. I continue to go to this because I have a blast and I know that the opponent won't be going for my throat if they lose. Plus, Holmes' scenarios are a bit different than the normal RTT scenarios so it keeps it interesting.

Pizza is typically delivered on Saturday at $1/slice and they have sodas for purchase. Or you can drive down to the road to Taco Hell, BK, etc.

You'll like it if you go.
