In other news, just found out foleyfrog is the same person as Sean Sullivan so I've removed one of them from the 40K tournament, which means we will still space for 1 player in the special 40K tournament being run by Chris.

With the spot open I would like to participate in the 40K event. But quick question that are not addressed, Do models have to be painted and is there any restrictions to vehicles and multi-wound models that are not currently listed?

Also sign me up for X-wing! I may have 2 other friends who plan on joining in as well.

I've added you to the 40K tournament.
Models don't have to be painted.
I don't know the answer to your other question. I'll see the tournament organizer around 9am so I'll ask him to post a reply.
I signed you up for X-Wing. There are multiple spots left for your friends. I didn't sign them up since I don't know their names.

I've had a change of plans. I won't be able to participate in the two sessions I signed up for(Star Wars & super dungeon explore). I will still be coming later in the afternoon but I will have my daughter with me now, so that changes what I can play. Sorry for any trouble this may cause in the schedule.
Scissors cuts paper, paper covers rock, rock crushes lizard, lizard poisons Spock, Spock smashes scissors, scissors decapitates lizard, lizard eats paper, paper disproves Spock, Spock vaporizes rock, and as it always has, rock crushes scissors.

I just wanted to thank the organizers, and everyone who helped set up this event.  It was neat to see so many people come out and play a whole bunch of different games.  I wish I could have stayed longer than I did.

Also, I'd like to thank Brandon and Matt for teaching me Castles of Burgundy and Amerigo respectively.

I hope to come out for the next Expo in the spring/summer!
