We are pleased to announce we have posted the Game Sign-ups for CSW Expo 2016. Check out the many great titles our attendees are looking to play, and now's your chance to network and coordinate on games you wish to play during our grand event!
THE PREMIER GAMING EVENT OF THE YEAR
We have completed the Attendee Roster as of today. We're almost already at the halfway mark to last years' numbers, yet we know a lot of folks have yet to submit their registration forms! We have 18 First-time attendees signed up as well which is fantastic news.
We will be debuting our Game Sign-ups page later this week!
Fans of The Gamers and MMP -- rejoice!
We are pleased to announce that our ConsimWorld Expo 2016 Guest of Honor will be Dean Essig, Founder of The Gamers: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Gamers
We are doubly pleased Dean's better half, Sara Essig, will be joining us as well. Special thanks to Chip Pharr for assisting us to help make this happen!
It's always a thrill for me to be able to roll out the Red Carpet for those who are tremendous contributors to this modest hobby of ours. Hundreds and hundreds of hours of gaming pleasure around the globe have been a direct result of Dean and Companies many great games published over the past 20+ years.
And I'm very much looking forward to seeing Dean and Sara again...it's been many years!
We couldn't be more pleased with the initial sign-up activity, with more than 150 participants already registered for CSW Expo 2015 -- smashing all previous records. Just a quick tip for those who may be unfamiliar with our Game Sign-ups page. Please take note of the three tabs at the bottom of the page, where you can navigate between Monster and Open-gaming titles, along with our featured gaming events (most sponsored by publishers/designers, such as hosted playtest sessions, drop-in gaming activities, tournament play, etc.).
Thanks to your support, we have shattered our previous high record for number of registrations received in the month of January. Our previous high was 90, and we have officially recorded our 100th attendee registration with Richard H. Berg committing to join us alongside our special guest of honor, Mark Herman. And we still have several days of sign-ups left to take advantage of the FREE Expo shirt offer before it expires after January 31!
Look for a special gaming event that will involve both Mark Herman and Richard H. Berg and a challenge involving the Great Battles of History to take place! We have some definite fun in store in celebration of our 15th Anniversary Event! More details coming soon!
I'm pleased to announce we have completed our first major update of the expo site to list all Attendees registered to date, including Game Sign-ups. Please visit our Attendee and Game Sign-ups page for more information.
We will also shortly be sending out an email blast to remind everyone that our special FREE expo shirt offer expires end of this month for those who have not yet submitted their registration form. We already have 75 registrations, and at our current clip, we will be exceeding our past high sign-up mark from all previous years. This is also shaping up to be our biggest gaming event ever in terms of featured gaming sessions (playtests, tournaments, designer-hosted sessions).
Alan Emrich just chimed in with a quick update on the BIG ETO playtest session scheduled for CSW Expo 2015. You can read the original news posting here.
This is shaping up to be quite incredible. The past several weeks have been very intense moving this ball forward and preparing for the big CSW Expo playtest. You will never have a shorter line-of-communication to the team bringing you a fascinating new wargame than you will have here, with the designer, developer, and publisher all standing with you before the game itself in motion! :D
You'll have fun for sure hanging out with a great old corps-level "panzer pusher" (ETO is an evolved, state-of-the-art evolution of the intrepid Battle for Moscow game system), all grown up with systems for HQs, air, naval, economics, and lots of great maps to campaign over (the total map size is about the same as War in Europe). We'll be taking sign-ups later on and more formally organizing the participants, but "drive by" generals wanting to try their hand are also welcome!
