Custom Expo Hats

Ric Van Dyke will be placing a special order this week for anyone that would like a commemorative Expo hat. The cost will be $30 and Ric will order them in size LARGE which should work fine for everyone. To place your order, please contact Ric directly Orders must be received by Saturday, April 14.



Nearly 150 Attendees Already!

We are ahead of schedule based on our current Attendee count from previous years. With nearly three months still to go, we should easily eclipse the 200+ Attendee mark and our past attendance figures. We now have 28 first-time attendees registered as well, which we are very excited about!

This weekend we will be adding Special Events so you can learn more about the initial seminars and tournaments that we have planned. In other news, we found out another gaming venue (sci-fi/fantasy) is taking place at the hotel the weekend prior to our event, so we will most likely not be able to set-up until Monday morning per our official schedule. We were hoping to grab an early start this year, but it looks like another gaming group has the hotel.


Lucky "21"

We are on track to break records at CSW Expo 2012. Our registrations are nearly 120 already, and the best news of all is we already have 21 (!!!) first-time attendees joining us. We are excited to welcome so many newcomers to our 12th Anniversary Event, and we hope to welcome many more!


Flying Start: More than 100 Registered!

"There must be something in the water." We're off to our fastest start in sign-up activity ever, far outpacing sign-ups from last year. We've just updated our Game Sign-ups and Attendee Page. One of the key indicators — in the first month of registration, we have 17 first-time attendees already registered to attend, which is nearly 20% of all who have registered thus far! This is very exciting news and we can expect an incredible turnout this year as we come together to celebrate the hobby.


Special Guest: Marco Arnaudo

We are pleased to announce that Marco Arnaudo will be one of our Special Guests at CSW Expo 2012.

As many of you may already be aware, Marco has set the hobby on fire with his outstanding and always-entertaining game review videos. Marco has made an important contribution to help support and evangelize our hobby, so we look forward to celebrating him and his many outstanding contributions amongst our gaming community at the Expo.

Marco Arnaudo was born in Italy in 1976. He graduated (BA) from the University of Pisa in 2000, and earned his PhD from both the Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa (2004) and Harvard University (2006). He is currently Associate Professor of Italian and Director of Graduate Studies in Italian at the Dept. of French and Italian of Indiana University, Bloomington, IN.

Helping Spread the Word

CSW Expo 2012 Email Announcement

Per the image and link below, we've just started our Expo 2012 Email Marketing Campaign to inform our past attendees that online registration has now started. Word-of-mouth is key, so we encourage you to share this announcement with others (there is both a "Share" (above the announcement) and "Send to Friend" forwarding link (below of the announcement) you can take advantage of). Here also is the direct URL you can send to your gaming colleagues so they can learn more about this event:

Of course, this Expo site address is another easy way to spread the word, and it's easier to remember!

Thanks in advance for helping us spread the word!
