Glad you spoke up, it would seem like begging if I did. :D
Begging is acceptable!

Seriously, if you, [MENTION=16198]Reidzilla[/MENTION], or [MENTION=6789923]MrF[/MENTION] frequent communities where fans of your games converge, let them know about your events! I did a quick post over at RPG.net, but I'm sure there are other venues in which the words can be spread. (I would't want to come off as a spammer by joining them just to pimp Gameday, though.)

Okay folks, two weeks to go! Still plenty of seats for some events, so let's all keep getting the word out when and where we can. Any efforts are appreciated!

Gameday 42 is THIS WEEKEND, folks. Woo!
[MENTION=6789923]MrF[/MENTION] I'm afraid it's time for us to consider pulling your events. Ultimately, it's up to you, but if we're not going to need a table for your games, I prefer to tell Games Plus now rather than the day of, so they can plan accordingly. You're more than welcome to jump into one of the other events if any of them interest you.

This also goes for any other GMs who feel that they have too few players in order to run. I think we're generally in good shape, but [MENTION=16198]Reidzilla[/MENTION], I see that you're still at just two. Can you run with just two people?

One wildcard we have is that I know two people have RSVP'd for Gameday, but have not actually signed up via Warhorn. I will try and reach out to them.

No problem, I was just about to tell you to cancel my games anyway.

With no sign ups, it really doesn't make sense to take up table space.

Go a head and pull both my events.

No, my event requires four player to run well. I MIGHT be able to swing it with 3 but, I do not know how much fun it would be.

We could leave it up in hopes of some walk ins, cancel it, or we could switch it to a Giga-Robo playtest event. What do you suggest?

Done! Please feel free to sign up for something as a player if you'd like. You've run so many events for us; sit back and let someone else do the driving this time. :)

I would suggest either committing to run your event and plan to make it work for 2 or more players, or else cancel the event. I don't know that a playtest is going to draw anyone at this late date (unless you have a group of people lined up).

Then, I would suggest canceling the event. DCC rarely runs well with a small table. :)

Done. :(

Like I said before, feel free to join another event as a player. I'd also be happy to add another slot to my MotW event for you, since I know you like that game.
[MENTION=49466]Tofu_Master[/MENTION], I emailed you about finding a different event for yourself and Sam.

FYI, I've assigned tables to our remaining events. Please take a look at the Warhorn listings to check them and let me know if there are any serious issues. Please keep in mind that since we're not filling the room, I'm trying to fill from he back of the room forward, leaving the tall wargaming tables and small tables for the store. (Their walk-ins tend to be wargamers and card gamers, IME.)
[MENTION=492]Trevalon Moonleirion[/MENTION] congrats: you now have the private room.

Since we have some table cancellations, Tim and I would like to take a table for the boardgame Caverna, if that's okay. Up to six other people are welcome to play with us.

You're welcome to bring the game with you, but I don't know that I want to ask GP to dedicate a table to it. I mean, is Tim going just man the table and see if anyone wants in?

It might make more sense to just have Tim jump in to Numenéra with you, since there are only two players in it right now. I notice he's not signed up for anything in the morning.

*sigh*

CoreyHaim8MyDog has had to cancel his event due to pressing medical issues; so, no Conan in the afternoon. I've emailed the players and let them know; we may see some of them switch to other events.
[MENTION=6668372]willowx[/MENTION], your Tenra event is now in the private room. [MENTION=33941]DainXB[/MENTION], you're now at Table G.
