EN World Milwaukee Game Day?

rpghost

First Post
I was asked during our grand opening if we'd like to host a EN World Game Day event at our store. Well we now regularly host 30 player MTG tournaments on Friday Nights and have several groups of RPG players meeting at the store throughout the week. Clix events on Mondays, etc. So I think we're finally ready to host an EN World Game Day at Game Universe: http://www.Game-Universe.com

If you're not aware, we are the same company as RPGShop.com and RPGNow.com and handle all the sales for the EN World RPG Shop here. So we do have EN World T-Shirts and many unique Print on Demand products on hand. Our 3000 sq ft store is packed with RPG products and miniatures (including singles of the D&D minis).

Anyway, with Game Fest Milwaukee coming up (July 9-11) I was hoping to run an event sometime in June. We'd be able to give out passes for Game Fest convention as we're co-promoting it plus some other donated prizes. We'd also be willing to offer everyone wearing a costume or enworld tshirt a special discount at the register.

We can support about 3 or 4 RPGs going at once though it might be a bit crowded. So there isnt' a huge amount of gaming space, but we can make room. But we've had 40 + players in the store at one time in the past.

So, I ask, is this something anyone is interested in? Anyone want to help orginize this? What days are best?

Thanks,
James

I would be interested as a player, maybe DM. I wouldn't be much help setting it up since I live in upper wisconsin, but I think this would be fun. I have played there before with the group(Rat Bastards) that plays Saturday evening. Hopefully, we'll get more people that will show interest.

Milwaukee Gameday - YES!

James: I can organize this shin-dig! I was there during the grand opening, with Mark and thalmin (from Chicago). I was also there about a week ago buying a bunch of stuff (most memorably, wooden dice).

The last Saturday in June is the Chicago Gameday, so some *other* Saturday would be best. :)

How many different tables can we set up, without impinging on the store? I've seen gamers in the back area, plus by the front door. I assume we can get 3-4 tables running at once.

Anyone want to run an event? Post here! I will start an official thread once we get some details finalized. And if anyone wants to donate prizes, post here or email me.

This will be fun!

No more takers huh? Guys, you know I'm all for it. If we could get a date set, it would help. The beginning of July would work for me(any weekend).

James wants to cross-promote with Gamefest Milwaukee, which is July 9-11.

Chicago Gameday is June 26.

I see the available options as:

June 19
July 3

(see how I cleverly left off June 12, since I am busy that day ;) )

Since July 3 is a holiday weekend, I'm not sure that's a good time for a Gameday. But maybe people want to game, in celebration of Independence Day.

Any chance you can make June 19th? That gives us about a month to plan this party.

Anyone else have thoughts on a date? (June 12, June 19, or July 3)?

We have one table for gamers in the front of the store. Then the back area (about 400sqft) has several tables, easily fitting 2 game groups. 3 there would be crowded, but certainly doable. Then in front of the counter is an area that can be filled with tables for whatever reason. Some of the isles can support some card tables. We do 30 player MTG tournaments on Fridays and thats about the number of chairs and tables we have... so something more then that might require some creative use of the space/tables/chairs.

As for prizes, I'm sure I'll have several tickets to Game Fest, I have about 8 or so used 3rd edtion books that someone donated to the store to give out to people. Several Fractal Mappers v6.0 from Nbos.com that I can hand out. Some t-shirts I have as well. So without begging, the store can hand out a good amount of swag. :)

As for a date, I think that the 3rd would be hard to get people since it's a holiday weekend that many travel. June 19, while closer then I'd like, will have to do.

What else can we (the store) do to help and or promote? Do we want to do an auction? I'm also considering a midnight sale where we give 20% off to everyone who comes out that late and 25% off for everyone in costume. Maybe we can mix the event. We normally close at 8pm.

Anyway, anyone willing to take the bull by the horn and help promote that would be great. Stop in and I'll get you flyers to pass around town.

Well, I can't make a June 19 game (vacation -- for me, July 3 would have been fine). But there's always another day.

Sounds good to me. We should call James at the store and ask about dates. I'm busy all weekend, but you can call or I will call him next week.

Let's keep it pretty informal, if we can. I would suggest that we run 3-4 games (at most) in the morning, and the same # in the afternoon. The store is big, but a lot of that space is taken up by product. There is some room to have a table or two out "on the floor" as well as a couple in the back.

Any thoughts on a timeframe? November? December? January?

I was thinking January. The holidays are a busy time.

I believe you should give James a call since you know him better than I do. I only go there once in a while because I have a couple game stores closer to me.


Peace and smiles :)

p.s. Barendd, send me an e-mail, jjaws9@charter.net , about the drive down for the Chicago gameday.
