This tournament is sanctioned by Rio Grande, and will be a qualifier for the World Masters, if there is one in 2014.

This event will feature custom-designed kingdoms drawn from all of the Dominion sets and expansions, and will emphasize strategy and high-level play.

Details and a registration link are here.

Convention preregistration closes soon!  If you would like to reserve a place after registration has closed, email dominion2013@ucon-gaming.org.

Registration has now closed, but there are still some tickets available for purchase at the con.  I hope to see you there!

I live in Rhode Island, and got excited when I saw it was at U-con. Unfortunately, that's different from UCONN the school :(

Hmmmm, haven't been playing too much lately, but 15 minutes away might be too good to pass up on.  Any other F.DS people thinking of going?

Alas, I am unlikely to be at U-Con this year, as you already know from my email.

Robz, shark_bait, you should come to ConFusion in January too!  Much gaming fun as well as non-gaming fun!

Oh man, this isn't an unreasonable drive for me, and I don't have solid plans for that weekend, but I'm sure the g/f might not appreciate me eating up an entire Saturday to do this instead of seeing her... Someone needs to talk me out of this or else I just might show up...

You only get one chance to go to U-Con.  You'll have plenty of chances to see your g/f. 

... That's how g/f logic works, right?

Don't do it! You need to start defrosting a turkey or something for that amazing Thanksgiving meal that will take all week to prepare.

Did I talk you out of it?

I mean, I'm seeing her the weekend before, and we're trying to make Thanksgiving plans work... oh man there's not an obvious reason to not do this... I could be losing so many boy points because of this...

Simple solution:  Bring her to U-Con.  Problem solved!

That's a good idea. You'd have your own cheerleader. Or better yet, she could enter the tournament, too. You do play Dominion together, right?

By the way, what are "boy points"? Are they like Victory Points and you are worried about being cursed? Or are they like coin tokens? In which case, they need to be spent at some point....

You could always just ask her opinion.

Unfortunately she's not into Dominion -- she dislikes games with lots of interesting and difficult decisions, which is exactly what I like about games, including Dominion. Also, she's pretty introverted so a convention where there are a lot of people is something I'm pretty sure she'd hate.

And boy points, well boy points are just a discrete way of measuring the g/f's happiness with me. I've never met a girl that will confirm the existence of these boy points but I'm sure that after some abstraction they are there. The more boy points I have, the happier she is, which DIRECTLY translates to how happy I am. If I go below a certain number of boy points then I become single.

...oh yeah and I posted about this on my IRL group's page just to see who else would be interested in going and a couple of them said they would do it. That was clearly a mistake. Now it's just the g/f's veto power I have to get past, I'm going to mention it tonight...

Yes, very.

...but we're long distance, which is why I stand to lose boy points by going instead of seeing her.

Soo... after looking around on the website, it looks like pre-registration ends tomorrow night. That E-mail address in the OP, though, can I use that to get into the tournament after tomorrow night? Is that guaranteed? I probably won't want to go to any other parts of the convention.

Is there an extra fee to get into the convention or is it just $10 to play in the tournament? I may bring some IRL friends who play...

It looks like you have to pay $10 to get into the convention and $10 to play Dominion. But you can pay the convention fee at the door.

Please come! Would be fun to meet more Forumers in person.

Most of the people at this convention are introverts, so that's one thing she'd have in common to start with.  If she's never been to a convention before, I'd highly encourage trying it at least once, even if she just does some of the lighter open gaming. There are also roleplaying games, if she's so inclined...and it's at a hotel, so she can always go back up to the room to recharge her social batteries.  Con attendees get hotel rooms for nearly half price.

Convention pre-registration membership is $20 for Fri-Sat-Sun or $15 for just Saturday; these go up by $5 at the door.  Note that this is way less than you'd pay for the big cons like Origins or GenCon.  The Dominion tournament ticket is $10 additional.

Online pre-registration might not get closed for another day or two after the posted date; they sometimes allow a grace period (but best not to rely on it).

If you don't get your ticket before pre-registration closes, you can email me at dominion2013@ucon-gaming.org, and I'll hold a ticket for you.  Latecomers have to pay the at-the-door price for convention membership, though, and I'll ask them to show up early on Saturday to pick up their tickets.  Unclaimed tickets will be released for sale if the event sells out.
