Is the gencon meeting just a short get to know the competition thing or do you have something planned this year since I saw you may do the random token distribution at future meeting? Either way I'll think about joining to make it a even 10 and let you know soon.


This year it is going to be a short session. So that everyone can get to know one another, or at least a good portion of the league. Also will be a Q/A session that if anyone has any questions they have the chance to answer them real time.

In subsequent years we are going to hold the meeting to divide up the winnings from the previous year as well.

If you are willing to join just let me know and I can get the ball rolling for all the organization and get us moving forward.


Alright I'll join and be number 10.

Alright everyone, if you expressed interest you should have a PM from me about the league. If you wanted in and I somehow missed you please let me know ASAP.

I am quite excited to get this going! Lets have a great year!

Are we wanting to draft before or after gencon? Before I am pretty flexible and can probably manage most times after 8pm during the week, Saturdays are hit or miss and sunday I could probably do anytime. After Gencon I'll have much less free time so I'll have to get back to you on when I'd be free.

As for meeting I could probably do the friday morning meetup. I'm probably going to do the math trade scheduled for 8am friday and could meet after that.

I would definitely prefer to draft after GC. There are already enough variables with player injury, adding in the risk of the preseason games seems to be a bad idea.

I'm available to meet up
Tuesday Any time
Wednesday 10 am-4 pm
Thursday 1030-12 am
Friday 10 am-3 pm
Saturday 10 am -7 pm
Sunday 10 am- 2 pm

10 AM Friday for the meet is actually doable for me (and Mike and I have a run at 11:15)

I would prefer draft after GenCon due to potential injuries but I am flexible.

(First league for me so this is a learning experience)

I do agree with that in regards to injuries. It does suck to spend a first pick or a large % of auction money on someone that doesn't even play one game. I can definitely make something work after gencon if that what everyone else is in favor of, just not as available in the fall as I am right now.

I was thinking the next weekend after Gen Con, pretty much any time

Friday morning I have an Escape Room event @ 9:15 ---- so could probably meet over there around 10:30 or so depending on how fast we get out

As for the draft itself - evenings on the weekend work better for me. I'm stuck working retail - so work until 5 PM Central on both days normally.

acknowledged... seems like Friday morning is going to work for most thus far. So I will meet with you separately and make sure everything is good for you.

In other news we have over half the league already paid! With one promise to pay next week. Thanks for making this go smoothly guys and gals!

League dues are en root, as promised.

Cary, I also have prior commitments Friday morning so let's see if we can coordinate a time when we are both free to save Mike some leg work. PM me.

As for a draft time I'm available during the early morning/afternoon Fri-Sun (24-26) the weekend following GenCon. I work nights 7:30p-8:00a so I need to leave my place by 6:30p. Makes my window 9AM-6:30PM roughly. I've never done a draft auction so I was assuming 2-3 hrs for draft length.

On a side note, anyone know when the last day for submission of transmutable tokens before GenCon is? I know I have the opportunity for relic and legendary tokens at the Con, but I just made a few more trade tokens I'd like to exchange.

Pretty sure Jeff said it will be August 7th.
