More on Little Egypt Wars

For those interested in more statistics from this year's LEW, we had 115 full attendees. with 26 judges and 89 players, with 6 visitors  Pathfinder was the most played RPG event with 2 tables rnning in slots 1 & 2 and one table at  7 p.m.  D&D 3.5 was next strongest, with one table played in each slot,  followed by FAST, with one table played in botht he 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. sessions.  Various World of Darkness games  ran in the morning and afternoon.  There RPGS are definitely ones the con will solicit for next year.

Magic pulled 20 players for the Standard tournament and about half that for the evenings Commander tournament.  Since we were able to provide prizes to the Magic tournaments without busting the convention's budget, that's a practice we will endeavor to continue in the future.  Yu Gi Oh pulled 11 players for all three sessions so we will plan on running a full slate of Yu Gi Oh next year, hopefully adding Pokemon into the mix.

Boardgames ran at least 2 tables in the 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. sessions and 1 table during the 7 p.m. session.  Thanks to the Centralia judge group for running the boardgame room.  We hope to get a highly visual game such as Lego Wars or Clay o Rama in for next year's event.

Miniatures was the real suprise, with only 5 people turning up for the day long Warhammer 40,000 event.  While they had fun, the all day event wound down long before the end of the second session.  Hopefully a Rogue Trader run next year will pull more people.We had a little interest in the Warhammer Fantasy Battle Rogue Trader, enoug that we will run at least one WFB session at Egypt Wars and a couple of games of HeroClix.
