The NOVA Open is this weekend, and unlike the past two years, I’ve got some pretty clear direction about what I’ll be doing.
It’ll be mostly Infinity, for me, as I take on a load comparable to doing the 40K tournament: 8 games over 3 days. It’ll be 2 events, though: the Friday Joint Ops 3 game tournament and the Saturday/Sunday Dire States 5 game tournament.
I’m squeezing in a couple of seminars, too: I was able to get into one of Roman‘s seminars (Color Theory) and I’ll be checking out the 3D printing presentations.
I’m disappointed that I won’t be able to do the speedpainting competition this year: it was a blast, and I was looking forward to it… but there are simply no sessions not in conflict with something else. It’s a bummer.
I’ll be bringing Infinity (obviously), but I’ll also have Wrath of Kings with me (since Mike and I have yet to have the chance to play it since he moved back to the East Coast) and I’ll bring stuff for Shadow War: Armageddon, since I’ve yet to actually touch that game (and it will take very little space).
I did manage to jack up my back over the weekend doing yardwork, so I might be a little pokey, but hopefully I’ll be close to 100% by the time the convention hits.
I’ll be sticking around the hotel Friday & Saturday night, so I should have a good amount of time to hang out and such.
