Default Games day

This may be in the wrong place but do any of you have tips for someone who's going to gamesday for the first time? Like what to bring or do while there?

zenai, GD isn't really a tourney.

First off don't bother brining an army, they will have games set up and you have to book bring and battle games early.

Second, it is always worth entering Golden Daemon even if you stand no chance of winning because the gates to the daemon open earlier.

Thirdly, arrive with plenty of time so you can be near the front of the queue.

Fourthly, you want your money's worth so look at the scenery thing and the conversion comp, you make your stuff on the day and get to keep it (its included in your ticket).

Lastly, have fun!

Thats ok

My advice - bring as much money as you can. Simply put, they have everything there - Forgeworld, Black Industries, and you can get stuff you wouldn't normally be able to without paying postage etc. I usually bring Ł100 or so, even if I don't want anything at the time.

Which GD are you going to, out of curisoity? If its Birmingham, come and check out the Blackfish Games Club participation battle, I'll be on table most of the day.

As for Bring and Battle, if you can securely carry a 400 point army with you without taking up too much room, do it. You can then book a battle with a friend, but if you aren't able, you've not suffered for lugging tons of stuff around.

Sounds cool. We are running another participation game - we've done few as GCN members, and this should be the best one yet
