Gaming Conventions


Does anyone here play Warhammer Quest at Gaming Conventions? I�ve brought my incomplete copy to Origins and Gencon this last year. As such No-Pay games with some friends. So if anyone might be going to either Gencon or Origins next year let me know. I�ll run a game if they�ll run a game...

.... Bob.... going... through... withdrawal..

...haven�t... played.. in... a game.. since... the. Mid 90s.

The mid 90s? eeewwwww! :b

What region of the world do you live near? I don't go to conventions but if people here know where you're from you might have a better chance of hooking up with a game.

I wouldn't actually want to play Quest at a convention because I consider it a "non-portable" game. The late 90s was the last time I was able to pack up all my materials and bring to someone else's house. Now I would feel crippled unless I spent two days packing :S Of course, that's all my fault for having reference materials all over the house

Re: Gaming Conventions



So your notes have been spread tot he four winds? Hopefully the annoying adventures involved have met a proper demise.

Gotta agree whole heartily on the transport issues for Warhammer Quest. Especially with a dungeon population far exceeding the original box. Now and days I use two different Tupperware containers for the floor tiles, doors, and token (which also have zip-lock bags), many washed empty Tang containers (plastic monsters), a large pistol case (for the metal ones), and a bag for the books and 3-ring binder. All in all I tend to trim items or minis from any trip that don�t seem like they�ll be needed. For instance the Zombie Dragon, Lord of Change, Dragon Ogres, etc.

Having just moved into Cincinnati and I believe the City of Brotherly Love is between four and five hours from here. It�s dependent on how close Philadelphia is to I-70.

As far as needing a set to play with... well I always bring mine to conventions. So if a meeting with other/s at a convention all they might need is their notes, 3-ring binder, or WQ folder. Maybe some specific miniatures, I�m short on most of the Skaven and Dark Elves Specialists. But I have enough Clan Rats & Dark Elf Corsairs to choke a horse.

Re: Gaming Conventions


Mid 90S?!?!?! how do you sleep at nights, man!!! Our gaming group tries to play every saturday, but recently two of us have been moving house and spending time packing and unpacking and the usual things associated with moving house, and we have missed two weeks in a row. Two weeks!! I can barely stand having missed 2 weeks, let alone 12 years.

I agree, trying to move Warhammer Quest is a big hassle, almost as much as moving house. It's bad enough trying to pack all those little plastic pre-painted miniatures from Wizkid's Heroclix games to transport them between locations, let alone packing carefully painted miniatures from every single army list. People who play Warhammer have it too easy in my opinion. They chose an army, and just buy miniattures for that army. We Warhammer Quest players aren't that lucky. We have to get monsters and troops from all the evil warhammer armies. In order to complete a collection of miniatures for Warhammer Quest, it pretty much means buying every single army available. I dont want to contemplate transporting all of those fellas. In my opinion, Warhammer Quest is definitely a 'non portable' game.
