This is getting better and better.  Anyone know what the class limit will be ... how many classes each person can sign up for?

 

It's really a good idea not to overburden yourself, especially with back-to-back classes. Besides having to rush between classes, you'll miss out on other stuff as @Cranky Dog said.

 

Also, schedule in lunch and dinner.

 

My advice, write down a list of things you really want to learn, mark if demo or hands-on is important, then prioritize. My list looks something like:

 

Sculpting (hands on)

OSL (either)

Monochrome (hands on)

Advanced Basing (hands on)

Conversions (either)

Painting Flats (either)

Etc... 

 

Once you have your list, it's easier to pick classes.

Taking as many classes as you can fit in your schedule isn't necessarily a good thing. You'll be missing out on all the other side activities.

 

- Paint-N-takes

- RPGs

- Boardgames

- Visit to Reaper HQ

- All the shopping and scavenging at the melt table!

- Talking to the all the pro painters/sculptors

- Chilling out with the rest of us.

 

I had a full schedule of classes and games at my first ReaperCon last year, and I felt like I missed out on a few things.

QFT.

 

I jammed in as many scheduled activities as possible for my first Reapercon, and, while I did enjoy myself, I noticed that I missed out on a lot of the other things, like Cranky just mentioned.

Last year, I was more laid back and managed to get in on some of the 'other' activities.

This isn't Highlander's first time lol. They like to take as many classes as possible.

 

 

But still good advice for ppl.

Yup.  This ain't my first rodeo.  I go for the classes.  And to view the minis.  Because of the cost involved, I feel I need to max out my classes.  If I were only going to attend one or two, it wouldn't be, for me, cost effective.

We have added new classes by 6 additional instructors.

Michelle Blastenbrei, Glen Phillips, Ian Markon, Greg Zuniga, Brice Cocaneur, and Matt DiPietro.

 

We will continue to add more instructors and classes to the mix throughout the next few months, so keep an eye out!

Last year the limit was 8 classes per ticket.  

 

Oh. Oh that's dangerous. I thought it was totaling 8 between my husband's and my ticket!

 

I need to increase my RCon budget.

I wanted to take 6 but only got in 5 last year and that really seemed to be the perfect amount with Saturday as a day off from classes to play Pathfinder and shop.. otherwise you like to think you have enough time to shop before they close but in reality...

This.  I took one class a day, but spent most of my time running Frostgrave demos.  I didn't get as much socializing/gaming/shopping time in.  I'll be shooting for one class a day again, but I won't tie myself down to one place.

In the words of the great George Strait:

 

But I'll be lookin' for 8 when they pull that gate

I'm sorry.

 

I thought it was clear that this schedule of courses was being added to on a regular basis and was not yet complete.

sigh.  I want to take classes this year, but I also want to just enjoy hanging out with everyone and relaxing and all that.  I'll have to think on it.  Plenty of time to plot and plan!
