ReaperCon 2012

Recommended Posts

We should be there, though I do not know which hotel yet. The BW was plush, but I think the Quality Inn we stayed at in previous years had a better breakfast buffet. (included bacon, among other things)

 

There was a promo price for Reapercon last year if you called the hotel directly and booked, not online or through the BW 800 number. I got a better price with a 4-night special BW was running at the time. Check around closer to the con date.

Depending on work I'm planning on being there. Work has an annual "tech fest" in May and I can't know if there's going to be any hard deadlines that will overlap.

 

Barring those I should be there.

 

Yeah!! Good to hear you planning on being there.

 

As well as Vejilin as well.

 

That 21 day rate was the cheapest last year. It wasn't by much maybe 5 - 8 dollars but hey every dollars counts I guess when your on vacation.

Does anyone have any particular attachment to March and April?

I'm also good with jettisoning January. I've got a pretty awesome local

con in Feb or I'd offer it up to the chopping block as well. (and I guess

there's my son's birthday at the end of Feb...I guess that is kind of important)

 

I propose we discard these interfering months to speed the process along.

I should be there as well, but my new boss reserves the right to retract vacation approvals. ::P:

 

I am looking forward to ReaperCon, but I'd just as soon keep the intervening months!

I'm ok with getting rid of the intervening months, IF and only IF by getting rid of the months I also magically advance in my trainings at work. If I can't magically advance, then I need those months. Sorry Todd!

2. Most of us stay at the Lake Dallas Best Western, up off IH-35; it's closest, and that's where the artists hang.

 

This artist doesn't so much hang at the hotel as collapse into bed when we're done hanging at Reaper HQ and then far too few hours later struggle out of it again. I do spend a few minutes eating breakfast and trying to summon coherence at the hotel before returning to Reaper HQ.

 

I expect to be doing this again at RC 2012 and look foward to seeing you all there!

To be honest I don't mind the months from now till May. With the kids in school, we get the spring stuff with them which for my daughter means tennis matches for my son we have............well we have spring stuff (he doesn't partake in anything after-school). Thou we do have his school's spaghetti feed fundraiser which is a neat day for the family. Feb brings about my daughter's birthday.

 

To be honest I think the month of April is the one I could lose & not worry about it. It's the month when the weather starts to warm up but still has the cold clinging a last few times & such. Thou last year our spring didn't finally go away till mid-June soooo heck what do I know about the seasons!!

 

Plus, for me it means more months to put off any pieces that I want to paint up & game-related stuff!!! ::P:

Hi,

 

I'm new to these boards. I'm thinking about coming to try ReaperCon but am a little confused on what is going on. I've become a big fan of the Warlord game and Reaper Minis in general. I bought a starter army for Warlord after the Dragon's Night Out game at GenCon last year.

 

Can someone help me with some questions?

 

What goes on at the Con?

What is the nearest airport?

Which hotel is closest since I will be need to cab around?

Is it worth going for the full 4 days or is Sunday a wind down sort of day?

 

Sorry for so many questions. I'd be coming in from Ontario, Canada. It is a bit expensive but I'd love the chance of meeting some new Reaper fans and learn more about the company.

 

Thanks for you help, eh?

MiniCannuck,

 

What goes on at the Con? Painting, gaming, eating, eabble-rousing, poking ReaperBryan.

What is the nearest airport? Dallas Fort Worth (DFW)

Which hotel is closest since I will be need to cab around? The Lake Dallas Best Western. If you book there, there are a lot of people who use that hotel for you to jump a ride with!

Is it worth going for the full 4 days or is Sunday a wind down sort of day? Sunday afternoon has the auction! I missed it last year but you collect Reaperbucks throughout the Con and then get to spend them for items of worth (minis, tickets to next year's con, etc).

 

Hope this answers your questions. If you have any others you can ask in this thread or start another.

 

Hope to see you there.

 

Lue.

Thanks for the replies - this really helps.

 

I don't know if I can swing anyone else from my local gaming group to go with me but I may make the trip solo.

 

People seem nice though I'm a little concerned about those slave Leia comments....

 

Doeshe have the legs to pull it off. ;)

 

When does registration open for this?

Maybe a month earlier like March or so. Usually the stuff starts in around Feb but the actual sending in cash in either March or April. People kinda jump the gun a bit for 2012. Which is fine by me, helps pass the time.
