Melbournian/Melbournites (people from melbourne) - SIGN IN!
« on: August 2, 2006, 02:46:25 AM »
Hey everyone.

I'm looking for anyone and everyone here on 40KO from Melbourne, Australia.

I want to know how many of you there are and how many would be interested in participating in a tournament or gaming get together at some stage.

I have seen how succesfull the London tournaments have been and would love to get the same thing happening here.

This post is just for an idea of numbers and a gauging of interest. But if the idea seems popular i will most definitely arrange some sort of tournament.

Thx all.

I'm in and I can certainly try to bring in some of my buddies.  It would probably have to be on a weekend for me (naturally) and accessable by public transport.

I play at La Trobe University, where I also happen to be the president of the Wargamers of La Trobe, more from convenience than by being able to play awesomely.  I am there most Fridays.
As for getting more people into this thing, Archite Balthraka, perhaps you should put something in your sig, or pm-ing the senior aussies to get into this.  Check their profiles to see their location though, to make sure you aren't inviting people from Perth.
To be honest I never checked this board (and didn't know it's existance) until that post you'd seen AB, and have rarely checked it since.
Good luck with finding people.

Ah yes, another one herea also... ;)

I am still in the process of building my Guard army, but due to lack of time, it seems to me that the army would never be done until my University holidays.

I play at La Trobe University, where I also happen to be the president of the Wargamers of La Trobe, more from convenience than by being able to play awesomely.  I am there most Fridays.

Funny though that they don't really have such club like that here in Monash University. (Or there is one, but I just never notice it)

Oh, and I happen to live right in the middle of the city BTW...

Good Good!

The spots are filling up.

As i said, this is mainly an interest gauger, but if we get enough something will be done.

I'm from Melbourne, lived in Ashburton and Glen Iris, but I'm living a little further away at the moment... :P (see my flag).

I hope we'll be moving back sometime, but not for a year or two.

Sorry for the double post.

But it appears that there really is not enough interest for this to happen...  :'(

If it suddenly picks up then i will reconsider, but atm it looms bleak.

I could do something, possibly, but not until the holidays at least. And I'm not much of a gamer anyway, so you'd all have to put up with my unfamiliarity with 4th ed. rules...

Ah!

Interest is picking up again.

This wont be occuring for a little while. (At least until the end of the ski season)

But if we get about...10...people (there appear to be 17 melbournians on this site) then i will go ahead.

Once the interest level is high enough i will look into where to hold it (maybe rojo can help with that) and dates/food/etc.


@ Irandura. Maybe if u dont want to play u can come along and help me with the organisation (seeing as i will be playing and organising) Plus if we end up with odd numbers you can play some games

BTW: Here is the list of those interested so far.

Oh, I'll play. It could be fun... it's just that when I play, I usually play heavily house-ruled 3rd ed., and usually quiet games. Players around the table only, that sort of thing. The most I've ever had around the gaming table was four, all good friends, in two teams. I think if I was at a public table with people watching, I would end up yelling at them to go away and shut up.

So I don't know if it would work, but I'm willing to give it a shot. Depends on where you'd be running the thing, organisation, etc.

Well we dont want u yelling at people....

But i also hate others around the table IF THEY GIVE ADVICE

So long as they just stand there and oooh and aaah i dont care.

But i would like to make it a rule of no pointing out tactics etc...
