Rising Sun Pre-Con
Feb. 10, 2007

Sun., July 29 through Tues., July 31, 2007
Lancaster Host, Lancaster PA

Welcome to the second Rising Sun Pre-Con on Sun., July 29, thru Tues., July 31, 2007, which features dedicated play of Victory in the Pacific in seven rounds of pure Swiss competition. Not actually part of WBC proper, Rising Sun is sort of an opening skirmish for those who can’t get enough of a good thing.

Is Centurion status in your future? Send out a patrol to Rising Sun for an early start to your gaming Campaign week. Or if a stay for all of WBC isn’t possible, get your gaming fix during the pre-con weekend.

WBC attendees have long lamented the many conflicts between their favorite WBC events. So many games, so little time…No event has tested its faithful more than Victory in the Pacific whose pure seven rounds of Swiss play have taken place in the midst of all sorts of other gaming temptations during the height of WBC for 14 consecutive years. During that run, the faithful have always heard the laments of others that if only it did not conflict with X, they’d be there too.

Well, now you have your chance. By moving to a Pre-Con slot, Victory in the Pacific frees you from the temptations of those other gaming sirens and allows you to experience the pure thrills of seeing just how many games you can win in seven rounds… while freeing you for all the other WBC events commencing as Rising Sun draws to a close.

With play in a Pre-Con, those making the pilgrimmage to WBC can get more bang for their travel buck while increasing the number of events they can play during a glorious eight-day stint of uninterrupted gaming if they so choose. Valhalla for gamers…here on Earth and only at WBC.

For more specific Victory in the Pacific event details, see the VIP Preview or the GM’s site.
