Sun., Aug. 3 at 9 a.m., thru Tues., Aug. 5
Lancaster Host, Lancaster PA
Welcome to the third Rising Sun mini-con
which features dedicated play of Victory in the Pacific in seven rounds of pure swiss format. 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...
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
comflict 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.
