Sean here, bringing you the first post on the Twinfinity blog.
Why a blog? Well, I kind of dislike using Facebook as a method for “storing information”, because it’s not very good at that job. It’s a great place for active discussion, but trying to go back and find older information that you’re looking for can be quite the hassle. That said, a blog is perfect for just such a task, and the entire Twinfinity website is built upon a blog content management system anyhow, so why not use it?
So I figure that I may as well start with what I hope to accomplish here, which is quite simple: I’m hoping to make a post roughly every 2 weeks or so from here until the event actually occurs. These posts will, in theory contain a plethora of useful information for you leading up to the event including but not limited to:
So let’s get down to business:
Registration for Twinfinity 2017 will officially open on Monday, January 2nd at 12:00pm CST. I think that I may have previously said an earlier time, but I couldn’t find any actual written record of that fact, so 12:00pm CST it will be!
Registration will be a pretty simple two part process. Starting at noon on the 2nd, I will post a link to our “PayPal Button” on the front page of http://www.twinfinity.net In the Sign Up section. You can click on it in the top right-hand corner of the site to get there easily. Once you click the link you’ll do two things:
I’m currently limiting registration to 64 players.
$55 for a weekend of gaming?!?! What the hell man!
Well, here’s the deal. This stuff isn’t super cheap, to start with. We’ve got some really good friends helping do what they can do give us cool deals on cool things to do for our players. Anyone who attended last year knows that I liked to include a rundown of costs associated with the event so that you know exactly what you’re getting for your investment.
Off the bat, we’re renting the Fantasy Flight Games Event Center for the weekend and that runs close to $1,000 dollars. So, congratulations first 18 players but you just paid for the event location itself! From that point forward, 100% of your money is going to go into purchasing swag. This is a bit of a departure from last year, because last year 100% of that money went into purchasing prizes. This is because I didn’t really take the time to reach out to all of the wonderful manufacturers and Infinity partners out there to hawk for prize sponsorship and all of that.
I will be this year.
Bigger, better, stronger, faster and all of that.
So what kind of ideas am I poking around with for Swag? Keep in mind that right now, these are just ideas and what I can actually do will be directly proportional to attendance: the closer we get to that 64 player capacity, the more I can do!
I have some other ideas, but right now I’m trying not to go crazy before I’ve got some idea on what sort of budget that I have to play around with.
The Bostria Cup
A tradition started at the Iowa Incident 2016, the MIDWEST MEGA META BOSTRIA CHAMPIONS CUP will be up for grabs once again at Twinfinity 2017! Here’s how it works:
And let’s not forget, the most important part of Twinfinity….
