Results for the Dungeon Twister Tournament at Kantcon

(07/19/2011)
First Tournament ever in Kansas!

This weekend was an exciting time for Dungeon Twister in the Midwest. Kansas City has had its ups and downs with regards to successful conventions. This was the second year for Kantcon (www.kantcon.com) and I wanted to run some events in an attempt to increase the number and types of events. There are always lots of role-playing events at our local cons, but few board game ones. It sounded like an opportunity to hit two birds with one stone: add some spice to the event list and expand the player base of Dungeon Twister.

On Friday I ran a demonstration event in hopes of drafting some people to fill out my tournament on Saturday. Wow!!! I had no idea the kind of response I was in store for at the demo. In my experience, demos typically attract two or three people. So, I was pleasantly surprised to discover I had six people pre-registered for the demo. When I ended up with a total of fourteen participants over the four hour period I was shocked. Tired and shocked, but very happy at such a great turn out. Many of those new players helped fill out my tournament roster for the next day.

The tournament did fill with twelve players the next day, although a couple showed up late after the first round had already begun. With a little bit of juggling everyone got to play, however. It was very gratifying to see so many new players (new to me anyways) who picked up the rules and strategies so quickly. Everyone played with superb sportsmanship and I had no complaints or arguments the entire time. Having such a cordial bunch of players to work with bodes well for future tournaments in the Midwest. Now I just need to get the next date set and move forward!

Congratulations to Kevin for winning the tournament!
