Any news about Eternal Week-end 2016?
I am very interested in flying to the US to participate, but it does require some logistical preparation. Do we have any news when the dates will be announced?
According to the tournament organizer @IronChef (Nick Coss, of Top Deck Games/CardTitan), a date has not been set yet, but it will likely be later in the year (I'm guessing October or so).
Inquiring minds would love to know!
That would be a shame if it got pushed back to October. The August date was so much better for me, at least. The hotels were cheaper and that huge global health conference wasn't crowding the area.
I wouldn't mind it being spaced a little way out from Gencon. Though Philly can get cold quick!
I also liked August.
It will be late Fall.
While August was nice, this year the later it is, the better the chance I can make it because our new baby will be born in August.
I need it at least to not be the first weekend in November; that's when the Virginia Film Festival is and I really don't want to have to choose between the two.
I tweeted CardTitan on Twitter when I saw the OP's question.
They said no announcement yet, but when they do, players will have at least 6 months to make travel plans. I guess that means it's September 30th or later.
Announcement is very likely coming too late again for many folks from overseas. It is really frustrating. Would love to come and play, but when the announcement is not made between January and February, there is no way to plan a US vacation appropriately =(
Please let Nick know that he should keep in mind there is indeed international attention! We always need confirmed dates ASAP. Six months is fine if something is taking place in the first half of a year, but not if it's close to the end =/
@Klep agreed! The hotel prices and availability were much better last year.
