For outsiders....

What is the Eagles? The Eagles is a private function hall that DorkaMorka rents. It's a spacious play space with some decor issues, but I promise is better than a basement! We've have upwards of 30 gamers playing "4x6 games" and managed to fit with minimal issues.

Downstairs, the Eagles has a bar, much like a VFW, American Legion or other "club" in which the drinks are cheap and selection is limited. The drinks can come up to the function hall no issues. And you can bring up as many drinks as you want.

So, if the idea of playing table top games (Malifaux this time) and drinking some beers on a Saturday afternoon with some like minded guys, with multiple food venues within about a two minute walk, then our location will make you a very happy person....

What is DorkaMorka? We are a group of 30-something gamers who have been together for about a decade. We used to play out of Danger Planet Games in Waltham, but when that store closed we started renting the Eagles Hall on Thursday nights. We have approximately 12-15 regular players (meaning weekly/bi-weekly) with other stragglers that show up less frequently. We play predominately 40K and Blood Bowl, but some of us are taken with Malifaux, FoW and other games like Necromunda and InquisiMunda. We also break out a board game every once and while.

Played a game against a Wyrd Henchman today at Gencon. He is from the NY area, he sounded very interested in coming up to DorkaMorka on Oct. 5th. I gave him the link info, maybe he'll be able to make it up!

Spoke with him on the Wyrd boards....he ended up winning the 1.5 Avatar Tournament. He said he is going to do his best to come down to Watertown, it's about 3.5 hours for him.

Hope he can make it (and bring some other people as well)!

Attendees:

DorkaMorka/Eagles people:
Ian (preregistered)
Zombie Matt (preregistered)
Jeremy
Jack
Travis
Adam H (preregistered)

Wyrd Forums/Other:
Kevin Wall (preregistered)(wyrd forums and DM, Inquisitor Wall)
Matthew Lotz (preregistered)(wyrd forums, Silas Cordell)
Adam H's buddy
hypoking (wyrd forums)
Agnelcow (wyrd forums)

Meant to post this a little while back to get an idea of numbers and sign ups. Preregistered is exactly what it sounds like. The other names on the lists are people who've said they either are coming or very strongly intend to come barring scheduling issues, if they have minis assembled in time or other random excuses.

I'll update this as people preregister or new folks indicate they're coming.

Big thanks to Ian for all the help and work he put in to make this such a success!

This was a blast, really enjoyed the entire day, thanks to DorkaMorka for throwing what is now the record largest Malifaux tourney in the New England area (that I know of).

The drinks and food at the end of the night for those who made it out, was the icing on the cake for sure!
