Wow! In 2018, our third year, we were excited to sell out our five events. It meant this megagame thing was growing. So for 2019 we ambitiously raised our events and tickets by double. And they sold out even faster!
As I type this, we have 4 of 600 tickets left. And that doesn't count the 17 different runs of Everything Epic's Blood Feud, which a veteran megagamer designed to be a smaller megagame in a box (32 players).
So from all the members of the Megagame Coalition, thank you for being as interested and passionate about this game genre as we are! We look forward to seeing you in August!
Den of Wolves (3) and Heavy Reign (1) have tickets left.
Various runs of Blood Feud also have tickets available.
And if you weren't lucky enough to get a ticket for your favorite megagame, then volunteer for it instead - and get perks!
Thank you for making the effort to expand.
Who knows, maybe you will keep going and give True Dungeons a run for the money in the number of sessions.
Quick question - Is Den of Wolves a good choice for a very, very first megagame but heavy into social deduction and Heavy Eurogames? Or would you suggest choosing/hoping to get into a different one?
Again, thanks for increasing the number of sessions.
In addition, I had some questions about Den of Wolves, but haven't received a response when I emailed the queries in -
Is there a better Point of Contact I should use?
Excited for my Deephaven event (Gold, gold, gold. Is my favorite dwarven song. Bonus points if you know what its from). Wanted Watch the Skies but didn't luck out.
I will be watching for a ticket to be returned for Watch the Skies, but I also know that Generic tickets work. However, $60 in generics is quite a lot for the chance to walk on, so will there be an option to buy them at the event and/or pay with Credit Card? I heard, though I cannot confirm, that True Dungeon did that last year as their tickets are ~$80.
Yes, there are several Event HQs around the con where you can buy generics. I'm not sure they take CCs, as the only time I used them I had system credit, but I can't think they won't, since not everyone has credit available. Note that if you have a bunch of generics left at the end of the con, you'll need to stand in the customer service line to return them for system credit (they don't refund generics).
Be patient with us. We're a volunteer crew and there's a lot of communication to go through :)
"Den of wolves would be a great first pick for those who enjoy social games. There are other MGs that lean more Euro-y
Den of Wolves is a bit more on the freeform end with the resource management requiring more diplomacy and negotiation than puzzling. Overall, good first timer pick"
It's our goal to become considered a convention highlight event like True Dungeon, even if that behemoth is in a class of its own :)
So glad I am able to run ALLIANCE Last Days this year. The sales show that there is a hunger for big games. It feels really incredible to be part of a fast growing community.

Imagine 'Watch the Skies' with Hollywood style sets, participants dressed for their roles, and the Control group worked over by makeup artists.
