The first weekend of April, we're holding a mini-con in Austin and one of the featured events will be ongoing demos of the new edition of Car Wars.

Sadly that's a bit of a trip for me, but I look forward to hearing about it from the lucky folks who do attend!

I'll be putting in a PTO request as soon as you publish an official date.

When are the signups/tickets going to be available?

I'd like to attend, but I'm a bit leery of booking a flight without a ticket to get in.

That is...surprisingly affordable. I'd be out about $1k plus incidentals to cover two flights, two nights in a hotel (catching a red-eye Friday after work), parking at my local airport, a rental car in Austin, and a kennel for the four-legged butthead.

Here's hoping Congress sorts themselves out and the IRS gets off their butts, that takes me out of "probably not" and puts me firmly in "maybe I can..." territory.

Okay. I'm going to go. Just bought my ticket. Unfortunately I don't think my arenas will fit in my carry on bag.

But a quick question for the SJG folks: how big are the mats you've been using for Car Wars?

3-foot square playmats, but the planned Sixth Edition event is something new that we're not ready to share. (And not the standard.) It's designed as an intro to the game and leads players through the basics and then into an arena.
