Tournaments at FaTDoG
This year we will be having our first Axis and Allies tournament complete with a trophy award for the winning player or team. This structure and rules for the tournament are being worked out right now. Stay tuned for further information. We will soon provide information on how to enter.
We plan to have some other tournaments going on at FaTDoG. These will be simply structured so they can be completed in one day. We are looking for suggestions of games you would like to see at these tournaments. So please provide some feedback. We want to tailor this convention to your needs.
We have several vendors attending FaTDoG this year. Legendary Realms, with their new store in Lindenhurst, J and D Hobbies in Massapequa Park, and Against the Odds will be there and Against the Odds will also have products from Clash of Arms, Highflying Dice Games and several other companies. We will also have several independent vendors selling their collections of games.
Signing up for Games
We are currently working on a game sign up sheet which will be available soon on the website. It will allow you to find opponents for games you want to play. Simply post the name of the game, the number of players needed and the time you will start. Other potential players can access this on the website and sign up for the game. We will then publish a master schedule several days prior to FaTDoG. In this way people can know what games are being played and how to get involved with them..
Don’t forget there is always plenty of open gaming at FaTDoG and people interested in attracting players the day of the event can simply come up to the microphone and make an announcement of what game they are playing and how many players they need. So, don’t feel you have to plan out your whole day or sign up early for gaming.
Don’t forget to bring your games, books, and miniatures to sell out our large fleamarket. There is no fee for selling so take advantage of this opportunity to make some money from your unwanted gaming collection.
We have renowned designer Hermann Luttmann who will be demonstrating some of his Civil War titles and the upcoming designs.
We are still trying to finalize other designers for game demos at FaTDoG and further information will follow.
