The 9th Age

Happy Thanksgiving from the Wicked GT! News & Notes for Wicked GT 2016!

Posted on Updated on

Holiday Season is upon us here in the Midwest! Thanksgiving is right around the corner and we’d like to extend the holiday cheer to each and every person this year and to let you know some various news and notes for the upcoming Wicked GT 2016!

First, we are moving to the 9th Age on December 5th as part of our Battle for Oz Tournament Series.  Upcoming is Round 3 – The Lion’s Pride – and it will be the first ever tournament featuring The 9th Age rules! After that we’ll close out the tournament series with Round 4 – Dorothy’s Return Home – in February 2016 and then we’ll hold our 2nd ever Wicked GT, which will be featuring the 9th Age!

The date and time has now been set for the 2nd Wicked GT! March 18-20, 2016 and we have partnered with Best Western Wichita North Hotel & Suites located at:

915 East 53rd Street North, Park City, KS 67219, USA, (316) 832-9387 (Note that this is the same venue as last year.)

Registration is now open as well! Make sure to visit the Registration page if you’re interested in attending. Also note that the cost is only $50 this year!

Also (and probably the most important) the Wicked GT 2016 will now be featuring The 9th Age rule set. If you haven’t visited their site then make sure that you do very soon and familiarize yourself with the new rules. All army books have been given an update and the crew from the 9th Age have committed to having them fully complete by 2nd quarter of 2016. It’s a very exciting time as we transition over to the next era of Warhammer – The 9th Age!

A few things to look forward to over the next few months:

  • Registration! Now open! Make sure to sign up as soon as you can!
  • Beer! We’re working on our bar again for this year. Last year we had a keg of Bud Light as well as some easy mixers like rum, vodka, and fireball! This next year we look to build on that and bring you some more booze so that we can party all weekend long for the Wicked GT! The final menu will be released when we’ve worked out what all we’ll be purchasing!
  • Players Packets! Updated players packets for the 2nd Wicked GT will be released shortly after the New Year!
  • Wicked GT Trophies! If you attended last year then you know that the Wicked GT has some of the best, one-of-a-kind trophies around! They are coming back in full force this year!
  • Golden Toto Painting Competition! This year we’ve made many changes to the painting competition. A new form will be created and each participant will have to fill it out for each entry. The judging guidelines have been updated and the form will be released after the New Year so you can review it. Also, Golden Toto custom trophies are being sculpted as we speak!! Each category winner will walk away with their own custom trophy!
The trophies will look like this!
The trophies will look like this!

Lookin’ forward to a great turnout for the Wicked GT 2016! Stay tuned as we’ll have all updates here and on our Facebook page, make sure to like us and follow us on Twitter (@thewickedgt)!

Posted on Updated on

Quick post to let everybody know that the Wicked GT 2016 has officially been booked for March 18-20, 2016! We are going to use the same venue from last year at the Best Western Inn & Suites (make sure to visit the Venue tab to find out more info). We are now just under 6 months away from hosting the 2nd Wicked GT and look forward to having a great turnout.

Don’t forget that the Wicked GT 2016 will be using The 9th Age rule set so get to their website and familiarize yourself with the latest updates. If you’re local to the area, we are going to start running smaller get togethers and tournaments using the 9th Age rules as well and the first of these will take place on November 7th in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. So if you’re interested in learning the new rules and playing for a cause, then visit the Midwest Gaming Alliance page and get signed up for the many events that we are holding in both OKC and Wichita, Kansas to better familiarize ourselves with The 9th Age!

Wicked GT 2016 will be Fantasy Battles: The 9th Age!

Posted on Updated on

Lots has happened over the last few months in the gaming scene all across the country! Even as I type this there’s a great movement for keeping the spirit alive for Warhammer! Different GTs across the country have elected to move to Kings of War for their tournaments and others have elected to drop out altogether. While we have a strong gaming group that is all in favor for trying out Kings of War (and have even had our first tournament!) we still have lots of people that are interested in keeping Warhammer alive! Many people can’t get enough and simply play both Kings of War and Warhammer: 8th edition! But we are now going to move forward and are excited to announce that B.A.W.G.S. and the Midwest Gaming Alliance are adopting Fantasy Battles: The 9th Age as our gaming system going forward! That’s right! The Wicked GT 2016 will be running The 9th Age! For more information on The 9th Age movement, visit this link!

Again, we have guys who support all types of games and there are plenty of weekend tournaments that will be supporting both KoW and The 9th Age so feel free to participate in any tournament with any game system you choose! We have a lot of support from our local gaming group to move to the 9th Age and so we’re currently running our Battle for Oz Tournament Series and will finish out next month’s tournament (on October 17th) as a final send off for Warhammer 8th edition. Then going forward with Round 3 – The Lion’s Pride – we will start using The 9th Age rules! After that we’ll close out the tournament series with Round 4 – Dorothy’s Return Home – in February 2016 and then we’ll hold our 2nd ever Wicked GT, which will be featuring the 9th Age!

There’s lots more that is sure to develop over the next few months and we’ll make sure to keep you updated as things progress. In the meantime,  head on over to The 9th Age website and get yourself a copy of the rules so that you’ll be ready to participate in any of the upcoming Battle for Oz Tournaments as well as the Wicked GT in March 2016!

A few things to look forward to over the next few months:

  • Registration! We’ll open up registration for the Wicked GT 2016 very shortly!
  • Dates to be set! We’re finalizing the weekend for Wicked GT 2016 and know that it will be in March, we are just waiting for the right weekend. Coming soon!
  • Players Packets! Update players packets will all you need to know for the Wicked GT!

Lookin’ forward to a great turnout for the Wicked GT 2016! Stay tuned as we’ll have all updates here and on our Facebook page, make sure to like us and follow us on Twitter (@thewickedgt)!
