Event Listing for Little Wars 2018 (revised 3/28/18) — Preregistration is CLOSED

The Preliminary Events Listing (PEL) for Little Wars 2018 has been updatedLITTLE WARS 2018 PEL MAR 28 2018 These events will be in the Program Book. You may continue to submit events, but they will not be part of the Program Book.  The final date for submitting events is March 30.

IF YOU ARE A JUDGE AND HAVE ALREADY SUBMITTED YOUR EVENT, your time slot and event are confirmed in this listing. If there are any issues, please send your questions or corrections to events@hmgsmidwest.com. Our hope is to make the PEL a living document as new games come in.

We continue to work on physical layout and table assignments. We do not have table locations at this time. We had intended to send out table assignments ahead of the convention, but the Board of Directors elected to keep event submissions open significantly past the deadline. By doing this, all the submissions as of April 2 will actually be in the Program Book! The Program Book itself will tell you what table your game is on.

PREREGISTRATION IS CLOSED

IF YOU ARE PREREGISTERING FOR THE CONVENTION, please complete the LITTLE WARS PREREGISTRATION 2018 FORM. Enclose your personal check, cashier’s check or money order, made out to ‘HMGS-MIDWEST.’ You are not preregistered if you don’t include payment. Send your completed form and payment to:

HMGS-Midwest, c/o Paul Dayton, PO Box 352, Wayne, IL 60184

We are not accepting emails or electronic preregistrations at this time. If you want to pay electronically and use PayPal, you may mail in your registration to the above address, and then use this link to pay the appropriate amount owed. As above, if you don’t pay the correct amount, you are not preregistered.

Important: Preregistration closes March 31, 2018. Save money and preregister now!

PREREGISTERING FOR GAMES – CLOSED as of April 4

You can also preregister for up to six games on the same form. Single Day attendees may preregister for up to three events. Weekend attendees may preregister for up to six events. Each event has been assigned a unique Game Code (first column on the left of the PEL). You will need the codes for the events you wish to preregister on the form. For those wondering about the code, it does have meaning. The first three digits refer to the day. The 4th digit refers to the time slot (1 = morning, 2 = afternoon, 3 = evening). For example, the first listing in the PEL has a code of 1TH301. It means that it is a Thursday (TH) evening (3) event. PLEASE NOTE: We have indicated the maximum number of players for each event; however, preregistration will close for an event at 75% (rounded down) of the maximum number (in order to allow for slots to be available on the first day of the convention). The sooner you preregister, the more likely you will get your desired events.

For those interested in the Bolt Action tournament, here are rules and format: 2018 Little Wars BA Tournament.

For those interested in the Test of Honor tournament, here are the rules and format: 2018 Little Wars ToH Tournament
