Players Coming to the Gladiator Games
The Gladiator Games are located not too far away from the Farmington Station Park Plaza (5 minutes). The Station Park has plenty of entertainment options, places to eat, and is located next to the Frontrunner stop. 

Visitors and Family
As this is our first year event we welcome everyone to bring along theirs friends and family to check out the fun. We do ask that anyone not participating in a tournament to please not interfere with the players during their rounds. Anyone with small children will need to keep their kids away from the playing tables. 
There will be demos and other events in the Open Play Area that visitors are welcome to check out. 

Warmachine/Hordes Tournaments

Since we did not hit the numbers required to do a two day masters event we have decided to switch to our contingency plan. Friday will be a 50pt steamroller event and Saturday will be the Masters. Those who are playing in the steamroller Friday will get their spots locked in for the Masters

T-shirts are now available for pre-order and will be on hand at the Games. Prices are $15 for pre-order and $20 at the event. Order yours today!

First Year Growing Pains.

Our first year event in less than two weeks away. This has been a long road for all of us and a learning experience. Firstly we'd like to thank everyone who has shown us support and we hope to have a great event for everyone. We've been listening to the folks in the community that have some concerns with attending the Friday events. We understand that life, school, work, and family get in the way of our hobby time. We've been looking at the numbers of pre-registration and trying to estimate how many players will show up the day of the event. The question we have to ask is what happens if we do not get enough folks on Friday for the qualifying tournaments. 

Please plan your schedule according to what is already on the Master List, but if the numbers don't work out Friday here is our contingency plan:



Warmachine/Hordes Masters
Friday
Masters Qualifier will be changed to a 50pt Steamroller event. Those playing in the Steamroller will have their seats locked in for the Masters on Saturday.

Youngbloods tournament will be canceled. 

Saturday
Masters 50pt 3 list tournament held all day. Prize support will not be changed. 

Who's the Boss will be canceled.

All other Saturday Warmachine events will stay the same. 



Warhammer 40k
Friday
Qualifier will stay the same and players will still play to lock their seating for Saturday.

Saturday
40K finals. Players will still be accepted up to the 30 man cap. Those who did not play Friday will have a low seat and be randomized paired first round.


Magic Update and HeroClix



We are scaling back the cost and activities of our Magic the Gathering events. This is in part to the lack of feedback we've received from the community. We'll evaluate if we want to have more Magic events next year so please email us if you'd like to see more tournaments for Magic. 

Magic will now be in the Open Play Area and the cost has been changed to $5. This of course means the tournaments we had planned will no longer be available, but the Gamer's Asylum events will still be happening at their additional cost.  



In other news we are proud to introduce HeroClix events sponsored by HaJoMaJe.





HeroClix will be in the Open Area both Friday and Saturday
Cost: $5
