Default SE5 Launch Party

There have been small fan get-togethers in the past, but we are going to have one. All the cool kids are going to be there. There are some details to be ironed out, and this is where your vote comes in. So get with the voting and commenting.

South Dakota is a very central location, things are nice and cheap here. I should be able to get us a large room/hall to hold it in. I think my universities computer club and maybe even the university itself would be happy to give us an area to do this in and I should be able to get computers to play se5 on and people can bring their on computers to play se5 on. Late October would be great or November would also be good but we need to make sure its not during Thanksgiving.

Just had another idea for doing it in South Dakota. The gaming club here hosts a gaming convention early in November. We could do it at the same time and I could colaberate with them. So if you also like table top war games and M:TG and other types of things it would be perfect.

Also on that note Shrapnel could come and setup a booth here to show off their different games and such. Booth space is free and we will help you get setup.

Edit: Heres some info about Nanocon from last year lol. The details are some same I believe except the date obviously. If there is serious interrest about doing the SE5 thing during Nanocon I can get more up to date info.

Vegas baby, oh yah.

Hotels in Vegas aren't that expensive at all if you stay off the strip. Split it with 2-4 people (don't tell 'em you have that many at the desk), and it's not much at all. There are decent places for like $40 a night (maybe a tad more on weekends).

Well, I'll be heading up to San Fransisco the weekend of Nov. 4th. And Vegas could be an option from mid- to late-October. South Dakota, however, is a bit far, especially when I got classes to not fail.

hmmm, haven't done any big vacation this year. If I can work it into my schedule, it is certainly something to consider.

For those that find North America a distant and expensive prospect, would there be interest this side of the pond for a UK or EU- based party? Would be quite cool to have it at the same time, and then maybe run some internet games between the two groups. Maybe even 'merge' the parties via webcasting and big screens..?

(BTW I am NOT offering to organise any such EU-party. Unless it was right in my neighbourhood I probably wouldn't even be able to attend myself)
