WAAAGH! Paca; Jan 30-31st 2010WAAAGH! Paca is the bastard offspring of the Point winter tourney (RIP) and is hopefully the first of an annual gaming event. The goal of this tournament is to hang out with friends and have fun gaming while not taking ourselves too seriously (as evidenced by the Manliest Mustache competition, see below).
Prize support will be another unique aspect, the overall winner will be taking home a 1/4 scale, functional goblin spear chukka! Expect other unique prizes all around, hopefully nobody will go home looking to list their prizes on eBay ASAP.
There will also be a charity raffle for an “empire” gun, stay tuned for details!
