1819Re: Combat Commander
- 8 Sep, 2012Doug, right now things are pretty simple and manageable. People can add their games to the database and as I get closer to convention I firm up the schedule and do the table assignments. Stephen is right regarding Dragonflight. Even with their online event registration, it still comes down to a real person going through all the submissions and figuring out how to arrange all the games in the space available. I originally considered just letting people grab tables as they arrived but it offended my need for order and I wanted to have something that prospective attendees could look at to see if something caught their eye. While my present system is a tad arcane, I think it does a good job of showing what will be played at the convention.
