As soon as we arrived, we made sure the special Foodhammer dice were bagged up and made available for sale. We ordered these from Chessex dice and sold them to the happy happy people for $10 a set of ten.
We also ordered some special dice for auction. Four sets of ten in different colours.
We had one person drop out at the last minute, and happily the first person who dropped out jumped back in again and at 10am we were off to a great start with game one!
Dan Deresh, GameStars manager announced spot prizes at certain trigger points in each game. The first person to cause a unit to break won a Kit-Kat. Have a break, have a Kit-Kat. The honour went to James Chen with his Salamanders.
In our first game, the spot prize objective was to be the first to kill an HQ. Calen Wong manage to do that by bumping off Shrike in his game against Devin Haverty. Well done, Calen!
Lunchtime was provided by Jordan West, the owner of the local Taco Del Mar. He brought enough for 35 people and SOLD OUT! A very large portion of the proceeds from that food sale will also go to the Langley Food Bank. Thank you Jordan, we really appreciate it. I think next time it happens we should ask Jordan to bring enough for 35 GAMERS! lol
Also, Jude Hansen Forbes baked a whole box of delicious cookies for sale by donation. Throughout the day we saw happy gamers munching on them. Thank you, Jude!
As the day went on, nobody else won Kit-Kats as they all forgot to call out for unit breaks, although in Game Two Devin Haverty won a copy of Duke Nukem Forever after he was the first to kill a unit - taking out Ryan McGechaen's Dreadknight. In Game Three, Garry Sacco and his Necrons took an enemy unit below half strength and for his efforts got a copy of Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood.
As stated earlier, our dice auctions on day one brought in $76 for two sets of dice. SEVENTY SIX! All of the regular red dice sold out in a heartbeat. The amount of food that was brought in really made us smile too. Hopefully I'll be able to fill my truck when I take it all to Langley Food Bank. The onus really is on the Fantasy players for Sunday to beat that. Square basers I'm looking at youuuu!
