===========================

Welcome everyone to our first event, at Hamilton's own Hammercon V
( www.hammercon.ca ). We are looking forward to seeing everyone again this year, especially with the launch of our new game, "The Great Turkey Escape".

We are running this tournament to gain feedback, as well as to help more people discover the game.

And one cautionary note: we have found in many game trials that this game can evoke some high emotions. It is definatly intended to create a high degree of tension. So I hope you enjoy the trip, and we'll see you at the next game!

Please note these two important points:

  1. In the interests of keeping this a light hearted experience we will ask everyone to play with a fun and positive attitude. If anyone is abusive or becomes overly upset they will be asked to leave the game and will be removed from the tournament.
     
  2. Each player will be asked to complete a game registration form. You are to take this with you and record your game feedback throughout the game. Your feedback is invaluable to improving the experience for everyone, and is the reason why we are running this tournament.
