Comment: All the best freaks are here.
Weekend passes purchased, hotel room reserved! My buddy & I will be driving the 8 hours from Wausau WI on Thursday. This will be my 'best man'/'bachelor party weekend' gift to my friend Brad, who will be renewing his wedding vows in Aug 2018. We're both longtime Palladium fans & players. He's especially looking forward to trying Robotech Tactics and playing Rifts, Robotech, & other games. I'm especially interested in trying Beyond the Supernatural and playing TMNT, Palladium Fantasy, & Robotech. We're super excited to attend :-D
Question: Reading up on past POHs, it appears signing up for games can be a challenge... Any word on possible pre-reg once game events are finalized? Either way, the weekend is sure to be a treat :)

Well, I've wanted pre-reg for a while, but I think the schedule is fluid so they don't do it that way. Last time, you would be in a morning game and the afternoon game sign-up would be posted and people would leave the table and flock to the board. Then it was shoulder to shoulder with people trying to sign up for favored games. Inelegant, unfair, and probably a little dangerous. Even if there is online sign up there will be people who are left out. There could also be people signing up for everything just in case. This could happen with the paper and pencil but it's less likely with a throng of people behind you. Still, I think registering before hand is the best way to go about it.

I believe (but could be wrong) that VIP Night attendees can prereg for events across the weekend on Thursday. I sorta remember pre-regging for everything that night the two times when I went.

But I would not stress it. You will be in many good games regardless.

There will be pickup games and pre-planned games at the hotel, and loads of games at the warehouse, including last minute changes which always happen as GMs cancel because real life got dorky and someone else jumps into the slot.

Well, last time what you could do was register for the Friday morning games Thursday night, but that was it. The schedules weren't out until the segment before. So Friday evening wasn't out until Friday afternoon and Saturday morning wasn't out until Friday evening.
