I was there today.  :D Unfortunately only for one day.

They have two or three tables with mage wars at the pegasus booth and you can buy the german Mage Wars and all the expansions except forged in fire at severals booths. No tournament as far as I know.

Sorry I missed you.  I am helping at another stand, (not for mage Wars)  if anyone is around,  2E131, if anyone wants to come along for a chat.

I was there at the Pegasus booth for 4 days and gave demos on German for 8 hours per day. It was awesome ;)

Good on you.  That is a place where I did see Mage Wars, even if it was in German.  I hope you got a lot of people enthusiastic for it

Of course! It’s hard with Mage Wars to not get the people like it :)

I did about 40–50 demos, 80–100 players and most really liked it. Got a big number of positive feedback after the demos and many couldn’t wait to buy it and try it at home. And what really surprised me, there where even multiple groups who said they learned Mage Wars from me last year at Essen, instantly bought it and love it. To be honest, I couldn’t even remember which games I tried last year at Essen, let alone who explained them! But it’s those things which really show that Mage Wars is an awesome game and it seems I’m not doing everything wrong with my demos ;)

I do agree.  But this momentum should not be lost.  It is great that Pegasus has the demos but if it is growing we should of could have an apart event or stand for Mage Wars next year.  This is a great opportunity for Arcane Wonders which could of course work in partnership with Pegasus.
