Hi there,

Although I've thought about attending many times, this will be my first GenCon. I'm not new to gaming, but I'm new to the convention and tournament scene. Having said that, can someone please outline for me exactly how registration for the DCC tournament works? I understand that you sign-up online when the date comes around, but does it fill-up right away? If you are lucky enough to get signed up, are you put together randomly at a table? If someone could give me the basic outline of how it all works (and anything else I'm clueless about) I'd appreciate it. Thanks.

Hey welland warrior! I'd also use the search function and browse the boards for discussions on the tournament. There are some fantastic suggestions and discussions on past tournaments. See you at GenCon!

Thanks! I suppose now I have to find a group to play with so I don't get bounced out :)

We often have single people join a group of three. Some great groups have been "pick ups".
