Shortly after attending Joelfaux last year, I got the malifaux bug really hard. I have played malifaux since it’s initial release many years ago, and have seen it go through some highs and lows in the Bristol area. For myself it’s made finding regular opponents difficult and has meant that when I wanted to travel to tournaments, an expensive and lonely journey.
Bollocks to that! It was time people came to me 🙂 I want to see the Bristol community grow again, and with 2 new gaming stores open both of which stock malifaux there has never been a better time for this game.
And with that Gertfaux was born. I’ll be honest I was not expecting much, double digits would have been fantastic. The response I got though I was not expecting. Mr Marshall himself bought a ticket, pretty much day 1, which gave the event it’s rubber stamp and ticket sales rolled along from there. The event itself brought players out of the woodwork from Bristol but also saw a dozen fresh tournament players mixing with an existing crowd of seasoned Veterans (And spooner!)
The feedback from the event has been positive, which is always good to hear, more so everyone saying they want to come back again and mark this as a regularly event they attend.
I’ll probably keep rambling so I will keep this short and sweet. Thank you to all who came, the overwhelming support for this event means a tremendous amount to me, I love running events, probably slightly more than I do gaming and to see everyone enjoy themselves and the new players not feel out of place is the best thing I could have hoped for. I will go on record and say the Malifaux community is one of, if not the best community around.
So anyway Results and photos!
