    See that you only have 9 slots for Circus Maxgicus? Are youing to have room for generics-they are the highligh of our gencon experience. Corwin, Kim & Mike.

  5. #5 by sgibson260 on May 14, 2010 - 7:54 pm

    Sure Mike. We always leave room for generics in the chariot race. Consider yourselves #1,#2, and #3 on the generic list.
    In which slot were you looking to race?

    We are trying to limit the size of the chariot races to speed them up. But the ice track is very nasty, so the flipped chariot count should be high.

    Saturday noon slot for us Steve. I’ll probably try to squeeze into some other games of your as well-always a good frig’gin time! Thanks man!
