The Harvester of Souls (ITC event) -- Gamer's Haven, Spokane Valley WA -- Nov 8-9


Recommended Posts

The Harvester is back for a third year.  As with last year this is a 'whole hobby' oriented event with a unique mission on every table; equal weighting of gameplay, appearance and sports for overall; and prize support going toward raffles and cool trophies.


We are now an ITC event.  We had 44 players at our last ITC event (the Storm) and we expect to have similar attendance for the Harvester.  So if you are looking for more ITC points this may be your last chance before the LVO.


Cost $40

Harvester is a wrap!


Thanks to all the Ordo community members that made the trip over!  Always great to have you guys and nice to see some new faces.  


We had 32 players show up for two days of gaming (and for many of us -- drinking at the bar across the parking lot).   


After the dust and dice settled here is how things shook out:


Brian Haler (Necrons) -- Overall Harvester Champion!

Andy Arganbright (Orks) -- Best Sportsmanship [was also technically Best Appearance as well]

Sean Morgan (Tau Cadre/Necron) -- Best General

Jeremy Veyssiere. (Space Marines) -- Best Appearance [2nd Overall by 1 point]

Bryan Butler (Tau/Tau Cadre) -- Players Choice




Despite a few hiccups at the start and the end and a surprising amount of drops the week of, I think it was a very successful event.  It helped that we had two additional volunteers this time.


Look for the Storm GT in April/May 2015 and the Harvester again in October/November 2015!
