Ok so registration is just about closed for this year's Omegathon, so I thought I'd start up a thread for freshly minted Omeganauts to make themselves known and also for wild speculation as to this year's batch of games.

So, what games do you think we'll be seeing? Also, what would you like to see?

    This should be the final round!

    Good Luck to this years batch of competitors, but most importantly have lots and lots of fun. It's a once in a life time thing being an Omeganaught (unless you come in second place :-P).

    If the format remains team-based, I'm still betting on 2v2 ping-pong match' for the finals.

    If not, I fully support the idea of Chess Boxing.

    When you register for a 3-day badge, one of the questions that comes up right away is if you'd like to be registered for drawing for the Omegathon.

    Closest info I could find comes from the FAQ:

    I have moved since buying my PAX passes. How do I change my address information to ensure that my passes get mailed to my current address and not my previous address?
    First, you should submit a change of address through the USPS. This will ensure all mail sent to your previous address is sent to your current address. As far as changing your registration, e-mail the updated information to:Cathy Glickstein, Senior Registration Manager, Reed Exhibitions, cglickstein@reedexpo.com

    Worth a shot.

    Shot Chess

    I played this with my brothers one Thanksgiving. You lose a piece, you take a shot. I'd LOVE to see this game in the Omegathon. :D

    Aha! I registered weeks ago and I don't remember that, but I can't imagine I would have said no to such a question. Thanks!

    I would love to see Just Dance 2 in the competition. Ever since I bought it, nothing brings me greater joy than watching/recording myself and friends flail around like idiots to pop music.

    I think that the different games that they've shown for the final round are so old-school, I would venture a guess as... Boccerball.

    Hell, I say they have an all pub-game deathmatch as the final round...

    you don't have to, but that doesn't mean you can't/wont embarrass yourself horribly. :P who know, it might be fun.

    Good point, allow me to clarify. I won't be embarrassing myself as an Omeganaut, I will embarrassing in multiple other ways.

    I just got a call too. Heck, I had to register just to post this, so it can happen to anyone.

    On the one hand I feel kinda bad because I'm hogging a space that probably should be filled by PA regular; on the other hand, we're all just here to have fun and if there's one thing I'm good at, it's being cannon fodder and a stepping stone for the true gamers out there.

    The Omegathon isn't about "true" gamers or "pro" gamers. It's randomly selected so that anybody can be chosen, and anybody could win.

    Also don't worry about not being a regular, because you are now.
