Episode 23: Going to a 40K Event
In this episode, we talk about attending a Warhammer 40k event. We discuss the different types of events you can attend, what you can expect, and how to prepare. Most importantly, we talk about how to get the most out of the experience.
Types of Events:
- Narrative: story driven, unique missions, very relaxed time frames.
- Friendly or casual: more laid back, more time to play, usually the lists are much less intense.
- Competitive: ITC as the standard, tight mission packs and times, more games in a given day.

The goal should be that you feel comfortable regardless of the opening situation you find yourself in.
