The event is set to be a regular appearance on the LGT lineup and will cover all rules published by PSC. This will be a mix of friendly non-competitive gatherings where players can come along for a fun game with other enthusiasts using the popular BattleGroup set, and the recent releases MeG Pacto and NorthAg. This will be also be a chance to meet and chat with the authors of rules.

In addition to the paid events, there will also be participation/demo games:
