The Mountaineer GT is a 2000-point, two-day Kings of War Grand Tournament held in Martinsburg, WV, in the Mid-Atlantic region. 2017 will be the inaugural Mountaineer GT, and we’re really excited to get the tournament underway. If successful, we look forward to coming back each year and making this a staple of the Mid-Atlantic competitive Kings of War scene.

2017 Kings of War Mountaineer GT Hotel

June 23-25, 2017 @ Comfort Inn Aikens Center, Martinsburg, WV

Martinsburg, WV

Martinsburg, WV is in the eastern panhandle of West Virginia, sandwiched between Maryland and Virginia. We’re about an hour and a half from Washington, DC; Baltimore, MD; and the northern VA area. We’re also about three hours from Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, PA, and Richmond, VA. The hotel and town is located right off Interstate-81, making it very convenient for travel from the north or south.

GT Venue

The inaugural Mountaineer GT will be held at the Comfort Inn Aikens Center off Edwin Miller Boulevard in Martinsburg, right off Exit 16E of Interstate-81. The hotel was recently renovated in 2014 and is in excellent condition. Until 2017, it held the Martinsburg-area gaming convention 1d4 Con, so the staff and owners are familiar with gamers and our eccentricities.

Outside alcohol is unfortunately not permitted in the public areas of the hotel, though management encourages players to imbibe in their rooms. We will also have a tended bar set up on Saturday and Sunday of the event for players with various bottled beer and a few liquors available.

Edwin Miller Boulevard is a main entryway into Martinsburg and is “blessed” with many close-by fast-food establishments for a quick meal. For a lengthier dinner, the Mountaineer Pub, Bourbon Brew House, and La Trattoria (Italian) are within a half mile from the hotel. Martinsburg also has several locations downtown; be sure to ask any of the hotel staff or us for recommendations.

We’ve secured a room block at the hotel for $79/night for participants under “Mountaineer GT”.¬†The block will be closed about three weeks short of the date; if you call and there is no availability, please reach out to us so that we can speak with the hotel and see if more rooms can be made available.
