Newark Ohio. Game Table Adventures. Jan 12th. Team Yankee 93 points.

Post by Elburgo_56A » Wed Dec 05, 2018 10:56 pm

Hello here is the invite to the Game Table Adventures January Team Yankee tournament, January 12 at 10:15am. 3 rounds 93 points, up to 3 formations. Further details are on the event page. A few notable changes. First is I'm trying something different with gameplay scoring. Rather than scoring wins based off the rulebook, wins will count as 9 points, ties as 6 points, losses as 3 points. This is something I would like to try. Let me know your thoughts on it. I'm fine using the book scoring method. Next is prizes will be given for best overall, best general, best hobbyist, best sport, best NATO player, and best Warsaw Pact player. Please inform your friends.

The tournament is 3 rounds, 2.5 hours each, with 30 minutes for lunch after the first round. The tournament should end around 8:00pm.

Fee for the tournament is $20, this will go towards prize support as well as lunch (deli sandwiches) for the players. Refunds will be issued up to one week before the tournament (January 5th at 11:59pm). Money should be given to Anthony Burger directly.
Players should contact Anthony Burger if they plan on attending. An event posting will be on the HMGS-GL facebook page as well as the Battle Rankings forums to track who has registered and payed. Players should let the TO know they are attending.

There will be a reserve list if more than 30 people sign up. Players should let Anthony Burger know if they are dropping or can’t play asap, so reserve players can be notified.

If we have an odd number I (Anthony Burger) or a sub will play. If more than 10 players and an odd number attend, a player will have the option to drop and be repaid in full.

Players should bring 3 identical physical copies of their list. Digital supplements/lists on tablets are welcome but physical lists are required. Players should print off their lists before arriving. Players will use the same list for the entire tournament. Players should email their list to Anthony Burger (elburgo_1850@outlook.com) by January 9th at 11:59pm to be reviewed for an extra sportsmanship point.

Players must also bring a copy of:
• The Team Yankee Rulebook (mini or standard size)
• Forces book their list came from (multiple if using more than one nation)
• Any Errata related to the rules or their force(s)
Players should also bring dice, tokens, template, measuring tape, objectives, rule supplements or anything else they might need to play their army.

Armies don’t need to be fully painted or based but this will be part of the tournaments scoring. WYSIWIG in terms of models is enforced (For example a T-72 needs to be a T-72, it cannot stand in for a T-64, exceptions are noted below). Players should inform their opponents of any specialized teams, or special rules before their games(s) starts.

Missions will be determined the Team Yankee more mission packet on Battlefront’s website. I recommend players print off the more missions packet. The link for the mission packet is below. Players can select a single stance (Attack, Maneuver, Defend) twice per tournament. If one or both players during a mission have previously played a mission, reroll the mission selection. Tokens will be provided to indicate choice.
