Winter Open Mini-Tournament - Nov1 - Jan10

Since the summer tournament couldn't get started, im going to start a small 3 game mini tournament to get things started again.

The rules are as follows:

-2500 points

-Special characters are allowed

-You must use the same army and army list for all 3 games. We will keep this on the honor system as this is more of a warm up/practice tournament.
-Play any 3 opponents who RSVP for this event. However, you cannot play the same opponent twice.
-Use the standard rules for determining victory points as listed in the rulebook. Based on the victory points, scores for each game will be awarded using the 20-0 system as shown below. The victor will be the player with the highest score, so it behooves you to fight until the end and get as many points as you can. Any player who conceeds receives 0 points, while his opponent will receive a full 20.  Play any of the standard rulebook scenarios besides blood and glory or watchtower.

Difference in Points: Winner Score: Loser Score:
0-100                               10                    10
[masked]                           11                      9
[masked]                           12                      8
[masked]                           13                      7
[masked]                         14                      6
[masked]                       15                      5
[masked]                       16                      4
[masked]                       17                      3
[masked]                       18                      2
[masked]                       19                      1
2400+                               20                     0

Those are the rules, should be simple enough to understand. Try and play games at Galactic Force or Chicago Dice Dojo when possible so we can support the few warhammer stores we have in the city. As long as at least 4 of us sign up, the competition is on. Games start immediately. Competition will end when complete, with a definite end date of December 10th. Post the results of each game (ex: Dom 15:5 victory over Sam) on this meetup, and I will update the standings here. RSVP with the Army you intend to play.

 

Current Standings:

Eddie - Demons - 40pts - 2 games played

CJ - Dark Elves - 0pts - 1 game played

Sam - Bretonnians -35 pts - 3 games played

Dom - Empire - 56 pts - 3 games played

Hector - High Elves - N/A

Jack - Vampire Counts -3 pts - 3 games played

Sergio - Dark Elves - N/A

James - Beastmen - 6 pts - 2 games played

    Anybody up for a Thursday game??

    December 24, 2012

    • Eddie M.

      James. I'm in post operation recovery at home for another 1 week or 2. The best I can offer is inviting u to my place in park ridge but only after next Tuesday maybe. Practically any time of day though. Let me know if interested.

      January 9, 2013

    • James K.

      No problem, Eddie-- feel better soon! If you're feeling up to a game a week from now (Wednesday the 16th), I'd be happy to come visit you in PR.

      January 9, 2013

  • James K.

    Okay, Jack-- let's see if we can schedule something soon! I've got a bit of a crowded schedule coming up, but I'm free most Wednesday evenings (including this coming Wednesday, the 9th). Any chance that'll work for you?

    January 4, 2013

    • Jackmarin94

      I have a bit if a busy schedule as well. I mostly am available on Saturday nights.

    For some strange reason, daemons and undead met in a clash of shrieking violence. Cacophonous dark hymns filled the air while teeth gnashed against bone and claws raked the sinewy ethereal forms mysteriously disappearing from bloodless wounds. In the end there was little proof that a battle had even occurred save for a bone-strewn graveyard more telling of a struggle long forgotten.......

    Great game Jack! We will have to have re-match. Reporting in a 20-0 victory and hoping to see a final game w James to round out the series, Sam. Thanks for putting this together.

    December 28, 2012

    • Jackmarin94

      Yeah buddy! Thanks for the daemon education. We'll have to do it again.

      December 28, 2012

  • dom

    Anyone fancy a game tonight - home game or dojo?

    December 28, 2012

  • James K.

    I'm free Wednesday afternoon/evening, and Friday morning/afternoon, if anyone's looking to pick up some points! :)

    December 25, 2012

    • dom

      If you can't find a league match, I've got some time tomorrow afternoon/evening for a game.

      December 25, 2012

    • James K.

      Sounds good-- I'll drop you an email, for planning.

      December 26, 2012

  • Sam

    Ok extended the play period one more time to Jan 10th. I know there a few of you that are close to getting 3 games in. After that, perhaps we will start our season 2 league using a similar format, with one day tournament events in between over the next 6 months or so.

  • Sam changed the date and time from Thursday, December 20, 2012 at 11:30 PM to Thursday, January 10, 2013 at 11:30 PM

  • Sam

    The Bretonnians have survived being dragged to the grave. Looking to get my other two games in next week if anyone is interested

    December 6, 2012

    • James K.

      Great-- see you then!

      December 17, 2012

    • James K.

      At 4:20, I'm about 4 miles away. See you shortly!

      December 19, 2012

  • Jackmarin94

    Still need to get another game in, anyone?

    December 16, 2012

    • James K.

      Okay, I've now filled up my Wednesday night. Jack, are you free on Saturday the 22nd, during the daytime?

      December 17, 2012

    • Jackmarin94

      Hey I'd only be able to play Saturday night :/

      December 17, 2012

  • Sam

    Extended end time. Ill be available after Dec 5th to get all 3 games in.

    November 23, 2012

    • Sam

      Wow, I looked at the pictures and we actually ended on turn 4! I need a turn counter. That was a lot of action for only 4 turns. One of the first games ive seen with turn 1 charging

      December 6, 2012

    • Jackmarin94

      Whoa really? Haha I need one as well!

      December 7, 2012

  • Zach

    Hey, this looks pretty awesome. Any thoughts of doing something similar for January through February?

    December 1, 2012

    • dom

      I'm game. You freeing up some time Zach?

      December 4, 2012

  • James K.

    Hey, Jack-- are you free today? I have the afternoon open...

    December 2, 2012

    • James K.

      Sorry, I'm only free for the afternoon... Saw your other post about Sundays, and figured it was worth asking...

      December 2, 2012

    • Jackmarin94

      Yeah I'll have Sundays off for good next year. I have this Thursday an Friday off during the day if you aren't busy.

      December 2, 2012

  • Sam

    Probably will. Also hoping to pick a date for a dice dojo 3 game, 1 day club tournament. Always thought it would be fun if we could all be in one place for a tournament, drink some beer etc. Have talked to some of the dojo folks in the past and they showed interest. Pretty much we throw in 10 bucks a person or so, and they will help us with prize support. Will look into it more after the madness of this semester is over.

    December 1, 2012

    • Jackmarin94

      Hopefully one of these could happen on a Sunday. I am forever cursed with Saturday work days :/

      December 1, 2012

    • James K.

      Eddie, I've created an event for this (look for "Day-long Warhammer Fantasy"). All, please sign up and start the conversation on this one there!

      December 2, 2012

  • dom

    Anyone looking for a game tomorrow? Preferably morning or afternoon?

    November 30, 2012

    • Sam

      Dom puts away the Ogres and still getting 20-0 on people. This is unacceptable. Perhaps the Bretonnians can take a point or two off em.

      December 1, 2012

    • dom

      Well it turns out that if you roll lots of 6s, demigryphs with a luminark are impossible to kill.

      December 1, 2012

  • dom

    Anyone looking for some games next week (after Monday)? We can do gal force, dice dojo, or house game. Lets roll some dice!

    November 21, 2012

    • James K.

      I've got some time, on Wednesday late afternoon/evening...

      November 23, 2012

    • dom

      Sounds good. Ill pm you.

      November 26, 2012

  • James K.

    I'm free for a game on Sunday afternoon (11/25), if anyone's available.

    November 23, 2012

  • Sam changed the date and time from Monday, December 10, 2012 at 11:30 PM to Thursday, December 20, 2012 at 11:30 PM

    November 21, 2012

  • James K.

    Okay, I've got my Beastmen list prepped, and I'm ready to get my game on! Anyone free on Friday the 23rd or Sunday the 25th (Thanksgiving weekend), during the daytimes?

    November 18, 2012

  • Jackmarin94

    Anyone interested in a game on Friday night?

    November 13, 2012

    • James K.

      Hey, Jack-- I missed you this week, but I'm free all day this coming Friday (the day after Thanksgiving, which I have off work). If you're free, I'd be happy to meet you, and get a game in!

      November 18, 2012

  • dom

    My empire met jacks vamps last night, and he smashed the halberdiers but thanks to a dwarven brewhouse and some drunken stubborn knights the empire held on. Dom 20: Jack 0

    November 17, 2012

  • Eddie M.

    Hey, folks. Have there been any other games in this series? I'm going to try to stumble in on Saturday in case anybody wants to play a challenge. Otherwise, hopefully people will be gaming in general

    November 17, 2012

    • James K.

      Eddie, I assume you're planning to be at the Dice Dojo-- what time? I might shake my afternoon free, and come play!

      November 17, 2012

  • Sam

    Would if I could, heading out of town though

    November 13, 2012

    • Jackmarin94

      It's cool. I think I got a game going with Dom.

      November 13, 2012

  • Sam

    Good to have you jack. You still free thurs or Fri for a game?

    November 6, 2012

    • Jackmarin94

      I usually am but this week I have a rare extra workload. Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays after 6 work best. Im bad at the internet so the best way to get a hold of me is to shoot me a text at[masked]

      November 7, 2012

  • Sam changed the location to Chicagoland Games Dice Dojo

    November 7, 2012

  • sergio g.

    I'll be there this sat and I'll try to be there early as possible, suck'z to live in south sub's, using public transportation to get there.!! =(

    November 7, 2012

  • Jackmarin94

    Cant wait to get in on this!

    November 6, 2012

  • Sam

    CJ + Eddie - don't forget to RSVP for this meetup so its easier for everyone to know who is participating. Better watch out people demons are out on the table!

    November 4, 2012

  • James K.

    I can do GalForce for a Wednesday, if they have a table free. If they don't, we could use my house as a fall-back (I live about 2-3 miles from there).

    November 1, 2012

  • Sam

    I could possibly fit in a Wed game, though would have to be at galactic force for me on those days. Would have to ask the owner if we could reserve a table as they tend to play 40k on that night

    November 1, 2012

  • James K.

    I'm booked up this weekend and next... I could fit in a game on most Wednesday evenings, or on Saturday the 17th...

    November 1, 2012

  • Eddie M.

    Daemon world or orcs..not sure quite yet as I'm a little rusty on fantasy..I will be at dojo Saturday morning so let me know if you want the first game!
