Mother's Day The Resistance (Avalon) Tournament

I think it's time for another tournament! In honor of this upcoming week's TableTop episode of The Resistance, I thought I would host a tournament for the game too. We'll try to keep it all Avalon, but due to a potential lack of copies of the game, we might have to have a game or two of the original. It's on Mother's Day, so you probably want to hang out with mum for lunch or something so you can make the 2pm start time. (Or bring her with!) It should finish by 6pm, but these games go quickly, so people are welcome to play more games after! I will!

I will also be there an hour early to teach rules to newbies and play some practice games. Rules only take a couple minutes to teach and games take about 10 minutes to play, so newbies are VERY WELCOME. I won't be playing in the tournament so that I can keep up with randomly assigning people to tables for each round and answering questions.

STRUCTURE
I'll randomly assign people to tables of ~8 people for 6 rounds of play so you can build up your Win/Loss record and then the top ~8 records will play in a 3 round championship where the best record in the championship rounds will be the champion(s).

COST
Just a few bucks each to cover the space rental. I'm thinking about maybe providing some prizes too... more to come on that subject.

NOTES
- Please bring any copies of The Resistance and The Resistance Avalon that you may have.
- I'll do some video recording and put together a little YouTube video of the action to send out to everyone, so by joining this event, you are agreeing to have your awesome play documented on YouTube. :)
- Lemme know if you have suggestions!

    Some interesting facts... in 6 player games with 4 loyal and 2 minions, only using merlin and the assassin and occasionally lady of the lake.... it was fairly even with the loyal knights winning 5/11 times. Once lady of the lake was introduced, the loyal knights only won 1/6 times. Also, in a game with 3 new-ish players and 3 veteran-ish players, the minion side got better and better as everyone learned player "tells". The minion side took the final 5 games.

    Thanks everyone for coming! That was some brilliant foolery by our tournament champion, Sam, who ended with a 9-2 record!

    If anyone has Avalon, please bring it with ya. We probably won't have more than two tables going at once, but just in case we get some last minute players, it would be nice to have some extras.

    We gotta get some more attendees for this tourney! Invite your friends! We can have a tournament of some kind as long as we have at least 5 people attending. We can always switch over to other games if we finish early too.

      Sure! You'll have to take losses for any rounds that have occurred, but you can at least get in on some Resistance action. I'm sure some of us will play games after the tourney too!
