I am going to try and make it down Dave.  I was wondering what the deal with picking your "5" was.  Do you choose it before the tourney?  Do you choose it before each game?

I usually only get to play one guy who plays one specific Megacon so i fully expect to come in last against all you multicon vets!

Don't bet on it!  I'm the one taking last place in these here parts so you've got a fight on your hands!

I only have one megacon myself so don't fret.  I would think being able to choose your 5 troopers before each match might be the way to go, otherwise you could be left vulnerable to someone else's abilities.

Is it wierd that we are fighting over who will do worse??  :)

Major Glory - That's how they do it at Gencon.  I just wanted to double check since, if it's not that way, I really need to try and make the hard decision of who to leave at home!

You can switch up your main 5 guys each round, this Tourney is really for people to have fun and play some games - with a little friendly competition of course.

The Tourney that I was part of was a 3 round, 2hrs per round (dont think it will take that long but...) and it will be point based. score 1 point for each opponents model eliminated and an additional 5 points if you manage to take out the entire team. It worked pretty well and everyone had fun so I will emulate this setup. The only difference is that all games were played ona 2D mat, I will set up 3D terrain and explain all the ER's before the games start. Expect a lot of AT-43 crates and barrels....

Cool, thanks for the heads up Dave.  If you decide to go 2D let me know and I can bring my mats with me :)  I am pretty excited about this.  As long as the bank doesn't move up my house closing to Friday I will be there.

Had a great time running the Tourney yesterday! We had 6 players (including myself) and we all had very close games.

Highlights will be discussed on the next Snap to cover pod cast at snaptocover.com

Prizes went out to the top 3 players who were:

1st Bo $30
2nd Shane $20
3rd Tobin $10

I'll be planning another tourney soon, possibly with a scenario or two!

To all who attended please send me feed back either here or PM or email: dkoske@gmail.com

Thanks!
