 by: Uberdark

did the imaginary hot chick get your attention?
Yes that's right, the GP NORTH is doing a tourney.

February 19th, 2011.
10:00 am to close.
1750 pts.
Standard force organization applies
14 people tourney.  Sorry guys, but there just is NOT enough room for more than that.

3 games tourney:
battle missions:
                        game 1:  Blitzkrieg
                        game 2:  Implacable Advance
                        game 3:  Pre-emptive strike.
swiss tournament style.

All games come straight from the battle missions book and scoring is as follows.
15 points for a win.
5 points for a loss.
+5 for tabling.
3 points for secret objective in each game.

the secret objective is unknown at this time, thats why its a secret.

prize support is good.  admission is 100% free.  awards for 1st place, 2nd place, best painted army, and best model.  

A door prize of a free Gamesday Ticket is also being given away.  woot!!!!!
any other questions call the game preserve store or check out the website. you call to or come in to save yourself a seat.
and at that there are now 13 spots left.  Cause I just got the first one.  :P


  1. ok Gang. This is the first I'm hearing of this. It's going to be interesting.

  2. wait, Do you mean Feb. 19th?

    I mean Jan 19th is during a regular Wed. Night, but I THINK you're going to be teaching, and I know I'll be at work....

  3. yep the 19th of fault...i typed it up at the store....this is my idea of a tourney.

  4. and is that sandwyrm in his younger years....cause DANG!!!

  5. I'm not going to lie, I get the creeps every-time I load the page now. I've only been to the North store once I think. I've been meaning to go up there for a game sometime, but work hasn't let me yet.

    Not that I wouldn't be interested in going, but 14 person cap is a little restricting, also I would be the 5th Saturday in a row I'd ask off work. Best of luck with it, and good luck to all who go.

  6. Quick question on those missions out of the book - which of the 3 (of each army's 3) are they? 1st, 2nd, or 3rd?

    Ah, scratch that anyway, just checked, that's the one day I already have on my schedule for February.

    Best of luck to those able to go!

  7. well grave tbh most people agree that a 14 person tourney is just too small. but you have to realize the amount of space they have. generally no more than 12 in the back, and i got special permission from the manager to load 2 more players in the main area. so while that stinks, it is what it is. and the idea of a free game, with a gamesday ticket just is too good to pass up. :)

  8. I don't think 14 is too restrictive. Not with 3 rounds anyway. I mean think about it each player will only play 3 games anyway and it will keep the win/loss records pretty close. I would say it's rare but it's happened at 3 tournaments with over 30 people where out of my regular play group of 4 3 of us played each other in each event. I had one where 2/3 of my games were against these guys. That's depressing sure they're fun but I go to events to play someone new and find a new challenge. My point is even in slightly larger events playing someone you play regularly isn't uncommon and a limiting the field doesn't limit the challenge. Sure I think most guys enjoy larger events but the small ones can be just as much fun.

    Good luck to you guys with this event.

  9. Great choice of pic! I love some of the Aphex Twin covers (and their videos), saw them live once and it was an experience :)
