Wollongong Tournament at Good Games Wollongong - 17 March

Post by Babs »

I am wanting to placecard a tournament for February or March 2018.
The PRIMARY reason for this tournament, if it proceeds, is to kickstart Season III of the Wollongong Blood Bowl League.

One Day tournament.
Early Bird Rego of $15. Pay within 2 weeks of the event, or on the day $20.

Three games only - with 3 hours per game. The primary reason for this is we have a large-ish number of rookie coaches who play fairly slowly (blame me as one of their mentors!)


Things I am interested in your opinion:

* Ruleset for a 3 game tourney
- (TV, semi-progression, star players, skill choices)
* Cards - in or out?
* Khorne and Brettonian - in or out?
* Prizes - what do people want?

Make sure you include ball rules, they're awesome!

With 3 hours a game I don't think I will be able to make this one.

I get what you are trying to do but 3 he games will kill the tournament more than benefit

I agree with Rabid. While I'm very unlikely to attend an event in Wollongong, even if it was local I'd not want to attend with that sort of schedule.
I feel only two things: nothing and nothingness.

It's revised - 2 hours and 10 mins per game. Thanks for sharpening my thinking!

Can you spell out the ruleset for those of us not on facebook or lucky enough to have binoculars to zoom in on the tiny text on that image

Thanks.

Are Wizards allowed? The NAF page (p.10) says optional and they aren't mentioned in your rules (p.1), however you do mention them in the miniatures section (p.5 point 3) and they are included as an available inducement (p.18).

Correct - available as an inducement, and that includes Schottheim.

...and we have some glow in the dark dice for all registered players - and up to 7 for the first 25.

(These are the prototype dice - some modifications were ordered - I am praying they get here in time...)

The images on the dice.

And some other dice for the first 25 registrations.

This is not the complete list of 'gifts' with registration.

...and my Block dice that double as D6 arrived today! Woot.

This confirms that the first 25 registered players will receive 7 free gifts - three of which are the block dice, and the 4th and 5th are the two dice shown above.
