Malifaux Tournament 6/20/15 Hadley MA 50SS gaining grounds

Post by Inquisitor Wall » Thu Apr 23, 2015 1:16 pm

I will be running a tournament on Saturday June 20, 2015 at Off the Wall Games in Hadley. The tournament will be 3 rounds of 50 soulstones with fixed faction. The tournament will follow the 2015 gaining grounds for scoring, deployment and strategies. Schemes will be included on score sheets the day of the event. Round times will be 1:45 minutes with 15 minutes for crew selection and set up.

Crews do not need to be painted but must be fully assembled.

Best painted crews will be voted by players and organizer between round 1&2.

Round 1 starts at 11:00 rounds will be 2 hours with a few minutes to accommodate scoring. Lunch between round 1 and 2.
Preregistration is $10.00. Registration is $12.00 day of the event. Prizes will be awarded in store credit for 1st, 2nd, and best painted. If there are more than 10 players, a prize will be added for 3rd place.

If there are 8 or more players, the results will be added to the Malifaux rankings.
Preregistration can be made through PayPal Wallk583@gmail.com. Please include payment, player name and faction when preregistering.

If you have any questions feel free to contact me here or through WallK583@gmail.com

I've been wanting to play in a Malifaux Tournament, but have very little experience. Mostly reading the rulebook and watching YouTube vids where I can. Will anyone be able to run some intro games at the Auction perhaps so I can get some experience beforehand?

Kevin what specific strategies are you going to use? I'm trying to come up with an overall strategy, so I can prioritize painting.

Thanks!

Strategies will be the gaining grounds 2015 document:
Round 1 - Interference, Flank Deployment
Round 2 - Collect the Bounty, Standard Deployment
Round 3 - Guard the Stash, Close Deployment

All of the strategies for this season are from the new document, which should be pretty fun, and a little different.

The fully tournament document which contains these strategies can be found here:

Schemes will be available the day of the event.

Perfect, that's exactly what I was thinking. I'm outside on the patio now with the Gaining Grounds document, Rulebook and cards enjoying the weather and devising my crew :)

Thanks!

I'm not going to make it. I didn't realize it was the same weekend as Father's Day and I'll be busy doing family stuff.
