NHSD Massacre in Michigan!!
 
Massacre in Michigan


2nd Annual Nation HeroScape Day Tournament in Michigan
Date: National Heroscape Day (October 18th, 2008)
Location: Fun 4 All Comics and Games in Ypsilanti, MI (the normal place)
Time: Set up begins at 11:45 am. The tournament will start as close to 1:00 pm as possible.
Cost: $5 (you may bring a HeroScape related prize instead - ask if you are not sure)

Format: Swiss-Style Tournament lasting from 3-5 rounds depending on the number of entries. 8 or less = 3 rounds, 9-16 = 4 rounds, 17-32 = 5 rounds. The more people that show up, the longer the tournament will be. There will be no "final".

We will use Hasbro rules for scoring (full points for Heroes and Squads) for simplicity. Any obvious attempt at turtling or stalling (as determined by me since I don't like anybody and therefore would not be biased in any way shape or form :runaway: ) will result in an automatic loss.

Rounds will last approximately 50 minutes and a 15 minute warning will be given.

Scoring:
3 "skulls" for a total destruction win
2 "skulls" for victory with 400-799 points destroyed
2 "skulls" for a loss with 600+ points destroyed
1 "skull" for a victory with less than 400 points destroyed
1 "skull" for a loss with 400+ points destroyed.

Army: Each player will bring a pre-constructed 800 point army including all materials needed to play the game (dice, order markers, wound markers, etc.) No Marvel figures are allowed. The army must fit within the standard 24-hex starting zone of each map.

Special Rules: Map Specified Static Glyphs will be used. For maps where random glyphs are called for we will use +2 move and +8 initiative.

Selected Maps:

Embattled Fen by GameBear
Requires one Swarm of the Marro Master Set and one Castle set.

I was considering not hosting a tournament this year and travelling to Cleveland, OH, but with all of the hooplah surrounding the event this year, I will consider hosting/planning.

I need to gauge the interest level of having a tournament in MI, at the usual place, Fun 4 All Comics and games, in Ann Arbor. It still seems to be the most equitable place to have a tourney in terms of driving time/distance for the majority of people that usually come.

Please answer the poll question ASAP so I can make a decision.

Technically it is in Ypsilanti.

Hey would you guys be interested in coming down to Northern IN. In the South Bend Area. We need some more interest. It shouldn't be too far of a drive probably closer than cleveland at least. Just follow the link in my sig.

Re: NHSD in Michigan??
 
I'm definately in this year! But if no interest in shown, I understand going to another event...maybe i could tag along....

Can always do one at blue dragon for those that do not wish to drive to the bigger Ohio event...

Re: NHSD in Michigan??
 
I just sent out an email. I will plan on doing this since I will be hunted down and killed if I don't (I wonder who that was, Ron).

Let's get as many people as possible to play. Hopefully there is enough time to convince those casual players we know to come out and play.

Re: NHSD in Michigan??
 
I'm in - along with my son. I'd definitely prefer a touney in MI, but I'd consider driving to OH if its no more than a couple of hours drive.

Re: NHSD in Michigan??
 
Ok. I will start planning this shindig. I will update the first post as details become more clear (like I already have).

Wow 800 points and 24 hex limit? Is there any clarification to that?

Sure. You can use up to 800 points and 24 hexes. More points allows more expesive figures. More expensive figures means more heroes and expensive common squads. This will hopefully lead to more HeroScape games as opposed to SquadScape games.

Plus I hope someone brings the four expensive dragons + Isamu. ;)
