Western NY Heroscape Club February Meet Up
 
Western NY Heroscape Club February Meet Up

What:
Free-for-All Heroscape!

Where:
Causal Dragon Games
136 Walnut St, Lockport, NY 14094

When:
Sunday February 17th, 2019
1:00 PM

I had a blast playing with @brandonwiker and friends last month, so I figured I’d hold another Heroscape outing to keep the momentum going.

This month I want to do free-for-all matches with drafted units. Below is a list of units I will be bringing to draft from. I will bring 2 large maps that can theoretically support 7 players each, meaning we can host a potential of 14 people. The sweet spot for these type of games is 4 to 5 players, but I will do anything to avoid 3 player games. If both maps are in use we will do a draft involving all players at once.

Reinforcements: Players will draft 500 point armies, starting with 12 starting spaces. You must place at least 240 points onto the board to start (use partial card scoring if necessary), with the rest of your army in reserve. In between rounds a player may place the entire remainder of their army in their starting zone if they desire. If a player’s entire initial army is destroyed then they must place the remainder of their army at the beginning of the following round.

Alliances are encouraged. These type of free-for-all games are defined by the careful diplomacy and making/breaking alliances at the proper time. Strong players will get ganged up on, and games will come down to the wire more often. That’s why I love this format.

I will be using some cherry picked Competitive Unit Congress units. The complete list of CUC units can be found here:

3 sets of each Common unit and 2 of each Uncommon unit will be available, though once a unit has been picked they cannot be picked by anyone else.

@brandonwiker Any chance we can turn some Maybe's over to Yes's?

That is assuming the weather isn't too treacherous come Sunday.

Things went well-- It was just my wife and I but we had fun. Our first game I used Ne-Gok-Sa and Grok Riders: Ne-Gok-Sa took over not only Zelrig but Krug, crushing my wife's forces. My wife took some pics which I'll hopefully post eventually.

Should I go ahead and schedule another day next month? Do you think there would be interest? I was thinking of doing a draft pool of only the units from Wave 2 and Orm's Return backward, to recreate the good old days of Heroscape.
