Re: What's your BAG, baby? Bay Area Gamers

I'm fortunate enough to have a regular gaming group, but I'm not getting in any scape these days ... partly my fault ... D&D and lots of eurogames. The holidays are tough, but come the new year I'd...

Re: Bay Area Brawl - NHSD '09

Ronin, thanks for the heads up. I'm a big maybe that time of year.

I've scouted Gamescape as a possible venue before. Unless they have something in the back their play area is pretty small. I'm...

Re: NORCAL FACTION 'n ACTION TOURNAMENT [?May/June/July?]

D!

I've been thinking about a faction based tourney for a bit, but you beat me too it. I gotta digest your concept and check with my social coordinator. I'm sure I'll have questions and proposed...

Re: NorCal New Year-New Army Tourney.

RV gave me all of the tourney sheets, but my dance card has been full since the tourney ... Tahoe Trip and then fire drills at work. I should find some time over the next week to crunch the numbers.

Re: NorCal New Year-New Army Tourney.

First come first served is great for matches that finish early, but I think we need to have a system for dealing with multiple people at one time going to the sideboard (e.g. after time is called). ...

Re: NorCal New Year-New Army Tourney.

I figured that was what wrecked my digestive track ... your weak attempts at sabotage will do you NO good MacDirk!

Damn MacDirk, always throwing a wrench in the works. You make some excellent points. I had to noodle on them for a bit. Logically they all made sense, but something in my gut was twisting.

Re: NorCal New Year-New Army Tourney.

That was exactly how I played the situation. The "ladder bridge" also seems to provide a height advantage over the starting zone. Ladders help stabilize single hex columns, so they have multiple...

Re: NorCal New Year-New Army Tourney.

I'll further explain my rational about tourney maps, it quite simple: a variety of balanced maps.

Balance is the first thing I look at since it is the most importance thing in a tourney map. ...

Re: NorCal New Year-New Army Tourney.

Re: NorCal New Year-New Army Tourney.

Opposite pages, but it doesn't matter. I looked at it a bit closer. With the scoring presented above, the first game point differential is 3 points between the winner and loser, regardless.
