These events are going to take place during Gencon Indy 2012, hence the title of the thread. So no, none of these tourneys are being held in New York. Remember, Google is your friend.

Order will be Matthias, Scaper Dude, Fomox, Lonewolf for the entire game. Matthias goes first with high roll, Scaper Dude goes second because he got the highest roll from his team. Next initiative round you just roll to see who goes first. If Fomox wins then it's Fomox, Lonewolf, Matthias, Scaper Dude. Same order just different person to start.
A suggestion. Our group does it this way:

Matthias and Fomox vs. Lonewolf and Scaper Dude. Matthias rolls a 20, Fomox a 16, LW a 1, Scaper Dude a 7. Matthias wins the initiative.

Matthias goes first. The opposing player that is sitting diagonally across from Matthias goes second. Then across the table to Matthias's teammate Fomox, then the player last player on the opposing team goes last (the player directly across from Fomox).

Second round, everyone rolls initiative again, adding in any bonuses due to glyphs, powers, etc. The winner of all four rolls would go first, the player sitting diagonally across goes second, etc....

The round always goes in an "X" fashion, zigzagging back and forth from round to round.

The turn order is very easy to remember and, since you have no idea who's going to win initiative, gets rid of any predictability in turn order.

Anyway, just a suggestion. Have fun at GenCon without me!
FWIW, I like Grishnak's way a little better, because it removes the effect that a specific opponent will be going before you 75% of the time all game long, and the other one will be going after you 75% of the time all game long. That can have a big effect on the game depending on the armies (for instance, if I'm playing cutters and Matthias is playing Q9, it's a big advantage for his team if he goes right after me 75% of the time).

Even his way is still not totally random, though. The only way for that would be if you just have the top init rollers from each team go first and second each turn.

I would think, with the 34 tickets you bought so you wouldn't have to play as many people...

Re: OFFICIAL Gen Con HeroScape Events 2012

Have the maps been selected yet?

Never mind, found them here.

On a related note, do we know what glyphs will be used yet?

Okay, never mind. Found them too, on the same thread no less.
It would be great for people like me looking for this info to have it added to the 2nd post of this thread.
Getting excited but wish I had some actual time to prepare for this one.
See you all there!

SEE YOU @ GEN CON 2014!

Re: OFFICIAL Gen Con HeroScape Events 2012

I have a question about the Assassin's Creed event. Assuming that you play a unit that can be transfered to other players, such as Sir Hawthorne, Ne-Gok-Sa, or Kee-Mo-Shi, what would be the ruling on that unit being transfered if it was the unit selected by the opponent as the target?

Re: OFFICIAL Gen Con HeroScape Events 2012

This was addressed 1 page back in this thread.

Temporary control does not equal a win.....permanent control does, ie mind shackle or Hawthorne.
