Cool Chicago South Suburbs

One of the problems with HeroScape is that in order to host an event, you need a large amount of space to have that event in. My home isn't big enough and I'm not a fan of paying large amounts (or even small amounts) of money to reserve a room. Local Game Stores don't mind people coming in and playing, but typically don't have the day-long availability necessary for a HeroScape event. Also the local stores want to sell product and HeroScape isn't an option for that any longer.

I recently reserved a room at the Mt. Greenwood branch of the Chicago Public Library to use for a day long gaming session. Nine players, myself and two friends, sons, nephews and a plus one, spent a happy day playing a Rolling Rumble style event. No brackets, you started a new game as soon as you and another pair were finished. We each got seven or eight games in. Not bad, when you consider that we started at 10 am and were out by 4 pm.

I said Rolling Rumble style event, because we differed from traditional events/tournaments because of the armies we played. Each player played armies from a pre-built pool of 350 point ClassicScape armies. You used a different army each game. You may win one game using Marcus, Me-Burq-Sa and Legionnaires, and then have to defeat them in your very next game. We had a total of seven maps, so you kept moving and rarely, if ever, played the same map twice.

I'm wondering what sort of interest there would be in opening this up to the HeroScape public. The boys are back to their colleges in the next week, so we wouldn't consider doing this again until the summer.

If you would be interested in attending an event like this, please respond by adding a comment. Thanks.

Cool Re: Chicago South Suburbs

And in case anyone was interested, here's how my day went.
(my army vs. opponent's army)
(result record)

Match 1 on Bandit Pass

Marcus, MBS, Romans vs Scarcarver and Warforged
Win (1-0)

Match 2 on Snow Strike (a new map I tested in this tournament, no picture available)
Dupuis, Zetacron, Knights vs Scarcarver and Warforged
Win (2-0)

Match 3 on Fire Isles

Siege and 10th Reg. vs Kreel, Drow and Zombies
Win (3-0)

Match 4 on Fulcrum

Scarcarver and Warforged vs Kreel, Chainfighters and Zombies
Win (4-0)

Match 5 on Swamp Thing

Brunak, Crixus and Drones vs Kaemon Awa, Kozukes and Archers
Loss (4-1)
*This is the second loss in less than a month to my friend, the ShogUn. Both losses came on Swamp Thing.

Match 6 on Broken Skyline

Shurrak, Dumutefs and Phantoms vs Kreel, Chainfighters and Zombies
Win (5-1)

Match 7 on Fire Isles- opponent was also 5-1

X17, Krav and WoA vs Hawthorne, Murphy and Death Knights
Win (6-1)

I had a great time playing today, and despite the fact that the guys I played against probably won't read this, I want to thank each of them for their contributions to making today happen and just for coming out to play. Thanks guys.

Re: Chicago South Suburbs

I have never played pre-built armies nor have I played Armies that small... It would be something different, but I also like to build my own armies (usually around the 500 to 600 pt range).
