April 6 Western PA bi-monthly - Size Matters

Hey all,

It's again time for the Western PA bi-monthly tournament! Sorry for the late notice on this one. March flew by and April kind of snuck up on me, then April got busy. But here's the info!

Date: Saturday, April 6, 2013

Time: 1:00 PM to 6ish PM

11:30- Setup
12:30 - Registration
1:00-6:00 - Tournament Time!

Location:
Bell's Comics and Cards
25 Pine Grove Square
Grove City, PA 16127

Google Map to Location

Bell's is about an hour north of Pittsburgh or an hour east of Akron.

Format: 5 Round Swiss 45 minute game time limit.

C3V and SoV permitted. Marvel not permitted.

560 Point Size Matters (Armies must contain at least one card from at least 3 of Small, Medium, Large, and Huge sizes.)

Please check out the format options and give your feedback on which you'd like to do! I'm game for whichever.

Re: Western PA bi-monthly - April 6

If Iam able to make it Id be up for something like planetary wars. (although, might it be easier to make it generals wars?)

Heres a map idea. Its one Ive used for tournaments Ive hosted in the past. Its a fun map thats different from your normal 24 hex start zones. http://www.heroscapers.com/community...o=file&id=1605

In war, indeed, there is no substitute for victory. ~General MacArthur

Re: Western PA bi-monthly - April 6

I'll have to ask but I hope I can make it.

If so, I'll bring my latest The Hotways or the Highways map and maybe one more.

I also like any of the three. From most to least preferable:

Size Matters
Planet Wars
Interplanet Wars

General Wars is different from Planet Wars. For instance, in General Wars I can't have Drake and Isamu on the same team, but for Planet Wars I could. Or for Planet Wars I couldn't have Wolves of Badru with Werewolf Lord whereas in General Wars I could.

There is a difference, and General Wars is too common, so I like Planet Wars more.

We could also do 1v1v1 matches. The problem would be room, but I think if we wanted to mix it up a little. Go like 400pt armies and 3-player Kill-The-Person-To-The-Left. If you've never played kill the person to the left, it's a great game for those interested even if we don't use it at the tourney.

Tournament Record: 28-28: .500!

Sounds like fun. But soccer for the kids starts that week, so we are probably out. I guess I could hope for rain.

Re: Western PA bi-monthly - April 6

My brothers and I would definitely like to make it there again! We're a little busy in early April, but it shouldn't be a problem.

As for the format, I agree with heroscaper (Size Matters, Planet Wars, Interplanet Wars, in that order).

I might try to bring one of my own maps this time around.

Re: Western PA bi-monthly - April 6

I'm not sure I'll be able to make this or not, but I will certainly try.

Personally, I'm into the planet and interplanet options. I like to build armies around themes and factions, and size matters seems like it would end up pretty random with having to fit in a card of every size while still trying to hit the point total. Just my , I'll play whatever is decided if I can make it out.

Somewhat disagreed. I came up with the following army for 600pts for Size Matters:

190 Quahon (Huge)
390 Wyvern x2 (Large)
550 Spiders x4 (Small)
600 Marro Warriors (Medium)

I do see your point though, Size Matters may bring a few unthemed armies but as you can see it has the chance to bring so themed (and even competitive) armies too.

Here's another one:

240 Wolves of Badru x3 (Small)
380 Werewolf Lord (Huge)
455 Khosumet (Medium)
595 Morgoloth (Large)

And another*:

220 TKN (Huge)
280 Nagrubs x2 (Small)
410 Kee-Mo-Shi (Medium)
590 Vulcanmech Incendiborgs (Large)
600 Isamu (Medium)

*The Marro have many, many options for Size Matters as long as you have Hivelord/Nagrubs.

Ooh, and Nirek will love this one:

180 Omegacron (Large)
380 Omnicron S. x2 (Medium)
460 Omnicron R. x2 (Small)
600 Frost Giant of Morh (Huge)

~HS2010, thinking he should stop before he gives away too many armies.

Re: Western PA bi-monthly - April 6

No, please keep them coming! These ideas will get my brain warmed up.

What if I tell you kind of general directions I want to go and you give me all the possibilities? But you have to promise not to counter-build your army to squash mine.

I am kidding, but seriously if everyone else is down with Size Matters, I'm totally game for it... and this is all assuming I will be able to make it.

Re: Western PA bi-monthly - April 6

If people think Size Matters is too limiting, one idea is to make it so you only need to have 3 different sizes, not all 4.
