NorCal Event - Pod Draft

Hey all. It's about time I make this happen. I'm looking to run an event in early March. Ronin Games would be a good place to play.

Here's the format:

Pod Draft
Players will bring two Pods limited to 12 hexes and 235 to 250 pts each, with the additional restriction that those pods may not both contain the same unique squads or heroes. At the start of the match, players will roll a d20, and the high roller chooses who drafts first. The first player chooses either one of his pods, or one of his opponent's pods. The second player then chooses two pods from the remaining three, with the final pod going to the first player. If a player drafts two pods with the same unique figures, they must set the duplicate figure, or figures aside and cannot use them during the match. Figures will be placed on the map in the order that the pods are drafted.

Matches will be 50 minutes, and if both players still have units remaining after time, ties will be decided not by points remaining, but by points killed, to offset the potential of some players starting with fewer points. (Leaning to partial card scoring for this.)

So chip in with a date preference and any questions about the format, gents.

March 1st
March 8th
March 15th

Re: NorCal Event - Pod Draft

I'm in. Can't play the 8th, though - I'm running a netrunner tournament that day.

TL;DR: I put a lot of thought into my posts. Please read them before responding, even if they seem long. I try to make my posts useful and worth the time.

The Ides of March? Perhaps a good day for slaughter! I'm OK for any of the days, though.

Re: NorCal Event - Pod Draft

Alright, I'm fine with the 15th as the likely date. Kinda surprised CarnivalMan hasn't stopped by in this thread yet.

Re: NorCal Event - Pod Draft

In doing a preliminary design of my pods a question arose. I realize that it probably will not be an issue, but just in case: Is there a hex limit on the pods - either individually or collectively?

All my initial pod designs came in the 3- to 10-hex range, but one test pod (6 x Deathreavers) is 24-hexes all by itself.

Re: NorCal Event - Pod Draft

Good catch, cm. Yes, the limit is 12 hexes per pod. I'll update the OP.

Re: NorCal Event - Pod Draft

I'm good with settling on the 15th of March. I'll see if Ronin Games can accomodate.

This is why I need to check my calendar more often. I have a wedding on the 15th of March..... so I'm out that day.
