Re: Colorado NHSD

That's why it's optional.

Points, points... 505?

Really excited to put this format into practice.

Part of the fun of the format is that your armies don't have to be that good for you to do well, although you'll spend most of the day picking from your opponent's armies.

However, if you want to field armies from stuff you don't have, just let me know (via PM if you like) and I will bring the figures you need.

All the early October Saturdays look clear at the moment.

Works for me. With the number of C-Springs folk we have coming these days, it makes sense.

I try not to get into specific point totals, but 505 is fine by me.

Interesting thought. You could put in a "finish this round and play 1 more round" cap when there are only 2-3 games left.

Last year, we did a rolling rumble, but (a) we were a little more careful to make sure that the winning players actually waited around to play other winning players instead of playing people with losing records, and (b) we put together a semis and finals game as the time started to wind down. So that's an option, too.

Works for me.

Re: Colorado NHSD

Pretty much any Saturday works for me. And I can provide a Fortress for the board if we need an extra one.

Re: Colorado NHSD

Could we possibly up the point total to 510?

All right, I'll change it this once, 'cause you're new. Don't anyone else even think about asking.

We'll plan on the 13th until someone objects.

I'm not taking opinions on C3V (), but what about Marvel? I know I'm against it and Daniel is for it, so I'll do whatever the majority wants.

Re: Colorado NHSD

After this year's Gencon, I've soured considerably on Marvel. But our tradition around here is usually to allow it.

With this format, you can't really be screwed by not being ready for a Marvel figure, so it's less of an issue. Maybe say that you can't put Marvel in both of your armies?

Re: Colorado NHSD 2012

I'm against the Marvel characters being used in a tourney, but that's just me.

And 13th works great for me. What time to what time?

We usually start setup at 10:00. If we play 5 rounds+semis+final, the tournament should be over somewhere in the vicinity of 4:00*, at which point it would be free play/leave whenever you want.

*Okay, that's a total guess.

As I say in the OP, everyone is encouraged to bring something for the prize pool, but nothing is required. If your collection lacks any spare figures/terrain, then just come and play!

Edit: If you want (for some odd reason) to bring an "entry fee" and throw it into the prize pool, be my guest.

I think the way prizes will work, if there are enough of them, is the winner will pick (roughly) half of them, 2nd will pick half of what's left, and 3rd will get the rest; but that's not finalized.
