This Challenge Series event is made up of two separate one day tournaments.
Saturday Daytime - 300 pt Spec Ops Tournament
This will be a full-blown competitive ITS tournament of four rounds. Missions to be confirmed but are likely to be either YAMS or tweaked ITS missions. Two lists will be allowed but they must be from the same vanilla faction or Sectorial.
Saturday Evening - Fun Stuff
Open gaming including board games, Infinihulk etc.
Sunday - 150pt Starter Pack Tourney
This will be a 150 point ITS tournament geared towards newer players. It will have several restrictions to even the playing field (a bit) and to leave out some of the more complex rules interactions.
Update - Download Links!
The general idea is that you can easily take part with a starter pack and maybe a blister or two, using a single list for all rounds.
*This includes all models with a full statline, so models with Ghost: Synchronised and Ghost: Servant count towards the total.
The tournament will start off split into two groups so that newer players get matched against newer players while experienced players get matched against experienced players in the first round. Match-ups will then be based of performance in earlier rounds.
Games will use a simple mission for all four rounds. A collaborative mission is currently being playtested.
Saturday 23rd November 2013, 9:30am through to about 10pm.
Sunday 24th November 2013, 9:30am through to about 5pm.
Tickets are now available!
The Exeter District Scouts' HQ in Marsh Barton, Exeter, Devon. The venue has free WIFI and a fully-fitted kitchen including free tea and coffee and is on the southern edge of Exeter, about ten minutes from the end of the M5.
I'm offering free floor space for around ten people on a first-come-first-served basis, in Dawlish which is a 20 minute drive from the venue. There will also be some floor space available in Newton Abbot, also about 20 minutes away.
Apart from free tea and coffee, no food or drink is included in the ticket. There is a McDonalds drive-thru and a Costa about 300m up the road, a big Sainsbury nearby (5m drive, 10-15m walk) and we usually make a joint pizza order for lunches each day and for Saturday evening dinner. You're also welcome to bring along packed lunches and use the kitchen to heat up food.
