First I'd like to say "Thank You!" to all of you who gave me feedback when we first came up with the idea of this tournament. You guys ROCK!! This really is a great community, and I am proud to be a part of it. Unfortunately, I am unable to make it to Gencon this year, so we wanted to put together a tournament with a National/Regional tournament flavor, but in the off-season. That is why we decided to put together this tournament. It will give everyone a chance to build their best squads using R&R and BoT and run them in a more competitive environment. We wanted to make it far enough AFTER R&R and BoT came out that everyone had some time to develop some competitive squads, but not so far after that it started to run into the holiday season. I think that October is the perfect time. We also realize that many people (myself included) are excited about the upcoming EPIC DUOS set that is coming out. So we wanted to find a way to work that into this event. So, the plan is to run THREE tournaments on THREE consecutive days. Right now is planned for a Friday night, Saturday, and Sunday.

The first tournament (EPIC DUOS) is planned for Friday October 14th at 7pm. We will be doing this the same way it was done at GENCON. When you get there you will receive you EPIC randomly. You will then need to add one more figure not to exceed a squad build of 200pts. The games should be able to be played fast enough that we can finish the whole tournament in 4 hours. The goal right now is to have a complete set of EPIC DUOS customs to give away as part of the prize support, depending on turnout of course.

The second tournament (200pt constructed) will begin on Saturday October 15th at 11am. The winner of this tournament will be considered to be the WAMPA Stompa Champion! Depending on how many show, we plan on giving away a complete set of R&R customs and possibly a complete set of BoT customs.

The third tournament will be a 300pt EPIC Fantastic Four. Your squad must contain exactly one (1) EPIC figure and three (3) other figures not to exceed 300 pts. There will also be other customs (R&R, BoT, and/or EPICs) to given away at this tournament.

Hmmm, 10 hours from Atlanta. We'll have to think on this.

Echo and Weeks also mentioned being interested in this when I asked about it a few weeks back. Hopefully you guys can make it up here.

Psh, we can totally do 10 hours. :P

Seriously, I really want to go to this, so hopefully there will be at least a few Atlanta players there.

Of course it depends on my current situation, but I will plan on coming to this. I can wear my black polo so, even if the Atlanta boys can't make it, it will look like they did.

12.5 hours from Chicago. Love to - but that might be a stretch.

Go nuts and do Fri, Sat AND Sun! In fact, run like 5 tournaments and make it a mini GenCon.

I can't speak for anyone else, but the more events - the greater chance I would make the trip. Sorta the whole gaming time needs to be greater than travel time equation.

I agree. Honestly, October is such a bad month for me (with Midterms and conference papers and so forth) that it would be hard for me to make the trip even if it were an all-weekend event. But an all-weekend event would make me more likely to see if Priceline wants to make me an offer I can't refuse.

Part of me wonders, Tim, if maybe the solution isn't just to create a Fall or Winter mini-Gencon somewhere in the Midwest or Upper Midwest for the IL/MI/WI/MO/etc folks for whom Virginia might be a bit too much of a haul.

If there is enough interest, I can always add another tournament on Sunday.

Only 7 & 1/2 from WNY. You may see some of us head down as well for this one.

Ok, just here to make an update. I have commissioned a professional artist to make a picture of Darth Bane when he has his orbalisks as prize support. If your interested in seeing some of his work, here's his website:

http://www.brentwoodside.com

The level of detail of the Bane picture will be on par with that of the picture "Roll Initiative" if you can find that on the web site. He has done a lot of fantasy pictures for D&D, but he is very familiar with Star Wars. I will be posting updates of the picture as it progresses so everyone can see how its turning out. Cheers!

Sincerely,
Jester007

Capitalizing 'HE'? I think I've just been insulted.

Hey guys, do you have any broad ballpark ideas of the timeframe on Saturday? Ie, would we be finished around 4:00, or around 7:00 or around 10:00? I'm at this point planning to come (maybe bringing some NJ guys with me?), but I need to make some plans before I'll be sure if I can make it.

We are aimming for a start time of 11 AM. Expect there to be 4-5 rounds of swiss and the championship rounds. This should put the end time around 8 PM. Right now, we're expecting 20-25 people to show up.

We're still discussing ideas for a format for Sunday's tournament. One idea is a 300 point Epic Fantastic Four. Another is an R&R Sealed. We may even do both depending on how many people stick around on Sunday. We'll keep you all informed as time goes on.

Sincerely,
Jester007

Ok, cool. Thanks very much! I'm 98.4% sure that I won't be able to stay for Sunday, but I'm pretty sure that I'll be there for Friday and Saturday.

However, the 300pt Epic Fantastic Four idea sounds really cool!
