We are on the calendar at Chicagoland Games (Dice Dojo). Same place we've had the Regional the last several years.

5550 N Broadway St Chicago, IL 60640

$15 Entry

Registration begins at 10am,
Registration ENDS at 10:45am

Rounds begin promptly at 11AM

Gameplay in each round will last exactly 1 hour. 10 minutes of set-up time will be given before the game clock begins each round (we will start the game clock when everyone is set and ready if it is before 10 minute set-up time is done).


Number of Swiss (initial) rounds depend on number of participants.
<8 = 3 rounds
9-16 = 4 rounds
17-32 = 5 rounds
33-64 = 6 rounds (very optimistic here)

For any number of participants above 8, cut to the top 4 and play 2 rounds of single elimination finals.
(Note: 2 rounds of finals WILL be played. If someone needs to leave early, they may give up their spot to bump everyone up and the next in line makes the top 4.)

Prize support will depend on number of entries. GenCon badge to 1st place (minimum 12 entries) + Store credit and other prizes to the top finishers. Draft prizes for all participants!

Short 30 minute break between rounds 3 and 4. We will get subs delivered, cost tba.

The whole event should be done by 7:30pm to give everyone plenty of time to get home. (Estimating 4 Swiss rounds)

This will be an official Star Wars™ Miniatures SWMGPA (Star Wars Miniatures Gamers Players Association) sacnctioned event. The SWM GPA Floor Rules will be in effect.
(The Star Wars Miniatures SWMGPA (Star Wars Miniatures Gamers Players Association) Floor Rules and the Star Wars Miniatures Game Rules should be read and understood by all players wishing to compete in sanctioned events. All SWMGPA members participating in SWMGPA-sanctioned Star Wars™ Miniatures events must abide by these rules.)

All rules can be found here: SWM GPA FLOOR RULES

Legal Map List will be:
Restricted List B (Tatooine)
-Rancor Pen (WotC)
-Jabba’s Palace (JC)
-Anchorhead (JC)
-Cantina (JC)
-Cliffside Citadel (JC)
-Simulation Deck (MoM)

Images of maps can be found here: OFFICIAL MAP LIST WITH IMAGES


ALSO -

Chicago TILE WARS Regional, the night before at Tim's place. Along with Friday night Follies!

Come out early and crash at my new pad! PM TimmerB123 for details.

More info to follow.

Looking to extend my tile wars regional championship. After winning 2 last year and then going to gen con and winning the tile wars championship, I'm stoked for this event on Friday night. Would love to get some royal rumble in on Friday night as well if time persists.

As far as Saturday goes. I'm calling dibs on this regional win. I placed 4th in 2010 at Chicago and have not faired well at the Chicago regional since then. I think it's time I deserve a Chicago regional win. So Tim and Jason, this message is for you.

Better send that message to Deri as well, the other former Chicago Regional Champion.

Just put together some trophies at Engineer's place that will be really awesome for the Chicago Regional. (great ideas and help from Brad, Jake and of course Eric). I dare say the Chicago Regional Champion 2013 will have the coolest regional trophy to date!

Main entry updated on how we will handle if anyone needs to leave before the final 4.

Friday night at Tim's (soon to be) new pad is ON!

TILE WARS Chicago Regional, and other gaming to our hearts content. The more the merrier. Everyone is welcome to stay at my place - PM me for details.

It's gonna be a blast - hope everyone can make it!

Sadly, Jason and I probably won't make it. We were on the fence, and some recent unanticipated expenses decided the issue for us.

I'm sorry to have to say it, as I was pushing hard for us to be able to go. However, as a lot of people are finding out lately, sometimes real life intervenes and takes your fun away. :cry:
