As of this morning, it looks like I'll likely be able to attend this event! :saber:

--500pt epic, baby! (this has always been my favorite format, so I might be a bit biased)
--300pt standard skirmish (it would be fun to see what people can design using those extra 100 points)
--regular 200pt
--200pts, using the format that they've used in Europe: each player brings 2 squads, you look at your opponent's two squads and then secretly decide which squad you'll play, then reveal the squad. There are lots of cool interactions and strategies involved here, and it gives a bit of variety over the course of the tournament. Another version is that you have a Light Side squad and a Dark Side squad, and you roll the dice: whoever wins the roll picks which squad he will play (ie, LS), and his opponent will play the opposite squad (ie, DS). That's a lot of fun too.

Small update we will have some Friday night mayhem (more details to follow) also we will be going with the 300 constructed format. I am loving the idea of what squads may come out for this. We may even see a huge piece come out as well

Good news, the Friday Night Follies are on at Chez Nader!

We'll be starting as people arrive in from work/out of town and go until sleep is required. If you're thinking of traveling in from out-o-town send me a PM, as there will most likely be more than enough room to flop at Chez Nader.
