8 on the 8th in Detail - FREE STUFF
OK, so I've posted about the fact that I'm doing this, but wanted to make it super clear so everyone has a free opportunity to join in.
On May 8 we're having an 8-person mini-event to stress test the mission and scoring format for the Open. As part of this, I've decided to open up the countrywide field and allow other people to participate by hosting their own 8 on the 8th. I will provide about $100 worth of stuff for this (eghads!) for anyone that does it properly. Here's what's required ...
1) 8 people + Organizer
2) Each person needs a 2k list - any amount of proxying/etc. allowed wherever you'll play is fine, this isn't a formal tournament, it's a mission stress test
3) 4 gaming tables (duh) with appropriate terrain (5-6 pieces/table, mission packet will explain how to use the terrain for each mission)
4) Camera, and basic typing skills / intelligence
5) Mission packets and scoring program (ms excel), which I will provide
What you have to do ...
1) Host an 8 person, 3 round tournament utilizing the primer missions and format for the Open; there will be no sportsmanship, painting, etc., just the missions and the scoring format to "stress test" the system
2) Host it on May 8
3) Talk to me obviously leading up to make sure all is in order
4) Communicate via a blog post for comments during the day as able to see how things are going
What I will provide ...
1) A "Best" and "Worst" humorous pair of trophies, shipped to you the organizer's door
2) One free pass to the NOVA Open, for the winner of your 8 on the 8th
I'm not going to have more than about 4 other people doing this, to keep personal expenses manageable - comment here and contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) to set this up formally
