designer/developer will once again be hosting a dedicated gaming weekend
for fans of Breakout Normandy at the Days Hotel in
Timonium, MD on Nov. 10 through 12 as a wargaming alternative adjunct to
Euro Quest IV. Play is restricted to the first 32 pre-registrants.
Like the first
eight events, this one will be dedicated solely to the play of that game
in five Swiss rounds using a format similar to that used at WBC. You may
play in as many rounds as you like, but since there will be no other wargames
to lure you away, it is hoped most will compete in all five, win or lose. Indeed, last
year’s event generated more Breakout Normandy games played than the WBC
begins Friday at 6 pm, with late arrivals paired as they arrive thereafter.
Alternately, those unable to arrive Friday afternoon may substitute a game
played prior to that weekend either live or by email for the first round
provided both players are pre-registered and will attend. Second round
begins at 9 am on Saturday. The fifth and final round will be at 8 am on
will continue using the banked supply bidding system introduced in 1999.
Instead of bidding VPs for sides, all games will be played to 9.6 VC. Players
desiring the same side will, instead, auction bid the number of extra supplies
they will grant the Allied player at start for the privilige of playing the
Germans. The player bidding the highest gets the Germans; his opponent starts
the game with that many supplies banked in reserve which can be used ONLY to
buy extra impulses. A player wanting to play the Allies can bid negative supply
if necessary. If players desire opposite sides, they will play their preference
with no bid.
all players are expected to play in all five rounds, strength of schedule
(number of opponent’s wins) will be used as a tie breaker. WBC plaques will
be provided for first through sixth place.
