Inexperienced players welcome. The game will be taught to anyone present at the scheduled starting time. GMs may also schedule a demonstration for the Event. Coached events generally require more time and effort to run and can be upsetting to more experienced players impatient with delays. Announce at the outset, that all players are expected to abide by the C rating and help newcomers.

2019 Tournament Format
In Space Base, players assume the roles of Commodores of a small fleet of ships. Ships begin docked at their stations and are then deployed to sectors as new ships are commissioned under your command. Use cargo vessels to engage in trade and commerce; mining vessels to build recurring base income; and carriers to spread your influence. Establish new colonies for a new Commodore in a sector to gain even more influence. Gain enough influence and you can be promoted to Admiral and go off to rule the Galaxy from beyond the grave!!
The tournament will consist of two preliminary heats. In each heat players will play at tables of 4 or 5 players, depending the number of entrants, Each table will then play two games, the second game to immediately follow the first, winners of each game will advance to the next round of the Tournament. If a player only plays in the first game of a heat, they will not be eligible to advance to the next round of the Tournament.
Semifinal and final will consist of single elimination games of tables of 4 or 5 players.
