Welcome to the 25th Anniversary of Atlantic Storm!
The 2023 event will be four heats with winners of each heat game advancing to the Semifinal round. There will be no alternates/2nd place advancers. Up to 36 heat winners will advance to six 6-player semifinal games. If there are more than 36 winners present for the Semi the following tie-breakers will be utilized:
- Most Wins
- Total Convoy Points Earned In All Heats
- Total Spoil Points Earned In All Heats
Seating will be random using the world famous “Coussis Method” with as needed adjustments for teammates, family etc. The goal for player balance is 5 player tables however based on player count breaks we may have some 6 player tables.
The default will be the original Avalon Hill edition. Upon signing in advise the GM if you’d like to play Pacific Typhoon or the Admiral Edition of Atlantic Storm and we will do our best to accommodate a table of “like minded” players. Also, if all players at a table agree to play a specific version, you're welcome to play that version. However, it must be unanimous otherwise, default back to the original AH Version.
Atlantic Storm Original: Games will be played using all advanced multiplayer rules.
Pacific Typhoon games will be the standard game. The Chronological, Short, or Team variants that are in the rule book are NOT to be used.
In the Admiral Edition will use a 40-card convoy deck by removing 12 convoys before starting which will be revealed prior to shuffling. (This aims to keep the tie-breaker and length of game consistent)
Pay particular attention to the rule regarding sharing of spoils in all versions.
The final round will be played with the original version of Atlantic Storm.
I will be playing in the event and Assistant GM's will be announced at the start of each round.
