Under New Management ... sort of
The first round will consist of four preliminary games with players
matched by their records in swiss fashion. After the swiss portion,
all those with three or more wins will advance to Round 2 for
single elimination play.
The battles to be used will be determined by Memorial Day
weekend. You can write to the GM for that list then. They will
also be listed on a website to be determined. Some will be from
the rulebook, some will be newer scenarios from the game designer,
Each match will consist of a single game. While the GM will
strive to pick scenarios that are balanced, some may feel differently
about certain scenarios. If both players want to play the same
side, the following bidding procedure will be used. (This is
new.) Both players will roll all the battle dice. The player
who rolls the most cross-sabers will bid first; if the number
of cross-sabers is tied, re-roll until there is not a tie. What
you are bidding is the victory banners you will give your opponent
so that you can play the desired side. Zero is a valid bid. When
a player does not want to raise the bid, the bidding is over
and that player takes the other side and is given the number
of victory banners bid.
There will be a time limit of one hour per game. Games not
finished in one hour will be subject to adjudication.
