Empire of the Sun was released by GMT in April,
2005. The tournament will use the one-year tournament scenarios
supplied with the game. The GM will teach newcomers during the
first round although he will be doing double duty as GM of For
The People which runs parallel with this event so don't expect
miracles. Please catch the one hour demo before the event starts
if you're new to the game or want to brush up on the rules.
Rounds 1, 2, and 3 will use the single year scenarios with
bidding for sides (1942, 1943, 1944 respectively). Final round
will use the Campaign scenario with bidding for sides. The 2nd
edition rules (V3.0) will be used and are available for free
For the latest details on this game see members.tripod.com/~MarkHerman/index.html.
GMT will provide merchandise
certificates for the top three places. Both finalists will receive
a free copy of a recenty published Studiolo Design.
