You sank my battleship ...

Come join us for the Naval War tournament. This fast and furious multi-player game combines the luck of the draw, skill at bluff and bluster, and a not-always-obvious requirement to really stop and think before playing that next card - if you want to win.

Single Elimination games of 5- to 9-players. Two rounds to wood. Six winners will advance to the Final. If less than six winners are present, enough runners-up with the most points will advance. If tied, the tied qualifier will be decided by dice roll.

A few important notes:

1) No optional rules will be used.
2) When you conduct a destroyer squadron attack, the roll that you make for that attack constitutes your entire turn.
3) Second (or lower) place finishers advancing to the Final will be determined by the difference between their score and the winning score at that table. Example - at your table, the winner had 77 points and you had 73. Your difference is 4. At another table, the winner had 89 and the second place finisher had 78. The difference there is 11. You would have priority in advancing to the Final. This system rewards people who come closest to winning their table rather than those who happen to be at a table that requires an extra hand or two to go over the top. If tied for the closest runner-up position, the tied player with the highest score would win.

I encourage everyone to join the tournament and bring friends. This is a fast, fun game which can be easily learned. If you know of anyone who enjoys this type of game, encourage them to show up for the demo even if they think they'll be busy when the tournament is actually run.

Jim Kramer will host a Juniors version for those 12 and under Tuesday at 11 AM in Vistas CD. See
