The Guards Counterattack!

ASL remains in a pre-con slot. A five-round Swiss tournament (two rounds each Saturday, Sunday, and one Monday starting at 9:00 AM and 4:00 PM) will determine the BPA Champion. Best record takes home the wood. Will JR Tracy repeat? Will another champion return to reclaim past glory? Will it be you? RECON 2006 means three days of ASL gunning free of distractions and schedule conflicts! Make plans to join us in our larger digs in Lancaster Host!

Registration information can be found at; Travel and accommodation information is located at New for 2006: All pre-cons are Free to Tribune-level BPA members.

RECON '06 will be conducted as a five-round swiss tournament. Players will be matched with opponents in each round by the tournament staff; places 1 through 6 will be determined by W/L record. Ties between players with the same number of wins will be broken based upon strength of schedule.

Tournament prizes provided by BPA will be supplemented by MMP.

Before pairing for each round, each player chooses which column he desires to play that round, A or B. To the extent feasible, pairings will be made with these choices in mind (although, after the first round a player must have a loss to elect Column B), but players should be prepared to play in column A if necessary (but may move to B even without a loss by mutual consent).

After pairings are determined for each round, each player secretly rank orders three of the five scenarios (1 to 3 in descending order of preference). Scenario choices are then compared and the common scenario with the lowest combined ranking is chosen.

* If only one scenario matches, play that scenario.
* If two or more scenarios match, play the scenario with the lowest total ranking.
* If there is a tied total rank among common scenarios, low dr gets choice of the two.

EXAMPLE: The round has scenarios, A, B, C, D and E. John chooses in order; 1-B, 2-E and 3-C. Jeff chooses in order; 1-A, 2-B and 3-E. In this case, scenarios A, C and D are not common choices. Scenario B is a common choice with a combined rank of 3 (John 1 + Jeff 2). Scenario E is a common choice with a combined rank of 5 (John 2 + Jeff 3). The scenario with the lowest combined rank is scenario B. If there is a tied combined rank, a dr is made with the player rolling lower receiving his choice of the two scenarios. Use A26.5 (or any mutually acceptable method) to determine sides.

Please note that even if your ASL set is not particularly travel-worthy, mapboards, overlays, and status markers (i.e., Prep Fire, DM, First/Final Fire, etc.) are always in high demand. MMC/SMC/SW/Guns/Vehicles are typically in ready supply. Please try and at least bring the necessary overlays and boards for the scenarios you expect you'll select in each round and your tray of status markers if possible.
