now the champ is the GM too ...
Nobody can beat the Dolan boys in the ring so we put the fox
in charge of the henhouse. Beat 'em if you can. As usual, the
event will be Single Elimination in multiple, continuous rounds,
each round lasting as long as it takes to "KO" the
opponent (typically 30 to 40 minutes). The tournament will be
held in the classic style that Charlie devised for the first
Wrasslin' tourney at the first "DonCon", whereby
each participant acts as the Personal Manager for a "stable"
of three Wrasslers. Before the first round each contestant (that
is to say, "manager") will select his three wrasslers
from a list that rates each wrassler according to his/her strengths
and weaknesses. Each manager must maintain his or her personal
"stable" of wrasslers throughout the tounament. If
all three of your wrasslers take a fall before all of your opponents'
do, you're out!
Before each round you have the right to demand the identity of
your opponent's three wrasslers, but not the order in which they
will appear. Before each round you may secretly arrange your
three wrasslers so that your opponent does not know the order
of their appearance (however, once the round is underway the
wrasslers' order of appearance may not be altered).
Wrasslin' rule 11.33 ("Double Disqualification")
is not in effect during this tournament.
The official old AH FAQ and Errata list will be in use:
3.13/9.41 Can a penalized wrestler still be considered
a "mobile tag team partner" while being penalized by
the referee? A. No
5.4A If the defender attempts to negate a hold with
a green card which is itself voided by an attacker's green card,
can the defender then continue to play a red card in reaction
to affect the original attacker's hold? A. Yes
8.4 May the defender play a Power Surge with no effect
in response to an opponent's hold simply to get the card out
of his hand? Does a Power Surge played during a wrestler's own
turn on the offense last through the remainder of his turn on
the defense? A. Yes. No, but a wrrestler may play one
Power Surge on offense and another on defense. His "turn"
ends when he draws new cards.
9.42 If a penalized wrestler chooses to ignore a Referee
warning, must he state his intention to do so before the next
player takes his turn? Could a distraction to the second referee
void the automatic disqualification? A. No. He states
it when his turn arrives again, although he would have already
forfeited his ability to draw in the penalized turn. If he draws
anyway, that would be a statement of his intention to ignore
the warning. Yes.
11.3 If a voluntary exit with an Out-of-Ring card is
reversed, does the opposing wrestler leave the ring? A.
No. A Reversal can prevent a voluntary exit but it results in
the opponent being thrown out of the ring with damage only when
it is applied as a hold - not as a voluntary exit.
11.31 Once two wrestlers are both out of the ring,
can either wrestler play an Out-of-Ring card as a Hold? A.
Yes - and it applies just as much damage as if the wrestler was
being thrown out of the ring.
11.32 If a wrestler skips his turn to re-enter the ring,
does he still fill his hand? A. No.
11.4 Does a wrestler whose specialty requires "Strength
> Opponent's Strength; Agility 1" really need only Agility
of 1 without being stronger than his opponent? A. No;
he needs both an Agility of 1 AND strength greater than his opponent's.
11.4 When Hot Cocoa uses his Combination Specialty,
can his opponent reverse the normal holds played with that Combination?
11.4 If the Champ uses his Specialty to remove damage
while pinned and thereby increases his strength to that of the
attacker, does he break the pin even if he does not remove all
of the damage? A. Yes.
11.4 May the Grandmaster use a Specialty as any blue
card, including a blue/green Interference card? A. Yes.
He has a manager.
11.4 If the Garbage Man plays the Green Spew, may the
defender fill his hand during the missed turns? A. No.
He must wait until the end of the third missed turn.
11.41 May the Champ remove three Damage cards with
his Specialty even if his Recovery rating has been reduced to
1? A. No, he may use his Specialty to remove one more
Damage card than his present Recovery rating.
11.5 What happens when a card is played on an opponent
illegally (due to that wrestler not having the ability to play
that card) which is discovered by the opponent before he turns
the play into a legal move by playing another card? A.
The misplayed card MUST be returned to the player's hand and
his turn ended. He may neither play another card or discard.
In essence, he has lost the remainder of his turn. If he has
already drawn a replacement card for the illegal play, he must
return that replacement card to the middle of the deck.
