Live like a king upon the seas - or visit Davey Jones' Locker!

That's right maties! The seven seas are fraught with gold and Spanish doubloons. But there's lots 'o' danger in them there waters ta boot. Come join us for high adventure and a boatload 'o' prizes in the NEW Blackbeard Tournament. What do we mean by "NEW", you might ask.

The keyword is FUN! There'll be sights and sounds the likes of which have never been seen at AvalonCon: Over a half dozen fools dressed in full pirate regalia calling themselves game masters. Sounds of the sea and pirate style ditties echoing throughout the hall. Large flags of the Jolly Roger waving throughout the area. All of this is new to both Blackbeard AND the convention at large.

In addition, we're instituting a brand new tournament format this year that enables each player to compete as long as he/she likes, utilizing the Swiss style format. Winner will be determined by accumulated score over as many of the three rounds as desired. What this means is that if you run into trouble in one round (or simply can't make it), no big deal, see you in the next round! This year, you don't leave the Blackbeard Tourney unless you WANT to.

Finally, my crew and I are providing a boatload of extra prizes (in addition to the standard convention prizes) including the "Blackbeard 99" tee shirt. We'll be giving away over a dozen of 'em!

THIS is what we mean by the "NEW" Blackbeard Tournament!
