Still hitting the beach six years
Can you survive hitting the beach at Omaha? This tournament
is a great place to have some fun while everyone tries to do
one better than Montgomery or Rommel. The Breakout Normandy tournament
format promotes play at all levels of player experience. We have
had approximately 50 players every year. You can stay for the
whole grognard six rounds of play, leave after the first round,
or even play a round and come back in later rounds (after you
have been shelled in another tournament). The key is to get people
playing and have fun. As long as you have some very minimal understanding
of the impulse play system, we can match you up with someone
with the skill level that you seek in the first round. The match-ups
for all the succeeding rounds are based on your record and what
Though winning it all had long eluded him, 1998 was definitely
Don Greenwood's year to dominate the Breakout Normandy scene.
Besides winning the 1998 AvalonCon tournament, he also won the
D-Day Tournament held in November after twice being turned away
in the final round of the '94 and '95 events. However the tournament
has proven a difficult event to master with many formidable players
in attendance and attrition taking its toll after the first loss.
Those who stick it out for all six rounds have the best chance
of finishing in the prizes. Hope to see you play a round.
