2014 Chicago Regional - June 7th

We are on the calendar at Chicagoland Games (Dice Dojo). Same place we've had the Regional the last several years.

5550 N Broadway St Chicago, IL 60640

$15 Entry

Registration begins at 10am,
Registration ENDS at 10:45am

Rounds begin promptly at 11AM

Gameplay in each round will last exactly 1 hour. 10 minutes of set-up time will be given before the game clock begins each round (we will start the game clock when everyone is set and ready if it is before 10 minute set-up time is done).

Number of Swiss (initial) rounds depend on number of participants.
<8 = 3 rounds
9-16 = 4 rounds
17-32 = 5 rounds
33-64 = 6 rounds (very optimistic here)

For any number of participants above 8, cut to the top 4 and play 2 rounds of single elimination finals.

Prize support will depend on number of entries. GenCon badge to 1st place (minimum 12 entries) + Store credit and other prizes to the top finishers. Draft prizes for all participants!

Short 30 minute break between rounds 3 and 4. We will get subs delivered, cost tba.

The whole event should be done by 7:30pm to give everyone plenty of time to get home. (Estimating 4 Swiss rounds)

This will be an official Star Wars™ Miniatures SWMGPA (Star Wars Miniatures Gamers Players Association) sacnctioned event. The SWM GPA Floor Rules will be in effect.
(The Star Wars Miniatures SWMGPA (Star Wars Miniatures Gamers Players Association) Floor Rules and the Star Wars Miniatures Game Rules should be read and understood by all players wishing to compete in sanctioned events. All SWMGPA members participating in SWMGPA-sanctioned Star Wars™ Miniatures events must abide by these rules.)


All rules can be found here: http://swmresources.com/downloads/SWMFLR2013.pdf

how many people show up to these? Me and 2 of my buddies were thinking of going, but I don't know what we are getting into. Any info on the player output or entry fees would be appreciated. THanks

However that turn out was very low. I would definitely anticipate a higher turnout this year.

And I can't speak for last year because I didn't attend, but in years past pretty much all players got a prize. I think SWM is one of the few games that try and give out prizes to all competitors because all of us have been to tournaments for different games where 1st place got a super awesome prize and second place got a kick in the pants.

And I also plan to be there and I assume Laura will be as well.

Only 13,740 points to fly SW from BUF to MDW.... It might be in the cards for a return visit depending on schedule.

Such is my luck, I have a prior obligation on that date. Mad

There is a small chance that I may get a reprieve, but I won't know until mid-May.

I'd would like to say that, if I'm able to attend you'll be 'sleeping' under the table, but it is never wise to underestimate an opponent one has not faced (or got 'faced with) before. Razz
