Saturday, October 20th -

SCRAMBLE-CON 2.0!!!

Since we are having to scramble to make the tournament work, we're going to continue with that theme and

THROW SOME RANDOM CRAP TOGETHER AS A SQUAD!

This will be a TIER 2 (or lower) tournament.

What does that mean?

It's always been nebulous and subjective - so I'll define strict, easy parameters. It will simply be banned figures. (See next post)



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

$10 Entry

Registration begins at 11am,
Registration ENDS at 11:45am

Rounds begin promptly at Noon

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.
6-8 = 3 rounds
9-16 = 4 rounds
17-32 = 5 rounds (very optimistic here)

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

8 or less entries we will collectively figure out what the best way to proceed is. Less than 6, we will likely do a "round robin" (everyone plays everyone) as opposed to Swiss format.

Prize support will depend on number of entries. 100% will go toward store credit.

Short 30 minute break for food at some point

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

Legal Map List will be:
Criminal Underworlds

1. Jabba's Palace
2. Crime Lord's Palace
3. Gangster's Vault
4. Cantina

This list was made based on objective as well as subjective decisions - related to gameplay power level, NPE possibilities, and frequency of use.

Full disclosure: I literally quickly scanned each faction and wrote down the names of figures either I personally, or several others have expressed not wanting to see in a tournament any more.

There will surely be figures on this list that people think "shouldn't be there". Oh well, too bad. I'm more concerned about what might be missing. I will leave the list as "incomplete" for the next 3 days, in which time people can suggest additions (I surely could have overlooked characters). I will agree and add it or disagree and leave it off. However, I will say that if a figure is suggested, and I leave it legal - I will not PERSONALLY play any of those figures - as to prevent any thoughts of shenanigans. (Barring something ridiculous like posting a page full of figures - then I would just ignore the whole list).

Nothing will be removed from this list, but there may yet be a few more additions.

I will lock the list on Monday night.

The following figures are banned for this tournament.

And if it's not already clear, the goal is to simply have fun and do something different.

I hope everyone enjoys the squad building challenge

I wonder if there's a good swarm squad out there, since most of the strafers are gone, and some of the disruptive. Ewoks?

I bought extra of the brand new restricted list map. Royal militia HQ.

I'll be selling them at cost to anyone who needs one.
