SWM needs to happen, and there is currently no tournament scheduled for May, so I've decided to organize one. I live in Ontario, so I'll call it the Ontario Regional. Creative name, eh?

ALL ARE WELCOME, regardless of geography!!! However, if you want to be taken seriously and actually stand a chance at victory, then you'll need to use a proper Canadian accent in your registration. Not just "I'm in," but rather, "I'm in, eh?"

Please indicate (with a proper Canadian accent, eh?) in this thread if you plan on playing.


Additional request - Have a Discord account! It is FREE! It is super handy! We can all chat in the main room between games. You can check out other people's games if you finish early (and hear them talk!) This is not required, but it is strongly encouraged!

Squads and map selections can be PMed to thereisnotry anytime after Wednesday, May 25 (I will PM a neutral party my squad before then and post in this thread when I have done so). Please send squad link, copy/paste of squad, map, and DISCORD NAME (with the # and 4 digits) {Discord name and # only necessary if you are not already a part of the SWM Discord group. We only need that info 1 time}

*Registration ENDS May 28 at 11:00 am US CENTRAL (noon Eastern)

*Round 1 begins promptly at noon US CENTRAL (1:00 p.m. Eastern)

{Please gather in Vassal and Discord by 10 minutes before the start time}


Gameplay in each round will last exactly 75 minutes. Each player is responsible for timing their own games. Players are expected to set up and be ready to start at a reasonably fast pace to keep the tournament moving.

Number of Swiss rounds depend on number of participants.
8 or fewer = 3 rounds, cut to top 2 (or just straight 4 rounds of Swiss, decided based on numbers)...or see below
9-16 = 4 rounds, cut to top 4
17-32 = 5 rounds (very optimistic here), cut to top 6; 1-2 have byes 3vs6 and 4vs5; lowest seed vs 1, highest seed vs 2

** If our numbers are low, we may simply elect to do a Round Robin, and perhaps with a Finals match. We'll talk about it as a group (with me as T.O. making the final decision) if this is the case.


-- Maplist
As always this year, we will be using the restricted map list for 2021-2022. All of the maps are available on Vassal, so make sure you have downloaded the newest updated version

Imperial Garrison
Asteroid Base
Cloud City
Gangster's Vault
Desert Marketplace
Imperial Checkpoint
Oceanic Facility
Royal Militia HQ

NOTE: Again, please make sure we all have the updated version in place and tested before the day of the tournament, so things run smoothly.


All legal characters up to and including Vset 23!! All Balance Committee rulings posted up to one week before this tourney (before May 21, 2022) will be in effect.

ALSO NOTE: Players will be responsible for knowing all errata, floor rules, etc. (Including the latest change to rigged detonators!) http://www.bloomilk.com/Forums/default.aspx?g=posts&t=31469)
Changes can be found here: http://www.bloomilk.com/Forums/default.aspx?g=posts&t=20395
and here: http://www.bloomilk.com/Forums/default.aspx?g=posts&t=28568

If questions come up in game, you may send a private message to me and I will attempt to resolve it.


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.)

Ok, so now we're down to 2.5 (Laura counts as .5 until she knows, either way). Are Saturdays just not ideal for most people?

BUMP: The event is THIS SATURDAY!

The time for signing up is drawing to a close. If you've been thinking about it but haven't made your decision yet...think harder! ThumbsUp

As per normal T.O. practice, I'll send my squad info to a neutral party on Thursday and post here when I do.

I'm the neutral party! I'm hosting a game of Twilight Imperium so I will not be playing with you all. Good luck to everyone. (I had to say that because... well, I'm a neutral party.)
