Pokémon Let’s Play! FEB

Pokémon has always been one of the most popular games in our store because it does such a great job of appealing both to experienced players and brand new ones!

When: SUN, February 9th, 12:00pm – 4:00pm

Format: Let’s Play is a unique format because it’s a bit of everything. There will be pick-up games, as well as introductory games for anyone that is new to the game – we will have an official Pokémon Professor on hand! We may decide to run a quick tournament if there is interest. This event is for all ages.

Entry Fee: FREE! If we decide to run a spur of the moment tourney there would be a possible entry fee for that, but it would be low and participation in it isn’t required.

Prizes: Even though it’s a free event we will always have some cool give-aways for participants. Be sure to register as a participant if you’d like a crack at some fun Pokémon door prizes!

The tournament will consist of 3 rounds, with 2.25 hours allotted for each round. Roll for turn 7 as normal. Chess clocks will be used (and supplied by the store). Each player will have 65 minutes on their clock at the start of each game. If you time out there will be no penalty points taken, but you cannot make any orders for the remainder of the game. Lists can be a maximum of 2300 Points. Armies from the main third edition rulebook and Uncharted Empires book may be used. Historical armies ARE NOT allowed. Army lists can be sent in early for review to alexander.kus@gmail.com.

Unfortunately, Easy Army has not been updated, please use Good Army, https://www.goodarmylists.com/kow, to put together your army list. You should bring 4 copies of your list (one for yourself, one for each opponent). This is an open list event.

Models/Paint: You are NOT required to have a painted army, but tournament points will awarded for paint and they will count towards your overall score and will be scored as follows.

10 – Three colour minimum on all models/units, no primer nor metal/plastic/resin showing, bases are painted and/or flocked, minimum model count or equivalent volume for all units
5 – 50% or more of the army is painted and based to the above standard
0 – Less than 50% of the army is painted and based to the above standard

Sportsmanship: This will be scored on a Pass/Fail system. Everyone starts with 10 Sportsmanship points. For each “Fail” you receive, 2 points will be deducted from your Sportsmanship score. If you Fail someone, please be prepared to explain your reasoning to the TO in detail. We are all here to have a good time.

Terrain: All tables will be set up prior to each round and will be the same for each round, for the whole field.

All tables will consist of:
2 hills, 2 forest, 2 blocking terrain, 1 difficult, 1 difficult flat, 2 walls. Terrain Height is predetermined:

Forests – Ht 9
Blocking terrain – Ht 6
Hills – Ht 3
Walls – Ht 2 obstacle
Difficult – Ht 1
Difficult flat – Ht 0

Scoring: We will be using the Blackjack Scoring System, scoring sheets will be provided on the day of the tournament.

The sheets are very easy to read and fill out once you see them, you won’t need to read over how it works if you don’t want to. I will review them with the group before starting.

Prizes: We will put $20 (minus the cost of the pizza) towards a prize pool, which will be in the form of Store Credit. The top players will split this prize pool based on how well they do!
