**RANDOMIZER**: 

– All lists will be built with the Random List Generator:  http://www.infinityutilities.de/randomlistgenerator

– To ensure that no-one randomizes repeatedly until a perfect list comes up, Spud will generate the lists for all participants. Either poke Spud Spudlington on Facebook or e-mail him at captainspud@gmail.com, specifying the faction or sectorial you’d like to use, and he’ll reply back with four army lists for you to choose from. Pick the two that seem most playable or that best align to your collection, and use those at the event.

– You may rearrange the combat groups of the lists you receive, as long as all of the same units and profiles are retained.

-Soldiers of Fortune **ARE** allowed
-Spec Ops **ARE NOT** allowed

Prizes:
-Store credit prizes for top-placing players. The amount of the prizes will vary depending on the number of attendees.
-All attendees will receive a custom-made NEOCANADA 2020: YEAR OF THE INDIGNANT HONKBIRD patch (if they don’t have one yet).

Be sure to register on the ITS site at this link: https://its.infinitythegame.com/event/0428506eb-300pt-special-format-its-event-randomizer

All players are responsible for bringing their own models, dice, tokens, measuring devices, classified decks, and printed army lists.

I look forward to seeing everyone out on February 16th! 🙂

Entry Fee: $20.00 -or- 6 Hero’s Rewards
All participants Get: a Hero’s Reward & Pizza Lunch

Tournament Guidelines:
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!

WPNQ PRELIMINARY (PIONEER)

In order to earn a coveted invite to the Player’s Tour there are a couple of paths one might take, but only one goes through your friendly local game stores: the WPN Qualifier (Or WPNQ), and Black Knight Games is lucky enough to be one of the only shops in Ontario able to host one!

This time we will be hosting ours as an Invitational event, with four Preliminaries leading up to it – like this one – where the Top 8 players will earn their spots at our WPNQ Final!
