Kings of War: Tournament JUN

Black Knight Games is very excited to be hosting another Kings of War tournament! 

When: Saturday, June 13th, 10:30am (Registration begins at 10am)

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 2.5 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 60 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 2,000 Points. Clash of Kings 2019 rules will be used. Armies from the main rulebook, Uncharted Empires book, and Twilight Kin lists may be used. New formations/units from Clash of Kings 2019. Historical armies are allowed. Army lists can be sent in early for review to alexander.kus@gmail.com.

I recommend using Easy Army KoW Army Builder to build your lists, which is available for free online HERE. If EasyArmy has not been updated with the 2019 rules by the week before, just make a spreadsheet version. 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 and no tournament points will be given for having a painted army, but there will still be a players choice best army award.

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.

At the end of Round 3, players will vote for their favorite opponent and second favorite opponent. Each vote for “Favourite Opponent” will add 2 points to their Sportsmanship score, and each vote for “Second Favourite opponent” will add 1 point to that player’s Sportsmanship score. The player with the highest Sportsmanship score will win the Sportsmanship award. In the event of a tie, the number of Favourite Opponent votes will be the tie-breaker, and the number of Second Favorite Opponent votes will be the second tie-breaker.

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, 2 difficult flat, 2 walls.Terrain Height is predetermined:

Forests – Ht 6
Blocking terrain – Ht 4
Hills – Ht 2
Walls – Ht 1 obstacle
Difficult flat – Ht 0

Ht 0 terrain only offers cover for units 50% inside of it. It does not give intervening cover.

Scoring:
We will be using the Blackjack Scoring System for this event. All of the information can be found here: http://clashofkingsau.com/blackjack/

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!
