Age of Sigmar ITC Tournament

When: Saturday, December 2, 11:00am (Registration begins at 10am)

Entry Fee: $20.00 -or- 6 Hero’s Rewards -or- Bring a Christmas Gift for someone worth no more than $20.00

Lunch: A Pizza Lunch is included in your entry, including three slices, and either two pops/waters or one energy drink/juice.

Stronghold Members Get: a Hero’s Reward

Format: 1500pts, 3 Rounds, Two Hours per Round

Forces: Every army must follow an Allegience (which can be a Grand Alliance, like Chaos, or a more specific one, like Breyherd).  Forces are selected using the Matched Play rules (General’s Handbook 2017, p.70), following the ‘Battlehost’ guidelines and utilizing the Rules of One and other ‘Matched Play’ rules.

Scenarios: We will be using ITC scenarios TBD.

Event Scoring: We will be using the Best Coast Pairings app for scoring, so if you have it (or want to download it) you can do so to make reporting and tracking even easier – but you don’t need to have it as our organizers will.  Scoring follows the ITC scoring for each scenario.

Prizes: Rather than giving out prizes to everyone, we will have a holiday gift-giving prize-structure.  Each person either brings a Gift as their entry fee (and if they do it goes in to the gift pool), or if they paid in we will put in a good Age of Sigmar themed gift to the prize pool.  Everyone will end up with a prize – given out in a random order.  So, this is a more casual prize structure, with the only real reward for winning is your ITC points, and the pride of conquering your friends and foes!
