European Champs 11.-13.8.2017 - Tournament

Hi Everyone,

time is slowly coming, so itś time to bring you some news.

Date: 11.-13.8.2017
Location: Prague, Czech republic
Gameroom/gameshop Černý rytíř
Za Poříčskou branou 21,186 00 Praha 8
Gameroom is in the yard, so you have to go trough building first!

It´s pretty close to subway station Florenc (3 mins by walk), bus central station Florenc (5 minutes by walk - might be interesting for Slovak guys to come by bus)or train station (15 minutes by walk)

Confirmed players:
Matob (CZ)
Murphy (CZ)
Marcel (CZ)
Martin J. (CZ)
Slávek (CZ)
Viking Hyky (CZ)
Shinshek (IT)
Bakterius (SVK)
Peter (SVK , but from Prague Smile
Pete (UK)
Dwayne (USA)
Joost
Hanes (CZ - only OE player, but maybe..)
Mila (Fr + maybe Sat)
Karel (Su maybe)

Tournaments:
Friday 11.8.:
from 16-17 till closing hours (20.30)
Open gaming (OE and RE)
for newbies and interested Gladiator (2 minis, half map) small tournament (can donate some small prices) - main goal is show newbie game mechanics
Chat, beer of five, food and chill

OE:Mila, Slavek, Honza, Pete, Peter
plus presentation of home made battle maps (plastic + wooden)! Don´t miss!
200 pts arenaPete

Saturday 12.8.
10.00 200 pts tournament - 10 activations, map rotation

Confirmed:
Jungle Temple
Dwarven Outpost
Fallen Fortres
Fane of Drow
Tomb of Queen Peregrin

Woul like to hear if we can put enough maps together and what other 2-3 pieces should be

Number of rounds: depends on attendance, but 4-6

After it we can have another small tournament or some kind of draft (would like to hear your opinion again, my favourite is gladiator or some small fast format like 5 activations - 100 points or team battles)

Sunday 13.8.
200 pts tournament final (best 8 - 4, depends on previous day)
500 pts tournament (5 actiavtions, half map) for the rest - yep. I like fast boomboom games Smile

Prices:
all kind of prices are welcome plus offcourse have some prepared for you too
Very special prices for winners!!

Start fees:
would like to hear your voice, if you want "free tournament" or pay some extras to get some more valuable prices, my idea was around 300 CZK for weekend (11 EUR)

Waiting for your feedback, guys.
Thanks!

Martin

200/5 Arena is going to be one of the core supported formats.
Is anyone interested in this?

Very good layout of tournaments. Possibly could do a 200/5 on the Friday? Arena rules.

I like your map selection - any votes for temple of unseeing eye (IIRC - name eludes me)?

Matob Matobsen

3 local guys asked to play 1.0 version on Friday night, so seems like theres some interest in this format.
Gladiator on Friday night is meant to give chance to newbies and rare players, couas eitś easy to learn some basic mechanics and tell them about game plus they can try themeselves.
I am not against 200 pts arena at all, so wil edit main thread.

Heh, I am afraid I am only one from local guys with Temple of Unseeing map, and have onyl one copy, so it might be serious problem..

Out of town at the moment, but I think I can supply that map.
I found my cache of maps, if my old brain is remembering correctly.

Allright,

so some more ideas bout maps?
1-2 are stil missing plus we can roll for random map from rotation for last stages on Sunday (or we can pre-set map, but I´d better randomize it not to prepare army for some specific map).

BTW: I love King´s Road, but the same problem with lack of maps locally. The same with Market Square.. but as I wrote - preparing things for you, guys, so would like to hear YOUR voices!

I'll make an inventory of my maps and post them later.

I'll happily play some OE - think I have the rules somewhere. Sadly I have given away my templates from the first version of OE, otherwise that would have been a nice ride down memory lane.

Just built my first OE band for a while... fun

Seems like Gladiator is very interesting option for some local guys who don´t want to take part in main events.

But expected to hear more voices (Lars, Joost, Dwayne, Miro) about maps or other things.. trying to make tournament for you mainly

I will be going through the closet this weekend, and expect to have news about many things, including the missing critical market square map.

It is also likely I can bring maps of jungle temple and/or the dwarven outpost, but would need to leave with the players as I am unlikely to be able to take them back with me. I do believe I can bring a dozen of the temple of the unseeing.

Excuse my absence from this tread and any communications. Changed jobs (not quite voluntarily) and that involved a lot of other stuff as well.
I am however quite certain to attend (barring any illness or other personal stuff). Hope we have some form of wi-fi in the game-room?

Maps: I do have one copy of each of
Jungle Temple
Dwarven Outpost
Fallen Fortres

I don't, however, have a copy of Temple of the Unseeing Eye.
Have several other maps as well and some of the starter maps I do have more than one copy of. Might put those up once I've counted/checked them.
And I received, I guess from Dwayne (it came without a note from France), something really cool for you all. Wink

I won't mind an entrance fee, that sounds fair and I'll be sure to bring some prices and stuff as well as the cube for drafting purposes.

Edited maps for final selection - there are 7 maps so let´s see what we can put together.

I´ll check my maps during weekend!

Hey guys, sorry for my long silence, but RL is a bit messy (mostly because of a frustrating job hunt)

At the moment is't rather unlikely for me to make it, I'll keep trying though, want to defend my title after all Smile

Laurian

I really want to come, but I am having some health problems in the last months, so I am not 100% sure that I can.

Is there a Hotel / Accomadation where most of the players stay?

Martin - Thank you very much for the preparation!

Matob Matobsen

Heh, not good news..
But hope things will be better soon for both of you, guys!

Guys, I can bring fallen fortress, both dwarven maps and the jungle map in reasonable quantities.

I should also have enough of the temple of the unseeing, but finding it has been elusive....

Hi Guys,

some news:
as for the maps: Dwayne, which is second Dwarf map, please? Anyway, thanks a lotfor your help!

Plus added several maps I have 2 copies, so hope we will put together at least 2 more maps to get to 5 (but 6 will be better Smile)

We found pub 5 minutes by walk - we can contineu there our evening sessions and if we will be lucky, we wil get separate room.

There s ossibility to try some scenario (we talked bout Orcus, but if someone wants something else, why not?) on Friday night or after Sunday "program". Just let me know!

I can bring 5 copies of Dwarven outpost / flooded ruins / jungle temple for certain.
I can bring the market square map I owe you, and the map I owe joost, too.

If I can find my stash of Temple of the Unseeing, easy to bring 5 of those.
