Last year's tournament had 70 players, including several who play Memoir Online or post on the Forums here.
This year's tournament will feature 6 scenarios from the Campaign Book's Fall Gelb campaign -- specially chosen by last year's champion, because they took place near his home in Belgium.
Click the website link, above, for the full Event Preview, including a list of the battles.
For the first three scenarios, you only need the base game. Rounds 4-6 use elements from the Terrain Pack. (Roads, railroads, marshes, rafts, rolling dice to blow up bridges.) Summary cards will be provided. Air Rules will not be used.
Two-game matches, single-elimination. Thursday evening Mulligan round: Losers can re-enter round 1 in the morning. Winners skip directly to round 2.
Teaching / Demo: Thursday at 8pm
Mulligan round: Thursday at 9pm
Main tournament (6 rounds): Friday at 9am, 11am, 1pm, 3pm, 5pm, 7pm
