Last year, we had 69 players for the main tournament, plus four Overlord games. For the 10th annual WBC Memoir '44 tournament, let's see how many players we can get.
SPECIALLY CHOSEN: The scenarios were specially chosen by Nygaard, the person who has played far more Memoir Online games than anybody else. The GM asked him to choose public scenarios that are interesting and balanced, with a variety of strategic options. (Several of the scenarios are familiar, from the base game set.)
Mulligan round is 10PM Thursday. (We'll have a demo at 8PM for people who want to learn or relearn the game.) Round 1 starts at 9AM Friday. Get full details at http://www.boardgamers.org/yearbkex/m44pge.htm
Bring your game to get a better tiebreak number. You won't need expansions for the tournament.
OVERLORD: Overlords at 2PM Thursday ... 11PM Friday ... 10AM Saturday ... 2PM Saturday.
Update: Our 11PM Friday multi-player scenario will be the double-size "Overthrough" scenario they distributed at this spring's French Open.
(There's also an "open gaming" room all week, so you can play any time.)
WBC features tournaments for more than 100 different games, including Battle Cry, C&C Ancients, and C&C Napoleonics.
