Western Front Tournament/sign up Fri, 21 March 2014 18:56
Hi all,

This will be my 4th online tournament. We now logically move on to the Western Front. It again will be a 10 scenario battle. I debated with myself whether to make it a standard tournament like on BGG. However, I really like the commonality of team play. This is the only chance we get to have fellow players to root for. I also like the banter back and forth throughout the weeks and months of play. So, the format will be the same for this tournament. We will have 2 sides. You will be on one side throughout the tournament. We will again have an overall commander for each side to determine lineups and to choose reserve units(we will have them again).

I also want to say that I do my best to make each scenario as even as possible and to make them interesting. It is very tough to do with what is allowed online at this time. As you all know there are too many unsupported terrain and units. My ability to challenge and interest you is really hindered by what is available. Oh, well.

OK, if you want to play in this tournament sign up here. I am hoping for at least 20 people who would like to play. I am just looking for an even number of players to make this work.

Eric

P.S. IGH, don't worry. I have you as the first to sign up!

Looney/Eric,

Since I finally broke .500 this front, I will gladly sign up for the next 10 and see if my luck holds out!!

If some newbies come along and are late to the show, I also wouldn't mind sharing my spot so they can experience this format and your scenarios, you know, I play 9 and they could play 1! LOL!

Ok, maybe a late more even.....

Thanks, Eric, for pre-opening sign up! Smile
I've enjoyed following the team comraderie, and like the format you offer in this tourney.

Could you explain a little about how the reinforcements works out online? Thanks

And Gonz, since I'm a newbie I'll take your generous 1 game and beg for another! Laughing

See you on the Western front and looking forward to the fun!

Count me in.

I doubt I can improve on my best ever 7-3 record in the last one but I will have fun trying.

Thanks guys,

We have 14 so far. I think that's a nice turnout. I'll keep it open for now in case someone was away for the weekend.

As a teaser, our first battle will be 'Resistance at Lille'. French Resistance, regular French units, and British units try to stop the German onslaught to Dunkirk!

I have to say Boyd that I wasn't expecting you to sign up for this one. But I for one am glad you did. I like playing you and think you are a tough opponent. So I wish us equal dice if we play against each other.

If we end up on the same team, I wish you just a little bit better dice than your opponents. Just to get a little edge.nothing outrageous. Wink

Just a few frustrating games when you review strategy, make contingency plans, and then find that your units are drunk and forgot their ammo. But the people are nice so it keeps me from throwing in the towel!
