2013 World Boardgaming Championships -- Memoir '44 tournament -- August 1-2 Sat, 20 April 2013 08:09
The WBC Memoir '44 tournament will be held Thursday-Friday, August 1-2, in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA.

> Thursday evening: Demo and Mulligan round.
> Friday: 6-rounds, 2-game matches, single-elimination. Tournament begins at 9am and continues into the evening.

Last year's tournament had 69 players, including over 20 who play Memoir Online or post on the Forums here.

This year's tournament will feature scenarios specially chosen by the person who has played more games of Memoir Online (and very possibly more total games of Memoir) than anybody else in the world -- more than 6,200 as of this writing -- Nygaard, from Denmark.

I asked Nygaard to choose a set of scenarios that would make a great tournament for WBC: Public scenarios, so players can see them in advance. For the first several rounds, scenarios that can be played from the original, basic set - so players don't need to bring any expansions. Interesting and balanced, with a variety of strategic options. A strong opening hand shouldn't guarantee a win, and a weak opening hand shouldn't guarantee a loss.

Also, he decided to include several scenarios from the base game. I hope this will encourage casual players to play. Since this will be WBC's 10th annual Memoir tournament, I'd love to see how many players we can have this year. Any chance we could hit 100? Smile
