March to Mount Doom Madness

Wow, I can’t believe its been this long since I made a post.  I never even said anything about my Adepticon Experience or post-Adepticon decompression.  I’m going to try and rectify that in the very near future.  In the meantime though, I’m excited to share some news on a new event that I’m going to help run at the 2009 Chicago Games Day…

Do you have the will to make the journey all the way to Mount Doom?

Come find out as the Adeptus Windy City Lord of the Rings Club is proud to present the March to Mount Doom Madness Tournament for the Lord of the Rings Strategy Battle Game at the 2009 Chicago Games Day.  This tournament will feature a unique “bracket-style” pairing system and players will play their way trough a single elimination tournament during the course of the day.  Space will be limited and registration will officially open soon.  I’ll post full details on the registration as soon as I can.  Until then, here are some details regarding the tournament…

Army Requirements are 500pts following typical Legions of Middle Earth rules with the following exception:  MAXIMUM model count is 15. So bring out your heroes for this clash as you fight your way to the top of Mount Doom.  Army lists will be checked for accuracy the day of the event so be prepared with extra copies of your army list.  All models must be painted to a minimum three-color tournament standard.  All games will be limited to 50 minutes in length so prompt play is required.  Games will kick-off at 10:30 and the winner will crowned at around 4pm.

In addition to the tournament, the AWC LOTR club will also have some extra space throughout the day for pick-up games for LOTR:SBG as well as host a demo table showcasing the SBG.

I hope anyone thinking of attending Games Day will help support the club by coming over to these events.

If anyone has questions, feel free to leave a comment or head on over to the AWC Forums and post your comments there.

  1. 15 models for 500 points? WOW, that’s seriously limiting.

    How does single elimination work?

    Do I play a game, and then I am out? That would be… poopy.

    • Yep, we put the limits in place on purpose as we’ll only have 50 minutes to play each round. You can come up with some seriously fun armies with these limits.

      You’ve correctly surmised the single elimination format. You are only guaranteed one game. Keep in mind, this is a free event being offered by a local gaming club at Games Day. We hope its just a fun way for people to experience LOTR:SBG.

      My friends at AWC are already debating this HERE
