The tournament is a swiss format, with prizes for first, second, third and third place. Players choose from five scenarios per round. Five or six rounds of play are required to select the winners. There is two rounds on Friday, three on Saturday, and one on Sunday.
Armor Friday Mini
This two-round armor mini starts Friday at noon and ends Friday evening. Registration is limited to four participants, and lasts three rounds. This mini-is for you if you enjoy lots of hardware but still want to participate in the main tournament on Saturday and Sunday.
Big Mo-Fo Tournament
This three round tournament lasts for the entire weekend. Rather than playing those "wimpy" short scenarios you see in the main tournament you are challenged to play big, beefy scenarios. Each day of the convention you will play a different, large scenario. This tournament is limited to 8 participants.
Saturday Mini Tournament
Starts Satuday morning at 8:00am, ending Saturday evening. Registration is limited to eight participants, and lasts three rounds. This tournament is for you if you're an experienced ASL player and are only going to attend on Saturday!
We will run an ASL Starter Kit tourney using scenarios from the first two starter kits. Participation is limited to new players, and we will feature a reduced registration fee for anyone who plays in this tourney and only attends on Saturday. Starts Satuday morning at 8:00am, ending Saturday evening.
