Summoner Wars Tournament
Five For Fighting format
Swiss style, with like records playing each other until we have one undefeated player. Bring five different faction decks to play, using the standard deck building rules as described in the rulebook. When you register, you'll list which order you'll play your decks.
We'll play 5 50-minute rounds (25 minutes per player on the chess clock).
I've got 16 Chess clocks for up to 32 players, and 20ish Mercenary Promo cards (A good mix of Khan Queso, Sairook, and Khexhu - these will be handed out on a first-come, first-serve basis).
There will also be at least one Summoner Wars Master Set up for grabs to the winner. Every player who shows up to play in the tourney will get a free choice of promo while supplies last. More prizes may be added and announced as we get a larger head count.
For anyone coming from out of town, there's a lot of space on the floor and couches of my house. We'll likely have some kind of after-party there either way...
1) James S. (as needed - will not play if there's an even head count without me).
