A tournament at a Bar. And all I bought all day was coffee.
Jarred put on a 100pt Tournament at the twisted Hop Bar in Woolston Christchurch. Good venue, with a mezzanine floor arrangement where you can hide the gamers out of sight by still in range of the bar.
It was Three games plus a Death Star 'bonus round'. Games one and three were standard. Game two had 12 (!!!) asteroids and a kill the pirate scenario condition.
There were 18 players, if you count the TO. I suspect it was more like 16 players in total. I've played a bit of X-Wing but since I've become the gaming hermit after child # 3 arrived, it was really good to play some of the other Christchurch regulars and face three totally new opponents. This isn't a superdetailed report, as I was busy having fun.
Game 3 was me hoping I could win! Hah. My opponent, John. Had so far not lost a single ship all day. He had the Gencon 2013 X-Wing build. Because I am also a slightly bad person, I pointed out to him that I'd already seen pretty much the game we having on Youtube and it did not end well for the Rebels :P
Final placings were:
I am pretty sure much fun was had by all. I definitely had fun, anyway. Thanks for reading.
