Do you like...

Starwars?
Wargaming?
Drinking fine ale?
Relaxing and having a good time?

Then this could be the event for you!

This will be a one day only X-wing tournament held in the Twisted Hop Pub in Woolston on the 7th of June. The format will be pretty loose but will roughly follow the fantasy flight 100 point tournament rules and will feature some custom missions. We are talking very casual but extremely well organised.

The Details

When - 7th of June
Where - The Twisted Hop Bar, Woolston
Time - 10.00am till 5.00pm
Cost - $10 entry (paid on the day)
Prizes - Yep, X-wing swag
Format - 100 points, 3 x games + 1 special
“Death Star Assault” bonus round

The Schedule

!0.00am - Arrival, milling about, confusion, buying of drinks, chin wag, trash talk, etc
10.30ish - Mission 1 "Skirmish"
12.00ish - Lunch
1.00pm - Mission 2 "The Dread Pirates Last Stand" (custom scenario)
2.30pm - Bonus round "Death Star Assault"
3.15pm - Mission 3 "Skirmish"
4.45pm - Wrap up and prize giving
5.00pm - fin

NB. Missions will be timed to 90 minutes, (unless the game is really exciting.)

What to Bring

The obvious - Your models, squad roster, cards, dice, entry fee, beer money, etc
1 x Base game - specifically - rulebook, movement templates, asteroids and all tokens

Registration

Email me jsklempel@xtra.co.nz

Please register ASAP and send me a copy of your squad roster before the 5th of June.

I'm looking at changing the date to the 7th of June due to the unintentional clash with Southcon.

Anyone got a problem with that?

Just done some sums and worked out the minimum numbers for this event to run.

1. Me
2. The dude behind the bar

So long as those guys turn up then this thing is a go!

Hi Jarred,

Do you require people to preregister (and army lists) or just turn up on the day??

Also, is there any entry fee?

Cheers,

I've updated the first post with a lot more detail. The answers are all there but, yes please register and $10 entry, paid on the day.

I won't turn away people who don't register but may give them a very cross look :evil:

This is a long shot but...

Does anyone have any turbolaser models? I need ten of them for the Death Star mission, I've made some but they are pretty rough.

If you do have some and could spare them for Saturday, send me a PM.

On a side note - what was the token y'all used for the asteroid listening post for the December event?

Thanks!

Thanks mate, I think those will work.

Oops I was going to post all the mission stuff from December and forgot. I'll try and remember to post it after this weekend.

If you email me I'll send you the JPG. jsklempel@xtra.co.nz

Glad it works for you :)

One suggestion (someone on BGG suggested this), when you build them, toss some dried beans/peas/lentils inside to weight them down. I used a washer.

Tried the e*mail address, got a bounce back ;P
