WiscoDice at the Best Four Days in Gaming

Suzanne and myself made the trip this September to our first convention in well over a year and a half. Gen Con 2021 was an amazing experience. There may have been reduced capacity, typical vendors were not there, and some vendors that were there had booths that were significantly different. That didn’t make the convention any less awesome. In fact, in many ways it made Gen Con 2021 the best Gen Con to date!

There was so much to see and experience this year. With smaller crowds and lines you were able to more easily enjoy the things that you wanted to do. Events may have been hard to get signed up for, but it wasn’t so hard if you wanted to walk up and try a game. There are always no shows for events and this year was not an exception. On top of that, almost the entire Hall A was dedicated to open gaming which made that section of the convention a very happening place each evening!

Gameholecon 2018 Star Wars Legion Tournament

Here are the promised rules for the 2018 Gameholecon Star Wars Legion event happening on Sunday. Please ensure you are familiar with the Fantasy Flight Rules Pack for tournaments. This is available in the Tournaments section of the Legion page on the Fantasy Flight Games website.

Tournament Tier: Relaxed
Stucture: Basic (No Cut)
Number of Players: 16
Points: 800
Rounds: 6 or less players, 2 rounds. More then 6 players there will be 3 rounds
Round Length: Rounds will be 120 minutes long with a 10 minute pre-game set up time

Lists: Players must have a copy of their list available for the Organizer, preferably printed using Tabletop Admiral. If a player does not have a printed copy of their list, then they will be provided a form at registration and required to provide a detailed list of units and purchased upgrade cards. A player found playing with options not on the list submitted to the Organizer will be disqualified from the event.

Schedule (rough):
8-8:30 AM: Registration
8:30 AM to 10:40 AM: Round 1
10:50 AM to 1 PM: Round 2
1 PM to 1:30 PM: Lunch
1:30 PM to 3:40 PM: Round 3
3:40 to 4 pm: Final Results and Awards

Ringer: As this is a relaxed format event, if there is an odd number of players the Organizer, who is also filling in as a leader will play as the ringer. The ringer will not be eligible for any prize support or be considered for final event scoring, however your result against the ringer will be your result. Thus a loss against the ringer is considered a loss in the event. The idea of the ringer is to ensure everyone gets to play as many games of Legion and have fun through the day.

Overall results will be posted to the WiscoDice website.

Prize Support: TBD
