Don't let the word tournament scare you! You don't have to know how to play to come, this is a great event to jump into the game if you have been thinking of joining!

Louisville Warhammer Invasion Tournament

Come play in our first Warhammer Invasion Tournament at BlueGrassMagic GameShop 

 

Oct. 21 from 6:30PM until Midnight

BluegrassMagic GameShopdirections
5629 Outer Loop,
Louisville, KY 40219

502-964-1170

 

You don't have to have cards or know how to play. This tournament is geared toward new players to get cards in their hands.

We will be buying a core set and one of every deluxe expansion. Each player will be assigned a race and all cards from each expansion that go along with that race. We will then draft the neutral cards(drafting will most likely involve a bidding system using the core set draft cards as currency).

When the tournament is over you will get to keep the cards you play with! This is a great way for a new player to jump into the game, giving you all the cards you need for a complete race from all the expensive sets so you can jump right into building your collection with the less expensive battle packs.

Below is a list of all the sets we will buy(Note if more than 6 players sign up we will buy more Core sets and Assault on Ulthuan's to cover the added players.):


Core Set......................$40
Assault on Ulthuan........$30
March of the Damned....$30
Legends.......................$30
Prize Support................$20
Total...........................$150


Divided by 6 players(the minimum)......$26.30 each with tax included(price may vary slightly depending on the total number of players)

Prizes:

1st place = $15 in store credit

2nd place = $5 in store credit

NOTE: RSVP must be entered by no later than Oct. 14 so we can have time to order the sets.

Price won't be that variable. We want to keep it as close to $25 a possible.

We will simply add on Assault on Ulthuan(elf set) and Core sets as needed.

Example(tax included):

7-8 players:
We will buy,2 Assault on Ulthuan and 1 core set
$23.85(8p) - $27.25(7p) each

9-10 players:
We will buy, 1 Assault on Ulthuan and 2 core sets
$20.20(10p) - $22.40(9p) each

11 players
We will buy, 2 Assault on Ulthuan and 2 core sets
$21.20(11p) each
 

12 Players:
We double everything(march of the damned and legends included)
$26.30(12p) each

We've been talking about different ways to draft and I think we've come up with an easy way.

We are going to pass out the 6 base race cards to everyone(randomly unless your really want a particular race and we will do what we can). We will then shuffle all neutral cards together and place them into packs of 15 and draft them Magic style.

If you are interested please RSVP as soon as you can so we can get a good head count.

The tournament went great! We had 6 total people sign up.

Dwarves came in 1st and Chaos in 2nd, I really wish I had taken everyone's deck lists, but forgot to have them write it down in all the excitement.

Here are some photos of the event.

The idea behind the drafting was to get all the essential cards for one race into new players hands from the most expensive sets. This would allow them to research and buy the less expensive battle packs as they see fit to have a competitive deck of their own for the future, while giving the more experienced players a fun new variant to flex their deck building muscles at.

In achieving these goals I feel like the tournament worked like gangbusters, I really liked the draft format and would be all for doing it again. The only criticism I heard and happen to agree with was in regards to the price. $26.25 is a little steep if all you are looking to do is draft for the sake of playing and have no interest in the cards. That's why for the next tournament I am proposing the format be constructed.

We already have our next tournament in the works, It will be a constructed event instead of draft so it should be a lot cheaper(probably around $5)! Hope to see some new people!
