I would like to gauge interest for setting up a Game of Thrones 2nd Edition Tournament in the Dallas/Fort Worth Area. I would need to get 36 entrants. As far as a date for the tourney, I will determine that once I find out how easy it would be to get 36 players in this area.
The Tourney would run like this, with a few small tweaks along the way Im sure.
$25 Entry Fee for a Guaranteed 3 games. Pure 2nd Edition Rules Only. Will probably have a timer on Planning Phase.
6 Players on 6 Boards to start. Random drawing for seats and houses.
Winners of the First Round meet at 1 "Champion" Board for 2nd Game. 30 Non-Winners of first round redraw for seats and houses and play at 5 boards for 2nd Round.
Winner of the "Champions" Board of second round gets $300 and Moves to Final Table. The 5 winners of the non Champion tables in round 2 move to final table.
The Non Winners of the Champions Board split to 5 individual tables, then everyone who has yet to win a game fills in the remaining seats at those 5 tables. Each of those tables winners get $50. The winner of the final table gets $200.
The other $150 bucks of the entry fees will go to the house for costs associated with hosting the tourney. Will probably get some winner plaques, have a big screen playing the whole first season throughout the day, food and other stuff.
I have about 6 to 8 friends who would play, and am always looking for more. Please reply to this post if you are in the area and think this is something you might want to do. If I got 6 people who had a group they play with that would be interested, then i can get this set up in no time.
