Hey All!

If you have the time and are planning on attending, please fill out the linked form. This will help me get a better idea of attendance as well as act as a pre-sign up to secure your spot. Right now we are unsure if Mayhem will have their new game room in time for this event. If they do, we will have more than enough space for everyone. If not, we are currently holding a cap of 40 but may be able to squeeze one or two more games in on top of it if need be.

Per this thread, here is the new ruling on Raddus Commander. I will be ruling per this forum thread as well as all other armada documentation.
Admiral Raddus (Upgrade Card Errata)
This upgrade card's effect should read:
"Before deploying fleets, you may set aside 1 other friendly ship with a command value of 3 or less. At the start of any round, you may deploy that ship at distance 1-2 of you. That ship cannot be deployed overlapping squadrons and cannot be the first ship to activate that round."

Last reminder about the Armada Prime Championship this Saturday in Des Moines, IA! We are up to 27 confirmed via our Google Form (link below). Please fill this out if you are planning to attend as this helps me prepare plus will ensure your spot if we hit max capacity. We are 2 confirmed away from 4 rounds and a cut to top 2. Please plan your day accordingly! I have the schedule set up to show estimated timelines for each round.
