Blood Night III - January 3rd

Post  nathanr on Sun Dec 15, 2013 8:51 pm

Since we are having a tournament on Saturday January 4th, I think it might be fun to make it a double-header and put on a small-point Friday nighter. In the tradition of the previous blood nights we'll do 1250 points and games will count toward the league. We'll do 3 rounds and start at 7.

Any out of towners who want to come out on Friday and stay for the big tourney on Saturday are welcome at my house, I've got spare beds for 3.

Sign up below with your name and choice of army.

Example: Nathan R - Dark Elves

I'd love to attend this but in the winter its next to impossible for me to attend back to back events. Cows kind uv like to eat each day so I'd have to travel back home after the Friday event and then take off again back to the city in the morning.

It's all good Carson. Hopefully a handful of people can make it out. At this point Sean and I are going to be playing three warmup games for Saturday!

So we've got myself, Dom and Sean for Friday night. It would be nice to have at least 1 more so everyone can have an opponent.

Well, it doesn't look as though we're going to get enough people out tomorrow night to have any kind of tournament. Instead, we have 4 tables reserved starting at 7:00 if anyone wants to stop by for a warmup game before the masters tournament on Saturday. I'll be there with 2500 points of bretonnians if anyone wants an easy win.

Next time I'll try to coordinate things a little better. I'd love to have these become a semi-regular event but the low turnouts are leading me to believe that this isn't something that people are interested in. Do people not like smaller point games or is it that Friday night tournaments don't work? I'm looking for honest opinions here guys.

Good question other Nathan.

My main reason for not attending was NOT the fact that the armies were going to be smaller, it was solely due to the fact that 2 tournaments in a 24 hour stretch is a lot of time to dedicate to Warhammer.

So for the future I love the idea of small Blood Night tournaments, but maybe have them Friday night, then an open games-day Saturday so that people don't have to commit to so much.

I timed this tournament partially to gauge the feasibility of running a two day event, also partially to try to accommodate the Moose Jaw guys who most likely wouldn't make the trip just for a Friday night event. I won't rule either of these options out for future planning but it isn't very encouraging for either. I like the idea of a Friday night tourney followed by a Saturday game day, maybe we'll try that for the next one.

2500 points Sean! My Brets are itching for a fight!

Previous experience Nathan was that blocking off a whole weekend for anything tends to make it difficult for people with busy schedules/families.

-edit- this was in reply to the 1250 Friday tourney and the 2500 next day event.

I have nothing against 1250+ point games. For me, it's just by the time I get there after work would be around 7 ish.

Quite frankly, when I think of a 2 day event my thoughts are a little more grand; A 5 game, 3 on Saturday, 2 on Sunday kinda thing. I guess everyone should just move to Saskatoon and this wouldn't as much of an issue.  Very Happy

That's why I made the start time 7 Wink . The first one we had started at 6 and we got 3 games in before 10 AND I even got to play a couple in between against the guys who finished their games quickly. We could have probably gone another round so that's why pushing the start time back to 7 was no issue. We could probably even do 7:30 but that wouldn't leave much time for cleanup.

That would be great too, definitely friendlier for the out of town guys to hold it on a saturday/sunday rather than a friday/saturday.

Aaah, yes I suppose. Thinking about this I actually wouldn't mind coming in Friday nights for a Saturday event. Even at 2500 points, I could get a game or 2 in Friday night, stay at the Rinholm Inn and not have to get up at 6 AM to drive Saturday morning.
