This one day event is to be seen as a series of fun engagements where winning or losing has no ultimate bearing on prizes being offered. The prize pool will be distributed by random draw on the day. The reasoning for this is to encourage players to participate in an accommodating and enjoyable experience. It is hoped that this will occur.
Each Round will use the following scenario.
Fleet Size 700 points
Turn Up and Fight
Games are played on 4’ (deep) x3’ (wide) tables. Players dice for choice of table edge, highest roll chooses. Terrain will be fixed on each table; there will be no need to place terrain. Once table edge has been determined, players will dice again; the highest roller will select one squadron at a time and deploy it with the players alternating until ALL squadrons are on the table.
The deployment area is between 12”-16” from their baseline and 4” in from either side.
