DESCRIPTION

ComicReaders Downtown is an Official Konami Tournament Store!

Starting in May, Yu-Gi-Oh tournaments at ComicReaders Downtown will have prize support. Each player who played in the tournament will receive a Turbo Pack (booster 8). The pack will be given at the end of the tournament.

In addition, the winner of the tournament will receive 1 OTS Tournament Pack 7.

The tournament will be run with Swiss rounds. The number of rounds depends on the number of players.

Each round is 40 minutes. A timer will be used.

Players are required to register and report wins / losses in a timely manner to ComicReaders staff. Anyone who does not report their games to ComicReaders staff could have their Turbo Pack withheld.

Doors open at 12pm. The tournament begins at 1pm.

These are free events.

Players MUST have Konami Player IDs to take part in these sanctioned events. Temporary IDs will not be allowed because we can't upload tournament results with temporary IDs. Konami has sent us Konami ID cards so we can provide IDs to players without IDs.

Dragon Ball Super Card Game - Schedule for August 2018

DESCRIPTION

The Dragon Ball Super Card Game is the newest iteration of the Dragon Ball license applied to a collectable card game. While borrowing some basic terms and ideas from previous versions of the game, DBS introduces a number of new mechanics including a unique "combo" system, cards used for multiple purposes (energy, combos and characters) and a system designed to emulate the tendency of Dragon Ball characters to "power up" after taking damage.

Players of Dragon Ball Super meet at ComicReaders on Saturdays for casual games. This is a chance for experienced players to meet. It is also a chance for people to learn the game because the players are always welcome to teach newcomers.

Sometimes ComicReaders will host a special tournament for Dragon Ball Super Card Game, but those events will be posted as separate events in SaskGames.

Yu-Gi-Oh Cybernetic Horizon Tournament

DESCRIPTION

ComicReaders Downtown is hosting its first Sneak Peak event in a long while, but, to be honest, we are running it one week later than we were supposed to due to a scheduling error on the part of the store manager (Chad B). Sorry for the mix up, but we hope you still come up and take part in this special event. We are running this as a Sneak Peak even though, technically, the set will have been released by the time this tournament takes place.

Sneak Peeks are pre-release events that provide the opportunity to preview an upcoming set at an Official Tournament Store (OTS).

The registration fee for a Sneak Peek is $25.00, which is the suggest retail price of five (5) Booster Packs, no exceptions. All players entering the Cybernetic Horizon Sneak Peek will receive the following items upon payment:
• 5 Cybernetic Horizon Booster Packs
• 1 Sneak Peek promo, Contact Gate

In addition to the items a participant receives upon registering for the Sneak Peek, they are also eligible to win an exclusive Cybernetic Horizon Game Mat.
Two game mats will be given out randomly to two separate participants in the event. The game mats will be awarded at the end of the event; a player must be present at the draw to receive the game mat.

An Open Dueling event means there are no appointed pairings, no records of Wins and Losses maintained, and no time limit given on any given match. Players match up against others in the event at their own discretion.

Players should play a Match against five (5) different opponents using the Deck built for the Sneak Peek. A player who enters a Sneak Peek event but does not participate in any Matches, is not eligible to win one of the Game Mats as a door prize.

Once a player has their Deck built, they can Duel as much as they want against the other players in the Sneak Peek. These Duels are for fun and have no bearing on prize distribution.

Open Dueling utilizes Sealed Format in regards to Deck construction. In Sealed format events, participants use the five (5) Booster Packs and the Promo Card they received at Registration and build a Deck to play with. The Deck must meet the following requirements:
- A Minimum of 20 cards must be used for the Main Deck.
- Pendulum Monsters must go in the Main Deck.
- Link Monsters must go in the Extra Deck.
- All cards not used in the Main Deck are automatically considered to be a part of the Side Deck. The usual 0 – 15 card Side Deck rule does not apply.
- All Synchro Monsters, Fusion Monsters, Xyz Monsters, and Link Monsters must go in the Extra Deck.
- Players start out each game with 8,000 Life Points.
- Players play a Best 2-out-of-3 Match against an opponent to declare a winner.
- Unlike Constructed Decks, Sealed Decks have no restrictions on the number of any specific card in the Deck. A player may include as many copies of any card he or she likes, even more than three, provided all copies of those cards were obtained only from the product given for Deck-building in that event.
- In between games of a Match, you can add, subtract or exchange cards from the Main Deck with cards in the Side Deck. Main Deck size cannot be less than 20 cards.

Players may not trade the cards they received in their product with other players until they are done participating in the Sneak Peek.
Players may not add cards they already own to their Sneak Peek Open Dueling Deck. Only the Promo and the cards pulled from the Booster Packs provided for that player at Registration may be used for Deck building.

Dragon Ball Super Card Game - Colossal Warfare Tournament

DESCRIPTION

The Dragon Ball Super Card Game is the newest iteration of the Dragon Ball license applied to a collectible card game. While borrowing some basic terms and ideas from previous versions of the game, DBS introduces a number of new mechanics including a unique "combo" system, cards used for multiple purposes (energy, combos and characters) and a system designed to emulate the tendency of Dragon Ball characters to "power up" after taking damage.

Colossal Warfare is the latest release for the Dragon Ball Super Card Game. ComicReaders Downtown is hosting a tournament to celebrate its release.

Each participant will receive one Official Tournament Pack volume 4 as a participation prize.

The Tournament will be Swiss style. After the set number of rounds (number of rounds depends upon the number of players) the top three players will receive the following prizes:

First place - Four Tournament Packs + one card sleeve set of the player's choosing
Second place - Three Tournament Packs + the remaining card sleeve set
Third place - Two Tournament Packs

And there will be a random draw for one player to receive one Tournament pack. That random draw will not include the top 3 players.

Players are required to bring a legal tournament deck. Decks will not be provided for new players.

    LADDER STRUCTURE

    Introduction

    Welcome to ComicReaders' first ever Age of Sigmar organized event. In a Ladder of Command Campaign players challenge each other in battle with the view of climbing the ladder. Being at the top of the ladder does not make you the winner of the campaign, however. Your overall standing in the campaign is a combination of other achievements.

    Joining the Ladder Campaign

    The concept of a ladder campaign is simple: A list of the players taking part in the campaign is made and is on display in the game room at ComicReaders (and online at SaskGames). The first player to join takes the first spot on the ladder; the second player takes the second spot on the ladder; and so on. If players sign-up after the campaign begins on July 16 they are simply added to the bottom of the ladder.

    We require a minimum of 8 players for the Ladder of Command Campaign. 

    There is no maximum to the campaign, but only the Top 8 players will be able to participate in a special event at the end of the campaign, with other players being able to participate if someone from the Top 8 cannot participate.

    Please sign up here

    Army Composition

    The ComicReaders' Ladder of Command Campaign will use the Pitched Battle rules found on page 310-311 of the 2nd edition core rules. Pitched Battle profiles can be found in the General's Handbook 2018 or the book where the warscroll for that unit appears.

    Details:

    - Vanguard (1000 points, etc, as described in the core rules)
    - Allegiance Abilities in effect (page 242 of core rules)-- includes Grand Alliance allegiance, factions, battle traits, command traits, artefacts of power, spell lores, and unique abilities...where applicable.
    - Triumphs
    - Endless Spells
    - Optional: Players can choose to roll on the Scenery Table if both combatants agree
    - Excluded: Garrisoning

    Players can change their army list between games, but cannot change their Grand Alliance allegiance. This will allow players to try out other models / units in their collection.

    Players can field units / models with square bases. Doing so will disqualify the player from receiving the "Artisan" reward, however.

    Where to Play / Realms of Battle

    The Realms in which the Ladder of Command takes place depends on the physical location of the game and the round of the campaign. Players will have access to the magic, commands, and realmscape features of the realm. Using a Realm of Battle in a match is optional.

    ComicReaders Downtown:
    Round 1: Shyish, The Realm of Death
    Round 2: Aqshy, The Realm of Fire

    Highland Curling Club:
    Round 1: Chamon, The Realm of Metal
    Round 2: Ghur, The Realm of Beasts

    Player's Home or other Venue:
    Round 1: Ghyran, The Realm of Life
    Round 2: Hysh, The Realm of Light

    The special event at Prairie Game Expo will be set in Ulgu, The Realm of Shadow.

    Battleplans

    Players can choose any of the Pitched Battles Battleplans (pages 312 - 317 in core rules) or can use the Pitched Battleplans listed on page 49 of The General's Handbook 2018.  Players can agree to use a specific Battleplan or can choose to roll a D6 and consult the relevant tables.

    Climbing the Ladder

    If the winner of a battle is lower on the ladder then the opponent, the winner swaps places with the opponent.

    If the winner of a battle is higher on the ladder then the opponent, the winner swaps places with the player directly above them on the ladder-- unless the winner is at the top of the ladder; in that case the loser of the battle moves down one spot on the ladder.

    In the case of a tie, both players remain in the current position.

    In addition to the above, anyone who doesn't play a game within a round of the campaign drops to the bottom of the ladder. 

    Please note: A "win" can be either a major or minor victory.

    Campaign Duration

    Games will start July 16, 2018 and will run for 2 Rounds.
    Round 1: July 16 - August 16
    Round 2: August 17 - September 17

    The Ladder of Command Campaign ends on September 17, 2018, with the special event occurring at Prairie Game Expo on Saturday, September 29, 2018. The Top 8 players will be invited to the special event, with other players invited if any Top 8 players are unable to attend.

    BATTLE & BONUS POINTS
    Players accumulate points through the duration of the campaign:

    - Major Victory (3 points)
    - Minor Victory (2 points)
    - Tie (2 points)
    - Loss (1 point)

    There are a number of ways to earn and lose bonus points over the course of the campaign...
    • Artisan - Any game played with a fully painted army without improper substitutes; models need to be on round bases, too, to qualify for Artisan +1 point
    • Neutral Ground  - Played a game at ComicReaders (1 point) or Highland Curling Club (+0.5 point) per game
    • Slayer of Champions  - Defeated the player at the top of the ladder + 1 point per
    • Never Say Die - Climbed the most spots on the ladder in a round +1 point
    • The Mentor – Taught / helped a player in the campaign who is new to Age of Sigmar + 1 point per
    • Fools Rush In - Games played with un-finished miniatures, or substitutes  – 1 point per game
    • Idle Hands - A player that does not play a game in a round---player’s points are reset
    • Herald of Chaos - Players with complaints regarding his or her conduct within the month: Suspension*
    *Multiple occurrences of this infraction will result in expulsion from the league and may affect eligibility from future ComicReaders Downtown events.

    PRIZES
    Prizes are provided by ComicReaders Downtown, details of the prize will be given to the winners of each month. Two prizes will be given out each month. All the prizes will be randomly drawn. Number of entries will be determined by a player's number of games divided by 2 rounded down.  A player may only win one prize each month.

    Overall standings only affect entry into the tournament.

    GAME SCHEDULE
    Thursday all day is guaranteed for space to be free in the store. Players do not have to only play on Thursdays at the store, but the space is made available. Saturday all day should be available, if a Saturday is not available, Lareina will try to post if there has been a booking for other tournaments. Players are to schedule games between other players.

    The store is generally not available: Friday nights due to other events in the store. Please call ComicReaders to see if there is any room in the store. Please use the Sask Games Forums (http://forums.saskgames.com/index.php?board=4.0) to find out if there are major events happening in order to help you schedule matches against other players in the Campaign. Go to the Leagues section (http://forums.saskgames.com/index.php?topic=7576) to help contact other players in the Campaign.

    When wanting to play games at the store, be mindful of store hours. Keep in mind how long it takes to set up and clean up a game, an hour or two may not be enough time to play a full game. Staff may ask players to leave when it is time to close the store without a time warning.

    GAME PLAY/REPORTING
    There is no maximum number of games you can play within a round of the campaign.

    Report wins and losses along with any bonuses to ComicReaders Downtown via email (downtown@comicreaders.com) or through the forum thread.

    We no longer require players to fill out the Sportsmanship Criteria cards, but this does not mean we will not be monitoring conduct. Depending on severity of the issue, a suspension may be given out without a warning. Please refer to the general Code of Conduct expected of players: http://forums.saskgames.com/index.php?topic=794.0

    If you are spectating games, please refrain from helping players with strategy or influencing players’ decisions. If there is a rule error or clarity of a rule is under dispute, if you know the answer, refrain from simply telling the players what the rule is, but instead find evidence in the rulebook or FAQ.

    THANKS
    This League would not be possible without the dedication of ComicReaders' staff.

    Rules are subject to change. I say this because this is my first Age of Sigmar campaign and though I tried to be thorough I may have missed or messed up something that requires a fix.
