DESCRIPTION

The day is still young, but there are now many more Vaults awaiting your discovery. Within them? Many secrets… and a myriad of valuable Æmbershards, which you may exchange for prizes at Vault Tours and any other KeyForge events that feature a Prize Wall.

And now—in the Time of Triumph—you can enrich your Master Vault account with even more of these elusive Æmbershards by participating in the ChainBound events held at your favorite local game store!

By coordinating the results of these events with the KeyForge Master Vault, your Master Vault account, and the decks you've discovered, we can introduce our Prize Wall redemption system. But more than this, we can also influence the KeyForge metagame, promoting changes within YOUR. LOCAL. METAGAME!

Each KeyForge ChainBound event is run as a Swiss-style tournament of three or four rounds, depending on the number of players. Each game will be a single match. Players gain one Æmbershard for participating, plus one Æmbershard per game you win.

All Archon Chainbound events with have a $5 (taxes included) entry fee.

Players will need to bring the following two things to a Chainbound event:
1. Your QR code from your profile of the Master Vault application. This can be on your mobile device.
2. Your QR code from the deck you are playing. This is in physical form on your deck-list.
If you do not have a Master Vault (Asmodee) account, you will need one before registration. The tournament will not wait while you download the app and set-up your account. Do it before you come to ComicReaders for the tournament.

Leagues / ComicReaders Downtown: Star Wars Miniatures League
« on: March 05, 2019, 09:06:08 AM »
STAR WARS MINIATURES LEAGUE STRUCTURE

Introduction

All Star Wars Miniatures League events are designed for players of any skill level to participate in and track their results. All you need is an enthusiastic desire to destroy your foes in friendly competition. With advance notice players of Star Wars Legion or X-Wing will be available to teach you the game, but participants of the League are required to have their own models. The Star Wars Miniatures League is for Star Wars Legion and X-Wing 2.0, but might be expanded to other Star Wars related miniatures systems (Imperial Assault and Armada) if there is interest.

Joining the Star Wars Miniatures League

Joining the Star Wars Miniatures League is simple: Sign-up for the League by contacting ComicReaders Downtown, by responding to this post or by posting on the Star Wars X-Wing / Legion Regina Facebook page.

League games start Thursday, March 7 2019 and the League runs until Thursday, June 27, 2019.

We require a minimum of 4 players for the League.

There is no maximum number of players for the League.

League games are held at ComicReaders Downtown on Thursday nights for the duration of the League, but League players can arrange to play at ComicReaders Downtown on other days, too, if it is convenient for the players and if space is available at ComicReaders Downtown. The more you play the more points you accumulate!

Players do not need to submit their lists in advance but a copy of their list (in print or digital format) should be provided to your opponent prior to the game.

Lists are not required to be unique to each match, nor are they required to change between matches. You may play the same list for all your games, or change as you wish. You can also change factions-- in fact, you are encouraged to do so.

Month 1 (March)

Game Schedule

Star Wars Legion and X-Wing players have been meeting at ComicReaders Downtown on Thursday nights. Thursday night will still be available for Star Wars Miniatures and this time can be used for League games. But players can meet at ComicReaders Downtown on other days, too, for League games, if space is available.

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 League. You can use this thread to help contact other players in the Leauge or you can do so through the Star Wars X-Wing / Legion Regina Facebook page.

Please 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 without a time warning when it is time to close the store.

GAME PLAY/REPORTING
There is no maximum number of games you can play within a month of the League, but you cannot play the same opponent in the same game system more than once a week.

Report wins and losses along with any bonuses to ComicReaders Downtown via email (downtown@comicreaders.com) or through the forum thread or on the X-Wing / Legion Regina Facebook page.

To assist the League organizer, please report games in the following format:
Legion: Game Type (Veteran or New Recruit) - Player 1 (faction) fully-painted or unpainted vs. Player 2 (faction) fully-painted or unpainted. Winner. Loser.
X-Wing: Game Type (Veteran or Wingman) - Player(s) (faction) vs. Players (faction). Winner. Loser.

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 / Errata.

Thanks

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

DESCRIPTION

ComicReaders Downtown is holding a Colossal Warfare Sealed Tournament.

Sealed is a format where multiple players take unopened packs, open them, and make decks out of the cards they get from those packs. Players then play each other with those decks. For this tournament, each player will receive 6 packs of Colossal Warfare which they will use to build a deck. You cannot use cards from anything other than the booster packs given to you at the event.

You play games in this format using a deck made of One Leader card and 40 non-Leader cards. Any cards you do not use to make your deck can be used in your side deck. Leader cards can also be used in your side deck.

Players may exchange cards from their decks with cards in their side decks between games. As long as the number of cards in a player’s main deck remains the same, there are no limits to the number of cards that can be swapped out.

You don’t lose if you run out of cards in your main deck. Simply take the cards in your Drop Area and Warp and shuffle them back into your deck.

Matches consist of a set number of games. The player who wins two games wins the match.

This tournament will be a Swiss-style tournament with the number of rounds determined by the number of players.

We need a minimum of 8 players to run this tournament.

For the first match, players are paired with each other at random.
For the second match onward, players are paired against players with similar point totals.

- Players may drop out of the tournament midway.
- Players are allowed to drop out following the end of their currently assigned match.
- If a player chooses to drop out, they must inform the tournament organizers of their decision by the end of the current match.
- Players who drop out of a tournament midway are not included in future matchmaking and are not assigned a final placing.
- Players who are late to their assigned match and fail to inform the organizers by the time the match ends may be disqualified from the tournament.

Prizes
- Each player who takes part in the tournament will receive one Power Booster: Colossal Warfare
- Top 4 players receive one Series 4 Super Dash Pack + 1 pack of Colossal Warfare
- Top 2 players receive a package of Dragon Ball Super Card Game card sleeves + 2 packs of Colossal Warfare

DESCRIPTION

Thursday night at ComicReaders Downtown is a night for Star Wars miniatures! X-Wing 2.0 and Legion are regularly featured, but Armada is welcome, too.

STAR WARS X-WING
Star Wars: X-Wing Miniatures Game is a tactical ship-to-ship combat game in which players take control of powerful Rebel X-wings and nimble Imperial TIE fighters, facing them against each other in fast-paced space combat. Featuring stunningly detailed and painted miniatures, the X-Wing Miniatures Game recreates exciting Star Wars space combat throughout its several included scenarios. Select your crew, plan your maneuvers, and complete your mission!

STAR WARS LEGION
Star Wars: Legion invites you to enter the ground battles of the Galactic Civil War as the commander of a unique army of miniatures filled with troopers, powerful ground or repulsor vehicles, and iconic characters like Darth Vader or Luke Skywalker. While innovative mechanics for command and control simulate the fog of war and the chaos of battle, the game’s unpainted, easily assembled minis give you a canvas to create the Star Wars army you’ve always wanted to lead into battle — whether you fight for the monolithic, oppressive Galactic Empire or the ragtag Rebel Alliance.

STAR WARS ARMADA
In Star Wars: Armada, you assume the role of fleet admiral, serving with either the Imperial Navy or Rebel Alliance. You assemble your fleet and engage the enemy. Using the game’s unique maneuver tool, you steer your capital ships across the battlefield, even while squadrons of starfighters buzz around them. Then, as these ships exchange fire, it’s your job to issue the tactical commands that will decide the course of battle and, perhaps, the fate of the galaxy.

These are free events.

Players are required to bring their own miniatures and accessories.

Demos can be available if requested in advance.

X-Wing and Legion players can be contacted via https://www.facebook.com/groups/1723577761260649/. Use that group to arrange for games in advance of Thursday night or ask for a demo.

« on: January 29, 2019, 09:27:20 AM »
LEAGUE STRUCTURE

Welcome to ComicReaders' Warhammer 40K Kill Team League.

Games Workshop's Warhammer 40K Kill Team rules released in 2018 are used for this League, including any official errata released by Games Workshop.

The League will start February 1, 2019, will continue for three months and then end on May 11, 2019 with a Kill Team tournament at the May 11, 2019 Prairie Game Expo.

Month 1: February 1 - February 28 2019
Month 2: March 1 - March 31 2019
Month 3: April 1 - April 30 2019
League Tournament: Saturday, May 11, 2019 at Prairie Game Expo

Respond to this post to sign-up for the League. We will need your first and last name initial, what army you are playing, and the manner in which you want to be contacted by other players.

KILL TEAM DETAILS

The ComicReaders Downtown Kill Team League will be using the matched game rules as per Games Workshop's Kill Team core rules manual (pg. 62).

- Create a Command Roster of up to 20 models
- Each model must share a Faction keyword
- Fill out a Command Roster-- blank rosters can be found online-- with the required information for each model

Once the mission for a match is determined players then choose a Battle-forged Kill Team from the models listed on their Command Roster.

For your Kill Team to be Battle-forged it must adhere to the following restrictions:
- It must consist of at least three models and no more than twenty models
- It must include one (and only one) Leader (see pg. 68 of the core rules manual)
- It can include up to three other specialists (see pg. 66 of the core rules manual)
- It cannot include more than the maximum of any particular model, as detailed on its datasheet
- All models must share a Faction keyword (see pg. 18 of the core rules manual)
- The Kill Team cannot cost more than 100 points. Each model and each of their pieces of wargear has an associated points cost, as detailed in the points section for each Faction. The total cost of your Kill Team in points is referred to as its Force.

Datacards and Command Roster

Players need to record the details of each model in their Kill Team on datacards. These can be the datacards provided by Games Workshop or a digital equivalent. Each model needs to have one of these datacards and each datacard describes a single, specific model.

A player's Command Roster contains a summary of all of the models available to them. Players can use the Command Roster provided by Games Workshop or a digital equivalent. Players must share a copy of their Command Roster with their opponent before mustering for each match.

MATCHES

Players must share a copy of their Command Roster with their opponent before mustering for each match. This can be digitally or in print.

Once the Command Rosters have been shared and reviewed, players in a match have a maximum of five minutes to select datacards for models from their Command Roster, following all the normal restrictions for Battle-forged Kill Teams as found on pg. 62 of the Kill Team core rules.

Once a player has selected a datacard, it must be placed face-down in a stack, which should be concealed from their opponent. Players may need to add or remove datacards from their stack during this mustering period in order to not exceed the 100-point limit. When a player has finished selecting datacards, they declare to their opponent that their muster is complete. If both players declare that their muster is complete before the time limit is reached, the datacard stacks are revealed simultaneously. Each player checks their opponent’s datacards to ensure that they have a Battle-forged Kill Team, and then the players collect the models for the datacards in their stack and proceed to the next mission step.

If a player's Kill Team is not Battle-forged the player is given some extra time to make it so by adding / removing Leader, models, specialists from the stack as required. For example, if the player has exceeded 100 points, models are removed from the stack until the player's list is 100 points or less. Models cannot be added to the stack at this time; only removed. The only time model(s) can be added to the stack is if the player (for example) had no Leader in the stack. The player in this example would add a Leader but then might have to remove other model(s) if adding a Leader caused the points to be more than 100 points, which means the player then has to remove model(s) but cannot then add replacement models.

Some players might prefer to muster their 100 point Kill Team in advance of the match. That is permitted.

MISSIONS

The missions available will change each month.

Month 1 (February)
Randomly choose one of the missions from the Kill Team core rules manual.
Roll 1d4 and consult the table below:
1: Sweep and Clear (pg. 56)
2: Take Prisoners (pg. 57)
3: Recover Intelligence (pg. 58)
4: Terror Tactics (pg. 59)
Ignore the "resources" section of the mission, which is for campaign play.

Month 2 (March)
pending

Month 3 (April)
pending

TERRAIN AND BATTLEFIELD

The use of terrain is encouraged.  Players should strive to set up terrain in as symmetrical a manner as possible, working with your opponent to ensure a balanced playing area. If a mission has suggestions for setting up terrain follow those instructions as best as possible with terrain available.

Kill Team is played on a 30" x 22" play area, if possible, but 36" x 36" is permitted if both players agree.

COMMAND POINTS AND TACTICS

As per pg. 64 of the Kill Team core rules, all Battle-forged Kill Teams generate 1 Command Point at the beginning of each battle round. In addition, at the start of the first battle round a Kill Team generates 1 additional Command Point for each 10 points difference between your Kill Team's Force and your opponent's Kill Team's Force. Kill Teams may have other ways of generating Command Points. Unused Command Points can be carried over to subsequent battle rounds until spent.

Players spend Command Points to use a Tactic during a battle. The rules for Tactics begin on pg. 64 of the Kill Team core rules manual.

SPECIALISTS

The rules for Specialists begin on pg. 66 of the Kill Team core rules manual.

The League will not make use of the campaign rules, which allows Specialists to advance; but, as per pg. 67 in a Battle-forged Kill Team specialists can be fielded a Level 1 - Level 4. The point values for this are found on pg. 67.


BATTLE & BONUS POINTS
A win earns you 3 battle points, a draw 2 and a loss 1.

There are a number of ways to earn and lose bonus points over the course of the league.
  • Artisan - Any game played with a fully painted army without improper substitutes +1 point
  • Home Sector  - Played a game at ComicReaders +1 point per game

GAME SCHEDULE
The store is generally not available: Friday nights due to other events in the store.
Thursday and Wednesday nights typically have space.
The store is available during 10am - 5pm, too, during the weekdays.
Saturdays and Sundays often have a number events on the go so it is best to make arrangements in advance, if possible, because space cannot be guaranteed if you just drop-in.
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 League.

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 REPORTING
There is no maximum number of games, but you may only play a League player once per month to count for points.

Report wins and losses along with any bonuses to ComicReaders Downtown via email or posting in 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.

Leagues / ComicReaders Downtown: Warmachine / Hordes: Journeyman League
« on: January 05, 2019, 10:57:48 PM »
JOURNEYMAN LEAGUE STRUCTURE

Introduction

All Journeyman events are designed to be easy for players of any skill level to participate in and track their results. You don’t need complicated tables or charts to run or play in a Journeyman event. All you need is an enthusiastic desire to destroy your foes and, if you choose to paint your newly acquired models, a bit of creativity.

Joining the Journeyman League

The concept of the Journeyman League is simple: Sign-up for the League by contacting ComicReaders Downtown, by posting on SaskGames, or by posting on the Warmachine Regina Facebook page.

League games start Wedneday, January 9, 2019 and the League runs until April 24, 2019. A final tournament will be run at the May 2019 Prairie Game Expo to wrap-up the League.

We require a minimum of 4 players for the Journeyman League.

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

League games are held at ComicReaders Downtown on Wednesday nights for the duration of the League, but League players can arrange to play at ComicReaders Downtown on other days, too, if it is convenient for the players and if space is available at ComicReaders Downtown. The more you play the more points you accumulate!

You can sign-up by responding to this post.

Army List

The composition of player army lists will be as follows:

Month 1 (January)
30 Points
Battlegroup, Units, Solos, Theme Forces Allowed

Month 2 (February)
45 Points
Battlegroup, Units, Solos, Theme Forces Allowed
Warcaster/Warlock Swap Allowed

Month 3 (March)
75 Points
Battlegroup, Units, Solos, Battle Engines, Theme Forces Allowed

Month 4 (April)
75 Points
Battlegroup, Units, Solos, Battle Engines, Theme Forces Allowed

At the start of each month after the first, when players create their new army list it must contain all the models/units used in their previous month's army list. The only exception to this rule is that at the onset of month four, players can change the warcaster or warlock they were using to a new warcaster or warlock but must use that new selection for the remainder of the month.

Model entries with variable point costs, such as units, can be adjusted each month. (For example, Charles adds a unit of Bane Knights to his army and plays them as a full-sized unit. In the next month, Charles must include Bane Knights in his army, but he can play them as a full-sized unit or a minimum-sized unit.)

Scenarios

Month 1 and 2 will use the "Trial by Fire" scenario.
Month 3 and 4 will use the "Journey's End" scenario.

You can find the details of these scenarios in the Privateer Press' Journeyman rules PDF.

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

- Win (3 points)
- Tie (2 points)
- Loss (1 point)

There are a number of ways to earn and lose bonus points over the course of the League...
  • Creative Crusher - Any game played with a fully painted army without improper substitutes; +1 point
  • Destroyer  - The player with the most wins for the month is the Destroyer; +1 point
  • Battle Mad - The player with the most games played for the month; +1 point
  • Slayer of Champions - Win against the current Destroyer; +1 point
  • The Mentor – Taught / helped a player in the League who is new to Warmachine / Hordes; + 1 point per
  • Herald of Jerkdom - 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.

A player can play as many games each league week as he likes, but he cannot record a game against an opponent when the last game he played was against that same opponent.

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

Overall standings only affect entry into the final League tournament (and bragging rights).
