Through the Desert Tournament

WHEN: Sunday January 19, 2020
WHERE: Prairie Game eXpo
DURATION: 120 minutes

There are 2 rounds to the tournament. They consist of:
- 1 Preliminary Round (4 tables of 4 people)
- 1 Championship Round (1 table of 4 people)

Tournament Format

The Preliminary Round will consist of 4 boards with 4 players. Players will play 1 game. The winner of each game will qualify for the Championship Round. If the tournament does not have 4 tables, the winner of each game will qualify, plus the highest scoring player will move to the Championship Round as needed.

PRIZES: Tournament winner receives a PGX prize mug

Time limit: No round will go longer than 60 minutes. Final determination will be based on number of victory points total among games played in a round.

If we do not make our 16 player roster we will make amendments on the fly.

In Through the Desert, two to five players each control a tribe of nomads vying for control of the desert. By establishing caravans and taking over oases, the players gain points as their tribes increase in power.
Strategy is essential in deciding how and where to build your tribe's caravans. There are multiple ways to gain points and several ways to win. Should you try to build the longest caravan? Or should you dominate the desert's oases? Don't forget to keep an eye on your opponents' caravans, or you may find your own tribe cut off from valuable water holes.

GAME: Shadowrun 6th World
ORGANIZER: Thomas Boxall
TIME: 9:30am
DURATION: 2-3 hours
PLAYERS: 3-8 Players
DETAILS: Shadowrun is a cyberpunk-themed RPG set in the year 2080.  Magic has returned to the world, and Megacorporations have taken control.  You play as a Shadowrunner, a professional criminal and pawn of the Megacorporations.  So grab your deck, load up on ammo and spells, and above all else, never make a deal with a dragon.

I will be running an introductory session of Shadowrun 6th World, the latest version of the Shadowrun RPG system.  I will be using a custom Random Mission Generator based on the types of characters the players choose to play.  Players can be anywhere between new players to seasoned veterans of past Shadowrun versions.  We will not be going through character creation, but players with their own version of 6th World will be allowed to bring their characters to the table (GM approval will be required).  Pre-made characters will also be available.  For new players, an overview of the Shadowrun Universe will be provided.  Players are expected to bring a pencil, eraser, and a pile of D6s (you will be using between 3 - 20 dice in total).
Have fun, play games!

I will register for the X-Wing tourney.  Haven't played in a year and a half, and have never done 2.0, so it'll be good to dust the old ships off again!
My collection of board games:     Feel free to request something and I'll bring it out!

I will sign my son Zach up for the tournament, also small correction to the time, each round is a 75 minute round, unless that is unable to happen, thinking of just doing 4 rounds of swiss.
