Where: Filmmakers (Cash n Carry location, lots of big round tables)
When: Saturday 11/23 afternoon-Teaching/demos/friendlies
Saturday 7 p.m.: Tourney, lasting until only one standing

Here's the deal:

The Code o' tha West applies-No Landslides, Brawlers, Puppet Shows, Lode Campers, Los Ojos Loves 'em All-Reaping of Cards, etc.

To make this a fairer fight, I'm going to restrict this to:
Double Barrel (no more than 2 copies of a card)
Derringer (no more than 1 copy of a card)
Bicycle (52 different cards in standard poker deck)

Any 'official' Doomtown card plus HEG releases (see Saints and Sinners below) may be used.

This here is a 'double elimination-Ante' tournament:
Each player will receive via draft THREE Ante cards (I provide these). These will be jokers, mon-backs, signed cards, promos, rares, and all around good stuff.

Players will challenge each other. Winner selects ONE Ante card from the loser.

No Risk, no Gain: You can decline a challenge, but you forfeit ONE ante card (challenger's choice) and are eliminated from the main tourney. You keep any remaining Ante cards.

--> You can be Stud enough to claim Jack's Left Shooter or a Mon-Back outfit, but are you Stud enough to keep it?

Drop-outs and losers of TWO games (you get to keep at least ONE ante card, gratis) can play in the '2nd chance tourney'-NO Ante at risk, but the winner of the most '2nd chance' games will get a special prize.

Harrowed Entertainment Group has provided prize support from:

http://doomtownarchieve.webs.com/saints-sinners

Lots of good stuff to be won and earned!

Finally, if there are at least 4 total participants, HEG will work with the tourney winner to design and produce a CSA Champions card to join the Pantheon! Last year's tourney is represented by Blake Crawfords's "Key to the City".

Re: CSA Deadlands: Doomtown tourney at BGGCON 2013
I've had several PMs along the lines of:

"I'd love to play, but I've never played"

Well, fear not, gentle Drifters. Doomtown is a collectible card GAME. Games are meant to be played. I have no problems teaching the game and turning you loose on each other

This is what I like about Ante/Double-Elim: EVERYONE gets to play, everyone gets to win something. Hopefully we can get rid of those mournful, "but I've never played".

Re: CSA Deadlands: Doomtown tourney at BGGCON 2013
I'm in. Will bring my collection if newbies want to borrow/build decks from it. Most of what I have ready to go is Bicycle, but I am interested in the other formats too.

Now I'm off to pack my bags, plane leaves for Texas TONIGHT!!!!

Quick update:

Built for learning and also 'play and take' (you play it, you can take it):
Lawdogs: Mob Justice-Dead Man's Hand shooter
Blackjacks (original)-straight flush shooter (clubs)
Collegium-New Front: Gadget Tech full house/four kind shooter
Sioux (original) Spirit Tech, straight flush shooter (Spades w/ dudes w/ upkeep)

Ante: I'm aiming to go 2 or 3 deep on Ante (I provide the ante-y'all play to keep/lose 'em) in no particular order:

3S Father Juan Navarro (BJ) signed by artist Lissanne Lake
4S Elysium Fields Mine (MOH Rare w/ 2 CP version)
7H Ghost Infestation (MOH Rare)
2D Big Doc's Casino (promo)
7S Lilith Vandekamp xp (promo)

Regular Joker
Collegium (mon-back)
Sioux Union (mon-back)
Flock (original) Sealed starter
Agency (original Sealed Starter
Reaping of Souls promo poster

c. 200 GR card in 1's, 2's, 5's

2 column 'shoebox' JAM PACKED Full w/ various commons/uncommons across all booster-released episodes (most cards 2x or 4x). Great for new players to get an 'instant collection'.

Some newly found goodies that will definitely be in demand. Trust me, you WILL want to play for these...

There will be HEG support for winner (including card design), Top 4,top 8, top 12 (these are cumulative) and Sportsmanship. As noted above, the winner of the '2nd chance/losers' tourney will get a very special prize indeed.

Re: CSA Deadlands: Doomtown tourney at BGGCON 2013
Cosine's Ante format

In particular

Quote:
Event Description

This year we used my Open Challenge format with ante cards provided by me. Each player on registering receives a 3x5 notecard. On one side they write their name and outfit. Then they select 3 cards from those provided and write those down too. When everyone is ready, anyone may challenge anyone to a game. Each player antes a card. Winner takes the cards. At any time, a player may quit and keep their remaining cards. Players with no cards to ante are out. Players should avoid playing the same player over and over if possible.


Tweaks:
1) also include BGG username
2) Ante will be an 'open snake draft'-cards laid out, each player draws a card (1-# players). Highest goes first selects 1 item from the ante pool. last person selects two cards and goes back up the group. Latecomers can select Ante from the remaining items
3) No Risk, no Gain: You can decline a challenge, but you forfeit ONE ante card (challenger's choice) and are eliminated from the main tourney. You keep any remaining Ante cards

--> "The play is the thing"-I put up some nice cards, you play some games

4) Once you lose two games, you can play in the 2nd Chance tourney. Same format-challenge someone to a game, but NO ANTE at risk.

5) Formats as per original post: Bicycle, Derringer, Double Barrel only.
