We finally had 12 players attending the 2006 Age of Steam tournament. Many players were anxious before the begining of the first game, some were afraid to lost their title while some others were dreaming of winning the famous trophy. Martin and Nathalie had everything ready when we arrived by 1PM and we were able to begin soon after.

We decided to make 3 groups of 4 players that would be reshuffle randomly after each round. There would be 3 rounds of games, so each player would play 3 games. For each game the winner would get 5 points, 2nd place=4 points, 3rd place=3 points, 4rd place=2 points. There is not perfect system of scoring but everyone accepted these rules and we have to remember that the first goal was to have fun. We were all ready to rumble.

Here are the results for each round

Martin and Nathalie again organized a great tournament and everybody really enjoyed their game day. First rule stated by our hosts was to have fun and I think their objective was meet. We had new players and even if some people had more experience than others the newbies performed very well. It wasn't always easy for them but they have learned many new tricks and I'm sure they'll be back next year to give us some lessons.

Age of Steam is the favorite game in our group because of the high replayability, the interaction between players and the fact that you can try to control some parts of your game. Some people don't understand how we can play a game so often, organize a tournament and even work on new expansions but after 3 years of playing AOS we have the same excitement than in our first games. We hope Martin and Nathalie will still be ready to host the AoS tournament in 2007 with even more players.

Congratulation Marc-André for your win. Hope you'll take good care of the trophy until next year
