Event will be held at Pegasus Games in Madison Wisconsin

Dreadnaught Derby

$10 entry fee. (see below for prize suport)

125 Fleet points, constructed.
Standard pitched battle, no scenario objective besides destroying your opponent, planet token at the center of the board and a few standard obstacle tokens.

+15 to final Fleet score each round if your build includes ships, captains, upgrades AND OP resources all from the same faction.

NO admiral's orders.

OP 1-6 LEs, and all retail waves available at that point will be legal.

You MUST take the Flagship resource. If you do not have a flagship resource OP element one will be provided to you (subject to availability, first come first served).

Your flagship MUST be a ship with a base fleet point cost of 26 or more points.

Your flagship MUST have an upgrade purchased for every available upgrade slot (Weapon, Tech, Crew, Elite Talent), including those provided by the flagship resources itself. You may not leave any upgrade slot empty, though you are welcome to purchase the least costly upgrades possible to fill them up if desired.

You may take ONE other OP resource IN ADDITION TO the Flagship resource. (Elite Attack Die, Sideboard, Action tokens, or Attack Squadron).

3 round dutch format like current OP events.

We will attempt to transition back to normal scoring (Fleet points for what you destroyed from your opponents fleet).

PRIZES:
GRAND PRIZE: DS9 Space Station Model
2nd-7th Prizes: Choice of OP 1-6 LE ship (Placement determines selection, 2nd place will have first choice, 3rd will choose from the remaining 5, and so on)

While I can't make it, I still want to dream up a build. Does that last part - the OP resources all from the same faction include the flagship needing to match faction as opposed to going with an independent faction flagship? That would be a bummer, but I could understand it as well.

It does. I clarified it on the FB event page, basically everything that has a faction icon needs to have the same faction icon for the bonus points.

It's a one-off nonstandard event, typical OP events at our venue basically go by the "default" fleet building rules.

I personally love the idea. I know 2 out of 3 places in my local area are considering ideas such as this to fill the dead time we have between OP6 and the Tholian Web/Arena OPs
