Ralph McDonald, the tournament director for the Nor'easter XXII Saturday mini has just announced the scenario list. There is no scenario list! That's right, the theme of the Nor'easter XXII Saturday Mini is "Fog of War".
Here is how it will work:
The players will need their German, Russian, American and British OBs. The boards for the scenarios will be provided.
At the beginning of each round all the pairings will each be given a sealed envelope with the 3 scenarios for the round and they will have 10 minutes to choose scenario and side (per rules described on http://www.yankeegamers.org/noreaster/noreasterRules.php).
After setup, play will begin for the round.
The players won't even know the boards they will be using! That's fog of war in ASL.
There is still room for this exciting mini so sign up now! If there are any questions, feel free to contact Ralph (firstname.lastname@example.org).
General Nor'easter XXII information:
The Nor'easter will start at 1000 EDT (1400 Zulu) on Thursday April 5th 2018 and go until 1800 (2200 Zulu) EDT on Sunday April 8th 2018, with 24-hour access to the gaming rooms. The Thursday game play is open gaming, with the exception of the Big MoFo large scenario tournament. The MoFo, due to the scenario sizes, starts on Thursday but the main tournament and minis start on Friday/Saturday.
Like last year, we will feature special support for ASL Starter Kit (SK) players. Mitch Abrams will return as the SK master of ceremonies and will work out match-ups, scenario suggestions and assist with rules questions.
Location: Boxborough Regency (formerly the Holiday Inn of Boxborough)- 242 Adams Place, Boxborough MA 01719.
