D-Con 2018 is on Saturday 8 December 2018. There will be a WABA Deep Sea Adventure Tournament, run by WABA and administered by myself with help from Warren. Entry is free, and the most successful diver will win a prize!



Deep Sea Adventure takes place over 3 rounds, and the player to gain the most points over the 3 rounds is the winner. In order to gain points, you must bring the most ruins chips back to the submarine. You can only return to the submarine once per round, and you cannot progress more after returning. You cannot return to the submarine without bringing any ruins chips.

Time: 1.45pm for diver training (rules explanation) for a 2pm start, until about 3.30pm

Prize: 1 copy of Deep Sea Adventure for the best diver.

The expedition tournament is limited to 18 divers players. You do not need to know how to dive play the game to join the tournament - everyone will be taught the rules on the day (1.45pm).

----------------------

The tournament will be played with slightly modified rules and scoring* will happen after each qualification round:

Round 1: Play as normal. 3 simultaneous games with up to 6 divers each.

Round 2: Divers from game A go to game B, game B to game C, game C to game A. Effectively, each group dives in a new location for better luck.

Round 3: Rotate again so that every player has taken a dive in each "location".

Final: Depending on # of entrants, top 6 players are selected to go on one last dive for the win - one full final game.

*Tie breaker: highest collected single ruin chip, 2nd highest, etc.

----------------------

To be selected as one of the divers, please comment/reply below with your name** (and diver nickname if you wish). Any unregistered spots will be opened up for people to join on the day.


1. Steve "Reserve Tank 2" Roberts
2. Ben 'Chips' Moss
3. Oliver 'Aquaphobic' Searles
4. Nyssa 'Scuba Steve' Searles
5. Cazz 'Traitor' Centa
6. Shaun '1st' Centa
7. Misha 'Run Silent, but Deadly'

10. Christina 'Catfish'

12. David 'Shark Bait' Hamilton
13. Tyrone "Aqualung" Cheeseman

15. Martin 'Donaudampfschifffahrtsgesellschaftskapitän'
16. Ryan 'Drunken Sailor' Lord
17. Ethan "Reserve Tank 1" Roberts

G'day, I'd like to register, Ben Moss, diver nickname 'Chips'

I'm was tempted to use the Futurama quote for ocean madness being 'the screaming moist' but I think it may be offensive to some people.

Done! Any preferred nicknames? Also I assume you know them and can identify them on the day? Because I don't

Added 4 reserve slots for people to sign up and maybe get a spot on the day if someone in the current active slots drops out for some reason.
