    'Ard Boyz... A lil' help...

    I have volunteered to organize and run the qualifying round of the 'Ard Boyz Tournament at Comic Emporium in Panama City, FL. To be honest, I'm not sure we will even have enough participants to even hold the event, though the word has been put out. This is probably the first big 40k event to happen in our area.

    Assuming we hold the event, any advice on running it?

    How many people are taking part so far? And do you actually have a set up for how the rounds will work?
    How long is the tourney to last, and how many games will it be?

    Here's a link to the full rules:
    http://us.games-workshop.com/news/ev...rdBoyzRulz.pdf

    But to answer your questions:
    1. To be honest, nobody so far.
    2. Covered in the Rulz.
    3. 3 games, timed at 2.5 hours each.

    Be flexible with your start time. Get some tables set up in advance and have some extra's ready to set up in case more people show up.
    Have your scoring sheets and scenarios printed up in advance and all ready to go.
    For the first round, if the rules specify how to match up opponents (I don't recall), then follow that, otherwise randomly assign opponents. Announce your start time and give table assignments. Start the clock!
    Give a warning 30 min before the end of the round. Tell players not to start another turn unless BOTH can finish WITHIN the time limits.
    Quickly gather scoring sheets and calculate winners.
    Re-do matchups, rinse and repeat.

    If this is all too basic for what you are asking, I apologize. If you want more specifics, please let me know.

    Anyone can correct me on any errors...

    How many players are in your area? Call the ones you know and encourage them to sign up. Is this a store where people normally play? How many tables does it normally have and how many can it support? Have you put a sign-up sheet in the store? Do the employees tell customers about it? Are there any local gamestore forums or local clubs? If so, contact them!

    Good luck!

    Well, yeah, most of that was pretty basic. My fault, I shoulda specified that I was looking for things that might not have been thought of. Thanks for trying though...

    Extra tables won't be necessary; players must be pre-registered.

    We have a decent group that plays at the store (independent retailer) every Saturday. We have a group page on Yahoo. I honetsly believe that NO ONE is interested. Many play Chaos and are more focused on the new codex, plus we are in the planning stages for a MegaBattle to celebrate the new Chaos.

    So its looking like no 'Ard Boyz in Panama City....
