40lk 1850pts 5 games over 2 days 25 tables
40k 1850pts/fantasy 2250pts 5 games each on separate days 25 tables
40k 1850pts/fantasy 2250pts 5 games same time 15 tables
other: please explain
some people are organising a convention/grand tournament in my area. the goal is to get this going bi-yearly and increasing in size.
the current idea is to have dnd and a magic tournament, plus painting competitions and bitbash competitions. this issue is that it will be a two day event and people are trying to figure out the main tournament structure.
so, interested in seeing what you would travel five hours to attend over two days. there will be good prize support and various other activies such as malifaux and infinity demos, etc.
the options are so far:
1850pts of 40k on 25 tables. 5 rounds with three on sat and two on sun.
1850pts of 40k on 25 tables. 4/5 rounds sat. 2250pts of fantasy on sun 4/5 rounds.
1850pts fo 40k on 15 tables 5 rounds with three on sat and two on sun. 2250pts of fantasy on 15 tables 5 rounds with three on sat and two on sun.
we are trying to set this up to be done twice a year and trying to get people to want to come back. which do you think is best or is there something else you might suggest?
First I would not drive 5 hours for an event like this. If it was only a Tournament. maybe if it was a convention along similar likes to Games Day with other side events. Mainly because 5 hours means that I would need to get a room at a hotel for the night. This hobby is quite expensive as is. I can't drop a couple hundred dollars for a 2 day tournament.
Now if the events themselves were contained to one day, that is a different story. I could choose what day i wanted to attend and then plan accordingly. If I enjoyed myself on one day, I might be persuaded to rent that room then.
Army's used: Space Wolves, Tomb Kings, High Elves, Tyranids, Tau and Eldar.
Thanks for the feedback. We are planning to have other events before, during (for those not in the tournaments) and after the tournaments, but were looking at having a main two day tournament. The reason for a two day was that if we get the number of people we are hoping, it would require more games than could be reasonably handled in one day to be really fair.
i looked over the events for last year's games day and to the extent we can' starting out and on a budget, we will be having similar events and having looked at the list, i have a few more ideas of things that can be added. thanks again.
