Scenario List and Structure for Wild West Fest 2018

Scenario List and Structure for Wild West Fest 2018

August 12, 2018 Uncategorized 0

Update August 27, 2018 – We swapped out a few scenarios from the original list – I’m using strike-through to show scenarios that were dropped.

Here is the framework for the Wild West Fest 2018 tournaments. Let’s start with a disclaimer: the “mini” tournament on Saturday is more of a jump-start to learn and love ASL, and less of a competitive tournament. Several of the mini players will be playing ASL for the first time, while others may only have 1 or 2 plays under their belts.

Full Tournament Overview

Here is the structure for the weekend. Times are approximate as we’ll try to keep things flexible. Official tournament rules are pending that will explain how we will resolve winners for not-yet-finished scenarios when we need to move things along.

  • Friday, October 19, 2018
    • 0900 – 1300 – Mulligan round. This is an optional round and you’ll have a variety of scenarios to choose from. This is a “no risk” round – no penalty for losing, and if you win you’ll gain some points.
    • 1400 – ??? – First round, theme is “Fun with Commissars”
  • Saturday, October 20, 2018
    • 0900 – 1300 – Second round, theme is “War in the Wild, Wild, West”
    • 1400 – ??? – Third round, theme is “A Minor Affair”
  • Sunday, October 21, 2018
    • 0900 – 1300 – Fourth and final round, theme is “Tanks for the Memories”

More details on the scenarios offered in these rounds below.

What’s This “Fog of War” Thing?

Each player is presented with an order of battle, (blind) setup / entry instructions, and a specific or rough outline of objectives. There will be very little to no knowledge of what the opponent will be bringing to the table.

Will There Be WWF Tournament Specific Scenarios?

Almost certainly. These are being worked on and, if available, will be offered during the mulligan round and as additional options for each of the regular rounds.

Mini Tournament Overview

The mini tournament is on Saturday only, though participants are encouraged to attend Friday and Sunday for pick-up gaming or to sit in and observe games being played in the full tournament.

  • Saturday, October 20, 2018
    • 0900 (or earlier!) – 1200 – First round, theme is “Hedgerows”
    • 1200 – 1500 – Second round, theme is “Russians”
    • 1500 – 1800 – Third round, theme is “Bulge and Before”
    • 1900 – ??? – Fourth round, optional and time permitting, theme is “Hodgepodge”
