  • SAVED…



  • TOURNAMENT SCORING

    All team records within each division after playing 2 full games as both the Axis and the Allies will be calculated, and those with more wins than loses will go onto the medal round games. In the event of any and all ties, the following tie breaker chart will determine which teams move on and where they position in the medal round. The team with the best record after tie breakers at each medal round table will choose which side they wish to play.

    1st tie breaker: The team with the most Victory Tokens gained.
    2nd tie breaker: The team with the fewest Victory Tokens surrendered.
    3rd tie breaker: The team with the most Time Extension Tokens remaining.
    4th tie breaker: The team with the fewest Game Round Tokens accumulated.
    5th tie breaker: The team that rolls highest using (X2) 6 sided dice.

    TOURNAMENT TOKENS

    Victory Tokens: These are earned within each game according to the victory objectives listed in Young Grasshopper’s House Rule document posted below.
    Time Extension Tokens: These allow a player to extend their base time restriction by 5 min within the game, if unused they give team members extra tickets for the prize table.
    Game Round Tokens: These will be assigned to teams when they have played a full game round during Saturday and Sunday games.



  • PRIZES - PRIZE TICKETS - THE PRIZE TABLE

    All participants on teams that advance to the medal round games will receive a copy of HBG’s WW2 alternate universe strategy game “AMERIKA”. There will also be Gold medals, Silver medals, and Bronze medals handed out within each division. All prizes for medal round finalists, and prizes listed and reserved for the prize table are only for those participating in the tournament.

    There will be an assortment of “stuff” on the prize table from our tournament sponsor Historical Board Gaming, as well as many types of items from members of the Axis & Allies community including IPC chip sets from IWNGU. Items on the prize table will be given away by drawing tickets from a jar, those that have their ticket drawn may approach the table and take which ever item they wish. This process will continue until all items are gone.

    Every participant registered for the tournament will receive one prize ticket to be placed in the prize jar before the tournament begins. Plus, each player will get one prize ticket put in the prize jar for each victory token their team claims during the regular round games. Also, at the end of the regulation round games on Sunday night just before the prize table drawing begins, each player will get one prize ticket put in the prize jar for each time extension token their team saved during regular round games.

    Fortunes of War: New Research & Development Rule

    Research rolls are no longer used to develop breakthroughs, instead, a system called “Fortunes of War” will be used where nations get free development rolls when victory objectives have been achieved. Once a victory token is gained, the nation with the corresponding (*) instructions listed with each objective will choose a breakthrough chart, and make a free “Fortunes of War” roll with the resulting breakthrough taking effect immediately after their turn has ended. Any breakthroughs gained by the UK regardless of which side of the map a token was achieved will effect all UK purchases and all UK units on the board.

    Modifications to oob breakthroughs are in red italics, Paratroopers have been replaced with Super Carrier Decks, and breakthroughs among the 2 charts have been re-positioned for balance.

    YOUTUBE VIDEO EXPLANATION: FORTUNES OF WAR https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U5UwkUy0FOo

    Breakthrough Chart #1

    Heavy Artillery
    All artillery now support up to 2 attacking infantry and/or mech infantry each

    Long-Range Aircraft
    Maximum movement range for all air units is now increased by 1.

    War Bonds
    During the collect income phase, roll 2 dice and collect IPCs in the amount shown on the highest roll. (For UK war bonds, Calcutta will gain IPCs from the lowest roll, London will gain IPCs from the highest roll).

    Blitz Tactics
    Mech infantry now attack at 2 or less if paired with a tank as well as artillery, they may blitz without tanks, and they may tow 1 artillery unit each during the non-combat movement phase.
    Breakthrough Chart #2

    YOUNG GRASSHOPPER’S G40 MINOR ADDITIONS

    YOUTUBE VIDEO EXPLANATION: MINOR ADDITIONS https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HE7-uEaPk2Y

    Payload & Navigation Modifiers

    The +2 damage bonus for each strategic bomber during strategic bombing raids is now distributed like such…

    +1 Damage - if the strategic bombers rolling for damage have departed from an operational airbase.
    +1 Damage - if the strategic bombers rolling for damage did not encounter an enemy interceptor.

    Spoils of War Restrictions

    When a capital is captured for the first time, all cash on hand will go to the nation which now controls it, however, each time the same capital is captured after the first, all cash on hand will then go to the bank.

    Civilian Recruitment Bonuses

    When a capital is captured for the first time, the nation that now controls it will immediately place 4 free infantry units on the capital city that they just captured. Also, when a capital is liberated for the first time, the nation that originally controlled it will immediately place 4 free infantry units on the capital city that was just liberated.

    These free units may not move in the non-combat movement phase within the same turn in which the capture or liberation took place. Eligible capitals cities include: Washington, London, Paris, Berlin, Rome, Moscow, Calcutta, Tokyo, and Sydney.

    *Contrary to what the video explanation said, the French 12 IPCs worth of units for liberating Paris is still in the game which will not replace but compliment the Civilian Recruitment Bonus for liberating a capital._

  • Hello everyone,

    I want to let you know that there will be an announcement soon on my YouTube Channel, and to the Axis & Allies community that the venue for Grasshopper’s G40 Invitational, as well as the WAR ROOM demo game hosted by Larry Harris, has moved from the FMGCON in Oshawa to the T6GCON in Toronto (the Toronto 6ix Sided Gaming Convention). This happened because of the limited space provided to us by the convention in Oshawa, and the fact that we couldn’t accommodate the many people asking to join our tournament. Therefore, due to the overwhelming demand, and the impossibility to expand, we ultimately decided to rent our own venue and form our own convention.

    This is great news for our team and for everything we’ve been wanting to provide the Axis & Allies community, as we now have a Legion hall that is spacious enough to accommodate all those hoping to attend. This new venue is called the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 13 located in the Beaches area of Scarborough which is much closer to Pearson International airport. It has more than enough space to allow us to reopen registration for the tournament, and for other Axis & Allies related events we are currently working on. There are just too many positives about this transition to list right now, but I assure you… our team is organizing and preparing a world class event featuring the past and present game designs of Larry Harris Jr.

    As for the G40 tournament, we are completely starting over in regards to all previous team rosters, simply because of the tournament format that will now become 2 on 2 thanks to the available space at the new convention hall. We will now run 2 separate tiers for experience level called the Hobbyist tier, and the Enthusiasts tier with separate Gold, Silver, and Bronze medal championship games for both. I understand that this is mind blowing considering all the planning and preparation you guys have had with each other, but this is what most participants asked for right from the beginning, and we are glad to make the changes. Therefore, all team rosters are now void, and I am now accepting submission requests for new team rosters with no more, and no less than 2 players per team. However, I will of course help find teammates for all those flying solo.

    The dates of this event remain September 23rd, 24th, and 25th with all 3 days running from 9AM-11PM, and with all 3 days at the same venue of course. It is with sincere regret that we must hold T6GCON on the same weekend as FMGCON due to so many international travellers with prepaid flights already booked. It is absolutely not our intention to hold our future events on the same weekend as FMGCON or any other Toronto area gaming convention for that matter.

    If you have preregistered on the FMGCON website in order to attend Grasshopper’s G40 Invitational, or the Larry Harris WAR ROOM demo game… than you will receive an email from us soon requesting your instructions on what to do with your paid preregistration fee. It will be our top priority as an event team to make that transition for you as effortless as possible. Remember, this only effects those that prepaid for entry into the Axis & Allies tournament at FMGCON, and the Larry Harris WAR ROOM demo game.

    As for those that now wish to join Grasshopper’s G40 Invitational with your own 2 player team, spots are now available for you to do so. If you have contacted us in the past but were turned away due to limited space, than please reconsider attending. Preregistration will be available on the Cliffside Bunker website very soon, but for now… just send me an email at (cliffside bunker @ outlook. com) explaining your intentions to attend. Also, we are currently looking at the possibility of organizing an Axis & Allies WAR at SEA miniatures tournament, as well as an Axis & Allies 1914 WW1 tournament (both of which are not yet confirmed).

    I would also like to announce 401 Games as our new official 2017 sponsor for the Cliffside Bunker, and the “Toronto 6ix Sided Gaming Convention”… A big shout out to the staff at 401 Games in Toronto, Canada.

    Please let me know if you have any questions, or if you need any additional assistance.

    Sincerely
    Young Grasshopper & the Cliffside Crew

    Thanks Surprise Attack, that would be a tremendous help.



  • I read about a 1914 tournament…

    That sounds like fun, if/when you confirm it, sign me up for it.

    I can bring a copy of 1914 to help supplement and 2 Extra Boards. I could also split my pieces and have 2 Copies. I would also like to help setup on Saturday and Sunday Morning, as I have memorized the G40 setup as well.

    Hey Buddy, so glad to hear that you’re coming in for this… it’s definitely better than the humiliation that will be forcibly put on you during freshman week (good choice brother). It looks like the 1914 tournament is a no go, not enough interest at this point in time and too close to the event date to organize. The G40 tournament will be our focus, are you in for that?



  • Aww…. but yes im ok with G40.

    Had to put you in the Hobbyist field with Teflon… don’t worry, there will be more than enough competition for you guys there. and all remaining teams to enter experienced or not will go there, so it will still be a challenge for you guys to move on to the Monday games.
