    @siredblood:

    All teams will play 9 rounds, starting at 10:00 a.m. and have until 11:45 p.m. to complete.

    Since I know you can play a round in 45 minutes Sired, you can probably catch both Brittany and Celine in one night!!

    My next video will provide more info.

    I'm already at 13 subscribers!  (small steps)

    One of my next videos will have something I've done that everyone I've shown thinks is pretty cool (haven't seen it on any other channel.)  Tune in to find out!!



  • If the Allied Powers control the Philippines for the entire game, when does The United States get their FOW research roll?



  • @Screaming:

    i don't think they'd get a FoW in that case they'd just get an extra point at the end of the game if phillipines had never been taken



  • do you need to have a partner for this or will teams be randomly assigned?


  • 2017

    A lot of players like to come with partners, but for those that don't have one, players will be grouped into teams.  Teams will be assigned enough in advance for teams to discuss strategy.  For Toronto I played with Surprise Attack from New York.  We talked quite a bit and even played each other several times on Triple A on the forums.


  • 2017

    Hey guys!  Been working quite a bit and been away from the forums.  I've decided to simplify the rules for this tournament.  After a lot of thought and consultation with others, I'm making Victory conditions for both sides, much closer to OOB rules.  In addition I want to incentivize teams to take and hold while not allowing their opponents  to get points to help them out in tie breakers.

    This is all out war!  Their will be no mercy!!


  • 2017

    Last week I went to a coordination meeting for Meeplecon where we're holding the tournament.  They have a total of 600 registrations available and have already sold a little more than 200.  Please register so that you don't miss out.



  • Ram, I gotta play in this, bro.

  • TripleA Admin

    I really need to do better with my events page, especially events run by members.


  • 2017

    You should come!


  • TripleA Admin

    I'm considering it but I don't really play G40. Will there be any other A&A or Scythe maybe?


  • 2017

    lay out fortress America FF its easy to lose as America in 3 hours 😉



  • You should show, just think of all the Celebrity photo shoots you could be in, I saw Elvis the last time I was there and a bunch of others


  • 2017

    Alright guys, 2 months away!  Need to update some players on list and start assigning teams/opponents!

    Sired Blood is going to be our Master of Ceremonies and rules guy!


  • 2016

    Hey there! Thanks for organizing the event. I'm very happy to see you've shifted away from the victory token idea. What about the rest of the Young Grasshopper rules? Does this mean no free R&D? No free timeouts? What if anything are you doing to balance the game – bids? Balanced Mod 3.0? Etc.

    At one game per day in a three-day tournament with up to 20 teams, how do you decide on a winner? E.g. what if you have two or more teams that have won all three of their games? Seems a bit heartbreaking to lose on tiebreakers to someone you've never had a chance to get matched up against.
