Finally posting after lurking for almost a decade now. Hi everyone.
There’s going to be a Revised (2004 Edition) tournament at the WBC tournament this year (It’s an annual boardgaming/wargaming tournament/convention. They typically play Avalon Hill and GMT games.).
The tournament is going to be from Friday, July 21 (Preliminaries) until Saturday, July 22 (Semifinals/Finals). The convention itself is continuing for the rest of the week (July 22-30).
The format uses a unique ruleset to make the game playable in a limited amount of time. I can post the rules if you’re interested.

Time Limit: 4:30 hrs Standard Bidding.
The determination of who wins a tournament game will be based upon the control of Victory Territories (VTs). The Victory City method of determining a winner will NOT be used. Each side controls 12 Victory Territories at the beginning of the game. The Victory Territories are listed below.
If a player holds 18 (or more) VTs for a full round of game play (From the end of a country’s turn to the beginning of that same country’s next turn.), then that player automatically wins the game.
In the event of a VT tie at the end of the game, whichever side increased its IPC total is the winner. If the game is still tied after reviewing the IPC totals, then the GM will make a determination of the winner based upon the game situation at the time the game ended.
If a player chooses to concede a game before it has reached the 18 VT automatic win threshold or the game time limit (4.5 hrs), a default score of 19 VTs and +30 IPCs will be awarded to the winner.

I don’t know the rules for sending email addresses out, so I’d have to PM it to anyone who’s interested.
