What is the Point of Short Games?



  • Avalon Hill MAKES GAMES.  That is all they do, that is what they want to do, and that is what they make money at (keeping their shareholders happy).

    Places like DAAK, Flames and here determine what is OFFICIAL in terms of playing a Tournament 😄

    …I DO like those VT’s that Craig posted though.  I may give those SERIOUS thought for our next Tournament.

    You are a man of wisdom! 😉

    I am glad that someone has seen the light. 😄

    Although I sort of like Craig Yoper’s territory idea, I would like it a d*** sight more if it were officially recognized and accepted by Avalon Hill as the tournament standard.

    Actually, I would like ANYTHING to be accepted by Avalon Hill as the tournament standard.

    As it is, there are different tournaments, but no OFFICIAL tournament standard.  LHTR is close, but it is not the Official Deal.

    What you want is this:

    It was the place to get “official” acceptance by Avalon Hill for game standards.  Notice it ceased publication when Hasbro bought AH.

    WOTC/AH pays for Greg’s FTF tournaments at Origins/GCI. They consulted Larry on “tournament” rules specifically for this purpose. I’d say this makes LHTR the prominent ruleset.

    Look here for the best FTF tournaments in the country…
