SCG States Oct 17/18

As I write this, the final round of our weekend of Battle for Zendikar prerelease events are wrapping up.  What better time than to talk about our next big community event?  We are hosting Star City Games Autumn State Championships in just a few weeks, and are very excited for the new shift in Standard.  The brewers have been convening all weekend, theory-crafting and prophesying what is about to storm the scene.  On our end we have been gathering some of the best judges that the state has to offer and figuring how to give you the best event possible.

Preregister here.

Star City Games has a standard for event payouts based on attendance:
States Payouts
This list is pretty strong!  We are going to be hosting the event in shop this time around, and we will need to put an attendance cap on things.  Because of this, we wanted to give strong incentive for people to preregister for the events.  For each threshold we reach in the preregistration pool one person will be selected at random to win the listed prize.  With a nod to what the organizers of GP’s have been doing, here is our preregistration bonus:

I am super excited, I hope you are too!

 

 

*edit*Finalized after a massive release draft!

Vitae VII

Registration: $15 per player; Players are encouraged to pre-register at Magelings or online.

This is a 7th Edition event.  Game mechanics, Special Rules and FAQ’s from the most recent release are live.  Each player must bring a 1500 point Battle-Forged army.  Armies must have 1 primary detachment; an optional maximum of 1 allied detachment using 7 edition ally matrix is permitted.

Print version of codices are preferred for ease of rules review.

Details:

  • Registration and set up will begin at 10:00 am when store opens.

  • Three, 2 hour rounds, with random pairings (no repeats if possible); with a 15 minute break between rounds.

  • First round begins at 11:00 am.

  • Lunch Break: one hour and 15 minutes (includes 15 minute round break) between first and second round.  If you complete your first round game early you may depart for lunch after your scores have been submitted.

  • Each round will be assigned a round score based on game results, all round scores will be tabulated in order to determine winner for event.  Round scoring will not be used to determine pairing for next round. Round scoring: Major Victory/Tabling= 7pts, Victory= 5pts; Draw= 2pts, Loss= 0 (major victory is considered when a player scores double +1 victory point more than opponent).

  • See “Tournament and House Rules” for more details regarding time limits and tournament scoring.

  • Players are encouraged to bring a tray or display board to easily carry their armies from table to table.

Restrictions:

  • All tables will be pre-set with terrain prior to event.  No deliberate alteration of table is permitted (see restrictions regarding fortifications).

  • Ally rules apply (Battle Brothers, Allies of Convenience, Desperate Allies, Come the Apocalypse)

  • No Lords of War

  • No data slates

  • Fortifications: only Aegis Defense Line allowed (race specific proxies allowed but follow same rules as Aegis).  Players bringing a fortification are permitted to move 1 terrain piece a minimum distance in order to place the fortification under supervision of T.O. and opponent; it is the players responsibility to replace the terrain piece at the end of the game so that is back in the approximate location.

Black (Market) Friday

Make a deal!

It’s our first (annual) Black Friday event, and in true form we want you involved!

We will open at 11am on Black Friday and invite CoMo and all to come in and see YOUR wares! We want the shop to be a community market.

You know it, your wife/girlfriend/roommates knows it. Now if they will say something though is different. You’ve got too much stuff (Tracy calls mine crap!). Stuff you don’t play with anymore. Wouldn’t you like to see it in a good home being enjoyed? Or perhaps you love the haggle but short of holding a garage sale you don’t really get to practice being an aspiring entrepreneur. Well here is your chance.

What can you sell? Board games, crafts, cards (yes, even Magic singles), collectibles, mini’s,… whatever. (Please nothing big like washing machines though, it would be a pain to get in and out of the shop)
What will we sell? We will have a Woot-Off style day of specials all the way to midnight.

Attendance is free and open to all (of course!) and tables will require a $5 donation. We will collect the proceeds and give to the Central Missouri Humane Society. You are welcome to charge whatever you feel is appropriate for your stuff and you keep all the cash! No tithing or any of that! If you need a credit card transaction we will provide that at a small fee to cover our end. If you want a table, please drop Nat an e-mail: nat@magelingsgames.com.

The market will wind down late afternoon so that we can prep for our Friday night games. While the market is going on, we encourage you to demo what you have… show off that awesome game. We will also be running various game demos too.

Support a great cause, your fellow community members and get some holiday shopping in cheap!
