March Madness: Info and Sign ups
« on: February 04, 2019, 09:07:19 am »
Overview:

Hi so I'm planning on running a Malifaux event over March. The main aim is for it to be a fun, relaxed, and thematic event, that gives you a chance to play the game in a different way, and offer a chance to really 'Master;D your crew/faction, which should be pretty rewarding.

Right now I'm mostly interested in numbers, and factions so I can organise some aspects in more detail. I'll update this post as we progress so watch this space...


Dates:

The idea at the moment is for those taking part to play Malifaux game on Club nights in March.

So this would be the 1st,8th,15th,22nd, and the 29th.       

There is no obligation, to play Malifaux every week, you can drop in/out as you like :)

Games are arranged as normal theres no matchmaking/pairing


Scenarios:

We will use the Story Encounters for change. Rules for these can be found on pg76 in the A4 rule book, the relevant cards are also included in the Schemes and Strategies deck. I can post a summary if its required.

There will be a overarhcing narative to the games, each week will be a different encounter. So for example on week 1 everyone will play Jail break, on week 2 everyone plays Stop the ritual. (more on this later)


Requirements

The requirements for games, are the same as normal i.e models,rules, relevant tokens, decks etc

There is no painting requirement

It would be cool if you commit to one faction, but its not a requirement.

It would be super cool if you could stick to one Master, but thats not a requirement either.

You will be required to post results on the forum, or send to me in person, or pm (more on this later)

Games can be any size.

We will be playing 2ed, you can choose to play 3rd beta if you want but the default choice/expectation is 2nd


Prizes/Rewards

Prizes depends largely on numbers, if there are any they won't be big.

I'll track individual wins to create a leaderboard and have a winner at the end of the month,  points scored from Strats and Schemes will be used as a tie breaker.
You can post results on this thread.

Please record:
Who won
Attacker or Defender Victory
Your total VP from Schemes and Strats
Opponents total Vp from Schemes and Strats
You have a week to post results on the forum, or pm me.

There will be no fixed teams but, the scenarios are all attacker vs defender. The results of games on a club night will affect what encounter we play the next week.
So if we play Prison break and the Attackers win this will be reflected in the encounter we play next week, if defenders won we would play a different encounter. These changes will be purely thematic.

If you have any queries there is another thread where you can post, or feel free to pm me.

Results after week 1attached at bottom of this post

Put me down. Will probably use my Neverborn unless there are too many of us using them, in which case I will use Outcasts, or possibly Gremlins. lol.

Since the attackers scouting mission was foiled, they have been forced to relocate and remove traces of their presence.


Strategy for this week the 8th of March is ‘Destroy Evidence’ pg 82

The evidence was successfully destroyed last week. The Defenders have lost their leads, forced to regroup at base, and plan their next steps. Unknown to the Defenders their enemies are already closing in for a sudden strike.

Stragey for this week the 15th March is 'Sabotage' pg 88
