Saturday Star Wars Minis @ the Star City Game Center.
Every Saturday!

Location:
Star City Game Center
5728 Williamson Road
Roanoke, VA 24012

This state-of-the-art facility is capable of comfortably accommodating 300 players, and offers many amenities not seen in your typical game store such as a private Parents’ Lounge and a full-service, in-store restaurant appropriately named, “The Sideboard”.

Use Mapquest (http://www.mapquest.com)for directions to the Star City Game Center from anywhere!

Time:
Registration begins at 2:30 PM Tournament begins promptly at 3:00 PM

Tournament Format:
Standard Scenario - 100 point limit
Victory: At the end of a round, if at least one player has scored points equal to or in excess of the format point limit, the player with the most victory points wins. If both players meet this condition and have the same number of victory points, players play an additional round. The player with the most victory points at the end of the extra round wins. If the players are still have the same number of victory points, additional rounds are played until the tie is broken, or match time runs out (see Section 616).
There are two ways to score victory points:
1) Eliminate enemy models: points scored are equal to model cost
2) Occupy the map center: five points are scored each round that a player ends a round with a model within four squares of the center of the map; ignore low objects and walls when determining this area.

This tournament is sanctioned.

Entry Fee:
$5.00 per player

Tournament Materials:
Players must bring the following items to participate:
• A terrain map (battle grids and terrain tiles may not be used in DCI-sanctioned Star Wars Miniatures tournaments). Players in Limited tournaments may bring multiple terrain maps and choose one to use during squad construction.
• A 20-sided die (d20). Dice must not be especially large or small. Players may not use Spindown™ dice or any dice that have all of the high numbers in a cluster together.
• Tokens or pen and paper for clearly tracking damage, force point use, victory points, and other effects.
• Models and corresponding stat cards for constructed events.

Prizes: The first place finisher will receive two boosters of Rebel
Storm and the second place finisher will receive one booster of Rebel Storm.

Bummer man. Let us know when it picks up again.

How have you been advertising it? Anyone else attempting to run regular events?

I'm hoping it will pick up again. We've got a booklet that we give out in-store that has all our events listed in it, our website and a bunch of assorted forums. To my knowledge there is no one else in the area running it.
