In case some of you are asking, only wave1 models will be allowed for the tourney ;-)

However, those who win their wave2 models in the earlier tourneys are free to bring them along as bragging rights ;-)

What are the time limit per match? Official tournament rules are 75mins per match, and do we have a tournament coordinator/judge for these events?

Some quick updates...

1. Time per match will be 60 minutes. Players will be given 15 minutes in between matches to move tables and set-up. *Remember: On time's up, if neither force is completely eliminated, the player with the most squad points remaining wins. in the event that both players have exactly the same points, the player who did not have the initiative wins.

2. Due to space constraints, we will now be capping to 18 seats at ALL venues. This means the first 18 to register will get to play. All others will go on the reserve list.

3. We will be calling for payment next week, before the first "run". In the event of non-payment/or drop out, those on the reserve list will be upgraded upon payment, also according to who registered first.

4. On the day of the event itself, those still on the reserve list are welcome to come by. They will be upgraded in the event of "no-show" of any confirmed player(s). No payment is required if they do not get upgraded. *Note that those who are "no show" will not be entitled to a wave2 model (they will still get a model, but from wave1).

5. So as to preserve fairness to all competitors, any player who does not play all 3 games will not be entitled to a wave2 model. No exceptions. You just gotta earn the model!

6. We reserve the right to give additional incentives and bonus/surprise prizes/etc :-)

That's all for now.

Since it is now capped to 18, PLEASE register asap. There will not be any penalty if you decide not to drop out when the fees are due...

Hey Edwin, the Kessel Run event at Boardgames Depot was fantastic.

Btw, this has come to my attention that we are supposed to be using the official Kessel Run scenario squad list provided by FFG for the final rounds players who are using the Wave2 ships to battle it out. Can we use the FFG KR list instead, this will save alot of time. Do let me know. Thanks

Unfortunately we actually did the 1st run BEFORE the official worldwide event date so we did not have (and I still have not received!) the Kessel Run scenario details!!! We only received the models straight from China... no posters, no tourney info, no scenarios, which we are told to download from a secure site at FFG but until today, I cannot download the scenario file...

Anyway, since you found it, yes, we should use it going forward ;-)

:: KESSEL RUN UPDATE ::

To-date, our rookie and veteran pilots have completed 2 "runs" with Jade winning the 1st run, and Qi-Shaun winning the 2nd run.

So far, its 2-0 for the Rebels, and the Empire is now calling all its best pilots to come for the 3rd run this Saturday...

Jade won the 1st run with 3 X-Wings (2 Rookie Pilots + Garven Dreis) + 1 Y-Wing (Dutch Vander/Ion Canon/Proton Torpedo), while Qi-Shaun won the 2nd run with 4 Y-Wings (2 Gold Squadron Leader/Ion Canon/R5 Astro + Gold Squadron Leader/Ion Canon + Dutch Vander/Ion Canon/R5 Astro).

For the final match, both winners played and won with the Falcon + 2 A-Wing combo (with the 2nd run following the pre-set list from FFG).

Clear your calendars and make a date this Saturday at Toybox to change the destiny of the Empire...
