Gamerz in Greenwood, Indiana Slow tourney event
The group in south Indianapolis is hosting its second wave of its Slow Tourney.
Our group is consisting of largely older players with families that just cannot always get out to a play on a weekend event. With that in mind we came up with the Slow Tournament. This event also helps newer players figure out how to play in Steamroller events.
What it is: Each player creates two character restricted 50 point lists at the beginning of the event. From there we post the lists online for all player to see prior to the first day of playing. We then also post what scenario we will be using for that round.
This helps in allowing th newer players time to look at the scenario and opposing lists to develop a plan. This is done each week prior to the day of playing. We play one game round per week.
How can you join? Come to Gamerz with $10 on Tuesday April 24th at 6:00 to register. Playing will begin the following Tuesday night. All of the prize money goes right into the prizes. First and second place get a gift card and the best painted battlegroup gets a $10 card as well.
We plan to keep this event rolling on a regular basis. SO, if you enjoy the idea of this and cannot make it this time keep checking in on us. We will run another soonish.
Next week is the first round of this event. If you are not a store regular and would like to participate please PM me so that I can guide you towards the match ups and scenario list.
I will be posting these this weekend.

Late arrival but wanting to play I will update lists when I get them.
If you want to see the specific lists feel free to go to circlecitygamers.com. I feel it will be a lot less of a cluttered thread this way here and if anyone really wants to look they are available.

It has been a nice paced event with quite a few of our players getting some "aha moments". If you have a newer player base I would recommend this format to encourage them to grow into SR rules. It is not as crazy as trying to figure it all out in a very short and fast before the game round type of format.
