Whew! What a day! Thanks a million to all those that came. I'm knackered!!

It was a great day though, some great stories. Couple of my personal highlights:

    Nazgob losing a Blodging Ogre to a halfling foul on turn one of game one.

    Merrick taking on my "Make 10 Go For It rolls in one turn" challenge like a hero, even making the last two with Deeproot Strongbranch.

    Watching Hawk manage to pull of a One Turn Touchdown despite me sticking him on two minute turns.

    Wobert, upon hearing that there was a spot prize for the next person to score a touchdown, making a GFI to score... only to fail it on the touchdown line.

    wwe2015's valiant and constant attempts to complete a Long Bomb pass with Orcs.

    Angry Hobbit's Puggy being thrown at Morg, bouncing off of Morg's manly chest and dying.

    Watching Nazgob and Ploppy have an Ogre-off in constant rain.

    Nightwing visibly struggling with the hard decision of whether to foul on turn 16 - despite being 1-1 and having no bribes - before walking it in.

    Watching Monkey Trumpet pitch clear Mawph's Pro Elves - With Goblins!

    Following Merrick's epic 5-0 win with Halflings, somehow managing to pull of five completions with them at the same time.

    Discovering Wobert's Elves had been out-bashing Eth4n's Orcs, who in turn had been out-passing said elves (6 completions from an orc team!)

    Hearing Bert try to come to terms with why his Yhetee had been fouled off the pitch - successfully - by a Black Orc.

    Goading Jip into using Sneaky Git... Or trying to!

    Just... so many Ogres. I think there were roughly 19 Ogre models being used today.

    Declaring that the next spot prize was going to the next person to suffer a turnover on their first action of the turn - then it being claimed literally five seconds after!

    Watching Frogboy go from having Fame +1 to his opponent having Fame +2 - then rolling pitch invasion.

    Crowding round the top table watching Wob and Hawk's immensely tense final match... 4-4, one turn left, Skaven have possession... Then Wob getting a perfect defense!!


The list goes on and on!

Basically, I had a blast, and I hope everyone else did too. I'm well up for running it next year (Orclympics?), so keep your ears peeled. I'll do a proper blog write up thing soon, going into a bit more detail about how the scoring system worked and its implications (if you're into that sort of thing), but for now I'm off to bed...

First Place - Wobert
Second Place - Hawk
Third Place - Leipziger
Fourth Place and International Glowworm Award - Fallingdownjoe
Most TDs - Wobert
Most Completions - Hawk
Most Casualties - Nazgob
Stunty Cup - Merrick
Wooden Spoon - Nazgob
Squishiest Player - Angry Hobbit
Most Impressive Loss - Monkey Trumpet

That is the face of a nazgob who had lost an ogre to a rock before turn one!

Great tournament, but I may use a real team next year. Stupid ogres.

Gorgoroth was saying he'd completed the twenty-four at this one, too.

Fair play chap. I'm only twenty-three behind you!

Ooh, will sort him out with a patch - he should have let me know beforehand, could have sent one along!

Well done all.

NAF results uploaded. Once magic button pushed rankings will be updated.
If you spot any mistakes, check with Twelffy first, then let me know.

Despite 3 wins and a draw I appear to still be on a NAF ranking of 150!

They've only gone up this evening to give it a bit, I think it'll sort itself out.

If anyone interested, here's a bit of an essay of a write-up I did about the scoring etc.

Thank you to Gorgoroth for helping me over the line for most casualties and thank you to Twelfman for a great tournament. Looking forward to next year!

Thanks to Twelfman for organising everything. Thanks to my opponents for the fun - even Frogboy after clearing the pitch of 15 players :( . 14 dead, 2 self inflicted (including Puggy) and Morg in the Knockout box. It may be time to retire this team and bring back the Pygmies.

Excellent write-up! Post-mortem rather than morten :)
