Boudica Bowl 5 - The Roman Empire Strikes Back
Placeholder / save the date at the moment, full rules etc to follow
The rules will almost certainly follow the same format as before - 1.1m, skills up front with more on day 2, 10/5/1 pts with bonus points on offer. With a slight tweak to fan factor.
There's a good chance we may return to the first venue (from Boudica 1, the Montagu club in Huntingdon) but I expect to have full details in place by the end of the week.
Update (end of the week, 4 months later.... close enough
The cost for entering the tournament is £15 for NAF members and £20 for non-NAF members which will include your NAF membership. Payments can be made through PayPal to firstname.lastname@example.org
. Please ensure that you include your full name and NAF username and number!
Location:The Montagu Club
Back to where we ran the first event; see the rulespack for details of where you can/can't park.
Usual stuff: Resurrection tournament, Competitive Rules Pack, all 24 teams including Slann, Chaos Pact and Underworld, can be used. Any massive changes due to the BB re-release will be communicated asap.
1.1m for teams. All inducements are allowed, except for mercenaries, special play cards and wizards. Star players are allowed, but you must have 11 rostered players before you can purchase them. If 2 coaches both hire the same star, he will play for both teams
.New for this year
: coaches may not buy fan factor. Instead, coaches will be given free FF based on two criteria.
Early payment: paying for the event more than 2 months in advance gives +3 FF. Paying 1-2 months in advance gives +2. Paying before the day but less than 1 month gives +1.
Painted minis: a fully painted team will give +2 FF. A part-painted team will give +1. An unpainted, or primed only, will get 0 FF.
So every team will have between 0 and 5 FF. Organisers’ decisions will be final.
The Boudica Skills Package is tiered the same as last year; each team will have a number of normal skills to give out before game 1 and more before game 4. These skills must be chosen before registration and marked on the roster with Day 1/Day 2 as appropriate
. No stat increases are allowed.
Tier 0 - Amazon, Chaos Dwarf, Dark Elf, Dwarf, Lizardman, Norse, Orc, Skaven, Undead, Wood elf
5 skills day 1, 2 skills day 2
Tier 1 - Chaos Pact, Elf, High Elf, Human, Necro, Slann
6 skills day 1, 2 skills day 2
Tier 2 - Chaos, Khemri, Nurgle, Underworld, Vampire
6 skills day 1, 3 skills day 2
Tier 3 - Goblin, Halfling, Ogre
7 skills day 1, 3 skills day 2
For the day 1 skills, each team is allowed to trade 2 normal skills for a double skill (up to 2 double skills per team) to add to a player of their choice.
For the day 2 skills, each team will be allowed to trade 2 normal skill allocations to stack a normal skill to a player who has already received a normal skill (not one who has received a double skill).
Boudica Bowl will be a 6 game tournament. The first round will be a random draw, then rounds two to six will be drawn Swiss style.
Points are scored as follows:
10 points for a win
5 points for a draw
1 point for a loss
In addition, teams can gain up to 6 bonus points per match:
1 per touchdown, to a maximum of 3
1 per casualty, to a maximum of 3.
In case of concessions, unless its a valid concession as per CRP (i.e. the coach could not field more than 2 players at the start of a drive) the conceding coach will get -10 points (with no bonus points from the game) and will be unable to claim any trophies at the end of the tournament.
For CAS bonus points and the Most CAS trophy casualties from a Block, Foul, Secret Weapon, Crowd Push or Stab count.
