In order to keep to strict times, warnings for ‘half-way’ and ‘15 minutes left’ will be announced. At the end of the set time, please square off your matches and submit scores.

Playing format
• 'New NAF Standard' 26 races (i.e. inc Slann, Khrone and Brettionian) will be eligible for use - I will continue to monitor GW releases and subsequent NAF comments, any changes to tournament format will be noted here, with a likely deadline for any revisions to tournament structure at the start of Feb 2018
• Swiss format after random draw for the first match
• New teams will start with 1,200kgps with which to buy at least 11 standard players after this stars and all other inducements as described in the sanctioned rules (see 1st point) can be purchased.
• For this Tournament Fan Factor is fixed to 5 Fan Factor (i.e. no more Fan Factor can be bought) and is not added to the team value
• Before the first match teams can assign skills as described later
• There should be room for either old style or new style Blood Bowl Pitches.

Please bring…
• Painted team (well at least distinguishable as what your roster says)
• Dice and templates
• Two Rosters, one for organiser, one for you to use in tournament
• Board and dugouts (please bring your own)


Scoring System

The scoring system will be as follows:
• Win 3 points
• Draw 1 points
• Loss 0 points

Tie breakers after final results will be resolved by strength of schedule.

For the Casualties for the Most Cas Award - only those Casualties which count for SPP's will be counted.

Teams
1,200kgp to recruit players, staff and team re-rolls. Team Fan Factor is free and set to 5 FF for the whole day. Fan Factor will not be included in the overall team rating. You cannot use any spare cash from team building to buy more Fan Factor for this event. Stars may be purchased as described in sanctioned rules but only after at least 11 players from a team standard roster have been purchased.
I will publish the full list of inducements in early 2018 based on GW releases and NAF guidance.

Weather
All games will start with perfect Blood Bowl weather. If changing weather is rolled on the kick off table, then refer to the below table rather than standard weather table.

Roll 2D6:
2: Roll a D3: 1 - Sweltering heat, 2-3 – Very Sunny
3-11: Perfect Blood Bowl weather
12: Roll a D3: 1 – Blizzard, 2-3 – Pouring Rain

Skills
Before the 1st game teams may allocate the number of skills listed below to their team, unless otherwise stated there is no stacking of skills.

Tier 1: All teams not mentioned as Tier 2/3 – 6 Standard skills
Tier 2: Chaos, Chaos Pact, High Elf, Human, Khemri, Nurgle, Pro Elf, Slann, Underworld, Vampire – 7 Standard Skills, 1 Double skill.
Tier 3: Goblin, Halfling, Ogre, Lizards with no Saurus*, Underworld with no Skaven* - 8 Standard skills, 2 Doubles skills, non ‘Big Guys’ may take two skills of the allocation i.e. stack one skill, this could include both double rolls if desired.

• Standard skills are those available to a player on a normal result on non-double skill improvement roll.
• Doubles skills are those skills available to a player on a double result on a skill improvement roll.
• No stat increases
• Stars may not be given additional skills
• There is a limit of 4 for the number of times a particular skill may be taken.

* ’No saurus’s/skaven‘ does not include any stars which may play for the team e.g. Underworld Goblins may take Glart Smashrib Jr and still be considered ‘Stunty’

Additional Rules

No Illegal Procedure
This is a fun and hopefully relaxed event, please kindly remind your opponent to move their turn counter.

Oi, who are you?!!
If you are drawn against a team where both rosters contain the same star player both teams may use the same star, one is obviously an impostor and will be found out on the field of glory.

Early Bird Bonus
Unlike the last few years money is required much earlier in the process so for this year my somewhat laissez-faire attitude will be on hold and there will be early bird bonuses to encourage people to get their tickets bought...

Tickets bought before 1st November 2017 will be awarded 3 free Cheerleaders and Assistant Coaches, tickets bought before 1st December 2017 will be awarded 2 free Cheerleaders and Assistant Coaches, tickets bought before 1st January 2018 will be awarded 1 free Cheerleader and Assistant Coach.


Prizes
There will be prizes for 1st and 2nd place and Stunty Cup; there will be a prize for most TD’s and most CAS and I am sure I can find a wooden spoon. Depending on the number of participants the level and variety of prizes may increase. There will also be an ‘International Glowworm Award’ for the legendary (infamous?) 4th place finisher (TBC).

Cheers,
Dave

Will be based on whatever is 'current' rule set as of End of Jan 2018 unless something 'gets broken' all inducements will be available - but I assume not much change from existing so all teams 0-2 but only after 11 rostered players have been taken.

I'll confirm stars list at the end of Jan - any specific questions before that just send a PM.

That made me laugh too - Great mind think a like?!? - I thought with the scrapping the hinky mini-me's, Minotaur calves, etc and just giving people money and skills that it worked :D Did even see your excellent name - reactions to all GW shenanigans??

In a way. But also I was thinking that there was a lot of different styles of tourneys around the country, and that is good. However over the last few years the unusual is becoming the norm. So I thought I'd go "old school" and do it how the GT's used to. Really simple, no tiering, so shenanigans, just 1 skill per game to simulate league progression. :)
