Can we please keep the number of identical posts down? I'll leave it here and in "News", but three is a bit much.

Patrick, exactly what is the cost of entering and playing. I went to the convention site and wasn't quite sure after looking at everything. If I am able to get away, it would probably only be for Saturday.

Mike,

http://honorcon.com/registration/register-here

this is the specific link.

The minimum price for the convention is the Enlisted Ticket coming in at $50. I don't see any 1 day discount options unfortunately.

We are still working out prizes, so we may have a small entry fee for the tournament, $5 most likely. This will depend on the level of support we get. I am looking forward to a good time.

Pat

Bolo,

That would be great if you could make it. I am really hoping for a robust Fed Com Tournament. I heard Origins was a bit of a disappointment with only 3 or 4 people showing up to the tournament. Bring friends. Which game shop does he run? I want to promote this through the game stores down there.

Check out the link for a list of the game tournaments we are planning on.

That's too bad about FC at Origins. How was the SFB turnout?

FED COM TOURNAMENT RULES:
The basis for the Federation Commander Tournament is a squadron-level engagement involving three to four ships. Players will be randomly paired against each other.

BATTLE SQUADRON SELECTION
Players will select their own squadrons, which must be
consistent with the rules herein. Ships will be in Squadron Scale.
Each player must construct his force from ships belonging to
a single empire. There can be no more than four and no fewer than
three ships in the squadron, and no more than two of a given type
(e.g., DW, FF, CW). The total value of all ships in the squadron must
be 425-450 points. No battleships, ships from Communique, ships from
Briefing #1 or #2, or ships from Captain's Log may be included in the
force (unless they have been formally published in a product).

The force may include no more than two "leaders" (DN, BCH,
CC, NCC) of different types, no more than one of which may be a
dreadnought or heavy battlecruiser. The remaining ship or ships can
be any available to the selected empire so long as they are not
otherwise prohibited. The WYN PBB and CA are also considered leaders.
Tholian forces can include no more than one ship equipped with web
casters. Hydran forces can include no more than eight Stingers; you
can leave some hangar bays empty (and no, you do not get free
shuttles to replace missing fighters).

Players must present their squadron to a tournament judge for
approval (and to start the record keeping). Try to arrive a few
minutes early, or get your squadron approved in advance. Once the
squadron is submitted for the tournament, the player cannot change
any ship on subsequent rounds. He may, if he wishes, withdraw from
the tournament and reenter with a different squadron paying a new
entry fee, but his record will then start over.

WINNING THE TOURNAMENT
There will be 3 rounds played over the course of Saturday (NOV 2). The player with the best record after the three rounds will be the winner of the tournament. If two players have the same win/loss record then there will be a playoff round to determine the winner.
