I have a copy of the Master Rulebook for SFB, and I want to learn to play. (Learned from Basic Set, aaaages ago... must have been... Commander's edition? the box set had a Federation CA zapping a War Eagle on the cover...) so I'm familiar with the very basics.

Which rules are used in the tournament subset of SFB? (By rule number, if possible)? Or is there a web page listing which rules (by number) are in use?

Be simpler to get a list of what isn't used --

Main thing that is used are Tournament Cruisers ----
There is a Tournament Module with the SSDs ---

Terry,

You could alwys order a Basic Set rule book and a Module TR Tournament Reference pack.

that would give you exactly all the rules needed to play the tournament.

As much as I hate to disagree with 'dad, Terry said he already has the SFB Master Rulebook, ergo getting those two rules books would be highly redundant.

Instead, I recommend getting the Tournament Wars module. It will have the tournament ships, the tournament scenarios, and will explicitly list all rules used in the tournament. Granted, the tournament ships have likely been superseded since Module T was published, but you can download the replacements easily enough.

That's true... he does have all the rules already, so it would be redundant. I was just thinking about ADB's bottom line... Wink

Module T has counters, a map, ship SSD's, and tons of tactical notes. It would be a great companion to the MRB-- though newbie players used to make fun of the color blobs on the map back when I would teach the game. Those comments went away when I started using the all-black map in Basic Set.

Out of curiosity, has anyone ever come up with a method of converting/balancing out other classes of ships against each other for use with the Tournament rules?

Like Tournament Frigates or Destroyers?
