    Gearing Up? (Definitive 2016 Tournament Thread)

    Before you skip this thread, I know that some of you might not be in an area that has a lot (or any) CMON events or conventions.

    HOWEVER

    Whether its a once-in-a-lifetime vacation to Gencon or whether you're gathering a few players for the first time for a 4 player round robin, some of the most fun I've had with the game of Dark Age is while playing in out one of the tournament formats.

    THIS THREAD
    is for discussing any tournament experiences you've or set up among your friends, discussion about models or lists you'd like to try or are struggling to get working, as well as upcoming Conventions and Events you're excited about.

    (I will do my best to keep the schedules of the more popular events updated)

    *Note: As a beginner, don't be afraid to at least consider a tournament event if you are attending a Convention. You will notice that CMON may schedule 2 Tournaments (or more) at a given Convention. The first of these is usually a beginner tournament.

    While I understand if you may not yet have the nerves to tackle veterans in one of the more serious tournaments, I HIGHLY recommend you try out a Beginner tournament if able. So long as you know the basic rules, these are usually much more relaxed and a lot of fun (as well as a good way to learn).

    One thing to keep in mind is Immortals is now at the Expo, not GenCon.

    I will still wait for official conformation on this. There is nothing on the CMON site or CMON expo site. I will still hope for the best.

    Well, I saw a post on Samaria in Ashes (the facebook group) from February 2nd. Apparently, according to an e-mail one of the members got from the Dark Age team, the Immortality Tournament is going to be at CMON Expo 2016.

    Still no official word from anyone in charge though, which is extremely irritating. But going by what's available, it sounds like GenCon attendees get screwed out of Immortality :angry:

    It's been confirmed CMON expo, although I am having a hard time seeing any schedule posted of any of their events.

    Confirmation here:

    Yep - the first comment to that post is what he quoted on Samaria In Ashes.

    Hoo-fucking-ray. All that time painting and practicing so far? Wasted. Hours of my life I'll never get back.

    Templecon? Warwick, RI - That's where I first saw this game and learned to play it. I think they've moved it to August.
