It was fun to run.

Next time around, I'd like to do a painting score out of 6, and games out of 4. I think I'd like to do more points and massage the schedule a bit.

I'll also bring an army so no one has to play against "default", and also get someone to double check my math to avoid potentially embarrassing errors.

People seemed to have fun, there was an 8 way tie for best sportsmanship, tie broken by removing people up for other prizes and then a random die roll.

The lowest sports score was 2.5/3

I'll review with Darren and see if there's any take-aways from his end and I'll get planning for a possible future event (as noted, if we hold one during the summer, we'll need some fans for airflow!)

Thanks everyone for coming out.

Oh, and Randy won the door prize of a large number of White Dwarf back issues from Matt K.

I wasn't there, but looking at the scores I have one suggestion for future tourneys... feel free to rip my idea apart if you don't like it. Wink

If someone wins the 'overall best', they shouldn't be able to win the other aspects too. It helps split prizes around more evenly, which is happier for everyone. Whoevers winning the best overall has allreadd more than gotten their tourney fee back, so why not share the wealth a bit (Example: Adam winning best general and best overall.. give him the best overall and then give best general to next in line).

OK, I'm done, tell me it's a stupid idea. :p I dare ya. Smile

Nope, I agree. You shouldn't be able to win the top prize and best general.

well best general was for the player who went 4 wins 0 lossses

I am the only player to have done that, and the next two players are those who places 2nd and 3rd at "3-1" I believe

The way the tournament was set up, it appeared from the beginning that best general and 1st place would go to the same player unless their army was unpainted and they were a bad sportsman.

If that was not the intention, then best general should have just been 3rd place (as 1st and 2nd get prizes)

Yeah, thats typcially the standard and fairest way. If a player is elegible to win more than one prize, just toss him the better one andscratch him off the list for the rest.

You'll find that in alot of tournaments, the player that does win best overall is probably at the top of right around the top for best general. Ive also been at tournaments where a player has won best overall,best geenral, then walked away with 1 of the 2 door prizes.. its always nice to spread everything around if at all possible.

Ya, that's in the mix for next time.

I'd like to do something a bit different for scoring matches, then I can manage 3 games and 1500 or 1750 point games.

Then I can completely avoid doubling up on prizes.

Best General was intended to be doubled on, but no others were (I only doubled 3rd & painted because of a tie between 2nd and 3rd)
