100 points Nam
Saturday, May 16, 2020

Legions Hobbies and Games
1130 Perry Highway
Pittsburgh, PA 15237
Registration will start at 11am, and dice will roll at 11:30 SHARP!

$20 Entry fee all going back to prize support or “Legions Bucks” for the top finishers and best painted.

List will be 100 points from the Nam book. DO NOT bring any Riverine formations or units! If you feel daring, you can try to bring a single unit of Patrol Boats. Some of the tables may be set up with some river terrain on them but we are not going to set up table specifically for boats.

Please send your list to [email protected] prior to the event.

Missions will be randomly rolled from the “Random Mission Table” on page 184 of the Nam book. We will not play any of the Airmobile Missions, Upriver, or The Streets.

All rounds will be Nationalists v. Free World.

VP’s will be given to anyone who comes in full (or mostly full) Vietnam era costume or uniform. A groovy playlist of songs will be playing during the tournament for our own private Woodstock. Cliche’ lines from Vietnam War movie will be quoted ad nauseam.

A half-hour break will be between the second and third round. We will order pizza so that it is ready to be eaten at the end of the second round. This will let us get started on the third round as soon as everyone is finished eating. Pizza will be an additional $5 per person. We will have a 15 minute break between the first and second rounds.

Tournament Scoring: Based on Wins, then Victory Points, then strength of opponent, then rock paper scissors.

Round 1 – 11:30-2:00pm
Round 2 – 2:15-4:45pm
Pizza break – 4:45-5:15pm
Round 3 – 5:15-7:45pm

I will do my best to keep everything moving on schedule (or earlier) so that everyone can get home as early as possible.
