Looking at all the events it would seem that Saturday should be like Friday's event as they have 32 seats listed.  Not sure it should have been invite only, would have thought the finals on Sunday would be the only invite only as it states it is for the finalists from day one and two.  Someone should ask Patrick to clarify this, I would hate for Saturday to have no participants.

I thought the same but then I saw the invite only so I wrote what was listed.

This is what stood out for me.
" This mulit-day, swiss-style. Entrants must bring a Tournament Legal spellbook. Top 8 will compete Sunday for the Championship. "
When I read that it reads as if this is a 6 round event and 3 rounds are played each day.

If they are the same I will adjust my post.

Does each round start at 4pm or end at 4pm? Also what's the entry fee?

4pm start
did not see fee listed
I would check the excel sheet

I saw that it was finally listed last night. Unfortunately, I also learned that I can't drop events until GenCon starts now to make room for the tournament, so I'm just hoping that there will be an opening left....

It would have been nice to have at least known the time slot(s) to plan to keep open prior to GenCon opening to event sign-ups. Maybe next year you can tell us that much in advance, at least.

I just found it last night. You should be able to join on site with no issue every year we have had about 18-24 sign ups.

Folks,

After meeting with our development team, we have decided that Forged In Fire WILL be legal for the Gen Con Tournament.

The following sets will be legal for the tournament:

Mage Wars Core Set
Forcemaster vs Warlord Expansion
Conquest of Kumanjaro Spell Tome Expansion
Druid vs Necromancer Expansion
Forged In Fire Spell Tome Expansion

If you have any questions, please contact me at patrickconnor{at}arcanewonders{dot}com.

Thanks,

Pat

Awesome. Hopefully we'll see some innovative Warlord builds make an appearance. My Druid's not looking forward to fanning the flames, though!

So all the standard sets and expansions are allowed.  What about cards from the Organized playkits?   Legal?

Those are promo cards. So unless they have been released in an official expansion, no.

Correct

Best thing to do is check the spell in the SBB or check the set lists

I suspect this has been answered before, but could someone please confirm exactly what is meant by "highest remaining life total"? I assume the tie-breaker is life minus damage and not merely whichever player has accrued more damage.

Wish I could make it.  Europe to America is a bit far for the event, though it is tempting.  Perhaps AW will be at Essen in Germany for all us European players?

From the Tournament Guidelines page:

"Modified Win: In the event that neither player has attained a Match Win when time is called, the player with the most Life remaining after Damage (i.e. Life Damage) is awarded the Modified Win. If there is no clear Modified Win, both players will receive a Draw."

So yes, Life-Damage

So.... I can't figure out how to use the BGG site to see the cards in the new set. I am trying to figure out which of my promos I could use since none of the stores in my area can get the expansion.

Does anyone have a list anywhere else?

Thanks!

Thanks! And... I just found a store with it on the shelves. Plan to try a few of the new spells out Thursday night (NE Indianapolis area). Any chance you want to visit? Drop me a note if you like.
