Mage Wars Wednesdays in Westboro

Bring your favourite 120-point spell book and join us for our organized play night on Wednesdays at the Royal Canadian Legion branch 480 (391 Richmond Rd).  Enter through the left-most entrance and head upstairs.

For more information, join our Facebook group:
https://www.facebook.com/groups/663160520460635/


We're have completed playing through OP Kit 6, "Menace of Ruination" and are now just getting together for "casual-yet-organized" Mage Wars.

See latest post (below) for details.

Prizes include alt-art promo cards.  Points are awarded for match wins (below) and story achievements. 

Date and Time:
- see schedule
- registration: 5:45 pm
- first match: 6:00 pm
- usually play 2 matches
(venue closes at 10:00pm)

Cost:
- $2.50
(to cover the cost of the venue)

We're also considering the occasional weekend tournament if there is sufficient interest.

Scoring:
- Match Win   4 pts
- Modified Win   3 pts
- Draw       1 pt
- Match Loss    0 pts

Match Win: Opponent mage is dealt lethal damage within time limit, or V'tar goal achieved in Domination.

Modified Win: In the event that no 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.  A Modified Win might also be given to a second-place Mage who achieves the V'tar goal in Domination (but doesn't have the highest V'tar score when the match ends).

Draw: If a Modified Win is awarded, the player with the lower Life remaining after Damage is awarded a Draw.

Organized play continues at the Royal Canadian Legion on Wednesday April 20 with Converging Fronts Chapter 1: Favor for a Nation.



Chapter Challenge: "Preparations for War"
Story points awarded to the player who refrains from using Attack Spells the longest..

It is recommended that each player be prepared to play Domination or Arena on a given night.  That is, it's probably a good idea to bring (at least) 2 spell books: one designed for regular Arena play, and one designed for (presumably multiplayer) Domination - although in principle these could be the same book. 

See you at the Legion!
