Hello Blood Bowlers!

The first (hopefully annual) Manchester Mayhem tournament will be on the 1st and 2nd of August 2015.

The event will be held at The Deansgate Bar in the centre of Manchester.

There will be six fun packed rounds, three each day.

General Information

Entry Fee
Entry will be £20.00 but this will include a pub meal on both days.. Please send payment via PayPal to valen_swift1@yahoo.co.uk . Could you select the 'gift' or 'paying a friend' option so I don't lose out on fees please?

Venue & How To Get There
The tournament will be held in the bar of the The Deansgate Bar,

321 Deansgate,
Manchester,
M3 4LQ

There is parking accross the road from the bar that does charge, the easiest and cheapest way to park is at one of the park and ride tram stations in Manchester, travel to Deansgate tram station and you are right around the corner. You can get these trams from both Manchester Victoria and Manchester Piccadilly also.

Accommodation
There are many hotels in Manchester with the closest being the Hilton which is next door, but not cheap . There are Travelodge’s and Premier Inn’s in the city centre though.

Things To Bring With You
A painted team.
Your Blood Bowl board.
Dice.
Templates.
Two roster sheets (one for me, one for yourself and your opponent to refer to).

Rules

We will be using the CRP / LRB 6.0 rules.

The Illegal Procedure and 4-minute time limit rules will not be enforced, though you may use them if both coaches agree. There will be a time limit for games as a whole though, so if you play slowly we may be forced to use a clock or have a result called early.

We will be using the standard "Resurrection" rules: teams remain identical from game to game, with casualties, winnings, fan factor rolls etc. not carrying forward.

Undead or Nurgle teams may not keep 'raised' players from game to game.

Team Selection
Coaches may spend up to 1,200,000 gc on their teams.

Coaches MUST include one Star Player as part of their team. An exception to this rule are Halfling, Goblin, Ogre, Vampires and Underworld teams, who may hire up to two Star Players as normal. Stars can be part of the 11 man roster

You may purchase any other Inducements except Wizards, Mercenaries or Special Play Cards as a permanent part of your team for their normal cost.

If a coach spends less than the 1.2m he will not be entitled to Inducements on a game by game basis.

Skills

The number of skills awarded will be determined by team type.

TIER 1 Amazon, Chaos Dwarf, Dark Elf, Dwarf, Lizardman, Norse, Orc, Skaven, Undead, Wood Elf
TIER 2 Chaos, Chaos Pact, Elf, High Elf, Human, Khemri, Necromantic, Nurgle, Slann
TIER 3 Halfling, Goblin, Ogre, Underworld, Vampire

TIER 1 = 4 normal and 2 doubles
TIER 2 = 5 normal and 2 doubles
TIER 3 = 6 normal and 3 doubles

No one player can ever have more than one skill and stars cannot have skills added

Games and Scoring

The first round will be drawn randomly, with all further rounds using the Swiss system. The overall winner will be the coach with the most points at the end of the day - there will be no final.

Points are scored as follows:

10 points for a win.
5 points for a draw.
0 points for a loss.

Bonus points are 1 point per casualty and TD up to a maximum of 3 on each (therefore a 3-0 on td 3-0 cas would give you 16, whereas 1-0 and 5-0 would give you 14)

ALL CAS count towards your cas score.

Schedule

Saturday
9:00-10:00 - Registration
10:00-12:00 - Game 1
12:00-13:00 - Lunch
13:00-15:00 - Game 2
15:15-17:15 - Game 3

12:00-13:00 - Lunch
13:00-15:00 - Game 5
15:15-17:15 - Game 6
17:30 - Trophies and then home time!

Prizes
There may be some prizes. It depends how much in advance you pay. There will at least be certificates for:

Winner
2nd place
Stunty Cup
Most Casualties
Most Touchdowns
Emerging Star
Best Painted

Cheers
Gavin

Very interested in this. It's nice to see a rules-set enforcing a star player too; these make for some interesting and rarely encountered games.

Put me down on the list mate. Got to pay for Cake Bowl and Pearlies first but I'll be in attendance. Haven't done a northern tourney for a while actually.
