Fort Buyaki Invitational 40K Grand Tournament

I'm pleased to announce the Fort Buyaki Invitational 40K Tournament to be held on October 8-9, 2011 held in Seacaucus, NJ. The FtBI is part of the 2011-2012 Games Workshop North American Tournament Circuit.  All are welcome and invited to participate in this great event! And I expect to see many of you there!

This event will feature 5 games over the course of two days and will be held at the same site as the Warstore Weekend in cooperation with TheWarStore and TheWarStore Weekend. We expect to have at least 60 players and we are able to easily expand as player demand grows.

The FtBI features Swiss-style pairings based on game play results to crown our overall champion and we offer painting and sportsmanship awards that are scored independently from game play.   We expect all players to conduct themselves in a polite and civil manner and we use a ranking system to recognize outstanding sporting individuals.  The great feature of the sportsmanship ranking system is that all opponents must be ranked from best to least best which creates a clear delineation between players.  More about my thoughts and ramblings on sportsmanship here.

Over the coming months, we'll be rolling out all kinds of information on this blog regarding this event, but in the meantime mark your calendars and work on your army now!
