9th Age is the quintessential game for you the hobbist and is the natural follow up to 'Warhammer 8th edition'. This game is brought to you by the team at 'ETC Events'. They have released the Version 1 and all 16 Army books. This is all driven by them and are free to be downloaded by the community. This is no imitation, it's the real deal. If you enjoy your games to be intricate and include usable, competitive and varied Army builds. Then this is the game for you.
After this weekends tournament, we already have a few of the gamers who went into limbo with the transition asking when the next tournament will be. If you want to get back into this indepth and rewarding hobby then you can get in contact with me and get added to the tournament register of emails. You can also visit, 1. The NZ 9th Age Page Here. or 2. The Official international 9th Age page Here.
So this year we have a Mini-GuardCon tournament for 9th Age. This is held as a warm up event and the annual edition of GuardCon will be scheduled for later this September. We held a little different format this year and the tournament was divided into two separate tournaments on the Sat & Sun. The overall results for both days was used to calculate the main results for the Trophy.
Great gathering of 17 competitors to the weekend of games. In our smaller tournament venue, it felt friendly and club casual. Exactly the feel and environment we were aiming for. The tournament was run by myself with help from the ACG Inc Club. With the use of 3 Marshals it gave us all the opportunity to play as well and enjoy the weekend.
Marshals: Evert and Josh.
Thank you to all the competitor for coming. Without you guys then we just wouldn't hold big tournaments. Hope you all enjoyed it and will tell your friends to pick the hobby up. We have our next tournament on the way and it's in July. Keep you eyes out for MonsterCon 2016.
