Despite there being 2 months till Skirmish, I am already working on the format and additional aspects of the event. I have made enquiries about chess clocks to several of the chess clubs in the area, as well as written to a retailer of them; see Sponsorship post previously.
The aim is to have the following format:
- 20 players (more if demand exceeds 20)
- 50pts (Divide & Conquer)
- 2 Army Lists (standard SR2012 restrictions)
- Death Clock Timings (53 Minutes)
Currently there is no premier WM/H event in Scotland, it is hoped this will be a test of the format for next year; when this will be over 2 days rather than just one. It’s going to be a gruelling day, 5 games in one day, is not something I would normally contemplate; but then the Scots are a hardy and tough breed.
