I am happy to announce, that Scotland will be holding it’s first Masters style tournament on 28th September 2013. There is still a lot of work to do, in the 2 months we have to plan this, but we already have a great venue and really enthusiastic player base.
Until this year, there hasn’t been a big enough gaming venue in Scotland to run this kind of event. Highlander Games, in Dundee regularly has 20 – 25 players at their events. This was about the limit, without going to the extreme of hiring something. Common Ground Games opened there doors in Stirling, offering a venue with twenty six 6′ x 4′ gaming spaces, with additional space open for CCG’s, Boardgames and any other games you could conceive.
With the assistance of all the PG’s in Scotland (Michael, Frazer, Est and myself), we hope to run a 32 player event. Starting at 35pts in the first year (to keep it one day in length), we hope to work out any kinks or problems; that might crop up. Then in 2014, with more time to plan; we will ramp it up to a full 64 players 2 day 50 pts Masters tournament. This will hopefully offer another WM/H tournament into the UK calender, along side the other events like UK Nationals and Smogcon. Between Scottish Masters, Warmachine: Tactics and all the events happening in Scotland; it’s a busy time for the PG’s right now…….and I am loving it!
