steamroller-2

Hello!

Celebrate this game and help us grow our community!

We host Steamroller events every two months that focus on:

  • Game Play
  • Sportsmanship
  • Painted Models (we don’t have a painting requirement, but do have a prize for “Best Painted Army“)

If you have any questions, please send me an e-mail!

All are welcome to come and play!

Regards,
Roy Kim

HOUSE RULES:

A. OUTSIDE INTERFERENCE:

*Spectators are required to remain silent. If you see a rules infraction, please stop the time clock involved and request a Judge intervene. To prevent  “helping” (coaching), any player  may request any other player NOT WATCH their game

B. WAR ROOM PERMISSION:

*Please ask your opponent if they will allow you to use the War Room App. If they refuse, please respect their wishes and use your cards. I am fully aware of what is written in SR2013 on page 1, with great respect what I would like you to do is read what is on page 10.

C. WIZARDS EVENT REPORTER (WER):

*As a time saving measure, we will use WER to handle all of our pairings and build our standings. We’re interested only in Match Wins and will use standard Steamroller Tiebreakers only to determine a Match Winner if its ever in doubt. To build our standings, WER will use Match Wins and then Strength Of Schedule as a Tiebreaker.

D. FIRST ROUND PAIRINGS:

*For the First Round Of Play Only, we will do our best to make sure you won’t get paired up against a family member or someone that you travelled here with provided both of you travelled here from a city/town other than Edmonton or one of its neighboring communities. Please note: after the first round, we will follow the documentation that PP has set out for us. We do this as a service to our players, some of which travel several hours to play here.

E. BEST PAINTED ARMY VOTE AT THE BEGINNING OF THE EVENT:

*Special thanks to Darrell D for suggesting this great idea! We will have a vote for Best Painted Army at the start of the event! All players are welcome to introduce themselves and meet all of the other players then vote for the person who they think has the best painted army.

F. PLAYERS GIVEN THE BYE:

*If we have an odd number of players, we will be awarding a bye each round to the lowest ranked player (Round One, the Bye will be awarded at random). Players who receive the Bye will get a Match Win and a Vote For Best Sportsman.
