Dead Man's Hand - 50SS GG2016, 5 rounds/32 player, Oct. 22/23, Seattle WA

Recommended Posts

I'm excited to announce our first 2-day Malifaux tournament! Green Lake Games in conjunction with St Andrew's Pub will be hosting a two day, 5 round tournament in Seattle on October 22nd and 23rd. Key data is below. Prize support includes play mats from Sparkle Party Death Mats, mystery boxes and limited editions from Wyrd and more! Guild scrip will be given to the best placed after victory points, as well as best painted as voted by the participants.

As this is the first 5-round tournament in the Seattle area (as far as I'm aware - apologies if I'm wrong!) I want to make things a little easier so the round time is increased, and schemes are available ahead of time to help ease the crew selection process.

  • 50 Soulstones, single faction, 32 players maximum
  • Gaining Grounds 2016 schemes (full breakdown below)
  • All crews must be fully painted, 3-color minimum
  • 2 hours per round
  • Doors open at high noon on October 22nd, Round 1 begins 1pm

Registered! Any advice for those flying in? Hotel suggestion?

There are a number of hotel / motels just within walking distance. They are pretty cheap and basic but reasonably reputable if you stick with a brand name (Travelodge, Days Inn). Other than that, I know a few people are looking at AirBnB.

Just wanted to let everyone know that Green Lake Games (who helped secure the gaming space) will also be sponsoring the tournament with some gift certificates that will be added to the attendee prize raffle! Given that they are just across the street from the venue, lucky winners will be able to take their certificates and exchange them on the day :-)

Additional sponsorship has come from Secret Weapon Miniatures (custom bases!) and Portable Warfare (miniature storage!) for the door prizes.

Also wanted to remind everyone that this is the last week to get tickets at Early Bird pricing: $25 vs $30 come October 1st. There are only 10 spots left so get your ticket soon!
