Hello Wyrdos! Indy Malifaux & Sinclair Games is proud to present Slam at the Ram 2018! This will be an all-day, 4 round, 50ss Gaining Grounds tournament at Indy’s very own The RAM Restaurant & Brewery located at 140 Illinois St, Indianapolis, IN 46225. Come out and enjoy a fun, competitive day of great Malifaux, great beer, and great food! This event will have a $10.00 registration fee payable to the T.O. on day of the event to help contribute towards prize support. This event has 16 slots available on a first-come, first-served basis. If you are planning to attend this event, in addition to selecting “Going” on the Facebook event, please also indicate your attendance with a comment on the discussion section of the Facebook Event Page (https://www.facebook.com/events/544941929294990/). 

The RAM Restaurant & Brewery is being kind enough to give us the space for the whole day under the stipulation that all participants eat their meal during the meal break at the restaurant. If you are signing up to participate in this event, then this stipulation is non-negotiable. The RAM offers a wide variety of excellent food and beer, so you won’t regret it! Snacks and drinks are also available for purchase at the RAM throughout the event. 

Due to the nature of the venue, this is a 21+ ONLY event.

All information pertaining to the Strategies & Schemes as well as scoring and other rules for Gaining Grounds events may be found in the Gaining Grounds 2018 document on Wyrd’s website: https://www.wyrd-games.net/resources

Tables will be preset with terrain along with a layout guide indicating where each piece should be for each individual table AND all the properties, details, and minutiae regarding said terrain (i.e. Height, Cover Benefits, Visibility, Severity, etc.). This is intended to provide fairness and clarity regarding each board for all players and to increase time for actual play during the 2-hour rounds. 

These rules will be followed!

There will be prizes for the following:

1st Place
2nd Place
3rd Place
Last Place 
Best Appearance

We will also be having a charity raffle benefiting The Patachou Foundation which serves after school meals to food-insecure kids throughout Indianapolis.100% of the proceeds from raffle ticket sales will go directly to the Patachou Foundation. To participate you may purchase any number of raffle tickets on the day of the event for $5.00 each. The winner of the raffle will receive a usable, playable Malifaux Miniature painted by two-time GenCon Formula P3 Grandmaster Champion Rich Curtiss! All participants who buy raffle tickets for this raffle will be eligible to win, regardless of winning one of the aforementioned awards. 

Finally, we will have a Joker Flip Raffle. Registration gets you one ticket, each subsequent Red or Black Joker flip in your games will earn you an additional ticket (reported with scores at the end of each round). The raffle drawings will occur after all other prizes/awards have been given out. If you win one of the aforementioned awards, you will no longer be eligible for the Joker Flip Raffle.
