NOVA Open Malifaux - Competitive Primer - 5/28/2011


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!

I would like to announce the upcoming NOVA Open preliminary tournament, which is modeled on the soon to be announced Malifaux Midnight Madness tournament running this year on Saturday at the NOVA Open. This is a 8 person, high competition, single elimination tournament using the TP/DIFF/VP scoring system from the Malifaux Gaining Grounds tournament format.

As an added benefit, 1st place at this tournament will win one of the Malifaux Passes for the NOVA Open, granting entry to one of the Malifaux events. The specific pass will be worked out with the winner after the tournament.

Also of note, the players eliminated during the first round will still fall within the window to register and participate in the Malifaux 25ss Scrap running the same day at Huzzah.

So come out and enjoy a full day of Malifaux!!!

Its going to be a Midnight, "Hard Core" game at the NOVA Open this year. I am cramming it in midnight on Saturday to see how many of those 40K players are up for a real game!

It was actually something that came up during the ride back from Adepticon. Funny enough, anyone who wants a crack at Dixon can come get it here as well! Then again during the Midnight madness at the NOVA Open.

Last update before the tournament.

Competitive Primer has 2 slots left open due to one of the competitors dropping. Come out and test yourself against some of the best players on the East Coast. Winner gets a Malifaux pass for the NOVA Open in August, along with additional prizes.

The 25SS tournament later in the day also has spots left open.
