Grand Triumph! Doubles Challenge - Historicon 2019

Post by David Schlanger » Wed Apr 10, 2019 2:50 pm

Everyone, we are having another Grand TRIUMPH! - Doubles Challenge at Historicon this summer on July 13th in Lancaster PA.
9am– 6pm, 15mm, 3 rounds, unlimited teams of two players
There are few glories as glorious as doubles games, where you and a partner compete against another pair of players. Victory is that much sweeter with someone to share it with, and defeat with a partner can lead to blame casting, bitter recriminations, shattered friendships and divorce. What's not to like?!?

So come and participate in the Grand Triumph Doubles Challenge! Grand Triumph is a modification of the successful Triumph! fast-play game for ancients and medieval warfare, where two players on a side run a triple-size Triumph army (144 pts). Teams are responsible for bringing their own armies and terrain.

See the Triumph! online army lists at Meshwesh http://meshwesh.wgcwar.com/home for individual army lists. Use triple the army minimums and maximums if no ally is taken; if a single ally is taken use double the army list minimums and maximums for the main army and a full normal-sized army list for the ally. Teams are encouraged to sign up in advance on the TRIUMPH! forum. There is a long tradition in doubles tournaments of advance trash-talk, and we would like that tradition to continue into the glorious future.

We have set aside much of Saturday with plans for a lunch break. We hope this will be a day of fun for experienced Triumph players or a great opportunity to introduce a newer player to the game alongside experienced ones. All you need is to have your own legal army and preferably a partner.

More details for Grand Triumph are on the Washington Grand Company website including the specific rules for 144 point games.

If you plan to attend, please post here with your team info! (Names and Team Name preferably)

Participating Teams (as of 4/10/2019):

- Two Davids (David Schlanger and David Kuijt)
- Meet the Spartans (Rod Cain and Brian Peruski)

And is this the official pre-game trash talking thread?
