Grand Triumph Doubles at Historicon 2017!

Post by David Kuijt » Tue Mar 28, 2017 2:42 pm

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 blamecasting, 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 joie de vivre, and terrain if they have it -- boards will and terrain will be supplied (although terrain may be limited if there are a lot of teams signing up).

See the Triumph! online army lists at 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.

More details coming soon. Teams are strongly encouraged to sign up in advance here (although they do not need to reveal what army list they are taking). There is a long tradition in doubles tournaments in legacy games of advance trash-talk, and we would like that tradition to continue into the glorious future.

Ask any questions here if you have them. Initial estimate is that games will run in about a 2.5 hour slot; how many games will depend upon how many signups we have, but we're hoping for at least two. It is our intent to support as many teams as wish to play -- all you need is to have your own legal army. More details will be described on www.wgcwar.com/GrandTriumph.html [webpage NOT ACTIVE YET] as soon as we have them up, including the modifications for the Triumph! rules to work for triple-size armies. Probably by the end of the week.

Signups So Far:
  • Two Davids! (David Kuijt and David Schlanger)
I'm sending out a Challenge to:
  • Tim and Wendy Myers
  • David and Gavin Conrad
  • Spencer and Christina Ginder
  • Jonathan and Alex Bostwick
  • Rod Cain and Brian Peruski
And anyone else, of course -- but I know all the above, and my heralds are riding on fast steeds, bringing flowery words of braggadocio and disdain even now, and throwing down the gauntlet at your respective feet. Meet us in battle or hang your heads in shame!!! :mrgreen:

Wendy and I will start planning for Historicon. We will improve on our individual 1-5 record from the Cold Wars tournament (the one victory was when I beat Wendy) to beat the snot out of everyone at Historicon. And to all those we beat - vae victis.

He had to point that out, of course. :roll:

David,
I would be happy to accept that challenge, but I am afraid I have to dig up a partner because I don't think Brian will make Historicon.... :(

Add team "Comedy & Tragedy."
Chris is teaching children's theater camp that week, but we are trying to work out something for Friday.

So the ally links on Meshwesh right now can be difficult to follow, since for Grand Triumph! you need to get back to the FULL ally army listing. If you have any questions about which army listing your ally references, please ask here and we will double check for you. At some point Meshwesh will be enhanced to make sure the link is there and it is clear.

I would have liked to Michael but I have to man my table in the flea market. Besides, I haven't even played a game yet. Let's plan for Fall In. See you Thursday @ Huzzah.
