For your scenario events I can loan out Gilgamesh Sumerians. I also have Gasgans which is the same list used for Zagros I believe. Let me know and I will bring.

Saturday

Grand TRIUMPH! - Doubles Challenge
9am– 6pm
Rules: Grand Triumph!
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.
GM: David Schlanger


TRIUMPH! - Bronze Age Chariot MegaTheme Tournament
7pm - 11pm
Chariots! - Lords of the battlefield. Join us for this themed event celebrating the rise of the Chariot.
Rules: TRIUMPH!
15mm, 3 rounds, Unlimited players
Eligible armies must be comprised of 48 or fewer points of stands from a Triumph! army listed in the Cradle of Civilization, Assyrian Empire, Chariot Supremacy, or Sea Peoples Invasions thematic categories on Meshwesh. http://meshwesh.wgcwar.com
Some loaners available.

I have my hotel room booked. This looks great.

I have two GT armies based so I would be interested in playing if I had a partner, with my army or theirs.
