The Gate of Minas Tirith was broken; in rode the Witch King of Angmar. None could stand against him. None save Gandalf the White, who alone barred his way. The Black Rider lifted high his sword and flames ran up the blade. And at that moment, far away, sounded horns, horns wildly blowing. Rohan had come at last. Take an army of Mordor, huge beyond counting, or one of the West, fighting beyond hope with spears shining in the morning. New players are welcome, the rules are quick to learn, we do encourage you get a quick practice game in beforehand in one of the 1 hour Triumph Demos!

Tournament Schedule

TRIUMPH! - Not toKnight Baby
Wednesday, 7PM - 11PM
Scale: 15mm, Rules: Triumph! 3 rounds
Unlimited players
A world of caution without those impetuous Knights! Rules: TRIUMPH! Eligible armies cannot have any stands of Knights and must be comprised of 48 or fewer points of stands from a Triumph! army listed on Meshwesh. http://meshwesh.wgcwar.com.

GM: Spencer Ginder and Rod Cain

Thursday
Grand TRIUMPH! - Doubles Challenge
Thursday, 1PM - 11PM
Scale: 15mm, Rules: Grand Triumph! 3 rounds
Unlimited teams of 2 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) as listed on http://meshwesh.wgcwar.com.
Teams are responsible for bringing their own armies and terrain.
GM: David Schlanger
