This may take awhile to get enough interest, but that is fine with me - busy time of year, plus still participating in other C&C Vassal tournaments. I'll keep an eye on this, but if interest doesn't accelerate, I'll get something started with 6 players by the end of the year. 3 signed up so far, but I know I can convince at least three other players :)

I'm new to this forum and to the game system. Having just purchased The Great War board game find the idea of a tournament very interesting and would like to join please. But how does the mechanics of the tournament work?

That makes four five :) (was responding to Chris' post, when Al snuck a reply in!)

Nutshell explanation for the tournament structure is:
-Players divided into two groups; number of rounds in the preliminary portion of the tournament are equal to the number of players in each group

-a player plays a different scenario (round) against each of the players in the other group

-usually the time frame is one week allotted for each round + an extra week - e.g. 6 weeks for a 10-player tournament, 7 weeks for a 12-player tournament; schedule the rounds in any order, just be sure to get all matches played within the time frame

-after all preliminary round matches are completed, the two players from each group with the highest medal totals square off in a two match semifinal round - same scenario twice, highest medal total advances (lowest figure total lost is the tie-breaker), repeated for the final round with a different scenario.

OK thanks for that explanation, much clearer now but what I was most confused about was how were the games going to be played when everyone is potentially so far away from each other. Then I spotted this VASSAL subject and I'm suspecting that's what you will use to actually play the games. So I'll try and load the software and have a go before you get the tournament up and running. If I'm still not with what your about, let me know.

Many Thanks

I think we should advertise the MT on BGG and CSW. Not many will know of this site if they are starting new to this game.

Not sure if I'm writing this in the correct place, but I'm sure you will tell me if that's the case. I've loaded VASSAL to my computer and loaded 'The Great War' module, but I just can't get going with it. I'm not sure the computer version of the game is for me so I think I'll have to say I am not able to join the mini-tournament. On the plus side, I have played the board game version 5 times now. The game is very good and you can a get a game completed in an hour and a half. At first I thought the scenarios (only played the first few from the rule book) were favoring the Germans and the German side won the first 3 games I have played. Now however, I have become a bit more experienced and the attacking British are not so bad; in fact they won our 4th and 5th games (but only just).
