2018 Tournament Format Single Elimination with Mulligan

The first round will consist of a mulligan round on the First Saturday and Round 1 on Saturday with players playing the same battle versus the same opponent, one game as the Confederate and one game as the Union. If you win both games in the heat you advance. If both players win once in the heat, the winner will be (1) the player capturing the most flags in both games; if tied, (2) the player killing the most figures in both games; or if still tied (3) decided by a die roll. Winners of a either round 1 slot are eligible to advance to Round 2 on Saturday at 11AM for single elimination play. Play in either or both sessions.

The second and succeeding rounds will consist of a single game against a random opponent. While the GM selected what he feels are balanced scenarios, some may feel differently about certain scenarios. If both players want to play the same side, the following bidding procedure will be used. Both players will roll all the battle dice. The player who rolls the most crossed sabers will bid first; if the number of crossed sabers is tied, re-roll until there is not a tie. What you are bidding is the number of card discards you will give your opponent so that you can play the desired side. Zero is a valid bid. When a player does not want to raise the bid, the bidding is over and that player takes the other side and is given the bid number of discards which he may take during the game. A discard means that he may at any time during his turn discard a card from his hand (maximum of once per turn) and replace it with a new card from the deck.

The battles will be:

  • Round 1 Mulligan: New Hope Church
  • Round 1: Chickamauga
  • Round 2: First Bull Run
  • Round 3 (and as needed): Glorieta*
  • Round 4 Semifinal: Ox Hill
  • Round 5 Final: Shiloh

All scenarios (except Glorieta) can be found in the second edition (150th Civil War Anniversary) BCY rule book. The second edition is the default edition, but efforts will be made to accommodate owners of the first edition, particularly in the early rounds. *Glorieta will be provided to players who make it to Round 3.

There will be a time limit of one hour per game. Games not finished in one hour will be subject to adjudication
