Episode 78 – Running Events (Part 1)

marauderEpisode 78 begins a two episode series in which we discuss what goes into, and how to run events. While this will include tournaments, this is not limited to just that style of play. Over the course of these two episodes (78 and 79) we will discuss the thinking behind running events, how to avoid problems that may pop up and how to make your event more successful.

We will start off by talking about smaller events, on a personal and local level, and then move into regional and finally national level events. We will have guests that include some of the best in the field and hear their thoughts as to what goes into the event and how you come out the other side unscathed!

As usual we lead off with some hobby progress and games played, and devolve into a little bit of arguing about the new Eldar and pricing.

We hope you find this topic insightful, informative and inspirational!

  1. Hi Guys. Have you ever ran a friendly tournament where you use a sideboard? Say 1000 + two units up to 250 each. Some missions you use both for 1500 game standard. Maybe another game you start with 1000 and you have to rescue your by holding an objective. Another mission you play a true sideboard and play 1250 where you get to choose one of the units that complements that enemy. Love your episodes!
