The scenarios will be drawn from the Kings of War rulebook and will be announced at the start of each round. Game Time

Chess clocks will be in use with a time limit of 50 minutes per player per game. The clocks do not have to run during set-up, but must be run during player turns. If a player times out then all of their units are immediately routed and their opponent will receive an automatic win. Rules Dispute

If there is a dispute or rules query then clocks should be stopped while it is resolved. If players can’t agree then they can call the tournament organiser over to make a decision. The TO’s decision is final. Scoring

Players receive tournament points as listed below:

  • Win: 15 points
  • Draw: 10 points
  • Loss: 5 points

After this, their tournament points are adjusted according to the difference in the total value of enemy units routed (their attrition points):

Difference in value of enemy units routed (attrition points) Player with most attrition points adjusts their score by… Players with the least attrition points adjusts their score by…
5-495 +1 -1
500-995 +2 -2
1000-1495 +3 -3
1500-1995 +4 -4
2000 +5 -5

Additionally, players must also report their total attrition points, since these will be used as a tie breaker. Prizes

There will be a prize for 1st, 2nd and 3rd.
