Sadly this weekend is looking a bit overcrowded and I don't think I can commit to spending the full day on Saturday at this event. Do you expect there to be anyone turning up for casual games?

Hope everyone has a good time at the tournament regardless,

It is looking likely that the tournament will be quite well attended. There is also another event going on at Waylands Forge at the same time. So space for casual games might be quite limited.

I'm happy for there to be casual games if there is room, but I cannot guarantee it I'm afraid.

Are deck lists required, Steve?

If I'm not too rough tomorrow I'll come along. Beer festival tonight may get the better of me though...

Deck lists are not required as it is just a GNK tournament.

The tournament was run using TOME, the new FFG tournament software.

This ranks upon score, strength of schedule, and then extended strength of schedule.

The description for extended strength of schedule fom the TOME documentation is below -

"Extended Strength of Schedule

The player with the highest extended strength of schedule score is ranked highest.

Extended strength of schedule is a new tiebreaker calculated in the same manner as strength of schedule, but it uses each opponent’s strength of schedule score rather than match points."
