Our every-other-Thursday night schedule places will place two of our events in January, one on the 10th and the other on the 24th.
January 10th, 5:30 PM
No Man's Land - Month 2: Wayne Manor
300 pt. Sealed. Customers must buy 6 single boosters from Batman: Streets of Gotham
and construct a 300 point team from those pieces.
The purchase of those 6 single boosters (between $20 and $21)
As many of you know, the Batman: Streets of Gotham set came to stores in sealed mini-bricks, which included 6 of the single packs and a team pack. People who come to our No Man's Land Month 2 event already have to buy 6 of the single packs. For those who choose to do so, you may buy those 6 by themselves or, if you want the team pack as well, you can buy a mini-brick. In the interest of fairness, though, we won't be allowing players to use any of the team pack figures in the tournament.
1st, 2nd, and a randomly determined Fellowship winner will all get a special Batgirl figure, representing Helena Bertinelli during the brief time she adopted the Batgirl persona during the No Man's Land
The Batarang 3d objects will be awarded as participation prizes to the first 20 players signed up at Heroclix.com (and, of course, who also show up) for this event.
This month's skirmishes will take place at Wayne Manor. As in our Month 1 events, we will
be playing with the earthquake rules.
"QUAKE: At the end of each player's turn, that player rolls 2d6. On a result of 3 or less, replace this map with the Wayne Manor (post-quake) map. Characters are placed in the same square they currently occupy on the new map. Any character that is now illegally placed is dealt one (1) unavoidable damage and is moved to the next closest square(s) it can occupy by its controller."
As with the month one event, all players have to play for one of the 6 gangs fighting for control of Gotham City. Players who already played in our Month One event will continue to play for the same gang to whom they have already pledged their allegiance. Remember: at the end of month 6, the gang with the greatest amount of territory controlled earns a special prize for their 3 top players.
January 24th, 6:00 PM
Marvel Snobs Night
400 points Silver Age Constructed. All pieces must be from Marvel sets. This includes not only figures, but also special objects, relics, resources, and vehicles. All pieces played must be from Marvel sets. This is a Marvel exclusive party. No DC allowed!*
No feats or battlefield conditions allowed.
1st, 2nd, 3rd place, and 2 other, randomly determined players will get to choose from the following 5 prizes:
> The Batman of Zur-En-Arrh LE fig (Batman #101)
> Matches Malone LE fig (Batman #102)
> Mr. Freeze's Gun special object (Batman #S100)
> Suit of Sorrows special object (Batman #S101)
> Batcave/Lazarus Pit map from the Batman OP kit
Yeah, I know it's weird to be giving out DC prizes at a Marvel Snobs night, but that's what we have to give. If you think about it, it is really Marvel Snobs who need these the most. Only through the magic of limited edition Heroclix pieces can a snob learn to love comics from another company.
* Don't fret, though, DC fans. We will be doing a DC Snobs Night sometime in the future.
