Become the top General! Conflict of Heroes PC Tournament Signup
Conflict of Heroes - Awakening the Bear Computer Game Tournament!
Sign up to command troops in a two round tournament scheduled to start in mid-January. Sign up deadline is January 9th.
1. Reply to this email with your name, email address, and country (time zone).
2. You will be assigned to a team of generals. You will be sent your team mate's emails so that you can come up with a team name, discuss strategies, and get to know each other. You and your team mates will play together for a group win or loss.
3. All teams will be told which firefight will be played in round one (it will not be a firefight included with the board game). Within a team, half of you will play as German commanders, half as Soviet commanders. You will be able to discuss strategies with each other.
4. You will be assigned an opponent from another team. You will have 2 weeks to complete the game. You will post the results on the reserved forum thread on BoardGameGeek. http://www.boardgamegeek.com/article/10906223
5. Teams will be assigned victory points for wins only. Victory Points will equal the score differential in the game. Team scores will be ranked, along with the three highest scoring German and Soviet generals!
By running this tournament, we hope that you will get to know the other players on your team. They will include people from all around the world and hopefully you will find new gaming friends for the future.
If you do not own a copy of the computer Awakening the Bear game, you can order a physical copy of the game or instantly download the game! It faithfully reproduces the board game, plus adds dozens of new firefights! Play opponents from around the world or against the AI.
