There are a few House Rules you should be aware of.
  • As we progress through an event cycle, the Fellowship winner selects which figure is awarded for each event. A prize can not repeat until each prize has been awarded once.
  • In addition to Golden and Modern Age, we have one other Age at Rockheads. Silver Age allows any figure regardless of set, but no Feats or Battlefield Conditions.
  • During each round, I will alert players at roughly the halfway mark and when five minutes remain.
  • Bye Rounds will be scored as an average of the rounds actually played. (Example: You score 400 and 600 points, your Bye would be 500 points.)
  • There is a limit of 3 replacement figures per 100 points of the build total.
  • I am amenable to blessing a Theme Team which may not share a keyword if you can present a good case. Being allowed for a Theme Team does not grant any figure a keyword. If you're concerned that your idea for a Theme Team may not pass muster, feel free to contact me ahead of time.
  • Third-party maps (i.e. GridReality, Mighty Maps, etc.) may only be played if all players in the match agree.
  • If an event description indicates "figures," then this means figures with an actual sculpt. Example: If I say two figures must be related, this does not mean you can play Franklin Richards and Mr. Fantastic.
  • For special events, players may pre-register at the store within three weeks of the event. If attendance exceeds available space or product, players will be prioritized first by prior attendance, then by pre-registration.

Fi fi fo fum! On Monday, 16 November, your 600-point force must include one Giant figure! Figures which become Giants through Special Powers are acceptable. Come in and shove a pair of Size-400's up your opponent's tailpipe!

Then one week later, on 23 November, the Hammer of Thor series begins with a two-booster 400 point Sealed event!

-J

RavenProject 11/18/2009 10:14

Now that we've seen the tournament schedule, we've decided to run Sealed events with the following modifications:

1) All Sealed events will be Draft format.
2) All Sealed events will be 400 points. (There's some big guys in this set, would like to see you play them!)

We're running a Sealed match on Monday. We are still discussing with the owner whether additional Sealed matches will be feasible.

See you Monday!

-J

RavenProject 11/25/2009 02:56

After discussing the matter with the venue owner, we have decided to forego the remaining Sealed events in the Hammer of Thor series. (For the record, this was his idea!)

Monday's game will be a straight-up 600-point match, played for the normal Week Two prize. See you there!

-J

RavenProject 12/02/2009 21:01

Coming Monday: Dropping down to a compact 300 points, and throwing down for the Runaways ATA!

-J

RavenProject 12/09/2009 00:05

Sticking with the plan and awarding the Guardians of the galaxy ATA for the 600-point event on Monday, 14 December!

It's the first day of Winter on 21 December, and we're bringing that "delightful" Wisconsin winter to a 400-point Unrestricted battle!

Ice: Every successful attack deals knockback.
Snow: All Clear Terrain is Hindering Terrain for movement.

This is also the big anvil night, where up to ten players will get the silver anvil and the winners walk away with mighty Mjolnir!

-J

RavenProject 12/31/2009 16:06

Our first game of 2010 dials it back a bit -- a 300-point Unrestricted match, battling for the Blood Oath Feat.

(Yah, yah, hush you... it's free stuff. ;))

Also, look above for information regarding our House Rules.

-J

RavenProject 01/05/2010 14:34

Not like we've been holding back the Hammer of Thor figures... but on 11 January we'll be playing 300 Points, 50% Floor. The remaining 50% is Unrestricted.

Still rocking the cardboard a little bit longer as we play for Immortal Contempt, so some out and have fun!

-J

RavenProject 01/13/2010 17:18

Bulk up and prepare your barbaric yawp for a 500-point Unrestricted event next week, throwing down for Gharskygt on 18 January!

If that's not enough firepower, then 25 January will be right up your alley with our Eight Man Megabrawl! Details soon!

-J

Papa Smurf 01/13/2010 17:51

I used to live in k-town. If I am ever there again I will check you guys out.
Thanks for the info.

RavenProject 01/20/2010 22:15

This coming Monday: The Eight-Man Megabrawl!

You can play any eight figures, exclusing colossals, regardless of point total.

Each figure may be assigned one Feat.

Each player gets four actions per turn.

Your score for each round is determined by the following formula:

(Victory Points) / (Build Total) = (Final Score)

So if your team is 1000 points and you KO 800...

800 / 1000 = 0.8

Your final score is compared to your opponent to determine the winner!

Oh yah, winner... First Place and Fellowship will claim the Warrior Madness Event Dial!

-J

RavenProject 01/28/2010 14:46

From the massive manpower of the Megabrawl we're bringing thigns back down to size -- 01 February brings a 300-point Unrestricted event to the maps, playing for the Runaways ATA!

Things step up again one week later, though, with a 500-point 50% Floor tournament for the Guardians of the Galaxy ATA!

-J

RavenProject 02/11/2010 11:39

Crashing out of the sky, an alien craft spread its weapons cache among the debris. When opposing forces arrive to harvest that tech, it's time for some improvised field tests!

Complete instructions will be provided at game on Monday, 15 February. This week's prize is the Warrior Madness event dial.

Don't put those 300- or 500-point teams away just yet, though. There are two games left in the Hammer of Thor cycle, throwing down for the Son of Surtur and Thor the Reigning!
