On April 21st Crossroad Games in Standish, Maine will be hosting a 40K tournament, April Assault (temporary name). This past November the shop ran The Standish Standoff, a large tournament with lots and lots of goodies and prizes. The April Assault is a ‘mini’ Standoff and mini only refers to a slightly smaller prize pool and goodie bag but not attendance.
More details will be coming but the game size will be 1,500 and, if I recall, hosting 34 players. The cost will be $25 which will get you lunch as well as some freebies to take home. The format uses mission battle points and soft scores for painting, sportsmanship and a pub quiz. There will be a painting competition as well.
If you’re in the area and looking for a fun day of gaming then you can’t go wrong. There will be a registration prior to the event, as there is limited tables, and once I know when the registration begins I’ll be sure to pass it along.
