Here’s the last mission needing update for 6th edition. A cleaner version for downloading and printing can be found here.
Sorry for puking out so many missions lately but I was way behind on getting these all updated and it had to be done.
For July’s tournament at the LGS we’re changing up the scoring format. We’ve been doing a massacre, major, minor, draw system and are looking to change it up to a primary, secondary, tertiary, quaternary system. Our current system is more about how thoroughly you beat someone where what we want to try should offer closer matches that are more fun. So, instead of writing new missions from the ground up, which I’m sure I’ll do at some point, I wanted to revise existing ones into the new format.
As I did with Attack and Defend, I’m updating this mission to remove the game turn point conditions and adding end of game win conditions.
I took home the score sheets from the past tournament to evaluate my missions and this one is in desperate need of some balancing. Every match that day except for one ended in a massacre. The biggest problem was the single objective, almost guaranteeing the first to it would score a massacre. The big change below is adding the ability to score for holding table quarters. I figure this should help offset getting second turn or just not being fast enough to reach the center objective first to hold and defend it. I also raised the massacre requirement to 3x your opponent’s score instead of 2.5x their score.
