WAR GAME INVITATIONAL

HERE'S HOW IT WILL WORK:

  • Each of the 4 events (Julius Caesar, Twilight Struggle, Star Wars Rebellion, and War of the Ring) run separately. You will only be playing in one event (tournament) at WGI.
  • For your first game, you’ll be matched randomly and the game begins with bidding for sides (see details in the specific description page for each event (Julius Caesar, Twilight Struggle, War of the Ring, Star Wars Rebellion)
  • There are no eliminations.  You can play in as many matches as you want.
  • The actual structure (single elimination, double elimination, swiss, etc.) will depend on the exact number of attendees and will be announced shortly before the event.
  • Under no circumstances will an undefeated player not have an opportunity to advance.  It is extremely likely that no one will go undefeated during the entire tournament, so you’re probably still in contention to win your event even if you don’t win every game!
