CMAK - Quick Tourney - Heads Up


Recommended Posts


Last year a few great designers and myself organised a quick play tourney using CMBB.

Read the first few messages on the following thread to get a feel how we ran it.


We are now in the early stages of preparing a new tourney for CMAK along the same lines.

If you are interested keep popping back as we will be taking signups when design and testing work is complete.

In the meantime I just need some feedback on players interest?

I am very interested and I have no problem doing 6-10 emails per day (most days)...

I would prefer Italy, say something along the lines of Franko's "Rush of Jousts", but I am willing to play in any CMAK setting...

Hi Gents,

Thanks for the Interest, it really is only designed for those that can meet the strict requirements. This way we get it completed quickly and keep the tourney fresh.

So for those that can not keep the pace required then it perhaps is not your thing.


The design is being worked on and the battles will be a challenge but not too big. Points might not be in the 500 region (could be more).

Like last time we shall keep to different time zones so players stand a chance to TCP IP the games. It should be possible for players to keep on top of the turns one way or another.

I will keep you updated as to progress.

We still have to test the games and once that is done we should be ready to go in October.

I just wanted to see if it was worth doing all the work.

There seems to be enough interest so we will crack on and keep you informed as to the start date.

The last tourney got few to none European players so we had to run it for those in the US time zone. This was so that players could play TCP IP to help speed up the process.

I will be doing the same again and only players in roughly the same time zone will be matched against one another.

More later.

Update on estimated date - End of October for start, sooner if we can perfect the scenarios quickly.

I will need some help as I will be on holiday for two weeks in Nov / Dec.

So if there is anyone out there who wants to playtest OR do some chasing while I am away I would be grateful.

Ahhh Thin Red Line....


Good name.


BTW Debs Enjoyed the Choclates and the wine is for us this weekend in celebration of our 6 years together.


Now for news on the Tourney the designers are still working their magic and then we have to do some play testing to just make sure it all hangs together.

I would hope we could get a start at the end of this month if all goes to plan.

As mentioned earlier I wanted to see what interest their was before the designers started as we did not want it for nowt...


I will keep you all updated as and when I have some news.

I will be away for a two week holiday at the end of Nov / start of Dec and could do with someone who would hold the ship while I am away.

All it would be doing is ensuring their were no slackers as I check every week to ensure that people are on target to complete the games and there have been no drop outs.

Any takers give me a shout via e-mail.
