Just a reminder about the upcoming Tzeentch Challenge! Blood Bowl Tournament scheduled for September 12 and 13 at Rider's Hobbies in Ypsilanti, Michigan. I know that this is now 1 week after space hulk drops so everyone should be in a board game type of mood.
Rider's is a good location with free parking, it is less than a mile off the highway(US-23), and their are both fast food or sit down restaurants up and down the street a little way. Should be about an hours drive from anywhere in the Detroit Metro Area, Lansing, Toledo, Jackson, Flint. So players living in that region can come for the first day then go home then come back for the second day. Sure it is some driving but it is also a chance to meet other local Blood Bowlers which is great for setting up new leagues and things in the future.
Any Blood Bowl players in the Midwest area (Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Ontario) should come down for 5 games worth of fun.
Rules Info can be found here:
Tzeentch Challenge Rules
This event is not just for Hardcore players. All you need is a board, dice and templates. None of which need to be official in anyway just consistent with the rules. Heck the guy running the event does not even own a copy of the game just uses homebuilt upscaled versions for everything to better fit big guys. Then you just need your team (unpainted OK or else I could not play) and a desire to have fun playing some blood bowl.
As a note I am not running the event and have no financial stake in its success. My promotion is being done solely in the hope of meeting more Blood Bowl players in the area and I am receiving no compensation. I just want everyone to have a good time.
