GNOME CON 2017 X-Wing Tournament and Tag Event


Come one, come all to - GNOME CON 2017


Join The Metal Bikini and Galactic Comics and Games for the first annual X-Wing tournament at Gnome Con 2017 on March 4th at 10:00AM in Savannah, Georgia. The event takes place at the Ramada Inn Savannah/Pooler and should run from 10:00AM to whenever we finish. Standard relaxed tournament rules apply and the event is limited to 24 players. It is a first-come, first-served event and your badge into Gnome Con is your formal registration. For those of you are from out-of-town and would like to play, please drop us a line at TMB's facebook page and we can try to reserve a spot for you or your group.

We plan on having four 75 minute Swiss Rounds, followed by a cut to the either the top four or eight players (based on total number of registrations). Registration starts at 9:15AM and the first round begins at 10:00AM sharp. We will have a thirty minute lunch break between rounds. Please bring two copies of your squad sheet fully filled out to registration.

The prizes for the event were custom created by our good friends at CurledPawCreatives and will be worth the registration cost (again this is your badge into the Con). In addition, we will have other swag from TMB and Gnome Con for special prize giveaways.

In addition to the tournament, we will kick off our first South East Bag Tag event for those that wish to participate. What is this you ask? A Bag Tag event is a long-term running competition between players who hold "Tags". Once you receive a ""Tag" based off of your performance at the Gnome Con event, you can play others for their "Tags" in a competitive format game throughout the region. The winner of the match takes the highest"Tag". This particular Bag Tag event will be run by our good friend Adam M and will run approximately six months from the Gnome Con event. This event is to encourage travel to other stores in the region. If you are interested in signing up for the Bag Tag event please see our facebook page for the link. On a side note, you can still play in the tournament without participating in the Bag Tag event but if you are from the South East area you should join us. I promise that it will be fun and the prizes will be make you act a fool.

Other events at Gnome Con will consist of a Destiny tournament on Friday afternoon and a team tournament on Sunday. Please see the official Gnome Con event page for additional information.

Looking forward to having you all at the event and drop us a line if y'all have any questions.

See you at the GNOME.
