I decided to change the tournament format to be Wizard only. I explain the new tournament format and the reason for the changes in the original post.

I will need to reconfirm who wants to play. So let me know.

Information on prizes coming soon.

RIP Chaos-WH. :(

*sigh* for yet another case of moronic companies blundering around.

UPDATE: There will be a 16 player maximum and October 25 Deadline for Registration. Complete rules for the tournament will be announced next week.
----------
Sunday October 25: The last day to register for the tournament will be October 25. The tournament will be held over 4 rounds with between 9 and 16 players. We will stop accepting registration with the 16th player. If there is enough interest beyond that, I'll consider a 5th round.
-----------
Monday October 26: The sealed decks and packs will be generated and distributed on October 26. You will get 1 METW Starter Deck and 3 METW Boosters. You will have 1 week to create your deck. If you are a beginner and need help or advice, please ask here.
----------
Monday November 2 - Sunday November 8: Round 1 of the tournament.
----------
Each round will last 1 week from Monday to Sunday. You will get an additional 3 Dragons boosters for the 2nd round, then 3 Dark Minons boosters for the 4th round, and then 1 of each for the 4th round. In addition, you can automatically add a 3rd Wizard of your choice for the 4th and final round to use for building a 2-deck game format deck.

Here is the final version of the generator that will be used for the tournament. I have checked the sheets and the code, caught a few errors like an off-by-one where Thranduil/Ents were never given. I think it is accurate but if you notice something, please let me know.

It is a python script, so you will can change the .txt to .py.

A few things to remember:

• Participants may not spectate other tournament games. (You may want to turn off “Allow Spectators” when you create you game.)
• This round is a one-deck game. Get 20 MPs or exhaust your play deck once and you can call the Free Council.
