Saga tournament at Giga-Bites Cafe in Marietta on Sept. 13

Giga-Bites Cafe in Marietta, Ga., USA, is hosting a Saga tournament in their all-new larger facility.

You can sign up by emailing Richard ( or going to the event's Facebook page.

The details are as follows:

Entrance Fee : $10

Location : Giga-Bites Cafe, 1803 Roswell Rd, STE 1851, Marietta, GA, 30062. 770-578-1497.

When : September 13th - 10am start, 9:30am for registration and setup.

Here's a reference to the SAGA rules for tournaments.

What to bring - Bring a 7pt Warband and a roster indicating how you spent the 7pts. On this roster, indicate how the points were spent, and how many figures have equipment options and/or upgrades. You will play with 6 pts only, so will have to choose one of your points to be left out during the deployment. So, players have 7pts on their roster, but only deploy 6 of these points, the choice of the point being left out being determined by the player depending on the scenario and the faction faced.

Scenery - when setting up your terrain, you can bring you own or use the store's terrain.

- Only warbands from the first 4 books are allowed, no Saracens etc.
- Bards are allowed
- Angry Monks are allowed - because why not!
- Banners / Standards are allowed

Scenarios - Scoring will be from the tournament pkg above.
1- Clash of Warlords - 10am start - 2 hours (this will help newer folks get the hang of the game)
     - Per the suggestion from the TO pkg, death of a warlord does not end the game... carry on playing for points :)

** 1 hour break for lunch - maybe 30 minutes if folks are ok with that...

2- The Escort - 1pm Start - 2 hours to play

3- Sacred Ground - 3:15pm start - 1.5 hours to play

4- Homeland - 5pm start - 1.5 hours to play

** 6:30 - 7pm Awards and Warlord Boasting!

1 - Overall winner and top Warlord of the day!
2 - 2nd place Warlord! (depending on turnout and prize pool)
3 - Best Sport - player voted
4 - Best Painted - player voted

If you're interested in attending, please email for any questions about this event. Please also note if you're able to bring some terrain.

What this means for me is to get another couple of points of Vikings painted by then. And, to figure out if the kids want to participate (it's a really long day of gaming, even for adults) and then have them settle on a warband and see about painting those up as well.

(I think I'll be taking paint and minis to the beach for our vacation in order to get it done in time!)

'Til next time!
