Fields of War- 1. German Kings of War Tournament
On 13.11.2010 the tabletop club “Eisenwaldoffensive” hosted the first Kings fo War tournament in Germany, called “Fields of War”.
Out of 20 places, only 12 were taken. Still the spirits of players and organizers were high.
The concept of “learning by doing” was well received by the participants. After the first game the players were using the rules pretty smoothly. In the case of questions the organizers were immediately at hand.
Each paticipant had to play three games. There was no limit to the number of turns. After two hours the last turn was declared and the scores then counted.
The record is twelve turns. A good example of how smoothly the Kings of War rules can be played.
The pointcosts of destroyed units were counted, according to the victory condition “Kill!”.
For the lucky winner Mantic sponsored great prices.
But no one went empty-handed, since Mantic provided not only the main prizes, but also dozens of promotional sprues, Mantic Journals and further goodies. These were raffled among all participants.
All in all about 320 Mantic miniatures were given out.
