As part of  the changes brought by the new edition of the game, we have seen fit to revise the tournament format as follows:

Scenarios will once again feature a Primary and Secondary Objective format. With a Win-Draw-Loss component based on the Primary Objective, awarding 9-5-1 Victory Points respectively.  Secondary Objectives will be unique for each scenario and award up to 6 VP for each scenario.  So, players can score between 1-15 Battle Points for each scenario they play.

We have updated the way Warlord Traits are handled, lifting previously banned Warlord Traits.

Warlord Traits that provide a Victory Points bonus will be allowed, and any Victory Points gained by these Warlord Traits will be combined with other Secondary Objectives.  In these situations players can only ever score up to the scenario’s maximum allowance for Secondary Objectives.

Other special rules that generate or deny Victory Points for a player’s army will be handled on a case by case basis and will be covered in the FAQ section of the website.

Seventh edition is upon us, and as with all of the previous edition changes, Astronomi-con will once again evolve.

We will be reviewing the new edition and updating our tournament format and scenarios to take advantage of all of the new options and rules.  For those that have attended our events over the years, these sorts of transitions have not had a huge impact on our players, and we expect the feel of the event to be much the same.

In the coming days, we will be reviewing the ruleset, and determining what changes to the format will be required.  As we decide on specific tournament changes, we will announce them here and on our mailing list and social media to reach as many of you as possible.

We welcome insights and opinions from our alumni regarding the new edition and encourage our alumni to share their ideas on our mailing list or social media and discuss the new edition.

Transitioning the event to a new edition is something we’ve done already three times in the past, so players should not be concerned about how a new edition might impact the tournament.

We’ll have more to share with you all very soon!
