For something a little different, we have a Bolt Action tournament AAR. This was held on Saturday November 5th. The venue is a game store in Chicago called Dice Dojo located on north Broadway in the Edgewater neighborhood. The main floor is composed of open gaming tables on one side and retail space on the other mostly featuring board games and collectible card games. The tournament itself was held in the basement. They have around a dozen 4 x 6 tables and an absolutely staggering amount of community terrain and miniatures along the walls.
The tournament itself was an escalation format. That means each round was more points than the previous round. It was 3 rounds at 450, 750 and 1000 points. This format has a few advantages. The first is an overall shorter tournament. First game was at 10am and we were done by 6pm. The "standard" sized game is typically between 1,000 and 1,250.
