The Big Game III - The World's Biggest Apocalypse Game



James Bell
The Big Game III will be held on Saturday, March 16th and this year, the home site of The Big Game will be moving from the Los Angeles Games Workshop Battle Bunker to the Memphis TN GW Battle Bunker.  Why the move?  Well, James Bell, the former LA Bunker manager has moved to Memphis, and I thought it would be fun to change things up and follow James to Memphis.  

Plus the other two big Apocalypse clubs who help found the Apocalypse40K Forums, Siegeworld from St. Louis, MO and Apoc-Eclipse from Apex, North Carolina are both able to attend the event in Memphis and I think that is huge for the Apocalypse community.

I will be renting an SUV, loading it with everything I own, and driving across the country (which I have wanted to do since seeing "Cars").  The rules have been set and I have asked Matt Plonski of Apoc-Eclipse and Kirk Daman from SiegeWorld to write the scenario.  

Set-Up will start on Friday, but you don't need to be there then.  You can set up Saturday am.  Doors open at 8am Saturday and the game starts at 10:00am.  We will finish at 11:00pm and turns will be timed.   

SCHEDULE

Friday, March 15th

12:00 noon     Bunker opens (Table Set up, Terrain placement, army displays)

Saturday, March 16th

8:00 am     Set - Up

10:00 am   Game starts

11:00 am   Game Ends

Friday all day players will be arriving, armies will be on display and we will set up tables and terrain.  There will be a Friday night dinner and much drinking (they do a lot of that in the south).  Saturday we ill bring in Pizza for lunch, and have a 90 minute dinner break so we can all go out, socialize and get off our feet for a bit!

As with the previous two years, we will be opening the game up to clubs and stores world-wide.  Each year we have had over 20 locations in 5 different countries, and we want to increase that number this year.

The Memphis Battle Bunker aka "World of Battle"

What does it take to be a location for The Big Game III?  A desire to play with LOTS of models.  The only rules you have to follow are:

1)  Forces of Light vs Forces of Dark

2)  One objective per 10,000 points.

3)  Play four turns.

So if you want to be part of the World's Biggest Apocatle Game, sign on to the Apocalypse 40K forum or email me at alec (at) Propworx (dot) com.

Good Hunting!

Alec
