A lot of "-ing"

About to emerge from a couple of weeks of travelling up and down, I have many (too many?) things to settle before leaving for Origins.
The main effort is for "61-65" the company level ACW game I will show there for the first time. Writing, painting, writing, testing, writing......

I had a terrible couple of weeks. No time to post at all...
Hope to be back as soon as possible (maybe tomorrow).
In a word: I'm still alive :)

Arezzo Tournament results

It was a great day. The Tournament went smoothly with 14 players: we started at about 10.30 AM and ended at 5.30 PM with a quite long break for lunch :)

The 4 rounds Swiss system worked well and we managed to avoid matches between players of the same Club (we had 5 Clubs represented). I am now analyzing the results in detail to understand if the point system is OK (as it seems) and balancing playing time with draws.

There were prizes for all players: cups for the Winner, second and third classified, a plaque for the best painted couple of squads, Ganesha Games Rules, 28mm Perry Dragoons sprues and “official” hand made measurement sticks of our usual color (red, orange and yellow).

Final result was as follows:

1 Marco Gasbarri 2183 points
2 Carlo Bandini 2026
3 Filippo Simoncini 1506
4 Max Salvagnini 1473
5 Diego Chisena 1463
6 Valter Vegli 1448
7 Roberto Bagna 1121 + best squad(s)
8 Marco Coccia 1096
9 Alessandro Salini 959
10 Leonardo Rinaldelli 854
11 Luca Ceriola 756
12 Andrea Sfiligoi 426
13 Narciso Battellocchi 329
14 Massimo Moscarelli 174

A couple of minor trimmings will be needed, but I think that version 2.2 will be the one.

I want to thank you again all players and hope to see most of them at the second Tourney in Spilamberto on july 4th.
