Let's talk about Achievement Points


Something that we've decided to give a try this year is Achievement Points. Normally every year we do something a little extra to help give a little more fun to each game. If you'll notice in the Player Packet this year there is a section titled "Bonus Achievement Points" and it lists several things that you can accomplish during your regular games that will grant you "Achievement Points." These points will go towards your Overall standing (and only your overall standing) in the tournament. 

Most tournaments have a way to net yourself additional points, usually, those go along the lines of making sure your list is submitted on time, renting a room at the local hotel, or donating to a local cause. All of these are great, but we decided to go in a different direction with our bonus points in this tournament.

There are 15 total points you can receive from these achievements: 2-3 point achievements, 2-2 point achievements, and 5-1 point achievements. Ranging from difficult tasks such as "Win the scenario of a single game while losing in attrition (meaning that you score 1 or few BPs in the sliding attrition scale than your opponent)" all the way down to "Be the first to draw blood in a game (route an enemy unit)." 

When you check into the tournament you will be given a sheet with each achievement listed for you to fill out over the course of the tournament. Whenever you complete an achievement, you will write down what game it was, where you completed it, your opponent's name, and have your opponent sign it to verify that it was indeed completed in that game. At the end of the tournament when you turn in your player's choice ballots, you will also turn in this paper and whatever points you gain from this will be added to your overall score.

Each achievement can only be unlocked once, so no doing the same 1 point achievement 5 times and hoping to get extra credit.

Take a look at the achievements over in the Player's Packet section, along with other things to watch for in the tournament.
