Hi, and welcome to Malifaux at Attack X 2017.

This year, there will be a Gaining Grounds 2017 event running Saturday and a Henchman Hardcore running on Sunday.

Here are a couple of house rules that will be in effect across the weekend:

  • Each player must announce their faction and the beginning of the event and play all games with the declared faction.
  • Every player is responsible for having all the models, cards, tokens, pens, measuring tape, rules, and any other gaming accessories required to play. Please note that all decks must be Malifaux decks that feature the appropriate suits. If you do not have a Malifaux deck, one can be lent to you.
  • Unofficial proxies will not be allowed in this event.
  • Though painting is not required for these events, every game that you begin with a fully painted crew on the table will earn you one extra entry into the door prize draw for prizes in the Gaining Grounds event.
  • If a player inadvertently reveals more cards than should be seen (flipping two cards instead of one), the official practice will be to replace the extra card in the deck and thoroughly shuffle it, and to give one’s opponent the opportunity to cut it again.
  • The Gaining Grounds event will be four rounds. This means that there may be multiple undefeated players at the end of the fourth round. So, please be very aware that the tie breakers, in order are differential (how many points above your opponent you earned) and victory points (total number of points earned in a game)
  • Gaining Grounds round length will be 2 hours. Henchman Hardcore will be 1 hour. With 15 minutes left, Last Turn will be announced; do not start another turn. With 5 minutes left, Last Activation will be announced. Whatever model is currently being activated will be the last activation of the game. Resolve all final game conditions and report your game.
  • If there is an odd number of players, we hope to have a Bye player. Should you play the Bye, you will score your game one of two ways: If you beat the Bye, you keep every point you earned. If you lose to the Bye, you get a Victory, with a +1 Differential, and 3 VP.
  • All Strategies and Schemes will be posted prior to the event.
