Pieces of Eight GenCon Tournaments

With the release of Pieces of Eight at GenCon, we're going to host a series of High Seas tournaments right at the Atlas booth (#1321), one each day of the convention. "High Seas" is a new tournament format that will be detailed in an upcoming issue of Game Trade, but basically, you play lots of individual games as fast as you can, and those who collect the most bounty tokens from those they vanquish advance to a final round, where the winner is determined. Each entire tournament takes only 90 minutes.
Thursday 4:00 - 5:30pm, Everyone Welcome
Friday 4:00 - 5:30pm, Everyone Welcome
Saturday 4:00 - 5:30pm, Everyone Welcome
Winners in the Thursday, Friday, and Saturday tournaments will also be invited to the Admiral's Challenge, a final, invitation-only tournament on Sunday.
Sunday Noon - 1:30pm, Previous Days' Winners Only
Pieces of Eight designer Jeff Tidball (that's me!) will play on Sunday as well, so you'll get a chance to beat the creator at his own game. (Which should be all too easy... I'm not sure I've ever won a game of Pieces of Eight.)

Prizes escalate every day, and each day's winner will lay claim to at least one piece of can't-buy-it-anywhere Pieces of Eight coinage, with Sunday's winner taking home the one-of-a-kind promotional Captain lead proof.

If you'll be at GenCon, don't miss it!
