Longest Night 2017

Sep 11 2017

Longest Night 2017 is a Halloween-themed casual event that promotes candy, costumes, and some good old-fashioned tabletop carnage.

This event is designed to be a single-day casual event and is played with 25-, 50-, or 75-point armies. Players are welcome to change their army size, army list, and even their Faction from game to game. The Event Organizer (EO) is not required to make round pairings, and there are no round timers. Instead, players find a willing opponent, throw down using the special scenarios and rules in this document, and walk away with some fantastic prizes no matter how many victories they achieve!

In other words, this event isn’t about being the best. It’s about battle for the sake of battle. Oh, and candy, lots of candy. Costume contests, too!

Longest Night 2017 Event rules can be found here.
