How we play

To minimize the disagreements between the players, as a baseline always follow the guidelines below. Discuss them prior to a match if you feel the need. If you both agree to play the game differently, that is entirely up to the players at the table.

Dice:

We would like to encourage people to play with the same dice. In addition, we would also like to encourage people to use the same die for turn rolls

Dice rolls:

Only dice where the bottom is entirely touching either the playmat or surface objective markers are considered rolled. Dices should be rolled so that the opponent can always see what has been rolled. Always remove dice that were unsuccessful rather than the opposite.

Intention:

Speak your mind throughout the game and make clear with your opponent what your intention is, then ask your opponent if he agrees with your intention. Stick to these verbal agreements.

Takebacks:

Making the fewest mistakes is an important aspect of Age of Sigmar. We do not play with takebacks

Move:

As a general guideline, when you are moving a model, try to avoid shifting it around excessively before you finalize its new position. To avoid that, it is always a good idea to move the model its maximum distance, and then only move it backwards before you finalize its new position.

Chessclock:

As we only have 3 hours to play each round we use chess-clocks to the best of our ability. It’s a good practice as the hobby is moving in this direction for competitive games.


Social Media

You can use Discord or Facebook to chat or ask fellow players questions about the tournament.
