WHO: You and the Warhammer 40k community looking for a fun unconventional event!
WHAT: A Team Tournament where you don’t get to choose your teammate but still have fun!
WHEN: Saturday December 2nd @ 10am
WHERE: Golden Rhino Games 2092 Whittaker rd, Ypsilanti, MI, 48197
WHY: To roll the dice on more than just Warhammer and have a blast doing it!
Warhammer 40,000 tournaments can be a fun challenge and great way to play games. What's better is a Team tournament with your friends all playing too. So… What’s better and more challenging than that? A RANDOM DOUBLES TEAM STORE CHAMPIONSHIP TOURNAMENT! The Random Doubles event format has been a staple of Golden Rhino Games since well before its opening. So we are bringing them back but with a fun twist for Warhammer 40k 10th edition and our Store Championship!
For this event, players will construct a 1000pt battleforged army list ready to play with a teammate using our pre-generated missions, but there's a catch. You don’t know who your teammate is. (This can be like a bad day in gym class waiting to be picked for the dodgeball team.) Once all players are checked in with army lists submitted, team pairings will be randomly* generated for the day! The person you’re teamed up with becomes your best friend and the two of you must work together over 3 rounds to try their best to seize victory and win dumb prizes!
NOTE* Team pairings will be based on the factions that sign up at random. Teams will be randomly generated and then modified so no two like factions play together. The only exception is if there is an over abundance of one faction signed up.
To keep things interesting there will be awards given out to teams in rather unconventional ways. First off, after teams have been announced, all players will vote for which teams they think will earn the awards listed below. Then after the tournament, we will announce the scores and true winners. Anyone that gets them all correct (or the most correct) will win a special prize!
Prizes are awarded to:
Class Colors! - Best Painted Team voted by other players.
Most Likely to set the world on Fire! - Highest scoring team that doesn’t make the top 3.
Most Likely to Rob a bank! - Highest scoring team with both players sharing the same name or team with one player named Rob.
Homecoming King & Queen! - Highest scoring team paired up with at least 1 Adepta Sororitas faction player.
Class Bullies! - The team to “Table” the most opponents. (counting individual players).
Class Foreign Exchange Students - Team with the lowest scores with at least one player playing a Xenos Faction.
Class Clowns! - The team voted to have the funniest combination of factions, lists, and voted for favorite opponents.
Class Dropouts! - Lowest scoring team with at least one player playing Chaos of some kind.
Over Achievers! - Highest Scoring team overall.
Class Under-DOGS! - The Highest scoring team consisting of at least one Space Wolves faction player that is actually using the Space Wolves detachment rules.
BUT WAIT! THERE’S MORE!
On top of those amazing awards we will be giving out WHAMMY PRIZES to the tables that do just awful each round! That's right! If your team gets tabled, fails the gamble, or simply can’t roll above a 1 all day, you’ll probably win a prize! And not just for you and your teammate, but the WHOLE table! Afterall, the team whomping on you is helping you achieve ultimate failure.
Missions, rules, and twists will be posted in the weeks to come. So hold your horses and get on the horn! Tell your friends to sign up just so you can attempt to kick their butt! Or get lucky enough to play with them!
This will undoubtedly be an absolutely ridiculous day of shenanigans and banter!
With that in mind, what faction are you going to play?

3D printed models are allowed with prior permission before the day of the event.
