GUIDELINES ON SPORTSMANSHIP
We expect players to adhere to the Player’s Code as laid out in the Age of Sigmar rules. Games that do not progress to round 4 in the allocated time will be classified as a draw and no sports points will be scored. Games that have progressed past round 4 but not finished in the allocated time will be judged on the game state at the time. Both players will lose 1 Tournament point and 1 sports point. Players are free to talk out the games if they have reached an obvious conclusion although points matter so we expect a conversation about realistic points that could be achieved.
A concession will see the opposing player receive 20 Tournament points and no sports points for the player who conceded (just don't concede, its not the MANGO way). This is a licensed venue so any aggressive or disorderly behaviour will see security escort you off premises and penalties applied as per a regular night out. Lastly, MAFIA don't suffer no fools, if caught cheating expect the ban hammer son. We understand rules can be mis read or interpreted incorrectly and if that takes you to a win we expect you to fall on your sword (scores reversed).
GUIDELINES ON DISPUTE RESOLUTION
All rules disputes should be resolved by checking the appropriate published rules, players should first try come to an agreement if one cannot be reach the TO will make a final ruling which is not up for debate.
An FAQ discussion will be available on the Facebook page. Any rules you believe could be of contention please reach out for a ruling early. A tie break player will be on hand for both days of the event. The player has a super aggressive play style and will pull no punches so pray we stay at even numbers.
