2011 Breast Cancer Brawl Rules




Format: Steamroller 2011

Date: 9/17   10am

Admission: $10.00

Game Format:  Mixed WARMACHINE and HORDES

Game Size:  35 Points  Single List

Game Length: Accelerated – 60 min games  - 7 min turns   - One 3min extension

Scenario: Kill Box Only


Re-Rolls or Paying to Cheat Fate: Players may buy re-roll tokens at the start of the event and any time between games. Each player will get 20 tokens for registering for the event. Each additional token costs a  50 cent  donation to the charity being sponsored by the event

Here’s how the re-rolls work. Each table will have a box where players can deposit tokens. At any time during a game round (a round consists of each player taking one turn) either player may spend tokens by dropping them into the box to buy a re-roll of all the dice in any roll – either his own or forcing his opponent to do so. The costs are as follows for each player:

First re -roll – 1 token Second re-roll – 2 tokens Third re-roll – 3 tokens Fourth re-roll – 4 tokens Fifth re-roll – 8 tokens

Each player may only buy 5 re- rolls of the dice per game round. The count (and the cost of the re-roll) resets to the beginning at the beginning of the next round of the game.

Thus, on turn 1, if Paul is the first player he could get a bad roll, pay 1 token to re-roll all the dice and get a great roll. His opponent, Hugh, could then spend 1 token to force him to re- roll that. If the roll is poor, Paul could then spend 2 tokens to roll it again and spend 3 more tokens to re-roll yet again if the roll was still not to his liking. In Hugh’s first turn, he would have to spend 2 tokens to buy his first re-roll because he had already spent his first re-roll forcing Paul to do so on his turn.

Additional Rules

The following are additional rules. These give players even more ways to “cheat for charity”

Name
Cost
Effect
Pink Ribbon Special
3 tokens
A player using this special rule must do so at any time during his turn.  Player selects one


non-warlock/warcaster model to gain +3 DEF and ARM for one round.  The model also


cannot be targeted by ranged or magic attacks for that round.  May not be used in


conjunction with any other of these special rules on the same model and may not be used


two consecutive turns in a row.
Early Detection
Variable
After regular deployment, each player (starting with the first player) may donate tokens to


advance deploy one model/unit from his army.  For every token donated, one model/unit


may be repositioned up to 1" beyond the standard 10" deployment zone – 3 tokens gets you


3 inches, 5 gets you 5 inches - to a maximum of 10” beyond the normal deployment zone.



The Self-Exam
4 tokens
A player using this special rule must do so at any time during his turn.  The player’s


warlock/warcaster may add +1 to his/her DEF for each point of fury or focus currently on


him/her.  May not be used in conjunction with any other of these special rules on the same


model and may not be used on two consecutive turns.



Awareness is
Variable
Before the start of the game, players may spend tokens to gain a bonus to the roll to
Everything

determine first player.  Each token spent provides +1 to the roll and each player may spend


as many tokens as he or she wishes for this roll.
See your doctor
8 tokens
Once per game, you may spend 8 tokens at the end of your turn to send an opponent’s non-


warlock/warcaster model/unit to the doctor for a checkup.  The affected unit does not


activate during your opponent’s next turn.  However, all continuous effects and enemy


upkeep spells on the affected model/unit are removed.



Women are tough
8 tokens
At the beginning of the game, you may spend 8 tokens to make all female models (they must


be visibly and recognizably sculpted female or named as such in the background fluff) in


your army tough.  When a tough model takes sufficient damage to be destroyed, roll a d6.


On a result of 5 or 6, the model is not destroyed, but retains one wound and is knocked


down.  In the case of models that are already tough (trollbloods, etc.) this ability increases


their tough roll to 4, 5, or 6.  This ability lasts the entire game.



Race for the Cure
8 Tokens
All models/units in the warcaster/lock’s control area can charge at SDP +5 inches without


having to spend focus, be forced or given orders. All charging models can charge through


rough terrain.  May only be used once per game.
United We Stand
6 Tokens
All models/units in a warcaster/lock’s control area gain +2 to ARM and DEF, they also gain


Fearless and cannot be knocked down or made stationary for one round.  This may only be


used once per game.
Targeted treatment
5 tokens
May only be used once per game.  Select a friendly model/unit in your army.  This unit may


select a target model/unit.  When declaring ranged/magic attacks or charges the affected


model/unit ignores all models and terrain between it and the target for purposes of


movement and line of sight except impassible objects.  On the charge, the affected models


must still end their movement without overlapping the base of any other model, though they


may pass through them freely.  Models affected by this rule may damage an incorporeal


target even if they are not normally able to do so.
Awareness and
Variable
At any time that your opponent attempts to use any of the above listed abilities, you may
Prevention

immediately spend the same number of tokens to negate that ability.  For abilities that are


usable a limited number of times per game, they are not counted as used if countered with


this ability.  Your opponent is free to immediately spend more to try to use the ability again.
