The Shaka Shield Blood Bowl Tournament returns on the 25th of March. Come take part in SA's longest running and most prestigious Blood Bowl tournament and prove that you really are the best coach in the country!

Rules, costs etc subject to change

VENUE:
NEXUS - 21 Harley Street, Randburg

ENTRY FEES
Entry fee will be R100 - this includes membership to Nexus and the NAF

TOURNAMENT RULES:
Team creation:
Coaches have 1100000gp with which to create their teams.
Star Players can not be purchased.
General:
Teams reset after each game so injuries and deaths do not cary over between games.
Teams allowed in the tournament will be the teams from the starter box set, Deathzone Season 1 and the Teams of Legend PDF (http://19070-presscdn-0-68.pagely.netdna-cdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/BB-Teams-of-Legend-Revised-1.pdf)
Please make sure to read the Errata as these will be in use: http://19070-presscdn-0-68.pagely.netdna-cdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/DZ-Errata.pdf
Special Play cards will not be used.
The "Piling On" skill is allowed and will NOT cost a team reroll to use.
Wizards are not allowed.
On sending off (a Foul or Secret Weapon), the Head Coach can Argue the Call. On a 1, Head Coach is also sent off and receives -1 to Brilliant Coaching thereafter. On a 6, the player is only sent to Reserves. Turnover still applies.
Skills:
Star Player Points are not captured. Instead, BEFORE THE TOURNAMENT, coaches will be able to skill-up 4 players. This means you can select 4 players to give a normal access skill to. This skill will be available to that player for the duration of the tournament.
Coaches may not add more than one skill to a player. All skills MUST be noted on your team roster when registering your team in the morning. These skills can not be changed after registration.

TOURNAMENT SCHEDULE:
Registration 8:30
Game 1: 9:00-11:00
Game 2: 11:15-13:15
Lunch: 13:15-14:00
Game 3: 14:00-16:00
Game 4: 16:15-18:15
Prize Giving: 18:30

TOURNAMENT SCORING:
The tournament will be scored using the Swiss system, with coaches being matched according to their ranking in the tournament. Teams are ranked first by tournament points, then by TD difference, then by Casualty difference.
Points are earned for each game played as follows:
Points: Win = 5 / Draw = 3 / Lost = 1
Bonus points: 3 TDs = +1 OR 3 Cas = +1 (can't claim both)
Tournament bonus point: Printed roster +1 / Painted team +1

THE PRIZES:
There will be support from Outerlimits as well as from NAF (the official Blood Bowl tournament organisation) with rewards for all coaches.

MATCH TIMING:
Games must be played within 2 hours, no play will be allowed after the cut-off time. After an hour of play a general notice will be given that you should be starting your second half. If you have not started the second half yet please speed up your play. It is recommended that all players use the 4 minute per turn rule - there are several apps that can time this, I recommend Game Time on the iPhone.

Please will all interested coaches put their names down below.

Greater Fishy - Ryan Young
Joppie - Johan Jansen

11 man (regular Blood Bowl) event that is most likely over 1 day. There is a possibility it could be over 2 days as 2 separate but linked events (just an idea at the moment)
