INSTRUCTIONS: HOW TO HOST A TOURNAMENT
Here are a few simple steps to follow to start up a successful monthly tournament, with minimal time and effort:
1. Pick a date. If you pick a date 2 weeks in advance and email us, we will send you a handful of that month’s rare card to be passed out to those who attend. We will mail you a stack and gauge how many we send you for the next event by the number of attendees.
2. Pick a place. Find a location that is accessible to all. Libraries often have meeting rooms for non-profit groups to use. Game stores, schools, and churches are other potential meeting sites. As a regional rep, if you can get a game store, book store, or any retail store to sell Historical Conquest™, you will receive a 10% commission for all purchases made by the store, as long as you remain a regional rep. We ask that you avoid hosting tournaments in private residences for the safety and comfort of all attendees, unless the tournament is for a private homeschool group.
3. Contact others and spread the word:
a) Email your group, we will send you contacts that showed interest or who have purchased in your area.
b) Email tournament information to us and we will post it on our website, social media, and notify any retailers in the area that currently sell Historical Conquest™.
c) Post tournament information on your own social media or create a dedicated social media site for your local group.
4. Send out a reminder. People are busy and may forget, so send out a friendly reminder. Remember to send out the address and directions including directions inside the building, if needed.
5. On the day of the tournament, show up 15 minutes early and set up the tournament area.
6. If you are charging a tournament fee, collect the money up front. Remember tournament fees are optional. If you decide to charge a tournament fee, you may want to offer free entrance to players who bring a friend. You can sell merchandise at tournaments, but make sure you have a few extra decks on hand for new players to try out the game. This may increase your chances of making sales.
7. When people arrive, pass out the monthly rare card. These cards increase the excitement of attending the tournament.
8. Set up tables of 3-4 players each. The winner of each of those tables will then gather for a second round. Second-place players from the first round gather at another table, and so on. If you choose to hold a third round, you can have the winners from each of the second round tables gather for one last game, to etermine the Grand Champion of that tournament.
9. Keep track of those who attended and those who won (how many times they won 1st place) and send us the information after the game. We will post that information on our National Bracketing System so players can watch their rankings increase across the country.
10. Ask everyone for feedback and begin planning the next tournament. Give us 2 weeks’ notice so we can send you more rare cards and a possible prize for the Grand Champion of that month's tournament.
