Battle Pack #7 - Leader of Men - Tournament Battle Pack

Combat Commander: Tournament Battle Pack – Leader of Men is the seventh themed collection of scenarios for use with the Combat Commander series of games. The growing and continued popularity of the Combat Commander Series has increasingly found its inclusion in game conventions around the globe. In many instances these conventions pit the players in a tournament setting. Invariably the question arises of how to implement and run such a tournament. In an effort to formalize these endeavors the CC: Tournament Battle Pack was created to provide a core set of tested scenarios and rules for use in the running of a Combat Commander Tournament.

CC Tournament Battle Pack–Leader of Men features twelve scenarios (ten previously available online and two new) printed on cardstock, two new maps, four page tournament guidelines booklet, and tournament record card template printed on cardstock.

Each scenario is designed specifically for tournament play with situations and scenario special rules crafted to test a player’s skill and Combat Commander knowledge. The twelve scenarios cover actions from 1939 to 1944 with each of the combatants in the Combat Commander Series represented in at least one scenario. The Tournament Guidelines Booklet contains the preferred rules the designer uses to implement and run tournaments at the World Boardgaming Championships and the PrezCon Game Convention. These guidelines are an out of the box solution for any potential tournament host but are also easily adapted to suit any style of tournament play.

**NEW** The tables now include play counts, average length in minutes and an average number of time triggers per playing. These stats are based on plays entered by all users.

* The Min/Max Time columns are to provide some sense of the length of the scenario relavtive to other scenarios. Of course, multiple Time Events may occur in quick succession, or may be spaced far appart. This does not consider possible Surrender/Attrition game end conditions, which could potentially occur prior to the Min Time Event number.
