Back to the Royal

Saturday 25th June sees the return of the Hordes of the Things Royal Tournament to our local pub, the Royal Hotel in Dungworth. 10 am start, we should be finished by 5pm.

This is a friendly little tournament (though I say it myself) and well suited to people who want to try their hands at HOTT for the first time. Rob Connolly, for example, played his first ever games of HOTT at the last event (and didn’t come last!)

The tournament is organised on the Swiss chess system pitting those at the top of the table of wins against each other while the less successful players meet each other. This way everyone gets enjoyable, challenging games and no-one plays the same opponent twice.

We’ll be playing four, one-hour games of HOTT with a break for Dave’s excellent pies at lunchtime. Oh, and you should know that the Royal is CAMRA listed so the beer’s good too!

Let me know if you’re interested. We can provide loaner armies for anyone who wants to give HOTT a try.
