Here is all the information you will need for BWX Fest 2, which will be updated as and when we finalise details
Time and Place
Date: 12th June 2021
Where: Online through Discord (#bwx-fest)
Start Time: check in at 17:30 GMT, first round starts at 18:00 GMT
The event will be swiss rounds only. The number of participants will determine the number of rounds
|Number of Players||Number of Rounds|
Rounds are “best of One” and to be played over 45 minutes.
There will be NO TURNS AT TIME.
In the event of an incomplete game in the round the win will be awarded to the player with the highest life total at the end of the turn in which the timer ends. In the event of a tie the winner will be the player who LOST the roll off at the start. For this reason a roll off of sidekicks/wilds must be done at the start of each round to determine who gets to choose who goes first. If the winner of the roll off chooses to go second the other player is still deemed to have lost the roll off.
We will not be running any cuts – the leader-board will be based on Swiss Round performance. Matching performance will be decided by “Strength of Schedule” as determined by the exciting algorithmic machinations of Challonge.
We are asking participants to “check in” on Challonge and hang out on the Discord channel 30 minutes before start time, to ensure a prompt kick off at 6pm GMT.
Please submit team lists by 13:00 GMT on 12th June. Team lists can be submitted by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org as a Dice Coalition Team Builder link or through the submission process on Discord with a Team Builder link. You can find the Team Builder here:

There will be a number of prizes awarded. This might be slightly different to how prizing is usually awarded! Because we want it to be more about the time spent with others and not necessarily about winning we will be awarding the grand prize to the player that finishes last! On the flip side, we don’t want the gameplay to be so poor that people are vying to purposefully lose games, so there will also be a separate prize for the player who finishes first.
We will also be doing a Tombola draw with not one, but two twists! (We may do some prizes as raffle prizes, depending on if certain sources come through)
Firstly, 1 ticket will be awarded for winning a game and 2 tickets will be awarded for losing a game
Secondly, they won’t actually be tickets. Instead we will be assigning each player a character from the Batman set and the corresponding dice will act as the raffle tickets and be drawn out of a bag at the end of the tournament!
We have been busy collating an extraordinary prize pool for you guys that will be joining us for BWXF 2! Here’s what we have so far
