Origins 2010 Sailpower Invitational Challenge!

Last year at Origins we ran an ongoing points total towards a grand prize for all events and by Saturday night the competition was rather fierce. While this was a joy to see from one perspective, it also may be a bit much for the casual player who is new to the game and has never seen the game at a high level.

SO this year we are going to be doing things a little differently. We are scheduling a regular game Saturday night, but we are ALSO scheduling an invitational game during the same slot.

Sailpower Invitational  (Saturday, 7 PM to MIDNIGHT)

This is the competitive match for the show! You must be invited to play in this event. If you buy a ticket for this event by accident, and do not have an invite we will simply move you to the regular big game.  If you have an invite, you will need to purchase a ticket for the event, however we hope to make it an awesome game for the experienced player.  We will be awarding prizes. Every qualified player who shows up will get a small prize just playing and there also will be a chance to win the ship you play at the event.  Of course, for such booty a good buccaneer would expect a challenge to go along with it! ARRRRRR!!! Of Course!  We will be using the FULL rules set including variable winds and shoals.  The environment will be full of hazards, AND there will be no factions among the players (no British broadsides, no American marksman ETC). The smart scurvy dawg would point out i said “among the players.”  Did I say that? Hmmm!

Every player will start out with identical ships – the 6 gun schooners we use in the demos. We will be using the full ship including the rail guns on the quarter deck.   Our goal will be to sink at least half the field (You’ve been warned!)  If you can survive the battle without leaving the play surface, you will get to keep the ship you played.

We will still be giving away an event winner prize as well!

How do you get an invite?

If you are on the following list, you have already qualified based on past victories

Josh Potter
Eric Adamasek
Dave Hannigan
Amber Greenwood
Becky Allar
Bob Siegle
Brian Klinger
Don Zimmerman
Kieth Kerstettler
Mattthew Wiggins
Mike Cooper

If not, you can get an invite by:
1. Being the overall Sailpower champion at any convention we attended within the last 2 years.
2. Being a previous invitee that attends the event (eg, if you attend and play you will automatically be invited back for future invitationals)
3. Winning any of the evening games leading up to Saturday night at Origins.

If your name should be on the above list and you are not, please drop us an email @

So, if you do have an invite, You can play in our other events, but have the freedom to help out newer players without affecting your chances at a championship! If you don’t, there are still a few chances to get an invite!

Come for the adventure if you can wrangle one of the invites!

Looking forward to Origins and seeing all of you!
