Set nine years after the battle of Yavin. Grand Admiral Thrawn has sent many of his elite star fighter forces to hunt down and destroy the “highly modified” YT-1300 freighter, the Millenium Falcon and her prestigious crew. Grand Admiral Thrawn has recognized the symbolic significance of the Millenium Falcon to the New Republic and desires that through her destruction the a new turn will take place in the hearts and minds of Republic citizens. Thrawn has also enlisted the aid of the galaxy’s most prolific bounty hunters to include the infamous Boba Fett; Fett has a score to settle with Han Solo and has set aside all other bounties until he has once again captured his arch-nemesis. Both sides know the stakes at hand and are willing to commit everything in this life or death encounter.

The games will be a 75 point build, three Swiss rounds of 45 minutes apiece. Players will have to provide own star-ships and movement templates. Gaming area will be standard 3’x3′ star map, with base overlap extremely enforced.

Each tournament will include two great prizes: a large figure for champion (either a Millenium Falcon or Slave-1), and a small figure (TIE Interceptor or A-Wing) for best sportsman.
