IN-PERSON TOURNAMENT:

Round 1 Friday July 9th
Round 2 and 3 Saturday July 10th
Round 4 Sunday July 11th

Round 4 Saturday July 10th
Round 5 Sunday July 11th
For the first three rounds, players will be paired prior to the start of the round.  Players will then have to arrange between themselves as to when to play.  For the final 2 rounds, players will be matched at the earliest opportunity, but the matches must be complete for no later than midnight (Eastern Time) of that day.  For round 5, the matches should be done for no later than 4 pm (Eastern Time) so that the winner can be announced.
There will be an opening ceremony via ZOOM to start, as well as a closing ceremony, details to be finalized.
NOTES:
  1. All times are Eastern Daylight Savings Time.
  2. GAMES MUST FINISH BY Midnight. This will allow the Tournament Director to post results and to match up for the next round.
  3. VASSAL 3.4.6 and VASL 6.6.1 is the default.
  4. Registrants will receive electronically a welcome package.  This will include pdfs of the scenarios in use as well as a VASL start file.  Note that these start files will NOT have the order of battle: that remains a player responsibility.
  5. The official rules will be updated to reflect the use of virtual means to conduct the tournament.
  6. Have fun!

Scenes from 2019

Our last in-person Human Wave was the 2019 tournament, hosted by the DC Conscripts in Tysons Corner, Virginia.  Here are some photos to document our time!

COVID-19 is still a thing.  We are going to have a hybrid tournament this year.  For those who can attend, there will be an in-person tournament in the DC area.  For those who cannot, we are going to be resorting to VASL once again.
We are going with 23 hours to complete a game.  This will allow players from around the world to join in.  The first two rounds will take a week each and the final three rounds will take place on the Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
The light is at the end of the tunnel as the vaccine is being marched out.  Stay safe and keep watching this site!
