The time to prove your skills on the battlefield has finally come!

We are setting up a great Gary Grigsby’s Operation Torch Tournament and we are inviting you all to take part in this event!  Please note that the base game Gary Grigsby’s War in the West and the Operation Torch expansion are required for participation, as this tournament uses a scenario from Operation Torch.

The first round will start on December 14, 2015 so sign up and start practicing!

It would not be right to have a tournament without prizes, so of course you will not only be fighting for glory and bragging rights!  To make things more appetizing, some nice prizes are also up for grabs!


To apply you have only to reply to the forum thread here


Please read through the rules below:

1.       We are accepting a maximum of 16 players for this tournament.  You may sign up for the tournament through the forum.  Applications will be accepted in the order received.

2.      There will be three rounds total, the initial round, a semi-final round for the top 4 players, and a final round for the winners of the semi-finals.

3.      The tournament scenario will be played twice in each round, once per side against the same opponent (thus 2 games in each round). These games should be played simultaneously.

4.      The scenario to be played is Rommel Attacks 43 (5 turns) using the PBEM++ (server) system.  Upload and Download ratios will be monitored to ensure fair games.

5.      Unless arranged with your opponent and the tournament staff beforehand, Players must complete their turns within 48 hours of the time that their opponent completed their last turn or they forfeit.  If your opponent forfeits, you will receive the minimum “Minor Victory” level for the scenario in terms of your victory point ratio.

6.      Players must provide their user login names so tournament officials can check final scores on the server.

7.      Players are welcome to post AARs of any of their games on the Matrix forum.
