Blackmoor’s $20 Challenge

So last weekend I posted on the local boards that I will pay $20 to anyone who beats me in a game of 40K.

Why would I do that?

Well I was really rusty and I needed some practice games under pressure. These games helped me out for this week's BolsCon or War Games Con or whatever it is called.

Things I learned:

Abaddon has a lightning claw.

What Berserkers can kill (not as much as I had thought) since I have never used them before.

I only have 3 troops, and I have to be very careful with them. 

The one downside to this system is that when playing for money, I play for a safe tie rather than gambling and going for the win. 

And for those that were wondering, I did not lose any money. 

I hope to do this for next month because I have the So Cal Smackdown on Labor Day and the Gathering in the Desert Tournament the weekend after that.


  1. An interesting, and nice, idea. I may consider replicating it. lol

  2. It was fun, but you have to be careful.

    I hit Ghazghkull and some mega-nobs after shooting them up some with Abaddon and the Berzerkers, and I totally whiffed costing me a scoring unit and I almost lost $20.
