IMG_3131.jpg

Here's what everyone really wants to know, the big results of the Rose City Raid! We had an amazing showing, and some very close games, which you can see by how close the scores all are.

The Top Three

It was a hard fought battle this weekend, over 5 rounds, with some very tricky scenarios and terrain to make it through, but someone had to come out on top!

 
 
 

Avanst (1st Place)

Hailing from the great white north, Adam took Portland by storm and went undefeated to win the Rose City Raid 2018. With first access to the prize pile, not only did Adam take home the first place trophy and ITS: Treason pack, but also snuck out with a pack of PanO TAGs, and the much coveted Dolly Dagger patch!

 
 
 

Gaffles (2nd Place)

Another from the territories above, Aaron blasted through the competition, scoring the second place trophy, a Gamemat.eu gaming mat, and the Johnny-5 patch for the Kurage Crisis.

 
 
 

Zhukov2 (3rd Place)

Finishing off the top 3 was Tony, from Seattle, WA. Seen here with a smile, while carrying his third place trophy, a Blackjack with HMG, and an Aleph patch, also from the Kurage Crisis.

Wooden Spoon Award

A special shout out to George Spencer, who was not only an incredible sportsman through the whole event, but also the recipient of our first Wooden Spoon award! To give him a better shot at placing higher in the event next year, the wooden spoon also came with a 300-point Tohaa boxed army, because they win everything, right?

Best Painted

This year, I forbade Obadiah from competing for Best Painted, so instead I made him judge it! We had a lot of beautiful armies, but Grimalkin took home the gold for his NCA army.

 
 
 

Best Table

To encourage people to bring their best game tables, we naturally had to give a sweet beer stein trophy for it! I recused myself from the voting, and participating, but we did a weighted average vote from non-participants, to determine a winner. This year, YueFei23 took home the award, with his amazing Big Trouble, Little China board, complete with the Porkchop Express.

 

That's a wrap!

Man, what a crazy weekend. Part of me is glad it's all over, but at the same time I'm really excited to get started planning for next year. We've got some great ideas in store to ensure it will be an even more impressive and memorable event!
