Naracoorte’s local Warhammer 40,000 annual tournament, Terracon, celebrated its 20th birthday over the weekend.
This year over 90 players travelled from across Australia, including as far as Queensland, to come and take part in the tournament and play five games over the weekend.
Warhammer 40,000 is a game played with miniatures and the tournament is played over two days, with players aiming to win games but also present a nicely painted and themed army.
Sportsmanship also plays an important role in determining the winner, ensuring that everyone can have an enjoyable weekend.
Awards and prizes for the tournament are given out in several different categories allowing players to aim for different awards over the weekend.
Matt Morosoli, from Victoria, took out first place for the tournament, with former local Mathew Cross coming runner up.
Brad Crafter was the best placing Naracoorte player. Brad also managed to win Best Sports, after being voted the most enjoyable player to play against by four out of his five opponents.
There are many people who assist in making this weekend of fun possible. We had several vendors come and provide terrain for tables and door prizes for players. Many players also assisted in setting up the Town Hall late on Friday evening allowing for an early start on Saturday morning.
We would like to say thank you to all of the people who have assisted over the weekend in many different capacities, but especially to the players who come and make it an enjoyable weekend.
If anyone is interested in learning how to play, the local Warhammer gaming group, Desperate Allies, can be found on Facebook. We are always looking for new players.
