Announcing Achievements at the Games of Berkeley February Tournament

Last month I asked the attendees if they would be interested in having achievements during the monthly GoB tournament and there seemed to be a lot of interest so here we go!

I am always pretty cautious of achievements in general as they can really disrupt the overall fun of the game. I didn’t want achievements that would encourage regressive decks that simply try to grind out an achievement at the cost of losing the game as this would ruin the fun for the opponent.

So the way these achievements work, you only count them in games you have won. You still need to build a deck that can win games and hopefully, the tournament. These are intended to slightly encourage you to build and play a deck you maybe wouldn’t have played otherwise. And these are entirely optional. Feel free to completely ignore them. I also tried to theme them around Order & Chaos.

There will be a special prize for the player that wins each achievement. Tie breakers will be resolved based on tournament standing. I am hoping to theme the prizes around the achievements. They will likely be smaller card or board games that GoB has in stock and will be purchased with the entry fees.

This month we have:

Runner – That PAD Will Rot Your Brain! – This achievement is won by the player who has acquired the most brain damage at the end of each game they win.

Corp – Advance The Win! – This achievement is won by the player who has the most advancement tokens in play at the end of each game they win.

The tournament is happening on Sunday, February 8th. This is an experiment and I hope everyone has fun with these!
