From the announcement:
Want to try a new game and have a chance to win $500 in cash prizes? Come play Ars Victor over Labor Day weekend at Pacificon 2014 in Santa Clara, CA!
ARS VICTOR: The One-Hour Wargame is a two-player sci-fi tactical game reminiscent of Memoir 44, Battlelore, and the Command & Colors games. Use a card-driven command point system to drive your custom army made from twenty-four different units to crush your enemies with the cunning use of twelve battle dice!
Friendly refs will get you started with our quick video tutorial and intro missions. Every game you play helps you win, and you can play as much as you want! The top players will face off on Sunday for the cash prizes.
This all-weekend event has no entry fee or purchase requirements. It is open to all Pacificon attendees. You may purchase a special Ars Victor Limited Access pass for a reduced rate.
