The First Annual Canadian National Risk Championship Board Game Tournament (or FACNRCBGT, for short), is underway at the Salvation Army Church in Woodstock. It has 12 participants.

Proceeds from the entry fees benefit the Salvation Army. A recent Crokinole championship had 350 participants, so here’s hoping for a better turnout next time.

I’m curious as to how they plan on enforcing the “no alliances” clause in the rules.

Other interesting rules: Players may not roll dice on or toward the board. No dice “banging”. Dice must be rolled, not “dropped, jumped, thumped, pelted, or skirted.”
