Tournaments: Human Wave 2021


Thanks to you and everyone who attended and made this year’s Human Wave a success! As we said to each other on the first day of the tournament, even putting on the tournament in-person was a ‘win’. Altogether we had 13 people attend, including five starter kit players. This is a great start at a ‘rebuilding year’ after COVID.  

There were many hands who helped make this a success. These include:

John G — for the offering up his backyard in the secret, undisclosed location in Northern Virginia and setting up the logistics; 
Dave W — for organizing and running the Starter Kit play
John S — our very knowledgeable Tournament Director 
Mick B — for a very generous donation of two rare HASLs: Streets of Fire and Hedgerow Hell
David G — for running the website and collecting the tournament fee
Scott B — for devoting the time to create the very nice looking prize plaques
… and the many others who offered their time to select, analyze and review scenarios for the scenario list. 
Based on our attendance from this year, we anticipate that next year we can gather enough players to easily rent a large indoor space (and not have to worry about evening thunderstorms or wind, ha) and make it even better. Stay tuned for Human Wave 2022!
