FOODHAMMER:  A Charity Tournament to benefit the Bellevue Food Pantry

Entry Donation: 10 canned goods.

Further canned goods may be donated to buy “in game” Rerolls (see below).
All donations will be counted at the start of the event, and “tickets” given out for each can donated. These can be spent in-game for a variety of effects.
1 Can:
  • Reroll a Single To Hit die, To Wound die, Save die, or Psychic Test die.
2 Cans:
  • Reroll a Failed Leadership Roll (both dice).
5 Cans:
  • Reroll your own Flee or Pursuit Roll. Every subsequent time in the same player-turn this is attempted, the cost doubles (i.e. 2nd:  10 Cans, 3rd: 20 cans, 4th: 40 cans).
  • Reroll a Scatter Die and/or distance dice.
  • Reroll an Artillery Die.
  • Reroll dice that indicates the number of multiple wounds taken.
  • Reroll a Strength, Toughness, or Initiative Test.
10 Cans:
  • Reroll your own Set-Up Roll, or who goes first Roll. Once per player.
  • Reroll the 4+ Die to see if a judgment call (rules or measuring, etc) goes your way or not.
  • Reroll ANY other roll not specified above (Special Attacks, etc).
20 Cans:
  • Allows you to use unpainted or non-WYSIWYG'd models.  Gives even an unpainted force gets an     Appearance Score of 12!
General Can Reroll Rules:
  • Using Can tickets to Reroll a Reroll IS allowed.  Subsequent reroll throws must pay the     surcharge listed.
  • Where the cost is “per die” the player picks only and exactly what dice will be rerolled in a single throw.  ONLY these type of rerolls can be used to reroll your own dice OR your Opponent’s – others can only reroll YOUR dice.
  • Every subsequent time in the same player-turn the same TYPE of reroll is attempted (i.e. per each bulleted item above), the cost is doubled (i.e. 1 can to 2 cans then 4 cans, then 8 cans; 5 to 10 to 20 to 40).
  • These reroll buys must be used AFTER all rerolls from ANY game effects (psychic powers, wargear, etc, that allow rerolls) have been used.

Guidelines on Canned Goods:
  • Within every 10 cans you donate, please do not have more than 3 cans of the same thing. So do not show up with 100 cans of cream corn that cost you 25 cents each. Protein canned goods are especially needed.
  • Please bring extra boxes if you have them, so it’s easier for us to collect and deliver the cans.
