The event is split into 3 days
Day 0
Friday Night, the 4th March will be the Str10 Challenge, whereby challenges can be levelled at the attending players. This is a dedicated “grudge” arena set up to allow you to pick that fight you always wanted to pick. This also gives fester, as the TO, a chance to throw some dice. This is not a compulsory part of CENTURION. This is for “funsies”.
Day 1
The Proving Grounds. In order to compete in the CENTURION itself, players must remain undefeated on Day 1. Only the undefeated players go through to the CENTURION. The first day will have 4 games (assuming we have more than 32 players. If we have 32 or less, then there will be 3 games and Game 4 will be cut.)

Doors open 8:00 AM
Registration: 8:00 AM – 8:30 AM

Day 2

The Cleansing. You have swept your foes before you, and now are moving on to bring your supremacy to its final bloody conclusion.
You will be reallocated to brackets of 4 players, which you will play in for Day 2. Your brackets will be the other 4 players who rank closest to you at this point in the tournament. These 2 games will be the toughest games all weekend, so don’t leave your A-Game at the pub the night before. This will be further outlined on the day.
