Snake Eyes Gaming is proud to announce the 3rd Annual Steel City Showdown. Every Fall between 35-50 players gather at Legions Games in Pittsburgh to test their mettle against one another for three rounds of Warhammer 40,000. At the end of the day one participant will have earned the right to hoist the Steel City Sword and claim the title of Champion until next year.
The Steel City Showdown is Snake Eye Gaming’s biggest tournament of the year. We always try to do something special for the participants – in previous years we’ve had random prizes or raffles. A tournament packet containing all of the rules, guidelines, and scoring system will be available at the bottom of this post in the weeks leading up to the event. Similarly, the missions for the tournament will be made available prior to the tournament.
There is no time for peace. No respite. No forgiveness. There is only WAR.
