The annual Toronto OverPower Tournament is happening on Saturday October 19th!

The tournament will be held from 12PM to 6PM with registration from 11AM to 12PM. Matches are 30 minutes each, with an extra 10 minutes to settle last hands. The 5 minute break in between rounds are to decide next round pairings, seating, and shuffling. The first four rounds are Swiss Style, the last three rounds are Single Elimination.

Times not confirmed:
  • Round 1: 12:05PM to 12:45PM
  • Round 2: 12:50PM to 1:30PM
  • Round 3: 1:35PM to 2:15PM

  • Finals: 5:20PM to 6:00PM

Cost is $15. All entry fees go toward prizes.

The venue is Dueling Grounds at 1193 Bloor Street West, Toronto, Ontario.

Prizes are not finalized and depend on number of entrants. They include:

  • Batman Holoseries Promotional card (decided by a vote)
  • Marvel vs Wildstorm Chromium Characters (8 cards)
  • Onslaught OverPower, set of Characters and Specials (22 cards)
  • Complete set of Original OverPower and Mission Control OverPower (488 cards)
  • Two Confusion and two Savage Land promotional cards for 5th to 8th place finishers (4 cards)
  • Entry gift is either: Level 5 Any-Power Power card, Galactus Character card (Marvels Promo), or Level 8 Multipower Power card (Marvels Promo)

Select matches will be recorded and posted on YouTube. If you do not wish to be recorded, please contact Jack (jack@overpower.ca) prior to the tournament. Live stream does not seem possible.

Rules are standard OverPower Legion Rules with slight modifications:

  • Four (4) Characters with the Sum Deck Rule
  • At least 51 cards in the deck, (if using Event Cards, minimum of 56 cards including the Event Cards)
  • Complete set of 7 Mission Cards numbered 1 to 7 matching the events, if any
  • One location designated as the Homebase (Optional)
  • Either:
    • Battlesite deck with a location designated as the Battlesite and matching Activators (plus a maximum of one Beyonder) in the deck but no Any Hero/Characters in the deck
    • No Battlesite deck but allowed to have Any Hero/Character specials in the deck
  • All Marvels are allowed, including printed cards and proxies printed in colour and legible. This includes the 6 Any-Power Teamwork.
  • All proxies are allowed. Proxies must be in colour and unaltered from the original card.

Cards must also be protected in deck protectors of uniform design and texture.

Time limits are enforced. Players will be disqualified if they are purposely stalling for time, at the judges' discretion.

Tie-breaking procedures if the winner is not determined within the time limit (and the last hand is exhausted):

  • +1 for each Mission in the Completed Missions pile, +0 for each Mission in the Reserve Missions pile, -1 for each Mission in the Defeated Missions pile. If that is still tied:
  • Player with more characters remaining, after resolving Inherent abilities and specials (LG for example). If that is still tied:
  • Player with the greater sum of Current and Permanent records on their opponent's characters and locations. If that is still tied:
  • More hands are played until the time limit runs out, but you both draw half the number of cards in the previous round, repeat #1 to #3.

Tie-breaking procedures if the winner is not determined within the time limit, last hand is still being played:

  • The match is considered a tie during the Swiss rounds, both players will play each other in the following round with the winner of that round getting 2 wins, the loser getting 2 losses.
  • We are still figuring out what to do during elimination rounds.

The vote for the Batman Holoseries promotional will be conducted in this thread. Please choose one of:
  • Batman Avenger
  • Batman Detective
  • Catwoman Whiplash
  • Comm. James Gordon
  • Ra's Al Ghul Sword Master
  • Two-Face Crimeboss

Are Marvels permitted? Do they have to be printed in colour?

We haven't finalized the proxy usage rules. I'm going to discuss this with BBH soon.

I meant in regards to the 'battlesite but no Any Hero' rule. 

Actually, let me get clarification: If I have a battlesite, can I still use the 'A-Next' Aspect in my deck with my homebase?

yes, you can still use the A-next aspect card with your homebase and battlesite.

Can I make my own marvels cards for the ones i'm going to use?

A-Next is "Any Homebase", as long as you use a homebase (which you should, there's no reason not to), you can include that in your deck.

To clarify anything, all decks can (and should) use a homebase. Decks can use either a Battlesite or Any Heroes, but not both. If you are using Any Heroes, you cannot have a Battlesite or use Activators in your deck. If you have a Battlesite and Activators in your deck, you cannot have Any Heroes in your deck.

You are allowed to create your own Marvels but the wording on the card must be identical to ours. If not, our wording takes precedence.

Even if I'm not attending can I vote for the Gordon holo?

I'll count the votes from the people who are actually participating, then if there's a tie between a few, I'll move onto secondary voting from non-participants.

If it's still tied, I get to shuffle the cards and see which one pops up.

Thanks.  I think at one of the last tournament there was a restriction on A-Next, so I thought I would check.

On a bit of a tangent, I'm going to try and sell what's left of my collection at this gathering.  I started a thread.

The "restriction" was actually a confusion about the rules. A-Next cannot be placed except to Team OverPower. The same reason why you can't place Any Heroes on your characters (unless it explicitly says so).

I see. So I can still play it if I am using, say, 'Omniverse', but I can't place it to any other Homebase except 'Team OverPower'.
