|Voltron plays in the team tournament!|
Like the mighty Voltron, this event is loved by good, feared by evil and ready to chop some nasty old Robeasts into little bits, Ki-Yi!
So, what is the BAO? It is the largest miniatures gaming tournament on the West Coast of the USA, what started Team Zero Comp and Frontline Gaming. Way back in yonder years a group of buddies that loved playing in 40K tournaments decided to throw their hat in the ring and run one for themselves. It turned out to be a good idea as the event was a big success and was what gave them the idea to open a Game Store and live the gamer life, full time!
So, the BAO is a very special event for us. We've really worked hard to make this the best year yet, and the feedback we've been getting so far has been just awesome. So many people are excited to come and it really means a lot to us to see the excitement building! We've got folks coming in from all over the USA and a few teams saying they're coming in from out of the country! One of the awesome things about the BAO is the low price. Our tickets are very affordable and the Hotel (The Day's Inn and Suites of Antioch) is super cheap ($69.99 per night for a double! Just tell them you're there for the Bay Area Open) which makes the BAO the most affordable, major GT in the country. You can grab tickets here!
- We've got a Warmachine and Hordes event each day of the event.
- Warhammer Fantasy Singles Championship and a Narrative Driven Team Event.
- 40K Team Tournament that is a ton of goofy fun, a 40K Narrative Campaign run by Big Jim of Deepstrike Radio, and our flagship event, the 40K Singles Championship!
- A Table Building Contest that allows you to win cool prizes and show off your modeling skills!
- We are also a Crystal Brush Qualifying event, too!
- You can see results and pictures from last year. BoLS own Goatboy nearly won it all!
Prize support at our events is AWESOME! We give out entire armies, awards for best painted, best costumes, Renaissance Man, our very popular "Best Of" awards that go out to the player that does the best with each army, and our very awesome new Tournament Champion award, The Belt of Russ!
|The Ultimate Warrior wants the Belt of Russ!|
So mark your calendars, the BAO 2013 is coming up, March 1-3 and is gong to be a super fun, can't miss event!
