The Mountaineer GT is the longest-running, largest Kings of War Grand Tournament of the Mid-Atlantic region, held in Martinsburg WV. 2018 will be our second year, and we’re really excited to get the tournament underway. If successful, we look forward to coming back each year and making this a staple of the Mid-Atlantic competitive Kings of War scene.

For 2018 we will also be hosting the Mountaineer Narrative Event, a two-day Age of Sigmar narrative event.

2018 Mountaineer GT Hotel

June 1-3, 2018 @ Comfort Inn Aikens Center, Martinsburg, WV

Martinsburg, WV

Martinsburg, WV is in the eastern panhandle of West Virginia, sandwiched between Maryland and Virginia. We’re about an hour and a half from Washington, DC; Baltimore, MD; and the NOVA area. We’re also about three hours from Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, PA, and Richmond, VA. The hotel and town are located right off Interstate-81, very convenient for travel from the north or south.

GT Venue

The Mountaineer KoW GT and AoS Narrative Event will be held at the Comfort Inn Aikens Center off Edwin Miller Boulevard in Martinsburg, right off Exit 16E of Interstate-81. The hotel was recently renovated in 2014 and is in excellent condition. Until 2017, it held the Martinsburg-area gaming convention 1d4 Con, so the staff and owners are familiar with gamers and our eccentricities.

Edwin Miller Boulevard is a main entryway into Martinsburg and is “blessed” with many close-by fast-food establishments for a quick meal. For a lengthier dinner, the Mountaineer Pub, Bourbon Brew House, and La Trattoria (Italian) are within a half mile from the hotel. Martinsburg also has several locations downtown; be sure to ask any of the hotel staff or us for recommendations.

We’ve secured a room block at the hotel for participants under “Mountaineer GT”.┬áThe block will be closed about three weeks short of the date; if you call and there is no availability, please reach out to us so that we can speak with the hotel and see if more rooms can be made available.

Kings of War Event

The comp pack for the GT will be available shortly.

There will be five rounds unless we receive more than 36 signups, with three rounds on Saturday and two on Sunday. Scenarios will be pulled from the Clash of Kings 2017 or 2018 book suggestions, with the potential for a custom scenario or two to be included in the comp pack. Players from the same group/store/club will not be asked to play each other for the first 1-2 rounds.
