2021 Holiday Tournament Field

The field for the 2021 WWIII Holiday Tournament is complete. A few painful final cuts were made, seedings assigned and all that remains is to establish the brackets in each region and then we’re underway. There will be four play-in games conducted before the actual tournament begins in order to determine the 8 Seed in each region.

After the play-ins are complete and posted on Wednesday, there will be thirty-two WWIII wargame titles divided into four regions. One title will emerge from each region to compete in a Final Four that will determine the tournament champion. Not very different from the WWIII novel tournament back in March except for the inclusion of play-ins this time. I’ll present the tournament brackets on Thursday along with a brief overview of scoring. The first round will kick off on Christmas Eve.

I hope everyone is healthy out there right now. Omicron is hitting the eastern US quite hard right now. I hate to say it, but I picked it up despite being vaccinated. Mild symptoms though and I’m pretty much back to normal…..except for not getting my taste back just yet. 😊
