What is it? Shifting Sands 2018 will be a 2 day 5 game event and map campaign pitting the Axis versus Allies in a desperate struggle over the last German stronghold of North Africa, Tunisia!

Nitty Gritty Details:
- Date: January 13th and 14th, 2018. 3 Games will be played on Saturday and 2 on Sunday.
- Location: Mesa Conference and Utilities building 640 N. Mesa Dr., Mesa, AZ, 85201
- Lodging for out of town participants: We recommend the Hyatt which is located a short cab ride from the center and located near the Mesa Riverview Shopping Center.
- Entry Cost: $30.00 (Entry includes lunch for both Saturday and Sunday)

Lists:
- 100 points army lists
- Lists are from current 4th Edition Mid War Books including: Desert Rats and Afrika Korps. Here is the Italian list, Shifting Sands homegrown as that book will not be out in time. We will allow use of the American lists when their new mid-war books is released.
- Command Cards of the BUILD type will be allowed. None others will be, but may be used as bonuses throughout the campaign, so bring your deck. This stipulation is subject to change once the cards are released.
- Lists are due no later than January 6th.

Sides:
- This is a Historical Campaign Event, so we will require even sides between Axis and Allies. Please register early to secure your spot. Players who are flexible between factions are welcome, please just indicate. As we get closer to the event, we may lock additional entry to one side for the sake of balance.
- Historical lists are encouraged but not required. Please note, if you supply supporting documentation and a historical write up with your army list (with the organization reflected in your list selection) you will receive preferential match-ups against other players who have taken historical lists (though these cannot always be guaranteed). Additionally, if a tie should arise in victory points, the player with the historical list will be given the advantage after consideration of overall win/loss.
- The campaign will play out throughout the event. Victories and losses will affect the campaign board and have an in-game effect.
- If you are interested in serving as a general for your side, email me.
