Thunderdome is a format I invented a few years ago to kill time before an event. The details have evolved over time, but in short: 4+ players have an army consisting entirely of three warcasters or warlocks that share a battlegroup, with no other models allowed (eg, no Derelyss, no Goreshade feat, one Coven member with no ball, etc). Each player (we’ve run up to 11 people on one board) spawns at the outside of a ring, and then they run around for an hour killing each other. It’s pretty hilarious. 🙂
