Aurora CO I've really fallen in love with the lcgs that I've played so far (AGoT and SW). I would love to find some people to play with, right now its just my Dad and myself. We're also in to the AGoT 2nd ed board game, Battles of Westeros (and BattleLore for that matter, though the new system puts the old one to shame), and X Wing. Though we're also open to trying new games, the biggest problem is finding people to play with. There's a game store called Crit Castle in Aurora off of Buckley between 6th and Alameda (near Pickens Tech). They opened up back in September I believe, seem to be decent people, but the store is a little sparse at times. Next closest I think is Collectorsmania in Parker and Enchanted Grounds in Highlands Ranch. The problem with all three is that MtG is firmly established as the card game of choice, but maybe we can start the revolution.

the key should be to coexist, not to overthrow MTG

Cool, another CO player. I am in the springs. I have been to the Enchanted Grounds - it is a nice place. Do you ever get as far south as the springs?

Unfortunately, I probably wouldn't be able to make it to the springs very often. Actually have had this same problem with some of the other games we've tried playing: are there people in CO playing? yes. Great! Where are they? CO Springs…*sigh*. Its not too bad of a trip and I hate to complain and then say  why don't you come north, but it just is a bit rough to make the trip down there on a regular basis.

I'm not familiar with what all is exactly in Castle Rock, but that would definately be a nice meeting place if there is somewhere in the area (Not quite halfway but I think halfway between Denver and the springs is just rolling hills and highway). Enchanted Grounds would definately be nice, but that's even further for you. 

@superradjoe

I suppose, its just hard to coexist when despite there being plenty of great games out there, the gamer portion of the 2.5 million people living in the Denver-metro area seem to be set on a very small selection of games; I like plurality in my life.

So I know of at least one other person in the Denver area that is on the forums. I will engage with enchanted grounds and see if they have something local there going on with SW:LCG.  If they do, I will let you know and try to plug the CSprings people in as well. It would be cool to have some sort of central CO monthly tournament. We could even bounce it around from location to location; saving everyone a little from time to time.

I love the idea of monthly statewide tournaments at a central location.  I think we're going to be seeing a lot of headway in getting Denver/Springs folk together in the near future.  We just started a joint venture of sorts going on with some of the Denver folk for Netrunner, where we've got a Yahoo group set up to keep track of Netrunner events state-wide.  We'll make some more contacts while we're at GenghisCon in a couple weeks and see if we can maybe set up some events ourselves.  The Yahoo group thing is actually pretty nice; joining the group just adds you to an email list, and then whenever myself or someone else sends out an email about an event, everyone in the group receives it.  I may just go ahead and start up a Colorado Yahoo group for all LCGs, if there's interest.

Let's talk more about this on Tuesday. I have done something similar before with SWCCG and found it fairly effective also. There is no sense in duplicating effort.
