With only the 5 players we simply played 5 rounds (1 round being a bye). So each player played each other player once. 4 points per 'game' won. 8 Points if you win both games in a 'match'. If a tie happened, revert back to dial count, then back to Objectives destroyed, for a 5:4 victory, if still tied overall then 4 points to each player. The ending scores were...
Declan - 0 points. (Youngest player, not too sure of himself, definitely still learning the mechanics, but he did have some really 'shining' moments, and received nothing but glowing reports from all players. And... He had a great time, and took his overall loss extremely well. Great sportsmanship).
Josh - 12 points. (Quite literally 'got into' the game barely days beforehand. Extremely good player, very very tactical and strategic. With more games, and more cards under his belt, he's going to be quite scary).
Kim - 21 points. (Kim plays... well... EVERYTHING. Every game of anything against him always requires you to wear your thinking cap, and have it on tight.)
Michael - 21 points. (He's my SW:TCG 'wingman'. We are always bouncing ideas of each other, and sitting at my kitchen table throwing random decks together and going at it. He actually built and decimated me, multiple times, with a Speeder Deck, months before they became mainstream in meta's and on forums).
Phill (me) - 28 points. (Won the first 3 matches unscathed. Michael defeated my Sleuth Speeders in the last game of the last match, giving him the 5:4 victory over me. I knew he was going to be my main worry).
** text in brackets are my personal views/thoughts btw **
Anyways, I believe all the players had a great time. There were lots of interesting mechanics being thrown around today. Enough that I for one am going back to the drawing board and am going to be looking a lot closer at cards and Objective sets I would of otherwise just have glanced over previously.
Oh, and I won 2x alt. Art Vader's Tie cards and the 'Hoth' playmat for 1st place. I'm quite chuffed actually. It was awesome to back up my win in the X-wing Tourney from last weekend with a win in the TCG.
