The Long Island and New York City organized A Game of Thrones CG community are pleased to announce our annual Black Friday AGoT LCG competition to be held November 27, 2009. This will be the fifth Black Friday event, and as usual we expect to entertain and be challenged by the finest AGoT LCG players on the East Coast.

 

We have secured the private room on the second floor of Cranberry Café, which hosted the Kingsmoot in the East this past July. Cranberry Café is located at 115 W 45th St (b/w 6th Ave and Broadway), New York, NY 10036. Garages are nearby for parking (for a fee) and there is a Holiday Inn Express located nearby on 45th b/w 5th Ave and 6th Ave.

Format will be LCG Joust with approximately four rounds of Swiss followed by a cut to one or more final rounds to crown the champion and award him the Black Friday Cup. (Number of qualifiers for the cut round(s) will be determined by the number of participants.)

T-shirts are once again being considered as door prizes for all competitors –-but this will add to the overall entry fee. The fee is expected to be $ 15.00, or $30.00 if t-shirts are handed out. (In the event that attendance is sufficiently high such that the cost of the room can be spread around more, the fee will be lowered.)

The most current information about Black Friday will be posted on the Events and Activities page at www.AGoTNY.net If you have any questions please feel free to email lodin00@aol.com and/or NightsWatchNYC@gmail.com

Please post here with any questions and to indicate attendance. The event is a little over eight weeks away.

~careful with advertising that, i haven't checked in with the rest of the DC meta yet to see who plans on coming up this year ;-)

seriously though, the black friday experience last year was so fun that i've denied my mother and little brother a trip to visit me over thanksgiving in anticipation of attending the tournament, haha. the only thing that could prevent me from showing up to defend the title would be my wisconsinite girlfriend deciding to visit. (the mother and the brother can easily be told "no"; the female, however...) either way, hope to see you guys there.

speaking of black friday, i assume no one's heard anything about a release date for the martell expansion, correct?

12:30 - 1:00 no later.

We typically shoot for noon, but most of the time it depends on what tioem the out of towners can get in. Traffic is typically ferocious in NYC that day - I urge all to consider trains and buses.

Black Friday V will soon be known as Red Friday I as I'll be taking a break from my usual past-times (clubbing baby seals, loading dead babies onto trucks with pitchforks, etc) to reclaim the NYC Throne.

Bring your most valiant decks, because it'll take more than talentless lannister aggro to defeat Evil.

For anyone who needs it, I will once again be able to host one person at my apt. Might be able to put up some more if I get a futon or something. I now live in the city, up in spanish harlem, so its much closer to the location. Email jason's nightswatch email and he'll let me know so we can figure it out. I can host the night before and the night of if anyone wants to stay around in the city for a bit.

If that isn't an open invitation to find a way to NYC without spoiling Thanksgiving with the family, I don't know what is....

Does that mean the Young Wolf might be making an appearance? Trying to imagine what other horrors you could prepetrate on us.

And finitesquare - do make eveyr effort to come. I am so hoping for a shot at a world Champion this Novembeer - it would be a shame if you weren't there to at least fend off the challengers to yuor title last year.

~Hmm, I had assumed that you NYC guys know by now just to mail me the trophies for your bigger tourneys so as to help me save on time and bus fare :-)

I think there's a good chance I'll be able to make it, and I know that Casey plans on going too. There's a good chance Corey will come as well; I'm pretty sure Dan is out due to family obligations.

I think we should have a serious discussion on whether we should ban the Castellan of the Rock for the tournament, whether or not we have Martell by then I think it would go a long way toward opening up the competitiveness of the other houses over Lannister, whose non-shadows build still seems to be overpowered with Castellan hanging around. Discussion?

Bring on the Castellans. If you have enough removal you can handle them. I plan on crushing Lannisters even with all their little toys.

I'm willing ot entertain arguments though.

Translation: Eric wants to man up and play a different house for black friday but doesn't want to get pwn'd by castellans.

Just a theory, but I think a greyjoy save deck might have a chance against lannister kneel.
