 Hello, I'm looking for other A Game of Thrones players in the area of Los Angeles or Torrance California. I was thinking if I could find enough local players I might try and set up a day to meet to play at 8 Ball, a local card/games store. Or if you folks already have a location where you meet, perhaps I can get some info on that?

Hey there! I know it's not real close to you, but several folks from LA and San Diego will be meeting at Pair-a-Dice games in Vista (North County San Diego) on Saturday, from about noon to 6pm. It'd be a great opportunity to meet other SoCal AGoT enthusiasts. If you can't make it, feel free to shoot us an email at agotsocal at gmail.com and we'll try and get you connected with some local players and also added to the facebook group. Lastly, keep an eye on the forum thread posted below for more events:

Hope to meet you soon!

 Yeah, San Diego's a bit far. But i'll check out the forum n stuff. It'd be nice to actually get to play the game after spending all that money on it. Hehe.

I live close to you.  I'm in the West L.A. area.  I go to Torrance all the time and a, pretty sure that I know where 8-Ball is (on Anza next to the 7-11?).  Shoot me an-e-mail at: mathlete@ca.rr.com.  I have some free time over the next few weeks and would be glad to get together and play.

Hey there,

I'm in Redondo Beach and could head over to Torrance.   There is also a nice shop in Redondo Beach called the Comic Bug.  Let's get together and play.  I just got the game and I'm looking to get some games in.

Nice. I signed up for this forum specifically to see if I could find players in the South Bay area, and this is the first thread I saw.

I live in Torrance, and I would love to try meeting up for a game of Game of Thrones. I've played TCGs (non-competitively) for a long time, but I just got the GoT LCG for Christmas.

Kingsguard, mathlete and Tiny Grimes -- are all of you still interested in setting something up? A game store would indeed be the ideal location, but my FLGS (Third Planet Comics & Games is going out of business). The ideal store would be one that actually sells GoT cards. Do 8-Ball and/or Comic Bug fit the bill? My schedule is pretty busy, but I've heard such good things about the four-player game that I'd go out of my way to meet up with a larger group.

Johnny,

 

I'm very interested in getting a game together.  I too just got some cards for Xmas.  I'm an avid SWCCG player, but I've heard great things about AGoT.  I'm available anytime during the day during the week.  If that doesn't work for people let me know and I can free up some time elsewhere.  It would be great to get a weekly group together in Torrance.

Just in case there is someone out there not on the facebook page.  We are meeting this Thursday at the Comic Bug, in Redondo Beach,  from 5 until close (9).  Looking forward to seeing everyone there.

 Darn, why is it that groups for both games I play want to meet on thursdays?

Well it starts a little earlier than my other group. maybe I could at least stop by.

Also a nice location to go play at is a certain Mc Donalds not far from my house I think on...Hawthorne maybe. They are totally cool with people meeting there to play games and have even said they don't even care if we buy any food, stay open all night, and of course if you get hungry, just walk to the counter and order something.

Redondo? Are you sure? I can only find info about a "Comic Bug" in Manhattan.

It looks like the Comic Bug is booked on Thursday, so we are going to meet Wednesday this week.  Let me know what time you can make it and I'll be there.  5 works great for me.

5:30 would be the more dependable time for me. I may not have a ride before then. Though yeah, 5 is fine for you folks. I'll just be a little late.

Going to play at the Comic Bug again this Thursday about 5:00.  Kingsguard let me know what chapter packs you have and the card you were looking for if you are planning to come.  Hope to see you there.

Okay lets see. I have the Core Set, Lords of Winter, Princes of the Sun, The Winds of Winter, City of Secrets, Secrets and Spies The Battle of Blackwater Bay, Tourney for the hand and Where Loyalty Lies.

As well as Street of Silk, a few other cards I'm looking for would be 

River Row

Warrior's Sons

Myrcella Lannister (Kings of the Sea)

Ser Balon Swann

Ser Arthur Dayne

Ser Gerlold Hightower (just 1)

Retaliation!

If you have any of these cards, I'd very much like a chance at trading for them.

 Damn it, I had this whole message written out once and for some reason my computer went back to the previous page when I hit delete. Annoying.

Anyways,

Well, todays games were.......crushing. I don't mind losing if I can say I put up a fight but jeeze. Today I had thoroughly lost every game by the first or second turn. It really goes far to exemplify how far my decks are from game-worthy.

Seriously? I have to defend 3 intrigue challenges by turn one, each one I lose costs me a character on top of the normal discard from intrigue AND a military challenge on top of that? I have no idea how I can compete with that.

 

I'll just come right out and say it; I'm discouraged. Part of me is starting to think maybe I should get out of the game before I spend anymore money on it. I'll give it some more time though I suppose. See you folks next week.

Sorry to hear that you are discouraged.  I would encourage you to stick with it, though! Our local community is really quite awesome and will always be willing to offer tips on how to improve.  If you are not already in the SoCal Thrones facebook group, you should join that, we answer deck building and strategy questions there fairly regularly.
