Is this the SoCal regional, or will that be at a later date?

Well, HOPEFULLY this will be the SoCal regional.  I am sending in the application tomorrow.

Either way, we are expecting quite a big turnout.

In the past, SoCal always ran a Regional event AND a Regional was held at Kublacon, but then some loser in Los Angeles that ran these events took a THREE-YEAR break from the game and SoCal took a while to build back up.  Now, SoCal is ready to host a real Regional event again!

KingdomCon is gonna rock!!!

It is on my radar...that is all I can say. It is the week after my Alumni Basketball Tourney, so might be a tough sell with the better half.  But I have some chips to maybe turn in (she was in Hawaii for a week in January, and is currently in Canada skiing while I am Mr. Mom both times).    Might ask for some floor space, since I assume I won't be sleeping much regardless. 


Oh, King eh? Very nice...

Update:

Badges are still available online ($45 for 3 day, $30 for 1 day).  After April 6th, online registration will be closed and tickets can be bought at the convention at a slightly higher price.

And we will require deck lists for Saturday's Regional, so get there early.

For those of you driving down tomorrow for the melee, please drive safe!

I would try to be in San Diego by 4, or else commute traffic really starts to suck.   Melee at 6pm!!!!

We're hoping to break 30 players for the Joust on Saturday a noon.

Top Four Houses were:

 

Mathlete (Martell)

Jason (Greyjoy WInter)

The King G (Greyjoy/Lannister Alliance)

Tiny Grimes (Greyjoy Maesters)

 

 

This was telling because almost 50% of the 32 players in Joust were using Stark. Stark was by far the most popular House; they were all over the place.

Congratulations to all of our finalists, and especially to our Champion, John Bruno.

Thanks a lot for this! Exemplary, all TOs should post detailed stats like these after their tourneys.

Interesting stats too. Atypically large amount of Stark for an American event, but not really strong results for them. A lot fewer Martell decks than I'd expected. I'm guessing the old pieces of wisdom (Europeans play Stark, Americans play Martell) are less and less valid. And what's up with Lanni? Can nobody build a competitive Lanni deck anymore? I'm convinced they're able to put out tier 1 decks.

Very strong showing by GJ yet again. Interesting that so many ran FoW and no one ran the Fury plot. I guess that means nobody ran To Be A Kraken?

Congratulations to Mathlete and to the other finalists, especially to Tiny Grimes, whom I had the honour to play a few times on OCTGN and who did tremendously well considering he only picked up the game a few months back. There's no disgrace losing against Bruno, the guy could win with a deck built by a drunk monkey the night before the event.

I want to know whats up with those 2 bara players.....no restricted????!!!! ...no narrow escape, val, or even fury....hard to digest, especially since they both probably ran TLS x3 or 2. Better luck next regional.

Question.....where all the Greyjoy decks choque ones?? even the alliance one??
