I thought it might be useful to see who all is going to be playing in the Gencon tournament this year.
Was your decision at all influenced by the change where this is now only the North American championship instead of World? ie - I think the winner no longer gets to design a card, maybe not as nice prize for the winner?
Also, I have a question for the more experienced guys… How does the "practice tournament" work? I played in the main tournament last year but not the practice one.
What I'd like to do is bring a couple of candidate decks, test them in the practice tournament, and then pick which one I want to use for the real tournament. Can you do this or is it like the real tournament where you have to submit one deck list and can't change decks during the event?
ps - I don't know if anyone is interested, but just in case… I'll also be bringing my copy of War of the Ring if anyone would like to play that. No problem if you've never played, but be aware that teaching and your first game will take around 3 hours (it's pretty epic in scope). I'm nearly done painting all the figures so it will look really nice
