SAVE THE DATE!
New York will host this year's 8th Annual Black Friday Joust Tournament on Saturday, calling it "Red Saturday." The date has been moved from Friday to Saturday to accommodate travelers who traditionally attend this annual event.
Location has not yet been finalized--2-3 options are under consideration. The venue will be accessible by public transportation. More details will be announced on these message boards and at www.Meetup.com/Thrones as the date approaches.
As New York's largest joust (1v1) event of the year, participants will have the opportunity to take home a variety of prizes, including the Red Saturday Trophy.
COMPETE FOR CONTROL OF THE REALM!
The event will follow standard FFG guidelines for a 1 vs. 1 “Joust” competition. FFG lists full rules for competitive play on its website (www.fantasyflightgames.com).
• Five preliminary rounds of “Swiss” styled 1 vs. 1 pairing, with cut to top four or top eight (depending on turnout) for quarter- or semi-finals.
• All A Game of Thrones LCG cards released by or before November 1, 2012 are legal for this event, excluding those “banned” for competition in FFG’s most recent FAQ.
• The event will adhere to the most recently posted FAQ on FFG’s website, posted here: http://www.fantasyfl...eidm=10&esem=4.
CASUAL MELEE ON FRIDAY, NOV 23
For those who are in NYC on Friday, November 23, we will hold a casual melee tournament at 1:00pm. This will not be part of the official tournament, but we will have some limited prize support (and bragging rights throughout the year). This is a fantastic opportunity to connect with friends you rarely see, and will likely involve a late-night trip to a nearby restaurant/bar.
For questions about either event, prizes, or legality of cards, please post here or contact Dan with the NYC Night’s Watch at NightsWatchNYC@gmail.com.
