Myself and a couple of my friends my be intersted in your bigger events, or when we are looking for a 4th. We're not really into the card sharing aspect. I have all the cards, and one of the guys I regularly play with has most of them. Keep me (us) in the loop

Hey, I'd love to get involved with this group. I have been looking for a regular play group for awhile. I already have a signficant card library but would be interested in focusing on one house to play more competitively.

Hallo, I might be interested in AGoT, but mostly replying here for Star Wars LCG (or LOTR LCG) and see if a playgroup evolves in Toronto. Thanks.

I am also a former competitive ccg player who literally just got into the agot lcg. I would like to join a group and play. Please reply to the post or pm me and we can arrange a game night.

Im also a player in the Montreal area, and would be very interested in going to a Canadian National, be it Ottawa even Toronto.
And for that Montreal player, Im on the North Shore.

I've sent personal messages to everyone interested on a number of forums so it looks like the group will be up and running soon. I've found players in Toronto, Mississauga, Bolton, and even Orangeville that are interested. Some are available on a weekly basis, while others are only able to attend once a month but that's fine by me.
The idea is to develop a competitive playgroup that's able to generate a lot of different ideas, and perspectives on the current meta. Plus one of my original reasons for getting into this game is the multiplayer aspect of the game. Not since Vampire the Etarnal Struggle have I seen such a well designed multiplayer card game. Hopefully with the number of players I've come across we can focus on both Joust and melee.
Looking forward to getting things started.

Well it looks like one of are local gaming stores (the comic book shop) is submitting an application for a regional event early in May in Ottawa Ontario. It will take place in their 100 table gaming area at the Ottawa ComicCon which had over 9,000 attendees last year and should bring in lots of people to play AGoT this year. If your planning on hitting a Canadian regional put this one down in your calendars.

This is fantastic - I've been trying to get a competitive meta going in Toronto for quite some time now. I urge you to speak with the management at 401 Games about this - I'm on good terms with them and they've expressed an interest in running Game of Thrones events. They've already preordered the Season One Game Night kits (as well as the Star Wars LCG kit).
They haven't yet figured out what days would be best - last I heard they were leaning towards Sundays or a weeknight early in the week (Monday or Tuesday).
Please keep this topic updated! I collect the cards and so wouldn't be splitting packs with you guys, but I'd love to see a regular tournament scene get started in TO.

I live in Hamilton, ON and I just got into the game a couple of weeks ago. I am currently learning to play with a couple fo friends. I have ordered my second core set and plan to buy the expansions soon. I have very little CCG experience, but I am heavy into the GoT board game. I really hope you guys get something going because I would eventually love to get competitive once I learn the game well and begin building custom decks in the next couple of months. I have been searching for a shop in southern Ontario that hosts aGoT game nights/tournements with no luck. I even find it hard to find stores that sell anything aGot:LCG related. I'm looking forward to eventaully playing against others. Keep me posted.

Strangly enough you can find a game in ottawa at the bars. Specificly the Farmteam Cookhouse and Bar (683 Bank Street) at 7:30ish pm on Tuesdays. So, you may want to look for a facebook group or other gaming group pages in your area to make sure people are not playing at a bar near you.
