  2. We are having our regionals in Janesville this upcoming weekend if anyone can make it. https://www.facebook.com/events/129861770527826/
  3. Not to mention typically you won't (or theoretically shouldn't) know what deck you are facing next, so it wouldn't do any good to have multiple options available.

First up, we are proud to announce our Netrunner Regional Tournament on April 20th, 2013 at 1pm Entry Fee is $15 per player All players must bring both a Corporation and a Runner deck for this event.

Recently there has been an increase in interest for Netrunner and other LCGs in general, so I wanted to move our events from the previous slots all to Sundays so people can get together and play what they want! Our players are very relaxed and just like to have a good time, so stop on by!

  5. Hey everyone! Just wanted to let people know, starting in April we are shifting all of our LCG games to Sundays due to people wanting to play in other events such as Star Wars miniatures on Friday. Play will be from noon-4pm and we do have game night kits! There will be a nominal fee based on attendance when prizes are offered. (Just to cover the cost of our kits) Starting in May we plan on giving out a kit every week depending on interest! Let us know what you think! Come play your favorite LCG!
  6. The prequels introduced many assets that could be used in unique ways, look at what Decipher did with the podraces in the original Star Wars CCG, an alternate way to play with an arguably overpowered win condition. It comes down to the concept that some people do enjoy the prequels, and many kids and teens grew up with them and some even see 1-3 as "their" movies. If people are really going to get bogged down in the logic of Vader/Anakin existing on the same deck, they are in the wrong game. If you want realism or a "Star Wars Universe Sim" game, play the RPG. I would love to see iconic moments and characters from the prequel trilogy, especially Count Dooku, Mace Windu, General Grevious, and maybe new ways to play involving politics or negotiations. If people are really that uptight about it, then have two formats for play: "Classic" and "Prequel" One you can only use OT cards, the other you can use Prequel. (Or have three formats if people really want to splinter the playgroups) We have already seen cards with Mara Jade, so there is no doubt we will get at least hints of EU eventually in the game. Prequels aren't that farfetched.
  7. Yes, Swiss Draw and in an 8 person event each person would end up playing 6 games total. The more we play, the more we are seeing games come in under the 30 minute mark, it just comes down to familiarity.
  8. Hey Folks! Just wanted to invite anyone in the area to come play at Kryptonite Kollectibles in Janesville, WI. We have quite a few players interested in playing Star Wars on Friday Nights around 5:30pm-9:00pm, Sundays from Noon-4pm and after we get a solid base of regular players, we wil likely set up a specific tournament day for the Star Wars LCG. Everyone is in the learning stages of course, but there is a lot of excited strategizing and deckbuilding, so if you want to check things out, stop on by! We also play Star Wars Minis (Wizards) on Friday nights, so there are always Star Wars fans around to chat with. If you have any questions, just ask for JP, that's me! Our address: 1441 Plainfield Ave Janesville, WI, 535345 Questions? just email me or reply here!
  9. Roman_Sandal said: Once some form of points system for, for and against is worked out, I believe either SWCCG or the NR way will work fine. The main concern I have seen when chatting with people is: How long will one match (2 games, one each side) go for? (I don't think this can be done in an hour) A lot of people don't want to play a tie breaker, again because of time. I am a fan of either my original post at the start of the thread or how SWCCG was run, I don't mind either at least with the system my group is currently using, there is no need for a tiebreaker. Most players I have seen play at this point take about 35-40 minutes a game, but they are still in the "read every card that's played" stage. Once everyone entering a tournament is more familiar with the cards, there is no reason the games should take longer than 30 minutes, netrunner has 65 minute rounds, which feels more than adequate for any tournament level play. That said, I really don't expect serious tournaments to kick off for a month at least, which would provide people time to get acquainted with their decks. Locally we probably will use a bit longer of a time limit in the coming weeks, maybe 80 minute rounds, to take a bit of pressure off newer players. Either that or I may just keep an eye on how long games are taking in competive play and go from there.
  10. Locally, we have been planning on running our events in the same fashion as Netrunner, since that is the most likely way FFG will handle the tournament scenario. (It also has never been an issue for our Netrunner events. People love the ability to play two different decks in one round) As for the points decisions…that is the tricky part. But we shall see what happens. I hope it is as simple as A:NR or reasonably close to it. When I discussed the idea of only using one of the two decks per round, it was unanimously shot down. People are required to build two decks, and want to enjoy the experience of playing both of them. It is a core part of the game, so it only makes sense to exist in the tournament structure as well.
  11. I am doing demos at Kryptonite Kollectibles in Janesville, and have a few people very excited to get this game going. Most likely we will have Netrunner on Thursday evenings if things pick up, and possibly Sundays as well.
  12. Hey folks! I am JP Cupertino, events organizer for Kryptonite Kollectibles. We have had another resurgence of interest for Call Of Cthulhu LCG in the area, so we decided to offer some weekly events again to get CoC LCG players together every Thursday from 5:30pm-8:00 or so. Usually we do white bordered only for competitive play, but we welcome decks of all styles for fun. If there is a different day or time that would work better for you or your group, let us know, we would be happy to adjust if we can get a few more games in! We also keep a full line of all CoC LCG products available in-store in case you are looking for a certain Asylum pack. Hope to see you there! Let me know if you have any questions or ideas! Address: Kryptonite Kollectibles 1441 Plainfield Ave Janesville, WI, 53545
  13. Hey folks! I am JohnPaul "JP" Cupertino, events organizer for Kryptonite Kollectibles in Janesville, WI. We have a decent sized group of players who are looking to play some more with others out there, so we figured we would get a bit more organized and make Thursday our Warhammer Invasion day! Our players are very relaxed and just like to have a good time, so stop on by! When: Thursday Nights from 5-8pm (we can continue past that time if there is a tournament) Where: Kryptonite Kollectibles, 1441 Plainfield Ave, Janesville, WI, 53545 http://www.facebook.com/kryptonitekollectibles We will be starting out with open play and see how that goes for a month or so, and once we get a good feel on interest, we likely will move on to having tournaments with prizes and stuff! We are open to more ideas and input from the community, so if there is another day that might get more people, or if you have suggestions on getting the word out, let us know!
  14. Heyas all, On P11 of the rulebook, it says that "only one unit can be questing on any given quest card at any time." Is there a rule on playing a new unit onto that quest to replace it? We have been ruling it as you simply cannot play a unit at a quest if there is one questing, but I haven't seen official ruling or anything regarding if there is an option. Thanks a ton!
  15. The way I explain it to a lot of our regular gamers is simple: Warhammer: Invasion and LCGs in general are a great secondary game simply due to the pricing structure. $40 for the core set and $10 a month (soon to be 15 for better battle packs) is all it costs to have every card in the game. Skip one magic draft a month and you can get your Warhammer Battle Pack! The game is a blast to play and allows you to play the game out the way you want to, and has more strategy than simple "topdeck" luck that is often seen in games of magic or other TCGs.
