  1. I am in the same position as OP. Is there any discussion or talk or place to lobby FFG for maintaining 1st Ed. events the same way Magic maintains legacy formats? I really want to avoid what happened when the CCG-LCG switch fiasco happened and I wasted thousand dollars catching up on CCG only to few months later be told that they would no longer support CCG-LCG transition as they first promised. I hope they are seriously considering maintaining event support for 1st Ed. for at least another year simultaneously with 2nd Ed. while 2nd Ed. can build up a card base. I realize that based on history this is probably not likely though
  2. Yes. Sorry Christian, my post was 100% referring to the OP , I just didn't make it clear that I was talking to you about the OP. Sorry for the confusion
  3. I've attended countless tournaments with John Bruno; observed him in countless tournament games, both against him and as a spectator. He plays so fairly that when he makes a mistake and you offer to let him take it back he consistently declines because it would not be fair to his opponent. The mere notion that John Bruno would recklessly throw away his integrity, reputation, and love for the game to have an edge against your friend is inconceivable. If John Bruno said it was too late to go back, in my experience that means he gave his opponent more than a fair opportunity to do whatever it was he wanted to do. In fact, he will very often times make sure the opponent confirms this by asking whether or not they have any actions etc. I've played the winter agenda against John Bruno something like 5 million times and I have very often forgotten to trigger its effect. Not once in my those 5 million games did I ever place the blame on him rushing an action. Every single time the effect didn't trigger it was 100% my fault. In game of thrones there is so much crap going on at all times that each player really is responsible for knowing his own cards. It was never John's responsibility to remind me of my triggers, in fact if he had done so, it would have made me a worse player. After all those games with him it forced me to learn from my mistakes and I eventually started playing winter agenda perfectly, never again forgetting to trigger its effect. I'll end with this: 1. It isn't your opponents responsibility to play your cards for you. 2. According to my vast experiences observing and playing against John Bruno, there is no way he would ever intentionally rush actions to deliberately deny a passive effect. 3. Your friend is probably like me a very slow player. Game of Thrones often requires players to play at a brisk pace given the time limits. Your friend was most likely awe-struck by the massive beat down John Bruno was laying upon him that, in his daze, he lost track of the time and believed that John Bruno was doing everything instantly whereas in reality your friend was remembering his winter effect too late and trying to justify time-machining by accusing him of cheating. 4. You are an unpleasant person. Bad trolls are bad trolls. Hiding being anonymous forum identity as the OP does is the epitome of weak sauce. The OP needs to grow some nuts or STFU
  4. I wish his new book would come out already. My favorite new fantasy series of all time. Probably one of the best wordsmiths ever in any genre. Your post is the only thing worth commenting on in this obviously malicious troll thread.
  5. Congrats on performing so consistently and solidly over the weekend! Great to see Penn State in the news for something positive!
  6. Yes this is a problem. I played two great extremely fun 2v2 games tonight with my gaming group. Only downside was that two models broke a little. One of the tube riser things broke off inside a TIE Advanced and then one of the X-Wings broke one of the four exhaust ports. I love these miniatures but they are a bit fragile, I recommend everyone be careful.

Which I will accept, but then will hand off to the first CA player I trounce that day (God knows there will be many). In fact, we can jus pass it back and forth between DC and CA all day, and the one stuck with it at the end buys the other meta a round post-tourney. This is funny and is actually like a running gag my family has had going for a while now. There is this awful record from the 1950s that was given as a gift at one wedding and then it was passed on and on to other family members as gifts for weddings and new babies. Its currently been passed around for 50+ years.

Its a great deal for painted IMO. you played Battletech in '88? welcome to the club. we must be old Great! Always nice to see old sci-fi mini gamers. And we aren't old, we're just young again
  10. badash56 said: Hi guys, I'm going to be in the Burbank area for work Dec 2-14th. I was wondering if there are any game stores in the area where I could play some cards? Thanks! badash, We play at Game Empire in Pasadena on Wednesdays which is 10-25 minutes from Burbank depending on traffic. Also sometimes on the weekends but its more irregular but we can keep you updated. Feel free to email me at surgeonofhistory@gmail.com and we can keep in touch
  11. How late is Emerald Nights open? I probably wouldn't be able to get there until 9:30 or so though. Also we are planning to do XWing at Kingdom Con in April 2013 so I'll keep you updated.
  12. I used to live up there but I'm now down in So Cal. However, we are going to be running XWing at KublaCon 2013 so I'll try to keep you updated.
  13. I would much rather see ships from the video games (like KOTOR) and Clone Wars instead of the far into the future EU stuff.
