  1. I shared your story http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/958301/a-place-like-this-should-not-be-aloud-to-hold-regi. The other problem with this store is how rude the employes were about the situation. No apology or anything, just blamed it on us for not calling ahead and finding out they had limited space.
  2. So you are playing this now. Where do you play?
  3. You might be happy that it is a casual game, but there are a lot of us that want more prize support and more tournaments. I know if it does not change that the four of us that play are going to be done with the game. It is a good game, but it is not good enough to just play casually. There are to amny much better games to spend my time and money on if there is no local support.

And really if not playing rush, good luck getting 3 rounds in in under the 50 minute time limit. Yeah, I really think I'm gonna bump the rounds up to an hour and a half. Wow I am glade I am not playing in that tournament.
  5. Actually the card that helps the Ork decks to much is Troll Vomit. It is to much of a control card that can reset the game in their favor. It needs banned before the other stuff. Without it they are just a rush deck. Not that I think things need banned though.

This past weekend, the LCG Mega-event at the FFG Events Center was the first AGoT Regional of the season, which lasts the next two months.... ...and no one has said anything about it?!? Usually by now, we're in a wash of "good luck" messages, "what was the field?" messages and even "who won?" messages. Was it just a busy weekend for the board community, did everyone travel to MN and thus wasn't around to post, or are we - as a community - just not as interested? Oh, BTW: What was the field like? Who won? I meant to respond in the other thread about the event yesterday, but I think I got sidetracked answering the question about seasons decks. I was really curious to know what the field was like though and what happened. Can anyone else who was there give some perspective on the player who was disqualified for having an illegal deck (story in the main AGoT)? It sounded like a bad situation, though the person who posted it here has never posted kind things about AGoT. I am not sure what you mean I have never posted kind thing about AGoT. I have never posted anything about this game. My only post was about what things to buy to get started in the game and people where very helpful with that. I personally like this game a lot and want to get into it more.

  8. I agree that the time is going to to an issue. I think after time is called there should be a rule of giving each player maybe three more turns. This would not help over all, but would help for the close games that are in there third game.
  9. I can tell you the lady you played is a very good player. She has played many other CCgs and has done well at them as well. She is new to the game and does not know all the cards, but she knew the meta game because she plays with our play group.

So we are new to Game of Thrones and he decides to play in the tournament after he played in the Warhammer tournament. In the warhammer tournament the new cards that came out last week were legal. So my friend just figured that the new GoT cards must be legal as well. So becau8se we has a very small card pool he puts them in not knowing they were no legal. In his very first game he plays one of the illegal cards an the guy he is laying say6s it is not legal yet. So my friend explains to him that he is new and did not know, but the guy makes the huge deal of it. He calls over a judge and makes sure my friend gets disqualified and is very rude to my friend. My friend would have easily gave him the win because he was not there to win, but just to learn the game. So now my friend has about the worst experience he could have had in this game. We were both looking forward to going to Gencon to play GoT, but know I just don’t know. Sorry my typing is very bad here. I was trying to type as I was talking to my friend and I was a little upset.

  12. The last I heard there were 12 people at the tournament.

It's not like you can change your deck anyway. Weird. Different people have different views on that. Some people regard it as gaining an unfair advantage, others as simply tournament gamesmanship. In particular in the Raw Deal example I gave, knowing your opponents deck could allow you to neutralise his entire strategy, so scouting actually was actually the process of gaining an in-game advantage. In WH:I you get into a similar situation as a Orc/Skaven player if you've done you groundwork effectively and by the second round of the tournament know basically everyones decks. Against every single Judgement deck you now know to developments from turn 1, and you know the Order decks which aren't running judgement, and so don't developments against them. Some people would class that as an unfair playing advantage, others as "just what happens at tournaments". Being able to change your playstyle to adapt to your opponents strategy is undoubtly useful, but I don't see how T.O.'s are suppose to differenciate the normal chatter of excited players between rounds conversing and socialising with their friends about what just happened, from players who are actively scouting. Indeed, the two concepts crossover so much that to consider doing so is probably a fools errand. It's fair to comment though that some players get really, really steamed up about this issue. So you are an Ex- Raw Deal player? I played Raw Deal from the start until the end. That was a great game and scouting happened all the time because of pre-match cards. I never found it to be that big of a deal because you built your deck to adjust to cards you where worried about. So how long did you play Raw Deal? Were are you from?
