  1. Rebooting the Server for 2014! Our weekly casual Netrunner League returns to Monday Nights hosted by Games Hub Edinburgh and supported by Red Dice Games . The Edinburgh City Grid casual league is free to join and beginner-friendly. Players turn up on a Monday night and play in a round-robin format. Decks can be changed or tweaked on a weekly basis, but we ask that players stay within faction for that month's league. On the last weekend of the month we'll host an open tournament where players bring their finalised decks. Decklists will be required. Once a quarter we'll host an open tournament using the official FFG Prize support kits subject to availability. https://www.facebook.com/events/461830800587900/
  2. We were very lucky to get hold of the incredibly scarce (to the UK) Season 1 and Season 2 Game night Kits for our league & tournaments, but I don't think any Season 3 made it to the UK at all I've just checked on a certain auction site and there are *14* (14!!) out of an original 19 Season three playmats on sale from US retailers... If you're not running tournaments with them, send them to metas that will!
  3. Hiya Is this in USD/ Canadian? And would you consider posting the House cards to the UK?
  4. Agreed. We did a bit of reseach when we set up our league and found the original OP material from FFG - voting for future cards etc. All that sort of stuff looks awesome and would be great to participate in. I've always been envious of the AEG storyline prizes for L5R, but with the upcoming Netrunner tour, maybe FFG are slowly coming back round to this way of OP?
  5. Yeah, I'm not terribly excited by Davos and Drogo Playmat, but SW... isn't that awesome?! We're running a SW tournament this weekend using the "Season 2" kit - the playmat, Luke and Vader's Tie look frikkkin amazing!
  6. 12th October 2013 @ the Edinburgh Games Hub 11:30am £5 Entry Shapers vs Haas Bioroid! A belated celebration for the release of the Creation & Control expansion. Get your Green and Purple on as the restriction for this tournament is that all Corp and Runner decks must be HB and Shaper respectively. Using the Season Two Games Night Kit we've got a sweet playmat and some sexy full art cards as prize support. We'll be running a sanctioned tournament every quarter now, as the culmination to the weekly leagues so keep an eye out for updates.

  8. As previous posts - the stone house cards are definitely of interest. I'm throwing my hat in the ring and am interested in the set of stone house cards and the two promo decks of Wildlings and Circle of Spies. Otherwise please post a link if you do decide to ebay :-)
  9. TWO Opportunities?! I'm coming in November - when is/was the second tournament?!

  11. Breach the Wall! Stake your Claim as King of the North! House GamesHub in Edinburgh welcomes challengers from the Noble Houses of Glasgow, Newcastle, Durham and any roaming Hedge Knights to present themselves at Castle GamesHub to stake their claim as King of the North! Format will be 4 rounds of Joust followed by 2 rounds of Melee. Prizes abound, not just the glory of winning! but also a Playmat, full-art cards and custom power tokens! £5 Entry. https://www.facebook.com/#!/events/585930554792124/
  12. Can you just confirm - are you playing with one core set plus the Queen of Dragons big box expansion? Are you playing Melee or Joust? If you have a limited card pool and are playing melee with the prebuilt decks straight out of the Core Set then yes, that dragon deck will be a power house compared to the others and has an unfair advantage including cards from a Big box expansion! You could either invest in another Core Set and/or the other big box expansions to beef up the other Houses (and introduce Greyjoy and Martell) , or use the single Core Set to build a more competitively tuned Joust deck and challenge your GF to a Joust match rather than melee. With one core set your best bet is probably to build a controlling Lannister Deck that kneels the Dragons before they can attack, or a Stark Deck to try and overwhelm them. There are only single copies of powerful plots like Valar in the Core Set so you want to ensure they're all in the one deck! Check Cardgamedb.com for more info and deck lists.
  13. I'm the local Greyjoy fanatic in Edinburgh and for Joust I've been using (and winning with!) a House of Dreams/Longship Grief deck using Raiders with the Euron that gives other Raiders stealth. I've found that works well, but maybe just in our very limited Meta. Melee is slightly more forgiving so you can have a bit more fun with mill decks in this format :-) I really wanted to make the River Plots work, but to be even in with a chance you can really only use the mill plot and the one that sends a card to the top of your deck. I use this with "Mill Euron", The Reader, all the other Raiders with Mill effects and Corpse Lake. I've been toying around with adding Winter to the mix for Frostang Peaks and Winter Armada. In addition, you want to try to win Dominance so I include 3 Cogs. Helps with Initiative too. As much as I love Mill, it's not yet viable for Joust. As much as I love Greyjoy, they currently get pipped by Stark (assuming from your post that these are your choices)
  14. As part of the Games Hub's May The Fourth activities we're running an introductory tournament for the Star Wars Living Card Game. Prizes up for grabs but don't let the Wookie win! :-) We'll be running a demo before hand and will have decks available available. More details to follow but put the date in your diary :-) https://www.facebook.com/events/120028641527318/ https://www.facebook.com/GamesHubEdinburgh
  15. We Dinnae Sow! House Greyjoy wins the first A Game of Thrones LCG Scottish Regional Tournament! Thanks to Spellbound Games and Paul Mclachlan for running the first official Regional event for Scotland's burgeoning AGoT scene. Sadly only 5 players turned up (come on Scotland! You're better than that!) and my House of Dreams / Longship Grief deck won undefeated. The rest of the field comprised Targ Hollow Hill, Greyjoy Black Sails, Lannister HoD with Tunnels of the Red Keep and Martell Brotherhood. Props to James, Mark, Paul and Bryan for being worthy opponents - I couldn't have done it without your bad draws! ;-)
