  1. There are many games to choose from, but I have to choose the Gen Con Kotei where Yoritomo Utemaro (XP 2) debuted. I had been playing Mantis since I started the game during Samurai, and I was having a good time. On this occasion, I sat down across from a Spider player named Mark. I had a really good match-up against Spider because my deck expected to go second and didn't need the extra gold you got at the time from going second. So, when I flipped over Mr. Utemaro on my first flip, we both knew where this game was going. I looked up at Mark and apologized. What followed was the most jovial loss I have ever seen, with Mark not salty at my luck, but more happy that I made the game as quick as possible. This is why I'm so excited for this game. The rules were always a nightmare for new players, and I don't particularly expect that to change. However, the community who is already committed to this game is by far the best community I've ever played with. Mark wasn't an outlier. I've played with people who happily concede by searching for a then illegal Gifts and Favors (he fails to find); people who had already made top 16 come over while I'm flustered at my tie-breaking opponent no-showing, play a short game and compliment me on my deck; people whose eye light up when they realize a card interaction they hadn't thought of is going to lose them a game. No matter what FFG does to this game, it is the community that is bringing me back.
  2. There are extra copies of Crypsis and Melange in the Game Night Kits specifically for the TO. I don't see why he or she should have access to extra copies of a prize he or she already gets when there may be players who miss out completely.

We are very excited about hosting another tournament here at Labyrinth. After rereading the tournament rules, there is no restriction on recently printed cards in tournament play. As such, everything that is available for purchase will be legal for this tournament; this means that if A Study in Static gets to stores by the first week in March, it will be legal for play. So that we know how much prize support to get, we ask that everyone please RSVP by calling 202-544-1059 or emailing the store at kathleen@labyrinthgameshop.com.
  6. We are hosting another event: What: Android: Netrunner Free Play Where: Labyrinth Games and Puzzles 645 Pennsylvania Ave SE When: Sunday, January 6th, Noon to 6pm There will be no cost to play, and new players are encouraged to join.
  7. I feel like fast and aggressive is supposed to mean "good early game to the detriment of the late game." Their icebreakers support that theory.
  8. Corp: Toss up between Tollbooth and Scorched Earth. Runner: Toss up between Stimhack and Account Siphon
  9. We have just confirmed that we will have the Game Night Kit for this event.
  10. We will be charging a $5 entry fee to cover prize support. Please email kathleen@labyrinthgameshop.com or call us at 202-544-1059 to sign up.
  11. ShubFan27 said: Any more info on this event? I'm interested in what the prizes are, the start time, etc. I'm about four hours away but definitely want to make it over to practice for worlds the following weekend. So: What: Android: Netrunner Tournament and Free Play Where: Labyrinth Games and Puzzles 645 Pennsylvania Ave SE When: Sunday, November 4th, 11am We will be running demos along with the tournament. We're hoping to build a Netrunner community here in DC, so this event will act as a meet-and-greet. We have limited space and are unsure how popular the event will be. If you would like to ensure yourself a space, please call the shop at 202-544-1059.
  12. Hey guys, just so you know, there is a kids' D&D day happening Saturday afternoon and a pokemon class after that. If you wanted to come by Sunday (or reserve a table for Sunday) that should be fine. You can see our event calendar on our website at Labyrinthgameshop.com or call the store at 202-544-1059.
  13. Have you ever played online? If you get outside your play group and play a game, you might figure out your problem: www.boardgamegeek.com/guild/1387|BGG octgn.gamersjudgement.com/viewtopic.php
  14. More ICE. If you don't hit your Tollbooths, or if the Runner can mitigate them, you're gonna have a bad time.
  15. Also, Account Siphon means that Decoy and Crash Space will actually be worth playing outside of the NBN/ Weyland matchup. Criminals have the tools: use them.
