  1. I'm the Events Coordinator for Red Castle Games in Portland, OR. KeyForge is proving very popular at my store so I'm now hosting 2 KeyForge events per week. Normally I've been running chainbound on Thursday nights. However, I'm switching my chainbound day over to Sundays starting 3/3/19. My problem: GEM won't allot me a chainbound event for 3/3/19 because it thinks I've used up my 1 event for the week. I would rather not have to wait until 3/10/19 to switch from Thursdays to Sundays. Can you allot my account 1 event for 3/3 so I can make the switch this week? Please PM to discuss this issue and I can give you my cell number. Thank you, Matt
  2. Red Castle Games is hosting an Invocation event this weekend on Saturday, March 2nd starting at 12 PM. There is only 1 spot left! These events are rare so if you're a fan of Arkham Horror, this is your last chance to get a ton of unique swag! This event is limited to 4 players. The entry fee is $25. You can register in the store or online at the following link: Red Castle Game's Invocation Event Online Registration Each player will receive a copy of the Eternal Slumber scenario plus the following special AHLCG items only available through this event: • Invocation Playmat • Promo card dividers to sort your collection. • A pair of extended art Lucky! cards. Check-in starts at 12 PM. Please bring 2 different investigator decks. Follow the Stand Alone scenario rules for deck-building found on page 19 of the Rules Reference Guide (i.e. you may spend XP to include higher level cards by taking additional random basic weaknesses). If you have any questions, please contact Matt at events@redcastlegames.com.
  3. By the way, I need to amend my favorite moment from yesterday’s tournament. It has to be when Greg C picked the acrylic turn dial as his 1st place prize… and then gave it to Tory Z who had been wanting to win one for a very long time. It’s these kinds of moments that make me realize how unique the Armada community is among competitive gamers, and that we’ve got something special in our local player base.
  4. Thanks to all the Admirals that came out to Red Castle yesterday for our tournament! We had 10 players battle it out with a diverse array of commanders, from Konstantine to Leia, Ackbar, Vader and Jerjerrod. We also played some objectives that don't see as much use as people were willing to experiment with their lists and choices, including a pair of Opening Salvos and Salvage Run. My favorite part was seeing some new faces, including a new player who came in second place (tied on points with first at 15 and 20~ behind on MoV). We'll be doing this again next month on Saturday, March 23rd. Hope to see you there!
  5. A quick reminder that Red Castle's February Armada tournament is this Saturday (2/23). Check-in starts at 11 AM. I've also added some new goodies to our "Prize Wall" which now includes an acrylic turn dial. Every participant gets to make 1 pull from the wall, though that can include a batch of promos depending on what you take!
  6. Totally understandable, @Karneck. It's quite a haul to Portland for a day of Armada! I plan on holding monthly tournaments at Red Castle so hopefully we'll see you at our event in March.

  12. @idjmv We've got a great Armada community in the Portland-Vancouver area. Everyone is very friendly and welcoming regardless of how long you've been playing. If you're looking to get in a game, Red Castle Games has Armada open play every Sunday morning starting at 11 AM. I would either post here asking for a match or go to the Portland Armada FaceBook page: Armada Admirals of Portland Red Castle is also hosting a tournament on Saturday, January 26th. This is a casual, beginner-friendly event and a great way to meet new players. Here's a link: Red Castle Armada Tournament 1/26

  14. 6TH PLACE Our next player is someone who needs no introduction to the PNW Armada community. @Admiral Theia came in 6th place with 20 points and 231 MoV. Michelle was flying a triple Cymoon list commanded by Moff Jerjerrod — JJ must've realized doubling his efforts wasn't quite enough to please the Emperor so decided 3 ISDs would do the trick! Michelle won all 3 of her games, but they were close-fought affairs (8-3, 6-5 and 7-4 respectively). This is likely due to the fact that she had the hardest Strength of Schedule out of the top 12 players (and 3rd hardest overall). She faced our 4th-place finisher in her opening match, and then the player who was in 3rd place after round 1 in her second game. A few things that stood out for me regarding Michelle's fleet: 1. It played fast — her games were always the quickest each round. When facing a long day of Armada this can be a real advantage as mental fatigue sets in. 2. She had fun objectives you rarely see in competitive events. We're all familiar with the Most Wanted, Contested Outpost and Superior Positions suite, so it was nice to see someone take a chance and break out of the objective rut while still making smart choices that played to their fleet's strengths. With no bid, Michelle obviously planned to go second some of the time and appeared very comfortable with that choice. It was great to have both Blockade Run and Fleet Ambush see play at our regional. While her Blockade Run match turned out to be anticlimactic, Michelle's Fleet Ambush battle vs Tory's Raddus Liberty list was truly engaging and one of the best games I witnessed all day. Here's a short photo-sequence of Michelle's Fleet Ambush match vs Tory: Tory deploys his fleet spread out in order to maximize his Raddus drop. His ships are coming in hot at speed 3 and 4. Michelle tags a flotilla on turn 1 but it scatters the attack. However, the CR90 flying up the middle is not so lucky and it gets vaporized on turn 2. Raddus drops a fully-loaded Star Cruiser right behind Michelle's battle line! Michelle's fleet breaks up (after dumping their garbage as is standard Imperial protocol). Tory brings 1 ISD down to a single hull point but can't finish it off. Michelle edges out Tory for the win, 182-146.
