How Does One Start (Looking in DFW TX area)?

11 posts in this topic

Hello,

 

So, eons ago when the Game of Thrones card game was a collectible card game, I had a friend in the area and we played the game like crazy.  Loved it.  My friend moved away and then I got money strapped and sold my old cards.  Which wouldn't amount to much anyway now that the game is an LCG.

 

So I have two questions.  If I was to play again, how would I even get started with so much out and would I even have a chance given the amount of cards I would not be able to purchase right off the bat?

 

Second, I am in the DFW area (close to the DFW Airport), is there players out here to play with?  Are they not teenagers (sorry but I tried to stay in the game when my friend left and the local store had a couple of teenagers and being then in my thirties, now forties, it was not a good experience)?  What would be ideal was if there was a couple who played where then I could get my wife to play again (she played before but prefered multiplayer games with her, me and my friend).

 

Anyway, I thought I would throw this out there and see what is what.

 

Thanks in advance,

JH

Hi Jesterhawk, I am a new player looking to play online via OCTGN and Skype (I'm in Maine).  I am also in my 40s.  I have read the rules pdf, and have ordered a core set to get familiar with the game.  Perhaps we could play some core set games, then gradually ramp up with some expansions?  My Skype name is Eric_B.

 

Anybody interested in helping a new player play as described above, please feel free to PM me.

I can't use OCTGN as I am on a MAC.  I appreciate the offer.

 

I spoke with my wife today and she actually wants to play this game again.  I am pysched.  Now, if I could find some other players in the area.

I am looking at coming out.  Just had my car go out and $500 later I am a bit short on things.  But I will be out as soon as I can.  Probably another couple weeks as next week I have my daughter move in for college.

 

Thanks!!

Ok, so I am back.  Life kind of batted me around a bit and I was not able to start like I wanted too.  The good news is that my wife is interested in playing with me as well in a casual fun setting.  And my birthday is next week and I told everyone I want GOT LCG Core set plus whatever else they want.  So I am thinking I will be able to start next week and am really excited.

 

WOOHOO!

 

So are there any players around?

Hey sir, we have a pretty good meta in the DFW area. Some of us meet at Area 51 in Grapevine on monday evenings. Many other meet at Madness Games & Comics in Plano on Sundays. Most of us are in our 20s, 30s and some 40s. Please send me a message if you are still interested.
