NYC Thronestoberfest: 10/12

Recommended Posts

I cant make it i dont think. for a moment it looked like we where not gone have thanksgiving at my house...now it seems we are 8(

~If there's seven other people there, they won't even notice you're missing! If anything, they'll wonder why the atmosphere's so nice this year! Besides, seven is a lucky number! You wouldn't want to be the jerk who jinxes that, would you?

Yeah, I wouldn't recommend playing with just a core deck. Those decks were meant to be balanced with each other in melee.

Do you guys live in New York City? If you're interested in the game, we'd love to have you at one of our weekly meetups - we play every Thursday night in Midtown Manhattan. We're new player friendly; we'll help teach you how to play and deckbuild. But it would be hard to jump right into a competitive tournament with just a core set.

PM me for more info.

~Is there going to be a raffle?

 

~If I were to come, can I bring a deck with more than one restricted card in it?  How about a deck of all proxies? 

 

~Can I create a card and use it in my deck?  I assume this is okay as long as the artwork and handwriting is legible.

Jealous I can't make it to this--

Sandy--next time you are out in SF hit me up again! this time for some thrones action.

Absolutely.  At the latest, my next trip up there will be mid-Jan.  I'll remember my deck.

Anyone who's around on Friday Night - we'll be playing casual pick-up melee at Cranberry Cafe, 115 West 45th Street, Manhattan. Come up to the second floor. I imagine we'll be playing from 6pm or a little before until whenever we get tired. Let me know if you're planning on coming.

Amid rampant speculation that we will see a new FAQ his week, I want to make clear that, if we do get a new FAQ between now and Saturday, we WILL abide by the new FAQ for Thronestoberfest. That means that all players will need to keep an eye on the news and be ready to make last-minute adjustments to their decks in the event of new restrictions. Thanks!

We ended up with 18 players from at least 4 states.  I don't have the full stats yet, but this is a start.

 

Seeding after five rounds of swiss Swiss:

 

1.  Dave S: Baratheon / KotHH / The Viper's Bannerman

2.  Aaron G: Targaryen / HoD / The Dragonpit / The Hatchlings' Feast

3.  Sandy B: Greyjoy / Black Sails / Fury of the Kraken

4.  Dan S: Targaryen/ Song of Ice / Long Lances

5.  Britt F: Stark / No Agenda / No Quarter

6.  Jim M: Greyjoy / Song of Ice / Fury of the Kraken

7.  Roger D: Martell / No Agenda (Quentyn) / Game of Cyvasse

8.  Corey S: Greyjoy / Song of Ice / Asha

 

Top 8:

 

8. GJ SoI def. 1. Bara KotHH

2. Targ HoD. def. 7. Martell Quentyn

6. GJ SoI def. 3 GJ Black Sails

5. Stark No Agenda def. Targ SoI

 

Top 4:

 

5. Stark No Agenda def. 8. GJ SoI

2. Targ HoD def. 6. GJ SoI

 

Sticking with the spirit of the event, we played the final round at the bar.  I'm sure there will be photos as some point.

 

Finals:

 

5. Stark No Agenda def. 2. Targ HoD

 

Congrats to Britt, who played a great old-school stark murder warcrest deck, just crushing most everything in his path.  I don't think I've ever seen someone use Time for Ravens to tutor for Riders of the Red Fork before.  That was fun.  I'm sure he'll do a tourney report later on, but that's it for now!

I find your lack of Lannsiters disturbing...

 

Thanks for the update though!

We had at least 3 lannister players that I saw (2 tunnels and a clansmen)

Every house was represented by multiple decks.    

 

Congratulations to Britt - Boston players: yes, there is a meta there!  And thanks and congrats to Dave for putting together another fun and successful event.  Thanks to Dan and Dennis for their raffle prize donations.
