New Flash!

Just today I had noticed slashed hotel prices for the July gaming weekend. This might be a best time to purchase or cancel/repurchase bookings. The lowest I saw was $40/night. Special shout out to our playgroup north of Austin.

Check the hotels link on the OP.

Peace and Blessings!

Hey Chris,

on Saturday can we do both T1-2P and Booster Draft or is it just one or the other?

And end time eta for Saturday's tourney?

Hello Allen. Roy here for Chris. We are definitely going to do Booster Draft and T1 2Player on different phases so y'all get to play both. We hope to finish by 6pm but Booster Draft is notorious for taking too much time especially that we expect all players to do it. We give more time for newbies to pick cards. Worst case scenario we hope to be done by 7 or 8pm. We plan to do Booster Draft as 1st event of the day unless all want to do the T1/T2 2Player event phase first. We strongly encourage Booster Draft and Sealed Deck to be played in one phase but we will consider player majority choice. Thus, expect 2 or 3 phases. Then again, we wish to have only 2 phases if possible (BD/SD, then T1/T2 2Player).

Travel mercies to the Houston contingent!

Peace and Blessings.

To all Sealed Deck Players:

Please note OP and 2nd posting for latest fee adjustments and choices. We are trying to encourage brand new players with no other CCG experience to play this category instead of Booster Draft should we play both categories at the same time phase.

Thanks and Godbless.

To all doing FNR (Friday Night Redemption) a.k.a. Local Tournament please make sure to arrive early enough. We will begin drafting at 7pm. See me at the gaming hall. We will also finalize the fee structure for Sealed Deck. Then we all pay at the store gaming countet. I will then collect all receipts as I check you into the scoring spreadsheet.

Travel mercies to all driving/flying/bussing into San Antonio on both days.

Peace and Blessings!
