Aww... that's the only one you guys grabbed? That's too bad... guess I'm hoping that it's worth enough that I can trade it for the LS to someone then.

If I'm able to attend this tournament, I would trade you the promo LS for your Watchman promo.

FYI, when you register for a local tournament you can only select one promo. If a host has run a lot of tournaments, they may have extra copies of the other promos so they can offer those as well, but newer hosts probably won't be in that situation.

Really excited to see WI tournaments again, and definitely hoping it works out for me to make it.  8)

I'll be glad to take that deal.

The only reason I'm thinking I might have to trade for it is it sounds like the Triplets didn't ask for it. But yea, I know the whole I can choose a promo. =)

Sounds good.

I meant that when you send in an application for a tournament, you can only pick one promo to give out. When Noah registered, he would not have been able to request both the LS promo and the Watchman promo.

Potentially John E and myself.

If you're able to make it that would be awesome!

Noah, I don't suppose you'll have any of the new packs for booster draft in time for next week's tournament, would you?

We just placed our order of RoJ packs today. We'll hope they get here in time, but I can't say for certain.

Huh, that must have changed, because when I held my tournament I choose multiple promos and I got them. But then again that was 4 years ago...

John E and I are planning to come, but we're wondering if anyone has a place we could crash Friday night? We're hoping to avoid having to drive there and back all in one day.

I'm kinda hoping that we don't have much RoJ in this tournament as I already sunk $50 some into a bunch of cards for the last format as I was expecting for it to be printed later. And now I'm seeing why other games have a release date where cards become tournament legal for everyone...

Other games tend to also have more money available to ensure that cards become tournament legal for everyone because it allows them to make more money. Other games also cycle out several older expansions from tournament play each year so that individuals have to buy newer cards.

RoJ will not be legal for this T1 tournament--if they're available they can only be used in Booster draft.

RoJ becomes legal for tournament use on May 26th.

Bumping this...anyone have a bit of space to spare Friday night? I may have a complete set of the new cards to show off...  ;D

Um, I only know of Magic that cycles Sets. Most others that I play don't. (Yugioh, Vanguard, Buddyfight, etc). As for being tournament legal, all other games (even small ones) have always had a release date/tournament legal date as long as they had tournaments. I'm honestly glad that Redemption is now doing that as well. It usually doesn't take money to ensure it though. (Most companies like Konami just make it that you can't get the set until the week it's tournament legal and everyone knows when that is)

either way, I'm happy.

Thanks again for hosting, had a great time!

(Well, other than being soul-droughted by Master Q...  ::))

P.S. In case anyone was wondering, Every Tribe is better than you'd even imagine in Booster Draft... ;D

Yeah, the drought in our game was pretty ridiculous. 50 card decks are capable of more drought than I would've thought (somehow ANB and Mayhem don't produce souls). This isn't even mentioning my game with John, which was similar but not quite as terrible. I should've been the one with the "Bad Beets" sleeves. :P

And if Noah W didn't have Barnabas to pull up souls, he would've been droughted too! Makes me glad for a certain soon-to-be-legal card. 8)

Thanks to everyone who was able to make it.

I had a great time and hope you all did as well.

I'll be posting information concerning the next couple tournaments soon.

I can't wait until the next tournament. =)

Hopefully next time there are more people that bring stuff to trade.

I updated the OP with information about the next two upcoming tournaments.

We're planning on hosting both tournaments at our home because we haven't heard back whether or not the church we hosted at before will be available. I'll let you know if anything changes.

I decided to have them both be districts, so we get the promos sooner than later, and I moved the proposed tournament on the 17th to the 24th, so that it doesn't conflict with Minnesota State which we are going to try and attend.

For booster draft, I was thinking about either doing 5 RoJ packs, if that's possible, or one each of Disciples, Early Church, Persecuted Church, Cloud of Witnesses, and Revelation of John. Your thoughts on what would be good for booster are appreciated since we will be ordering packs in the next couple of days.

Whatever you guys want to do for booster is fine with me, I have no preference.

I do not think I'll be able to make the June 3rd one as I'm going to ICHE instead. =(

I'd love to do both drafts, but I suppose if I had to choose one it would be the one with the variety of boxes. But that's only one vote.
I would love to do both as well  8) The variety would be official and the other would be for fun.

Yes, I have an Everlasting Beings (RoJ) I would be willing to trade.

Just so everyone knows, I updated the OP with information about another upcoming tournament.

In the next week or so I will be sending in an application for a tournament in the month of August following Nationals and I am wondering if there are any Saturdays that don't work for anybody that month.

Awesome. I'll try to get it from you before the tourney then. Also, do you have a Angel of Might as well? (Need him too.)

As much as I'd like to come out there for another tournament, I'm not sure I should do 3 weekends in a row.  :P

We'll see how July goes and perhaps I'll dash out there for the 29th.  8)



P.S. It looks like Rob accidentally marked your July tournament as June 29th...and for some reason he put it under the 2017-18 tournament listings...  :P

Yes, I also have an Angel of Might. I would be willing to trade both Everlasting Beings and Angel of Might for Dissension in Antioch and Deluders if you have them.
