I feel like we could just give teams 5 minutes to figure their own cards, 5 minutes to trade with the other team, and 5 to finalize their deck (including sleeving and getting it set to be checked). That only 15 minutes and we have ALL night (except, ya know, Perkins).

Maybe, but we can see what the majority would prefer.

Sounds exciting.

I won't be able to get off from work, I'm too busy trying to host other tourneys in FL at the moment.  Thanks

Sealed TEAMS is a lot of fun.  I played it once at a Redemption for Micah tournament.

We just used one sealed deck for each team.  That way each team started with the same cards.  I think I&J would work great for that.

Then each team got to pick 6 boosters of any foil pack (or 9 prophets, or 18 original, or 3 TxP, or 3 Disciples).  They could then split up their card pool however they wanted.  They could give all the offense to one player and all the defense to another.  They could keep the starter decks intact and just trade in the better cards they got from packs.  They could take out all the defense and replace it with offense from packs.  Whatever they thought was the best strategy.

We didn't allow any trading with any other teams, and that did probably save time.  It was a really interesting tournament and everyone seemed to really enjoy it.  I'd be glad to try it again :)

Speaking of which I do plan on showing up to the T2-Only for the first time.  I've wanted to come for many years, and I'm glad to finally be able to make it!

I think adding G/H will provide for more variety and strategy as opposed to every game being an I/J vs I/J matchup. We may end up seeing one pairing do much better than the other but it's just for fun after all. I would even be willing to let each team pick its pairing initially and see if it doesn't split pretty evenly.

One rule for sure is that brothers cannot be team mates.

If that's actually a rule, I can be your backup plan. ;)

Well, being that the majority of people there will be brothers d in Christ, it'd be rather difficult to play the category. I mean, I don't think there will be enough girls there for each guy to not be with a bro.

(@Justin(and Tim)) Anyway, if Britta and Tim are there, dibs on Britta.

I should just be honest and say that 2 Alstads can't be teammates. It's just not fair. (Tim is now part of the Alstad family and Britta still is even if her name changed)

I know some muscle in KC. Let me know if you need some assistance in persuading the "Boss". It just wouldn't be the same without you, Matts not as much fun to pick on by himself.

Matt told me when he sold his cards that he wouldn't be playing. Has "brother" Matt changed his mind?
