Made some revisions to the OP so please take note of the Official Hotel and Event Schedule. We will be playing Booster Draft as a 2-Player category at Nationals this year so you may want to play Booster in that way leading up to Nationals in order to prepare for the difference in game play and strategy.

May I ask, why the break in the traditional Friday spot for T1-2P?
Ironman 2016 and 2018 Winner.
3rd T1-2P 2018, 3rd T2-2P 2019

No you may not...just kidding.  :P

We wanted to put all the traditionally 2-player categories on Thursday. Putting the Booster Draft 2-player (arguably the most popular category at Nationals opposite the least popular category) on Friday which is usually the best attended day of Nationals. Teams, Sealed, and Type-2 Multiplayerr on Saturday in order to have a Type-1 option every day with Teams being considered Type-1.

Generally we are taking our experience hosting Nationals before and putting it to good use.

So is booster draft now two player and not multi, or is this just an exception for Nats?

And as hosts do we now have a decision whether we do multiplayer or 2 player tables after the initial draft?

More about 2-player Booster Draft to come shortly. I will start a new thread to facilitate discussion about that idea separately.

Any chance For Redemption national T-shirts this year?

“I went all the way to Texas nationals and all I got was this lousy shirt”

I personally love that idea. If you want to create a thread about possible t-shirt ideas, I would be willing to move forward with that idea. Once you have ideas, maybe create a poll and come up with a top two or three t-shirt ideas and we will get them printed for sale at Nationals with enough interest.

Looks like you just need to take SoG and 90% of the heroes out of your decks then   ;)

Bump

Cube draft and garage sealed? What are they?

Cube draft is a booster draft with pre-pulled cards.  So something like the 16 (this is a guess) best heroes and enhancements from each color.  Then some of the most useful artifacts, fortresses, sites, lost souls, etc,  Each pack has 15 (randomized) cards in it and you pick 4-6 packs then draft like a booster draft.  The biggest difference is once all the cards have been drafted you build your decks and play 1 on 1 games instead of multi-player games.

So basically it is booster draft with only good cards, and you play 1 on 1 instead of multi-player.

Garbage Sealed is each person gets 3 unlimited & 3 prophet packs (it could be 4 of each, I can't remember), and opens them and builds a deck with the cards they pulled and 7 generic lost souls.  You do not get to trade cards, so what you open is what you have to choose from.  It is basically a very nostalgic game, paying homage to the original days of Redemption, and a really fun way to get rid of all the old packs no one wants anymore.

Garbage draft sounds similar to an event that was ran each year in later years by Steve Braun which he called Retro Sealed.  Each person got an A or B starter deck, and there choice of three packs that they could pick from Unlimited and Prophets, and then would compete like normal sealed deck.  (This happened after A and B had been sufficiently retired.

I have fixed the issue causing you to only be able to choose one event. Thanks for your patience!
