I want to make this part of my summer vacation so bad. Even if it’s just to see Mark Underwood and his family!

It would've been great to see you too Rob!  I didn't make it to Nats this year, but perhaps I'll be able to in 2026.  Currently I have to drive my kid to North Dakota for college around the same time, and can't make back-to-back trips that far.

The AR State tournament was awesome!  Having Roy and Terry there was just a special treat, and I really appreciate them making the drive to join us.  Jamie did a great job hosting.  The venue was perfect, thanks to my friend Stephen.  And we had some top tier judging with the extra addition of Redemption Elder, Joe, who I just met and appreciated some of his outside-the-box thinking on the future of Redemption.

There were about a dozen players and we covered 5 different categories during the tournament.

T1-2p (Classic)
I played in this one with 3 others.  We went 3 rounds, so everyone played everyone.  I ended up winning this one in a close game over Joshua, who I remember had really strong defense.

Sealed Deck
There were I think 6 players in this event.  I think Joe won, and I remember hearing that 2nd place was a young kid who was playing Sealed for the first time.  So that's fun.

T1-TEAMS
I wasn't here for this event, and can't comment on what happened.

Booster Deck
I wasn't here for this event, and can't comment on what happened.

T1-2p (Rotation)
We had 8 players in this event, and we went three rounds.  I won my first two games and ended up going against Joshua again in the championship.  This time his defense was extremely strong again, and we ended with a timeout, which he was winning.  It was a great event, and I think everyone enjoyed themselves.

Lots of people opened prize packs and discovered amazing cards.  And the overall tournament was just a big boost for excitement about Redemption in general here in Arkansas.  The plan is to start having regular playtimes and more regular tournaments throughout this coming year.
