My personal favorite memory was the first day during Closed Deck when we were about to start round 7 after I looked at the rankings.  There were 6 members of our little play group in the top 10.  Cool.

Sorry, Marcus.  The promo is the new Captured Ark.  Looking forward to seeing how many new Faith of Our Fathers make it into Type 1 and 2 decks this year.

I've got a Blue/Silver type-1 deck with a Gold/Gray Emperor defense that looks pretty good.

I haven't quite gotten all the cards I need for type-2 though.

2 Questions Terry,

1. Are you going to add Patriarchs and Angel Wars to the Booster Draft? Or just use the FooF Tin and what comes in it.

2. Are there going to be FooF Tins for sale at the tournament? If there are, I'm sure I will buy 2 or 3 and other people would too.

Ben,

Good questions.  I am thinking about adding Angel Wars and Patriarchs but the cost may be prohibitive.  It will cost me $300 for the tins (20 tins-enough for the booster draft and then some left for sale, I'm thinking) and another $50 or so for the extra packs (Angel W and Pat.).  I would have to charge $20 for Booster Draft to do that.  If you guys are alright with that, I'll place the order.  Let me know what you all are thinking.

You could order 2 complete sets of tins from Covenant Games for $270.  That would save a little.

Terry,

Nah, $20 is a little too much for booster. I'm not even playing Booster Draft this year, I was just curious.

Congrats Ben, Chad. I hope to see all of you on the 22nd...but who knows what mysterious wanderings lie beyond the foggy path of schoolwork?

:P Don't ask...the point was I don't know my schedule this fall yet, but I hope to see you guys on the 22nd. :D

Hey Terry,

I had a quick question I need to run by you. I might be getting a good amount of Warriors and Womens packs, and thought about holding a side event during the lunch hour. It would be something like this...


X-TREME BOOSTER
Come and enjoy all the fun of Booster Draft, but with a slight twist!
Each player will get the following:
Unlimited Booster Pack
Prophets Booster Pack
Womens Booster Pack
Warriors Booster Pack
Patriarchs Booster Pack
Apostles Booster Pack
Kings Booster Pack
Angel Wars Booster Pack
Priest Booster Pack
(Possibly 10 FoOF cards also)

You're probably thinking "WOW! Warriors Packs! How much is this gonna cost me?"
It will only cost you $25! (Unless I add 10 FoOF cards, then $30)

This event will be held in the lunch hour of the September 22nd Tournament, and possible a little extra time to get 2 or 3 games in.

I wish I could come; but I have complicated plans the night before. If there's anyone from Gateway that wouldn't mind me spending the night and are going to the Live Worship Recording, tell me! :D

Hey, Ben.  If you can swing that, we'll do it.  It will be fun to play that format.

Yes!  We are still alive and well in Texas.  We will meet Saturday, Sept. 22nd, at 9 am at the church.  We will do the multi player games in the mornging and the 2 player games after the lunch break.

Booster Draft will be $12 to enter.  Closed deck $10 with a $5 buyback for the complete G or H set returned in playable condition.  Unwanted drafted cards, lost souls and other doubles you have no use for will be appreciated and redistributed to new players.

Bring a friend who has never attended a Dallas tournament and receive a free pack for each registered new player you brang.

Looking forward to Saturday.  See you then.

Looking forward to it!

I have some bad news though, Jordan Drott is moving to Colorado in November so he will only be attending the next couple tournaments.  :'(

Is this a change, or a typo?  It was the other way around in the original post.

Does this include Patriarchs packs, or just the FoOF tins?

I have the same question as Marcus, but it could also be that Angel Wars could be added in.

I switched the events to accomodate a player who would like to play Booster but cannot stay for the afternoon session.  I will consider adding both Patriarchs and Angel Wars.  Probably at least one of the 2.

See you guys on Saturday.

Okay, then I'll be playing Booster, since I can't stay for the afternoon session.  Neeka's not coming, since it's the school year and she has band.
