2-Player Booster Draft

(1/9) > >>

uthminister [BR]:
I have personally been hoping for Booster Draft to become a 2-player event for quite some time. I had implemented it a handful of times at local playgroup events and found it to be much more appealing than the multiplayer variety for a variety of reasons. At the Texas State we decided to jump in with both feet and go for it. And now, we are wanting to implement it at our Regional and National tournaments as well. That is where the announcement came in about Nationals being 2-player Booster Draft.

So what are your thoughts about Booster Draft becoming a 2-player event versus it staying a multiplayer event?

The Elders have conferred, and Rob has spoken:

Effective immediately, Two-Player booster is a host option for Booster draft. Drafting will still be done in a multiplayer setting and then pairings will be made. This will be the method of booster play at Nationals this year.

The host guide will be updated accordingly.

MP booster games are still a sanctioned option if your playgroup prefers that style.

All RNRS points remain the same and will count towards "Booster draft" regardless if 2P or MP option is used

To be clear as to what we're talking about, in 2-player booster draft you still draft at a 4 player table, then break up into pairs and play 2-player games with the deck you drafted.

If that's the format we're talking about it's much more desirable than MP booster draft and changes draft strategies quite a bit (for the better)!

NathanW:
So is this considered an official category or modification to booster draft? The host guide only gives an option for multi-player booster draft.

Watchman:
I'm absolutely for a two-player booster draft vs. multi.  In fact, I think tournament hosts should be given the option to do 2 player or multi based upon the players' choice.  The problem with this idea is the RNRS.  There must be consistency with the ranking system with one type or the other.   So if there we are given the option of one over the other I would totally do 2 player.

Travis - At your tournaments with you doing 2 player booster, were those official games or just side-bar games?

At this point it's simply a discussion. The conversation about what is "official" has been started as well and all official documents will be updated if a change is implemented.
