MA League Event #1 (December 2018)

Post by Hutch »

What: 4 Game, Swiss Constructed Deck tournament. Differential scoring (SoS scoring if we have >10 players).
When: Wednesday, December 19th, start time 6:30 pm.
Where: Gaming Etc., 531 Main St H, Acton, MA 01720
Entry fee: $5 [goes towards store credit for the winner(s)]

I have the PC foils on hand from the Local Tournament Month event for anyone who attended that. I can/will bring extra decks with me if anyone has a friend who would like to play and doesn't have cards. If you need to borrow cards/decks, post here in this forum and we'll see what we can source. Also, please post if you plan on attending so we know who all we are waiting on that day.

Not yet. I'll text the guy from the demo and see if he'd like to come. I also met another potential new player at this store so I'll invite him too.

Sorry, I missed this thread. I don't think I'm going to be able to make 12/19, but keep me in the loop. Thanks

Hey, I'm new here! Just moved to the Hadley, MA area and have been getting back into playing SWCCG. Have played a bit online (GEMP) but would love to play in person. Can someone explain what a Swiss Constructed Tournament consists of? Are players using a lot of virtual cards or would I be able to get by with a Classic (non-virtual) deck?

It's the full universe of cards including virtuals... some decks have a few, other have a lot. But you won't be alone. As we're all in varying stages of returning to the game. Honestly, this is a low-key, laid back group with a lot of patience. I suggestion you attend and play with the best that you have or borrow decks for the night. If you cna't get yourself comfortable with that... I would suggest attending, observing, and preparing for the next event.

But, I am not the tourny director so i defer to Grady for official response :)

Swiss is the format. You play a fixed number of rounds and the winner is the person who wins the most matches. Constructed means that you bring a deck that you've constructed ahead of time (as opposed to Limited, where you open packs).

In general, the decks are about 50% virtual cards (it varies based on archetype - several of them are almost all virtual). Several of the non-virtual decks are competitive-ish (DS Senate and TTO being the best contenders). You may be able to borrow a deck from someone.

Last time I think Grady brought 7 decks for each side. Show up and you'll have something to play. Will you be efficient with it... no. But I bet you'll still have fun.

Thanks for the info. It's going to be a close call on tonight, might not be able to make it. Is this a monthly meetup?

Hey this is Grady. Sorry I missed this chat until now. I’m trying to schedule monthly events. So if you can’t make this one, keep an eye on this forum for the next!
