Hoping I can make it to this one. I'm having a procedure earlier that week and if all goes according to plan I should be recovered by Saturday.

Tournament Results:
As predicted... For Jabba's Palace By the Numbers.

A. 16 Players - Stupid Snow Storm... Many people messaged me and didn't want to tread the Polar Vortex
B. 4 New* Players (Matt, Craig, Mike, and Scott)
C. 1 Returning Players (Sam)
D. 4 8th Graders

*New = People who have just started this season to play competitively in the MN Tournament scene.

Overall: We've had a total of 33 different players come to at least 1 of our 4 events so far, of which 9 are who I consider first time MN Tournament Players.

Tournament #4: For those of you who never played in this meta, it was one of the first times certain cards were so powerful that it drove the entire meta. With the introduction of Starting Interrupts, DS was in the driving seat. Expand the Empire on Tatooine: Jabba's Palace was the first time DS had a game mechanic to pull all their activation early game. Knowing this LS best choice for a counter was to play TRM. But so many people knew this that it actually encourages players to return to the Death Star as their Starting Location, and the cycle just goes around and around. Some people still stuck with their Dagobah Clouds. In Game 4 it came down to our only 2 Undefeated players Scott and Mitch. Scott was able to abuse a weak DS space package by chain looping Our Most Desperate Hour for heavy retrieval carrying him to victory. Well built/played man.

Yeah! I picked it b/c of the ability to shut down DS's drains on Tatooine (I was expecting Scum or mains, and played vs. Scum twice) with test 1 (gets rid of 'saber bonuses and Gailid's bonuses) with 2x Projections to throw on Tat:JP and JP:AC. Very NPE, just watch out for Cane Adiss or Presence of the Force (which was the reason I lost my first game as LS. Also, not last!

These are always awesome to read Mark. It's so cool that you're able to build and keep an enthusiastic player base up North. One day, in the next few years, when I have more $$$, I've got to find my way up for one of your bigger summer events (when there's no Polar Vortex nonsense going on).
