So who wants to loan me a DS Combat 7’s deck with 2x Double Back (v)’s.

I’ll be there if only for introductions.

Looking forward to this tomorrow. It's looking like this is going to be a mini-LT Weekend for us. I moved our location to a new store and they did a little social media for us, and it generated some interest so it looks like I'll be meeting some new people tomorrow. I'll post updates tomorrow.

Thanks everyone!

Sorry it took me so long. This job I tell ya ;)
(Just for the record, I love my job.)

1. Bryan 6 (+65)
2. Charlie 6 (+64)
3. Jim 6 (+14)
4. Max 6 (-20)

5. Dennis 4 (+20)
6. Brando 4 (-5)
7. Jan 4 (-2)
8. AJ 4 (-19)

9. Will 2 (+3)
10. Fernando 2 (-42)

11. Nick 0 (-43)

Bryan, Charlie and Jim all lost one game, I think to each other? I think Max lost his first game by a grip, got the Bye, and then won his last 2 games by a very small margin.

Charlie won the raffle and took the Accelerate. Bryan gets stuck with the Wokling.

Stew helped me teach a couple of new players who showed up. Thanks!

The most played cards with "Back" in title were...
1. Watch Your Back (Combo)
2. Double Back
3. Endor: Back Door

The most original ones I gave out tickets for were...
1. I've Decided to Go Back
2. Artoo, Come Back At Once

Thanks to everyone who came hope it was fun! I'm posting our next event soon! October 27th!!!

Thanks for the support John. I'm really sorry your health took a slight dip. I would have praised your original LS deck idea and well suited for the Theme. Hope to see you soon, and always wishing you the best.

Ming-Man! Couple of options.

1) I was originally thinking Oct. 13th. Does that work better? Keep in mind I'd have to speak with Level Up Games first since I've already confirmed with them Oct. 27th. Secondly, I already have one person who told me at the "Back" to School Event that the 13th was no good, but 27th did work. BUT if more people post here the same message you did, I will take that into consideration and try to make the change. Lastly, and this one is not a big deal at all, but I was hoping to go for a Halloween Theme for this one.

2) My goal is to run one event each month, I was currently planning on running the next event on Nov. 3rd. Would that be ok then?

Certainly don't change the date simply on my account- if you have a commitment to the store and other players you should keep it. I won't have any free Saturdays until November anyway, so it's awesome that you're planning an event that month too. I will try and make that one for sure.

I'll try to get a quick survey out on Facebook tonight Ming-Man, and commit to something this weekend. Nothing is official yet, so I appreciate your feedback and will try to accommodate if possible.
