The episode 1 tournament is probably going to be atleast $115 for entry as the cards are so expensive. We play mostly for fun, and then buy a couple packs of reflections II or III for whoever takes first place, and usually give out some other packs to everyone else. Hoobs and I have been trying to figure out a way to do all episode I cards and keep the cost down, we've found that about 300 cards per person usually gives you a decent amount of cards to build a deck out of.

So we were thinking maybe 2 boxes of tatooine, 1 box of theed, 1 box of coruscant. that would be about 220 cards a person, which is a little short, but do-able. that would go for about $126 per person including the cost of the prizes. and obviously you get to keep all the cards and have some fun.

Theed and coruscant are soo expensive now. I wish the PC could sell what they have, I talked to warren, the president of decipher, and he said he gave them most of what they had left for stock, but with the condition they can't sell them. kinda bums me. do you guys have any friends who play too?

We were supposed to do an empire strikes back theme draft this past weekend, hoobs and I bought all the cards. but our friends didn't end up showing up. It was gonna have: 1 Empire strikes back 2 player deck, 10 packs CC, 10 packs dagobah, 1 enhanced CC and 6 packs of hoth per player. we still have the cards and may look to reschedule depending on what our buddies say. But if you guys want to come to the reschedule date, I could order some more product to include 8-10 instead of 6. I found some hoth single packs online...

I am up for drafts but I would probably only be interested in tourneys with entry fees under or around $25. Seems like you guys shell out a lot of money... An episode 1 tourney is enticing, but the price tag is too high for me I think.
I have two (or maybe three) cousins who play. One is in Indiana for college but the others are pretty local.
Let me know if you could use more players at a more affordable tournament. I would love to play (once I find the rest of my cards!) and also parlay info regarding future events.

Empire strikes back sounds alright.

Yeah, the Episode 1 draft is the most expensive one we'll ever do. typically we shoot for about $50. the amount of cards required to draft a fairly competative deck, from what we've found is about 300. The empire strikes back tournament will be about $60 per person... we could always do a really cheap draft tourney with premiere and jabba's palace, for like $20 per person. most of what you get and play with will be crap though.

Hi there, MA players-

I am also interested in getting back into playing some tournaments/games. I used to run tournaments in Dartmouth, MA years ago but am still around. Is there any way you could start up an e-mail list or something to get the word our on the tournies? I'm definitely up for any kind but especially enjoy draft or sealed deck tournaments.

I live in the metropolis of Rehoboth, MA (Southeastern, MA) but could make it out to central or western MA with some planning.

What you really mean is "theres a tourney in houston tx this weekend dude." You would be more correct, since the other one is lame.

Rats-too bad I waited until today to check back...

Hope the tourney was fun and that there will be more.

Any chance of being added to an e-mail list to notify me of tournaments?

Thanks,

Randy

So.. looks like there was once a pretty good player base in MA. Are any/all of you still active?

We still get together once a month (or every other month) at That's Entertainment in Worcester (the halfway point between my Springfield group and the players from Boston). We have tentative plans for a Premiere through Coruscant tournament in July but it might be tough coordinating everyone's schedule due to vacations,weddings, etc. You can probably do a search using the keyword "Worcester" to find posts about our past (and future) tournaments. Hopefully, we'll see you the next time!

Hey, I just moved back to MA for good after spending the last 4 years in Washington DC. I know your group in Worcester usually plays on Saturdays, and unfortunately I can't make any Saturday events but if you guys ever decide to hold one on a Sunday I'll do my best to come.

That's Entertainment has Magic tournaments on Sundays and those take priority over other tournaments so we can't have Star Wars tournaments there on Sundays (plus I work on Sundays now).

In the Boston area, looking to play a game or two. Haven't played since the MA tourney at Pandemonium in 2012. Before that, I hadn't played since the game was still in print. Have done a little research for making good beginner decks since then.
