Do you know roughly when it'll finish? Google is telling me to leave by 5:48pm.

Don't forget about the post-tourney visit to Korbas. It's a NeoReading Grid tradition to commiserate Losing The Bell Yet Again over mouthfuls of greasy kebab and lashings of Dandelion&Burrdock pop.

Sweet, someone else got Tennin! I finally won one game with it last night so I'm 1-5 in testing. :roll: :cry: :D

Jank tournaments are more than about just winning grasshopper, they are about exploring the unvisited corners of the card library.

... at least, that's what I'm telling myself.

I think the thing with your deck is that they're all perfectly functional and decent cards, you just don't usually seem them all together at once! And not at the expense of some very sensible cards that would have massively helped you in your game against me.

Sensible cards like, you know, breakers? Yeah.

Criminals have all the best breakers. I mean, who needs to break Ice on a remote anyway? Overrated.

Criminal breakers for remotes are fine! I mean, Aurora and Leviathan, what more could you want?

Fab tourney today, cheers!

24 people was a great turnout. No byes, hurrah! The Oxford Massive made a good showing with 6 of us competing for glory. Alas, The Bell fell into the hands of The NeoReadingGrid as their newest champion Chris won the tourney with his Exile (!) and NEXT Design decks. Well played Chris!

I went 6-4 with my Tennin and Quetzal decks. I was pleasantly surprised by this: in playtesting the Quetzal deck had been fine and was fun to play, but the Tennin deck had won exactly 1 game. I went full on fast advance -- 3 TOL, 1 Biotic, no remotes -- which worked well on the day... until I encountered a Shaper deck running Clot and Clone Chips and yeah, that was game over.

Rahul won a sweet World of Warcraft Cataclysm playmat: massive propz to him for bringing an ~80-card Tower of Power running out of... Kim. Tom won the coveted World of Warcraft Brewfest playmat, gratz!



Guy proved his Jankmeister credentials by coming second in the tourney proper with his wonderful jank decks, winning a playset of sweet Exploratory Romp cards signed by Seb! Gratz Guy!

I made just the one glaringly dumb misplay on the day that I was a bit bummed about: I ended a turn with 3 cards in hand when facing off against Phillip's Weyland. One SEA Source and a Scorch later Quetzal was dead. It was a bum note to end the game on, a proper schoolboy howler. I was having a lot of fun playing Quetzal -- Turntabling is the shiz! -- and I just plain forgot about my hand. Doh! What's worse is that the game was being recorded... it's not every entertaining when someone klutzes it. The reverse game when my Tennin faced off against Phillip's DLR Fisk was pretty good though: I managed to win by Fast Advancing a Future Perfect just before Phillip really went to town with DLR.

It was my first Random ID tourney: the format was fun! I would never play Tennin by choice -- I dislike glacier -- but it was interesting to give a whirl for a while. I look forward to the next one: good work Gridders!

Oh! A few of us breakfasted at The Quantum Cafe prior to the tourney. It was okay, warm and filling. Let's try somewhere else for the next one for variety.
