I have a few boxes of champions and am willing to do a booster draft tomorrow night if enough people are interested? We can play friendly or maybe a single elim booster draft tournament depending on how many people are interested.

Now the crunch..

You can play for free but I have to have the cards back at the end and I'd expect you to treat them with respect, afterall I want to use them!

OR

You can pay for the draft.

Now I have worked out that I can do the draft for a sum of ?5 (YES THAT IS CORRECT) so if your interested please email me \[EMAIL=shane@eastbourne-elemental.com\]shane@eastbourne-elemental.com\[/EMAIL\] as soon as possible so I can get figures. I may well impose a 40 minute round if we have a lot of people but it should be fun so go on give it a go.

If we have enough people playing please be aware that it will not be like a club event with rares in the middle afterwards. Rare grabing will be the order of the day (Crainal Extraction anyone?). BUT if only a few pay then I will request all rares and foils to go into the middle and the players who paid will get to chose which ones according to placement, people who didn't pay can look on and go "OOO" "Aaaa" ;)

So come on.. lets give it a go Wink

Hmm perhaps I should point out a few things before people get a bit confused.

1. These are my Boosters and I'm just doing a draft at the club.
2. It is not certain until tonight (numbers although as above we have 4 without question)
3. Of the ?5 price 4.50 will go to me and 50p to the club for the pleasure of running it there.
4. I very much doubt that this will be sanctioned.
5. It's just fun so who cares?
6. Yes Arena will be running and this will not be included in part of it.

Dum de dum..

I just thought.. What the hell???!?!?!?

Nice to see you back on the forum Lee.....sure you will not play? Laughing

Anyway....I'm sure it will be quite easy to get 8 people.
One thing.....we all need to be there quite early.

David

I'll be there about 7.15pm

Any earlier and well I might have problems moving around (too early for brain to function).

I completely understand why people are deciding to 'take a break' from magic.

I've done it a few times now and when you do pick the cards up again you get that same feeling of fun. Me I'm looking forward to the release of Unhinged as this will really bring back memorys of Dave standing on a chair in the middle of the pub singing.. ;)

A lot of people at the club had started to take the game far too seriously.

We really need someone like Wayne who brought a great deal of pleasure to the game. It's nice to see everyone just chilling though and having fun for the first time in ages.

Tournaments are great but some people don't want to spedn 6 hours every other week playing cards (sadly I'm not at home enough either Sad )..

I'd love to see an unhinged booster draft at the club sometime.. Wink

Unhinge sounds like a good laugh.
Some of the cards are really stupid !!!!
If we are all interested we can do a booster draft no problems.
Shall we give it a go?

I'll have a box the day it's released.

I'm going to the prerelease in London on saturday so if anyone wants to pool (I usually take the train), we can go up as a team or something...

I agree people take the game too seriously, but about the time I started coming, you guys began to have more fun Very Happy
