hey there people!
i am finally getting my ducks in a row... so i can hunt them down and rip their.... ahem
- sorry, wolf moment
to re-phrase... I am getting sorted out to update on Westgamer on a more regular basis and I want to say "G'Day" to all the new people on this forum.
MTG 4 U @ TGA!!!
At the moment Wednesday night from 6:00pm - 10:30pm is set up for "MIDWEEK MAGIC"... we are drafting at the moment, getting our newer players a nice store of cards, deckbuilding advice and practice, and just general MTG knowledge. Once everyone seems happy and have a few games under their belt we will start throwing the "Playoff" word around a little more. I'd like to see both happening regularly, and maybe even a few playoffs being organised for a Sunday at TGA.
I've updated (and will continue to update) the two original posts to reflect the current games available status. Rather than post up names and ask people to confirm they are going I'm leaving this as an open posting. Keep an eye on the first two posts and you'll know what's going on! What it does mean for players is the you need to get to TGA between 18:00 and 18:30 ( 6 and 630 pm) to make sure you get a seat and your choice of set and format! If you come into a Draft event I would strongly recommend to any current MTG players that, if possible, you have a 60+ card, Modern Deck (black border only) , and then you'll be set in case you miss out on a spot - 'Midweek Magic' is growing quickly!
The DRAFT post will show our current draft capability. Each 'BOX' is enough cards from the listed set for 8 people to draft and 6 boosters for prizes. I'll also keep putting up a name in the Winners Circle (just for the kudos!
The PLAYOFF post shows the number of boosters i have available for playoff prizes, the sets those boosters are from, and the distribution of those prizes base on number of players. I will update the Prize Distribution post after some thought and discussion, so keep an eye on it!
Both DRAFT and PLAYOFF style can be played, by anyone, at TGA and on either a Wednesday evening or a Sunday. I also have some sheets explaining different formats that i wouldn't mind trying, and I am open to suggestions for other formats!
I'm going to point out that we are 'Casual' with MTG at TGA... this is fun, social and enjoyable. I am welcoming new players, state level superpowers who just want to relax, and old warhorses like myself who MTG'd back in the day and then kinda lost it for a while. If you have never even seen Magic the Gathering, but want to know what the hype is over, come on in and check it out... we can show you how it works, run you through a couple of games and then get you into a Draft or Playoff and see how you like it.
So come into TGA on a Wednesday arvo or Sunday and check this out. If you want to post / pm suggestions please feel free! If you want to talk to me in person (not usually a sensible option, i don't improve with proximity!
) come to TGA and ask for Wereman or Tarron... or just ask them to point out the "guy who can't roll dice to save his life" (Tarron effect is patent pending!)
Get into the MAGIC!
