Diary of a Madman > HoD Gates of Winterfell - 59 characters in a deck.

Posted Boocho316 on 01 June 2014 - 11:56 PM

Your first thoughts on this deck are probably quite similar to my own - it'll never work. I'm happy to report that I managed to get into the top cut at the UK nationals after 6 rounds of swiss running a deck that comprised of 59 characters and 1 location - Gates of Winterfell. Crazy as it sounds, I actually had some real success with it and was taken out...

Tourney Reports > UK Stockton Store Championship 2014

Posted JCWamma on 26 February 2014 - 11:02 PM

The weekend of 14th-16th February saw the Stockton-on-Tees Store Championship, and Becky and I decided to make the long journey up to the North-East of England to meet some old friends from Stahleck and see if we could get ourselves some fun swag to bring back dan saff.

Pre-Tourney
The drive was long, but listening to the latest PUSA album helped...

Tourney Reports > Tourney Report: Stahleck 2013

Posted JCWamma on 26 November 2013 - 01:18 PM

Warning: long entry incoming. I will try to mark out which sections of this entry are specifically about Thrones, but this is about the event as a whole, so beware, lots of rambling up ahead.

For those unaware, Stahleck is the biggest Thrones tourney in the world, and some would argue the best - quantity-wise definitely, quality-wise maybe, the...

Every Hurt is a Lesson > Lesson 1: Introductions

Greetings, and welcome to the first, of many, issues of “Every Hurt is a Lesson.” Before we delve deep and begin truly seeing, I want to briefly explain my experiment. This series will be written from my humble beginnings as a Game of Thrones LCG player. I started playing last week by purchasing a...

Tourney Reports > UK Norwich Store Championship 2014

Posted JCWamma on 02 April 2014 - 06:27 PM

Back again with another TR, this time for the Norwich Store Championship held in Athena Games. Since the last tournament in Rayleigh, I'd played a grand total of two games, so I was very unoptimistic before attending. It turned out reasonably...

I’ve played Thrones for just over 3 years now, starting in the tail-end of the Defenders of the North Cycle (I still remember the hullaballoo that surrounded the release of Return of the Others). This was to be my 3rd Stahleck trip, and I was hoping to do much better than I managed to do last year, where I bombed out in the melee, and was at...

SundanCe's Blog > 3rd Place - Battle of Blackwater Bay 2014, a first try at reporting

Posted Buzz on 29 July 2014 - 04:07 AM

Unlike my fellow meta-mate JakobH I didn’t expect to go this far and thus took no notes. As a result I don’t have much info on the matches but will focus on the deck and how it plays. Note that my collaborator is also named Jakob and will refer to them as JakobH and W. Not only is this my first tourney report, I'm also writing this 4am after a week in Lon...

This weekend I piled into the car with 3 other Bostonians and traveled down to NYC for my first regional of the year. Waking up at 4am and then playing 6 games of AGoT is a great way to test your mental toughness.

Saturday
4:15am: My alarm goes off. I briefly consider hitting snooze but decide to get up anyway. At least it's summer in North America and...

It was all Jonathan B’s fault. He introduced me to the Dirty Girl online one night. I don’t really remember much more than that its all kind of a blur it was so long ago; I had had a few drinks. I’ll admit it, what first attracted me to her was that she was dirty: full of complex...

The Deck - Janky Doodle Dandy

The deck started with me trying to build a Bear Island deck for a SC. But I kept adding “fun” stuff, and the deck ended up being terrible so I scraped the idea. But the morning of the tournament I tried to make these fun things work.
So I started with a plotdeck that consisted a Fury plot and The Red Wedding, I add...

Tournament report for the Stoke Regional 27/04/14

This was the first of five UK regionals to be held this year and likely to be the best attended of all due to being fairly central, and well, because it’s Stoke, and they always attract players from all across the country. It was also one of the first major tournaments in the world post FAQ 5.0 and...

Rants & Ravings > [AGoT] On Radically Changing the Restricted List

Posted Keggy on 15 January 2014 - 07:58 PM

There are 40 cards on the restricted list right now. We just had 5 come off, but I feel like there will be more going on than off for the foreseeable future. Last February it was announced that the restricted list would not only be used to break up problematic combos and keep too many power cards from appearing in the same deck, but also that the...

RyanSD's Blog > Worlds Overall Champion - Greyjoy Holy Deck and Report (combined record 10-3)

Posted RyanSD on 16 November 2013 - 09:49 PM

Hi guys. Last year at Worlds I took detailed notes and was able to create a very technical TR because of it. Sadly, I was too lazy/sick this year to take notes so this one will be much broader and full of memory lapses. My bad.

I played the same deck, GJ Holy, in both Melee and Joust. Up until about 1am before the joust, it was just my melee deck. I had...
