Yeah, Lost Oracle needs to go! I really love that they finally added Yithians to the game. I only wish that Interstellar Migration had not had a discard effect! Maybe before it's all over we'll see a Yithian or two having nothing to do with discarding an opponent's deck?

 

just let him win, we wan't to see more restricted haha

Looking forward to this weekend.

 

I need to settle on what to play, but at least I know I will be in the same boat as VonWibble and Mulletcheese in never playing it at a tournament before. Other than a couple of games showing it to friends (who were sadly unimpressed), and a handful of OCTGN games losing badly, this should be a real eye opener!

Everyone should be in the same boat. 

 

I know Woz and Platty are actually learning to play tomorrow so that'll be interesting. The few of us here who play don't do so anywhere near often enough. 

 

I think we're looking at a pretty good turnout so it should be an epic day regardless.

+++ IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT +++

 

As this will be the first major-ish UK event .... er... ever. In the interest of not having people travel from all over to be force to face the abomination of an NPE that is the Y-train. 

 

INTERSTELLAR MIGRATION IS BANNED FOR THE EVENT!

 

Given how few people have a huge card pool to draw from for CoC in the UK. Ed has decided, having seen how abusive this bastard lovechild of Hitler and Satan is, that fun is more important than epic lulz mill wins. 

 

There is still scope to play with the Yith mechanics, and a mill deck is still viable. HOwever the zero interaction, "I do stuff, you lose" version is gone.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Crowbar however, is still a valid option for the day... just saying

Is this like a thing you can legally do at an FFG endorsed tournament?

I know If I were to run a tournament I'd consider banning the Greyjoy house card...

I don't even know what Interstellar migration does - but if its a clear NPE I'm all in favour of not facing it!

I'll have a version of y-train with me. I'll show you what it does and you'll understand. I'm looking at mono ST for the event. However they're still missing something so I may go to the old Hastur standby

11.30am is our usual time and I think that should be fine for CoC.  As each player only plays one game per 50 minute round we should get a comfortable day of play.

My boss is a ****. That's all I am going to say on the matter.

 

I am debating a sick day though...might slip and sprain my ankle or something.
