It was Game of Thrones worlds this weekend and we threw a SWLCG binder draft for our guest Drew.  The draft process itself is a big part of the fun and as people walked by Tom would yell “I’m playing a real game!” and then explain the process to people.  It was fun listening to people complain about decks being too weak, or then decks being too good.  Complain that we had included too many Pietts in the meta again…  There were 6 of us and Tom suggested we play a game against another person and then switch, so he could play against as many people as possible before going out for dinner/drinks.  We got through 3 games and then a few of us stuck around for a 4th game.  The decks were very interesting this time around and the games were quite good too.  It’s a big jump going from 4 people to 6 people.  Danny had to figure out how we would do the binder rotation, but came up with every other draft rotating the binders twice. It seemed to work out.

Plays of the Day

Tom attacks with Ahsoka and Lobot into Drew’s Xizor and Arden Lyn.  They both bid three cards, but Drew put in Prince’s Scheme.  Tom reveals that all 3 of his edge cards are fate cards, one of them being Friendship is Magic, wins the edge battle 6-5 and sends the DS packing.

 

I played Explosive Charge 3 times in one game against Tom, blowing up his Forest with one of them and Obi-Wans stupid reserve 8 cape with another. Tom found a way back with Life Creates it and then to rub salt in the wound played Force Barrier to shield all his crap and dance on my corpse.

 

I had a Core Han plus Ackbar play against Tyler.  It felt dirty.

 

Drew gets a random discard on Danny and rips his Rebel Han money instead of his worthless Beyond the Rim money.

 

Danny holds tight against me with the dial at 11 with pilot Lando and Nien Nunb his only defenders!

 

 

 

I know there was more but I didn’t have time to write it all down last night!

It was a blast playing with our guests, the format really seems to get better and better the more people you have participating in it.  We are happy to organize a binder draft for anyone who comes and visits us!
