We Have a Dream - Athens, Greece Last Winter Joust (Teams)

There is a small country at eastern Europe that faces many problems, economic and many more. But it's citizens never forgot where the word "games" started to have a meaning.

Gio Karab reporting from Greece for the AGoT LCG madness that takes place here since summer.

"We have a Dream" is the headline for this article because everybody here in Greece feels like this. We feel that the coming of AGoT in our card game community was truly what we needed for old players to start playing again and we want to contribute as much as we can to take the organised play of AGoT to the next level.

We will go deeper to the "We have a Dream" concept in later articles. For now let me take you for a journey to Athens, where our community had a special rated event before Christmas, to celebrate the closure of our point system for the year 2011. To be honest there was another Joust event after this one but the celebration was for the Team Event. Let's start...

16 People... 8 Teams... 1 Prize... AGoT LCG Joust Doubles 1st Place!

The Rules
-Teams of 2 competing in Joust with a common power race to 30.
-Team A faces Team B.
-The highest ranking player in our ladder chooses his opponent first. If you don't have a point system running you can do it random who faces who.
-The pairs play Joust 1v1. There is no interaction between the pairs. The pairs just share rounds. If one pair has finished its round they w8 the other pair to finish too.
-The only thing that the pairs share except rounds is power. When the combined power of one pair is 30 game ends. Example: I have 2 power only but my teamate has managed to gain 28 power from his opponent. We win :D

Left-"Team We Lose" (Petrovic-Paraskevopoulos) / Right-"Team Not" (Mamoutzis-Xenakis)

The event was held together with the opening night of a chain of stores that supports AGoT here in Greece, Fantasy Shops, so some players got the chance to win prizes outside of play!

Argiropoulos Dimitris from "Team I Whistle and you are over" (We can all see John Xenakis from "Team Not" behind thinking to steal the core set !)

At the final we had 2 teams made of players that never had the chance until now to play for first place and not our usual Big Names!
