Last Night’s Splendor Event was Splendiferous!
A Dozen people played in the tournament with a handful more attending the demo but choosing not to compete. Jason Grantz and Steven Mount bested the field. Each earned a playmat and full set of custom clear game tokens. All participants received a set of limited edition nobles cards. There were a few remaining sets of Nobles. These will be given out with the next copies of Splendor we sell.
This event was the first in the AsmOPlay series from Asmodee games. Next up will be Seven Wonders in July, details TBA.
Erik Carl of Tsumanicon stopped by and we sketched out Wizard’s Asylum’s role in the convention. Our primary focus will be LCG’s. In addition to ongoing demos, we will run competitive events for Netrunner, Conquest and Doomtown.
It’s Friday and that means FNM. Our standard, standard event will fire at seven, and in case you were not aware, every player gets a free entry to our Win A Box Raffle. I am conflicted about which deck to play tonight. It’s extremely tempting to try and consolidate last weeks win by going with the infinite turns deck again, but I’m leaning toward Villianous Wealth. Probably a game-time decision.
Final preparations are underway for tomorrow’s Flying Monkey’s Warhammer Team Event. We will be playing the Adepticon 2015 Team Scenarios. Here’s a sneak peek at the participation prize for the event.
Yes those are Foil Flying Monkey Sleeves on a special set of Tactical Objective Cards.
In addition to these sweet cards, participants will have first access to our new miniatures flea market which will feature bits and bargains on used models.
One more thing for the 40K crowd….
There’s a new Ork Warlord causing quite a commotion in the outer regions. Urtybog Skabfang claims to be a refugee from Thrakka’s homeworld, Urk. This planet has been believed uninhabitable for generations due to the supernova of its host star. Nonetheless, wild rumors are flying about some obscure relics that could change the balance of power in the galaxy. Definite ramifications for the upcoming Narrative Event. Stay Tuned!!!
