    Is anyone in the Chicago Area interested in an Aquapolis/Sandstorm draft in 2 weeks? If so, here's the info...

    Where: Windy City Comics and Cards
    When: Saturday, September 20, noon
    Cost: $12, this includes 3 packs of Aqua and 2 packs of Sandstorm, plus League and product prizes.
    Format: Wizards Booster Draft format. I'll explain later on.
    Rounds: Age Modified Swiss.

    I need to have at least 6 people to show up for this, or it will just be a regular League.

    Under the Wizards Booster Draft format, each player will receive 5 packs of cards, in this case, 3 Aquapolis and 2 Sandstorm. EAch player will open a pack of Aquapolis, take one card from that pack, and pass the remaining cards to the right. Continue to take a card and pass to the right until all cards are expelled. Then, each player will open a pack of Sandstorm, take a card, and pass the rest to the left. Continue to take a card and pass to the left until all cards are expelled. Continue opening and passing packs around until there are no packs remaining. Each player will then construct a 40 card deck consisting of the cards placed in front of him or her. There will be a 20 minute time limit for constructing your deck. You will then be paired, and will play at least 6 30 minute rounds.

    Again, I need at least 6 people say that they can definately show up, or this will be another regular League.

    soslowpoke:
    Aren't you forgetting about the Prerelease? If I'm not mistaken, the prizes are all Sandstorm based. That's where the EX cards are gonna be comin from.

    kingkyle3:
    Windy City has already started its league. Pokedok is running it. It will cost $5 for the season (however long that is), and it will be every Saturday from noon to about 3.

    I wouldn't find it very wise to plan a draft based on what you 'assume' you'll win =x

    The prerelease is divided into age groups, right?

    If I don't get the boosters that I need, I'll post here and request that the mods lock this topic. I won't have it deleted because then the people might still think that there's a Draft. Actually, I might just change it to a straight Aqua draft, if I don't get enough Sandstorm boosters. Fair nuf?

    Well I suppose he could always "repack" the cards he gets from the sealed :p. I think someone here is confident.

    2-0 in sealed. I have a right to be.

    Well if you need 6 people to run this sucker and the prizes go..

    1st- 36
    2nd- 16
    3/4- 8
    5-8- 4

    Better hope the handful of other people that went 2-0 in R/S Sealed don't have the same ambitions =x

    I repeat my question: are there age groups?

    Also, I have ilc and his bro helpin out on this, so there should be enough for at least 6 guys, especially since his bro is in the nonexistant 11-14 age group, you remember that, don't you?

    Yes there are age groups and i think 11-14 pulled in a bit more than 15+ did last weekend.

    yeah, 11-14 pulled off 12 people, while 15+ got only 11. It's 10 and under that's non-existant...

    Yes, there should be less prizes for the 10- in smaller events like this. Even I agree that there are way to many prizes for this tournament. I would run it 10- and 11+ for something as small as this.

    Eh I suggested splitting the unused prizes for 10- among the 15+ and 11-14 that didnt T8..but it looks like we've got to send back product for what wasnt reported for. (i.e. If there was no 8th placer for 10- we'd have to send back 10 boosters or however many it was they won..)

    Yeah, its too bad we have to send that back.
