    Hi ho dere, Meganium45 here, bringing you a fast acting news flash....

    Guess who Nintendo made their newest premiere TO??? You guessed it


    There will be a SANDSTORM Pre-release tourney (and side tourneys) on Saturday (yes, Saturday, Random) September 13th at signup 2:00-2:30 p.m. at Dragon King Game and Hobby in St. Charles.

    Go to for directions, not sure if they have the tourney listed yet, but it will be there!!!

    Cost will be no more than $20.00 (may make it cheaper, stay tuned for details!!)

    Entry gets you 6 packs of Sandstorm to make your limited deck with!!!

    Prizes are great, box to the winner of each age group (10 and under, 11-14 and 15 and over) half a box to 2nd place of each group, and 9 packs to 3-4th of each group and 5th-8th each get 4 packs! A ton of prizes!!!

    The signup for the tourney will start at 2:00, with signup closing at 2:30, and packs given out, first match at 3:00!!!

    4 rounds swiss, age - modified, and no top 8!!!

    After the main tourney, there will be a break for dinner, and then we will do a Sandstorm Draft tourney, with each player opening packs, taking one card, and passing the rest, 6 packs in that, prices TBA!!! (You can even use the packs you win!!!)

    Sleeves will be available on site for purchase - protect those new HOT cards!!!

    Come for an entire day of drafting fun at Dragon King!!!!

    If there are any left, Sandstorm packs will be for sale ONLY on the day of the event!!!!

    I'm interested in coming, but I don't know if I'll be able to attend (I don't have a car.). I'll look around and see if I can get a reasonably priced taxi or something.

    I'm looking forward to this one and I really hope I can come. Of course, if I can, there's no way I'm ever going to get out of bringing Tina, but that's okay ^_~.

    *Gasp* I MUST make me a Pink and Fluffy Penguins shirt to wear there!

    OK check it out. There will be prizes for all participants, not just the top 8 in each age group.

    I am expanding the prize pool so no one will experience what I experienced in Chicago for R/S (Now meganium, if you were a decent player....)

    Everyone will leave with more than their six packs they opened, it will be at least one pack, but it will be extra. Ironically, the more people come, the more I will give away (awwww, isn't that sweet!)

    Come one, come all, be the ball, all the cliches!!! You know you want to play, so COME AND PLAY!!!!

    Also, we will be holding a booster draft afterwards....or 2, or until we all want to go home.....noone ever wants to go home.....anyone remember the draft 'til 4AM at Gencon??? We may not get that bad, but we will stay and play!!!

    Starting at 3pm?

    I'm getting lots of pressure to come over, but that means that we'd be coming only for the prerelease, and getting back really late....must consult boss ... er, I mean wife.

    At first I thought there was no Greyhound stop here, but I just looked at their site now, and apparently there is. Anyone know where the closest Greyhound stop to Dragon King is?

    EDIT: Missouri Greyhound stop list, if it'll help.

    I hope to see you all there. Those who posted you are coming, expect an e-mail tonight with fun bonus items and more details!!!!

    I guess I can take the Greyhound from Rolla to St. Louis, and from there take a Taxi to St. Peters.

    Is there a payphone in the vicinity of Dragon King? I would need to call a cab so I can get to the Greyhound stop again whenever the tourney finishes.

    Couldn't you use someones cell phone? Cause people have cell phones here.

    Dude, you can use the phone at the store, and someone will prob give you a ride back if you need it....

    colin, kind of harsh....that's why your one of ours!

    OK. I am having major trouble linking to my coupons, so here is the deal.

    We will have coupons for $2.00 off the admission at the tourney. Fill out your name and address on the back of the coupon to be placed on our mailing list for all future major tourneys. And yes, there will be more!!!

    Bonus if you bring a friend, and they use a coupon, you will be entered into a special door prize drawing. The more people, the bigger the prizes!!!

    e-mail me for more details!!! Shame I cannot get the coupons on, they looked cool. Come and you will see them!!!!

    Hope to see you all there, for those bad at math, it's now $18, not $20!!!!

    Bump - Just added more door prizes for all those coming - I do not think you will be disappointed (OK it's not cash, but, heh)

    See you ALL there!

    It looks like we will be coming.

    We're going to be one short this time. One of our usual neighborhood rugrats won't be able to make it, but there should be 5 players with us.

    Just hope we don't forget our DCI cards like we did last time. Oh, wait a minute....

    KY will be in the house!!!
