    The 1hr Lunch break and 1/2hr afternoon break are to enable entrants and watching parents to not only eat but have a chance to look round the MiniCon too.

    Remember these are unlikely to survive fully intact when they meet reality but will give you an idea of the structure for the day.

    There are trade stands and other games to watch and try not just MtG!

    Watch out for the Ladies challenge too, a surprise prize for the highest placed female!

    Glad you can finally make it to a big tournament, djcati. If Jim (new guy at the Borders League) makes it, that will be three members of the Glasgow League ready to show the Londoners who's boss!

    "28th September... My first tourney. *shock horror* What on earth am I thinking!? First tourney and already in the 15+. o_o I'm gonna get wasted! XD"

    I second that. Still, I'm going to put up the best fight I can to put Leicester on the map. *crosses fingers for a Birmingham event in the future*

    Is the tournament opened at Italian Players?
    How could I arrive from Stansted airport?

    The tournament is open to all and if you are coming from Standstead we know a man from Norwich that just might be able to pick you up!

    Will check but Martin Banham maybe able to collect you he is going to slide right by Stanstead on his way from Norfolk.

    On your home turf it will be great to see Team London in action again.. just don't mention legally stalling to a judge ;)

    And someone teach Freddy how goldberry works :lol:

    I will be TO and reporter dood again so can't play but I expect Geoff, Shane, Matt and Kraig will defend the honour of the Gamers Guild :clap:

    Looks like we got a strong Celtic contingent coming down too so maybe a Celt will take how the spoils from SE4?

    Scottish players > everyone else

    Hopefully I'll be able to make it to the Glasgow league sometime in September.. Hey, will it be running on the 27th? Cause I might be able to scrounge a Friday night leave... Hm..
    How many members are there, now? :p

    Sounds expensive, but it would be really fun to finally attend a big tourney again. I haven't played outside Norway since Worlds one year ago. :(

    It's looking like I'll make it, and I should have my brother and one of my friends (who is learning the TCG) with me as well. If you see a group of three enter, of which only one looks normal (my bro), thats us.

    Team N00b!

    Ha, no fear... You and your friend won't be the only weird-looking ones. :p I have taken the Japan badge OFF my hat now, but still, only normalizes a little.

    *doesn't think "normalize" is a word*

    I'm bringing my unlimited deck as well, plus my Star Wars and Harry Potter cards (and Ruby :D), since I can guarantee you I won't be in the tourney for long. XD;;
    Anyone else play HP or SW, or willing to beat - uh, play - an unlimited match with me at some point? ^^

    Wierd is the new normal at these events anyhow just check out some of the pics of past events:

    http://www.gamers-guild.co.uk/content/pokepics.htm

    Well be glad to see you all there and Android 17a the cards should reach you this morning I hope!

    Oh and djcati... the tourney is swiss so you don't get knocked out of the tourney you'll be playing till the end :)

    But there are some rest slots between games and if your match ends early bringing your GBA and Ruby or Sapphire is a good idea.

    Plus don't forget we got the GBA reader hooked up to the ganme cube again for more fun and frolics and wall sized Ruby and Sapphire through our projectors.

    It's gonna be fun and we'll see you all there!
