Coming up in just over one week, it's Qualifyin' time here in DC! (Or
at least near DC.)
Don't miss it!
Champion: Washington DC
TIME: Saturday, June 10th, 2006, 12 noon to 9 pm. Prelim rounds
should be done by about 7 pm. I'll be there at 11 am to
start registering people; play will begin as close as
possible to 12 noon.
PLACE: Dream Wizards:
11772 Parklawn Drive
Rockville, MD 20852
probably has better directions from out of state)
FORMAT: VEKN sanctioned constructed Championship Qualifier
tourney, 3 rounds + final.
The multi-judge system will not be used; Joshua Duffin
will be head judge and organizer.
Current V:EKN tournament rules can be found at:
ENTRY FEE: $5.00 (will go towards prizes)
PRIZES: Eternal fame (*), invitations to the 2005 North
American and all other Continental Championships... and,
of course, booster packs. Plus special Qualifier T-
shirts, lots of promo cards, and an always-coveted Nergal
(*) Fame may not be eternal. Fame is limited to the
population of V:TES players. May cause pool loss.
QUESTIONS: Joshua Duffin, jtduffin@...
Players who finish in the top 25% of not-previously-qualified
participants will earn the right to compete in any or all Continental
Championships that their little hearts desire (airfare not included).
The most convenient one might be the North American championship, to be
held (I believe) on October 7th and 8th, 2006, in Atlanta, Georgia, but
don't let a little thing like distance stop you from going to all the
other ones too. (See
Continental Championship details.)
If you're coming from out of town and would like to find crash space
with local players, let me know, and we may be able to hook you up.
There are also plenty of hotels around the area, if you prefer the
luxury of your own bed - there is a Ramada, for example, a mile or two
up Rockville Pike:
Or try travel.yahoo.com in "Rockville MD" (or any other method of your
choosing), if you'd like to investigate other options.
There will also be a second exciting tournament to follow on Sunday -
that one will be a sanctioned draft event, featuring the new Nights of
Reckoning set. Stick around, it'll be fun! It will use perhaps half
Nights of Reckoning boosters and half boosters from other sets. They
will be booster drafted per the normal booster-draft rules (open a pack,
pick a card, pass it on, pick again, et cetera).
