Magic: the Gathering in the UK
I want to try and numb the pain of the sadness around the Organised Play changes by hosting an 8-man Cube event on Saturday 26th November.
I've found a venue near Tower Bridge that charges £15 an hour for the use of a hall, tables and chairs - make no mistake, it's a pretty dismal venue but it will do the job.
All players will split the cost of the venue between them (so I'd say around £10 each), and anyone else who wants to come along to spectate will be asked to donate £2 toward venue fees. There will be no prizes for this event (unless all agree to pay a bit more and we buy a few boosters or something for top 3), and of course anyone is welcome to come and trade / hangout / spectate!
We'll film the finals also, to show the world that Cube is EPIC!!!
I see this as the start of what could possibly become the 'Cube Masters Series' - if there's enough interest, we'll do it again, bigger and better, and who knows what it might become!
Anyway, I need 7 players who can confirm attendance on Saturday November 26th and I'll make it happen.
i would definitely do this, but wouldn't it make more sense to just do it in a free venue? ie a quiet pub with a large table? i dunno.
There are a few problems with pubs -
1] LIQUID. Expensive cube cards HATE liquid (ie beer, puke etc).
2] DIRT. Expensive cube sleeves HATE dirt.
3] DRUNKEN ACCIDENTS. The cube hates them.
Of course if anyone knows a good 'free' venue that's safe, clean and big enough for an 8-man event + spectators, shout now!
I would be intersted in doing this.
