Magic: the Gathering in the UK
While I was moving house I discovered that I have a full 8-man's worth IPA draft of packs lying around. For those of you young whippersnappers that didn't play much IPA, it was a good format that is definitely worth a bit of a draft. The reason that I suggest Rochester is twofold. One, it is a really good format that I don't get to do very often. Two, some of these packs (quite a few of them) are in foreign languages, which I can imagine being a bit of a barrier for those that aren't very good on their card knowledge. If we Rochester, then I can have the ol' iPad fired up with the visual spoiler of each set, and as each pack is laid out, anyone that needs to can check the card text on any card.
If you are looking to get some pimpin' foreign language Meddling Mages, Pernicious Deeds or Goblin Ringleaders, this is probably your best chance. Haven't quite worked out the money side of it yet - probably will cost a similar amount to a normal draft - I don't want to cut my own throat.
Let me know if you're interested. I'm probably looking to do this one Saturday afternoon in some pub or other. First dibs will go to awesome people - ideally ones that know what at least some of the cards do.
Would like to be In, although looks like im number 9 :/.I know more cards than most people though *sells with eyes, and ignores the existance of reeve, lovett, o'keefe and paul...*
