Hey guys,

This might be too much awesome for one weekend but I'm sure we've got enough Magic players in the community to pull it off.  I just want to gauge what the interest might be in participating in a friendly Magic tournament, probably booster draft of the latest block.

Please sign here if you're interested and if it looks like we can do it, I'll handle the product acquisition, location, logistics.

I've only played a couple times, so no tourney for me. But I'd like to sit down for a couple games and get schooled.

I can trade you some, but there will be loads of lag and eventually you will end up with only half of your cards.

Well that would pretty much cement the Bitcoin = Nerds label if word gets out that we had a Magic: the Gathering tournament going on at our conference.

Why not. I would be down to play, though all my cards are super old.

I would probably need a deck and to train up on what is new.

I was thinking just booster draft the Return to Ravnica block, which recently had its 3rd set, Dragon's Maze, released:  http://www.wizards.com/Magic/TCG/Products.aspx

No need to bring your own cards.  Vague understanding of the rules would be helpful.

I have a feeling we'll be pretty busy at the conference but I would still be down to play. I'd pre-pay in BTC if you pick up the necessary packs. Part of the reason I want to play is to celebrate MTG's special relationship with BTC.  Grin

What about doing a draft tournement from a particular set?   Those are fun and everybody is equal because the packs get passed around

Since LetsTalkBitcoin! is covering the event, I doubt I'd have time to play - but I do enjoy a good draft.
