Additional Tournament Details

This Regional Championship is the first big test for competitive players on the road to Nationalsand beyond. All players, judges, and tournament organizers involved are held to the highest standards of conduct.

Players are assumed to be familiar with the game’s rules, as well as the latest FAQ and tournament rules, and should expect all rules to be strictly enforced. Specifics to note for our event:

  • Players are not required to reveal a die to their opponent until the matching card is in play during a game.
  • Players are required to sleeve their deck in opaque card sleeves. All sleeves within a single deck must be identical in size, color, texture, and condition. Players may sleeve their characters and battlefield, but they must use different sleeves from their deck. Players should bring a few spare sleeves for their deck in case a card sleeve breaks or becomes unusable during a tournament.
  • We are using a 5+5 tardy rule: If you have no opponent at 5 minutes past the start of the round, call a judge. We’ll search for your opponent, and if they can’t be found by 10 minutes past the start of the round, your opponent forfeits and you win.
  • The judges will perform random deck checks throughout the tournament. If you suspect your opponent is using an illegal deck or that their deck might not match their deck list, call a judge.

 

Additional Information

Please note that no outside food or beverage is allowed at the Greenfield store. All drinks must be in a screw top container. Cousin’s Subs sandwiches, beverages, and snacks will be available for purchase on-site during the tournament.

If you want to practice before Regionals, our Bayshore store hosts a regular weekly casual Destiny event on Wednesday nights:

RPG Roulette: Numenera @ Mayfair
Feb 7 @ 6:00 pm

Welcome to the Ninth World, and to Numenera.

Join Game Master Anthony for a mini campaign on Thursdays through all of February!

New players are always welcome! We’ll be starting with brand new characters and covering the basics of the game before we begin.

About the Game
Numenera takes place on Earth, well sort of. One billion years have passed and nine eras have come and gone—great cities, alien races, machine dynasties—all have risen to power, made sweeping changes to the planet’s people, its structure and its atmosphere. And all have fallen, leaving the planet a shell for the next to fill in.

It would be error to refer to you as a true human, and yet human is how you think of yourself. A resourceful wanderer in a landscape beyond your comprehension, full of seemingly “magical” devices and technology left behind by past civilizations.

Select who you will be in this world: Are you Glaive, armed to the teeth, a master of weapons? A Nano, someone whose mind and control of themselves can even affect their surroundings? The Wright, a builder, designer, craftsman? An Arkus? Leader of people, architect of councils and towns. A Delve, destined to explore ruins that may have the chance to slay others, but never yourself? Or are you a Jack? Pulling and teasing from the other styles, touching each of their disciplines, but never mastering any yourself.

Read the first moments of the campaign here. We hope you’ll be able to join us!

Magic League: Ravnica Allegiance @ Bayshore, Greenfield & Mayfair
Feb 8 @ 6:30 pm

Join us for a five-week Magic League, beginning Friday, February 1.

Open three packs of Ravnica Allegiance, assemble your League deck, and play as many games as you want against opponents of your choice! You’ll have an opportunity to reinforce your deck every week, and you’ll get prizes just for completing games—win or lose.

How does it work?
When you enter the league, you’ll open three packs of the new set. From the contents of those boosters and basic lands provided by the store, you’ll then build a 30-card (minimum) deck.

From there, play single-game matches. Each player gets one free mulligan.

Play anyone during the course of the league and as many games as you like—there is no limit on total games. Just try not to play the same person twice in a row. League games may be played any time, but must be played at the Board Game Barrister location where you joined the league.

Track your games: We will have League Record sheets available, to be filled out by you and signed by a Barrister after every game played.

This league does not exclude you from playing in Friday Night Magic or other events. If you want to buy into the league and play some games between or after your matches, you’re more than welcome.

This league will continue through Friday, March 1.

Late entrants welcome!
Players in this league need not be present every league Friday in order to participate. If you miss the first week, you can enter in a later week. By the same token, if you miss any week after the first, you may resume your league play where you left off.

Need Reinforcements?
You may purchase one pack per week to add to your card pool and deck. Each new week begins on League Friday.
OR
Lose three games, and you can purchase another pack to add to your deck.
