Marth & the Machines #55 - Sorscha v. Caine

And here's another one, hot off the press - Sorscha v. Caine! It's the first time Arides and Me break out his fine portable gaming table and have a go. We're still a bit light on terrain, but that'll change... someday! ;)

Until then, Enjoy!

Marth & the Machines #54 - Zerkova v. Kraye

Whoops. Looks like I forgot about posting my videos here. And with this being my own blog! *Gasp*

Here's a very delayed report, coming to you from last year's summer - Zerkova v. Kraye, 35 points, Revelation. Enjoy!

The faded black T-shirt 02

Been to the tournament in Koblenz yesterday. Went... well, the end result turned out way better than I had anticipated. I met some players from last week, which was fun, and my opponents were mostly great to play against. In total, ten people attended (out of an in-tended 16), a lot of them being more or less new to the game.
And to prevent myself from forgetting to mention it later on: My dice were well-behaved. All losses I incurred were due to misplays on my part, which is quite a relief.

Here's my rundown:

Another Prep Game

Tomorrow (Saturday) is the day of another Tourney in Koblenz, this time, at the "Zeitgeist" LGS. In preparation for this, I had another game with Arides. This allowed me to use my second list at least once before the tournament.

It was kinda important, as I am taking Izak Harkevich to completement Zerkova's Hunting Wolves. For scenario, we rolled a classic - Destruction! Size was 35 points, and he was, again, packing Kraye. I think he wants to leave me in the dark about his second list.

The faded black T-shirt 01 (Tourney Update)

So, uh, been to Koblenz, participated in three rounds of Steamroller 2012, as formerly announced.

Didn't do so well, I placed 7th out of 10, which is kind of to be expected when you lose games 1 and 3. Had I won the first one, I might've made 6th, which was my personal goal. First and foremost, thanks to Cidster (the PG) and the players from the CTU LGS. Every opponent - while sometimes taking a little "getting used to" - was a blast to play against.

A short rundown:

Tourney Prep Game

Alright, so next Saturday is the second Steamroller Tournament hosted by CTU Koblenz (a LGS). It's a 35 points, 2-List, 40 minutes Deathclock tournament. The scenarios featured are Overrun, Supply and Demand, A Flag too far, and - if there's a fourth round - Command and Control.

Luckily, I managed to get a practice game in yesterday against Arides. We both had two lists made to choose from, and for scenario we chose Supply and Demand (because I forgot four flags at home and we were playing at our FLGS).

While my brother was playing "unclocked", I tracked my time a special way - I made an iPod playlist which was exactly 40 minutes (well, 40:03...). Due to a lack of pictures taken (and a great number of unprocessed M&tMs), this won't get it's own video report, but I thought it could be worth featuring here.
