    Dates? Singapore July 'Light and Casual' Physical Card Meltdown Draft Tournament

    Designed to be a light and easy and causal meet up.

    It's likely at NeBo games cafe at AMK hub. It will be one of the weekday evening/night in early july.

    The admin fees has not be decided yet, but it won't be hefty.

    No buying of boosters needed, since it's meant to be light and easy.

    I will provide all the cards; just return them back to me once the tourney is over.

    How the drafting will work:

    Step one: each player is assigned 4 heroes. We'll roll a d20 dice four times each to determine which are the 4 heroes.

    Each player will be given 4 packs x 20 cards. Each player can look at all his cards and heroes and finally decide on the hero.

    Everyone will be informed on everyone's choice of hero and provided with the appropriate hero card.

    Step 2: the drafting

    We'll be in a 'circle' and everyone selects a card from his first card pack and passes the rest of the cards to the next person a clockwise direction.

    The process is continued until everyone has 20 cards. Everyone picks up the second card pack of 20 cards and repeats the process. The same for pack 3 and pack 4.

    Drafting ends.

    Step 3: deck construction, 80 cards, minimum deck size is 40.

    Step 4: sleeve all your cards (provided by me) and let the games begin.

    At the end of the tourney, simply pass the cards back to me.

    This thread is merely to discuss location and possible dates; once the details are finalized, an actual announcement post will be made.

    Thanks!

    If you would like to bring your own dice, life counters, play mats, beads, hot chicks to share, please feel free to do so. In any case, I will have enough supplies for all players. If anyone has any question, please feel free to ask me or my fellow TO, geckt.

    Thank you!

    Why did you buy tickets for BDK only?

    Dates? Singapore July 'Light and Casual' Physical Card Meltdown Draft Tournament

    If there's anything regarding the "new" meltdown drafting format, it's identical to that of Magic the Gathering's popular booster draft format.
    As Raph mentioned, each round of drafting is X number of packs where X is equal to the number of participants.
    Each time a card is pick by a player from the pack, the pack is then pass on to the next player in a clockwise or anti-clockwise direction in the next round of drafting.
    There's no real "bad" drafts in this format as I like to believe in and also it adds up to the skill needed in deck construction.

    I've decided to "cancel" July's event.

    Zhou86 (from Malaysia) will be visiting Singapore in July; it's a rare opportunity and hence Geckt and I will be hosting him for a game session. He shall be the VIP of the day; we'll like to thank him for his contributions to the SE forum community.

    The date will be 17th July, in the afternoon, probably around 2:30pm onwards to 6pm. The timing are not fixed as it will be dependent on Zhou's arrival time and schedule. The meet-up location will likely be at Suntec City Food Court (I do vaguely remember there are plenty of large, broad, sturdy long tables).

    Everyone's invited but it will be a Constructed Format Only event; which means that players must bring your own decks/cards down. (As per standard operating procedure, my guild's members can simply borrow my decks.)

    If you have your own Constructed decks and wish to attend, please PM me or Geckt. I will be contacting Berdugo and Atomzed since I know they have the necessary cards/decks.

    Thank you!

    Raph, Suntec is under major renovation now and the food court you remember is gone. There's a new Food Republic opened up to replace it, but it doesn't have as many big tables.

    Just FYI
