Hi there, this is Agustin Lozano, aka AgusBalin at GCCG. I started to play our great game in the 90's, though I quitted playing for a few years till summer of 2005, when my old friend Manuel Cabezali persuaded me to play at Spanish Nationals that year. I am an active player since then, both online a...

Man, where were you when I was living in Ireland? I couldn't find anyone to play :?
Anyway, I hope to meet you at Worlds!

Spanish players passed a motion about this subject a few months ago. We (Concilio de Rivendel members) proposed and players decided (around 70% said yes) the following proxies rules: 1. Maximum of 10 proxies per deck (sideboard included) 2. Any expansion, thoug card text must be in Spanish or Englis...

I say yeah too, but I strongly recommend that Brian changes his nickname to... Elessar?? :P Concerning Frodo's words, I absolutely agree: we need regular emails to know what's going on at CoE. About Worlds, I could not really say if it is a good idea to change it to another kind of event... I like W...

Sorry if this is not the proper thread, but I'm wondering... I have spent a year as a CoE member for what? No proposals, no resolutions, no emails until I've got this one from Wolfgang... to elect a new CoE! So, what's the point? I have not been very active lately, but I visited our forum from time ...

Expect 15 Spanish players at least. Concerning how to travel there, as Marc Roca pointed on the other topic, there are two airports nearby, Barcelona and Girona (there is a third one called Reus, but is a bit further from the venue). Girona airport has really low fares, because it is run by Ryanair....

As far as I know, Worlds 09 will be held from Friday to Sunday. Anyway, I have just asked Marc Roca, our organizer, if it would possible to start on Thursday. I prefer so, more days = more fun. In that case, I could run a tourney based on the 'Battle of Five Armies' scenario, as we played during las...

Agus, what do you mean? Do you have any accusations? As you said, 'It`s pretty obvious but there is no evidence.' I really appreciate Marcos as a friend so far, then if he says he was not there coaching his friend, I must believe him. But I can't assure you that Kike and me will play next NatsCup.....

It is supposed to be played on Friday at 19:00 GMT+1 (to be confirmed by Asathor, though I think it's ok with him).

Betting allowed! :wink:

I thought Birk was going to organize Worlds at Berlin... at least I was told so last summer at Antwerp. Anyway, any other german town will be nice, for sure (I just wanted to sing "First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin" :lol:). I don't know Marc Roca's proposal about this subject, though if G...
