I'm planning to attend this Con. Probably just Saturday again.

Thanks Tradewind for handling the setup/organization.

Greetings Chris,

Great to hear! If you can be there early enough for the 10:00 Hero vs Hero, that would be great, otherwise I've reserved that afternoon (and evening as well, for that matter) for further deep discussions for you and Gandalf Gene. I'm keeping my Saturday afternoon and evening schedule open for other events, but I would be more than happy to play you a Hero vs Hero game at some point--compared to Gandalf Gene, I have a more subversive (albeit not as solid) approach to Hero decks (and deck design in general), lol!

Greetings All,

Still recuperating from the StrategiCon weekend, a bit more tired than usual--probably getting old, and the musty hotel air wasn't doing me much good either, lol! In between other games, I participated in three Hero Arda games that were probably the most benign we've had at the LAX Hilton, with Dan taking the Saturday game and Gandalf Gene winning both close games on Sunday. We entertained Brian (from Marysville, CA) and Kaonee (from Salinas, CA) with Arda and 1-1 Hero games.

Gandalf Gene and CDavis7M played and undertook deep-dive design discussions for about 9 hours straight on Saturday, and their games did include a dream-card engagement, so I yield the floor to Chris.

I had a great time. Thanks for setting up the event.

Gene and I had an epic 6 hour dream card match. My Lord Balin vs his Lady Galadriel. I took notes and will be posting a wrote up soon. Lots of luck on my side. My company took something like 7 unique dragon attacks and they mostly survived the many body checks.
