So, while it did not run at Dexcon, the NYC Dojo ran the NY / NJ State Championship last night. 6 warriors turned out to play
Myself : Dragons, Good Ole Boys, Big Bruiser, ITAYG, Dragon Goodstuff
Julian Lighton : Udated BRAIIINS (Real name is something along the lines of 'Eating Brains for the Greater Glory of the Lotus - speed Lotus with Walking Corpses, Evil Chanting, etc, and a very special King Of the Underworld)
Brian Smith-Sweeney : An Ad hoc deck Purist deck cobbled together from Dark Future boxes he had at work, plus some help from the guys at the game.
Chris Choi : Tower of Power with Ascended and stuff
Greg Scherzo : Classic Archie Abomination Deck
Josh Kronengold : There were large Monarch Things...
The prelims had Julian, Greg and I facing off at one table, and Josh, Chris and Brian at the other. Brian made quick work of his opponents, while it took Julian a fair bit longer to win against Greg and I.. there were many ebb and high tides in the game, with much point takeout, and much Ki yahhing of Julian's power.
The highlight of the finals was Julian being using King of the Underworld, after I intercepted, so that my ITAYGs were no longer useful...
Thus Julian stands as the official NY / NJ CHampionship, in an interesting finals. Fortunately, Julian fully intends to come and represent the NYC Dojo at Gencon.
In the repechage, Josh made short work of his opponents, and will (eventually) take home an uncut sheet generously provided by Daniel Griego for this purpose.
