    Hey looks like WotC is finally sponsoring this stuff. So we can have sanctioned tournaments, maybe a league? This is cool. Jump on it, Jefferson. Let's get some sanctioned tourneys running lol :)

    count me in.

    on a related subject:
    I got this awesome swccg obi wan kenobi holofoil that has all the text in Japanese!!! I was at target today (picking up a copy of the new medal of honor) when i stumbled on this decipher sw pack that had a jedi knights deck and booster, 3 young jedi boosters, and a half-dozen swccg boosters. I was so stoked because I got a good card from a $14.99 investment. It kind of makes me angry when I think about the hundreds of dollars I sunk into buying booster packs, back when the game was popular, and got absolutely nothing.

    I'll look into the sanctioned tournaments and league stuff today.

    EDIT: There's still no information on leagues or sanctioned tourneys on WOTCs website, just a banner that says "organized play -- coming soon." I'll keep checking back, and as soon as I can sign the store up for a league I will.

    Well, I found out some more information on sanctioned tournaments for the new card game. It looks like an overly complicated hassle that would only be beneficial to experienced players who what to track their ratings so they can brag about how good they are. I am more interested in attracting new players to the game, and WOTC's sanctioning system looks like it would actually serve to chase away potential new players by being too complex and competitive.

    I will do an official league as soon as WOTC has one. Until then, the unofficial Star Wars TCG league meets at Clockwork Comics & Games on Wednesday nights. Come on down and play!

    Mike, stop by around 5, that's when I'll be there, plus we can get good seats ;) lol It is free. We will also be playing LOTR. Just bring your decks and we'll have some fun. It's on 2824 S. Broadway, just south of Yale. You can call Jefferson at 303-781-6166 (store) and he can shoot you directions too

    man, tonight is going to be JAM PACKED! lol better crank that Swamp Cooler or we're all going to die! I foresee that you will sell many drinks tonight, Jefferson


    EDIT: We should run a competitive tournament for rankings once a month or something for me, you, Kevin, Jeff, Rob and soon... Mike, Josh.

    It's easy to learn and it's fun to see where you stand lol

    i had a blast. im really glad you guys talked me into it! Im looking forward to playing again, after i make an actual deck. I was totally winging it trying to keep up last night. JO you did a great job of teaching me the game. thanks ALOT. thers still afew things that throw me off, but Ill get it & ill be wiping the floor with you real soon. :D The hardest part of the night was trying to get out of there without spending any money! i was succesful last night, but i cant wait to get more cards, & i really want that Jango comic with Jaster now. i still need the aotc trade paperback too. if i had seen that last night- the dam would have broken. next time Ill try to be there earlier too, sorry we lagged a bit- my fault. I didnt plan well for the distance- Cant wait to play again!

    BIG BIG THANK YOU to Clockwork for running the show & some much needed instruction.
