L5R – Learn to Play and Release Event:

Recommended Posts

Hello :Bye:

So L5R is being released next week!!!!! On Thursday, October 5th, 2017, there should be L5R available for purchase. 


Learn to play:

I am hoping to have two casual learning to play nights at the Store on Thursday October 5th and Friday October 6th, 2017. I am hoping to start around 5:30pm both nights.  I will run other learn to play nights and teach people upon request as well.

Release Event:

Officially most places are running their release event the Saturday after release, Saturday October, 7th. However, the following Monday is thanksgiving and people might be out of town and I am not sure if people are going to feel ready to try and play in a tournament/ Event (even a casual one) 2 days after release??? I was thinking maybe Saturday, October 14th, 2017 for the release events.

The Release Event would be 30/ 30 card decks.  Some players might not be financial able to buy the 3 full starter boxes right after release. In less players want to go full out 3 boxes ASAP. All tournaments after will allow all cards though to be clear.


So need input:

1. Who is coming for one of the learn to play night and which ones?
2. Release event, Saturday October 7th or the 14th  ? 
3. 1-starter box and 30/30 or full out 40/40 decks?

From talking to people , it seems like people want to start playing and making full decks asap. Does anyone have any major objects from running events from the start as 40/40 full 3 starter boxes ??

Hello,

 

Do to work, I am unable to run a learn to play on Thursday night. I will stop by the shop that night when I can. However, I will for sure be at the shop on Friday for a learn to play night. Please let me know if you plan on making it out.

Release Event:

We will be running the release event on Saturday, October 14th, 2017 = 6:00pm – 11pm.  This is to allow Kevin and Milo to still play. Doug said that Kevin or him would keep the store open.  Would this late time prevent anyone from playing?

Hey guys

I need fast responses of this. Who would rater hold off the release tournament for another Saturday (the 21st) and run it during normal game play times 1:00pm to 6:00pm. This would give people more time to learn the game. Would anyone dead against this change?

Also who planed on playing this Saturday ?

I had a great time Brandon thanks for all the work. Unfortunately I probably won't be able to attend many events due to their timing, unless you do evening events again.
