A Trip to Whitby – Win-A-Map to Provincials Continues

Standard

This weekend Jason had the pleasure of making a trip to Whitby, for a Win-A-Map event at Comic Book Addiction. Part of a series of tournaments leading up to the ROC Provincials on June 27th at 401 Games.

On this nice cool June afternoon 14 people found their way to the event. And after 3 rounds of Swiss pairings we we’re met with a colourful top 4.

As an aside Jason performed very well in his game but unfortunately had to take a first round 0 point loss as he forgot that the Phoenix Force is not allowed to be assigned to a 25 point Lockjaw. After the end of the first round Jason had a sudden realization and had to point it out the judge. He was then stuck in a rough spot where he had to hope his opponents were bringing some characters from off the board, but to no avail. He managed to place 5th, just outside of the single elimination bracket.

Next time he’ll know.

Overall it was a great time and a special thanks goes out to Ryan and Jane at Comic Book Addiction for running one heck of a tournament.
