Every League Day Is Special!

I’ve had this planned out a while ago, but now it’s official! I’ve decided to go the extra mile and make every league day special! Aardvark Gym will be holding league from 12-4 and the regular weekly Modified-Constructed tournament every Sunday, as usual (this will not change). However, I’m going to add some new stuff- there’s something happening every Sunday! Something for the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Sunday of every month.:

1st Sunday: Casual Tournament Day- I will run a casual, free, Unlimited-Constructed tournament (the tournament is unsanctioned) during league. As the name implies, it’s very causal, and anyone may play (it’s free).

2nd Sunday: Random Prizes Day- I will give out random prizes to players during league. I may also give out prizes to players who show up at league at 12:00pm. Prizes will consist of whatever stuff I have lying around.

3rd Sunday: Experimental Decks Day- I have Chris Nugent to thank for this one. One day, a few minutes before the weekly Modified-Constructed tournament started, he suggested that everyone play experimental decks for the tournament that day. It was a success; we all had a good time. I think it’s a good idea, so from now on, I am designating the 3rd Sunday of every month as “Experimental Decks Day”. Everyone who comes to the weekly tournament will be encouraged to try experimental decks. So, put down your standard/conventional/archetype decks and come to the tournament playing something new and different!*

4th Sunday: Double Points Day- On this day, all league activities that earn you points will earn you twice the amount of points they normally do.

These will apply to the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Sunday of every month, effective immediately. So, tomorrow, June 14th is random prizes day. I’ll give out prizes to everyone who shows up to league during opening and give out more prizes randomly. Next week, June 21st, I’m counting on you all to surprise me with new, experimental decks. I can’t wait to see what you come up with! I’ll even give out a prize to whoever brings the most experimental/unique/original/creative deck.

Thanks to all my loyal players, I hope you enjoy this change!

*yes, playing an experimental deck is optional. I have no way of enforcing this, nor would I want to. You may play whatever Modified-legal deck you want, but I guarantee if you jump the bandwagon on this, you’ll have more fun.
