Arvika Festival VIII

November-February is some of the slowest months in old school. Events are few and it's basically three months without any live tournaments. The start of the old school year has been the Arvika Festival for many years and the crew have been putting up some solid events. That I was very excited for this event is an understatement. The shark swam back to Arvika I visited Arvika for the first time the autumn of the 2018 and I managed to win that one and got a shark that time, I haven't missed a tournament in Arvika since then. I have started to love the Arvika community; the small city is very similar to Mariehamn on Åland where I grew up. I guess this city has the highest concentration of old school players per capita in the World. Traditionally all tournaments have been arranged in a small place outside of the city but this time they settled for the Scandic conference area. This time the start time was also settled for noon instead of 5 PM, which is great as the tournaments tend

X-Files Invitational #6 - Deck pics

Welcome to the new year everyone. I haven't been writing much lately but I will eventually when I start going to live tournaments again (Arvika, n00bfest, Raging Bull, Lobstercon, Tron Wars, Winc0n, Uthden Troll Cup and The Plague are what I'm looking at at the moment). Until then I will just post some deck lists from our small gathering of friends. We got 9 people this time which is decent from my small invite list. As Tolaria f*cked up and wanted to give Matt Harper a bye every round even though he already got one we don't have the real standings. Jordan Boyle ended up winning with his deck "Boyleing Blue", the deck that he managed to top 8 n00bcon 2019 with. 1st place - Jordan Boyle (4-1) 2nd place - Anton Glans (3-1-1) 2nd place - Ole Rustad (3-1-1) 4th place - Micke Thai (3-2) 4th place - Åland (3-2) 4th place - Greg T (3-2) 7th place - Charles Klein (2-3) 7th place - HW MTG (2-3) 9th place - Matt Harper (1-4) Missed the time by 6 hours - I am Säb (0-0)
