Keyforge Tournament Feb 9 at noon

When:  February 9 at noon. Entry is $6. 4 Rounds (best 2 out of 3 games) Time limit: 100 minutes per round Archon: Bring your own deck. Adaptive: Each round of this tournament consists of best-of-three matches. For the first game of each match, players use their own decks. For the second game, each player swaps decks with his or her opponent and plays using his or her opponent’s deck. If the third game occurs, players bid chains to use the deck which won both of the previous games. The player who brought the deck starts by bidding 0 chains, and then the players take turns outbidding each other until a player declines to bid higher. The player who bid the highest uses that deck for the third game (with their bid number of chains applied at the start). 4-0 players get a Keyforge Discovery Wormhole playmat. Other promotional cards will be given out as door prizes.
