Here at Chaos Cards, we are official distributors and supporters of the quirky, irreverent TCG The Spoils, which means we get to do fun stuff like send out event packs to stores, run demos at conventions, and arrange big organized play events! With the Victors’ Circuit set of OP events kicking off in the US, we decided it wasn’t fair that the Americans should get all the fun, so we’ve set up our own – and hopefully the first of many – Victors’ Circuit Tournaments over here in the UK! Reserve Sunday 13th March 2016 in your diaries, as the first stop of our circuit kicks off then.

 

The Victors’ Circuit Kicks Off in the UK! – to preregister, please click here 

Over here, we’re taking it to the top level; but we want our Victors’ circuit events to be playable by anyone, there are awesome prizes on offer for top players, but everyone who enters will get a booster pack, just for turning up! (given out during prize giving)

The Inaugural Victors’ Circuit Tournament is set to be held at the Muggleton Inn in Maidstone, Kent, and will hopefully be the first of several such tournaments across the UK, in a similar vein to the tournaments across the pond.

The primary event will be a Sealed Format Tournament, using booster packs from the Seed Saga set. You will receive SIX Seed Saga Booster Packs, with which to build your deck. This event will be a Swiss format, with top 4 play-off.

If you are unfamiliar with Sealed Deck Format rules, please click here for a definitive guide.

Times are as follows

Date : Sunday 13th March 2016

9:30am Arrival, Check In and Player Meeting

09- 16 players, 4 rounds of Swiss, cut to Top 4
17- 32 Players, 5 rounds of Swiss, cut to Top 4

Play will end by 17:30 with prize giving taking place up to 18:00. Rounds will be 45 Minutes long, with 3 turns after the one you are on when time is called.

There will be a lunch break, if 4 rounds of Swiss, 1 hour, if 5 rounds of Swiss, 1/2 hour , lunch will take place between rounds 2 & 3

Please note that you will keep your original decks for the Top 4 Play-Off

However, if sealed is not your thing or your tournament takes a turn for the worse, then there will be a special side event of our own invention, which we have dubbed the Xtremely Good Format, or XGF for short! XGF is a constructed format tournament, with a few restrictions:

  1. Tournament factions only (basic faction cards)
  2. 15 Influence maximum starting influence
  3. 45-50 card deck size
  4. Sets that can be used: 2nd Edition, Seed III, Shade of the Devoured Emperor, Holy Heist, Seed Saga

Rounds will be short and action-packed, so prepare for some speedy play! 20 Minutes rounds!

There will also be space to play your own casual games if you should choose to do so.

The Muggleton Inn, Maidstone8666212348_c5f8e2498d_b

Set out over four floors and built in 1827, the Muggleton Inn was originally Kent Fire Brigade’s Head Office. When Kent Fire Brigades head office was relocated the building was then home to an insurance company. The Muggleton Inn was born just over nine years ago and still retains much of the splendour from the original interior design.

After a big refurbishment at the end of 2014, it is now a large and comfortable Wetherspoons branch, with a wide, affordable menu and plenty of rooms for private events – they’ve had everything from Magic: the Gathering tournaments to ghost hunts! We’ll be taking up an upstairs floor for our Spoils Tournament, so we’ll have a large space all to ourselves!
