August 2023 Monthly – Event

August monthly turnout – Two people not pictured.

Ten players gathered to play at the Royal Oak for this month’s event. We welcomed a new player, Fred, who first started playing in Revised.

Multi-coloured decks were the hotness with only 2 players opting to bring single colours. Fourteen of the 20 matches were won in 2 games with 2 of the remaining 6 games going to Chaos Orb flips.

Later in the night, local Commander players descended into our reserved area. I could see their attention veer towards our games as Chaos Orb flips started happening.

Both with 3-0 records going into the fourth round, Jimmy (The Deck) and Kevin (12-Bolt) opted to arm wrestle to decide who chooses to play or draw.
