The event sent $2,553.46 for the Ottawa Food Bank. With their purchasing power, this means feeding almost 15 families of 4 for a month.Continue reading “ChaosCon Event Report”

In the last two weeks of Feburary 2022, 56 players gathered to play 5 webcam matches of Magic. These players represented 6 Old School communities across Canada, and a group of Outsiders looking to defeat the Canadians for their Cup.
Congratulations to the winning community, Quebec City Brew Crew, who selected Le Pignon Bleu (The Blue Gable) to receive the $1,234 raised. Le Pignon Bleu helps less fortunate families in the Quebec region.Continue reading “Boreal Community Cup 2 Event Report”
In March, 16 dragon masters from all across the EST timezone lined-up to battle for some gold.
We had a better representation of the dragons this time. Instead of half of all decks being Nicol Bolas, he commanded a more reasonable quarter of the decks out there. Arcades was the most popular dragon in March partly owing to the fact that Joel and Andrew, the only two people who had their dragons assigned randomly, were both running her.Continue reading “Dragon Brawl II – Tournament Report”
The Canadian Old School communities’ organizers hosted the very first Boreal Community Cup: a one-day webcam event on February 6.
70 players from across the world battled for their community using the Boreal ruleset, effectively 4-Strip-Mine Atlantic. Thanks to the players and donors, the event raised $1,905 for Jeunesse au soleil (Sun Youth). And an especially big thanks to our judges, David Lachance-Poitras and Robert Hinrichsen, who put in a lot of work to make sure the event didn’t go too off the rails.Continue reading “Boreal Community Cup Event Report”

We did it! We hosted 33 Old School magicians for a one-day, 6-round webcam tournament. We sent $350 to the Ottawa Food Bank, earmarked for COVID-19 relief.
We really appreciate those who took the time to play in the event as we adjust to our new normal.
I can’t say the event went without hiccups. We were planning on using Wizards’ event software and it turns out some features were locked, so we scrambled to find a solution before the tournament started. Between that, and a few technical difficulties as people got used to their setups, we had a late start. Thank you for not giving us too much of a hard time about it.Continue reading “Capital Chaos Online Championship – Event”
We had a smaller contingent this week of 11 people as colds and flu ravaged players and even our original venue.
We played at a different Royal Oak location commonly used by Commander players so we were in good company of other Magic brothers and sisters.Continue reading “February 2020 Monthly – Event”
