Capital Chaos Online Championship – Event
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”
February 2020 Monthly – Event
We had a smaller contingent this week of 11 people as colds and flu ravaged players and even our original venue.

September 2019 Monthly – Event
We were a smaller group this month with 8 players. We had 2 regulars begin round 3 of fatherhood, and we made the mistake of scheduling the event the same evening as the Throne of Eldraine prerelease.
Despite having only 8 players, we saw 3 new decks added to the meta: Reanimator, Merfolk and Bant Midrange.Continue reading “September 2019 Monthly – Event”

We had 18 players for this month’s event at Clocktower. Thankfully, they let us use their basement so we had plenty of elbow room.
We had 4 new players join us with another popping in to see what we’re all about and snagging a few games between rounds.Continue reading “August 2019 Monthly – Event Report”
July 2019 Monthly – Event Report
We topped last monthly’s player count of 15 and had 16 players. That’s right, 16, in the middle of summer.
Clocktower Brew Pub in the Glebe graciously hosted us. Given our track record, they’ll be looking at accommodating us in the basement which will (likely) be a bit cooler than the main floor.Continue reading “July 2019 Monthly – Event Report”
