Re: MECCG at Gateway 2018/LAX on Labor Day Weekend!

Greetings All, Yes, indeed--Gandalf Gene always has a set of (slightly) pumped up hero challenge decks available to play. Saturday and Sunday are equally good, and a few of us will be there on Friday as well. And I live east of LA with almost a 2-hour drive one way, and am planning to drive in all 3...

Re: MECCG at Gamex 2018, LAX Hilton - 26-27 May 2018

Greetings Vastor, Thanks so much for your post! We're actually quite okay with the rule books, it's just that the interactions among the various cards are sometimes difficult to keep track of--for Dain's Dwarf-Lord staging cards, there are a number of opportunities to tap and recycle cards, for exam...

Re: MECCG at Gamex 2018, LAX Hilton - 26-27 May 2018

Greetings All, Just a quick update on the MECCG activities at Gamex 2018 last month. Our attendance is not what it was a few years ago, but we have a very strong core group that attends all of the Strategicons at LAX/Hilton. We have also settled into the routine at the Hilton--there are blocks of ro...

Re: MECCG at OrcCon 2018 (16-18 February)!

Greetings rezwits, Great to hear that there's at least a possibility of an MECCG gathering in Vegas. It won't match the prestige of that castle back in Europe where they have the Lure every year, but at least it's only a 4-hour drive for me. Besides, I have a hankering for White Castle burgers, and ...

Re: MECCG at OrcCon 2018 (16-18 February)!

Greetings, Great to hear from you, and we're looking forward to seeing you in September at the Con at the LAX Hilton! In fact, perhaps we need not wait that long--if you are able to find a decent card store that can host a small MECCG gathering in your area, a few of us might be able to make our way...

Re: MECCG at Gateway 2017, LAX Hilton - Labor Day Weekend!

Greetings All, Thanks so much to those who were able to attend our MECCG events this Labor Day weekend! Turnout was regrettably light again, but those of us who were here held some great games with Hero Arda as well as our customized Hero, Minion, Balrog, and even Dream Card decks! I got an opportun...

Re: MECCG at Gateway 2017, LAX Hilton - Labor Day Weekend!

Greetings rezwits, Just to clarify, as I mentioned earlier, we are *very* relaxed and casual in our playing environment. We've been able to handle everything outside the Dream Cards, even though we've had to refer to the Balrog rules more often than not. :D Even in a casual 1v1 game, we encourage ev...

Re: MECCG at Gateway 2017, LAX Hilton - Labor Day Weekend!

Greetings rezwits, Please see the updated schedule I posted yesterday. Our turnout is expected to be very light on Saturday--I've kept the 3:00 PM Hero event on the schedule, but we probably won't hold anything until Hero Arda at 7:00 PM. It also takes a long time to check into the hotel--in additio...

Re: MECCG at Gateway 2017, LAX Hilton - Labor Day Weekend!

...the 3-day minimum is new/news to me, maybe the LAX hotels have more of a surge than usual for the Labor Day holiday weekend. As much as I'm a fan of the convenience of staying at the Hilton, I'm not a fan of the Hilton--it's an older airport hotel, the food is overpriced, and they don't allow out...
