Ascension: War of Shadows Tournament [Complete]


#41

Ah. Sending another one.


#42

KyakerDude: That’s your Player ID, too?

“Kayak,” without the A, at the beginning?


#43

Ugh… lost way worse than I anticipated to @rinelk, 98-79. I’m blaming the damn leprechaun :slight_smile:


#44

Rightly. A first-round leprechaun is worth a crapload of VP.


#45

And a second loss of the evening to @TheDukester. Another close one in VPs and I lost by one point, 65-64…


#46

Well, games wrapped up and I must say, a 3-3 record is significantly better than my 0-5 record last tournament :slight_smile:

Manipulation of the day/night cycle is risk/reward, but if you et it right it is insane how much value you can generate


#47

Yes. I have the invite. I have a few too many games going at once so I’m not ready to start just yet.


#48

And @KYakerDude falls to the curse! I swear, I get the cheesiest wins. In this tournament, I have a win by tie score and, now, a win by one point, while in the Summoner Wars tournament I’ve out-rolled my opponents by a truly startling margin. I feel like I need to pre-emptively apologize to everyone I play from now on.


#49

LOL.

Oh, the irony.


#50

Good game. I thought I had it in the bag, then your last turn racked up a bunch of points. I had a good final turn, but what do I see? One point!

Cheesy games:
I’m playing another non-tourny game with three players. I managed to get two Leprechauns and have whittled my deck down to almost 5 cards. Soon every turn will be playing two Leprechauns and collecting gold… We’ll see if this is a winning strategy or not.


#51

The leprechauns are kind of cool, but it would be nice to be able to decide whether or not to play with them.


#52

Agreed.


#53

Improved my record to 2-2 with a 90-80 win over @KYakerDude. I led VPs most of the game so was surprised by the ten point spread…


#54

So I guess the tiebreak goes to whoever played last?

Hardco over @Blackfyre 91-91!

After your last turn I was sure I had lost…

Another close one vs @robthomasson , 78-77.

Good games all!


#55

Narrowly defeated @js619 on the last turn by playing the big 10-star guy.

Gg!!!

And yes, ties go to the last player


#56

Less than twenty VP diff at the end of my game with @JHTaube.

halfvoid (77) over JHTaube (60)


#57

One of the stranger rules in all of gaming.


#58

Maybe something to do with a slight 1st player inbalance?

I don’t know.


#59

That’s weird, but I got to accept it, I guess. It’s my first game to tie not only in the end result, but also in the VP earned through cards and monsters.
Gg anyway @hardco


#60

It’s definitely an offset for the first-player advantage.

And not much of one, honestly. Not many Acsension games end in ties, especially with recent sets sending scores into the stratosphere.
