Double post because I'm admin
We had a busy Saturday at Nice, and it's now time to start this Sunday at Marseille ! This was a first time for many reasons, one of them being that the shop owner worked really hard until this morning so that the venue could be available for us. The first time is always the occasions for some surprises we have to adapt with, hopefully the shop owner has been really helpful and we were able to run the tournament still.
Friendly reminder: Watch out for your belongings. 5 players lost or forgot their decks at their tables. For 3 of them, because they couldn't have been found at the start of the round, they were forced to get a Game Loss and risk a drop (per the rules). On top of that, this is a really stressful situation, both for yourself, for us staff, and for almost every player, fearing that a thief could actually be there.
Honorable mention to the genius who gave his deck to his other genius friend, and both were wondering where could the deck be, only to figure lut at the end of the round
If you think this does only happen to the others, then it means that it either will happen to you or that it already happened to you in the past
Hopefully, all lost items, including decks, have been found and delivered to their respective owners
. Well, except for 3 basic lightning energies

Thank you everybody for coming, this was a great weekend full of emotions, nice games (I love this format), cards and cultural trades (the best when attending an International tournament), and much more.
For Spring we now leave it to Montpellier and Toulouse for the 5 and 6th March (to be confirmed), and see what could be improved for an even better experience next year. See you next time!
