Triple Single Elimination - Victoria, Canada

Dale Friesen

As one of the final parts of our efforts at reviving the Magic community in Victoria over the summer, my fellow certified judge Bill Krauss and I arranged for a second set of three single-elimination standard tournaments at a local comic book shop (Yellowjacket Comics & Toys).

Bill played in the first of these three tournaments, for which we had sixteen people: a surprise, to be sure, but a welcome one. The second tournament also had sixteen (it was after the second round of the first tournament, so twelve people had already been eliminated), and the third had eight.

The first tournament had, in my opinion, the most enthusiasm of the three. People had new decks to try, and some of the people there hadn't played in a sanctioned tournament in over a year. The few rules questions were quite straightforward, dealing largely with stack resolution.

Overall, it seemed like people were glad to come out to organized play, and several people said that the fact that the tournament was sanctioned was a big plus. As school starts up time will be harder to find, but hopefully any momentum we've built up won't dissipate too quickly.
