Oligarchy Tournament

On Tuesday as part of our weekly games evening we held our very first competitive Oligarchy event. It was a 8 booster sealed which went really well.


Each round was an hour in length with an addition 5 turns if the games were unable to finish in this time, with the deck building process taking just under an hour and a few practice games before hand gave us over 4 hours of Oligarchy fun!


Oligarchy is a new game and deck building a new game is never easy. Trying to work out what will go well in a sealed format is tricky and can be a bit intense but everyone that played really enjoyed both the process and the games they played.


We had a mix of experience from the game designer himself Gary Wareham, through to players that had played just a couple of games. One card that seem particularily brutal was appropriately named 'Death' a once in a lifetime card. Costing 16 IP and 16 AP, it certainly is not cheap to play but if you can get there, then it is pretty hard to stop and almost impossible in sealed. (for a full list of cards check out the Oligarchy Website Codex : http://www.oligarchygame.com/cardSearch.html)


Now that we have a few players, the next event for us will be a constructed deck tournament on 28th May as part of Gambit Games monthly meeting. More details to come very soon!!!
