Well there was a $3 entry fee and the prizes were great. 1st-4th places got prizes. The Rules were no Japanese Cards allowed and regular Upper Deck Restrictions but it was 1/1 not 2/3. This made me happy because I have a tendency of screwing up right when I am winning and it was 15-minute rounds. If the time limit is exceeded the person with the most Life Points left is declared the winner.

1st Place- $50 Store Credit and 2 Boxes of Each Set Including Japanese

2nd Place- $25 and 1Box of Each Set Including Japanese

3rd Place- 30 Boosters of Your Choice

4th Place- 10 Cards of Your Choice + 10 Boosters of Your Choice


It was a 7 Round Swiss Battle and then they have a Top 4. There would be byes. A win meant 3 points a draw meant 2 points and a loss meant 1 point.


Round 1

Bye for me


3 Points


Round 2 vs Daniel(Dragon Deck)

Well it started it out great. I had tribute to the doomed, summoned skull, la jinn the mystical genie, fissure, and Raigeki. I went first. I layed down la jinn face down and put down a trap hole I just drew face down. He went and layed down a baby dragon face down. I actiavate trap hole and baby is gone. He passed. I drew a pot of greed and I used it getting another trap hole and a witch of black forest. I tribute la jinn and lay down summoned skull. I lay down a trap hole and attack with summoned skull. He draws and has no monsters or traps. I go drawing another summoned skull. I lay down the la jinn and also lay down a seven tools of the bandit. Attack! He goes and lays down something I donít know I think itís a mirror force. He passes. I draw a card Heavy Storm. I use it sending away all magic + traps. It was a mirror force but heck I could have just used seven tools. I attack and good game.


6 Points


Round 3

Another Bye. Woo hoo!!


9 Points


Round 4 vs Katherine (A deck similar to mine)

The worst hand ever. All I get is 2 blue eyes, a summoned skull, a magician of faith and a dark hole. She goes first layes down a couple of traps and some thing face down. I draw a card pot of greed. I use it but she uses a magic jammer =(. I lay my magician of faith facedown and pass. She turns it over and itís a neo the magic swords man. She attacks and kills it but I recover pot of greed. My turn I get a giant soldier of stone. I use a pot of greed and I get a shield and sword and a swords of revealing light. I play swords of revaliing light. I lay down my giant soldier of stone attack position and use shield and sword. I attack and kill neo. Her turn she gets nothing and passes. I draw a man eater bug and lay it down face down and attack with giant soldier of stone but she uses Waboku. Ok. She gets a monster but face down and passes. I draw a robbin goblin. I activate man eater bug and destroy her magician of faith. Attack. Ok she gets something but its not a monster. Itís a trap. I go lay down a heavy storm. Then I tribute both monsters and get blue eyes. I attack. One more turn and I win. She lays down a trap and passes. I lay down a seven tools of the bandit that I just drew. Then attack. She flips over mirror force and so I activate sevemn tools and I win.

Derek Vs Terry


Semi-Finals Vs Jane

Ok since there was no intentional draw allowed in the playoffs we decided to play.

Duel! Ok I got a great hand going into this match but she won the flip. She put down a magic or trap down and passed. I go put down a seven tools of the bandit and a trap hole. I lay down La Jinn she activates trap hole, I activate Seven tools and then attack. She goes and lays down a monster face down and passes. I go and draw pot of greed. I use it and get tribute to the doomed and a magic jammer. I lay down magic jammer then use tribute to the doomed and bury my mask of darkness. I tribute my la jinn for summoned skull and also lay down an ultimate offering and then I attack. She draws a card and uses fissure I activate magic jammer and discard a shield and sword. She passes. I draw a man-eater bug and lay it face down. Attack with summoned skull. She goes and lays down a monster facedown. I draw a blue eyes white dragon. I flip over man eater bug and kill her monster then I tribute both and bring blue eyes out. Obliterate and I win!!! Woo hoo. Jane was not sad at all. Thatís what I like about her. She takes losses pretty well.

Well Derek beat Terry in a few turns so I realized how hard it was gonna be for me.

Championship Match Vs Derek(With a Spell caster deck)

I came into this match too confident and for that I payed. Yes I did lose but here is the match. I started with absolutely no monsters in my hand. And he went first. He got 2 Dark Magicians out pretty fast because of his Ultimate Offering. Little did I know I could also use it. I was able to defend my self for the first 5 turns but from there downhill. By Turn 10 it was 5200-300. I got a Raigeki woo hooo. I used it. I played a la jinn with a summoned skull in my hand. Attack! 3400-300. He got no monsters or trap or magic. I go get summoned skull up and running with a Giant Soldier of Stone in my hand. This is where I couldíve won the match because ultimate offering was still in play.  900-300. Iím coming back. He gets pot of greed lays down a trap and uses fissure on my skull and passes. I play a giant soldier of stone and he activates a trap hole. He draws and plays a man-eater bug. He attacks with it and wins. 900-0
