Didn't get the full 25 players that the cube would've supported but I'm still very happy with 20 we got.

Drafted in one large table and kept up a quick pace due to Swedes needing to get to the Stockholm ferry well before it was leaving. Just barely managed to complete the finals on time. Kari got 3 VPs in the final and thus a clear win; congrats!

Apparently the Sabbat themed humongous draft set worked at least reasonably well as I didn't get any negative comments from players and would've welcomed such commentary in order to improve on my first draft cube design.

MANY thanks to Nicholas and Eve for lending me a hand in sleeving and sorting the 2600 cards and Marko for bringing the laptop and basically taking care of the Archon duties!

Also apologies for being so horrendously late with this TWD report!

Some additional info regarding the format from FB.
IIRC When we sleeved cards we noticed that I had originally counted slightly off and we needed to lessen the number of cards for each discipline from 20 to 19.

And no, even if I dearly would love to do so I won't be writing he contents of the cube any time soon (perhaps some day). Just TOO many different cards :/

"In addition to the last Grand Prix of 2019 on Saturday July 27th there'll be a VTES Draft at Ropecon on Sunday 28th.

It'll use a Draft Set/Cube and is Sabbat themed. No grouping rules and there is a humongous amount of Vampires (400 hundred different with 2 each in the set). Library cards are focusing nearly exclusively on commons and uncommons (four each 20 different cards for each of 13 disciplines plus multi-discipline cards and 2 each of the rest of the card types) with worst wallpaper weeded out as much as possible.

Since no actual boosters are involved this event is free with Ropecon attendance. 25 persons will be able to participate; if more people turn up we'll oil everyone up and do some wrestling to see who will be able to participate...

Cards will be sleeved so you only need to bring your own pool counters and VTES knowledge. Event is kinda aimed at non-beginners.

Format is 2R+F preceded by drafting and deck building. Starting hopefully at 10 or 11, but still waiting for the confirmation from the convention. When I get the confirmation I'll also make a separate FB event as well as entry to the VEKN event calendar."

and

"Everyone gets 8 "boosters"; each has 13 cards out of which 4 are vampires.

Everything was dictated by the cards I wanted to include.
Also no recursion this way so those who manage to get some awesome cards can't abuse them twice..."

Some gameplay pics.
I kinda remembered that I took pics of the final table but looking at these now I kinda think not. No idea basically... (at least there is no Kari's winning !Bru deck in any) :/
