check TWD and report: 7th Great Symposium, Mikkeli October 7th. 2023

16 Oct 2023 06:28 - 26 Oct 2023 09:21 #109564 by Lasu
Tournament: 7th Great Symposium
Date: Saturday October 7th, 2023
Place: Ravintola Kivijalka, Mikkeli, Finland
Players: 10
Format: Constructed, 3R+F
Organizer/judge: Lasse Pöyry
Winner: Pasi Karjalainen

We had nice and cosy preliminary rounds - mostly finishing in time outs. Only Otso was so greed that he swept two out of three rounds. Also the finals timed out, so 2 GW from 7 tables...

Final round was:

Otso (Ministry vote)
Lasse (Nadima&Mirembe vipers&temptation)
Pasi (Anarch/Barons toolbox, see below)
Mikko (Banu Haqims)
Antti (Legionnairs with Matasuntha [no show in the finals])

Very short description of the finals is, that I (Lasse) had an awful crypt draw and wasn´able to defend myself. Main fight was between Antti and Otso, while Pasi was waiting for the right moment (and did not have any pressure) and Mikko was balancing whether to go forward and take a VP from Antti or to let Legionnairs weaken Otso. In the end (and it really was close) ousts for Otso (1vp), Antti (1,5vp) and Pasi (1,5vp), and Pasi won the tournament with higher rank.

This was first tournament for Mikko and he was close to win the finals (so was Antti and Otso). Also first tournament (and first games) for another 13 year old player, who happens to have same address as me...

Since this apparently has been the first TWDA entry of Saku Pihlajamäki, in addition to the traditional accolades involved with a tournament win, Pasi Karjalainen will receive an autographed copy of full bleed art version of Saku Pihlajamäki.

(Autographed at least by your truly but we'll probably be able to get Noora autograph it as well...)

Finnish :POT: Politics!
