Thanks to everyone who attended the tournament.

15 Methuselahs, young and old, met up in the Christmas troll's cave to play a 3R+F tournament. All under the guidance of the reindeer of power, myself.

The tournament went very well. Congratulations to Karim who won with a Smiling Jack at 7 in 1 hour 39 minutes. The final was a close-run thing!

The prizes were distributed as follows:

A surprise Christmas starter for each GW.

In R1, a promo card of your choice for the first VP.
In R2, for the first player to send an opponent into torpor.
In R3, for the predator of the first player with 9 pool or less.

Plenty of cards for all players.

Khudz goes home with the lucky loser prize, a magnificent candy cane!

The finalists go home with vouchers and sleeves, and the winner gets a VTES Christmas bauble!
