I've been "lurking" since the beginning, but now that I have started making a few posts, I may as well announce my presence :cheer:

My name is Emiliano Imeroni, I am an Italian player, currently prince of Brussels, Belgium. I started playing shortly after Camarilla Edition was released, and after that I have played (and organized tournaments, and tried to set-up and/or maintain playgroups) in Torino (Italy), Utrecht (NL), Swansea (UK) and finally Brussels.

If you are curious about me and VTES, I had once the honor of being interviewed for extrala's blog .

Hi Emiliano! I came to this thread to introduce myself, and I see you here.

My name is Sonam Adinolf. I am an American player, from New York City. I played the game a bit when it first came out, but didn't stick with it. I didn't really get serious about the game till I came back to it in 2005. When I discovered that a Stanislava deck that I made from nothing but some Jyhad and Dark Sovereigns I owned could still win tournaments, I was impressed at the lack of power creep.
I've been playing since then, and travelling around for tournaments since 2006.

Hello there!

Just found this thread and thought I should introduce myself. My name is Max Ogden, I'm a student at Nottingham University and when I'm not there I live in Norfolk, UK. I've only been playing for a couple weeks, but have been spreading the love and now have a small group of friends who are willing to play the game and have taken to it well. When I return to Nottingham I plan to start a playgroup there. I have a space I can use there, and will probably try and buy in some prize support.

My aim is to have roughly 12ish playable decks, all of different clans, all doing a variety of things. This would allow me to teach a table of players as well as offering them variety, and also run three 4 man tables if I get that much interest.

I have been playing ccg's for about 6 years now, mostly Magic and L5R, but also the Spoils and the WoW TCG, and have had some measure of success within them. However, I feel that V:tES is the best I've ever played, and that's after only a few games.

I also roleplay and play other games, notably Heroes of Newerth and Starcraft II, nicely rounding out my geek credentials.

I'm Caroline Hyll from Stockholm, Sweden. I learnt to play this game in 2004 when I studied in the smallish town of Örnsköldsvik. VTES was something of a refugee for the nerds in the town, since most of its habitants rather fancied sports. My first deck was a Final Nights Setite starter.

I like the multiplayer aspects of this camme and, of course, the deck building and strategic parts. My favorite kind of decks are vote decks and toolboxy deck but I have fair share of block- and combat decks too.

I usually attend the European Championships. It's difficult to beat the combination of seeing new cities, of lots of VTES, and of nice people.

Hi from South Africa :)

I've been playing VTES since roughly 1998, when a friend introduced me. I had fewer than 200 cards for a while, mostly a few donations and some boosters. I moved to a city with some stock which I started buying up until I was able to source lots more cards from the US (Ebay and Potomac Distribution FTW). These days I have probably 20,000 cards although I'm not a fervent collector. I prefer donating cards to new players in order to have people to play with and also prefer actually playing with the cards, than trying to have copies of amazing rares.

I find VTES much more enjoyable than the other CCG's I've tried, since it brings a strong social aspect to the game, along with the complex dynamics on 5-player tables and the huge variety of deck ideas.

Our playgroup in the adjoining cities of Johannesburg and Pretoria has see-sawed over the years, although there's a stable core group of about 6-8 people who've stuck around. These days there's some renewed interest again and we have a large group in far-away Cape Town which probably exceeds ours in both size and regularity of events.

It's incredibly saddening that WW's no longer supporting it, since we're enjoying good support here for a change. I only hope things will change again through the sustained support of the VTES community.

I'm Tom and in Michigan USA.

Played from day 1, have been mostly inactive for the past several years as I raise young children and work full time.

I might still be the Prince of Pontiac, MI. Not sure. I haven't run any tournaments and don't have the time to do so, but am willing to help folks find playgroups, buyers/sellers for their cards, etc.

I did the painting that is on the Toy card. Thanks Ben.

I suggest a new strategy...let the Wookie win.
