"Informal" Standard Joust event at Gencon (you can call yourself the Standard "World Champion" if you really want)
When: Thursday, August 13, 2009 (essentially after the Legacy Joust event at Gencon)
Where: FFG LCG Area at Gencon (we're "squatting")

Pairings and Prizes: Play will be 3-4 rounds of Swiss, depending on participation. If there are 16 or more participants, we can cut to "Top 4 single elimination" rounds at the discretion of the field. Prizes for 1st through 4th place. (1st place will receive 60 custom-made card sleeves - and can choose the art. 2nd through 4th will choose from available sets of 7 custom-made House card sleeves - enough for a plot deck.)
