I live in Lancaster, so I'll be sticking my head in! Sadly, am leaving for vacation the 8th, so won't be available for the finals, but this should be a lot of fun!
I can take the fun out of anything. It's true; here, look at this spreadsheet.

Kich,

Great news. See you there. I will be around for open gaming too if you want to play casual games of Mage Wars. I am bringing all my spellbooks and expansions.

Tom

Apprentice Spellbooks for Round 1 of this tournament (on August 6th) are now on the Mage Wars Tournament HQ page here.

Top players from Round 1 will customize one of these in Round 2 and graduate to full mage for the rest of the tournament.
