Learn to play CCG - South Bay

I came across a deck of MLP CCG cards during FurCon and now have no idea how to play. Let's get together, teach each other how to play then go a few rounds.


This will be held in either San Jose, Santa Clara, Campbell or Cupertino.

    Super fun event. Loved seeing and meeting everybody and thanks to everyone who taught us how to play it was amazingly helpful. Can't wait for the next time I see all you guys (hopefully soon).

    I just posted the tournament for Friday the 21st. Please look for it in the suggested meetups. Good games everyone.

    These are the best gatherings ever! :D I look forward to these types of events, with teaching and playing others, and learning as well!

    That was pretty fun! If we make CCG meetups a regular thing I might try to attend.

    Awesome time learning and then teaching others to play. Mega thanks everyone that showed up! We'll have to do more of these.

    Also, check suggested meets!

    Also, I have work all day until 7pm. So unless this is a "stream in when you can", I might have to bow out.

    We wanna do anything for food for this event?

      Looks good but it's a bit far. There's a McD's across the street and an In N' Out a few blocks down near the south end of the airport.

      February 6, 2014

    • Jose

      In N' Out sounds good to me but I'm sure we'll have to vote on the spot. If anybody needs a ride there I can carpool. I've got space for 4 people.

    In case you need it my cell # is[masked] 3025. Call me if you need anything or want to check what's going on with the meet. I plan to stay as long as people are there playing. Game Kastle says it closes at 10pm so if people want to keep the meet going past that we can always find somewhere else to go (Denny's? Late Movie?).

      Game Kastle's store closes at 10, but on Fridays they have Friday night magic, so they close at around 11. Their Game room also never closes as long as there is a designated person in charge, which there usually is.

      Sounds good.

    How long are you guys going to be there? I have work until 6:30pm, so I might not be able to make it.

    February 5, 2014

    • Quinnton F.

      I'll stay as long as people are there and keep the meet going.

    I have 2 decks now, woot! I hope I got the right ones? They're theme decks (twi/AJ and RD/rarity)

    1 · February 5, 2014

    • Quinnton F.

      I'd say you got the right ones. I have an RD/Rarity one.

    Also just so everyone knows. Hot Topic has a buy one get one half off deal thingy and you can pick up a couple packs from them just in case nobody knew that they carry them (also theme decks).

    Would love to do this with my son. Unfortunately Friday I work with clients in the afternoon and evening...

    February 4, 2014

  • Michael M. P.

    This is the meetup I was hoping would occur :) I picked up the starter kit and both of the theme decks, and I've fooled around with them some, so I'm loaded for Ursa Minor.

    Probably gonna get there around 4, but I'm super excited. Gonna be my first meetup that I'm goong too and can't wait to meet all the new cool people :D. Bringing 3 decks with me and a couple extra cards as well.

    1 · February 3, 2014

  • Heather

    Sounds like fun! Gonna try to buy a deck before Friday. :)

  • Chris P.

    Might be up for this, bringing my 11-year-old if I attend. She placed higher than me at the tournament in SF last weekend.

    And for any one who is going to show up early. I am going to be there at 130pm. Cause I have to go to work at 8.

    1 · February 1, 2014

    • Quinnton F.

      I'm off all day so I'll probably show up early also.

      February 1, 2014

    • Minh N.

      Yay for lack of things to do! I'll be there early as well :/

      February 1, 2014

  • Quinnton F.

    So I set the date and time for Feb 7th @ 6:30pm.

    So, what would work best for everyone? Weekend im guessing. Day time or Night time. This can even be a late night thing as Game Kastle has an all night gaming room. Sunday morning has all of the pokemon players, Sunday night has the Weis Schwartz players. (but pretty empty)
    Friday Night has magic players.
    Saturday is table top gaming night. But any time there should be enough tables for us.

    • Quinnton F.

      How about thurs Feb 6th in the evening.

      January 30, 2014

    • Minh N.

      I'm good to go all Friday, and the weekends.

    Hello, Ive been trying to set up a tournament in this area. I have all of the starters and can let people use them. Im not too good at the game though. Best place I know of to do this kind of meetup is Game Kastle in Santa Clara and they do have promos when I talked to them if we do some kind of tournament.

    2 · January 30, 2014

    • Minh N.

      Game Kastle seems like a good place to go to.

      January 30, 2014

    • Quinnton F.

      I'll put down Game Kastle as the location for now.

      January 30, 2014

  • Quinnton Fox changed the location to Game Kastle

  • Minh N.

    I'm down for some rounds. I've actually been playing the game for awhile, so I can teach ya'll how to play and supply some extra decks for you to use while you learn. I do not have a place available for use however.

    1 · January 30, 2014

    • Andy R.

      I wonder if we can use/rent a comic book shop? I've seen people play games of all sorts at various comic book shops. But I'm unsure about the rules for using the space like that.

      January 30, 2014

    • Quinnton F.

      I don't think they'd mind if we all bought decks/booster packs = )

      January 30, 2014

  • mike

    Do we need to provide our own cards?

    1 · January 30, 2014

    • Quinnton F.

      Not required but might be a good idea to pick up a starter deck. I'm willing to share my deck to help others learn.
