I once dedicated a weekend to demoing VTES at an Anime con. I gave out the decks at the demo and sold tickets to a VTES tournament for new players. I ended up getting one table together for the tournament, and they all seemed to enjoy themselves, but no one stuck to the game.

That was the very problem for which I created the decks back in 2005. I was Prince of Dallas and was trying to figuring that if new players had decks they would participate in the playgroup more. Currently. Sell a set of a seven decks (one for each of the original Jyhad Clans) for $36 on eBay. I sell a set a week. Demand has gone up since the game got canceled because starters are more scare. I called the concept the Barbed Wire Project and you can find the first crude Decklists on usenet.

I made decks that are mostly from Jyhad commons- one for each clan. I've been perfecting the build over the years so that they've gotten pretty darn competitive. I once did a series of demos at a convention that cultivated in a tournament for new players using those decks and had good success. I can supply you with the deck lists.

FINALLY! WOO HOO!!!!!! I can offer additional decks (I have approximately 110 decks of various competitive levels ready to go, most with sleeves) and also I am willing to add to the prize support. I've also got some really excellent infrastructure (pool counters, turn reference cards, etc.) for teaching people to play the game. Drop me a line -- I'd be more than willing to do anything I can to help. This is why I joined DGS . :-)
