Casual MTG at LANslide Gaming Center

LATE NOTICE MEETUP!

Do to unforeseen circumstances, a small scheduling hiccup mean that some previous plans have been altered. So, because we had such a great time a few weeks ago, we will once again be doing a bit of Casual MTG at LANslide in Clinton. Come join the fun!

We will be getting together this Thursday the 22nd from 5:30-10pm at LANslide Game Center, located at 6449 Old Alex Ferry Road, Clinton, MD:

IMPORTANT: DUE TO THE GROWING POPULARITY OF THIS EVENT, WE HAVE MOVED LOCATIONS! While a bit out of the way, LANslide Game Center has more space than Eagle & Empire. We never want to exclude anyone, and we figure an extra few minutes drive is worth it.

Since our events are multiplayer, please try to arrive on time. There’s plenty of free parking and food options are available (nom nom KFC, baby...).

The Group:

This is a steadily growing group that meets every other weekday. We are all casual players - working folks with families and kids. Some veterans, some not, but all are welcome. If you enjoy trying out new decks, helping others learn, and a low stress, easy going vibe, then come on by and join in the fun!

The Format:

Format is EDH/Commander, w/ perhaps some other formats as time allows. If you're just getting back into the game, feel free to bring along what you have, and we'll make it work (we always have extra EDH decks you can borrow!). New to EDH/Commander? Check out http://mtgcommander.net/rules.php for all you need to know!

How We Role:

1) We play for fun. That means we allow ‘take backs’ (within reason, of course). It means we allow others to help you (but only when you ask for help - we don’t ever want players to feel like they’re being ‘told’ how to play). Mostly, though, it means we don’t tolerate general meanness.

2) We support our venue. Honestly, if you owned a business, the last thing you would want is people squatting at a table for hours, just taking up space. If we’re at a game shop, try to buy something. Because…well my goodness, moochers do suck.

3) We encourage the use of proxies. Our general rule of thumb for proxies is, “So long as you aren’t proxying simply for the sheer beat down value of the card (Mox’s, Time Walk, 4th Edition Dual Lands, etc.), then basically you’re good”. The idea of proxing is to access cards (that are either too expensive or hard to find) for the *fun* value, not the *win* value (http://magic.bluebones.net/proxies/ and http://magiccards.info are excellent resources).

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
