Since January we have had a total of 81 players attend one of our events which include prereleases, launch parties, game days, junior competitions and of course KD Magic Nights (Friday Night Magic)! There have been over 72 different events of various formats and types!
Firstly last years champion will get a chance to come back and defend his title,so Michael Pike is the first on the list! Sam Chapman, Simon Wright and David Sanders are the next as they won in previous years.
Our winner from gaming convention 'CONQUEST' which was Mike is already on the list so onto pre-release events
The grand tournament is invite only and anyone that has won an individual pre-release during the year will automatically get an invite, so this adds in the following players:
Nathan Minter, Daniel Bonnett and Aaron Burns Lees!
Also included will be the player who has scored the highest average in all the events they have played in this year (they must have played in at least 5 events) which is Michael Pike with an impressive 8,97! As he is already on the list we moved down the highest average scores to the next player not already invited which will be Chris Sisley at 7.17!
Finally we then add in the top 12 ranked players not including those already selected to take the total to 18 players which are:
Paul Da Vall, Ivan Miles, Elliott Miles, Nick Murphy Cunningham, Faron Young, Bell Benstead, George Lake, Nick Lewis, Marc Le Cras, George Kennedy, Gibby Gumbrell and Piers Kennedy.
All players will receive an invite in the next day or so via facebook and I would ask that you please reply as soon as possible as if you can not attend then I can invite the next players on the list!
The Grand Tournament will be held on Sunday 27th December (as part of our last Gambit Sunday) starting at 10am and finishing at 6pm.
The event will consist of a draft lasting 3 rounds, followed by a break for lunch and then 1 rounds of STANDARD and 2 or MODERN. Entry to the event will cost £13 (£4 for Gambit Games and £9 to cover the Battle for Zendikar draft)
The winner will receive a signed John Avon Playmat...
Good luck to everyone that has qualified and I hope that you can make it to fight for the right of being the 2015 Gambit Grand Master!
