New Starter Decks

Black Chantry have released some excellent new starter decks that allow you to buy and play straight out of the box with a decent deck.  The decks contain an excellent assortment of cards, even for continuing players, so check them out at your local store.  Realms of Magic and Miniatures are stocking it here in Townsville!

If your local store isn't stocking them (in Australia), drop me a line and I'll put you in touch with the distributor.

Not dead yet!

Although it has been a long time since my last update, VTES in Townsville is still going strong with new players entering the fray.  More recently we have seen Black Chantry Productions return VTES to print with a new set called Lost Kindred and some reprints of key cards from older sets.  These sets are being sold as Print-on-Demand from Drive Thru Cards.

Random VTES Fact #1

The vote provided by a political card (the card action itself) is not cast by the vampire but by the Methuselah.  This vote can be cast however the Methuselah sees fit (for, against or not cast at all).

Townsville 2014 Continental Qualifier

The Townsville 2014 Continental Qualifier was held last weekend with a total of 8 people participating.  The tournament was a 2 round plus final event that saw 3 new players take part.  Round 1 saw only 1VP on each table but round 2 had a game win and a time out, making VPs rather few and far between on the day.  There was a 3 way tie for 3rd going into the final, luckily the final table was 5 players.

Final standings were:
Mark 7VP 2GW - Weenie Auspex featuring Tariq
Shannon 2VP 0GW - Brujah Anti Toolbox-ish
Penne 2.5VP 0 GW - Show of Force with Cailean, Marcus Vitel and Huitzilopochtli
Chris 1VP 0GW - Raptor wall featuring Baron Dieudonne
Ozzy 1VP 0GW - G2/3 Toreador Bleed
