25 Mages gathered for the first Sisters of the Flame tournament that we ran alongside GP New Jersey on October 27th, 2018 at Cheeseburger in Paradise. People came from all over the Tri State area to cast Protective Circles and conjure Capricious Djinni while donating, and competing for, an incredible community card pool. Our event was also run as a charity event in which all entry fees were donated to Women in Need, a non-profit that helps homeless mothers and their children with much needed shelter and supplies.
On top of the community prize pool, we also assembled a collection of wiccan talismans, candles, and protection runes for the top 4, as well as an Unlimited Icy Manipulator and a hand-curated selection of fringe cards of every color awarded to the Most Creative Deck, donated and awarded by resident NYC brewmaster, Raging River.
Most Creative Deck was chosen by selecting 3 potential winners beforehand, and awarding it to the deck which placed the highest out of those 3. This proved to be a great way to select a deck that was both unique and viable.
We played 5 rounds of Swiss and were left with one player who went undefeated when the dust had settled. Deck lists follow in order of placement.
GP New Jersey 2018 was a wonderful event filled with old and new pals, strange brews, and all for a good cause. With our combined entry fees and a significant donation from Sister Erik, we were able to raise $500 for Women in Need!
Thank you to everyone who came out to make our first event a memorable one. Our next tournament will not be long behind!
We are many wicks sharing a common tallow.
