Most of the Magic videos we make on “Milo: The Gathering” have to do with Cube. Cube is one of the most skill-testing, fun, limited environments available. There is nothing my playgroup loves more than drafting, but the drawback of Cube is that you don’t actually get to open real packs when you’re drafting. Busting boosters is a blast and I hate missing out on good times.
Chris’ Number 7: 6 Month Long Star Trek: Attack Wing Tournament
In the early part of the year, I started playing Star Trek: Attack Wing. If you don’t know, it’s a miniatures game based in the Star Trek universe that uses the same rules as X-Wing: Miniatures Game. I haven’t put up a review of either game yet, but suffice it to say that it inspired me to seek out new tournaments and hobby locations and boldly go where I hadn’t gone before.
On August 17TH, I played the biggest Magic: The Gathering Constructed tournament of my life and it was only a measly 280 players. However, these were the best players Canada had to offer. The likes of Alexander Hayne, Jacob Wilson, Pascal Maynard and Lucas Siow were in attendance. I was outmatched from the get-go, but this was the first Canadian World Magic Cup Qualifier of the year and everyone wanted a chance to win a spot on Team Canada 2014.
