I'd be interested I guess. Anyone else planning to go?

2hr shikansen or 5 hr bus ride...

can someone better at japanese find the prices for both?

i'm probably down if i can split a hotel with someone

also i can't read anything about the trials for the 3rd round bye maybe we could hit one?

I found two trials at locations that I can vouch for from past experience:

August 16th in Itabashi



August 1st in Yokohama



Additional events may be in reach and more favorable depending on where people live I guess (e.g. Chiba-shi). The events are all Sealed Deck tournaments, possibly (or rather, probably) with a Draft T8.

IIRC I should still have a rating-bye... but I think I'll try and go to one or both of the above mentioned anyway.

Hey Vaso, are we gonna see you at Shakey's sometime?

ALso, do you have to go to a trial first to go to a GP, or is it just an extra chance to get a bye?

A trial is just a chance to win 3 byes. Any Grand Prix is always an open tournament, there's usually even players there getting their very first DCI number...

As for Shakey's... I'm poorer than dirt so the 1.5k or something it costs me to do it actually hurt. Yeah, I suck. I'll try to get it in sometime, if we have an earlier meeting time someday I can come directly from class, that saves me a bunch.

Hey Vaso, I'm sorry to hear that. I have been there, and know what poorer than dirt feels like. Let us know if there's something we can do to make gaming easier. Plus, I'm always happy to lend decks!

As for an earlier time, we started at 5pm last week - is that early enough or would other arrangements be preferable? Just give the word!

Don't worry about it, I'll see what I can do. What about this week by the way? I may be in town anyway earlier since it's no classes this week; but with the whole country gone for summer vacation, is there even going to be a Shakey's this Wednesday?

Hey all,

Just thought I'd mention that I'll be making the looong trip from Mito. I was going to be heading up with a friend, but money worries have turned it into a hitori de adventure. So, I'd be very appreciative of acknowledgement that there'll be a few other gaijin around to chat with. I'll be heading up on an overnight bus from Ikebukuro on Friday.

Hope to see a few of you there!

J

Financial restrictions definitely killed this for me. Oh how I wish for the days of GP/Worlds Yokohama...
