The final day of Orccon was rather easy. I began the day by entering the Dominion
tournament. I ended up losing in the first round and so instead went to play in the Ingenious
tournament. I lost in the first round here as well (though I missed making the next round on a tie-breaker), and so had a lot of time to kill until my next game at 2pm.
I first went to the dealer's room where my five dealer bucks were burning a hole in my pocket. I ended up using them to buy a copy of Dominion: Seaside
. I ended up paying $35 (after a discount and the dealer bucks) which is still $8 more expensive than Cool Stuff
, but didn't require another $70+ in the order to get free shipping.
I still had tons of time to kill before my next event, so I sat down at the convention auction to kill some time. I ended up spending about $20 at the auction. I got several things:
$4 - Starcraft Tabletop RPG Box Set
$1 - Pool Position
(I've never even heard of it before)
$1 - Lot of 4 Sega Genesis games and 1 Sega CD game (all sports games)
$8 - Risk
(opened but unused)
$1 - Babylon 5 Component Game System Core Set + Psi Corp (mostly unpunched)
Someone who I was talking to offered to buy one of the Genesis games off of me for $1 and I happily took his buck. I consider the auction to have been relatively succesful. The B5CGS stuff is incredibly hard to find and a set that large in that condition is very rare.
I next went to the Shadow Hunters
tournament. After a false start, I once again managed to make it to the final table only to not place. I had incredibly bad luck on my draws, though. On my first turn in the first round, I went to the Church on my first turn and pulled the mirror, forcing me to reveal myself as a vampire. In the second round, I pulled the same card on the second turn. It is hard to win when revealed that early.
