Hi Roger!

I'm thinking of going to Comics and More in Plymouth Meeting tomorrow, but I can't get there until closer to 2:30-3. I'll bring the cube along, though.

That might be too far and a bit too late for me. Anyone available a little closer to Philly from 11am to 6pm?

Ah, this month is wacky, so that's the only time I have for a little while. I will be at C&M later this afternoon if anyone is planning on going.

The other cuber on this forum is James (intrinsic). He lives in the city, and might be able to meet up more easily. You can send him a pm, or just post here and he'll see it at some point.

What, I don't count?

I live up in Mt. Airy near Dan, but have a more flexible schedule this month. I hope to organize something for this weekend, even if I can't make a prerelease. I have kids, so later in the evening can work for me most any day, but rarely earlier than that.

Dan, would Saturday after the prerelease work for you? How long do those things last, anyway?

Ack, sorry Tom! You were a recent addition to the forum! I'm so used to James and I being the only cubers on this forum.

I'll add that not only is Tom a cuber, but he has one of the coolest cubes ever. I like your discount cube as well.

This weekend is unfortunately too full for me at the moment. I don't even know if I'll be able to prerelease, as I have too many gigs at just the wrong time. I might have to wait until after September finishes before I can meet up again.

Saturday i am trying to make the sealed at Redcap's Corner at 1pm, and ill likely mill around after with my cube in tow. IF im there (sadly my plans often fall thru, it sucks), im the 6'4" guy with glasses and a mohawk, you really cant miss me.

Outside of this weekend, im down to get together weeknights and cube as well. Im typically free from 6pm on and there are several local places in south philly near me we can get together and cube.

I posted on mtgsalvation already too.

I would be down with driving to MT Airy but a weekend day would work out better for me. I have kids and the weeknights are tough. I couldn't play this Saturday but I could potentially play this Sunday. Future weekends could work for me too. I also like hanging out in a more casual environment like someone's house vs a store. But of course I will take what I can get!

I dont really post on mtg salvation, although i read it. Bunch of stuffy pricks over there.
With enough notice i can do weekend days easy enough, and while im not quick to invite randoms into my home im not against the idea once we meet and play a few times.

Lets throw out a date beyond this weekend and see who can gather for it and what location is best for all involved...

I am not much of a poster either. As for meeting and playing I will check my calendar and get back to you guys with some dates that I am available. I completely understand your hesitance to invite randoms to your house. I don't mind meeting at a store as long as we don't use my cube at first. It is essentially all of the cards that I have remaining and I don't want to lose any of them. Like most magic players I have had some of my stuff ripped off in the past.

One nice thing about having a budget cube is that I don't worry too much about letting people play with it.

I'd be happy to meet up any evening, this week or next, either at my place or somewhere else. I don't know the area well, though, so someone else would have to suggest a spot.

Intrinsic, does the 6'4" include the mohawk?

haha, the 6'4" is before the hair goes up.

I have the same hesitance to take my cube public and play with people i do not know. Although my cube is "non-rare" its almost completely foiled and still quite valuable.

Might i suggest this then. We can meet up at a store and draft or winston or rochester or winchester cubes 1v1. That way, we could meet, chat a bit, and safely cube without need of randoms to worry about taking our things.

Sounds good. Are there any stores you'd recommend that are open late enough to play, if I can't arrive before 8 p.m.? Do folks here ever play in bars or cafes? (The Bay Area was geeky enough that I saw it there quite a bit...)

I've never played a nonrare cube, and am quite interested in trying it. I tried a fake draft at tappedout.net once of one, and I had absolutely no idea how to evaluate the cards.

When I began my cube, I realized that a bad rare cube could be cheaper than a good nonrare cube. It worked great, until I found I didn't have the discipline to stay in my budget.

Here is a link to my cube on tapped out
http://tappedout.net/mtg-cube-drafts/james-intrinsics-no-rare-cube/

As far as anything open late...
Its kind of funny but there is a dunkin donuts near me that is open 24 hours and doesnt mind magic players in it.
Ive played there before when the comic book store down the street was ready to close and my friend and i were not done playing.

Stormy, i just noticed your mention of character references available on your earlier post. LOL

Im pretty sure im available 1 of the 2 days next weekend. Lets see who else would be willing to meet in Philly and which days would work best for those interested. Anyone else?

I am tentative yes. I have a bunch of outdoor work to do on Saturday and if it doesn't rain I should be able to get it done then so I can play on Sunday. I see this place is open from noon to 9pm is that accurate? If so when would you want to play? I am a bit of an early bird but can be flexible.

Hey, glad we found the time and got to meet up.
We both drafted a new way for the first time, and you proved to be a much better magic player than i... which isnt that difficult. Laughing

Let me know when you have the time again and we will get a few more people together.

Hey James, I had a great time. I enjoyed the winchester draft too. I did some additional reading up on it and I see that another method is to do it face up. I think that would be interesting too as you see all of the cards that your opponent is picking. Either way I'd love to play again soon and with more people in your extended group as well.
