California State Tournament Summary

We had most of the people from our playgroup gather for the California State Redemption tournament that met on June 25th and 26th and I would like to share my experience during the tournament and the impact the new set had.

Iowa State Tournament Summary – Part 1

Approximately 20 people gathered for the Iowa State Redemption tournament on June 9th and 10th. I’d like to share a little bit about that experience with you and talk about the “BoM” deck that took 1st and 2nd in T1-2P.

The Players

The crowd consisted of mostly local players with a handful of veterans who traveled to join us. Both Pat (h20tor on the forum) and Mitch (MitchRobStew) made the drive from other parts of Iowa. Joining us from the great state of Minnesota were Jayden (KoalaKing), John (Red Dragon Thorn) and Justin (The Guardian).

December 2015 Tournament Report

This week’s article will be rather brief, at least compared to what’s normal for me. Last Saturday we had a District Redemption tournament in our area. I’d like to take a moment to share with you a summary of that event.

T1 Meta 2015-2016 Season

When preparing to attend a Redemption tournament, it’s good to have an idea of what cards and deck types you might go up against.

Lets take a look at what we expect in the current meta in Type 1.

Hosting a Redemption Play Group

One of the things I’d like to see here at Land of Redemption are resources for play group leaders and aspiring play group leaders. We have some very successful play group pleaders in this game. I’ve reached out to a few of them and some are willing to share insights with us, when their schedule allows. The type of person who hosts a play group is typically someone who gives of themselves. Those type of people usually have a pretty full schedule. In the meantime, I’m going to share a few things I’ve learned as a play group leader, mostly by trial and error.

Redemption National Tournament

This year the Redemption National Tournament is taking place at Meridian Baptist Church in Knoxville, TN from Thursday, July 30 to Saturday, August 1st. Unlike some other games, you don’t need to qualify to participate, it’s open to all players of any age!

If you’ve never attended a Redemption tournament, let me assure you, it’s probably unlike any competitive event you’ve participated in. The environment is casual, with the primary focus being on fun and fellowship. It’s a gathering of old friends and new ones, sharing their love of this exciting game that’s based on God’s word.
