Archenemy vs Archenemy

Had some spare time this evening, so me and my girlfriend decided to play one one on one Archenemy. We played in the release for it, and got the other two packs that we didn't get at the release, and this was the first time for us to play some of the other decks. 

She opted for the Dragon deck that I played at the release (Its really fun), and I went for the Zombie deck as that looked fun that neither of us had played. All the Scheme cards we own were in one pile so she went through them and took out duplicates so we'd only have singletons of each scheme card while we played. As it was one on one, we shared the scheme deck and took one each every turn. 

We both started on 20 life, and agreed that the first player would still draw a scheme, but not a card for the first turn.

Fun with M11 Two Headed Giant

After a nice sleep in, me and Liz travelled into London for the M11 pre-release yesterday. As we had slept in a fair bit, we arrived in time for the Two Headed Giant, but no other events. Caught up with some people there while waiting for the event to start. The room had emptied a bit but that may have been because we arrived at about 4ish.

Having recently read about a slightly different way of doing sealed, and having some ROE packs laying around, I thought I'd give it a go with a friend of mine after a lecture yesterday. The two main differences between the mini-sealed and normal sealed is that mini-sealed uses 4 packs instead of 5 or 6, and has a minimum deck size of 30 instead of the usual 40. OK, I think they're both the differences.  I think the rational behind the 30 card limit is that constructed decks are 60 card minimum, and 30 is half that. I can't seem to find the article I read about it, but Paul (who I did the mini-sealed with) knew what I was talking about so at least I didn't completely dream it up.
