Bands with other Torontonians

I’m tapping my Helm of Chatzuk to band with some other locals to play the best kind of Magic!

In continuing to try and grow the Toronto Old School scene, I’m publicly announcing that 5 November, 2018, around 8:30pm, some of us will be meeting up at Bar With No Name, located at 1651 Bloor Street West in Toronto. If you have questions, the easiest way to get at me is on twitter as @jasonious.

I’m hoping there’s enough space available for us to take over a few tables and play some games. I’d love to discuss other locations with people who are interested, as BWNN isn’t huge, and with it being cold and wet out, their patio is closed.

Generally speaking, we’ve been playing Eternal Central rules (reprints allowed, 4 Strips, etc) but are open to other formats. In the interest of growing the community, if you are interested at all but your deck doesn’t meet these rules, show up anyhow! Playing games is more important than dogmatic adherence to “rules” in a completely unsanctioned, house rules type of format like Old School.

  1. It would be great if you can make it out. I want to start having the conversations about what days work best for people, but first we need to establish what our numbers are looking like.

  2. We’d love to have you Eric, and I’m sure you can show off your lovelies from EW, right? 🙂

    I had forgotten that EW is this weekend, but, like I said, we are wanting to do these regularly, so even if you can’t make this one, there’ll be more, and I’ll keep the site updated w/ them. But really, you should come Monday.

    1. I’m personally not a fan of proxies for myself, but if you wanna play them, I got no beef with that. Please make sure they are actual proxies and not just a Plains Sharpied “Black Lotus” though 🙂

      I’m more into playing than caring about the specifics. In my mind, once the Old School scene gets a bit more established, then we can talk about things like proxies, 4 Strip vs 1 Strip, Swedish vs EC vs Atlantic B&R, 94/95, etc. Let’s just get some games in, build some friendships, and go from there.
