Where Everybody Knows Your Name

by Jeremy Benedict

2014 GenCon Cool Tournament Theme Winner - The deck celebrates the Paramount television series near and dear to all of us, and by that I mean Cheers. Apart from some "stand-ins" for major characters for story elements, every personnel in the deck (and four verbs) feature actors and actresses that made appearances on Cheers in addition to on a Star Trek series. The deck is not designed to complete missions, only be able to play all the personnel in the deck to appropriate facilities and to get all of those personnel to Quark's Bar. Treaties that allow all the various affiliations to cooperate are included so that all ships and personnel can get together in one place.

Tournament Record:

  • The "Cool" Tournament - Worlds Side Event (2014-08-17): 9th place

The following cards in this deck have received errata since it was last played in a tournament:

  • Temporal Vortex (2017-04-03) - Ref icon not needed due to other errata; removing it leaves space for other time travel cards.
  • Rishon Uxbridge (2016-12-24) - Minor rewording for clarity, and prevented a theoretical interaction where Kevin Uxbridge could nullify the Rishon personnel card.
  • Rishon Uxbridge (2016-12-23) - No longer grants Kevin an ability to discard the Rishon personnel.

Draw Deck Strategy

As many elements of Cheers stories as possible were wrapped in to the gameplay of the deck. Once Sam [Lavelle] or a waiter/waitress got to the bar I'd state each turn that they were "serving the customers". Other plot points and specific stories included: Sam hitting on Diane (Aluura), Carla (Kerla) antagonizing Norm (Morn) and Cliff (Tahglio), Fraiser (Morgan Bateson) getting on a plane (ship) and then running off of it next turn, Rebecca (Saavik) buying her own ship while trying to wait to get to the bar, and Sam leaving the bar to "sail away" on a ship and then come home again. If iknew that I was coming up on my last turn, I had Norm download Gold-Pressed Latinum to pay off his bar tab, all the patrons leave for the Klingon Restaurant, leaving Sam to announce the bar was closed.

Dilemma Pile Strategy

Didn't attempt any missions, but the dilemmas were themed to match specific episodes or typical bar behavior: Love Interests, Do You Smell Something Burning (Norm's favorite restaurant burning down), Thought Fire (Rebecca burns the bar down), Dial-Up (Norm's wife always calling), and Ooby Dooby (when the bar was pranked and the juke box kept playing loud music non-stop), along with others.
