Peldor Joi season is upon us!  Starting Tuesday, December 1st and running through Sunday, January 3rd, the Peldor Gratitude Festival is a global celebration for the holidays; a time of giving, of kindness and compassion, and charity.   Many communities have embraced this event and scheduled their Peldor Joi Tournaments!  Every Sunday I will be posting an article, outlining all scheduled events, and doing a roundup of the previous week’s events!  We want your pictures, favorite moments, and your cans!  If you do not see an event scheduled in your area, there is still time!  Just contact myself with your events details to be included in the next week’s article.

As part of this years Peldor Season, the Continuing Committee is giving 31 days of premium membership access to every member starting December 1st.

Maggie Geppert(jadziadax8) is hosting this “Bend the Rules” tournament at her home.  ‘Entry fee’ of 3 canned goods, with extra cans needed to bend the rules each round. All donations to go to her local food bank.


‘This will be a virtual Chase the Can version of a Peldor Gratitude Festival tournament. The fee to participate is each player brings one non-perishable food item (for donation) for each round of the event. So for a three (3) round tournament, each player would bring three (3) items. After each game, the winner takes a "can" from his or her opponent and at the end of the tournament, each player that has the most cans claims a charitable victory! …. See the article link on the trekcc.org home page for details. If you bring in more than 3 cans of food, I will reduce the cost of the optional prize support by $1 for each extra can donated. So, if you want free prize support, just bring in three (3) extra cans of food!’

All cans will be collected at the end and donated to the Second Harvest Food Bank.

Critical Need Items: Powdered Infant Milk, Baby Cereal, Baby Foods, Canned fruits (no sugar), Canned Veggies (Low Salt/Sodium), Canned Beans, Fruit Juice, Spaghetti Sauces, Grains, Canned Meats, Diapers, Toiletries.

December 19, 2015

‘This will be a Bend the Rules Peldor Joi tournament! Players are able to bring as many cans as they like to donate, and can "spend" them during games for extra abilities. In addition, this will be a Face of the Enemy release event! Assuming tournament kits are available, one will be provided as additional prizes. But this will be the first opportunity to play with the new cards in Face of the Enemy! So come out and play with new cards, and support charity while you do it!’

Charity TBD.


December 20, 2015

Hosted by Michael Shea, this will be their 2nd annual holiday tournament, and first Peldor!  ‘Entry fee’ of $5 plus 3 non-perishable food donations.  All donations will be given to the Lost-n-found Charity for homeless LGBT youth.

‘There will also be a theme this year: A Time to Stand. Each player must bring two decks. One deck must contain one to three of the following "good" headquarters/affiliations: Bajoran, DS9/ES9, NA (non-Khan), Klingons, Relativity, Starfleet, TOS, TNG, Voyager. The other deck must contain one to three of the following "evil" headquarters/affiliations: Borg, Cardassian, Dominion, Ferengi, To Rule in Hell, Maquis, Romulans, Terok Nor. Each round, players will flip a coin to determine whether they are “good” or “evil” for the round, with each pairing to pit “good” against “evil.” Because there will be an element of chance, this will be an unsanctioned event.

Finally, because this will be unsanctioned event, we will be playing with “Bend the Rules” conditions. In addition to the donation required as part of the fee, you may bring extra cans/shelf-stable food items to bend the rules during your games.

Everyone playing in this tournament will win, in addition to whatever achievements your deck(s) are eligible for, two TrekCC achievements: “Peldor Joi” and “Bend the Rules.” Plus, in addition to standard prize support and holiday prize support, the winner and one random player will also receive a limited edition “Peldor Joi” button. Please register so that I can obtain the proper amount of holiday prize support. Merry Christmas! Happy Hanukah! Joyous Kwanza! Peldor Joi!’


Brian Sykes (Armus) is TD of this Peldor Joi Chase the Can event. Please bring 3 cans of food (soup, etc. ) - Director will provide extras if needed. Winner of each game takes a can from opponent. Person with most cans gets special prize!

'If you're in the DC/MD/VA area and are looking for a fun way to celebrate the season, come on out on 12/20 and may the best can win!'

'This year's gig will take place o Saturday 1/2/16, and in honor of it being our tenth year, we will be returning to where it all began by hosting this event at Outpost 2000 & Beyond in Coon Rapids. As usual, registration will start at 11:30 a.m. and following pod assignments we will begin drafting at high noon. Each entrant will be given a randomly assigned starter deck and several randomly assigned packs to draft from, with no restrictions on who can be played to the HQ(s). The tournament entrance fee is $20, however it is a recommended donation, not a hard requirement, so anything that can be spared will gladly be accepted. All proceeds from entrance fees and end of day auction sales will once again benefit In the Spirit Prison Ministries, as we once again attempt to raise enough money to sponsor a family in the Philippines for an entire year over the course of one day of gaming amongst friends.

Lastly but not leastly, in tandem with the Continuing Committee's Peldor Joi celebration, please consider bringing a food shelf donation to support the Twin Cities area Second Harvest Heartland charities. For this event only, canned goods can be treated as currency for the above mentioned "pick your poison" pairings, and will also be considered for preference regarding the "To Be the Man... You Gotta Beat The Man" challenge(s). So, with that all said, bring your wallet, your canned goods, and your A-Game as we once again ring in the New Year for charity in a few short weeks!'
