Chairman's Challenge Winners!

by Charlie Plaine, Chairman

20th April 2011

In November 2010, we hosted a pair of global Chairman's Challenge events. For First Edition, we challenged players to go Back to the PAQ and play in a tournament using only pre-First Contact cards in their decks. At the same time, we challenged Second Edition players with Welcome to the Academy, limiting their decks to just Common, Starter and Virtual rarity cards.

Well, fifty-five (55) players took us up on the challenges. Unfortunately, we were all side-tracked by expansion releases and organized play changes, and we never made good on our promises of prizes. Well... better late than never, I suppose, and we're happy to finally announce the winners of our prize packs for Chairman's Challenge VII and Chairman's Challenge VIII. In fact, we've updated the prize kits to make them a little better, since we've made you wait so long!

A total of twenty (20) randomly selected players that participated in any of these Chairman's Challenge events from the end of October through the beginning of December, and entered their deck lists (ten for 1E, ten for 2E) were selected to win these prize packs:
