Released in 2001, The Voyager expansion was designed to be a standalone game. The starter decks were designed to be playable out of the box in Warp Speed format, or combined with booster packs for a fully immersive 1e Constructed experience.
To celebrate this milestone in the game, the October event will be the Warp Speed format introduced by Decipher 19 years ago. Each Player will receive one Voyager Starter and 4 Voyager Boosters. Warp speed rules apply: Deck paramaters are: Exactly 3 missions, Max 10 seed cards, and Minimum 20 Draw Deck cards. All affiliations are compatible, 2 card plays per turn, even up to 7 cards at the end of each turn, first to solve space and planet wins.
Also, like EPP Warp speed, you can seed one card at your outpost (it counts against your 10 limit), but UNLIKE EPP Warp Speed, there's no built-in outposts, so players will have to choose between offense in the form of a starting card, or defense in the form of an extra dilemma.
Additionally, there is NO BAN LIST! You pull it, you can play it. All current errata apply, because that's what's in Lackey, but if you can make Delta Quadrant Spatial Scission work in Warp Speed, more power to you!
(Note The Big Picture doesn't help, because victory isn't conditioned on points, just the mission types that TBP already requires).
I've heard that this is a very popular event, and I'm hoping we get some turnout. We kick off NEXT Friday (October 2nd, 2020) with initial card pools and pairings, so I would encourage anyone who's thinking of joining to go ahead and pre-register so we can make sure you get your stuff. We're currently at 8 as of this writing, so that's currently 3 rounds, but if we get any more then we'll go to 4 rounds (or 5 if we crack 16... the sky's the limit!)
Need any more reason to sign up? Ok, here's one more incentive: Including this event there are 3 RTT4 events left on the Calendar, so if you want any chance of qualifying for the RTT4 foil, you need to log at least 3 events, so if you don't get in now, it's not gonna happen. What are you waiting for?
Can we set the attendance record for the year with this classic gig? We'll all find out in a week. Stay Tuned!!!
