The 2024 MPGCO will be held in Fultondale Alabama on Friday, Saturday and Sunday March 1st, 2nd and 3d. We will be playing at the Comfort Suites 1325 Old Walker Chaple Road Fultondale,Al 35068. 205.259.2160 AL222@staychoice.com
If you want to book your room the total tax and all per night will be $135 (sorry for the higher rate, the tax in Fultondale is higher for some reason. I am looking into it!) and is under Continuing Committee. There is no other charge to play for any of the tournaments!
The format will be the same as last year in Valdosta: Friday- Pick One Save Two, dilemma draft( open to the first 10 who sign up!)
Saturday- standard format tourney early and Hall of Fame tourney later.
Sunday- Cardassian vs. Cardassian , everyone has to play with a Cardassian homeworld!
I hope you will make plans to join us in Fultondale as we honor our friend Marc and gather to sling some cardboard with friends! Qaplah! :cheersL:

Greetings!
The tournaments are all posted so you may start registering at any time! If you have any questions or comments feel free to IM me or call and I will do my best to answer. To try and help a little more, if you are planning to attend and are flying in to Birmingham (Shuttlesworth International) we will be glad to pick you up from and take you back to the airport to try and help save you some money. Just let me know day and time and we will coordinate with you. I hope you are preparing to join us for a weekend of 2E card play!! Look forward to seeing you soon! Mike 205.542.2121

We are a month out from the Marc Phillips Greater Cardassian Open!! I hope you are making plans to attend at least one if not all of the great events. A couple of newish things to consider:
1)The Friday event Pick One, Save Two dilemma draft is open to a max of 10 players because of number of decks available and the time it takes to draft. It looks to be full be I and my group will be pulling out to make room for people coming to play. Keep checking back and grab a spot if one is available. My group will be there so if you make it but cannot get in the draft, games and 2E fun can still be had!
2) There is a 1E tournament that will run Saturday evening at the same time as the HoF tournament if any 1E players wish to join us!
Also, the brand new HoF cards that get inducted this year will be in effect for our HoF tournament! Keep tabs on the voting so you do not have to do any last minute switching!!
3) The Cardassian vs. Cardassian tournament on Sunday has the requirement of having to use Hard Scrabble World as your only [H]!! It will also start at 9:00am so we can finish and get people on the road to food and home.
Come join us in Fultondale for a weekend of Trek !! :cheersL:

Are you asking if you can do both at the same time?!

Michael I do not know exactly how to answer that. I honestly do not care if you were in both. My biggest concern is for each of your opponents and their game experience and their time. I know you and know you would do all in your power to make it work but you finishing a turn in one game while an opponent in another, different game sat for even a few seconds waiting on your return to their game seems like it would be discourtesy to them and the game they were in. The “legality” of your request is above my knowledge and pay grade. If no one from the CC “ruled” one way or another, I think I would put it to the players in attendance on Saturday. I love the enthusiasm but just am not sure. :shrug:

Good day! We are about two weeks out from the 2024 Marc Phillips Greater Cardassian Open being held in lovely Fultondale, Alabama this year. If you are reserving a room at the Comfort Suites where we are playing please do so quickly! Booking rooms there is a little more pricey than I had wanted or expected but each room reserved helps with the cost of the meeting room where we will be playing. Even if you are just in for one night (Friday or Saturday) staying where we are playing really helps! If you have any questions or I can help please call! Thank you kindly! 205.542.2121

Hey, so, what's the story with 2e HoF and 1e Modern happening at the same time?

I see a bunch of players registered for both... are we trying some multi-game simultaneous nonsense?
