1e is warp speed format so 30 minute rounds .... The 2e guys want standard format so they need longer.

It sure does seem strange though

My leave is all booked up too, which is pretty easy because most of my work week is Monday/Tuesday.

Nine hours of 1E awaits! :D

So I want to make extra sure: will The Maquis be legal for Australian Continentals? The set releases 27th June, the event is on 4th July. I would think it would be legal, but the release kit solicit makes me wonder:

"You can schedule your The Maquis release event any time after Friday, July 4 - one week after it's release!"


Hopefully 1E Continentals isn't decided by whoever uncovers a new broken deck :cross:

Let's just say that it's July 4 in America so 1E will be about 3-4 rounds in when it becomes legal.

That works. I'll play 3 rounds of [1E-DS9] [Fed], after which point they'll all suddenly become terrorists.
