Introduction
The 2015-2016 T2E Tough Enough League playoffs began with a First & Second Edition double feature on a frigid morning at Fantasy Flight Games Event Center. With most of the participants chasing bonus points, this showcase of our favorite B-side designs led to one of the most evenly matched fields I can remember.

Round 1StarfleetJustin KaufmanFW (+25)View opponent's Report
Crimson was trying out Damaged Starfleet, and gave my Chula pile fits as Archer and Phlox both made appearances early. Eventually killing the duo, I corralled him at Investigate Anachronism shortly before powering through Intercept Renegade courtesy of The Central Command to win a nail biter at the wire. FW 100-75.

Round 2BorgBarry WindschitlFW (+15)View opponent's Report
The Genius was working Borg Assimilation, but was starved for new recruits as I sat tight at Cardassia Prime until I had 20 personnel in play. Losing a handful to assimilation and another group to the ALC bomb, I had just enough fuel left in the tank to shrug off an Intimidation in space to notch the victory. FW 100-85.

Round 3RelativityJeremy BenedictTT (0)View opponent's Report
The Razor was utilizing Relativity, and chopped down my dilemma pile from the onset as he attempted 4 different missions in rapid succession. Out of interrupt ammo for Intercept Renegade and losing ground to Hindrance, I fired my last bullet in the form of Chula: Trickery to earn a hard fought tie as time expired. TT 65-65.

Closing Thoughts
Our first tournament of the day was a wild ride in which all six of the matches turned on a clutch decision here or a lucky draw there. In an environment where the unconventional is often unsurprising, you certainly have to be on your toes when playing in The Land of 10,000 Champions.
