はい! パイナップルです!

Seems like I have been neglecting my posting duties lately :P I have been getting back into my groove as a seiyuu fan, so please pardon the lack of posts (as always). I foresee more time being opened up for me in the future, so please hold on for all your PreMemo goodness. I do have a lot of posts I want to put up but always get distracted by new seiyuu releases  (#/。\#)

Anyway, to the main topic; The SG PreMemo League officially kicks off this Saturday with the Starter Deck (SD) Commemorative Release Tournament, Block A!

Why open the League with a SD Tourney, I hear you asking. Well, like I have mentioned on FB, it is to test players’ skill to work with what they have, instead of what they bought. It’s the most basic of decks out there and good training for making decisions when you don’t have an ideal hand. Of course some SDs are better than others, but other than that it’s mostly down to raw skill.

The ability to anticipate your Opponent’s moves is also a HUGE advantage the hardworking players are going to have going into the tournament. That’s because everyone is using a fixed structured deck, and you know exactly what are the key cards in his/her deck, what pumps there are, and even how many quantities of each card are included. Yes, this means that you can calculate out your Opponent’s strategies and moves.

To reduce the power disparity between the different series (as with any other card game, a power creep exists as more sets are released), the series will be split into 3 different Blocks; A, B and C. These Blocks indicate the different era and timelines of PreMemo history, and therefore are most alike to each other in terms of strength. To celebrate the start of our League, we will of course go with the first 5 series that laid the foundation for future successes!

It’s your choice who to bring to the ball~

Here are the details for the tournament;

I’ll be judging this Saturday again as with all other PreMemo tournaments, so I hope to see you guys there! As always, if you’re interested in taking a look around and perhaps learning how to play, do ask for a tutorial from any player before or after the tournament. I’m pretty sure they’ll direct you to me ^_^

Until next time, Good Night, and Good Luck.

はい! パイナップルです!

I’ve safely arrived back in Singapore! PreMemo FESTA 2011 WINTER was a blast, and I really enjoyed myself a lot. 2 days of immersing myself in the midst of Precious Memories fans is to be treasured, as Singapore doesn’t give me that option and they eluded me even when shopping around Akihabara, Ikebukuro and Nakano. That’s why I took part in the Gunslinger Tournament, a continuous series of PreMemo matches until you either don’t feel like playing anymore or the time limit is up. The following is the battle report, while the full event report will soon follow. Hope you have as much fun reading as I have playing! (●´∀`●)

In every booster pack and starter deck you purchase, you will receive a sticker featuring that series’ characters on it. These are actually points that you can use to exchange for campaign goods. Typically you will receive between 1-3 points per booster pack, and a guaranteed 6 points in each starter deck. Goods range from 20 points for a Specialized Deck Case featuring one of the characters from the series,  40 points for a Storage Box, to 60 points for a set of 60 card sleeves.

Official PreMemo goods

You can only use stickers from 1 series to exchange for goods from that series. For example, if you wanted to exchange for a Ore no Imouto Storage Box, all 40 points used must be from Ore no Imouto.

On that note, there is a far more attractive prize that you can exchange for, one that got me hooked onto the game and made me play ever since. For 300 painstakingly collected points, you can own a card Hand-Signed by the seiyuu of your favourite anime character.
