Let me start by saying, I'm not a big fan of Wolverine. I was back in 6th & 7th grade, when I first discovered comics, but since then he's become the most played-out, least interesting character in the entire realm of comics...so, I'm glad to see the end of Wolverine month at Little Shop.
Yesterday's tournament was a sealed deck, but youhad to bring a Wolverine to put on your team. The boosters we were using were (wait for it...) Hypertime! They gave us 3 HT boosters for $10,...
On Saturday, I got up WAY too early for a Saturday morning...but I wanted to attend the Fantastic Forces Pre-release & so it was a necessary evil!
I went to the FF tournament at All Things Fun! in West Berlin, NJ & had a great time. There were ~45 players there for phase 1 of the tournament. While I didn't meet them all, I met some cool new folks (esp. Steve, who was playing not just in his first tournament, but his very first actual game of Heroclix!) and some old friends,...
All month at Little Shop, in Scotch Plains, NJ it is "Wolverine Month"! All teams must have Wolverine as a member, but any version will do.

E Batman (Legacy)
LE Arthur Curry
E Green Lantern (Hal, with Trick Shot) <B>Most popular...
I thought today's tournament was a sealed DC 300, but it was not. It was a <I>constructed</I> DC 300. I was about to just take off, as I hadn't brought enough with me to build a team, but there were a new judge & an old friend there already, so I decided to buy the boosters I had planed to buy anyway, and see what I could cobble together on short notice. I ended up doing much better than I imagined I really could!
