Guardian Cup Lite 8.5 Photog Journal

Welcome one and all! Today is the latest in the series of Guardian Cup’s, this time a 3 round RTT, held at Guardian Games in Portland, OR. Portland’s grandest game store! With 8000+ square feet of space this store has plenty to offer the local populace and today we descend upon it for a little tournament to hopefully score some ITC points.

Myself, Mr. More Tanks and BigTal (all Team0Comp members) are co-judging this smaller tournament so we all get to play and have a level of transparency and accountability in rules calls. Since I’ve only had to make 4-5 total rules calls in all of my time running the Guardian Cup’s, I’m not to worried. We tried this last time and it went off without a hitch.

In the end, Baxter Seguin took top general, Karl Payne took best overall, Ryan Fredin took best sports, and Jessica Edgren took favorite army with her sparkly pink princess marines. Looked like everybody had a good time overall and the event went of rather well.
