Bochum VtES League 2010: September 3rd

Here are the decks of the Bochum VtES League 2010 from the meeting on September 3rd, 2010 (prey is from left to right, from top to bottom):

Left: Michael choose a copy of the Mono-Potence Prince deck from the State of Play blog.

Right: Hardy played his now well-known Toreador antitribu Breed & Boon deck, that has some nifty Black Hand tech incorporated.

Left: Ralf played his proven Imbued Chainsaw Massacre deck.

Right: Didi played a rather new deck, a vote deck based on actually four disciplines, namely Obfuscate, Celerity, Fortitude and Presence.

Game Summary: This was one of the quicker games in the Bochum VtES League. Although Ralf managed to influence his Imbued quite fast, Hardy was moving his vampires to the controlled region even faster (with the addition of the occasional Embrace). This made Ralf play rather defensively which gave in turn his prey, Didi, time to built-up. So Didi moved three rather big cap vampires (Ayo Igoli, Dmitra & Falhu Shibaba) to the region ready, and with vote lock at the table and some multi-action via Forced Marched, he dominated the table easily. Michael's dilemma was that he played a mono-Potence Prince deck, but neither drew enough rush actions nor enough Second Tradition: Domain to threaten his prey or predator. Long story, short ending: Hardy ousted me with a tiny bit of help of Didi, which in turn ousted Michael and Hardy in rather quick succession after 73 minutes into the game.
  • Fun Fact of the Game: Playing a second turn "Blood Trade" when your predator's playing a Breed & Boon deck.
  • Un-Fun Fact of the Game: Your predator uses the same "Blood Trade" to play "Watchtower: Wolves Feed" a few turns later.

Blood Trade doesn't stop Consanguineous Boon from being played.

Ohhh, you're right, I've checked the reference. Then we played/used "Blood Trade" wrong all the way .. :(

I think, this will result in my next "Did you know .." post!

Isn't Didi's deck illegal? Falhu is group 3 and Dmitra is group 5.

That's correct, too. Seems to be the evening of playing VtES not correctly ..
