After having 30+ excited gamers show up for the first demo of this new game we expected a good crowd at the tournament. We weren’t disappointed as 30 players showed up to test their skills in this new trial event. Because Julius Caesar is so new we had to open 7 new games just to have enough games to let all the players play. The first round began with 30 players. The first round saw (10) Pompey wins vs. (5) Caesar wins. New players, unfamiliar with the urgency Caesar faces in the first year, accounted for the Pompey edge. The second round saw (5) Caesar wins to (4) Pompey wins. The 3rd round saw (4) Caesar wins vs. (4) Pompey wins. I had to play Grant Dalgliesh my co-designer of Julius Caesar. It was a hard fought game but in the end Caesar ruled the day and sent me to the semi-finals. The final score was 9-5. Grant thought he had the game won but it dramatically came unglued for him in the final few card plays.
