Last weekend I traveled down with two of my friends to Everett, Washington to compete in the Cubic Zirconia Cup. This tournament was being ran by Geeky Villain, an amazing store with fantastic support for FFTCG. The tournament was very intriguing as it was simulating the Top 32 Draft format that some Crystal Cups are using this year (specifically the final 3 in North America this year).
Although the Crystal Cup I am attending (Portland) will not have draft. I thought this would be an excellent chance to improve at a format I have very limited (pun intended) experience at. FFTCG is the first TCG I have ever played competitively, and previous to this I had competed in maybe 3 drafts and a few cubes. My intent for this article is to talk about the event, how I played, and highlight some things I learned about draft. Enjoy!
P.S. I am writing this on a bus filled with students as I head off to chaperone a school trip. I apologize for any inconsistencies.
