GenCon: Marvel Legendary Deck Building Championships

Calvin Patten, a participant in the Marvel Legendary Deck Building Championships at GenCon earlier this year, gives us an inside look at the event as he documents it from start to finish.

There was only one Legendary event at GenCon this year and 1st place would take home an Iron Man trophy along with a $10,000 grand prize!

“I Woke up and started the day just like any other big event day. Planned ahead, knowing that the tournament starts at 10:00 am. After breakfast I made my way back to the room to get a little prep work withthe Villains set. So many things to take into account for the tournament. I have had my share of bigger events. Last year I had the chance to play in both of the Gen Cons 5K tournaments. I was able to make the top 10 the first one and top 25 the second one. This event is a little different as it is only (1) event and it is for $10,000. While coming in the top 5 would be great, I was really just looking to have fun as that much prize money brought out some serious gamers.”
