I'm Peter a long term player, started with the jyhad edition but stopped playing due to a lack of players after a few years.
About a month ago I reintroduced VTES at the pupeteers, a club playing in outpost Antwerp on thursdays.
Currently we have around 5 new players and one or two players that played years ago.
Every time I go I take some decks with me to show the game and 3 new players already got their own deck.


Hi Peter. Great news that you have embraces :)
I'm sure Bram will be able to join you in your thursday night sessions (he's gotcha here on this forum).

Hi,
I'm roel, from boutersem.
I started playing with my brother, more than 15 years ago.
When I lived in Gent, I could convince some new friends to play, one of them being a certain Dennis (D-). Bringing D to VTES is probably my most noteworthy performance in this small world :-o

I don't have time to play much anymore, but the game still attracts me and a few times per year I'm able to steal some time and join a casual game in Gent or Brussels, or even a tournament. See you on one of these occasions.

Hey

I'm Jonathan (Kortrijk), I've always been interested in VTES ever since I've heard of it, but only this monday was I able to obtain some cards. I also haven't played a single game so I'm quite unfamiliar with the rules, but I'm reading up and I've build some decks from decklists I found online.

I'd love to try it out and am wondering how games are organised in this community.

Hello Jonathan,

First of all, welcome to the forum and the community. It is always nice to see a new face. We usually play on fridays and try to alternate between the cities of Antwerp, Brussels and Ghent where we usually meet in the local outpost shop. Ofcourse carpooling is arranged when several people drive from one city to another. Usually we play about 3 games each evening since a game takes about 2 hours. The first game of the evening is usually the 'league game'. This is an ongoing event in which your winnings are recorded. At the end of the year, the best-performing player is considered the winner. We have created this to improved our skill and competitivity. After the league games, we often play more experimental decks or just something with a high fun-factor. Sometimes, one of us will bring along some sealed product they still have to do a draft.

My name is Tom. I am the prince of Ghent, which means it is my 'job' to help new players in my area and try to get some playing going around here. So if you have any questions or would like to get together for some explanation, just give a shout. Luckily, I'm not on my own and have the support of a great community of wonderfull people.

Currently, Dennis (our national coordinator) and Bram (our star player) are working with a collection for the community. New players like yourself are able to borrow decks to get a start with the game. More info can be found in the relevant topic: http://vtes.be/index.php/forum/general-discussion/1068-project-vtesinbelgium .

vekn: the 'official' VTES-website
secret library: a card, deck and trade browser

I hope to see you around soon!
and though We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are;
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.
~Tennyson~

Dag Tom

Ik verplaats me me de trein/metro, komt de carpool ook aan het station?
Is er deze vrijdag 23 jan iets te doen?
Ik kan deze vrijdag/weekend anders al eens naar gent komen zodat je me kan helpen met de spelregels te begrijpen.

Ik heb een collectie van een oud verzamelaar overgekocht, 9K kaarten, 50% van alle bestaande vtes kaarten.
Al de goede/dure kaarten heeft de verkoper wel uit de collectie gefilterd en apart verkocht.
