At the Gencon tournaments we were joking about the no scouting rule being rather silly. Several of us were flashing cards at each other and saying "don't scout me", stuff like that.
For my part, I'm always happy to post my decks and answer any questions someone may have about how it works or why I built it that way, and I hope that more people adopt a similar stance.
I understand secrecy when big money is on the line like in the top Magic tournaments, but for Call of Cthulhu the community benefits of sharing knowledge I think outweigh any small lasting competitive advantage. Once the tournament is over, the secrecy should be over too.
I agree. IF you don't want people knowing what you are running or what strategies you are going to use during the tournament you should have some facility for that. When the tournament is over I'm all about sharing. The sole exception would be is if I'm in another tournament with the same deck before a new AP comes out.
a bit off topic but I'm sorta new in Munich so I don't know much about the game/hobby stores in Munich.
At which game store was the tournament held (I'm guessing Funtainment). Does it have a good selection of FFG products?
