Starter Kit Corner
The Noreaster is also encouraging starter kit attendees for some open, ie; non-tournament gaming versus other starter kit players. We will not only be matching starter kit players against each other at the event, but can also match people via email prior to the event. In this way players will know who their first game will be against and in what scenario. If you would be interested in this service please contact Carl Nogueira at Chnogueira@aol.com.
