Gathering in the Desert 2010: Friday Update

Gathering in the Desert 2010 has officially kicked off last nigh at Empire Games in Mesa Arizona.  Brent from Chicago was running a fun little tournament called March to Mount Doom Madness Tournament when arrived.  The March to Mount Doom tournament will feature a unique “bracket-style” pairing system and players will play their way trough a single elimination tournament during the course of the evening. This event is being offered as a “free” add-on event for the Gathering in the Desert tournament.  Brent also had awards for Best Overall and Best Theme for the event.  The award for Best Overall went to a fellow named Kyle, and Best Theme went to John P.  It was a nice way to relax and have some playing games before Saturday and Sunday's events take place.  Here a re a few shots of the event from last night (not too many).  I plan on having more pictures of today and tomorrow's festivities.
