LONG ISLAND CUP 3.0
LONG ISLAND CUP 3.0 2021 Tournament event - held in the City of Aarhus and for the first time at "Kløverhytten" venue. An event where competitive old school magic is played, but in a very casual atmosphere with fun, drinking and people staying overnight.
Hørhavevej 55D, 8270 Højbjerg
"Kløverhytten" event location, two floors with room for up to 80 players and beds for 30 people.
The Long Island Cup 3.0 was a big event conducted with around 60 players playing 7 rounds of Swiss and then Top 8 finals. The number of players makes it extremely competitive to get into the desirable top 8 standings. The final top 8 standings showed a very diverse field of decks and with a quite different meta than we normally see in the monthly Tron Wars.

Chaos Orb Challenge:
We have been so lucky to be granted the permission to borrow the legendary "Chaos Orb Challenge" concept to be held at the event as well. The concept has been developed by the US oldschool MTG group "Lord of the Pits". The concept was managed by Esben Bækkelund at the event.
The rules are simple but unforgiving:
- Goal is to hit 50 Chaos Orb flips
- Bet "X" number of shots - this will buy you addtional flips equal to X.
- Flip the Chaos Orb 50 + X times at a target according to the normal rules.
- Count the number of hits and check if you reached 50 !
- Drink the number of shots you bet :-)
Sucessfully completion of the challenge grants you the "Bad Ass" LIC Chaos Orb patch for the filthy few!
Below are pictures from the event.
A big thanks from the Long Island Crew team and see you next year!
