Danny Frahm reigned supreme at the League of Extraordinary Gamers (LXG) Legends of Summer Viewpoint tournament on the weekend of 20-21 February but he wasn't the only LXG member to win that weekend.
LXG hosted a Legends warm-up tournament on 17 January to introduce the club to the Viewpoint tournament scene. Alexander Done owned everyone on the day by winning all of his games.
Alexander then joined Danny and other gamers for the main event at the LXG Legends of Summer tournament on 20-21 February. After three tight rounds, Danny managed to sit atop the tournament pile. Along with automatic entry into the Viewpoint World Championships, Danny will also receive a 3D-eye Hologram trophy from LXG. A second Legends tournament was held the next day, which saw Darren Catton win his first tournament. Well done Alexander, Danny and Darren!
Danny who is a big fan of Eurogames said of Viewpoint, “I think the real strategic beauty of this game really comes from the deceptive value of cards. I really enjoy this level of complexity as it rewards those people whom can work out which cards are more important and when to use them.”
The gods must be smiling on Danny Frahm as he is having a wonderful game playing year. He also won The Settlers of Catan tournament at Cancon in January and will be heading off to Germany to represent Australia in the Settlers World Championships.
LXG will be hosting the Queensland Viewpoint Championship at Gencon Oz in September. This event will feed into the Viewpoint World Championships to be held in December 2010.
The Queensland League of Extraordinary Gamers (LXG) is a games club that meets on the third Sunday of every month at the Cavendish Road School Hall.
