I'm a student, 27 years old, living with my girlfriend in
Utrecht. I learned to play by myself, but soon
got alot of help from Jaap Brouwer back in March 1996;
Jaap became a good friend, and I started helping him
with the tournaments he organised. Jaap passed his
level 1 at GP - Amsterdam '97 (the very first GP) and I
passed mine in Oktober 1997, We both passed level 2 in
december 1997, and reached our unofficial level 3 in
January 1998. GP Antwerp saw our level 3's confirmed
by Wizards. We judged alot of tourneys together even
co-headjudging a GP after he became ill after day one
(I had the easy day two, so all credit goes to him). I
finally reached level 4 at worlds in Sydney.
I have never played tourney-level Magic; I love both the fun aspect of the game aswell as
the competition. Next to Magic, I play
(beach) volleyball, RPG's, Squash, Baseguitar, and loads
of boardgames. I collect Legends (the creatures) and
useually play a deck stuffed with them in multiplayer.
I always carry around a Bear deck (I really like Polar
Bears) in which a lot of the cards have bears drawn in
the picture by the artists.
At Nationals last year, I started trading for the Power Nine. Being a judge, you get those nice judge foils and boxes for judging at Pro Tours and Grand Prix – but no old cards. At Reims, I managed to get the last part: A Mox Ruby. Now all I had to do was wait for the new year before I could play with my goodies.
Sengir Autocrat, Mask of the Mimic, and Cultural Exchange combine to create a frenzy of exchange – and a token-nabbing error in play that only StarCity’s own”Ask The Judge” could catch. Why not tell YOUR craziest multiplayer error and win $5 in StarCity credit?
Gis is looking for obscure cards for the time being, but for right now he’s dealing with a VERY famous card… Not only is it banned, but it’s Tom van de Logt’s baby. What card is it? Read it and share your best multiplayer store for $5 in StarCity credit!
