I was simply noting that to some people who are playing it's NOT a new game. I for one have had the rules for the game pre GenCon (last OCT.) since I assisted with the translations for one of the fan sites (provided all the scans of the rules book.)
I have only played about 10 matches but it only took me about 15 minutes to learn the base rules enough to play and about 2 matches to learn what to play and when to play it.
It's new; it's fun, but my players like prizes when I run tournaments. Last week I ended up running a free tourney since the store wasn't able to get the boosters in to supply prizing that way either.
The sooner we have prize support the sooner we begin converting the people playing games with solid prize support now. And every new player is another chance to make sure this game stays solid.
