NAFC 2013 flash report: Ceetee!

Still in the 'aftermath' of the NAF Championship held the 25th and 26th of May (2013), I've managed to get a flash report from fellow TFF'er Ceetee, about his games in this year's tournament.
Here's his take on the event:

Well the NAFC has come and gone, and it was a great experience. I went with my brother and because a lot of us stayed at the venue, the socialising was brilliant. So how about the games?
I took Elves with 2 Blitzers, 2 Catchers, a Thrower and 6 Linos, with 3RRs and an Apo.

   Game 1 - Made of Welsh (Goblins)
Two chainsaws looked a lot of trouble against my AV7 - fortunately, Nobbla kicked back in turn 1, then a 3d blitz took the other off the pitch. A slow grind, hitting as many gobboes as possible lead to 1-0 at the half, and 2-0 at the end.
   Game 2 - DaBoar (Dwarf)
Dwarves are not an Elves' favourite opponent, but some elf stalling led to 1-0 at halftime. DaBoar ground down the field. However, a tiny positioning error allowed me to surf his runner in turn 6 of the second half, so I ran out 1-0 winner. I was given some D6s from his club, too - thanks!
  Game 3 - Jericho (Dwarf)
My second Italian opponent, my second Dwarf opponent! A similar game to the last, 1-0 up, but then some great work from Jericho saw him hand off to score the equalizer turn 16 - close all the way through and a great game.

   Game 4 - Podfrey (Dwarf)
Great. Dwarves again and this time Podfrey. I kicked again and did a good job of slowing the drive up. However, a half-hearted attempt at mobbing the cage allowed Geoff to push through and score at the half. The second half started with some ridiculous positioning on my part, which quite rightly got my all carrier catcher surfed. A lucky throw-in got me back in the game and I equalised in turn 5. A deep kick made it a little trickier, but 6 GFIs later, (including a reroll on the last one!) Geoff won the game 2-1 and went on to win the League championship.
   Game 5 - Stick (Norse)
A complete and utter dicing. Stick is an excellent player, but his dice were dreadful, whilst mine were astounding. Nothing he tried worked, whilst everything I attempted came off. A one-sided 5-0 win that seems more and more ridiculous the more I think of it. Sorry Stick!
   Game 6 - Wilzif (Undead)
The last game, and the chance to face an opponent whom I last played 5 years ago. Wilf received the kickoff and set about smashing my Elves. I used my Apo early on a Wrestle lino which meant I couldn't use it on my Blitzer in the next turn. I got plenty of shots at his Blodge ghoul ball carriers, but Wilf worked the ball into the endzone turn 8. In the second half, he got a great shot on my ball carrier and wound up a deserved 2-0 winner.

So, 3-1-2 and a great weekend.

I will definitely be back next year at the best attended tourney in the UK.
All the best,
Ceetee (*)
