THE STORY OF US
Claus first got involved with Star Wars Destiny in the middle of the infamous "Awakenings-Shortage" time ... yes, those were dark times! Realizing there were no cards to be bought, he finally managed to procure a collection for sale. After having built his first deck, he signed up for a tournament at the Local Game Store, and alas, only 4 players showed up. After several attempts at getting a decent player base assembled for regular play, he encountered Mads Utzon, a former Magic Pro Tour player, who ran Analog Spilleklub (eng. Analog Gaming Club), ASK, together with his dad. Mads offered the club as a venue for future Star Wars Destiny gaming nights and events.
After having promoted the game a bit we finally managed to assemble 6 players for our regular Destiny Tuesday, then 8, then 12 and suddenly at the end of 2017 we were 25 players meeting up regularly. The club has had its ups and downs, but it is now the base of the YOUR Destiny Podcast crew. We record our podcasts from there, and this is where Claus and Mads are getting most of their IRL games in. ASK also served as the venue for our Destiny Christmas celebration, BBQ party - you name it!
In December 2017, Claus and Mads went to the GQ in Madrid on a hunch. Not only did Mads win the event, but we also met Christine Hoelz, David Levy, Tobias Winter and Miguel Vilarroya, with whom we kept contact. They would eventually form the foundation of our TTS test group, which we named "The European Gauntlet". The European Gauntlet has since grown and continues to do so with the best players from around Europe joining its ranks.
We are now running a podcast, a YouTube Channel, a Facebook page, a Patreon, a Twitch Channel with live streams, a Discord Channel and this website, while we've been succesfully winning tournaments in Denmark, Sweden, Germany, Spain, UK and the United States of America ... and we are not done yet! This is just the beginning of the story!
