If you're new at the forum, then perhaps it's a good idea to introduce yourself here.

My name is Wim Heemskerk (aka Gwaihir). I am from the Netherlands, still trying to find time to graduate (I spend too much on MeCCG promotion), and the one who came up with this idea. I'm active for MeCCG in the Dutch Council and beyond and I've started a MeCCG redistributor / store called not too long ago. - The Middle-earth CCG store

I'm Nigel from London (UK). I'm fairly active on the MECCG List, been playing MECCG since it arrived in the UK, and one of the prime organisers of the (now dead) tournament scene in the UK.

I'm part of the net-rep team, and regularly write articles on MECCG in the Guild Companion (

I'm planing one more tournament in London, in December (sealed deck), assuming I get enough players turn up to make it viable :roll:

My name is Tommi Ronkainen and i am probably the first MeCCG tournament organizer in Finland. First tournaments were held soon after release of the The Wizards limited edition.

My current project is to provide multiplatform generic collectible card game engine. Especially important game for me is of course MeCCG, which is definetly my favourite ccg ever made.

You can check it out at
It is available for Linux, Windows and Mac OS X. It is compiled also succesfully using several BSD-systems and Sun OS.

HI :twisted:
I just registered my account, hooray!! My name is Antonio. I started playing MECCG (my first CCG!!) in 2000. After 2 years, I decided to run a tournament in the northeast USA and I ran it for 2 years already :D

I have some experience with software development (mainly business oriented) but I managed to get into web developing. If I can be of any help, just let me know :wink:

I'll be around

Hello all

I'm Mark Alfano from New Jersey, USA. I've been playing MECCG for about 4-5 years now, but only really started playing actively about 3 years ago. I've run two tournaments so far, one at my house and one at school. More to come.... Oh, and I'm on the team to help create a FAQ and examples of complicated plays, so just let me know if there's anything you'd like to see on there or if you'd like to help out! :wink:

Greetings all,

I've been playing MECCG for a couple years now but have been a Tolkien fan for ...ahem... decades. I live in NJ though I would never call it my home. I am a Unix SysAdmin by profession and thereby have quite a bit of experience with all things Web related. I have an MECCG site with some useful thingies on it which you can visit at:

Included are a searchable card "database", a deck-builder and a CGI that finds potential trade partners on Chris Cable's trade site.

Hello everyone! My name's Paul Choquette, and I've been playing MECCG since just after METW Unlimited was released. I don't program for a living, but do enjoy it as one of my hobbies. I've lived in the Seattle area for 5 years now. I played MECCG much more when I lived in NC. Of course, the tournament scene was a lot bigger than it is now, too. :D I've made several programs (most of which are defunct now) for use with NetMECCG and did the graphics work for the custom cards distributed at Worlds in Montreal. Currently, I am working on drafting a universal digital deck format (see the forum in the developers section).

Hey all

I'm Kris Van Beurden from Antwerp, Belgium, and was introduced into playing the ME CCG by the gen engine wigy mentioned. However, I followed ME strategy etc since its launch - just never found money and/or players to start it.

I'm a huge Tolkien fan and as such it sucks that I never got around to buying the real cards ... was too busy collecting Magic & Star Wars at the time.

You may call me Strider. Or Joe. I have played middle-earth for about 3 years with only 2 people, so it was quite a new thing when I went to the Nationals in DC last year. 8)

You are far to modest about your English Gerard, but if you'd rather use German, please feel free to. - The Middle-earth CCG store
