I don’t have a link for this, exactly, but I had a talk last night with a couple of fairly serious, if amateur, local Magic players last night and they told me something interesting. It is heavily rumored, but unconfirmed, that the next expansion after the current base set (which
Upper Deck has just announced a multi-year deal with Nickelodeon. Yes, this means you’ll be seeing trading cards and CCGs based on the cartoon shows SpongeBob Squarepants, Jimmy Neutron, Fairly Odd Parents, and Rocket Power, all of which my daughter has watched (and therefore, so have I). Of these, I
Alien Menace will be bringing three of Mythrole Games’ downloadable games to print in March 2003. The Mythrole titles Witch Hunt, Shrimpin’, and my personal favorite, Night of the Ill-Tempered Squirrel will join the Alien Menace lineup. It’s great to see Tyler Sigman’s game designs from Mythrole reach stores in
Although the Vortex product page says September, the rants page says next week or so. That’s when you might see Vortex: Maelstrom, a complete set of all the starter and common flats from collectible tile game Vortex, which, when we reviewed it way back when, we said we would have
There’s this press release going, “We’re doing this amazing new fantasy thing and it needs playtesters” (the exact quote is below), but then on this company bio-kinda page they flat out say they’re making a Warhammer CCG to follow up the 40K one. Not sure whom they’re trying to tease,
I mean the company, of course, not the man. Steve Jackson himself is a born entertainer. But those responsible for the title “Munchkin 3: Bard For Life” for the next expansion to the smash hit dungeon-delving card game have been sacked. According to the Daily Illuminator (under December 7), it’s
Wingnut Games has launched new forums to discuss their games, see previews of upcoming products, and generally run amuck. Get over there and start harassing Aldo. He likes it.
That’s right, kids: you might not have noticed, but WotC‘s new-ish Star Wars card game now has starter decks and boosters of A New Hope – cards drawn entirely from the first film (albeit the special edition), not the crap with the teen idol and the Marriage of (*choke* *gasp*)
Now that we’ve played more Fightball, and sampled this German real-time card game, I think I can safely say that the future of realtime card games looks a lot more like regular card games than it used to. We’re playing enough Fightball that we may be heading for a full
Just who is Jeseret Games? Well, it’s a british company that was in the back right corner of the GenCon exhibit hall showing off Magical Arena. The game pits CCG players against wargamers in both skirmish miniatures and card game formats, simultaneously. Of course, the cards and minis can play
…but I’m not too preoccupied to go down to the store and play a test game between House Lassiter and House Baratheon.
Buffy fans, take note: the official Buffy CCG website is offering a free card for a minimum of work. If you’re willing to either fax or mail a printout of this PDF (the contact info’s on the PDF), you’ll receive a free “Computer Threat” promo card. Players who join in
If you want in on the ground floor of BRAWL (and believe me, you do – the first edition set really is the way to learn the game), get some now. just announced that the first BRAWL set is going out of print.
As we reported last Friday, the current incarnation of the Star Wars CCG is in peril, as Decipher revealed that Lucasfilm did not renew their license. We also reported that Wizards of the Coast appeared to be the — um, force driving Lucasfilm’s decision. Well, sure enough, WotC just announced
No, I’m not talking about that book, although I’ll link it, ’cause it’s cool. I mean the sort-of-football-shaped bar code reader and math-doer that Wizards bundled with every NFL Showdown 2002 starter set. The PlayGrid device, manufactured by WotC’s sibling company Tiger, has a great deal of trouble reading the
