OgreCave video: Japji Khalsa at KublaCon 2014

Tuesday, August 26th, 2014

In our final KublaCon 2014 video, we manage to grab a few minutes with Japji Khalsa, Executive Producer and founder of KublaCon. In this video, we learn about the CCG-derived origins of the convention, how game designers use the show for their own nefarious ends, and some of the latest improvements to the overall KublaCon experience. You’ll get a small tour of Hyatt amenities, a few words from this year’s exhibitors about the convention, and glimpses of other KublaCon activities, between segments. In all, if you haven’t figured out KublaCon is “The Khan of Cons” yet, you simply haven’t been paying attention!

Have a look at all six KublaCon videos, and be sure to subscribe on YouTube to get all our upcoming video coverage. We’ll have some new things soon. No, really.

The Spoils CCG Rescue Mission

Tuesday, April 27th, 2010

Since Tenacious Games went out of business there was some doubt as to whether The Spoils CCG would ever produce a new set. When Arcane Tinmen acquired the rights to produce The Spoils, a limited number of tournaments and casual play sessions restarted for the game. Now, for the first time, Arcane Tinmen is producing a new expansion set release. The new set is called Seed II – Gloamspike’s Revenge. Arcane Tinmen is offering full sets of every card in the release and deeply discounted package deals through participating local game stores and via direct sales.

New Multiplayer MTG format starting September

Thursday, May 21st, 2009

Wizards of the Coast has announced a new set of products called Planechase for Magic the Gathering which will focus on multiplayer gameplay. Planechase game packs will include 70 cards, a special die (yes dice in MTG), and a strategy insert with multiplayer rules. While MTG has long had multiplayer formats such as “five color magic”, “two headed giant”, and “emperor”, this release is noteworthy in that the Planechase products include “plane cards” specifically designed for playing just this format.  Planechase release events will be held September 4-6, 2009.
