  1. Hey all, I'm looking to sell my Dust Tactics/Dust Warfare collection. It's a great game, but I've only managed to get it to the table and handful of times; my playgroup doesn't like war games. All pieces are unpainted pieces in mint condition, except the allied light and medium walkers, which I have modified with magnets (see below). My collection is as follows. *Original Core Set (MSRP $99.99) *Revised Core Set (MSRP $79.95) *Allies Hero Pack Expansion (MSRP $19.95) *Axis Gorillas (MSRP $14.95) *Axis Hero Pack Expansion (MSRP $19.95) *Axis Zombies (MSRP $14.95) *Battle Grenadiers (MSRP $14.95) *Card Upgrade Pack (MSRP $14.95) *Corps Officers Expansion (MSRP $19.95) *Grim Reapers (MSRP $14.95) *Heavy Assault Walker (MSRP $39.95) *Heavy Kommandotripp Expansion (MSRP $19.95) *Heavy Panzer Walker (MSRP $39.95) *Heavy Recon Grenadiers (MSRP $19.95) *Kommandotrupp (MSRP $14.95) *Light Assault Walker (MSRP $24.95) *Light Panzer Walker (MSRP $24.95) *Medium Assault Walker (MSRP $24.95) *Medium Panzer Walker (MSRP $24.95) *Operation Cerberus (MSRP $44.95) *Operation Cyclone (MSRP $39.95) *Operation SeeLowe (MSRP $39.95) *Red Devils (MSRP $19.95) *Special Ops Grenadiers (MSRP $14.95) *Special Ops Rangers (MSRP $14.95) *Tank Busters (MSRP $14.95) *Terrain Tile Set (MSRP $29.95) *The Boss (MSRP $14.95) *The Gunners (MSRP $14.95) *Dust Warfare: Core Rulebook (MSRP $39.95) Total MSRP: $839 I'm looking to sell this for $400, plus shipping and handling, but I'm willing to discuss other offers. You can PM me. I'll also be at Gencon this year, in case you want to make an in-person hand off and save on shipping. Magnet modification: I've made the following modifications to the allied walkers: * Allied Light Walkers: magnetized all light walker weapons and gun ports, to allow their weapons to be interchangeable * 2 Allied Medium Walkers: magnetized the fuel canisters attached to the rear of the walker, so the fuel canister can be attached/removed according to the build * All Allied medium Walkers: set a ring of magnets along the inside of the turret to hold the turret in place, but still allowing it to rotate freely.

  3. Hey all: Just a heads up; if you're interested, I've put the collection on ebay. I'm not sure of the FFG forum rules for posting to third-party sales sites, so I won't post the link here, but you can search for it as "A Game of Thrones LCG Collection Lot (3600+ cards)," or just PM me for the link. Cheers, Nate
  4. Hey everybody: This lot will be going up on e-bay in less than a week, but I thought I'd post it here first to see if anyone was interested. It's my entire Game of Thrones card collection. I love the game, but I no longer have the time to play it. All cards are in mint condition. I'm asking for $400, not including S&H (probably priority mail boxes). Included is the following: * 3 copies of A Game of Thrones Core Set (MSRP $40 each) * 1 copy of Lords of Winter (MSRP $30) * 1 copy of Kings of the Storm (MSRP $30) * 1 copy of Queen of Dragons (MSRP $30) * 1 copy of Lions of the Rock (MSRP $30) * 3 copies of Kings of the Sea (First edition printing, MSRP $30)* * 1.5 copies of Princes of the Sun (First edition printing, MSRP $30)** * 1 copy of each chapter pack from the "A Clash of Arms" cycle (First edition printing, MSRP $60)*** * 1 copy of each chapter pack from the "A Time of Ravens" cycle (First edition printing, MSRP $60)*** * 1 copy of each chapter pack from the "King's Landing" cycle (First edition printing, MSRP $60)*** * 1 copy of each chapter pack from the "Defenders of the North" cycle (First edition printing, MSRP $60)*** * 1 copy of each chapter pack from the "Brotherhood without Banners" cycle (MSRP $90) * 1 copy of each chapter pack from the "Secrets of Oldtown" cycle (MSRP $90) * 1 copy of each chapter pack from the "A Tale of Champions" cycle (MSRP $90) * 500+ proxies**** * The first edition printing of Kings of the Sea had 1x copy of 60 cards, so I bought three to build a full playset of x3 copies. The current edition contains x3 copies of each, and is priced at MSRP $30, so that's how I'm listing it here. The three resin Greyjoy house cards that came with my first edition copies (not included in the current edition) are included in this lot. ** The first edition printing of Princes of the Sun had 2x copies of 60 cards, so I bought a second set and split it with a friend to build a full playset of x3 copies. The current edition contains x3 copies of each, and is priced at MSRP $30, so that's how I'm listing it here. *** The first edition printing of each chapter pack in this cycle contained x1 copy of 10 cards and x3 copies of 10 cards (40 cards total). **** I used old, pre-LCG era AGOT cards to make up proxies so that I had at least x3 copy of each card, and x6 copies of some cards that I would use in multiple decks (Narrow Escape, for example). I'm including these with the lot. PM me if you're interested; otherwise I'll make an announcement when the ebay auction goes up. Cheers, Nate
  5. telkryn said: Greetings everyone! So i'm planning on picking up this game after playing Lotr and Sw LCG, and I was wondering how many core sets do I need in order to make decks? Is the distribution like Lotr (some 3x,2x,1x, so you end up buying 3 core and have lots of extra) or like SW (pretty much 1x everything, which means 2 core would give you everything you need with almost no extra) Also, i've only checked the rules super fast, and haven't seen the info (its probably there but i figured id ask anyways), how many of every individual card are we allowed in a single deck? Thanks in advance for you help! I'll probably have a couple more questions when i start playing a) If you want to test out the game, or want a good "off-the-shelf" game with limited deckbuilding, buy 1 Core Set. b) If you want the tools to build 1-2 strong corp decks, and a 1-2 strong runner decks, buy 2 Core Sets (and consider picking up the data packs as they come out) c) If you want to build 2-3 strong corp decks and 2-3 strong runner decks at once and/or if you're absolutely fanatical about having x3 copies of every card, the buy 3 Core Sets (and consider picking up the data packs as they come out)
  6. I always through it stood for: "Awwwwww…. POW!" As in, the thing you shout when a runner gets hit by your Neural Katana. Then you do a little dance.

What collectible/customizable game offers you a complete playset in a single box? none. what other games do is irrelevant. Good dialogue. Well, I think I'll be hitting that old dusty road. Cheers, everybody.

  9. @signoftheserpent I'll try asking it again: what existing game are you basing your expectations on? What collectible/customizable game offers you a complete playset in a single box? You've repeatedly said that FFG distribution choice is "bizarre and ill informed" and "a very flawed decision." But the game seems to be a commercial and critical success; it's repeatedly sold out and is the #1 ranked customizable game on BGG. You're saying it could have been even better, but I think if you're going to argue with the level of success they've had, you should be able to point to some examples of games that did exactly what you're claiming is the right decision. What game gives you a complete playset in a box?
  10. signoftheserpent said: It's just arbitrary and frankly self defeating to do things as FFG has. @signoftheserpent I don't think it's accurate to call the core set distribution either arbitrary or self-defeating. a) Arbitrary: The core set distribution represents (in my opinion) an attempt at offering both a diversity of options with a consistency of play. So the core set decks contain 3x of "staple" cards (Sure Gamble, Diesel, Cyberfeeder, Easy Mark, etc) and 1x of cards which tended to have lower utility in multiples (over half of them are unique, so can't be played in multiples). This demonstrates a very intentional design towards creating an out-of-the-box experience, which you can critisize, but I don't think you can rightfully call it "arbitrary." b) Self-Defeating: If the mark of "defeat" is poor sales, then this the Core Set is obviously not self-defeating. It's sold far better than they ever expected it to (judging by the Gencon rush). Of course, if you define "success" by "providing a complete playset in a box," then the Core Set is self-defeating, but I don't think that was FFG's criteria for success. I was curious if you had any answers to the question in my previous post: is there another collectible/customizable card game that offers a complete playset in a box?
  11. This thread started me thinking: Has there ever been a customizable game (a game in which you "build" your deck/force before playing) that offered a full playset in the introductory box? I ran down the list of the most popular customizable games on BGG, but I didn't find any that offered a full playset: Android: Netrunner - no Summoner Wars - no Mage Wars - no? (not sure about this one) Lord of the Rings - no Heroscape - no Netrunner (original) - no Dungeon Command - no A Game of Thrones - no Warhammer: Invasion - no (If I'm wrong about any of the above, feel free to correct me with a strong blow to the face). I ask because I think it's fair to put FFG's distribution system in context with other popular games of a similar type in the market. It seems like most of the games above offer a fixed distribution, non-full-playset "game-in-a-box," (I think Magic offers this with fixed distribution decks, right?). If we're going to call FFG's core set distribution "bad," then is there any company that produces customizable games that made a "good" decision in this regard?
  12. I'll be buying a single copy of the core set and playing it. If it provides a good out-of-the-box experience, I'll probably buy a second or third set as needed or justified depending on how much play it sees. If it's not a good out-of-the-box experience, then I've got a lot of other games on my shelf. The highest priority for me (and, I think, for Fantasy Flight) is that the core set be a fun, self-contained game: that it be accessible, easy to teach, and that the included decks are consistent enough to follow a strategic theme. If they can provide that out-of-the-box came with a 1x 252 distribution (or even a x3 distribution), then I'll be fine with that. But if they prioritize ease of collectibility over out-of-the-box fun, they'll run the risk of failing to capture a wide enough pool of players, which will cut the game's life short. I think a Core Set with a mixed distribution can still present a quality compromise between completists and casual gamers. If it provides an enticing, quality experience, casual gamers are more likely to become completists, fueling the development of the game. As for the out-of-the-gate completists, even assuming that the distribution is x1 of 42 cards, x2 of 42 cards, and x3 of 42 cards, it would still be $120 RSVP for a full playset of 126 cards, which is still cheaper, more reliable, and less wasteful than randomized boosters. My two cents.
  13. LCG stands for "Living Card Game" and it's a distribution model. http://www.fantasyflightgames.com/edge_npm.asp?eidm=14 It means that there won't be any randomized starters or boosters. If this follows the format of previous LCGs, there will be a "Core Set" containing a 2-4 fixed decks (mostly a x1 distribution of cards in the core set), and monthly expansions of 60 cards (x3 of each card), a "large expansion" coming out every now and then offer 165 cards (x3 of 55 cards).
  14. … AUTO-BUY. See you at the demo table at Gencon!
