    Conquest System?

    The Conquest system may not fit the Android Universe, but there is plenty of content and mythos developed for Android that other competitive LCGs could work. ****, there are three board games in that setting. I was just seeing if there was a way to merge the Conquest system with Android. It's not likely for sure, just ideas. I do think a Conquest system works best with some sort of game about war and, well, conquest. There are plenty of settings out there that could be used for it.

    The Next LCG

    The issue with the end of Netrunner, even if it is ultimately not FFG's fault, many player's will feel that way. FFG will be playing clean up for a long time with them. I think another LCG in the Android Universe would be amazing. Not sure on the exact theme, but there is plenty of world to explore. They would need to step back and create a fresh new system, thought Objective Sets from the Star Wars LCG may make sense for an Android Corporation game-each player represents a different Corp trying to interfere with other Corp's agendas.

    Conquest System?

    I adore the Conquest system and I'd really like to see them use it again. I was hoping for an Elder Scrolls LCG but not seeing how bad things can go with a licensed IP (Netrunner), it's probably best if they used their own IP. I actually think the Star Wars LCG would still be around if it was using the Conquest game system instead. For their current IPs, TI may be the best fit, with Terrinoth behind that. I'm not too familiar with either of them myself, but I've heard plenty. The TI universe seems interesting and could get more people into the board game as well. I was trying to think of how Conquest could be adapted to the Android-verse. Corporation battling for different markets across the world? Warlords being replaced with different powerful individuals from Corporations? Not sure it works but the premise could be neat.
  4. Star Wars Destiny is on the rise in Louisville, Kentucky! After a massive 97 person Regional, we are looking to continue building our local community beyond our one weekly event at The Destination. I have been talking to different LGS's trying to see if any other venues may be interesting in hosting. Finally, we have one shop looking to get things started again. Bluegrass Magic Gameshop is looking to host a draft event this Saturday, February 24th, starting around 1 or 2. There will be six Draft packs available in the store for those that do not have one. Prizes will be based on attendance. If you are interested, please comment below so we can get an idea of numbers. If the turnout is good for this and there is enough ongoing interest, I'm sure a more regular event at this shop could take place.

    The Next LCG

    It doesn't have to be a direct translation, just using the setting. There is plenty of group battles that have occurred in those settings, especially Elder Scrolls. Regardless, I think utilizing the Bethesda IP's is a great idea no matter game they make.

    The Next LCG

    I think if they were to do another LCG, they should look into working with Bethesda and utilizing one of their big properties, like DOOM, Fallout, or the Elderscrolls. Since they already have some board games using those IPs, I don't think it's a stretch to see them used more. I for one would LOVE if they took the Conquest system and applied it to a Bethesda IP. That game was one of their best LCGs and it's system could be used for so many different things.

    Cardboard Duelists! LCGs Reborn!

    Where: Bluegrass Magic Gameshop 5629 Outer Loop, Louisville, KY 40219 When: September 15th, 2017 Time: 6:00 PM-Midnight Every Friday night starting around 6:00 PM, Duelists can unite to play practice games, learn new games, and even participate in tournaments. The current hot games being played are Legend of the Five Rings: The Card Game, Android: Netrunner, Game of Thrones: The Card Game, and Star Wars: The Card Game. Other dueling card games may make it to the table from time to time, my other favorites being Ashes, CODEX, and Exceed. But, the main focus of these meetups will be the LCGs from FFG. Whether you're a seasoned pro-duelist or a newbie looking to learning a new game, this is the place to be on a Friday night! "Legend has it that in the years of our lord, the early 2010s, a ragtag group of cardboard shuffling, sharp minded individuals came together to test their might and their wits in games focused on skill, not collectibility. These games were known as LCGs, the card games whose very essence were derived from life itself! After many nights of Friday, through training and study alike, these individuals would face-off in the most epic of duels, testing their abilities against each other! Yet, despite these grand battles, as time passed and the grit of life and love became ever more present, the duels began to dwindle. Eventually, the War of Cardboard would seize and the duelists disappeared back into the world. But now, in the year of our lord, 2017, the great god of the living card game, the bringer of the eternal shuffle through their flights of fantasy, have given rebirth to an old legend. After searching through the lands of Rokugan, the god known as Eff Eff Gee has gathered the five elemental rings together, thus bringing together a once broken community to reenter the fray of the dueling arena. Not to be out done by the Five Rings and their legends, warriors from other worlds are reappearing to fight in the War of Cardboard. Those who fought for the Iron Throne; those who battled amongst the stars; and those who ran nets from New Angeles and beyond. The war never truly ended and the eternal warriors known as the Cardboard Duelists never truly stopped fighting. The battles have begun again! The duels shall continue on!"

  11. Yeah, early ANR was actually way more balanced than people realized. The issue was is people thought they solved the game with Criminal being the best Runner, which wasn't entirely true. Corp side was actually pretty diverse during the first year. In my first regional, all factions were represented and I think most made it to the top 8. I was running Kate/Weyland (Scorch). My Shaper deck was destroying games that day. In fact, the only reason I lost in top 8 was due to some severely bad RNG. I was up against an HB Glacier deck and the game ended up dragging out with his agendas apparently sitting in the bottom of R&D. I think I was only one agenda away from winning, but I don't remember. I was hitting R&D every other turn with multi-access and finding nothing, and he had ICE'd up extremely well by that point. And counter to what people would have thought, Noise and NBN: Making News won that event. From my experience, even though some games, balance can be way off, but what happens just as much is players settle with what seems to be an established meta and stop exploring other options. Hopefully L5R will have a diverse meta for a long time.

    How is your Community?

    Which is good to hear. I think I know who this is I'm talking to-Giles? But yeah, demoing and organizing events will be the first part to get it to grow. And from there, we'll need support from LGSs to host events. I also hope to be able to advertise the group through multiple channels. It's surprising how often people don't realize a game exists or there is a community to play with. I was talking to someone about Netrunner recently and they said they use to play a couple of years ago but stopped since there wasn't anyone in Louisville to play with...and we had one of the biggest groups in this region. Apparently, the information is getting out there about these various games and places to play. Although, often times, it's just lack of initiative or resourcefulness on a player's part to see out info and people to play with.

    How is your Community?

    I'm also from the Louisville area. I do know many LCG players and non-LCG players are interested in this. At the very least, we should have a strong group to start. But, a variety of people in this area have been burned from groups seeming to start strong and then outright disappearing within a few months (Conquest and VS was this way), so some are hesitant to jump in to this at launch. My hope, if the game is good, it stays strong within the first year and then continues to grow from there if we have active organizers and proper support from FFG and LGSs.

    New Errata Coming

    What does the fact that these were errata'd say about the playtesting for this game? Although I agree with the errata decision, it only increases my frustration with the designers of the game and general lack of forethought and balance. These changes also do practically nothing to the already tight meta, and in fact may have hurt it. They even admitted the Second Chance/Ammo Belt combo wasn't really effecting competitive play. I want to see characters rebalanced so we can see a more diverse field of teams in tournaments. But with the recent reveal of K2SO, they obviously don't know how to properly balance point value on characters.

    Draft Format & Draft Packs

    So, I've drafted three times since I made this post and it was a blast each time. Being able to mix factions and colors more easily make for some super intriguing deck builds. My first build ended up being eAssaj Ventress/Snap Wexley. The control was strong with this one. Last night we drafted Awakenings and the only character I drafted was a Storm Trooper. So, my build ended up being Double Storm Troopers (Generic Boys as we call them), Hired Gun, and Outer Rim Smuggler. I went ramp and control in that build (I got some great use out of Black Market and Black One). The rules we used were 6 packs per person. Open two packs, conceal the dice in a box, and mix the cards. Draft one card at a time and pass like normally. Deckbuilding restrictions were 25-30 card decks, any number of a card and any colors, with the only color restrictions being spotting or 'character only' limits. 30 Point limit on characters with access to singles of any non-unique to build your team with. There was also a neutral pool of singles you could add to your deck if needed: Dodge, Block, Take Cover, BB-8, Rey's Staff, and Infantry Grenade. Overall, the format worked quite well. My only concern is the inclusion of any non-uniques.
