    FFG: Don't mess this game up

    I have EXTREMELY high hopes for this game. It does everything I love in card game SANS customization, which I'm okay with. I also adore the art and theme. But, I am very cautiously optimistic for one reason-FFG. Their track record is horrible with new games and continuing support. Plus, they stretch themselves thin with too many community based games to support. Fortunately, they are down to only three competitive cards and I'm not sure how many of the miniature games get much support outside of X-Wing. The elegance of this game and lighthearted theme could do wonders for FFG, as well as it's cheap price point. People of all ages can play it and it requires little investment. But FFG needs to get there marketing and OP in line if they want this game to succeed beyond the first year.

    Artwork -- how do you feel about it?

    I think the art is absolutely incredible. Not only is it well done, it connects the smashed up theme quite well. It also allows the over-top absurd nature of the game's theme to come through even more. I've been wanting a good game with art like this for awhile. For those that do not like the art, the whole game and concept probably isn't for them. It's suppose to be cartoony and absurd as the craziness of the game release format wants to embrace that.
  3. What's unfortunate is this game is actually getting much better as FFG is figuring out how to properly balance things as well as make more and more interesting characters. It's not perfect, but it's a helluva lot better than the first year of the game. We once had a large community here in Louisville, KY but it has shrunk quite a bit. A couple of weeks ago I had 8 people for a Prequel Theme night, which was more we have had in awhile. And then after that, I had two and three people on the following weeks. I know a lot of the bigger local players have already sold out, but there are still people around that would play. But, due to poor marketing and info from FFG, the game is on a downward spiral. And I'm actually excited about Keyforge, but I should really be very cautious since FFG is behind. To be fair, any new game struggles when up against Magic, Pokemon, and Yu-Gi-Oh.
  4. I just wanted to share the ongoing events that are happening in Louisville in case there are any people strolling through Forums from our area. Every Wednesday at 6:00 PM at The Destination, there is an ongoing League night. Each event is Standard Constructed, but you may be awarded bonus points for certain deck building restrictions. https://www.facebook.com/events/2177339025920950/ Every Thursday at 7:00 PM at TTD, there are alternating events of Standard Constructed, Draft, and other formats. Cost of entry is $5 for constructed events and $20 for draft. This week, we are hosting a "No Small Parts" format where your team can consist of only Non-unique characters and no Legendaries in your deck. https://www.facebook.com/events/1847114362044588/ All events and other local information can be found in our Facebook group here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1207025936071933/

    New Boosters: Across the Galaxy

    And here lies the problem with Trilogies. This set release late in the year around the holidays. This means we will only get a few months to play in Trilogies before the next big set drops. I think Trilogies should always be three sets-one big set and two small. This way, the card pool keeps growing, but doesn't shrink to one set and become stagnant quickly. It also would allow the format to constantly be shifting.

    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.
  9. 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!"
