PokéMonday: Once you pop, the fun don’t stop.

Today on PokéMonday. We're taking a look at Booster Packs. More specifically how to properly* open them for the most suspense. Let's start with opening the pack. So when you open your pack, you're going to get your 10 cards as well as a Pokémon Trading Card Game Online code card for a digital booster pack from the same set. Here are the Cards from a pack that was just opened. As you can see the last card in the stack is not a Rare Pokémon. This is because the Out-of-the-Pack card order is 5 Commons 1 Reverse foil (A BREAK Card if you're lucky) 1 Rare or Ultra Rare 3 Uncommons So in order to have the Rare be the last card. we are going to need to do some re-ordering. So to do that we're going to need to shift the last 3 cards when opening a pack. So the last 3 [...]

Shackles of Mortality

Hi PI-Fans, It's Thursday 26th May, which means it's release date for another pair of LCG releases - this time there's new stuff for Warhammer 40,000 Conquest and Android Netrunner. In the grim darkness of Warhammer 40,000 Conquest, the Tomb Worlds are stirring as the Necron legions march to war. Legions of Death marks the debut of the Necrons as a faction in the Conquest Living Card Game as their legions march inexorably to enslave the other races of the Traxis sector. In the Android universe, characters can jack into the Network and direct their digitized avatars through a virtual world. For most people, this simply leads to accelerated use of the Network and an enriched appreciation of immersive media. Runners, however, see ways to exploit the system and focus on manipulating the virtual world to access hidden data while their Corp opponents,  look upon this as yet another resource to be tapped upon. [...]

Historically Inaccurate Fun

Hey PI-Fans, We've got new stuff upside the head and a hefty stack of reloads. Some  of them are historically accurate... sort of. Others, not so much. But hey. History is written by the victors, and you're clearly going to win aren't you? Embrace your inner Vikings and raid, pillage and explore your way to victory in an epic board game based upon the dramatic television series, or try to survive the looming apocalypse in Blood Rage. Revisit the post-apocalyptic  51st State, or join a fantasy scrum with Epic PVP! Perhaps your palette favors something lighter? Bluff your way to victory with a new chronicle pack for Seiji Kanai's Lost Legacy, or delve ever deeper into Steve Jackson's Munchkin with the oddly numbered Munchkin Expansion 6.5. Flap your way like an Icebat out of Heck with Ugly Doll Lunacy or ack ack ack Mars Attacks. Perhaps the pocket Cold War game Twilight Squabble amuses [...]

I Need A Hero…

Hey PI-Fans, Kenneth, PI Manager here. So far, I've successfully managed to avoid getting dragged into a Team Ironman vs Team Cap argument so far. With Marvel Munchkin and Marvel Legendary: Captain America, however, it looks like I may not have a choice. Which is why I'm planning to spend the weekend hiding in Westeros. It's probably safer, barring the occasional beheading. - Kenneth, Games@PI Manager ______________________________________________ New Board and Card Game Releases A Game of Thrones: True Steel Chapter Pack Marvel Legendary: Captain America Marvel Munchkin Board and Card Game Restocks 7 Wonders and Expansions Carcassonne Codenames Dixit and Expansions Dominion Galaxy Trucker and Expansions King of New York King of Tokyo Mysterium
