Source: https://ygorganization.com/kaibacorprunthistownscountries/

For those of you who wanted these when they appeared in the OCG, this is your chance.

Kaiba Corporation Card Sleeves and Deck Case, available Friday, September 28. Kaiba Corporation Card Sleeves, designed for optimal performance, feature Kaiba Corporation signature circuitry design along with the stunning KC logo on top of a pearl white base with a holographic frame. Kaiba Corporation Deck Case is similarly designed and features a Deck Divider to help Duelists keep organized so they can focus on the Duel at hand. Kaiba Corporation Card Sleeves contains 50 sleeves designed to meet regulation standards, while Kaiba Corporation Deck Case is a slimmer version of previous models, forming the perfect fit for Main, Side and Extra Decks.

Temmet Brawl Decks

Temmet was on of my commander decks in 2017 because it seemed like a cool idea to double-dip on the value end. (he dies, you eternalize him, then you put him in the command zone and repeat — basically he would cost 5 mana between each commander tax if you emblamed him). While he was prety fun to play with the token theme, he was far from being really good. In brawl, where the format seems more aggressive, his ability can be more relevant (we hope).

 

Here are a few brews I found for Temmet Brawl decks while scouring the ‘net.

There are obvious similarities between the lists, but it’s funny that even with a limited card pool that is Standard – we get some cool variety within the same commander. Overall it’s quite an inexpensive undertaking to build and play this. It’s combar oriented with some incremental value and a few ‘get back in the game’ cards like Fumigate. I’ll undoubtedly be crafting my own version soon using these ones for some inspiration (I’m quite partial to Embalm/Eternalize and God-Pharaoh’s Gift)

Street Fighter: The Miniatures game

Jasco Games has licensed Capcom’s classic Street Fighter for a miniatures-based board game which is being offered exclusively to backers of its Kickstarter campaign. The game is expected to release next March.


Street Fighter: The Miniatures Game is a card-driven tactical combat game featuring the characters from the classic arcade game. The characters move around the game board, which is filled with 3D cardboard terrain pieces that can be smashed by the fighters or used as obstacles. Cards determine which moves the fighters can make, with attacks and defenses resolved through the use of dice. The game will include one-on-one, free-for-all, team play, and boss mode variants.

Each character in the game is represented by a “collector’s scale” pre-painted plastic miniature ranging from 65mm to 85mm in height and mounted on a sculpted 58mm base, plus a unique 40-card deck of move cards.

The game will include 6 character miniatures plus 2 boss miniatures, 4 battle maps, an assortment of 3d terrain, 428 cards, 8 battle dice, 10 double sided character cards, 8 double sided player boards, and an assortment of game counters.  Additional materials may be added based on stretch goals, along with add-on kits featuring additional characters.

Production will be funded through a Kickstarter campaign which has so far reached $612,596 from 3,122 backers (an average of $196.22 per backer) with 28 days remaining.  Backer fulfillment is scheduled for March, 2019.

Jasco has announced that the game will not be offered through the trade.  According to the Kickstarter campaign page, the “costs of manufacturing a game like this are extremely high” due to the quality, size, and quantity of miniatures and cards.  The company plans to have a few copies for direct sale at conventions.

Architect TCG launch

Force of Will Inc. is soliciting for preorders on two Starter Duel Decks for its new Architect Trading Card Game which will launch on July 20.

Set in the year 2111, various factions gather to battle over disparate ideals: the present vs the past, magic vs science; who controls the future? History’s greatest minds, the New- Roma (Leonardo da Vinci, Einstein) battle against the current intelligentsia (Unity Forces) over rewriting the past, and Sorcerers (Merlin) fight the zombie army of the NewTech Co. with magic.

Each Starter Duel Deck, Wizards vs NewTech Co. and Neo-Rome vs Unity, includes two 50 card decks. Each carton (no displays) includes 40 decks. Preorders will include a bonus of 1 Limited Force of Will special PR Card in each Duel Deck. MSRP was not announced at this time.
