If you haven’t signed up for Mantic Games newsletter here is a sample of what you are missing.

 

The malevolent human Corporation is expanding its sphere of influence, annexing more and more star systems to its territories, bringing every alien civilization it can under its control. Or, if this proves impossible, exterminating them.

Well trained and equipped with the best in military technology, Corporation Troopers are worth scores of the warriors of less advanced cultures. The Troopers’ armor is often invulnerable to the natives’ weapons, leaving them free to mercilessly mow down scores of the enemies with pulses from their laser weaponry. Indeed, a great many recruitment videos glory in human troops slaughtering spear-waving “savages” for the betterment of the cosmos. If they encounter heavier resistance, the Troopers can bring the awesome firepower of their tanks and powered exoskeletons to bear. In dire circumstances an expeditionary commander may petition Corporation Central to unleash their most specialized forces who will quickly dispatch even the most stubborn of foes.

 

From its ancient beginnings on the Solar System, the Corporation has spread like a malignant cancer across the galaxy, covering entire sectors in its tyrannical rule and suffocating any attempt to live free of its clutches. Their expansion continues, but the galaxy is a big place. The Corporation is not the monolithic entity many think it to be, and suffers tensions between the great Houses and Companies that comprise it. And all those pampered, rich men who debate and bicker in the sterile halls of Corporation Central share one, deep-seated fear: that sooner or later the Corporation will meet its match in the unexplored expanses of deep space…

 

Thank You Mantic for the sneak peak.

WizKids/Neca Align with Gale Force Nine to Create the Supremacy League

HeroClix Supremacy League System is a focal point for organized play at the retail store level. The league serves to give a loose format to open play in stores without placing undue restrictions or requirements on participants. It supports a casual format of organized play that can supplement a store’s tournament events, and helps to create excitement in-store for ongoing play throughout the week.

Record keeping is done entirely on the board, making it a breeze to run at the store level and minimizing the effort needed to implement it. It also serves as a focal point in the store, creating excitement for new players and long time players alike!

 

 

 

The board includes five of the Convention Prize Exclusive Figures from 2011 – one copy each of Ms Marvel LE, DC Wonder Woman LE, and three Horsemen of the Apocalypse LE figures (one of each!). The figure value alone makes the kit a bargain, and the power of the board to pull players into the store will pay off dividends for a long time to

come as players make purchases!

The HeroClix Supremacy League System is expected to begin shipping in the first week of January. Some minor assembly is required.

 

This sounds like a great way to push casual play.   A league that runs during regular events – so it doesn’t interfere with the games the players already planned on.  plus it has great prizes to boot.   We will try and get a better scoop on this from Alliance.

Kaboom!  A colorful cloud of smoke billows out of the cauldron out from the cauldron in the old Magicians Kitchen™ where the magicians apprentices are learning the art of cooking magic potions.  Each ingredient must be tossed carefully into the pot, but hidden areas in the board may trip you, causing your ingredients to go flying.  Make sure you don’t stumble or the potion will be ruined.  Once all the ingredients are in place, its time to light a fire under the cauldron for the final test to see who can make the potion the fastest.

Magic the Gathering Card Quality

 Magic The Gathering, Wizards of the Coast  Comments Off on Magic the Gathering Card Quality

Sorry this is coming to you late I have been a sleep for about two days fighting off pain and a fever.

Card quality is a source of much debate because it runs so close to card quality and tempo. I will even go as far to say that they are often the same. Over the years card quality has been a lot of different things. But, I believe card quality is the weight of the cards ability against its mana cost in the given environment.

Let’s look at some hypothetical examples.
