I have been contemplating this post for about a week now. Hell, I’ve been contemplating alot of things having to do with this blog and Bending Steel Review. I still don’t know just what I’m going to say, so what you read is coming straight off the top of my head. Read the rest of this entry »

I Have Seen the Madness, and I am Scarred

Posted by jadecanary on June 30, 2008

When you are playing “The Coming of Galactus” and you find the Alliance is up 72-27 going into turn 6, you start to feel a little comfortable, right? Not when you enter the Asylum. Read the rest of this entry »

This is a knock-out tournament. You lose, you are out. Golden Age constructed, The Secret Society and Underworld are Banned, as well as MOR-207: Overpowered. MUN cards are not legal.

here’s the kicker: If you win, you don’t shuffle your KO pile and RFG cards back into your deck. They remain in those zones throughout the tournament. Like the villians trapped on the prision planet in the Salvation Run mini-series, you have what you came with, you use it, you lose it, and if you lose, you die.

The winner will get the hobby league top prize. There is no entrance fee.

EDIT: I was thinking about it while delivering the mail today. In wrap up, if it is determined that you have won the game, you must put each face-up non-ongoing Plot Twist in your resource row into your KO pile. This keeps with the theme of Salvation Run.

I am STUNNNEDHENCHMAN. Yes, it is true. I’ll give you a little background on the name. I needed a name. STUNNEDHENCHMAN seem VS-ie. I went for it. The End.

I don’t post much on the Realms. There really isn’t much I have to say on the forum. The conversation revolves around how to break a card or real honest-to-God competition. There has never seemed to be much for me to comment about.

I headed to the Realms on Thursday after I got home for work as one of those “last second” checks before I get ready for hobby league. When I get there, I see a second message from UDE for the Mega-Weekend fiasco. I don’t care about Mega-Weekend NY. I feel for those that traveled there only to get screwed, but I wasn’t one of them. What caught my attention was the last paragraph…

Product Reprints
Reprinting our recent sets has been a hot topic on the realms recently, and the only thing I can say to you guys about this now is to continue to express your interest in these products not only here, but also to your retailers. This will propagate the signs of demand up the chain through retailers to the distributor level, where it will hit out sales scouts and come back to us. Obviously, we know that there are players who are having trouble getting their hands on products, but we need a better idea of the exact number of players impacted and the size of the demand.

Reprints. We need to order a product that is no longer available so that UDE may consider wether or not to make more. What? So I said (wrote?)… Read the rest of this entry »
