Pokemon 'Draft'

For a while I have played around with different ideas for a Pokemon Draft and with us having missed out on a pre-release for the new set tomorrows Gambit Sunday seems like it might be the chance to give one a go!

The idea is that each player will purchase 4 boosters from Sun and Moon Guardians Rising. These packs will then be 'drafted' (Players one the booster, choose one cards and pass the rest to the next player which is repeated until all cards are taken, repeat with the next three packs changing the direction each time)

This will make the deck that you have better than it would with a 'straight' sealed but there will still be a lack of trainer cards. To help balance this each player is allowed to bring 10 trainer cards (from any set) with them to add to their deck if the wish. Each of the trainer cards must be different (no duplicate cards)

Players then add the required energy cards and then play a series of games against each other to find the eventual winner!

Like to Draft?

Do you like the idea of an MTG draft but can't really justify buy three boosters? Well what about using just one?

This single booster draft format called "Mini Masters Draft" started at stores in Spain and Italy.

The idea is simple, instead of drafting with 3 boosters simply buy one per play and draft with that. Obviously it makes decks quite small and there are a few rules adjustments to normal MTG to make it work better. It is very similar to a pack wars where players simply add 15 lands to a booster without even looking at it and play a game, except this way you know what is in your deck even it it is not that much!

The extra rules are ...

  • You must use all the cards that you draft.
  • You can add only 10 basic lands and you must have at least one for every colour in your deck.
  • You may have one  free muligan at the beginning of the game.
  • You do not lose the game for being unable to draw a card.
  • You start with 15 life instead of the usual 20.

Anyone fancy giving it a go this weekend at Gambit Sunday?

Oligarchy Tournament

On Tuesday as part of our weekly games evening we held our very first competitive Oligarchy event. It was a 8 booster sealed which went really well.

Each round was an hour in length with an addition 5 turns if the games were unable to finish in this time, with the deck building process taking just under an hour and a few practice games before hand gave us over 4 hours of Oligarchy fun!

Oligarchy is a new game and deck building a new game is never easy. Trying to work out what will go well in a sealed format is tricky and can be a bit intense but everyone that played really enjoyed both the process and the games they played.

We had a mix of experience from the game designer himself Gary Wareham, through to players that had played just a couple of games. One card that seem particularily brutal was appropriately named 'Death' a once in a lifetime card. Costing 16 IP and 16 AP, it certainly is not cheap to play but if you can get there, then it is pretty hard to stop and almost impossible in sealed. (for a full list of cards check out the Oligarchy Website Codex :

Now that we have a few players, the next event for us will be a constructed deck tournament on 28th May as part of Gambit Games monthly meeting. More details to come very soon!!!

Rock Event

    Spirit of Rebellion Boosters

    The Star Wars saga has always centered on the timeless struggle between good and evil. At different points throughout the saga, evil may be lurking in the shadows or controlling an oppressive, galaxy-spanning Empire. Yet there must always be balance in the Force, and whenever the dark side rises, a spirit of rebellion begins to light the way forward.

    With the new Spirit of Rebellion Booster Packs for Star Wars: Destiny, 160 brand-new cards enter the game, incorporating elements from every movie in the saga, but with a special focus on the newest Star Wars movie: Rogue One. You’ll find plenty of characters from Rogue One within this set, including Jyn Erso, Chirrut Îmwe, Mon Mothma, and Director Krennic, alongside other iconic characters from across the Star Wars story. The spirit of rebellion has ignited—prepare to bring the feverish battles and kinetic action of Rogue One to your games of Star Wars: Destiny!

    Every booster pack includes five randomized cards and one premium die, broken down into three common cards, one uncommon card, and one rare or legendary card with a corresponding die. All cards that feature a corresponding die are either rare or legendary cards. With every booster pack, you’ll find new characters, supports, upgrades, or events, along with new ways to enter the Star Wars galaxy and fight for your chosen side!
