Another week has gone by meaning time for an update on all things in that happened for us at Late Night Players.
First up, we’ll begin with the 500 Games in 2017 challenge-
This week, we played a total of 12 games between 5 unique titles. Of those 5 titles, 2 were brand new games never before played in our circle. The games and their totals were:
- Final Fantasy Trading Card Game x2
- Star Wars Destiny x4
- CardFight Vanguard x3
- Batman the Animated Series Dice Game x2
- Munchkin Marvel
This brings are total to: 18/500 games played, 4/50 new titles explored. Not bad for the first two weeks of the year.
Moving on, we have CardFight Vanguard–
First, the cards I ordered for my joke deck featuring Mike the Shipwright have started coming in. I was extremely excited to begin building and testing this deck, then I saw last night’s World Championship finals- Granblue vs Granblue. It was so boring to watch. And rather the champion cheated or not, he should have definitely been called out for the way that he was shuffling his deck (cards face up). Both two of those things are a strike against me wanting to continue the construction of this deck. However, I have to remind myself that I am building neither a G1 or G2 Rush deck, so it hopefully won’t play out that boringly.
Then our order of Revival Collection Vol. 1 came in. The pulls were pretty solid. We pulled several cards for the clans we actually play. The RRR pulls were:
I got in 3 games of Vanguard in as well. Sadly, I went 1-2. My brother’s Gear Chronicle deck is just too solid versus either of my Link Joker or Shadow Paladin builds right now.
Moving on, we have received our first KickStarter project of the year: Masmorra: Dungeons of Arcadia–
This was definitely a pleasant surprise to say the least. We talked a little bit about it here. Now to sleeve up all those beautiful cards and start playing.
Then we move on to Star Wars Destiny–
The game is officially the new “hotness” in the tabletop gaming world. Product is so scarce that $2.99 boosters can fetch $15. Anyways, demoed the game on Wednesday after being told how fantastic it is. Truth be told, it is rather enjoyable.
Luckily the a couple days later a local shop got in a couple of starters while another a box of boosters.
Finally, the Batman Miniatures Game-
Unfortunately the weather was not holding up well enough to primer this week, nor did I get an opportunity to assemble any of the others we have. I think I need to take some time off my normal job just to assemble the rest.
Well, that was our week. Happy gaming!
