It is Day 2 of GAMA 2014 and we wanted to take a short break from the event to share a few photos. Two days, 240 demos, 5 hours on the show floor, and a 6 hour game night in progress, we are at the halfway mark!

We would like to take this opportunity to talk about the For the Glory! Booster packs and the future of Card Wars. When Card Wars was first being conceived, our only releases planned were the two recent Collector’s Packs, and a NiceLands Collector's Pack later this year.

The digital version of the game has also proved extremely popular. We are going back to print as quickly as possible.

A couple of housekeeping notes for the trading card community regarding the Revenge Season 1 Trading Cards, and the Archer Seasons 1 – 4 Trading Cards.
As many of you have noticed, the base set for the Revenge cards is quite large. This means that it isn’t likely to open a complete base set of the cards from one box. Here is a quick breakdown of why that happens...
Happy Thursday, trading card fans!
The trading card team has gone through some changes lately, and before we start talking cards, I thought it would be good to bring everyone up to speed.
