• WizKids Fan Appreciation Live Report from IsaacBV

    First session is officially over, and our TRP guys have left for a long-awaited food break. Thanks so much to @IsaacBV and @Shadowmeld for attending and congrats to them for placing! Looking forward to Worlds tomorrow!

    Dean's (@AlleyViper) world champion card will be out this year

    Foils in packs for GA/TF!!!

    Set rotation: "It is fair to say it is on the horizon we just dont when it will be yet. It is a ccg, so set rotations will happen."

    (Talking Heroclix and Attack Wing stuff at the moment, waiting for more DM info)

    No starters for GA confirmed.

    Dr strange drops costs of action dice. TMNT 2 will have plastic lid. Someone suggested including 2 and they said "Not a bad idea."



    DnD RDW participation Strahd. Top 4 kobold alt art, top 2 paladin alt art, top 1 magic missile alt art.









    Rainbow Draft Weekend 2016 = July 16-17



    2 sets to get Max Dice for Dr. Strange. MSRP $9.99



    TMNT 2 also not collectible.



    WIN will have customized Avatar Profile Pics (different than Gravatar/FB I guess...)

    WIN will be doing more with "Achievements".




    Isaac sporting a blue Legendary shirt and TRP pin posing with the Nefarious Geneticist himself, @Shadowmeld!

    UPDATE 1: There will be 2 events held back-to-back to accommodate everyone. TRP Staff are in the front.

    @isaacbv will be attending the WizKids Fan Appreciation event tonight, and we will be posting whatever info we can here. Keep checking back for updates!

      I know right? If they sold it with max dice, id pay $15 for the set. Now ill have to buy 2 sets and have extra cards that will probably end up collecting dust.

      I don't understand giving 2 dice per card in the Doctor Strange packs. Charge more and do max dice.

      I believe it's an entry point/price point issue. It's harder to get new players to buy a $20 starter (2 dice per card mind you) than it is to get a $10 "new age starter." It's $20 for max dice with none of the ancillaries, but it's a great way to get new players in. And it won't be the way that every set will be released. It'll be interesting to see if it functions they way they're hoping.

      But it's not even a starter, you can't play the game with just that pack.

      You can play a 4v4 game with no BAC's, which is a great way to start teaching the game.

      I'll be happy to donate Sidekicks. I think I almost have enough for everyone in Columbus.

      Note, I was corrected on the DnD RDW prizes, top two will get Paladin, not bard alt art.

      Any word on when to expect the RDW 2 store list? It is a month away after all.

      Is everyone aware that July 16-17 is also the MTG Prerelease. This is nationwide. Every game store is going to be full of MTG players. My store has said that there will be no room for any other events. RDW will not be happening here. This is going to be a problem nationwide. Spread the word. Maybe WK will reschedule. Please Wizkids!!

      I asked at the presentation, and was told that the Dr Strange set comes with max dice, ie they are all max 2.

      All the cards shown clearly say Max 4. Misprint maybe?
