      Stuart is right: episodes without an intro quote feel incomplete.

      Minor correction for Stuart - Angel: Inspiring isn't the cheapest sidekick pump. Green Goblin: Goblin-Lord from AVX is another 3 cost, and Phil Coulson: Inspirational Leader is a 2 cost shield from AOU (though he only buffs attack). All cheap commons though, and you can build a pretty sweet flying sidekicks team with those three cards.

      Regarding Rainbow Draft Weekend 2 - I actually would *not* select "Rainbow Draft Weekend 2" when searching on the WIN system. Many of the events are run by volunteers, and it's not always obvious to everyone that they should select that particular template for their event. I know there are up to 4 different stores in my area doing RDW2 events, but there's currently only one event in the system if you search by the "Rainbow Draft 2 Program."

      While this may be the case, I think its best if stores do use the designation since that is what WK has created the event for. And the players get the x2 points bonus!

      And you may want to encourage those stores to run them under that template, because I believe that is how WKs tracks who is and isn't running the events for future considerations of events!

      Oh, I definitely do. But it's not always something we as the player community can control. For some stores, Dice Masters is still lower on the totem pole, so while we might have gotten them to order the kit, they may be too busy with Eldritch Moon to make sure everything is correct in the system (or approve the eager volunteer to manage it for them). I'd just hate for players to miss out just because it wasn't in the system right, or for the store to see low turnout and conclude Dice Masters isn't worth their time.

      On the plus side, at least in our area, we have this problem partially because there are new stores running events that weren't before, because the local scene is growing!
