Thread: Forgive me if this is silly...

    Forgive me if this is silly...

    But, every single set from every single intellectual property is allowed? That is really cool! In most games, even if they have more than one "standard" intellectual property type, such as comic books, they will have the "other" intellectual properties have restrictions in standard tournam that is really cool! In most games, even if they have more than one "standard" intellectual property type, such as comic books, they will have the "other" intellectual net play.

    It's really awesome this game isn't like that, as it epitomizes an almost libertarian sense of, "play what you wanna play and it's not your business to get offended over whatever intellectual properties someone else might like." Not to make it political, just trying to draw a funny comparison.

    Either way, although I'm super new and have won two games in my life, I can seen how this game isn't yet perfect but is so awesome with so much potential for growth; I guess I assumed that IPs would be separated, just because, but still, it's awesome that everything is welcome, and it's solely up to the player to choose how they'd like to play.

    I like this aspect of the game as well. Even when I used to play heroclix, things felt segmented. Pacific Rim and Star Trek didn't play well with others, etc.
    now I will say I do enjoy the occasional DC only or D&D only event, but the fact that the game is designed to be diverse is awesome.

    I'm more into the anarcho-socialist aspects of the game. We don't need WizKids to exist, but it'd be nice if you paid them to give me more dice.

    Oh my God you gave me the best idea, a sort of "May Day" set, with other famous anarchists that weren't a part of May Day, as well, such as Emma Goldman, Mikhail Bakunin, Sacco and Vanzetti, etc...

    Heck, we could even make Politics-Masters. The cards could only be one or two per team, and basically just support characters of some time. I mean, I guess you could have more than one or two, but there's no real hammering power in them, since they are up against super-powered people and all...

    I love that everything gets mixed too. I'm a big fan of that kind of stuff, just like Heroscape with its Valkyrs, vs. robots, vs. aliens, vs. colonial soldiers, vs. wolfmen, etc.

    I never thought I would reference YGO in real life and today I found myself looking at a dinosaur fossil and telling me son "I wonder how he compares to BEWD in size..." I love the idea that I can mix and match. Works well for the game

    Yeah, I could care less about Yu-Gi-Oh!

    And yet, I love the fact that we have multiple sets. The sign of an amazing game!

    I still think Yugioh is the most important set in the game. Compared to the other stuff that exists in dicemasters, yugioh is a kick in the teeth that demands attention. The art style is really different, the IP isn't something people normally think about, and it stands out as it's own thing. Not to mention it's given the game a plethora of powerful and diverse abilities. Knowing now that it was the first set designed for Dice Masters, it finally makes sense as to why it's a very balanced and creative set. I hope to see a new Yugioh set every year. Even though I love yugioh more than any other IP in DiceMasters currently, I still think it should be infrequent, just to help shake people out of their comfort zones every now and then. I'm glad people are starting to embrace the other IP's! I really want to play some DnD draft but I have to get my local playgroup to agree to it.

    I can't disagree. The fact that some had a very visceral reaction to it means that some cards flew under the radar... until someone gets beat in the face by one of them.

    Yu-gi-oh should be the most important set. It was actually designed 6 months before AvX, but it's release was held up because of licencing negotiations. That makes it the Dice Master's equivalent of Alpha.

    For more about the beginning of it all, check my article here.

    One of the great things about Dice Masters is that there are so many different ways to structure games. Ideally everyone can find the formats that they enjoy most and can find like-minded players.

    I personally prefer limited (draft, sealed, league) to constructed, and prefer single set constructed to unlimited (all sets) constructed, so I'm fine skipping YGO and the upcoming turtle one. Fortunately, my local group mixes it up but mostly leans toward single set limited.

    How dare you not mention Little Cup!

    But yes, the ability to make your own metas relatively easily is pretty fantastic.
