GenCon Netrunner Demo – recorded by teamcovenant.com

Hello Nurglings!

Some time ago I mentioned a game called Netrunner that is just being released. The game is released by Fantasy Flight Games and is a rework of an older game with the same name (if I remember correctly). It’s a LCG game much like Warhammer Invasion and if you’re interested check out the video below for a tutorial run of the game.

Hope you enjoyed!

Until next time Nurglings, take care.
Cya soon!

The Spoils at Gencon! (info and what not)

Hello everyone, just to give some extra publicity to this awesome game and what they will be doing at Gencon, I’m doing this sweet post for you guys. There’s a bunch of fun things that will be going on and be sold at Gencon so be sure to check them out while they are there! You don’t know much about the spoils? Well let’s just give you this little flavor then.

The Spoils is one awesome card game that takes place in one twisted fantasy world filled with, sex, gore, violence, soldiers and cuthulu inspired beats! It’s a mix of the best from both WoW TCG and Magic The Gathering. You should really take a look at this game if you love any of those games.

To check out any and all info about the even you should go to thespoils.com

First of all, some info about the open booze draft:

Quoted from Will Clark @ thespoils.com

Due to a generous donation from Doc, there will be an Open Beta Booze Draft Thursday August 4 at 11pm.

The winner gets a bottle of Macallen12 year old Scotch!!!

The Cost will $10 and will be limited to 16 players.

4 packs of Beta will be used
We will be using Open Beta rules with the text of the card being correct. No 1st edition errata.

I look forward to seeing everyone at Gencon.

This event will not appear in the Gencon program, so there will be no prereg for it. First come first serve. 18 to play 21 to win*

They will also be selling playmats with art from not yet released cards, the one below here is just one example of the 6 different variants.

Quoted from Will Clark @ thespoils.com
Good news everybody!!!!

The Spoils will have a great selection of merchandise available at Gencon. We will be selling 6 unique playmats containing Seed 3 artwork, special t-shirts, and pewter micromajig tokens.

If you buy all 6 playmats you will get a special playmat not available for purchase.

And now to the general information, and a huuuge chunk of it:

It’s Gencon Time Again!!
Gen Con will be opening up for registration for events at Noon (US Eastern time) on May 1, 2011.
Now I could write something extremely hilarious and witty but you, The Spoils player, are just going to skip it and move directly to the events.
So to appease my audience I instead immediately give you the 2011 Spoils Gencon Event List
Enjoy 😉
Will Clark, your OP Director.

** Gencon Special **
Meat Exchange
The banning of Meat of the Mountain destroyed many players’ hopes and dreams for constructed domination.
To help alleviate the pain of the loss of your meat, we will be exchanging your copies of Meat of the Mountain for any ASS promo that has been released to the General Public. This will only go on while supplies of ASS promos last.
You can receive a non-foil version of any ASS promo for a non-foil copy of Meat of the Mountain. You can receive any foil ASS promo or foil alternate art dual resource for a foil Meat of the Mountain.
