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

My return to The Spoils! Welcome to The Spoils!

Hello everyone, I’m glad to see you all back here now that I have an announcement to make. Well actually most of you already know that I’ve been talking about The Spoils lately and that I want to support this game and its growth. And like the honest man I am, this first post on The Spoils is about my very “return” to the game, even though I have been staying somewhat updated at the official forums and was just sitting down with the vast rule document and judge guidelines (you need to read up on those once in awhile), I feel ready to return.

I recently applied myself to volunteer as an article writer or “columnist” for the The Spoils website. The very first thing I was asked to write about, or hinted that I could write about, was my local meta game. At this time I think Bizze is better suited for that task, seeing as they have more constructed tournaments in his area. Where I live we’re crazy about limited formats, sealed and drafts is the way we love to go, it’s also a great way to get new players in to the mix. They sit down, see the cards, build a deck and get a small collection to start of their The Spoils careers.

So, no, this is not an article I’m doing for The Spoils site, this is all for you my Nurgle fans. I don’t think a personal note about me coming back would be very interesting for them so instead, I welcome you all to the spoils!

Well thank you Nurgle, but what is this marvelous “The Spoils” that you talk about?

The spoils is one heck of a card game, it got humor, great game play, sweet community and lately some awesome tournament support. Arcane Tinmen is really doing their best to give something to their players, and I must say their doing a great job and deserve a huge player base. Just like many other card games, they have weekly tournaments known as Afternoon Saturday Spoils (ASS for short). Where you have to chance to get some sweet promos, meet up with people, try your new decks and just have a great time.

If you’re familiar with different competitive card games, you will probably recognize the style of the The Spoils quickly, it’s taken the best from several different systems and put it together to the best possible experience. If you ever played Magic The Gathering for example, you know that at times you will draw a lot of mana and flood your hand, or vice versa. In the spoils you instead use a resource system where any and every card in your hand can be used set facedown a recourse on the field. There is more to it of course, but for an example that will do for now.

As you know I’m currently located in Gothenburg Sweden (or now you know), and for all of you that are Swedish and hit this blog, if you’re interested in the spoils hit me with an email (contact information at the top of the blog) or just a comment to let me know that you are out there. The rescue missions for the game may have been a great success but it’s now time to help the game grow in my local area. Wish me the best of luck everyone!

By the way, if to write an article on The Spoils, where should I start? What should I write about? I’m really taking a long deep look for inspiration and I probably need to get in to the constructed game again to really feel what I can and want to write. Well until next time, stay safe, look up the spoils and have fun!

Cya soon!
