Way of the Fighter is a hard-hitting, high-jumping, leg-sweeping, fireball-dodging fighting-style card and dice game for 2 players. Featuring 10 unique fighters—each with diverse backgrounds and powerful skills and abilities—players go head to head, employing strategic actions to weaken one another. Rolling dice to determine attack speed and using cards to enact specific abilities and actions, players ultimately attempt to knock out one another to become the victor in this boardgame street battle! Way of the Fighter is available in two core sets; Way of the Fighter SUPER and Way of the Fighter TURBO. Expansion fighter decks are soon to follow with new techniques, new tactics, and new fighters that bring even more fun to the Way.

Way of the Fighter is a customizable card game that allows players the ability to create their own custom decks by swapping technique packs between fighters with matching combat styles. With numerous configurations available based on associated combat styles between various fighters within the expanding array of the game, players can test out new techniques and create even more unique configurations for their character. Flexible and fun, Way of the Fighter’s fast fighting gameplay mechanics and dynamic deck construction ensure it is great for novice and experienced players!

It’s time to train hard, throw down, and follow the Way of the Fighter!

Yu-Gi-Oh! Flames of Destruction this May

Flames of Destruction closes out the first Dueling season of the Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS era with a bang! This 100-card booster set will shake things up with new cards for established Deck themes, a brand-new Link Monster theme that can be played as its own Deck or spliced into existing strategies, the return of the Elemental Lords, and more!

Ib the World Chalice Priestess, known for her protective abilities, turns to the dark side and lays waste to her world with 6 incarnations of destruction! These new Link Monsters have flexible Link Materials that let you use them in any Deck, and each one has two abilities: one that you use when you Link Summon the monster and one that’s always active. These powers range from retrieving any Spell or Trap Card from your Graveyard to changing the number of cards you get to draw each turn. With some strategic card placement, you could be drawing up to 6 cards at the start of your turn instead of just 1!

To make the most of these abilities, you’ll want to keep your Link Monsters co-linked. If you do, you’ll get a refund on the cost of the new monsters’ one-shot abilities and their always-on powers will grow much stronger! Try combining these monsters with cards like Tri-Gate Wizard from Structure Deck: Cyberse Link or Firewall Dragon from Code of the Duelist to gain even more from co-linking your monsters.

For over 5 years, the four Elemental Lords have stood alone as keepers of some of the strongest effects allowed in Dueling. In Flames of Destruction, the fifth Elemental Lord finally arrives, along with the monsters tasked to guard their great powers from those who would misuse them! The newest Elemental Lord can only be Summoned while you have exactly 5 LIGHT monsters in your Graveyard and commands the power of Raigeki – the power to destroy all enemy monsters at once! This Elemental Lord is a great fit in Decks built using the LIGHT monsters from Structure Deck: Wave of Light.

On top of all that, Flames of Destruction is full of cards that are useful in any Deck and cards that elevate popular themes to new heights! You could find…

  • Powerful Trap Cards you can activate from your hand.
  • A new “Trap Hole” that banishes monsters face down.
  • A Spell that revives one of your monsters in a Zone a Link Monster is pointing to.
  • A new “Topologic” Link Monster that banishes all Spells and Traps on the field when a monster is Special Summoned to a Zone it points to.
  • A Dragon that can erase all the cards in a single column and then render that column unusable.
  • A “Trickstar” soloist that shrugs off activated card effects and inflicts big damage every turn.
  • An “Altergeist” spin on Tour Guide from the Underworld

… and more! This last 100-card booster set of the 2017-2018 Dueling season is poised to heat things up all summer long!

The Flames of Destruction booster set contains 100 cards: 48 Commons, 20 Rares, 14 Super Rares, 10 Ultra Rares, 8 Secret Rares.

More Marvel Dice Masters Team Packs Revealed

Earlier today, WizKids announced they’d be changing up the release of Dice Masters with the addition of campaign boxes. The first to be released, as of now, will be Marvel Dice Masters: Avengers Infinity. In the announcement it was mentioned that we’d be seeing more Team Packs as well. Along with the campaign box, it looks like two of those will be released as well.

Set for release in May will be Marvel Dice Masters: Kree Invasion Team Pack and Marvel Dice Masters: Justice Like Lightning Team Pack. The first focuses on the cosmic side of the Marvel universe with Guardians of the Galaxy and Kree while the second features Thunderbolts.

The Marvel Dice Masters: Kree Invasion Team Pack looks like it’ll include Drax, Rocket Raccoon, Captain Marvel, Surpeme Intelligence, Mantis, and Groot, and more.

The Marvel Dice Masters: Justice Like Lightning Team Pack will include Atlas, Citizen V, Songbird, Hawkeye, and more.

WizKids Announces Big Changes for Dice Masters with Campaign Boxes

WizKids is shaking things up in 2018 for their popular Dice Masters game. The game has been available in various configurations including blind packs in “gravity feeds,” starter sets, Team Packs, and non-blind set releases.

Based on feedback, the company will be releasing more non-blind box sets dubbed “campaign boxes.” The first two will be Avengers Infinity and Warhammer 40,000. By shifting the focus of how players buy Dice Masters to non-blind product, they’re trying to lower the barrier to entry for fans who are interested in trying the game fresh or maybe exploring one of the IPs in the game they haven’t tried yet.

A Campaign Box has 48 different character cards that could be used to build hundreds of different teams for head-to-head thematic play right out of the box. Layer in 10 Basic Action Cards and the replayability seems limitless. Adding in a Team Pack or two will let players customize their teams even further, or replace one of the two entirely. A single Campaign Box has storage to fit over 300 dice and their matching cards; that’s more than 10 Team Packs you can fit above-and-beyond the Campaign Box’s original contents.

The new Warhammer 40,000 line already has two Team Packs announced, one for Space Wolves and the other for Orks.

The announcement also hinted at changes in the maximum number of dice for some cards.

There are plenty of characters that are powerful enough to be included on tournament teams without ever being used at 4 copies of that die. In some previous non-blind releases, cards had a maximum number of dice based on the configuration. This potentially held back some cards from seeing their maximum potential in tournament play even if it had no effect on others. Cards in Campaign Boxes are going to have the Max dice based on the game play, just like cards from boosters would.

Expect more variations than the usual four dice maximum for cards in the future.

Wizards of the Coast Reveals a Code of Conduct

The Magic: The Gathering community has been a bit introspective after harassment of a beloved member forced her to withdraw from the community. Wizards of the Coast has been looking at how to improve things, starting with a ban of some of the individuals behind the harassment.

After input from players, retailers, tournament organizaers, fans, and staff, the game company has revealed a “code of conduct” that will be hanging in game spaces soon.

The are still figuring out how to roll out the code with it likely being posted in stores soon.

It also allows something written players can post to and then use to contact the operator of stores, streams, play space, our tournament.
