Winter Clearance Sale!

Greetings and Happy Holidays everyone!

In 2016, we're moving out of our warehouse and using other methods to handle our shipping in the USA. However, this means that we have a lot of stuff sitting around that we're going to have to ship back to distributors or to our fulfillment center. In this case, we would prefer to be shipping most of that stuff out to you!

To move things out of the warehouse quickly, we have some really great deals available in our online store from now through the first week in January. Order quickly!

EXCEED Update from Europe

Here's an update on EXCEED from Brad, who's traveling across Europe and getting ready for Internationale Spieltage in Essen, Germany. I decided to make this a front page update, because there's a lot of cool info about EXCEED here! - JR

Hey Everyone! 

I’m writing my latest update for EXCEED from Europe, since I didn’t leave Josh quite enough material to cover a full three weeks. In a few more days, I’ll be in Essen Germany, for the International Spiel Fair, and then at last, home again and back to all of you to do some more work on EXCEED.

EXCEED Meet the Fighters: Gabrek

No fighting game is complete without a grappler, right? Gabrek is a massive heavyweight fighter who can tear apart any foes foolish enough to come close to him. He’s slow and extremely dangerous, with a bunch of cards and a character ability that make him extremely threatening at range 1.

Gabrek is a specialist at close range fighting, with a ton of extremely punishing and hard-to-beat range 1 moves. He has a lot of tools for getting into range 1, but these still leave openings for his opponent to respond in time to get out of his way, though it’s often expensive to do so. Thus, Gabrek fights with a combination of intimidation and control, picking carefully when to strike and when to look for a better position.

Gabrek’s main strategies revolve around getting to range 1, as well as using range 1 as a way to threaten opponents into suboptimal moves. Especially with some gauge, Gabrek is so dangerous that opponents often have no choice but to step back, making your range 2 and 3 moves especially useful. Gabrek also has a boost called Reach that allows him to extend the range of his most threatening moves out by one space, giving him a surprise for opponents who don’t spend enough resources to get out of his way.

Bring Gabrek to your tabletop by backing EXCEED, currently on Kickstarter!

BattleCON: Fate - Part 3

Here we are again with another week, the final week, of BattleCON Fate Previews! I hope you're excited about the new characters, and the new opportunities for the tournament roster!

Lord Eustace

  • Race / Gender / Nationality: Undead / M / Relecour
  • Style: Gambler - Use powerful stats and effects, but beware—mistakes may be deadly.
  • UA: Frostflow - Bolster your defenses with ice to soak up extra damage and retaliate.

Eustace is a skeletal fistfighter who bulks up his defense and offense by encasing his attacks in ice. Eustace’s Frostflow can be used as Soak, which combines with his high innate power ratings to make exceptionally strong trades against the opponent. However, using too little of this power can leave Eustace open to stuns, which will degrade his position considerably and leave him open to further attacks. Understanding and controlling the pacing of the fight will help Eustace players to maximize the potential of this ability.
