WizKids has just made an important announcement about Dice Masters! We suspected that rotation would eventually happen and now it is official. Starting on June 1, 2017, there will be two formats for Dice Masters – Golden Age and Modern Age. They also announced that Half-Elf Bard: Master Lords’ Alliance is banned from Modern Age events.
We think this is great for new players, because you won’t have to chase down those elusive older cards that are hard to find just to play competitively. Overall the game has become more balanced with the newer sets and we are having a ton of fun playing with the newer sets in our weekly events. We’ve also noticed that a number of the action cards in the new sets – Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles On the Halfshell and Iron-man/Warmachine Starter Set – are the same as some of the soon-to-be Golden Age cards, so veterans will still get to use many of their favorite actions in the new format.

We will be announcing next month’s Dice Masters events later this week so watch our store calendar for the upcoming goodness! Stop by this evening for a “Same Cost Constructed Event” or join the Chaos on Friday in our Marvelous Chaos Rainbow Draft.
If you want to find out more about Dice Masters, come to a free learn to play and casual meetup, every Saturday at 10:30 am. We’ll even let you take a team home with you!
Pandemic Legacy Season Two was announced by Asmodee this week at New York Toy Fair and is scheduled to arrive in Q3!
According to ICV2, “This stand-alone sequel, designed by Matt Leacock and Rob Daviau, is set 71 years after the plague ravaged humankind. The last fragments of humanity have lived in cities near the seas, on floating “haven” stations. But in the past few years, some of the cities have gone dark, and now a small group must venture onto land, not knowing what they’ll find. As a “Legacy” game, each 60-minute session changes the state of the board, affecting gameplay elements and narrative of the subsequent game. The game is for 2 – 4 players, ages 14 and up, and an average game takes 60 minutes.”

From the moment you walk into the agency, it becomes clear that this mission is serious. Bob is late, and when he arrives, he’s rattled. Sam is out of order, the techs haven’t sorted out the problem, and you’re forced to work with an old machine. All of this while you’re about to confront one of the worst temporal anomalies that Bob has ever seen…
It’s bigger than all of us!
Sorry Meeps, but we want our employees to be safe and sound, so we’re closed for the day. See you Tuesday!
There is lots to look forwards to in February if you are a Dice Masters player! WizKids is putting out 2 new products:
