Hiatus Ending Soon!

I just wanted to chime in and say that my hiatus from UtTG is coming to an end. I have been wanting to review games for some time now, and it does not help that I still have a stockpile of games sitting in my closet that I have been dying to play.

I will be reviewing my next game in a few weeks, and I should be posting a new entry this Wednesday addressing something that has been bringing a lot of Google searches my way.

I will be coming at this with a new game plan as well. I will be sticking with reviewing customizable and collectible games. More specifically I will be reviewing lesser known, indie, or just dead games.

Set 2 Unleashed!

Well, we can finally talk about the super secret set 2! Now known as The Final Battle, we have worked long and hard with James and Doug, as well as many of their fans to bring you a great product.

Go ahead and place your order now while the pre-sale is going on. If you do you will receive first edition cards and the Nerd and Critic cards from your decks will be in beautiful foil!

Geek Fight! Noticed in Japan

Well, I was checking our web traffic last night when we got a couple of hits from a site in Japan. I thought I would investigate, and of course because I do not have the proper character pack installed all I saw was a website of blocks. After running the page through a page translator (which did a horrible job BTW) I found out that we were getting hits from a game review blog. I thought this was very interesting.

I cannot properly tell if it was a good review or a bad review because of the horrid translation job that was done by Google, but there were a few parts of the review that give me hope that they reviewer liked some elements of our little game. The art went over well at least. Plus, the closing statement seemed nice from what Google was telling me.

Anyway, I find it refreshing to know that we are being noticed. I will provide a trackback URL for the blog, since I cannot place a comment on it without being a member of their blogger service (and translated pages pretty much disable the registration page, so I would be going blind). If the owner of that blog finds this one, this is Kalan "Charon" Vazquez and I would love for you to email me at if you have any questions.

Con Badges

I have been talking with a couple of cons about making not only custom hands for their cons, but their actual con badges. I might just have to come up with special discounted rates for cons. We will see where this little idea goes.

Next Set Release Date

Okay, so I do not actually have a date set, but things are moving in that direction. The timetable is set, and if everything works out we will have our big reveal at the beginning of next month with the presale happening on the same day. Here's hoping!

Set 2, 3, and 4 (plus more services from DDG)

Okay, so things are really starting to speed up here. I got a tour of a new printing plant, and I made a good enough impression that the company is bending over backwards to help us out. I guess having a high charisma score is good for something.

Anyway, the cards for set 2 are done, and we are just waiting for our partners to get us the info for the ad boxes before we get everything together to make the announcement of who we are working with. Of course, feel free to email me and I will tell you who we are working with. Just don't leak it.

We are also going to re-release set 1 in the new card format. This means anyone that acts now and buys some set 1 cards will own limited first edition cards. It is actually pretty tempting to make 1st edition cards the norm, since it was a successful tactic for the PokeMon TCG back when I was a kid.

So we have officially come up with the theme for set 3. This one is not going to be any big secret. Since we are going to be starting our con-tour about the time this set is ready, we are making Artist Alley our next set.

I also have an idea for set 4. I have approached the designers of a pretty fun browser based game to see if they would be willing to work in conjunction with us to produce a new set. They are thinking it over right now, but I think I have them in my clutches. BWAHAHAHA!

I guess the final thing I can talk about is the fact that we are going to hopefully start offering a print service for other card games. We will act as a middleman between ourselves and our super awesome, super secret printing connection. We will also offer several payment methods (including upfront payment and presales), and have other benefits available for those that work with us.

Oh, and before I forget, I also started building up alliances with other indie TCG/CCG design companies, as well as other types of game producers. Sure there are other associations out there, but they don't give the card gamers any love,
