Hi all,

First of all, I need make you all aware of a programming glitch that we’ve just found! The previously published list of players’ 1337 points only counted tournaments from November to March 13th.

Fear not! We have found and remedied the problem. Thank you to all the players that made me aware of the situation. Updated points as of March 25th can be found here.

I wanted to get a Blarg to Terence this month, but constant work on Holy Heist (templating, playtesting, art finalization, etc.) prevented me from doing so. As such, my blarg to you all is this:

Thank you for supporting our game while I spend time on Holy Heist instead of blarging. Much work. Little time. Much work. Such set. Almost done. Wow.

Have Fun, Play Spoils!

Hi all,

Thanks again to everyone who have already submitted their designs for the sleeve contest. We’ve gotten a tremendous response! The deadline is still a few days away, but make sure you have yours in by March 1st.

March is coming soon, that means spring, which is just about my favorite time of year. But much more important than Spring, to me this March means the completion of our New Player Pack, and alongside this, production will also be finishing up our new Demo Decks package. So this will be a perfect start for new players and for new stores everywhere. Not only will the Ambassadors and new stores have an easy entry into The Spoils and an easy set-up for new players, but the new players will also have an easy starting point as they can just buy the New Player Pack. The pack will consist of a cool cardboard box with room for several decks or a small collection, five decks of forty cards, rules, and some extra foil cards to spice things up a bit. The people who have already seen them tells us that this is just the product they have been waiting for – so we look very much forward to bringing this to the market!

Holy Heist is also nearing the point where we will be putting this into production. Still remains the work of setting up the cards in the right templates, finishing up the packaging design (almost done), getting first digital proofs from the printer of both cards and packaging (later on physical proofs), and then of course pushing the big flashing GO button!

The first art assignments for the next set after Holy Heist have gone up, which means the artists have begun work on An Ungodly Mess. There are still many more art assignments to be put up there, but it feels great to get started on this already.

Enjoy the springtime!!

The Spoils has a lot of rules. As the former Judge of Great Justice, it was my job to make sense of all the rules so that they would make sense to all of you. Although that is no longer my job, I always keep up on potential rules modifications/changes so that I can be the best judge I can be, plus I like to give my input whenever it is wanted.

What we judges often forget, however, is how the rules are interpreted by our players. I always strive to consider how every level of player will look at the rules, but even that thought process may lead me to miss something that I should consider.

With this in mind, I’m curious: what parts of the rules do you think need to be clarified?

After careful consideration, we’ve decided that January 2014 will be the last month of Afternoon Saturday Spoils.

But fear not! Spoils L33T Gaming (SLG) is replacing it immediately.

Gamers game. That’s what we do. We play games, sometimes competitively, sometimes for fun, and sometimes just because it’s what we do. Usually, we play a lot of different games, although our focus is usually only on one or two. Personally, my main game is The Spoils, but I play quite a few other games myself.

2013 has officially come to a close and it is time to look forward to an exciting 2014. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I think 2014 is going to be a big year for The Spoils. Why? Because 2013 was awesome and I can only imagine how much better 2014 is going to be.

Let’s review 2013 shall we?

December has been absolutely crazy for me. My non-Spoils job has been ramping up the hours due to a lot of holiday planning and events, which is my lame excuse for not keeping the website updated with content as frequently as you are all accustomed to.

The other reason the site has been lacking a bit is Spoils related, but to be honest I’m not sure if I’m allowed to talk about it. What I can say is that there has been a considerable amount of cosmetic work being done behind the scenes and I have been a part of the process. All of this cosmetic work should be wrapping up soon, though, so expect some exciting new changes!

I’ll be back to posting regular article content when the New Year kicks off next week. I have two articles, as well as two more Blargs, for you guys in the upcoming week to round out the year.

As far as written content for The Spoils, 2013 was a tremendously successful year and I’m looking forward to what 2014 has in store. I already have a a couple of great things lined up for you guys, so be sure to check with this Blarg again next month for some news about that.

For now, though, I must depart as I get ready for my favorite day of the year.

Merry Christmas to you all!
