Card Games at PAX

edited August 2008 in PAX Archive
So about card games at pax. Im guessing the big ones like Magic, WoW, and pokemon will be there, but i'm wondering about some of the less played ones (i.e. the ones I play)

So I think a TCG topic would be a great way for people to find others who like the obscure card games.



i'll go first. Hi, im looking for other people who play WWE Raw Deal and Doomtown

    I still haven't run into anyone who plays WoW TCG. I have a deck packed with a bunch of cool cards.

    Like...

    Mangi Bronzebeard (King of the Dwarves)
    Jaina Proudmoore
    Thunderfury

    etc

    etc

    I never said that the deck was good however....

    I had a good Yu-Gi-Oh deck, and then I sold a bunch of cards...

    and then promptly spent that money on video games.

    I've been out of CCGs in general for a long time, but would love to bring a Magic deck or two if I thought I had half a chance against anything built from sets released in the last oh... ten years or so. Would there be any interest for a little nostalgia play, say nothing later than Tempest/7th edition or something?

    Anyone know where we can find the latest rules on the WoW TCG? With there being a TON of expansions, I don't know what's still fair game and what is not.

    I will probably bring at least a couple WOW TCG decks. I am really hoping they run some drafts though.

    I heard Doomtown was an incredibly awesome game. It went out of print though, right? I remember an old roommate of mine talking about that game, it sounded cool. Is there somewhere that one can likely pick up some Doomtown cards on the cheap? I'd be up for playing if I could find some cards at a reasonable price.

    I'll probably bring my copy of Infernal Contraption. I first tried it at the PP booth last year, and loved it. Now it's hands down the geekiest thing I can get my wife to play.

    I love Infernal Contraption I am going to have it for sure. In fact I might buy a second copy of the game mix the two decks for mega-games.

    I still have my Star trek Deck. Not that i remember how to play... Also have an old crappy magic deck from 3rd/4th edition. Wish i did not sell off all my good magic cards though.

    I also have a couple WoW starter decks, never played though. Heard it was similar to magic...

    I'll have spoils, maybe one battletech deck just for the hell of it, and one or two eve ccg's on me. Plus magic but that goes without saying. And quite possibly pokemon.

    I sooo know that ya'll are taking 'bout CCGs and whatnot...
    Spoiler:

    Anywho! Since back in the day before the Countdown finally hit to 31 days--now 29ish--someone brought up a "Classics Game" thread; I as well was thinking about classic card games. i.e. Canasta, Cribbage or War. Maybe Speed? California Speed? Go Fish. Crazy Eights. Spoons. etc.

    Ya'll get the drift I hope.

    I'd be down for a game of Spades... ooh, or Tripoley! =) Tripoley was like the trademark game of my extended family. Every time we get together, someone starts it... and that's all we do all night. My grandfather before he passed on two weeks ago had a gigantic vase FILLED with pennies for the game. =)

    Come to think of it, I wonder where that penny vase is. It must have like 100 bucks in pennies. =) lol

    Magic Cards at PAX. Be there or get a -1/-1 counter for every day you are not there.

    Seriously, though, it should be hilarious. I haven't played in years.

    Excellent ACC3SS! =) If I make it to PAX, I will be there! I may even try to re-assemble my 4 color Ink-Treader Nephalim deck. It's a lot of fun... luckily, most of the cards were cheap. I think I can re-assemble an even more ghetto version of it in time for PAX if the fates favor me in my attempt to get to PAX =)

    A friend that's going in my group has decks of Munchkin (Cthulhu and Bites), Falling, Fluxx, and Fluxx Zombies. To my knowledge, he's bringing all with him. My husband and I have a ton of mid-90s Middle Earth TCG cards, but at best if we bring any, it would just be one deck each. That is, of course, if we could agree on who gets to put the One Ring in their deck.

    Excellent! Anyone who has a magic deck, no matter how old or out of date, should bring it. I think pickup magic games are going to be a blast.

    The only problem with going in the tourneys at PAX is that they represent a huge timesink. I ended up playing magic all day saturday last year, and felt like I ended up missing out on a lot of other stuff.

    This year I think I'll just stick to random casual se- Games! I mean Games!<img class=" title=":lol:" class="bbcode_smiley" />
