Next week starts 800 points.
By popular demand there will be a Shadowfist event on Feb 13.
Shadowfist is the mile-a-minute, sword-clashing, butt-kicking, Uzi-spraying, boat-exploding, car-chasing, monster-crunching, Hong Kong cinematic action card game that is so epic it would take fourteen John Woos to film and a cast the likes of Jackie Chan, Jet Li, Chow Yun Fat and Michelle Yeoh. And that’s just in the first five minutes!
It’s like Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Hard Boiled, Drunken Master, Wing Chun, The Killer, Storm Riders, Heroic Trio, Iron Monkey, Supercop, Master Killer, Ballistic Kiss, and the rest of your favorite Hong Kong action films all rolled into one.
Tournament will be conducted in Final Brawl format. Each round will be 3-4 player multiplayer swiss (depending upon attendance and will have a 1 hour time limit), with match points to be used to determine winner and tie-breaks in the event of time being called on a game. Deck format is constructed decks with no restrictions (still no more than five copies of each card except for “No Max” cards).
Bob just sent me a note saying he’d like to start the game at 1 instead of 2 as previously announced.
Have arrived! If you need one set aside, please use our contact page.
We have 4 players, and one Catalyst rep fighting in tonight’s demo.
It looks like this might be a regular thing!
