FOW News! Promos, and Casters Preview!
Colossal Ruler is Promo!?:
Robert Hebert posted that he had just received this shipment in full of Kaguya Colossal Rulers! This is the ruler that the only physical way to get it was by buying 3 booster boxes all at once. This caused a huge outcry in the community, to which the company said they were going to come up with a new solution.
Well seems like we are getting it! I asked Robert to confirm if these were part of the Buy 3 box requirement or their own separate thing, to which he replied “Separate *Wink*”. So this is exciting news! The company was able to turn that around super quick to make sure the players will have access to the ruler. The requirements for it are still unknown (is it a buy-a-box, a game promo, etc), but he promised details will be coming soon so we’ll keep you updated!
There has been a date/location change for a GP! So Robert (the US head of events) made the announcement that Force of Will GP Denver will be changed. Originally it was at Denver Comic-Con. They said due to badge prices, inflated hotel rates, etc they changed the date and location.
Address : 700 14th Street Denver, Colorado 80202
In case you missed it, TSW is getting a second (and not mis-printed) print run! This is very good news, and we have a more exact date now. It will be hitting stores sometime near the end of May! Will still be the same flimsy booster boxes, but at least we will have normal rulers! And hopefully the cards will be a bit better quality (or at least have better quality control).
We got a look at the upcoming Wanderer Promo! This time through a leak, which is pretty cool if you ask me. The art is gorgeous as well. Really excited about this one!
Misprint Ruler Delays:
Just a quick thing we have noticed is that the delivery of the replacement rulers seems to be taking a crazy long time. If you don’t know, when you pull a ruler out of TSW that is a mis-print you send it in to an address and they’ll mail you back the corrected version of said ruler.
However this process seems to be taking a much longer than expected time. Myself and Oscar for example have not received any of our rulers back (Oscar sent his over a month ago, and myself about 3 weeks ago). We’ve talked to people on Youtube and Discord who have waited similar, if not longer times to no avail. There was one case of a person saying that they kept having their stuff lost in the mail apparently.
This all is quite frustrating honestly, because when you send that mis-print off you literally do not have access to that ruler for gameplay. For example, technically I don’t have Aimul legally while I wait for it to come in.
I’m not sure why there is such a delay, outside of FOW not delegating enough resources to the venue that is handling this distribution, or something along those lines. I think it’s clear that this was not handled as well as it could have been (such as in foreign countries with ruler packs). I hope this gets sorted out and back up to speed soon, because at this rate it would have been better, for example, for me to have not bought a ruler/mailed it, and rather just waited for the 2nd run of TSW to come out and buy the ruler/box then. Then it is quite possible I’d be getting that ruler around the same time too.
So Casters posted an article going over their past sets, the set coming out, and hints at things to come for future sets and promos! It’s a pretty interesting read. I’ll go over the highlights below, but if you want to read the whole thing just click here:
