Be sure to check out the ‘Top 8’ section above to see the results of the 3 GP’s that happened over the weekend! With that let’s go into the news.

GP Collinsville:
Oscar and Colin from Team ARG attended GP Collinsville! While neither did really good, we did have a lot of fun and will have a small vlog about our journey coming out soon alongside the Podcast Interviews. You also might have caught Colin on the tail end of Day One’s livestream of the games! So be on the lookout for that podcast and vlog in the future!

TSW 2nd Print Run:

So the second print run of Time Spinning Witch is out and about now! If you haven’t already, ask your locals if they have any boxes that you may want to get. There are a couple problems you should know going into it before buying though.

Firstly, it appears that people are having problems with code cards. Anywhere from a couple, to more than half of code cards might not work in a single box. The way to remedy this currently is simply to email support at Force of Will with said problem to help remedy it.

Second problem is the print quality (again). People have been reporting lower quality holos as well as almost non existent texturing on the cards. This was a problem before with second print runs, but it was assumed after the disaster of the first print run, they (the print company) would attempt to do at minimum similar, if not higher quality printing. 

I’d love to know one day why the huge switch in print companies, after several not great quality sets. It probably comes down to finances, however this hurts the main pull of the game, which is it’s art and card quality. That’s something you should keep investing in if you want people to keep noticing and coming to this game from others.

Rulers/Factions revealed:

A new article came out last week that went over the next cluster and what to expect! I highly recommend checking out the whole thing in the link below:

Highlights of the article for the factions are:

We have the Country of the Sun, Minerva that is Norse Mythology with Odin and light colored probably.
Moonlit Paradise, Lunar Heaven which is Greek Mythology and probably light as well.
City of Mirage, Sandora which is Egyptian Mythology and red.
Land of Fiery Ambition, Kunlun which uses Chinese Mythology and red.
The Knight’s Castle in the Sky, Sky Round is the Knights of the Round Table and Deus Ex Machina and blue.
Forest of the Lost, Misty Woods which is Norse but with Loki and blue as well.
The Village of the Spirited Away, Kouga which uses a traditional Japanese worldview (ninja cats) and is green.
The Forgotten Sanctuary, Lost Isles which uses Indian Mythology and is green as well.
Ruins of Neverending Rain, Rainruins that uses Abrahamic looks like with Satan and is black.
Bottomless Chasm of Death, the Abyss which uses Hel and Lich and is black also.

That’s your run down of the factions! For more details visit the website!

Ruler League Promos:

We got our look at this month’s promos! Pretty interesting direction they took Thought control. Definitely very colorful. But I really like the looks overall of them and look forward to collecting both!

Sherry Ban:

Could we be getting a Sherry ban? For our thoughts as well as the thoughts of various people including DM073, Rob (who runs US tournaments) and more check out our smaller podcast this week! But it sounds like the company might end up taking action after this most recent tournament. 

Both Rob and Jeremy confirmed that there is at least talks in the air about it. It’s basically in the hands of the company now, and we will most likely find out within the next week or two if that is a reality.

Asia Championship:

So the Rachel promo we had talked about before on the News is part of the Asia Championship in Guangzhou. I thought I’d include what all the prizes look like for the event. This includes A playmat, 2 different sleeves, the Rachel promo, and 2 side event playmats that I really like. Check them all out below!


Lastly if you are a Patron our Playmat Giveaway is about to roll! If you want to find out if you won check out the Video News or just check your private messages on Patreon!

That’s all the news for today. Have fun!
