Last month was the release of the new MTG set (Dragons of Tarkir) and after a successful and busy pre-release and release weekend it doesn't stop there as this month we host our PPTQ Milwaukee and Dragons of Tarkir Game Days.
Well April is another busy month for the shop which means I'll not likely be playing many games however I am looking forward working the events. This month we have Netrunner, Doomtown, Pokemon Sneak Peak, PPTQ Milwaukee, International Tabletop Day, Cardfight Vanguard Sneak Peek, the X-Wing regional and much more! In the odd time I have free however I am hoping to play Ivor the Engine, Seven Wonders and diving into reading the newest D&D 5th Edition Book Princes of the Apocalypse.
Star Wars: Armada was released last month and I have been playing it almost non-stop in my free time! You can check out my review of Armada on this blog. April will see the release of the first wave of expansions for the game, giving the Rebels their first medium sized ship, and the Imperials their first small ship. Both fleets will receive new admirals, upgrade cards and fighter squadrons (I personally cannot wait for the fighters!) All these things will add variety to the game that wasn't available straight out the core set box.
Of course, I'm still looking forward to our X-Wing Regional Championship on Saturday 25th April.
And just in case you're asking “does this guy talk about anything else but Star Wars?” I'm really excited for the latest releases for The Lord of the Rings Card Game by FFG. The latest saga expansion, The Treason of Saruman expands upon the campaign available in The Black Riders and The Road Darkens, and sees us act out the story of Aragorn from The Two Towers. There will also be the deluxe expansion to start off the next cycle of adventure packs: The Lost Realm. Here we take on the role of the Dunedain Rangers in the Wilds of Eriador. I cannot wait!
