The World of Warcraft Trading Card Game has a lot of fun events coming up for you to visit this summer, and we want to make sure you won't miss a single exciting moment! Many of these events are run at your local hobby stores, so make sure you find out where to play so you can have fun, meet new friends, and get exclusive promo cards and playmats!
If you haven't noticed all of our great previews from our writers, volunteers, employees, and Affiliate sites, Tomb of the Forgotten is scheduled for release on June 12th. What set isn't complete without a Release Party to go along with it? Your local hobby stores that are signed up for Battlegrounds can schedule a Tomb of the Forgotten Release Party and play in a Sealed format event. Besides walking out with six booster packs from the last expansion of the Aftermath Block, you can also take home a special foil promo, Neferset Shadowlancer, while supplies last.
Facebook is a great way to stay connected to your play group and notify them of upcoming events! Even now, many Facebook World of Warcraft TCG groups are planning their Release Parties far ahead of time to get the best turnout they can. Yeti Gaming in Crestwood, MO has already put up information for their event, as well as our Champion of the Month's store, Skyhaven Games in Victoria, Canada. Don't miss out on getting attention for your events on Facebook, Twitter and other forms of social media.
Did you know you can also get another exclusive sneak preview of a Tomb of the Forgotten card from your local Champion of the Black Flame? They hold the power of Shiverspine in their hands, and the only place to get a first look at this card is live and in person from your Champion at your Battlegrounds store! Getting a first look at cards in upcoming sets is just one small perk of being a Champion of the Black Flame, and it's easy to sign up as long as you're willing to put in a little extra effort as a Cryptozoic volunteer!
Speaking of Champions of the Black Flame, signups for the Champion-run Draft Rally event, “Rise of the Champions”, closes today. If you haven't gotten around to applying for this event, do so here so you don't miss out on an exclusive playmat and promo cards! Not only do you get the chance to win as a Top 4 finisher, but all base Honor done by drafting between July 14th and August 31st will be doubled!
Wow, that was a lot of information! I'm glad you read this far! With all this talk about spoiling cards from our next set, I figured I may as well get in on the action and spoil my personal favorite from Tomb of the Forgotten, Nadina the Red. Did you know that many Cryptozoic employees manage to sneak their way into sets?and are just two of the many employees that have been immortalized over the years.
Nadina the Red is my character from World of Warcraft and holds a couple fun bits of trivia in the art alone. The red dragon whelp in the picture is a homage to the Alexstrasza gunslinging event I ran at Darkmoon Faires throughout 2011, and I wore a set of hand-made Paladin Tier 12: Immolation Regalia to Blizzcon 2011! Besides the amazing art, she's a great card to boot!
We hope you are looking forward to a great summer of Draft Rallies, Tomb of the Forgotten, Darkmoon Faires, and the CZE Tour!
