Announcing Victors Circuit, UK

Here at Chaos Cards, we are official distributors and supporters of the quirky, irreverent TCG The Spoils, which means we get to do fun stuff like send out event packs to stores, run demos at conventions, and arrange big organized play events! With the Victors’ Circuit set of OP events kicking off in the US, we decided it wasn’t fair that the Americans should get all the fun, so we’ve set up our own – and hopefully the first of many – Victors’ Circuit Tournaments over here in the UK! Reserve Sunday 13th March 2016 in your diaries, as the first stop of our circuit kicks off then.

Rare Drafting: Heist Edition

Rare Drafting: Heist Edition

Greetings fellow Spoilers! So as of this reading I have no doubt that most of you have called in sick, locked the doors, and told loved ones to stick it where they would have things stuck because April 10th, my friends, was Holy Heist day.  I, myself, have told my significant other that while I love her, I’m not in Spoils love with her, and even though now it seems like that was a mistake I believe we will look back on this time not as a roadblock in our relationship, but rather the building of the strong foundation that our marriage rests upon.  Plus, I’m sure all will be forgiven when I speak incessantly on the new combos I’ve discovered, but I digress. I want to talk again today about the moment when the planets align and the rare card in the pack is worth drafting on its own merits.  In the previous article, I mentioned cards that could or should direct your drafting following that pack, cards like GGG or Samuel Gristwalter.  But forget those tired Shade and 2nd Edition card; it’s Heist time. The one thing I noticed, and you will too, is that MANY of the rare cards in Heist are very good and worth grabbing.  The bummer being is that they are costed appropriately (I know, right) or they have a high threshold, meaning they will direct your draft, locking you into pulling cards from the same trade in order to best make use of your target threshold – not unlike the previously mentioned cards.  There are, however, three rare cards that I believe...
Spoiler! The Primitive Tribes of Thabbash Faction

Spoiler! The Primitive Tribes of Thabbash Faction

“Hampus, what faction should I use?” “The Tournament Faction of course. It is a lot better than the ones from Seed.” “What about the new one from Holy Heist?” “Wait what? Is there a new faction? Show me, now!” For the first time let me present to you, the second new faction card from Holy Heist: The Primitive Tribes of Thabbash Faction cards are what makes The Spoils so awesome. It’s the card that lets you use your resources to draw cards or play more resources and it is also the card type with the most potential for innovation in future sets. Let’s start by comparing this card to the Tournament Faction. First off, you will start with 1 less influence, but that won’t make a huge difference in the majority of your games. You will draw the same amount of cards in the start of the game and you will have the same basic rules as on the Tournament Faction. The first major difference is that you will start with one face-down resource (obsession in this case) and only one face up resource. This means that you will be one threshold “behind” and as I see it you have 3 options with your resources: Play mono (only cards from one color). This will be the most consistent as it will hit high threshold faster than the next two options and you can play a lower amount of resources. Start with the face-down obsession and one other staple resource (your splash color) and then only play one kind of resource into your deck. This is also consistent but you won’t...
