DOD, in a self contained format, was one of the best experiences I have ever played in The Spoils.
Greetings fellow players and fans!
As a fellow player and fan of The Spoils since right after its creation back in the ol’ Beta days, it is with great honor that I accept this title of Head Judge, Judicator of Luridia. I have been playing the game for nearly 10 years now, with a small break during the release of Shade due to moving and marriage and whatnot (oh, life!), and it’s an awesome privilege to get to contribute to the game in a way I love. Handling rulings!
With the upcoming release of the Decade of Deckadence and Gen Con just next week, it’s time for a new rules update!
“Patch Notes” is an article series explaining the purpose of recent rules changes. The attached PDF is a log of all such changes and the published rationale for each. Today’s installment of “Patch Notes” addresses the upcoming rules change merging the Void and Remove from Game zones and how this will be a guiding principle in all future design.

A letter from the Director of R&D addressing the recent change in Limited formats going from 45 card minimum decks to 40.
There has been a slight updated to the comprehensive rules. Limited decks are now required to be 40 cards minimum instead of 45. Your Faction is not included.

Announcing Victors Circuit Dallas, February 27-28!
The Spoils, in partnership with Alter Reality Games in the USA, is excited to announce the addition of the Victors Circuit to our VICTORS Organized Play Program! The Victors Circuit is your chance to compete at a higher level of tournament play. These regional-style events will feed into our North American Spoils Championship, to be held at Gen Con 2016. We will be announcing more events throughout the year, so keep an eye on the front page! Our inaugural event will take place in beautiful Orlando, Florida!
This is part 1 of my very late Gencon report. I will start by covering constructed and then in part 2 cover limited.
I will begin with an introduction to my deck and walk you through why I played it and my choices in the list.
In case you were wondering, the featured image this month is from the next set coming out. We figured why not start out this month’s announcement with a bit of Spoils humor and post an image of a giant majig wielding a hammer … for banning.
Stalling at it’s finest. Before R&D dissolved the banned list and created the Current and Chronicles Format system, Monty was the main threat. Most of the playing field was playing greed, and you could guarantee he was in the deck.
This deck focuses on taking apart your opponent’s deck and utilizing their best cards. With only one character in your deck, your opponent will have to focus on protecting their own characters.
Stolen God, this looks scary! Seed Saga gave us back enough dragons to make a themed deck that works. You only need to touch one more Rage resource, in order to deploy any card in the deck.
So Many Options
Seed Saga has been out for almost two months I’m convinced it has made The Spoils shine brighter than ever! I’d like to share my insight on how each trade has blossomed. Keep in mind, there are many wonderful cards with perfect illustrations and texts that could have made the cut. Better luck next time fellas….
We know details have been a bit scarce on Organized Play following the end of Season Three, but we want you all to know that more information is finally here.
I love previews. Especially the sort that makes you go “Oh wow!” There are tons of ways that a new card can give you that “Wow!” moment. It could be a huge character, or a tactic with an especially flashy effect, or a card that could potentially defeat your opponent single handed.
