Over the weekend we received an email from a newer player. In it they asked the following 3 questions so I figured I'd post the answers here (mostly cause I don't have access to email atm and I'd like public discussion on some of this stuff).
1. Are there any rule changes for limited formats?
In the span of the game's life time there's been a few rule changes for limited:
30 Card Decks, Play to 7 Battle Rewards
40 Card Decks, Play to 7 Battle Rewards
40 Card Decks, Play to 10 Battle Rewards
All variants allow you to play as many copies of a named card as you like (i.e. You may play 5 Naruto Uzumaki if you have them).
I'd always shoot for the last one if at all possible. This was the "original" format of the game before it switched to a 50 card deck.
2. How many packs do you get for limited play? What packs are best for limited play?
Usually it is 6 packs to make a 40 card deck for limited play. Sealed is usually a starter deck and 2~4 packs. For sealed packs, any set works although some are better than others (Will of Fire for example), but if you are going for Draft I strongly recommend Tournament Pack 1 or 2 combined with Will of Fire (as TP1 or 2 has lots of Ninjas and a few jutsu but no missions while Will of Fire has lots of generic cost Jutsu and dual colored playable Missions).
I'm curious to see what other community members think are the best packs/rules for limited play.
3. Is there a Two Headed Giant Format for Naruto?
No. But I would love if someone would make a rule set for one. The only other alternative formats to Block that I know of are Unlimited, Class Room Exercises, Draft, Sealed, EDH, and just regular Highlander.
