Plans for Florida SJC fell through, but rest assured, I will be attending the PA SJC along with my full CT Crew. Since this is the exact format now that will be for the SJC, a lot of testing has begun.
On top of that Resident Evil Alliance launched this weekend, and I was quick to pick up my reserved copy as well as the playmat and foil Infected Wesker from the demo kit. I introduced three people to the game using a mixture of cards from both sets, and we played Story Mode, taking out the characters that only really work in Partner Mode (Josh, Jill (BA), Hunk, etc). Needless to say, as has been the result of every time Patrick or I have introduced someone to this game, they loved it. The first few turns were a bit rough with people learning the basic mechanics, but by the end of the game, they were rolling through the combined Masion and slapping down action chains like the best of us. A word or warning though, if the Los Illuminatos Monks (Or whatever they're called), don't show up in the first half of the game, expect a scenario that the three remaining of us (one person died enough to be out of the game) ran into. We all had a stack of about 17 infected, giving the Monk +85 Health and +85 Damage, making him a 100 Health 105 Damage brute. And with everyone packing at least two Uroboros Infections in their deck (I personally had 3, yay Steve Burnside!), exploring with less than 130 damage at the minimum became a game or Die or Don't Die.
So I noticed I went off on a huge Resident Evil tangent. Pat, we should make this a Resident Evil blog. =\
I'm pretty sure that most of you didn't come here for my ramblings though, and moreso for the preview. So, here we go.
First, a bit of back story on this card.
1) There is an ERRATA for the card, which I will include under the card.
2) This card is rumored to support a future theme (as in Set 22).
3) I actually like this card.
ERRATA: When this Ninja is put in play, you can draw 1 card for each "Brush" and Ink Summon Ninja you have.
