Got our BT8 preorder in today, and it was a decent pull. Also got the starters plus the entire rest of the set ordered. I considered getting some other expensive cards that have fallen in price, but I think I'm gonna have to hold on those a bit longer - we're still talking $10-20 cards in playsets. Hopefully their prices will continue downward; maybe rotation will finally hit and some of these will be affordable.

Gotta think about what needs updating. I think this is the shortlist;

There are a couple other neat bits or buildarounds that might be worth investigating, and Veemon Armor looks like it could be fun. Several of the Veemons are tied up in Blue/Green Imperialdramon though.

Next set on the horizon is EX2, which we have to get because it's Tamers themed. After that I'm mildly interested in BT9 - X-Antibody plus the remaining Armor digivolves that didn't fit here. I might have to be much more conservative post-EX2, though, if only because childcare eats up so much of our budget. Hopefully my wife will be moving up the ladder at her job, and it sure would be nice for me to get a cost-of-living raise…

In other news, lots of Jurassic Park things happening. Dr. Sattler vs. T Rex finally shipped, and there've been reports of copies of the JWMG in the wild, in Europe at least. Hopefully that'll come here soon too. That'll be fun to review, but I'd like to trick it out with some tokens and sleeves, and I already covered finances.

I'm hoping we hear more about MonPoc soon too.

I got my pledge for the Hellboy RPG Kickstarter today. To put it shortly, I'm not impressed. The fulfilment company that was used was bottom-barrel stuff - my box had an open end covered with tape, the books loose inside. It was missing my dice, too - whether because they fell out or were just never put in I don't know. Finally, the book itself is chintzy - the cover's a bit flimsy-feeling, the binding doesn't feel solid, and one of the pages of my copy was pre-creased.

I've emailed Mantic support, but considering it's Friday and they're 5 hours ahead I will not hear back until Monday at the earliest. Hopefully I can get those dice, or maybe even a replacement core book, but honestly I'm not expecting much. Might even just box these up and call it a day. So disappointing.

Update 2022.06.02: A couple days ago I got a shipment directly from Mantic with replacement dice and a new copy of the core book. I wish I hadn't had to ask for them, but that's good CS and I'm much happier with the campaign as a result. I still think the game and especially its layout work was half-baked - the stat blocks are horribly ugly and not very table-friendly, for example - but it'll be a good browsing book and Hellboy reference at the least.

I spent last night making a few more decks - Red Shoutmon Blitz, Blue Omnimon, Green Insectoids, Black Cyborg Blockers, and Purple Trash. I'll work on deck techs for these soon. I'm still looking forward to a black Ouryamon buld, but that's gotta wait until mid-May, probably.

I spent some time updating my decks, in light of BT6, EX1, and some of the promos I've gotten. I haven't had a chance to test these (or Eosmon) yet; I hope to be able to soon. As a reminder, most of these decks already saw some modifications from their original listings.

I've been playing some Endless Legend lately and it's been really fun. My first proper game since I've started used Vaulters, though I think I'm going to need to abandon it - I didn't make efficient tech choices, I didn't prioritize military development, and my neighbor was the Cravers so I really shouldn't have done that. Last couple of turns Cravers were rolling me.

Gotta decide who to run next - Broken Lords and Drakken look to be the most interesting right now, but Ardent Mages and Morgawr also look fun. Then there's Endless Space 2, Kingmaker, and Jurassic World Evolution 2, but I'm trying to focus on one game for now.

We got some new artwork from Jack Clark, so I ordered some more playmats. This time we included overlays for the card game - two with custom work, and two with the standard options Inked provides.

Aquilamon and Repamon Plesiomon and ExVeemon

The Aquilamon and Repamon ones are for me and my wife, respectively. The other two are for some friends of ours. I did notice a few minor graphical mistakes I made in preparing the ones for my wife and me - the "Player 2" banner has a vertical line in the former and an extra shadow on the latter. I may order a fixed replacement for mine in the future if I make another order from Inked - I have some discounts that could help to offset it - but it's subtle enough that I can ignore it otherwise.

I also got some custom dashboards for Godtear that I designed, but those need to be cut out yet.

EX1 Booster Boxes

EX1 is finally here! I've been excited for this set for a long time. Looking forward to cracking this open and tweaking most of my decks. In particular Vee Jamming may get a solid once-over - I might switch it to a blue-green Imperialdramon build instead.

I recently got a gaming laptop. It's nice having something that can reliably run games. Gonna be on a 4x trip here soon with Endless Legend I think.

I also built a new deck in Arena. Neoform plus Sea Gate Stormcaller is a sweet combo.

I got that fully-printed Magi-Nation collection I was pining for, so now I need to put it to some use. For decks, at least to start with, I have the Limited precon lists and the decks from the Prima guide to use, but that only covers through Awakening and misses my favorite regions.
