Rumiko Takahashi Autograph Cards
In Inuyasha TCG
 
 

April 22, 2005

Score Entertainment has announced that it will include Rumiko Takahashi autograph cards in its Inuyasha TCG beginning with Yokai, the fourth set, which streets August 28th.  Takahashi will sign stickers that will be placed on one-of-one cards, each of which will feature alternative art on a specially designed template. 

 

Takahashi is one of the most prominent manga-ka in Japan and the creator of Ranma 1/2, Maison Ikkoku, and Mermaid Saga: Forest in addition to Inuyasha and other properties.  Her signature has rarely been seen in Japan, and no other Takahashi-autographed product has ever been released in North America.  Her appearance at the San Diego Comic-Con (including a signing at the Capital City Distribution booth) in the 90s caused a sensation, and her reputation and popularity have only increased since then.

 

The first autographed card will be given away at the Inuyasha Shikon Jewel World Championship tournament at Anime Expo in Anaheim on July 2nd.       

 


 

Upper Deck Expands Organized Play
For 2005
 
December 07, 2004

Upper Deck is planning a new program of launch events in hobby stores in 2005.  The new program, called "Release Celebrations," is currently slated to start in May, 2005 for both Yu Gi Oh and Versus system (Marvel and DC) products.  Release Celebrations will run at the local hobby store level as new products release.  Upper Deck will provide promotional kits to support the release with light organized play as an introduction to the product. 

 

According to Upper Deck Organized Play Program Manager Scott Elliott, Release Celebrations "...will be available to a much larger cross-section of hobby stores" than the current Sneak Preview events.  Sneak Previews are run by Upper Deck Premier event organizers, some of whom are retailers, at a variety of locations, some of which are stores.  These are typically run one per market for a new release, for a total of 40 to 50 simultaneous events nationwide.  Release Celebrations are expected to be held simultaneously at thousands of hobby stores. 

 

Sneak Preview events have new product available before the formal street date.  According to Elliott, Release Celebrations will also have early product.  "The plan is to stack the shipping so that these folks would receive priority in getting theirs first," he said of stores holding Release Celebrations.  Release Celebration event support will only be available to retailers buying directly from Upper Deck.  According to Elliott, Upper Deck plans an outreach program at the upcoming GAMA Trade Show in March to recruit as many retailers for the program as possible. 

 

Upper Deck recently launched another organized play program, the Shonen Jump Yu Gi Oh TCG Championship Series.  The first event was held last weekend at GenCon SoCal.  These events are jointly sponsored by Upper Deck, Shonen Jump, and Konami, and run by Upper Deck Premier tournament organizers.  They'll feature prizes such as laptop computers, "slim" Playstation consoles, Nintendo Gameboy DS units, and so on, down to booster packs for lower-ranked winners.  Special promo cards will be given away, such as "Cyber-Stein," which was a Japanese-only card until it was first given away at the GenCon event.  It hasn't been decided whether the promo cards will subsequently be included in Shonen Jump magazine, as some earlier Yu Gi Oh promo cards have been (see "Exclusive Yu Gi Oh TCG Card in December Shonen Jump"). 

 

Up to 2,000 Shonen Jump Yu Gi Oh events will be held over the next year, primarily at large conventions, or at Upper Deck weekends where other major organized play events are also taking place. 

 

A number of other Upper Deck organized play programs will continue in 2005.  The Yu Gi Oh Duelist League will continue at over 6,000 Wal-Mart, Toys R Us, and Books-a-Million stores.  This is a new player acquisition program, designed to be the first contact with Yu Gi Oh organized play for a new player.  Prize support and other features are different for the Duelist League than the Hobby League program. 

 

Upper Deck's Hobby League program will continue in 2005 for both Yu Gi Oh and the Versus System.  About 1000 hobby stores are currently participating in the Yu Gi Oh Hobby League, and about 700 in the Versus League.  Upper Deck Retail Organized Play Manager described the programs.  "With these league programs, we're providing an opportunity for retailers, regardless of their size, or their revenue, or their location, to have a value through these games and through these programs that their players aren't going to get anywhere else," he said.  Hobby retailers pay a $20 licensing fee for each kit they receive. 

 

The Vs. System Hobby League has a Hobby Reward Sweepstakes for both retailers and players.  The 2004 winning retailer, Henry H. Buchanan of Junior's Comics in Austin, Texas, received a $10,000 gift card to the home improvement chain of his choice.  His win was in the first League kit his store had ever received.  $12,000 in Alienware computers were given to players in 2004.  Both sweepstakes programs will continue for the Versus System in 2005. 

 

Upper Deck also runs Regional and National championships for its Yu Gi Oh TCG. 

 

For the Vs. System, Upper Deck will run Pro Circuit Qualifiers in hundreds of cities, leading into $10,000 Championship tournaments, and national champioinships.  The 2004 Pro Circuit Championship was held at GenCon SoCal last weekend -- the winner got a check for $45,000, and over $256,000 in prizes was awarded in all at the event.

National Games Week is November 21-27, 2004
 

BROOMFIELD, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 19, 2004--Games industry professionals throughout the country have joined together to promote the educational, social and entertainment value of playing non-electronic games. During National Games Week(TM), November 21-27, 2004, people across the country will be encouraged to turn off the television, step away from the computer and play a game. Any sort of game will do, such as board games, card games, roleplaying games, miniatures games and family and party games.

 

During the past decade, there has been a boom in non-electronic games. What was once considered a niche market has become mainstream. Board games have already set a sixth straight annual sales record, even before the key Christmas season. The art of game design and appearance has grown incredibly. There is a vast variety of games that adults and kids can play together, and all enjoy the shared experience of a smart game, some competition and a lot of interaction. The industry has evolved to include 40,000 products with over $5 billion in sales expected for 2004(a). Many of the games are available through specialty stores rather than the mass market.

"Millions of game enthusiasts already know that games are positive, social entertainment." said Mark Simmons, the founder of National Games Week and publisher of Games Quarterly(TM), "We are encouraging individuals, schools, game stores, churches, and anyone else to hold a Games Day event during National Games Week, showcasing the fun of game for family and friends."

Thousands of Games Day Hosts have been provided with the tools to make a fun, successful event -- posters, invitation cards, National Games Week Official U.S. postage stamps, information for educators, even promotional copies of games, via the web site www.nationalgamesweek.net.

Key sponsors for this year include Wizards of the Coast, makers of Magic The Gathering(TM)and Dungeons & Dragons(TM); Eagle Games, publisher the new Bootleggers(TM); Pokemon USA, organizers of huge Pokemon(TM) Trading Card Game events; Rio Grande Games, whose title Carcassonne won Best Game of the Year in Germany and the USA; and Mayfair Games, whose flagship game Settlers of Catan has won the same two awards and produced an entire product line.

UPPER DECK PLANS RELEASES FOR EARLY 2005.

COURTESY OF ICV2.COM
 

October 25, 2004

Upper Deck plans a robust schedule of releases for its two top-selling CCGs in early 2005. 

 

Four Yu-Gi-Oh! releases are planned for Q1.  Rise of Destiny boosters will be released in January, Dragon's Roar and Zombie's Madness Structure Decks in February, Flaming Eternity boosters in early March, and Dark Revelation I in late March. 

 

Three Versus System releases are planned for early 05.  Marvel Knights is due in February, DC Green Lantern in May, and DC Batman Starters are also due in May.

NINTENDO PLANS ON TV SUPPORT FOR POKEMON.
 
August 25, 2004

COURTESY OF ICV2.COM

 

 

Nintendo is planning over $1 million in television, print, and public relations marketing support for the next Pokemon TCG release, Fire Red and Leaf Green, due out August 30th.  According to Nintendo National Sales Manager Dean Irwin, despite printing more of this release than any previous Nintendo Pokemon TCG release, the product is nearly sold out from Nintendo before release. 

 

The new TCG release, in starter decks and booster packs, will be released a week and a half before the release of the Fire Red and Leaf Green Pokemon GBA videogames.  The videogames will get $5 million in national TV, radio, and print support from Nintendo. 

 

The heavy marketing support for the TCG, as well as coupling TCG releases with videogame releases (which receive even more advertising muscle), and strong organized play support (on which Nintendo has spent over $1 million in the last year) are some of the reasons for the strong sales of the Pokemon TCG despite its age.  Irwin said he believes Pokemon is a very solid #2 in mass (behind only Yu-Gi-Oh!), and #3 over-all (behind Magic in the hobby channel). 

 

 

 

Several other TCG releases are planned before the end of 2004.  Next up are the Pokemon Deck Tins, set for release on October 25th.  Four different tins, each with one of four random special cards, as well as a sticker set matching the tin art, will each retail for $9.99. 

 

On November 8th, an as-yet-unnamed Pokemon TCG set will be released, the seventh in the EX series.  The characters in the set will be based on Fire Red and Leaf Green.

 

And on November 15th, the EX Battle Stadium will street.  Shipped in a box, each Stadium will include two sixty-card decks, as well as two 10-card "sideboard" decks.  Also included will be special rules to help players build strategic decks.  MSRP will be $21.99.

 

Nintendo is looking for new non-videogame products to market in the States.  According to Irwin, the search is looking both at games and at other "impulse collectable items."  They could be based either on Nintendo, or on non-Nintendo intellectual property.  Irwin said of the search, "When the next Beanie Baby happens, we want to be part of it."

LOTR HOLDING UP BETTER THAN EXPECTED.

COURTESY OF ICV2.COM
 

August 09, 2004

According to Decipher VP Sales and Marketing Scott Gaeta, sales on the Decipher Lord of the Rings Trading Card Game have held up better than some expected after the release of the last movie in 2003.  The Siege of Gondor expansion, released in March, sold better than Battle of Helm's Deep, the comparable product released in March of 2003, according to Gaeta.  And orders for the just-released Mount Doom expansion are running ahead of those for Siege of Gondor, and on a par with the year-ago expansion. 

 

The mechanics for the LOTR TCG will change slightly in Decipher's November release, Shadows, allowing for more alternate ring-bearers and more unpredictability in outcomes.  Decipher will also continue to use Weta images of literary characters that didn't appear in the films in the future.

 

Decipher expects its dot Hack TCG to benefit from increasing exposure in other media, including the release of Legend of the Twilight, the second anime series, on Cartoon Netowrk.  Next year will see a new dot Hack videogame and new anime releases on DVD.

 

A Reflections release is planned for Decipher's Star Trek TCG in December, which like Reflections sets for other games will include some new rares and a selection of cards from past sets.  Strange New Worlds, planned for April, 2005, will include more Enterprise crew members and new aliens.

 


 

YU-GI-WHO?.......DUEL MASTERS HAS REPLACED THE KING OF GAMES.

6/28/04

ARE YOU A KAIJUDO MASTER?  YOU ARE GONNA WANT TO BE AFTER YOU PLAY DUEL MASTERS:  SEMPAI LEGENDS FOR THE GAMEBOY ADVANCE. 

THE GAME:  THE PREMISE OF THE GAME IS OF COURSE PLAYING THE CARD GAME.  YOU TAKE ON THE ROLL OF A "WANT TO BE KAIJUDO MASTER" OF WHOSE BIRTHDAY IT IS.  AFTER YOU VISIT A FEW THINGS AND COME BACK TO YOUR HOUSE YOU REALIZE THAT YOUR PARENTS DIDN'T FORGET YOUR BIRTHDAY LIKE YOU THOUGHT BUT, ARRANGED A SURPRISE PARTY IN YOUR HONOR.  THAT'S WHERE YOU RECEIVE YOUR GIFTS AND YOU FIND OUT THAT A BURGLAR BREAKS INTO YOUR HOUSE AND STEALS THEM.  THATS WHERE YOUR ADVENTURE BEGINS.  YOU HAVE TO FIND YOUR CARDS AND PLAY THE CARD GAME ALONG THE WAY ON YOUR WAY TO BECOMING A KAIJUDO MASTER.

THE PLAY:  THE GAME PLAY IS MUCH CLEANER THAN ANY OF THE YU-GI-OH GAMES.  THE ROLEPLAYING PART OF THE GAME IS MUCH LIKE POKEMON.  WHEN YOU GET TO THE DUELING ASPECT OF THE GAME, IT ACTUALLY COMES TO LIFE BETTER THAN YU-GI-OH WITH THE MONSTERS COMING TO LIFE ON THE FIELD. 

OUR THOUGHTS:  THIS IS PROBABLY THE BEST ANIME RELATED GAME WE HAVE PLAYED ON ANY PLATFORM.  ALSO IF YOU PLAY MAGIC THEN YOU WILL BE ABLE TO PICK THIS GAME UP REAL QUICK.  THE GAME PLAY IS QUICK TO PICK UP AND OF COURSE FUN TO KEEP PLAYING.  OUR FINAL THOUGHTS ARE PICK THIS GAME UP.  MOVE OVER YU-GI YOU HAVE BEEN DETHRONED AS THE KING OF GAMES, LONG LIVE KING SHOBU!

 


WOTC TO RELEASE MARBLE COLLECTABLE GAME.

COURTESY OF ICV2.COM
 

June 24, 2004

Wizards of the Coast is preparing to launch a new kind of "collectible" game based on one of the oldest collectibles around -- marbles.  Just as the collectible miniatures games followed the collectible card game paradigm, so does WotC's new Marbloids, which features 5 marbles plus a rules insert in every Marbloids Booster Pack ($6.50 retail). There will be a total of 60 different Marbloids in the first series for fans to collect, and of course there will be "Rare" and "Super Rare" marbles so designated by the inclusion of silver and gold glitter in their design.   The WotC Marbloids game is due out this fall and should appeal to a young, pre-Magic, demographic.
