Goofy Hats and Portals: The Rise of the Eliatropes

 I was first introduced to Eliatropes about a week after picking up the game, when R.Nav was training for US nationals and put down his team of teleporters. At the time I was still very new to the game and was too smitten with a certain bearded Foggernaut Boss to give the Eliatropes the proper time and consideration they deserved, and to be honest, I still didn’t until nearly 6 months later.

Krosmaster on April 11th, International Tabletop Day!

Japanime Games is a sponsor of International Tabletop Day, and as a result, there will be Krosmaster Demo events nationwide. For the DFW area, I'll be hosting a Tabletop Day Kroztour, that will hit three stores in the DFW area to reach out to players new & old. I'll have demos of both Krosmaster and Junior set up, as well as space for full games as well.

The Big Picture: Worlds 2015

The weekend of March 20th and 21st brought together 25 players presenting five different countries to battle for the title of the first ever Krosmaster Arena World Champion. The format of the event was a round robin style group stage where the lowest scoring member of each group would exit the event and then move on to a standard double elimination tournament. The event was broadcast live over Twitch.TV in English for the entire world to see. The Videos are currently available as previous broadcasts on Twitch, but should be posted to YouTube shortly after the writing of this article.

Cats vs Iops: The Eternal Struggle

The game this week was a little different than normal. I recently came to the conclusion that I have purchased too many little plastic people and that for me to be able to bring everything I want to for game night, I would need to reorganize my bag. One important note that you, the trusty reader, should take from this is make sure you repack your character cards after a hearty reorganizing. It really sucks not having them, because then you end up buying a foil set of season 1 cards and last minute scraping a team together.
