It's a day before Thansgiving, and it's also the day for another Saving Throw to roll around. The contest is taking a week off due to the holiday, so instead you get a featured story from almost a year ago. Yes, in a couple of weeks, Saving Throw will be one year old.
The surprise I mentioned last week will be waiting another week, so this is another routine column. Our sound test curator sends in another prestige class, and I bring you news of a CCG going online and a new one coming out in 2007. With that, it's time for the column.
Gaming Tip of the Week
"When your gamemaster is an evil one, always be afraid when he smiles."
Alderac Entertainment Group has announced a strategic pairing with On The Go Games to create an online version of AEG's Warlord CCG. Warlord Online will allow players to collect and trade digital cards, play the game, and enter league and tournament events. There is no word yet on a launch date for this new title.
4Kids Entertainment has announced that it is producing a trading card game based on the company's animated TV series Chaotic. The game is scheduled to roll out in January with the website where players will be able to keep track of their collections virtually by logging the unique alphanumeric codes on their cards. The game's website will require passwords announced during the broadcast of the TV show in order to open certain areas. The company is planning to hold live tournaments at hobby and game stores in the first quarter of 2007 followed by the launch of the game to the mass market in April 2007. The game is scheduled to launch in Europe and Australasia in the first quarter of 2008.
