Today’s video has a game demonstration between a Genesis deck and a Musician deck (different from the Musician deck in the other video).
Join us for episode 2 of Grill Gabe and The Guardian!
Most National tournaments use the same schedule pairing T1-2P and T2-2P together, forcing players to choose between two pretty amazing categories. That makes the choice of what to play on Friday tough for me pretty much every year.
It often comes down to which deck (my T1 or T2) that I feel like I’ll enjoy most. Sometimes it comes down to which category needs another player to keep the count even. But this year the choice was pretty easy for me. I knew I wanted to play BoM!
Here’s my tournament report!
Today we have another great video from Chris. He discusses his picks for CoW cards with the most impact on the game.
A long time ago at a Nationals far, far away…
No, this isn’t the beginning of a certain sweeping space saga set some millennia past. This preamble hearkens back to Nats 2015 in TN. It was a tournament I hadn’t planned on attending at the start, but Nats booster is always appealing so I was drawn to it as the date got closer. The combination of drafting with new cards among such a large pool of players from everywhere makes for quite an enticing draw. So, after a win in MN Nats ‘14 the year before, I thought I’d brave the waters and make the journey south, to play once more.
Chris has another awesome video to share! Today’s video shows us a game between a Genesis deck and a Musicians deck.
I don’t normally play T2-MP at Nationals. Partially because it’s usually paired with booster draft, a format I really enjoy, and partially because of the nature of multi-player events. It’s a grueling format with long games and (usually) multiple tempo swings. You really have to prepare yourself mentally to go into that kind of event. But having a perfect 90 RNRS points after Regionals I had to give it a try.
Having played a lot of both T1 and T2 this past season, I was really torn on which one I wanted to play at Nationals. In the end I decided to only play T1 if there were an odd number of T1 players and an even number of T2 players (not counting me for either). As it turned out, we had an even number of T1 and an odd number of T2 so I jumped into T2 to make things all even.
Nationals 2016 was more than just another Redemption tournament for me. It turned into a week-long adventure full of fun, fellowship, new friendships, trials and blessing. There’s no way to share it all with you so I’m just going to touch on the highlights.
Another year of Nationals has come and gone and what a wonderful turn out it was! It’s been a long time since I have joined Gabe on a trip to the National Tournament, let alone play Redemption; with each baby, they slowly ate away at my action plan brain cells and just never gave them back. Good thing they’re so cute, eh? But that doesn’t mean I don’t support it 100% and encourage my husband and kids as they get their gaming geekiness on. I love it. The strategy, math, reading and knowledge of the Bible characters, locations, commands and promises are saturating their minds as they participate in fellowship and fun. What an incredible combination!
Chris is back! Today we have the first of several videos made and uploaded recently.
Greetings and salutations! Gabe and I apologize for not updating everyone via the blog here as Nats progressed. The church’s guest internet connection wasn’t very stable and the private connection was reserved for the live streaming of games that was done. I was able to provide some results via Twitter and we have now compiled the full standings.
There are a number of people traveling to Ohio for the Redemption National Tournament this week. In fact, by the time you’re reading this I’ll probably be on the road with my family. For all you procrastinators out there who haven’t nailed down your deck list yet, I’m going to give some last minute thoughts on what I expect to see in the Type 1 events.
I’ve seen and heard from a lot of players that they’re just getting back into the game after a hiatus. If you’ve been keeping tabs on things here at Land of Redemption then you probably have an idea of what’s good right now. Let’s recap what’s strongest in Type 1.
Nationals 2016 is this week! I don’t know about anyone else, but both Gabe and I are super excited!!
If you missed part 1 of the report, be sure to check that out for a full recap of which Pokemon we caught, who won the gym battles, and how John Earley’s strongest Pokemon is a 32 CP Rattata… Oh, wait, this is a Redemption tournament report.
Pat Wester did an outstanding job of hosting this year’s North Central Regional tournament. The facilities are amazing. If you attended the 2014 National Tournament you know what I’m talking about. Pat made sure everyone was accommodated and ran things smoothly despite some computer issues.
The fellowship of old friends and new ones was great. When we weren’t busy playing Redemption some people kept battling one another for rights to the Poké-gym at the church or helped one another find the rare Pokémon that kept popping up around the facilities. Even the legendary Chris Bany stopped by to say hi and take over the Poké-gym for a moment.
It was round 4 of T2 2P at the 2015 National Tournament. Having lost a time-out game to my brother Jordan in round 2, I assumed I probably needed to win the rest of my games to have any shot at taking first. I was matched up against Clift C. who has been (and continues to be) one of the top T2 players in the game. I had jumped out to a 3-1 lead, but LS drought was stopping me from continuing to press the attack. Having looked at Clift’s hand, I knew that he had a bunch of evil enhancements, and his only two evil characters (Assyrian Siege Army and Assyrian Survivor) were both sitting in his territory. Knowing that either of them could do a lot of damage later on, I decided I would use my Jephthah even though it would only be for a battle challenge. I exchanged AutO to Jephthah out of deck, and Clift gave my deck a couple shuffles. He was about to shuffle one more time, but then stopped and said “Ooo, that felt good right there.”
The best players win games by gaining every advantage possible over an opponent. One way to do that is by finding not so obvious ways to use your cards. Today we’re going to look at some “pro plays” using the most powerful card type in the game – Dominants.
Hey guys, for the first interview in this series, I interviewed Bill “everytribe” Voigt from my very own Twin Cities playgroup.
Hello everyone and welcome to our fourth installment of Cloud of Witnesses Combo Musings! It’s time for “the talk”.
Welcome to episode 1 of Grill Gabe and The Guardian!
The Year was 2016 – The Location: Lakeville, Minnesota – The stakes: Bragging rights for a year as the best player in MN!!!
Welcome to the Minnesota State tournament!
Hello everyone and welcome to our third installment of Cloud of Witnesses Combo Musings! As before, I will be commenting on more combos with the new CoW cards. Well, CoW card. This article will be brief as it just focuses on 1 new CoW card.
How many of you have ever played a game of pinball? Not a digital rendition on a mobile device or gaming console, but on a real arcade-style pinball table? For those that have, maybe you remember nudging the table to help move the ball the direction you wanted. But if you nudge too much, the table would lock up with a warning – TILT! You’d lose your ball and sometimes points.
The term tilt has also been adapted into strategy card games as slang for those times when our emotions override sound judgment and cause us to make a poor play or adapt a sub-optimal strategy.
Hey guys, Justin “The Guardian” Alstad here and I’m back with a couple of new series that I’ll be doing for Land of Redemption!
We had most of the people from our playgroup gather for the California State Redemption tournament that met on June 25th and 26th and I would like to share my experience during the tournament and the impact the new set had.
We had a lot of fun giving cohesion to the animal theme during the development of Cloud of Witnesses. Part of what inspired the expansion of Redemption’s animals is Daniel Huisinga’s original submission of Coliseum. Although the animal related ability on Coliseum didn’t last, the animals and related cards were already integrated into the set and we became very fond of them.
A long time ago, way back when we released Women of the Bible as the 3rd Redemption expansion, we printed Jochebed.
Welcome to a new series here at Land of Redemption. Many of you will probably be familiar with my work. My best man, Andrew Wester, and I used to run the Redemption Metagaming youtube channel and blog for about a year until life got in the way of Redemption. If you remember my work, you know I did a lot of abstract pieces about theories behind your decks.
My first Redemption Nationals was in 2007. It was such a great time that I’ve been back every year since! But let me assure you, the things that I have the privilege to share with you today are going to help make Redemption Nationals 2016 the best National Tournament yet!!!
This is a re-post of Travis’ article from last week. We had issues getting the format right so it was originally posted as a PDF. See it below as a regularly formatted article. You may now leave comments below!
Did you hear the news? As if Cloud of Witnesses isn’t awesome enough already, Cactus Game Design is going to release a more awesome looking version of the entire set!
Approximately 20 people gathered for the Iowa State Redemption tournament on June 9th and 10th. I’d like to share a little bit about that experience with you and talk about the “BoM” deck that took 1st and 2nd in T1-2P.
The crowd consisted of mostly local players with a handful of veterans who traveled to join us. Both Pat (h20tor on the forum) and Mitch (MitchRobStew) made the drive from other parts of Iowa. Joining us from the great state of Minnesota were Jayden (KoalaKing), John (Red Dragon Thorn) and Justin (The Guardian).
Hello everyone and welcome to our second installment of Cloud of Witnesses Combo Musings! (view Part 1 here) As before, I will be commenting on more combos with the new CoW cards. These combos are supersized. Extra Cloudy, made from the finest CoWs. Don’t hold the fries.
Welcome to the 2016 competitive Redemption season! The meta is on fire with new combos and a resurgence of cards which may have been in your binder for some time coming to the front of rescuing souls with the newly released set, Cloud of Witnesses!
Never before in the Redemption meta have I witnessed such a diverse collection of competitive decks, all with their own forms of versatility and viability. Cloud of Witnesses has brought us to the very forefront of Redemption action in battle as well as in strategy!
I posed a question on the Cactus Game Design Message Boards a couple weeks ago.
“I am thinking about writing an article for LoR that talks about how a set is priced and what the first month (pre-orders and sale) has looked like and where the value of CoW cards seem to be headed. Would there be any interest in that side of things?”
After I saw that there was interest, I began to put together the statistics for Cloud of Witnesses and in so doing, became very curious about how other games accomplish a similar task. The following is the product of experience and research; being largely borrowed and adapted from articles I have found on this topic online. If you need to, grab a glass of water and get comfortable: this post is a long one but it’s a good one, and well worth the read.<!–more>
Join John Early and I as we play out game 2 between our play test decks shortly before Cloud of Witnesses went to print. Does the Haman’s Plot get ripped this game? Watch and see!
Think back to the first time you ever attended a Redemption National Tournament. Your trip to the location may have been an epic tale of heroic struggle and fortitude or it may have been a short trip with little to remember. Either way, as you walked into the venue, you inevitably came to a registration table stacked with possibilities and promos. You paid your entry and then were handed your very first copy of the newest National promo. What did you want to do immediately? Right, put it into your deck immediately so you can show of your newest acquisition. But alas, your dreams were dashed at deck check-in.
Join John Early and I as we play out a game between two of our play test decks shortly before Cloud of Witnesses went to print. We explain our decks and walk you through some of our thinking as the game progresses.
Here’s a recap of one of the first ever booster drafts with Cloud of Witnesses!
Join Jesse as he opens a box of Cloud of Witnesses cards!
There are a lot of decisions that go into making a card. Sometimes they are easy. Other times they aren’t as cut and dry. We were pretty well decided on what Noah’s Ark will do long before Cloud of Witnesses went to print. But there was one rather large aspect of the card that was undecided right up until a week ago.
Welcome back to Drafting with Drrek where this time we take a look at Kings, a set with a lot of cards, and a lot of great characters.
Listen to advice and suggestions for drafting with Cloud of Witnesses from one of Redemption’s top players!
Hello everyone and welcome to the next installment of Cloud of Witnesses Musings! Today I will be commenting on some combos I’ve noticed with the new CoW cards. When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade. But when life gives you 129 new Redemption cards 3 months before Nationals, you make combos!
Maybe you know the reference being made in the title of this article or maybe you don’t. Maybe I am really telling my age by the fact that I even made the reference. One thing we can all agree on though is this…a Noah’s Ark card has been way overdue; no maybes about it. Noah has been in the game since Patriarchs along with a small representation of his family with Noah’s Sons. Those cards, although fun if you pull them together in Booster Draft, have really seen no play since their release. The “Flood Theme” has seen a huge boost within the Cloud of Witnesses set with the new Noah and the addition of cards for Shem, Ham, and Japheth along with Noah’s Wife and a fun card that hinted that Noah’s Ark was coming, Pitch and Gopher Wood. Without further ado, let me introduce you to the 2016 National Promo card, Noah’s Ark.
We’d like to take a moment to give you a quick Sunday update about some breaking news… The Lackey plug in has been updated to include Cloud of Witnesses!!!
The Elders have completed a minor version update to the REG that is effective immediately. The primary changes were updating and adding information for Cloud of Witnesses cards but there are some other interesting changes as well.
Win Booster draft, create a card. This was the deal. This was the opportunity. This was the challenge on the floor of the coliseum. Win or die. No tricks, nothing outside of the very authority of God himself to save you from the brawl. Every move has a counter. Every feint a dodge. Three opponents at a time, each vying for the same goal: victory.
An attack! Do you defend now or later? Is the enemy of your enemy going to give you the succor of his unholy documents? Who was it that drafted Mayhem again? The Enhancements, negotiations and time fly, but when the dust settles? There can be only one. One game-winning rescue, and Emperor Anderson is descending from his dais to grant you a reward incomparable to the feeling of battles well fought and honor well earned.
When I won Nationals in 2015 (read about it here) I got a super cool prize, the ability to create a card! Now you may be thinking “But John, aren’t you a playtester, don’t you already create cards?” Yes, and no. A lot of the set-building happens before I come in. I do contribute from time to time on the creation side, but my focus is more on ability tweaking. Also, we tend to have strong themes in our sets – The Nationals Prize was outside of these lines.
And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death. (Revelation 12:11)
From the time it was announced that the winners of T1 2P, T2 2P, and Booster Draft would be able to create their own cards as part of the new set, I knew that if I won that this would be the verse for my card. My favorite verse as a child was Philippians 4:13 (which is a verse I still love) but over the past seven or eight years this verse from Revelation has been my favorite as the idea of a testimony became an integral part of my life.
If you haven’t read Part 1, please check there first for the introduction and discussion of the first CoW ultra-rare!
Hello everyone! Now that the Cloud of Witnesses expansion has been spoiled in whole, it’s time to consider what this means for Redemption. If you are like me, you are extremely excited yet feeling somewhat overwhelmed right now! Cloud of Witnesses is giving us 129 new cards that we need to incorporate into our thought process as we build our tournament decks. Nationals is less than 3 months away! So where do we start? What do we focus on? What are the implications and considerations needing to be addressed when an expansion is released 2 months before Nationals? That’s what I’ll be discussing in what I plan on being a multi-part “blog-like” series of articles. I’ll just be talking about whatever comes to mind and we’ll see where it leads!
Falling Away has been a staple Dominant since it was introduced in Redemption’s 3rd set – Women. It was introduced to balance the newly printed New Jerusalem promo card. One let you rescue an extra Lost Soul, the other let you take a Redeemed Soul away.
From the beginning, Falling Away has been a staple card in almost every competitive deck. But it’s also one of the most theologically controversial cards in the game. There have been players who have refused to use it. I knew a guy who just called it “the theologically incorrect card”.
The Letter to the Hebrews is an incredible book, even called a masterpiece by secular scholars. The arguments and positions it lays out are strong, unshakable, and help us set the foundation of our faith. It was written to the Jews who converted, and the author recounts both their history and future with Christ. Really, Hebrews can tell the whole story of the Bible…
A couple weeks ago I recorded this podcast while traveling to visit Gabe. I cover topics like power creep, the state of the game, and where we tried to push things with this set. I also touch on what decks I think will do well after Cloud of Witnesses becomes legal for play. As you gear up for tournament season, I think this can be a valuable resource to help you hit the ground running!
Just a short post today to let everyone know that the Cards and Rules page has been updated!
Jesus Christ was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life perfectly pleasing to God, offered himself as the sacrificial lamb to pay for the sins of mankind leading to his death on the cross, rose to life on the third day, was seen by hundreds of people and then ascended to heaven to sit at the right hand of God constantly interceding for the saints. That’s an extremely impressive resume! But that’s not all. The scriptures also promise us that he’s coming back!
At 2015 Nationals, Rob offered an amazing prize for whomever won T1-2P, T2-2P, and Booster Draft: the ability to design a Redemption card that would be printed in an official set. While the usual balancing and playtesting would, of course, be done with the cards, they would be kept as close to the intent of the creator as possible.
As Gordon Gecko once said: greed is good. And that’s why all of today’s cards deal with MONEY!
We added these three cards onto the list in the middle of the playtesting process. We were told we had nine more slots to work with and we came up with these as part of that set.
“For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.” (Luke 19:10) Jesus spoke these powerful words after Zaccheus, the infamous tax collector, showed Repentance and Restitution for all the times he had cheated his fellow people. The goal of Redemption follows the example of Jesus: to save and redeem Lost Souls. Redemption does not portray specific people as Lost Souls because in a sense, we are all Lost Souls before we come to know Jesus. Even when we come to know Jesus, there may be times in our lives when we drift away or feel that we have lost our connection to Him. The amazing truth is that even when we make mistakes, He will never leave us nor forsake us, and that He always welcomes us back with open arms when we return to Him.
If you haven’t yet read Antediluvians: Part 1 you might want to check that out before proceeding. That article focuses on the evil side of the antediluvian theme. Today we’re going to focus on the good side of the antediluvian theme, or more specifically “flood survivors”.
There has been a lot of conversation about “alternate win conditions” in the game of Redemption. If you are not familiar with the concept, it is based on the idea that there could be another way to win besides the standard condition; which in Redemption is rescuing a certain amount of Lost Souls. So perhaps instead of rescuing souls, you would be able to have four specific cards all in play at the same time which would mean you win regardless of the Lost Soul score at the time.
It’s Sunday morning. You might be a church-goer, you might not. If you are, it’s likely that at some point someone at your church (a pastor, a Mentor or maybe a Best Friend) has been there for you during a tough time. I believe that God puts specific people in our lives to come alongside us, to guide us, to give us Words of Encouragement, to let us know that we are Not Alone and to keep us from Falling Away from the faith. The book of Hebrews talks of such people. We are introducing two new Heroes to represent them.
In the last couple of years, gray has seen extensive use as a defensive brigade and the results have been impressive. In 2013, a Roman-based hand control deck won T1 2P at Nationals. That same year, a pair of decks using Pharisee-based defenses (along with a couple Romans) won TEAMS at Nationals. The following year at Nationals, the top three decks for T1 2P used gray defenses (first place being mostly Pharisees while second and third used a Pharisee/Roman mix). A deck with a Pharisee defense also won T2 MP in 2014 proving that it’s not just a T1 defense. Last year saw gray take a bit of a step back as the top gray deck “only” got third place in T1 2P, but it’s pretty clear that a gray defense—in some combination of Pharisees and Romans—is one of the dominant defenses right now.
As part of God’s divine plan, Egypt played a pretty big role in the early books of the Bible. Egyptians, as a defense, have also played a pretty big role in Redemption in years past. But more recently, due to lack of new cards and support, they’ve been less popular.
That can actually be said of a few themes. So when we sat down to flesh out the defenses in Cloud of Witnesses we knew that there were some long neglected civilizations that we wanted to show some love this year. Three of them in particular.
So when we left off in Part 1, King Saul was chasing David throughout Israel and the surrounding nations in a desperate attempt to keep the kingship of Israel in his family line. However, time and again David was one step ahead of Saul. Before word of King Saul’s mission had spread very far, David went to the city of Nob. While there, he lied to Ahimelech the priest about why he was there in order to get food and supplies.
Redemption’s newest theme is going to be referred to by many people as “that word I can’t pronounce”. Just give it your best shot. What’s more important is what it means for game play. Who does it include? Why does it matter?
Antediluvian is a term used to describe any character who lived before the world wide flood of Genesis 7.
It was a tenuous time in Israel. Samuel the prophet was getting old and his time for leading Israel was coming to an end. Unfortunately, Samuel’s sons, Joel and Abijah did not walk in the ways of their father and instead used their position for dishonest gain. The elders of Israel made a decision—they wanted a king like the other nations around them. Samuel was not pleased about this and sought after God about the people’s request.
Now joining their wild counterparts are two more Evil Characters and a Curse with an ability that relies on animals being used. Let’s meet these cards and see how they will add a wrinkle to the emerging animal theme of Cloud of Witnesses.
Here at Land of Redemption we do not condone animal cruelty. I do not believe that God does either. Yet, in the Bible we have a story about a Hero who did some questionable things to animals in an effort to get revenge on his enemies. The result gives us a card like we’ve never seen before!
Like several other good brigades, teal has not gotten many new cards in the most recent sets. There have been some good Heroes for specific themes (Crispus for a Corinth deck, Faithful Priest for a Jerusalem deck and Eleazar, Son of Aaron for a Tabernacle Priests deck), but not a whole lot besides those. While Cloud of Witnesses is likewise not going to introduce a huge boost for teal, it is going to give us two really strong teal Heroes. The best part is that these two teal Heroes will fit perfectly in ANY teal deck.
If you have not read the first part of this article, go back now and read it. Once you have done that, come back and you will be up to speed where we are headed with the final four of the Dual Testament cards in the Cloud of Witnesses set.
When I heard that our set this year was going to be based on Hebrews, my eyes lit up. Not only do I really love Hebrews as a book, but I really love when a New Testament writer harkens back to and quotes from an Old Testament text. And since Dual Testament cards are already a thing since The Early Church set gave us the Covenant card, Scroll of Isaiah, the precedent had been set. I opened up my Bible and began hunting for places where Hebrews quoted the Old Testament and made a list of references. Next, I went back and looked at each instance and tried to come up with possible names for cards from each reference. Once I had that, I made the first draft of what I thought a card with that name and that verse might do in the game of Redemption. My original list consisted of 54 Dual Testament cards and 4 other cards that I came up with along the way. Now for the fun part. I will to show you where each card began followed by the end result.
Welcome back to part two of White Cloud! Last time I broke down four awesome Heroes from the new Cloud of Witness set. This time I’m going to take a look at some of the new faith Enhancements and how they provide white with options beyond Magnificat and ‘He is Risen’.
If you missed part 1, be sure to check that out first! Now let’s continue on our journey through the Hall of Faith.
As noted in Gabe’s first article introducing the Cloud of Witnesses set, we drew very heavily from Hebrews in this set. One of the most inspirational passages in the Bible can be found in this epistle, in what we could call the Hall of Faith of Hebrews 11. The NIV calls this section “Faith in Action,” and the NASB (which we now use on Redemption cards) calls it “The Triumphs of Faith.” All of these titles are very apt, as the entire section shows the power of faith, and the central role it plays in the lives of those who have it.
Another weekend article, can it be real? Yes, dear readers! Another cloud hero for your viewing pleasure.
What? Land of Redemption is posting new content on the weekend? Well, I thought we’d drop another cloud Hero on our faithful readers!
With the “earlier than normal” release of Cloud of Witnesses this year, Cactus Game Design is making efforts to ensure everyone gets to know the new cards before we use them in tournaments over the summer. One way they’ve done that is to offer FREE LOCAL TOURNAMENTS this summer! For more details, see CactusRob’s post on the message boards.
Mr. Anderson has afforded us the opportunity to share up to a fourth of the set with you each week over the next four weeks! By my count we’ve only spoiled 25 cards so far on Land of Redemption this week. I’ll rectify that for you today.
After we had first gone over the first set list for Cloud of Witnesses, my brother and I were in the car headed somewhere I can’t remember, discussing the set and trying to think if there were any major thematic cards that weren’t currently in the list. We realized that one Hero, Jacob, did not have any opposing evil characters in the set, and the most obvious antagonist for him would be Esau. And so, we decided to try to take a crack at thinking of a good ability to propose an Esau for the set list.
If you’ve been playing Redemption regularly over the past year or so chances are you have played with or against a deck using a clay offense. The Persecuted Church expansion increased the clay card pool, including some new churches, and added some powerful options for clay offenses. A few months ago, around Christmas, one of the best Redemption players said “clay is meta.” Based on my opponents in ROOT tournaments since the PC release, I have to agree. Not everyone is playing clay but your odds of seeing a clay deck are higher than other decks right now.
White Brigade is often overlooked and undervalued. It is frequently the brigade that ‘oddball’ characters without major themes get placed. Examples include Zerubbabel and Woman of Wisdom. It is the home to 3 O.T. mini-themes, Daniel, Musicians, and Ruth Heroes. None of these are very good on their own. UNTIL NOW! It’s time for white to make a resurgence. I present to you: White Cloud!
In the letter to the Hebrews the author looks to the O.T. stories and practices to draw parallels to the present day fulfillment of God’s promises. This gives us the perfect setting for an O.T. / N.T. hybrid set like you’ve never seen before! If you haven’t seen the announcement on the Redemption CCG Facebook page – check it out!
Check back here and the official Redemption Facebook page the week of April 18th as previews and all kinds of new information about the upcoming set release begin to roll out!
Anytime you see a cloud icon next to the article on the home page you’ll know it contains spoilers. Be forewarned!
Hey guys, took a bit longer than I planned to get this article wrapped up, but such is life sometimes. I realized today that this will be the 7th article in this series, and it seems fitting that a T2 deck-building series should finish at 7.
I was just reading in Jeremiah 38-39 of Ebed-Melech, who I don’t remember ever reading of or learning about but he’s such a great example of a faithful follower of the Lord. He doesn’t currently have a Redemption card, but I think it’d be great to have a card for him!
The book of Hebrews lists Gideon among the heroes of faith in Israel’s history (Hebrews 11:32). The exploits of men like Gideon, who lived more than 3,000 years ago, are recorded because “whatever things were written before were written for our learning, that we through the patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope” (Romans 15:4). The incident in his life most familiar to Bible readers was a spiritual exercise in overcoming seemingly insurmountable obstacles. Gideon understood the ultimate importance and safety of having God as man’s ruler.
Today is Land of Redemption’s 200th post! We have another video by Chris (KingLeo on the message board) talking about some fan-created Redemption card ideas from the message board.
What are all the parts that make up a Redemption card? To a veteran the answer might seem obvious. But to many beginners there are aspects that don’t always stand out right away.
Today, we have a short video by Chris (KingLeo on the message board) highlighting his Card of the Week.
Communication and language can be a difficult thing to get right. If you’ve been playing Redemption for very long I’m sure you’ve noticed the progression of card wording over the years as the game’s creators have attempted to have cleaner wording.
Today we’re going to take a look at something that a lot of games have implemented that can help with clean wording and clear communication. Whether it’s a CCG, a board game, or something else that uses cards as one of it’s tools, most modern games make use of symbols in the card text.
Today, Chris (KingLeo on the message board) delves further into deck building.
In case you’ve missed it some big news just went live
