Equipping Young Kids (Part 2)

In Equipping Young Kids (Part 1), I discussed a couple of ways to get kids involved in learning Redemption before they are able to read as well as a unique way to use half of a starter deck to get early readers started.  I also discussed using the other half of the same starter deck to play against them to help with card familiarity.  Whatever method you use, I cannot stress enough how important it is for the kids to get very familiar with their cards, and the game rules before making any changes to their decks.  I have seen too many kids wanting to make changes to their decks immediately, only to add enhancements that they don’t have any characters to play them on.  I firmly believe this will be less likely if you spend more time helping them to learn the basics in a way similar to the recommendations in Part 1.

Do You Want to Build a Playgroup?

Do You Want to Build a Snowman Playgroup?

So, you love to play Redemption, but so far only travel long distances to tournaments, or play online with Lackey (when it’s working). Deep in your heart, though, you feel like starting your own playgroup so that you will be dependent on neither. But then fear overtakes you as you are hit with the inevitable question………. How do I start?!?

Hello and welcome to Browa’s Budget Bazaar!

This article series is designed to provide quick and simple deck ideas in general, as well as for specific themes, that won’t be hard on your wallet! There will also be suggestions for those with more available funds on how to spruce up the deck.

Hosting a Redemption Play Group

One of the things I’d like to see here at Land of Redemption are resources for play group leaders and aspiring play group leaders. We have some very successful play group pleaders in this game. I’ve reached out to a few of them and some are willing to share insights with us, when their schedule allows. The type of person who hosts a play group is typically someone who gives of themselves. Those type of people usually have a pretty full schedule. In the meantime, I’m going to share a few things I’ve learned as a play group leader, mostly by trial and error.

Today’s Topic: Upgrading our Ruth/Judges deck from the very first article.

Today we’ll be using the I/J and G/H starter decks found in the 4th edition and 10th anniversary boxes respectively as well as Faith of our Fathers tin 2 and Rock of Ages tins 18 and 23.

Hearkening all the way back to the very first article in the Bazaar, which you can look at here, today we’re going to update our white/gold deck with some tins. As mentioned in the upgrade section for that deck, there isn’t much Ruth support outside the I/J decks so we’re going to remove the white part of our deck and make it a solid Judges offense. We’ll lose the recurring utility of the Ruth cards but we’ll gain access to several powerful cards including an awesome Fortress!
