Even though there hasn’t been a lot going on here on Land of Redemption this past week there’s a lot going on in the Redemption community! Most people have Revelation of John in hand now. State and Regional tournaments are just around the corner. There’s a lot of excitement and buzz about all the possibilities the new cards present.
Today I want to share with you a few minor updates that happened to the REG last week and tell you about an all Revelation of John booster draft our group did.
In this session of Learning From Our Peers we’re going to examine a game zone that’s available to other strategy card games but hasn’t been feasible for Redemption – the sideboard.
“A sideboard or side deck is a set of cards in a collectible card game that are separate from a player’s primary deck. It is used to customize a strategy against an opponent by enabling a player to change the composition of the playing deck.”
Games that use the sideboard tend to play a match, allowing players to modify their deck after the first game. Throughout the years there have been many discussions on the message boards about how we could implement a sideboard into Redemption. It’s a difficult thing to do without playing a match so none of the ideas were ever agreed upon.
