- Yomi (2nd Edition)
- Pandante (2nd Edition, kickstarter link here)
- Flash Duel (revised printing, also at the kickstarter link above)
The Codex customizable card game will be playable the whole time, but especially on Friday. Codex is an RTS-themed card game that gives you a lot more flexibility of builds during a game than most other card games. Think of it like Warcraft 3 in card form.
Flowchart is a fighting card game that's nothing like Yomi, originally designed by Tim Fowers and adapted by David Sirlin. Try out a beta form at Fantasy Strike Expo.
Who should come?
Really anyone who enjoys these games should come, if possible. And it's not just about the games either, but rather the community of enthusiasts who create a great atmosphere.
Note that this is not just a local event. It's located right next to the San Francisco International Airport to make traveling as easy as possible. There's even a free shuttle from the airport to the hotel. Last year we had several from Canada as well as Kasumi who came all the way from Japan!
One reason to come would be if you're actually good at any of these games. You don't want to let some shmoe win do you? That said, all skill levels are welcome. Attending a tournament is usually quite a learning experience regardless of your skill or lack of it. Even if you don't enter any tournaments at all, plenty of casual play is encouraged as well. It's fun to be in an environment with like-minded people and to make new friends, so you might be interested in attending for the social aspects alone.
Keep in mind that three day passes are only available for early registration this year, which runs until April 30th. After that, only single day passes are available. Sign up now.
