Welcome!

Greetings, greetings!

So, let's cut to the chase.  This blog is about LCGs- namely, a type of CCG that doesn't used a randomized distribution method.  With all the various blogs and resources out there relating to the various CCGs, I felt that there was a distinct lack of resources about this important, awesome subgenre, and I wanted to make sure it was addressed.

So, what games does this site cover?  At present, there are only 4, but more are sure to come:
  • A Game of Thrones LCG
  • Call of Cthulhu LCG
  • The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game
  • Warhammer: Invasion The Card Game
There is also a future addition already mentioned (Star Wars: The Card Game), that should be out in later 2012.  Notice- all of these games are released by Fantasy Flight Games.  They seem, for the moment, to be the only company to adopt this release style.  Here's hoping more companies follow suit.

For now, I only play the last two of those games, but I'm hoping to move into Game of Thrones soon, and Call of Cthulhu soon after.

I'm not a very good player yet, I'll freely admit that, but I hope with some practice, and spending enough time engrossing myself in it, that I'll not only get better, but will simultaneously provide a good resource for people playing these fantastic games.

What can you expect from this place?  For now, primarily news and lists of the cards in each of the sets.  I hope to eventually get good enough to put up strategy articles and deck-building advice.  With some more experience and skill, I'll handle tournament coverage and maybe a rules question or two.  Eventually, I would also love to support fictional cards and variants.

Finally, this isn't going to be much if it's just me alone- if anyone else has a love for these games, even if only just one, let me know!
