Tournament Announcements / Re: 2019 North American Championship
« on: May 17, 2019, 08:44:27 PM »
Hey all. We're one week away and I'm going to clarify the tournament structure.

We'll be using the Tournament Floor Rules found here:, with some modifications we've found useful for the Virtual sets.

Registration will begin at 10am May 25th, with the first round beginning at 11am.

Time limits for each round will be 50 minutes. The number of rounds will be based on players in attendance. However, we'll be doing a minimum of 4 rounds rather than 3 that is stated for 8 Players or less.
9-16 Players - 4 Rounds. 17-32 Players - 5 Rounds. 33-64 Players - 6 Rounds.

There will be a half an hour break after the 3rd round.

After the last Swiss rounds prizes will be drafted using a snake format. Players will draft from first to last, and then last to first, continuing until the available prizing is gone.

Any raffle and 50/50 draws will be completed in this time as well.

We will be cutting to a Top 4 after Swiss, unless there are more than 16 people. Then there will be a Top 8.

Please remember that proxies are allowed. Ensure that the wording reflects the most recent printing and has the correct number of lines on the card.

The entire event will be streamed on

Rules Forum / Stylin’ Strut

The Stylin' Strut
Mid-match Action
This card is considered non-Unique for The Best Thing Going Today.
When your Fortitude Rating is 15 or more and this card is in your Backlash, after successfully playing a maneuver and damage is resolved, you may put this card into your Ring.  Your opponent may discard 3 reversals; if he does, your turn ends.  If he does not, you may draw 3 cards or search your Arsenal or Ringside for a card with 'whoo' in the title, reveal it, put it into your hand, and shuffle your Arsenal; and the next card played this turn is considered to have 'chop' in the title.
F: 0     D: 0     Unique

This may be a case of mis-wording, but when this card goes into play there doesn’t seem to be an effect to go with it because of the break after the first sentence. Is the intent to have everything go off after it finds its way into play?

The tail end of this year saw a resurgence of Raw Deal in the community and here’s to more growth this year. It looks like there are some pretty cool things coming. New cards, big tournaments and a positive group of players from around the globe.

I hope everyone has a wonderful 2019 and gets in plenty of games.

Just picked it up and can’t wait. Some things to do around the house before digging into it.

The Joker Persona 5 announcement came out of left field and now it really feels like anyone can be in this game.

Rules Forum / Re: "From a card"
« on: October 26, 2018, 05:30:43 AM »
I can see how this would be confusing, so think of it like this:

Card A granted card B a trait. The trait granted gives card B a reversal restriction, but the restriction still comes from the trait, not the card that granted the trait in the first place.

Does that make more sense?

Wording makes sense, but I’m not really following the logic. If card A isn’t played at all, there’s no restriction, so certainly the card A has to cause the restriction, regardless of what the restriction is?

Restriction comes from a trait. The trait comes from a card.

Okay I know the first rule of Fight Club is.... we're not supposed to talk about Fight ... But has there been any word on when we can expect this next virtual set to be released?

Nothing has been said anywhere else. It’ll likely be shared here or a new post once it’s known.

We’ve got our next episode up with an hour long conversation with Mike Foley about the history of the game and more.

I had the chance to speak with Mike Foley for the Backlash podcast and gives us a special reveal of something he's been working on that in the early stages.

Trumped UpDeal is using a slightly modified Raw Deal engine to pit political figures up against each other. Is this something you would be interested trying out? Give the page a look and show your support if you would like to play this game.
