Raw Deal Cube
« on: April 23, 2014, 03:27:09 PM »
Everyone has been asking about the raw deal cube recently.  I am posting it here as this introduction should answer any questions you may have.  

   Hey all.  James Kandziolka here.  I had left playing raw deal over the past five years or so to pursue other hobbies.  Recently, Pat Eshghy and I were on a road trip talking about cubes and how much we loved the WOW TCG Cube (another now dead card game).  The conversation turned into two little kids on Christmas morning talking about designing a raw deal cube. What started as just an idea consumed my mind over the past week and led me to design the following raw deal cube.  There is an additional step when cubing in raw deal, but I will describe it in detail a bit later.  Ultimately, raw deal was such an enjoyable card flopping moment in my life, and I know that a cube will allow future moments with old friends and card floppers to enjoy some sweet nostalgia while getting that card gaming fix.
   What is a cube?  For those of you who are new to the concept of a cube, the general concept is quite simple: a cube is a pool of cards that can be randomized, organized into packs, and used to draft. Regardless of the type of cube you prefer, the truth remains that cube drafting is one of the most skill-intensive limited formats around. The way that cubes are designed makes it so that each card in the pool is of a fairly similar quality. This creates an unusual situation where every card in all of the packs is at least considerable for a player's deck. You might expect that since each card is relatively good that the decisions are easier since you have more reasonable choices. The opposite is actually true. There are going to be cards that are much better in one deck type than another, even though both are still quite good.
   Raw deal had raw draft in the past.  This was the closest the game ever got to a limited format, but it would equate to a sealed deck format.  We tried drafting raw deal in the past, but you could tell it just was not designed to be drafted.  Loving the limited format in card games more than the constructed, I remember wanting this for raw deal back in the day.  Sadly, it was not really achievable.  Creating a cube would allow this once defeated idea to become a reality.  I can see the toughts of “Do I first pick Backlash since the odds of someone having that one Backlash in a cube is so low?” “Can I wheel these Face cards around the table?” “Should I jump out of some superstar specifics because I want to draft Raw when some of my superstar specifics are Smackdown?” This is also the first iteration of a raw deal cube, so I am looking for feedback and your thoughts.  Please comment and share what you like or dislike.  The better the feedback, the better the cube is for all of us.
   The current raw deal cube is 560 cards. I hand selected cards from the revolution sets to be in the cube.  There are only cards that interacted with pre-Revolution cards in the classic raw deal sense.  I am not knocking revolution era raw deal.  I just preferred to design my cube this way.  Feel free to use this first model to design your own cube off of it.  Strikes, grapples, and submissions are evenly distributed among the non-0 cost maneuvers.  There are high risks in the cube as well, but about 100 of the maneuvers in the cube cost 0 fortitude.  They are too crucial to play the game that we love.  I strongly recommend not pulling these out of the cube when designing your own.
   Completely randomize the cube.  This may take 10 minutes as you really want it shuffled up.  Each player will make 5 packs with 14 cards in each pack.  Once the packs are made you are ready to start drafting.  With most other games’ cubes you just draft and build.  Raw deal has the added power of superstars and their specifics.  After some tweaks, there are 48 superstar sets to be played with the cube.  Certain superstars (Andre, Carlito, etc.) were excluded from the list of superstars due to their ability being too strong for gameplay.  You will see that there are only five cards attached to each superstar.  So how do we determine which superstar you are?  You randomly select a number of superstars equal to the number of people drafting the cube.  Now, players will be bidding a number from 1 to 5 on superstars and the cards in their pool.  Randomly determine who starts the bidding.  If you win Eddie Guerrero and his pool after bidding 3, you will select 3 of his superstar specifics in his pool to not have access to during deck building.  You determine which cards you won’t use after you have drafted cards for your deck.  You don’t do it right there on the spot in the bidding process.  Eventually the last person will get the last superstar, but they are not required to bid a number.  The advantage of getting the last pick is that you get access to all 5 superstar specifics where everyone else has to lose at least one.  Now you enter the draft portion.  Look at your first pack.  Pick one card.  Put it face down in front of you and pass the pack face down to your left.  Everyone else will be doing this at the same time.  Everyone does this for all 12 of their picks in pack one.  The cards you are picking are the cards you are building your deck with.  The second pack you will be doing the same thing except this pack goes to the right.  The third pack to the left.  The fourth pack to the right.  The last pack to the left.  Now you have sixty cards, your superstar, and some superstar specifics to build a deck.  Each player will also have access to 3 Step Aside, 3 Escape Move, 3 Break the Hold, 3 Oversell Maneuver/No Sell Maneuver (depending on your superstar), 1 Elbow to the Face, and 1 You're As Graceful As A Cow On Ice during deck building.  If the draft went bad for you reversal wise, don’t worry as you have access to these reversals when you start deck building.  You do not have to use all or any of them.  You just have access to them like everyone else at this point in time.  Remember you are still restricted by the rules that you can not pack face cards while packing heel cards, raw cards while packing smackdown cards, and cheater cards while packing fan favorite cards.  The only adjustment to previous rules in the game is that female superstars are allowed to play multi maneuvers where they previously could not.  Basically, ignore the “can not be played by female superstars” text on multi maneuvers.  Now you build your deck and start playing some games.

You don’t need to get a full eight people to draft the cube.  You can do it with 4 or 6 players.  If you only have one other buddy with you to play, have no worries.  You can play a heads up sealed cube match where each of you get 7 packs of twelve cards and a choice between two random superstar with their cards as well as 3 Escape Move, 3 Step Aside, 3 Break the Hold, and 3 Oversell Maneuver/No Sell Maneuver to build your decks out of.  Before building your decks in heads up play you get to choose one of your 5 superstar cards.  Your opponent then gets to choose one of the four superstar cards you did not choose.  The card your opponent chose will not be a part of your deck or backlash deck.  I am sure there are other variants people can come up with as well.  The short list for cubing goes as follows.  1.  Randomly pick superstars and their superstar sets equal to the number of players.  2. Bid 1-5 on superstars players want except for the last pick (they get all 5 cards with their superstar).  3. Draft 5 packs of 12 cards each.  4. Determine which superstar cards you don’t use equal to the number you bid.  5.  Build your deck with access to 12 additional reversals.  6.  Play and have fun.

At first glance I thought, Chyna + multis i'de bid five on that, however, There are not many of them, and good players will counter draft the multis.

Assuming we have 8-10 do we cut to a top or does best record win?

Cap it at eight and do single elimination.  I assume while drafting players will pay attention to what superstars are around the table and counter draft accordingly.  If chyna turns out to be too powerful then we can always drop her from the cube.  Nothing is set in stone.  Small changes and tweaks over time will just make the cube experience better.

As usual, I agree with Jim 100%. The only thing that I could add is to use this Cube as a starting point and adjust it for what your players find fun. An evolving Cube that is personalized to fit your group will always be more fun than the basic template.

The cube has been upgraded to 560 cards to fuel a full 8 man draft pod with 5 packs of 14 cards each.  New modifications include no superstar is restricted on playing cards.  Male superstars can play girly grab, chick kick, etc.  Female superstars can play multi maneuvers.  APA still can not play actions in their main deck.  Cheater/Fan Favorite/Bash rule are all ignored for the purpose of the cube.  There were not enough cards released for these types out of all the sets printed in Raw Deal, so there should not be deck building restrictions based on these cards.  Face/Heel and Raw/Smackdown deck building rules still apply. Superstar sets will be updated shortly.  The post above this shows the new upgraded 560 card cube.

Played in two of these at Gencon this weekend (John Cena = AMAZING).

We need to sticky this and make it a regular format of some sort. I don't care how, this needs to be an official thing.

Seconded on stickyness

Building my own Cube for West Coast.  Pretty much going to demand we start playing this, as it's so much fun.

This thing could use with some formatting, though.

Luckily, got a program for that. Next up....8-way connection for a Lackey cube...somehow.

I got playing someone else's <R> Kane after 1 round on Sunday.

To be fair, I did kinda bone myself on Jeff Hardy during the first one.



But yea, we need to have a Cube format next year as an official tournament for Gen Con.  If I can go (and defend the SuperShow Champinship), I will put my name down for it.

I built the cube itself on lackey, even added in a second virtual lackey build as well. only problem is once the drafting is done how you actually build the deck and play someone else since you would have to leave the screen, you can't save the decks after drafting

that hits pretty nice James, i'll look tomorrow to see if theres anything else to possibly put in that won't be so damaging

Given adding in virtual does that mean a virtual Cube draft goes by the pack 12-12 play 6-6 backlash?

I wouldn't add the 12-12 play 6-6 unless you add more cards from packs... With Virtual I'd try it first with 10-10 play 5-5 and going from there to see if it needs to get bigger, which these cards don't really necessitate doing.

Some new positive updates for the cube. Players will have access to one elbow to the face and one you're as graceful as a cow on ice during deckbuilding.  There is still an elbow and a cow in the cube.  Cow is not active for the purposes of the cube so you can have two in play if you happen to draft the other cow.  Volley this was considered, but cow answers the same problem volley this was trying to address.  There are some new superstars with their sets updated and some new cards added to the cube for some of the duds to enhance synergies with high risks and solid picks all around.  I will post the updated list over the next week or so.

Question:  How do you make sure that the packs people draw from have enough pre-match, mid-match and other cards? If you have 6 players you will only be using 300 of the cards in the cube, do you shuffle everything together than deal out cards?

Thanks............. .John

Yeah.  You shuffle it up.  It is all randomized.  There haven't really been backlash deck issues even with four people

If you don't have access to any Revolution cards, what would be a recommended starting cube?

The number of revolution cards in the cube is rather slim.  Probably, 20-30 cards.  I would recommend just replacing those with cards you remember enjoying playing with that are not on the current cube list.
