One more GenCon Announcement
« on: August 05, 2014, 10:03:14 PM »
Alas, there's one more thing to announce...

2014 PRIZE CARDS will make their debut at GenCon.

Prizes will include 4 new prize cards for Classic and the first ever Virtual Revolution prize cards.  In addition, there are advance copies with awesome alternate artwork (thanks, TimJR!) for The Shield and The Wyatt Family, along with a few of their support cards.

And finally, a promo card for Virtual 7: The NXT Generation will be available.

These cards will follow the usual 'legal when you get them', with one very major exception.

PRIZE CARDS ARE NOT LEGAL FOR THE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS.

Sorry, but we don't want to put the non-playtesters at the distinct disadvantage of preparing without familiarity of the cards we've been testing for the last few months.  Seems only fair.

Details to follow... from those who post them from GenCon. :)  This should be the most fun since we surprised everyone with the DX Promo in 2006, heh.

1) The Shield and Wyatts..WOOOOOOO!

2) I remember the DX give away. I think it was my first Gencon ever. I believe Brian and Jon (tripleh1mpt) were at the booth. We were talking about something and I think Jon and I got on the subject of TCO and then some indy wrestling. He said "if you can tell me who I am you get this promo." and I said "Uhhhhhhhh....Creed?" then guessed Antigoth. Brian gave me a look of "what the hell" that I could possibly ever assume that Jon was him.

First time meeting the TCO crew. Was a good time.

Because I can't not hype this more...

A BIG THANK YOU to Tony Vela AKA Velacards for his efforts in getting me the aforementioned 2014 prize support. A big portion of this year's World Championship (and the last several World Championships) have been prize supported MAINLY by Tony. I'm sure he would hate it if his PM box was flooded with either Raw Deal Card ORDERS or THANKS.  So please do so, I'm sure he would hate to hear how much you want to thank him AND/OR purchase from his Raw Deal store.

Having said that, I have a generous amount of the prize support flying in with me to Indy on Thursday afternoon for this year's Worlds.  Stay tuned for announcements on more prize support, news,  pictures of the tournament winners, and more as we play down to our 2014 Raw Deal World Champion in less than 1 week...

I'm getting hyped!
