Supershow / Supershow Going Over 3 days left!
March 21, 2020, 07:21:36 AM

In February we launched a Kickstarter for the latest installment of Supershow the game, with hopes that I would be our biggest campaign yet. We are grateful of the support that so far it has lived up to its hype. With all the craziness that is going in with covid-19 now more then ever we appreciate the overwhelming support. As a token of our appreciation to those who supported us we have unlocked ALL stretch goals for our backers, which were originally aimed at a much higher level. All support is appreciated, sharing, backing of course. I personally greatly appreciate the $1 backing because regardless of your interest in the game or situation you took the time to say, I hope you succeed.
Anyway, most importantly if your quarantined like myself and family, we hope you stay, safe, calm, connected and logical at this time.
Best Regards.
Classic Raw Deal / The Longevity of Rawdeal Question
March 04, 2020, 08:13:50 AM
I had a conversation with someone the other day at PAX east about how long the classic version of Rawdeal had lasted "successfully" from a sales stand point. This person (who to my knowledge did not play at all) was certain that according to her research he game did not last 5 years in its original version.. I said I lived through it and it lasted for more than 5 years, citing the card 5th anniversary. Anyway, I didn't have the time to argue this point. I could be wrong, so I am curious if anyone has an knowledge on this.
Last night in Louisville Kentucky, Supershow held its first World Championship Title defense.
This was a historic and special occasion for us as a Traveling title has always been the goal for us.
Sammi "The Draw" Callihan, who won the first World championship on the Chris Jericho, rock and wrestling Rager at sea (playing Sammi Callihan), went up against 2018 breakout star of the year " the Baanomenal "1 Kirk Polka. Polka earned his shot at the gold by winning a number 1 contenders event with AJ Styles.
After months of #notmychampion post from the SRG Universe, (many feel
John Polverino is the true heir to the title by winning a much larger GenCon event that pre dated the actual title), would have his chance to silence the non believers and defend his title.
General Manager John Calace he seemed to support Sammi throughout his tenure as champion, switch side when Polka was named number 1 contender. Calace who had bad blood with Polka had set aside there differences over a contract negotiation that among other things set the match to be a no dq match. This took away the draws champions advantage.

And the match underway.
The Draw (championship)  vs AJ Styles (champion of Kickstarter)
starts by locking the champ in an arm bar. He then sends him
Into the turn buckle and hits a splash in the corner. Sammi tried to rally back with a jaw jammer, but is stopped with a lock up. AJ drops the champ with the STYLES CLASH! Go for the cover and the champ NO SELLS breaking out before the 1 count. The Draw rallies back with an elevated arm bar, then slams the champ into the barricade. He goes for a blindside choke and get hip tossed by the challenger. Sammi grabs his trademark baseball bat and swings at the challenger, who counters with a single leg crab. The Champ rolled through the submission and locks in the Stretch muffler, the crowd chants Tap! Tap! Tap!, JUST before tapping out AJ Breaks the Hold. O-V-E chants break out,
Too sheep chants break out! Crowd is on there feet.
Aj battles back tossing a rolling forearm, but it's counters with a snap headlock, the champ takes over with a ladder setting up for something extreme! The 2 take a huge bump, and Sammi Rises again with the baseball bat! This time it connects.

Your winner and STILL, you LFF World Champion. Sammi Callihan.

October 16, 2016, 08:45:58 PM
The Create a Competitor Competition is officially back. So let me be the first to welcome you to the Legendary Fighting Federation. Think you have what it takes to join the ranks of El Super Hombre and Snake Pitt? Here is your shot to impress the head of Talent Relations for the LFF. Mr. Rock Newman.

Here is what he needs to know.

Your Gimmick. Is your Competitor ruthless like Snake Pitt, or Maybe you earn your keep by selling buttery delicious pretzels like Merlin Von Berlin? Tell him all about your competitor, spare no details, this is your best shot to make a lasting impression on the man behind a Spectacle so Grand, it can only be called... The Supershow

Your Backstory. What brought your competitor into the life of underground competition? Did they have a wrestling background like El Super Hombre and Snake Pitt? Or was he sick of delivering Chinese food like The Rising Sun? Tell us why Rock Newman would look to track them down, or how they somehow found the Legendary Fighting Federation.

Your Size and Stature.

Is the Competitor larger than life like the Big Shot with a physique that speaks for itself, or is he your average Mark, like the Shark looking to make a name for himself in the LFF? Tell us about the build of your competitor.

Look and entrance

What does the ring gear look like? The mask, the tights, the pads, every little detail. What is the entrance like, is it simple and to the point like the Classic Competitor Scott Prime, or did you come straight from the ER like the Wreck?

Your Skills in the Ring.

Is your competitor a Power House like El Hombre Super Hombre, a scrappy little fighter like the Masked Llama, maybe they are a vicious like Snake Pitt? What moves do they use and what is their fighting style like?

What are their Finishes?

Nothing sets a Competitor apart like their big FINISH! Please describe the moves the competitor uses to end a match.

Many competitors will be featured in storylines and card art, however only One Competitor will receive a personal invitation from Rock Newman and will Join a Supershow right away. The winning creator will receive 10 extra copies of his or her competitor and will work directly with our play-test team to create a Supershow Competitor. This competition starts right now and will be closed on November 20. The winning competitor is set to debut before the years end. Competitors will be submitted via email, Facebook post, and on We will consolidate all submissions and have a winner chosen via voting. Good luck Rookies. You'll need it.

Too Bump? Or not to Bump? That is todays question. Deny thy turn to replenish thy hand is the strategy.

Today at Legendary Realms, I am running the Hammish MacDeath, we have a great turnout for a Tuesday night of 12 players plus 3 new players learning Supershow.

Round One :
Since we have a player running late I'm put into a triple threat match, versus Johnny Gargano and the Mercinator. GM declares it will be an elimination match, he makes a special ruling that after any Elimination the Crowd Meter will raise 1. I have a unique advantage in this match, being Hammish MacDeath I can opt out of bumps, set my hand up, which gives my opponent the option to attack another player. This is extra effective when we triple bump, because I can force my opponents to target each other. Maybe even eliminate each other, while I safely build up my hand.
I try to hit both my opponents with Exit, Hugged by a Bear several times before it gets locked in. It leads to a near fall on the Mercinator. He battles back into the match as I selectively opt out of turns grabbing my follow up stops. Gargano sets himself up for an Atomic Clothesline but Mercinator TKO's him with a Bullseye. The Mericnator and I battle back for a few turns before I drop him with the Scottish move.

Round 2
Vs Ricochet
3 Game Set

Game 1
James has been running Ricochet from his release, when there were just 3 flip cards in cards 1-27. Over time Ricochet would become a force to be reckon with. The first game, I jump ahead early with a falling powerslam, then I counter his 630 with a chicken wing Zack Sabre Jr. style. I hit the middle rope and nail the Horns of Falstaff. An 8 Finish roll puts this away early.

Game 2
James says this is how his last match went, and is confident he can come back.
This is a great match up, every time I opt to use my Gimmick I give Ricochet the opportunity to flip some cards and replenish his hand. So o must be very selective. He has a bunch of opportunities to put me away but I keep on breaking out. Eventually with 0 cards left in his deck he is able to push through an Argentine Stretch and force a tap out.

Game 3
Special Guest Referee Lorenzo Manicotti, which means both of us get to use Lorenzo's Gimmick.
Will Lorenzo call it right down the middle or will he favor one of us??? Turns out neither one of us pack ANY cards that shuffle the deck. So he calls it right down the middle.
This match will start at level one being that it's game 3.
Early on he sets me up with a belly to belly suplex to grab himself a press slam. He throws a back breaker and I let it hit since he has nothing significant in his discard pile. He flipped a 630, off the back breaker and nails it for the win.

Round 3
Vs Johnny Gargano
Game 1
We meet again after our Triple threat. This time my stage is a Cage!
The Steel cage shuts my whole Gimmick down, and only half of his. However my deck is heavy on flipping cards which could give me the advantage. Johnny tosses me around for a little bit. I cant seem to maintain any offense. I bump into a counter with a falling Powerslam, and hit him with the Scottish move out of nowhere! This game is over fast in shocking fashion.

Game 2
I've give my opponent the option of entering the cage again, and he accepts. This game has much more back and fourth as we race to exit. I hit the Scottish move early flipping 6 ( and removing them from the game). He kicks out, but I maintain the offense and put him away with Exit, Hugged by a Bear.

Round 4
At this point we have 2 undefeated facing off, and Iam set to face Max Bruder with the Masked Llama.

Game 1
Bruder is taking a break from the Mallot Swinging Freak D2, and boy the Llama is on the loose. Game 1 is a runaway. I managed to fend off a 360 Reverse Diving Hoof Tackle, but shortly after I get planted with an Alpaca Driver.

Game 2
Hammish is not going to take that beating lightly, my event is on the line and I am fighting hard. We have a solid back and fourth match up, but I manage to absolutely steal this one with a Horns of Falstaff.

Game 3
The GM decrees it will be a Strap Match. Both us are tied together with a leather strap restricting how much we can move. Our momentum is tied together on this one.

The Stipulation.
Max handsize 6.
Whenever a player wins a turn roll, all players draw 1 card.

You get to see a lot of cards very fast, however you hand is very restricted. This one is going to be a slugfest. I come out the gate swinging, and I don't stop. Masked llama has no answers for me in this one. Scottish Move. MacDeath 3:16 says. Something witty in Iambic Pentameter.

We are off to the semi finals match.

Ricochet is the sole undefeated and the finals are left with myself, Snake Pitt, and Liger.

The GM declares the following contest will be scheduled for 1 fall. Whoever pins an opponent or counts out both opponents will advance to face Ricochet for the number 1 contender.

The stage is set for great triple threat match, All 3 of us have excellent Gimmicks in a triple threat. Liger just needs 1 lariat against any opponent to pump up his Skills, Snake Pitt can pump up his Skills when he is behind ANY opponent and as stated before I can selectively opt out of the action. (Even though this is not as effective in a first fall match, as it is elimination it still would prove itself very useful).

My Strategy here, use my gimmick as much as possible to pick up a stop and a Finish. Liger jumps ahead with an early lariat and seems to be dominating. I insist on pushing through a Scottish move and can't seem to Hit it. Just when it seems to hit on Liger, Snake Pitt buries his hand to make the save. This puts him Gimmick in effect and he battles back. Liger begins his onslaught. Liger drops me with a Donkey Lariat and I manage to kick out. Snake Pitt and Liger go at it for a while, and I throw the Scottish move over and over. Finally it Hits on Snake Pitt. He breaks out right before the 3 count. Next up, is a Lariat Bomb for Snake Pitt. The Crowd is pumped up to Level 3 so this one ends it with a 13... But Hammish Makes the save and breaks up the pin. All three competitors have thrown everything they have in this one.  Snake Pitt begins to take control. This design is piloted by Thomas Giuliante. A design he calls Sui-Pitt. The tech is to combo with his Gimmick adds use cards to add to  his turns rolls. The fight is taking  to the outside of the ring, and we scramble to Finish one another. Liger goes for a Liger Tamer on me. With just 1 card in hand and 0 cards in deck, Snake Pitt comes in with the save and drops liger with  a Fallaway slam. Snake Pitt manages to slide into the ring, and scores the double count out.

Thomas Giuliante Snake Pitt.

Thomas Giuliante Snake Pitt vs James Canty Ricochet.

Since James is undefeated, as per the GM Thomas must win 2 matches to win the event. James must win just 1 to earn a shot at  William Wagner's  Amazing Red.

Final Round.

Just like that.
Ricochet is the number 1 contender.
