We would like to take this opportunity to talk about the For the Glory! Booster packs and the future of Card Wars. When Card Wars was first being conceived, our only releases planned were the two recent Collector’s Packs, and a NiceLands Collector's Pack later this year.

A couple of housekeeping notes for the trading card community regarding the Revenge Season 1 Trading Cards, and the Archer Seasons 1 – 4 Trading Cards.

As many of you have noticed, the base set for the Revenge cards is quite large. This means that it isn’t likely to open a complete base set of the cards from one box. Here is a quick breakdown of why that happens...
