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. We actually printed nearly 5 times the number of boxes as stores had pre-ordered. Obviously the response has exceeded even our wildest expectations. The digital version of the game has also proved extremely popular. We are going back to print as quickly as possible.

In the second installment of the DC Comics Deck-building franchise, you will take on the role of Shazam!, Hawkman, or one of their brave and heroic allies in the struggle against the forces of Super-Villainy! Each Super Hero has a unique ability that will drive the strategy of your game. While you begin armed with only the ability to Punch your foes, as the game progresses, you will add new, more powerful cards to your deck, with the goal of defeating as many DC Comics Super-Villains as you can. When all the bad guys are dead, justice has been served and the hero who has earned the most victory in battle officially saves the day.

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...
