WoW TCG Is a Hit

Alena Going Through WoW TCG CardsToday we spent the most of the day interacting with WoW TCG (or looking where to get it).

Initially I called GameSpot on Kings Plaza to find out if they had any booster packs in stock. They said they did. Sadly, when we got there, we discovered that there are 3 GameSpot’s there and all 3 of them had everything sold out. Checked some stores on 86th, same deal. I did a search online and found some obscure store in Brooklyn China Town (58th Street and 8th Avenue) and they said they had some in stock. When we got there, they indeed had some in stock – a full unopened box (24 packs)! :!: And we bought the full box for $85 instead of a $100 that we’d end up paying in GameSpot or EB Games and such. Needless to say we were pretty happy. mrgreen

So we put aside the new box and decided to split the opened up (with 23 packs) between ourselves. Alena got 11 and I got 12. teeth We found 2 epics in ours, and I was pretty happy. Alena was upset that we didn’t get a legendary turtle.

Maruk called and said that he wanted to chill, but Alina was not feeling well, so he would be alone. I figured that I can’t really wait until tomorrow with his gift (yeah, if you didn’t guess yet, “one other person” in the previous post was him) for his birthday, and told him to come over.

He came over, we gave him the present, explained what it was and how it worked and he seemed to enjoy it as much as we did. Went through opening 24 packs, found 2 epics as well, one of which was Leeroy Jenkins.

We spent all evening playing matches and constructing decks. I don’t think I’ve ever had as much fun playing a non-computer game. We finished our last match about about 3:30am. o.O So technically Maruk left with his present on November 5th, his birthday.

P.S. It’s still hard to understand some aspects of the game, but a video from Gaming Report was extremely helpful.
