Living Pokédex 

I was 37 away from completing a living Pokédex, but now Sun and Moon are out (well not in Europe yet), so I’m now 127 away from completing a living Pokédex.
Bought an EU 3DS, and am now streetpassing myself. Nerd win!

Gimme mo’ promo’s

Just a friendly reminder to get your Jirachi promo! The WiFi in our temporary housing is crap and my 3DS won’t connect to it. So I used my phone as a wifi hotspot and that worked. Hooray!!

I also ordered some Dice Masters promo cards from a German gaming store. I’m pleased with the purchase. My thought was that I’d keep a few for myself and friends and pass them out for Dice Masters Frankfurt when people stop by and play. The guy at Family Time Games in Indy did this and it was super helpful. Also playing a promo card makes you look cool 🙂

not sure why this is  posting sideways. oh wells.

Fist Full of Donuts eaten by Villains

Title says it all. While it was a lot of fun, Fist Full of Donuts was utterly devoured by a villains team. While playing against @Of_Dice_And_Men he fielded a very efficient Villains team. Captain Cold, Black Manta, and Cheetah were especially efficient. While discussing Diablo names, @Of_Dice_And_Men mentioned that one German randomized name was Stinkfaul der kalte (ultra lazy the cold is the rough translation, literal translation is stink lazy the cold). I continued to call Captain Cold Stinkfaul der kalte, because he just sat there and slowed me down. Very effecient, like a German engineered donut eating party.

I was a bit nervous to invite @Of_Dice_And_Men over to our temporary apartment. I’m not really clued into social nuance. However, @Of_Dice_And_Men knocked it out of the park with bringing cat treats for Kalle (der Kralle -the claw) and Nomi. He also brought some tasty craft beer. 10 of 10, hope he comes to play again.

So here is where I think my deck went wrong, and I think this might help for strategy in any limited collection.

  1. Use what you have, the closer you get to 20 dice in a team the better
  2. Have a midgame stragegy. One can’t go from early game straight into late game.
  3. Removal and ramp are very important

My first game I tried to attack as much as possible as quickly as possible. That dried up way too quickly partly because I couldn’t field and buy dice constantly. I had only 14 dice out of 20. I also had no 4 drops. I consistently was missing a four purchase character, and as soon as there was one or two villains on the board, I was hosed. I also didn’t have a response to a Joker making it impossible to field Hulk. Removal or ramp would’ve fixed this I think.

That being said, Fist Full of Donuts is no more! Now I have made Super Donuts!

Super Donuts

Basic Action Cards

Dark Avenger

Call to Action

Characters

Catwoman – Antihero x2

Harvey Bullock – Donut Enthusiast x 3 (aka Donut Dude)

Oracle – Hacker x2

Krypto – Super Loyal x2

Steel – John Henry Irons x2

Black Panter – T’Challa x1

Bane – Professional Criminal x1

Power Girl – Electromagnetic Spectrum Vision x3

Next post will be the strategy behind it all…

Fist Full of Donuts

That’s the name of the team I’m going to field the first time I play Dice Masters in Germany. I’ve bought the World’s Finest starter, the German version of the Avengers vs. X-Men Starter, and various packs of Uncanny X-Men and World’s Finest. The rest of the collection is still in storage waiting for us to move into our new place. That will happen in May, but until then, I’m working with this (not a complaint).

So without further adieu here is the list…

Fist Full of Donuts

Basic Action Cards

Power Bolt (Kraftwelle)

Call to Action

Characters

Falcon – Samuel Wilson

Catwoman – Antihero

Harvey Bullock – Donut Enthusiast

Ant-Man – Pym Particles

Black Panther – T’Challa

Bane – Professional Criminal

Spider-Man – Webslinger (Netzwerfer)

Hulk – Anger Issues (Wutausbrüche)

The strategy is get in some early damage in and then ramp into Hulk and ping him with Power Bolt for the increase in A if need be. I normally wouldn’t use Harvey Bullock, but he fits the fist type, fits the curve, and I had 3 dice of him. Plus how can you turn down dice with a donut?

Dice Masters Frankfurt

So on April 16th at 2:00 pm 30th at Terminal Entertainment, it looks like the first meeting of Frankfurt Dice Masters will take place! It may only be two or three people, but as long as the dice is rolling, size doesn’t matter (twss?)

 

 

Dice Masters Frankfurt

So as I mentioned in a previous post, I found a local Dice Masters player / collector here in the area. Yesterday we made our way to a game store in Frankfurt. Terminal Entertainment aka T3 is a great store. One side is a comic shop, and now they have a board game shop next door. While I will definitely go to the comic shop, the game shop is what I hope will be my gaming home in Germany.

The guy running the store spoke German really really fast, but I think I understood most of it. There was a sign posted in back for someone requesting Dice Masters players. The shop owner said, that the guy who posted it was from Spain, but spoke English really well. I’ve emailed him, and am hopeful for a response. I purchased a German/French AvX Starter. I’m super excited to finally have an AvX starter. It’s interesting that the cards are two sided. One side is German, the other is French. I also bought a World’s Finest Starter and 3 World’s Finest boosters. I think this is going to be a very strong set. I should probably devote a post just to it.

There is also a Dice Masters Deutschland facebook group. If you’re in Germany and play. I’d highly recommend it. My goal is to start/join a Frankfurt group. Dice Masters is a fun game, and relatively affordable. I like those things in a collectible game.

RK Post Custom Magic Tokens

So, on a whim I decided to order some custom magic tokens from artist RK Post. A friend of mine has a few and they look super neat. I ordered some. I asked for Art Deco Cat Soldier. He recently posted these to his Instagram feed.



I for one can’t wait to get my hands on them!
I also bought a new computer. I am thinking I will name it Dier or Wimmer.  Oh fun times.

Edit: This edit made with new computer! Oooooo!!

Hoopa!

Don’t forget to get the legendary Pokemon Hoopa if you’re in the US!  Go to a participating McDonald’s to download this long awaited legendary Pokemon.
