Stoneblade Entertainment, Makers of ‘Ascension,’ Announce New Game

Stone Blade Entertainment has announced the release of Bad Beets, its first physical card game product outside the popular Ascension deck-building game, for Summer 2015.


Designed by famed Magic the Gathering player Justin Gary (Ascension, Redakai), Bad Beets is a family-friendly, bluffing card game where players must eat their vegetables.  Players start with eight Beet cards that they must finish before they can leave the dinner table, and they can get rid of them in a variety of creative ways: Feeding the Dog, Sharing, or Eating Them.  The first player to successfully finish their beets wins.

The game is for 2 – 5 players, ages 8 and up. The game plays in 10-15 minutes. MSRP is $14.99.

Stone Blade Entertainment’s other non-Ascension release is the digital-only trading card game SolForge, which it produced with Richard Garfield in 2012.  Stone Blade’s latest Ascension release, Dawn of Champions, will arrive to Battleground Games & Hobbies this month.

Bushiroad to Release ‘Love Live! DX’ Expansion for Weiss Schwarz

Bushiroad will release the new Love Live! DX booster expansion for its Weiss Schwarz TCG on June 26th, as originally reported by hobby news website


The DX (deluxe) booster is a new release tied to the same property as last year’s Love Live! Trial Deck and Booster.  The set is based on the Love Live! School Idol Project multimedia property that includes manga, music CD’s, anime and video games about a group of school girls who become idols to save their school from shutting down.  The new Love Live! DX booster includes a special mix of cards from two Japanese releases: Booster Pack Love Live! feat. School Idol Festival and Extra Booster Love Live!.  Certain card specifications in this English set will differ from the Japanese edition cards.

The booster will include 107 cards including 28 parallel cards. Gold Foil/Hot Stamp chase cards featuring autographs (2 sets) from all nine members of the group “μ’s” (pronounced muse) will be randomly inserted into packs.  Each booster includes eight cards, with 20 boosters per display, and  16 displays per carton.  The English Edition does not include gold/silver campaign coupons.  With this set, English and Japanese cards may be played together in tournament formats (except in Japan).  Two PR cards out of 6 types and 1 Love Live! School Idol Festival Mobile Game serial code will be included in each display as a supplement.  Each carton will also include 4 rubber play mats (1 design).

This set will follow the May release of KanColle Trial Deck & Booster Pack. An exciting time to be a Weiss Schwarz fan!


Please don’t forget to join us every Saturday at Battleground Games & Hobbies in Abington, MA for our weekly Weiss Schwarz events! We look forward to seeing you.

AEG to Release ‘Game of Crowns’ Board Game

Alderac Entertainment Group will release Game of Crowns in June, according to hobby news website


The game is designed by Remo Conzadori, with art by Pascal Quidault.  Players control one of the nine noble houses of the Ruelen Empire, and with the ruler’s death, they are each attempting to gain enough control and influence to claim the crown.  Players can exchange cards and favors through diplomacy, or attack opponents through warfare to gain what they need.

The box contains 90 House cards, 18 Vote cards, 11 Guest cards, 37 Raven tokens, 9 Reference cards, and a round track.  The game is for 4-9 players, ages 14 and up, and plays in 45 minutes.  MSRP is $29.99, which is a great price point.


Does this sound familiar? If it does, perhaps that’s because it seems awfully similar in concept to Game of Thrones. Even a similar name.


What do you think of Game of Crowns? Let us know in the comments below or sound of on Facebook or Twitter! If you’d like to see this game on our shelves, contact us here!
