Planechase 2012!!

Ok, this is something I'd very much like to shout about; PLANECHASE 2012 IS COMING!
Last year wizards of the coast spoiled this amazing event and I've been slightly giddy about it's coming ever since. For people that aren't familiar with this format...

A couple of years ago, wizards released the original Planechase game. It consisted of a 4 pack release containing normal 60 card decks and 10 Planechase cards, different in every pack.
The idea was that the Planechase cards would represent the world that you were duelling on. There are a few different ways to play but all revolve around a dice controlling when you jump between worlds.
(Anyone wishing to have a go at this format should feel free to ask me any time.)

The trident looking logo (Planewalker Symbol) makes you jump worlds,
the other is the 'Chaos' symbol and triggers a secondary ability on each plane.
Each dice contains only 1 side with each symbol and 4 blanks.
Each set came and will come with a dice :D

I've had so many ridiculously fun games with the original set that I have high hopes for this coming release. A couple of events worth mentioning are the first time I showed my friends Sam, Burt, Dave and Gary. Sam straight away, 1 land in, rolled and created himself a 5/5 flying dragon curtest of 'Shiv'. It was by no means a game changer.

Secondly, the first time I played against my other half, we both became very stuck on 'Celestine Reef'.

Anyway, here is a link to the new cards that are coming within this set and a link to Kids Dreams were you can order any or all of the 4 decks; Chaos Reigns, Night of the Ninja, Primordial Hunger, and Savage Auras, before or after their release on June the 1st. I'll be posting more about it as we get ever closer to it's release.

For now I'm an excitable Olly for Team GGUK


  1. Yes! Cannot wait for this. Gunna buy me all 4 decks.

    1. Haha, same :D Already pre-ordered. It's gonna be so good.
      Dude, we should totally do that 2 v 2, natives v invaders, when it's released!

    2. Should be a great release, it will be good to play some multi player games for a change! Not sure what Wizards have planned for the launch, I hope its well supported!
