Doomtown Returns

So the weird west is on its way back to a card game format with Doomtown: Reloaded. I am very excited about this news, a little less so until I hear plans for the Sioux Union or a similar faction but I will make due until a faction similar to the ones I played comes out. This is one of the games that loved and just couldn't get anyone to play in my area, it probably didn't that I was 16 or 17 and trying to teach people how to play the game but I couldn't find anyone else in the area to take the torch. I played in a few of the large Origins tournaments with cobbled together decks and that is where I learned how to play the game. That is also where I met some of the most generous people playing CCGs at that time, people who ave others promos and copies of staple cards to help the community and what built the backbone of how I try to conduct all my trades in every game I have played since.

I want to try and get Doomtown rolling in my area as soon as I can, I am going to start making homebrew prize kits of poker chips as soon as the rules come out so I can have something to build buzz about the game. I am going to try and do deck construction for the new game here as well as card review and hopefully tournament reports.
