Release Review: Allies of Necessity

You may be wondering why The Shadow Archive has been quiet since Worlds. Well, without getting into too much detail, our webmaster/host had some big life changes and then spent some extra time working on a super secret project for the Archive that will be announced in the next few months. However, we don’t want to […]

Worlds 2017 Day Two: Top Cut

When a regular player doesn’t make the Top Cut, there’s not a lot for them to do on Day Two. Unfortunately, I’m not a regular player, so I was at the tables along with the competitors, live-tweeting each match I decided to cover. For posterity, here you can look back at each of the games […]

Worlds 2017 Day One: Swiss

As Day One wraps up, we should congratulate the players who made the top cut. A significant contingent from the Minneapolis metagame have made a remarkable showing, bringing five players into the cut, even some who are brand-new players. Of the other players in the top sixteen, there are a number of returning faces: Norman […]

Introduction to Star Wars Worlds 2017

It’s May the Fourth, so you know what that means: the Star Wars World Champio… yeah, I wouldn’t be surprised if you were feeling a little thrown off too. After all, last year’s World Championship was only six months ago, and the National and North American Championships are occurring after Worlds this year. But this […]

Release Review: Power of the Force

We have the Power of the Force! And good lord is this a Force Pack. I could be wrong, but as far as I can tell, at least 4 of these objective sets are bonkers. And time will tell how good Ezra Bridger ends up being. If you’re unsure whether or not to buy this […]

Release Review: Scrap Metal

Scrap Metal has released and that means Jabba the Hutt is here to take command of the Scum and Villainy of the galaxy. There’s a number of fascinating pods in this pack, between R2-D2 whose role in deckbuilding is unclear to the Dragonsnakes that demand to be played with other Creatures. Overall, I’d say that […]

He’s constructed some brilliant photoshop templates that allow you to make your own Arkham Horror cards—from investigators to assets and events to custom […]

Release Review: Meditation and Mastery

We continue in our tradition of week-long release reviews. Where the last pack brought Smugglers one of their better sets in recent memory, this pack is all about the Rebels. Wedge is explicitly the strongest objective set in the pack, and might be one of the better Rebel sets that’s come out for the past […]
