Upper Deck has officially released the latest expansion
in the WoW
Trading Card Game -- the Blood of Gladiators is the game's eighth
expansion set (can you believe this game has been around for three years already?), and features new PvP action, including a new Duel Faction Ally card and a new Arena setting in the Gurubashi Arena. There are three new characters in the game as well, coming straight from the pages of the World of Warcraft
comic, with art by none other than Jim Lee. And of course it's got the loot cards we talked about
earlier, including the Foam Swords rack and the Sandbox Tiger. Can't wait to see those in the game.
Booster packs from the set run about $4 in most places, though demand for the game can actually drive the prices up at retail
if store owners feel they're running out too fast. Seems like, at this point, the WoW
TCG has its fans, and the online game does as well, and sometimes the two are not the same people. Anyone been waiting for this release, or, eight times in, is yet another expansion set actually business as usual in the collectible card game?
