<![CDATA[Xi Cards at the UKGE]]>Mon, 29 May 2017 15:12:17 GMThttp://xicards.com/news/xi-cards-at-the-ukge
Less than a week until this year's UK Games Expo!

https://www.ukgamesexpo.co.uk/

We're really excited, and will be running our usual Xi Cards gaming space, as well as showing off exclusive previews and artwork from our next set, Xi Advanced.

You can find us at stand K22.

Come along and have a game, chat to the team and, if you like, get some cards to boost your collection!

what about your annual tournament..?

Visit our stand K22 and ask about our sealed event.
A fantastic tournament t-shirt is up for grabs!

Unfortunately we haven't been allowed to use event space at the UKGE this year. However, we are determined to run an event, so this year we are introducing the UKGE Xi Cards Open Gaming Tournament.
We've been told we're allowed to play Xi Cards (like any other game) in the open gaming space, so we'll coordinate with players before hand and find some tables to play some sealed games!
For the absolute bargain price of £4 you can buy 8 booster packs and design your sealed deck to play against your opponents. Visit us at our stand on the Friday or Saturday for more details on how to get involved.

<![CDATA[Robots, Spam, Xi Cards & Christmas]]>Wed, 21 Dec 2016 10:10:43 GMThttp://xicards.com/news/robots-spam-xi-cards-christmasThis morning a message was sent to Xi Cards website admin through our contact form which, as best as I can tell, came from a robot. I can't be certain, but messages that start

" Warm Greetings

Hello Admin, I like your website you have gave awesome information and being a Big fan of your website, I always prefer your website for any information"

I tend to treat with some sceptiscism!

The funny thing is, the message goes on to complain that our blog comments are filled with too much robot spam XD !

The robot was right so we've tried to tighten up on comments a little - hopefully you'll see less spam in future.

In other news the "Wombat Ged" card for Xi Advanced is now ready. Wombat Ged is a key character to the story of the second set (he is trying to prevent Hoyd from being corrupted) and you can expect to here more about him in the future.

Hoping you have a Merry Christmas & a few good games of Xi...

Chris

<![CDATA[The Celestial Ravager - A Xi Advanced Preview]]>Sat, 12 Nov 2016 17:29:35 GMThttp://xicards.com/news/the-celestial-ravager-a-xi-advanced-preview
It has been a while since an update, but I've found some free time and thought I'd let you guys know what's going on with Xi Cards...

We enjoyed meeting new players and having some games recently at WynterCon 2016 (Oligarchy by Gary Wareham is looking good! www.oligarchygame.com/)

We've also booked ourselves back into the UK Games Expo 2017 and are looking forward to more games and hopefully a tournament there.

Things are moving slowly with Xi Advanced... but development is still chugging along in the background!

Check out our Celestial Ravager preview... a card still in the playtesting phase of development but likely to look something like what you see on the left.

Happy gaming!
Chris

We had a great time at the UK Games expo this year. Thanks to everyone that visited the stand. Hopefully we'll see many of you again for more games next year!

I haven't put up an update for a while now but fear not, work is still going on behind the scenes!

Soon I hope to be able to share a preview with you for our first prepared card of the second set... and if that isn't enough for you, I'm happy to be able to announce that Xi Cards will once again be running a bigger, better stand at the UK Games Expo at the end of May this year!

We'll have plenty of space for you to play Xi with us or your friends, Expo deals and some of our 50 remaining limited edition "Rift Fortress" cards up for grabs. As well as this we'll be running our second "World Tournament" in the evening for anyone who wants to compete (details to follow...) It's going to be awesome!
