The World of Warcraft Trading Card game
has released its latest expansion, but it's a little bit different than what's come before. It's called Arena Grand Melee, and it actually changes the gameplay of the TCG just a little bit, including some very different mechanics than those players have seen before. For instance, there's a card called "For the Fallen" that will grant additional cards to players when they act out their melee strikes in real-life. Another card called "Steamwheedle Casino" has players playing a quick game of Blackjack with their WoW
TCG cards to win an extra card. Arena Grand Melee sounds it puts a very strange twist on the current TCG game.
The WoW TCG site has been highlighting some of the new cards in the game -- there's a new ability called Preparation
, which allows you to use a card twice in quick succession, and there are cards that boost your hand size and beef up your allies
, as well as cards that offer up some other new heroes
and abilities. It sounds like an interesting addition to the game, but on the other hand, this doesn't seem like a pack for newbies -- experienced players will get the best thrill from these twists. Pick up the eighty card sets in either of the Horde or Alliance versions at your local gaming store.
