The Spoils Review

image

The Spoils is a collectable trading card game, as you can see the art work on the box is very different and stylised, let’s be clear here, this style doesn’t end.

This is a shot of the back of the box, I Al really loving the logo, might have to order a T-shirt soon.

As it says on the back it’s a basic box of awesomeness. Now while I will agree it’s awesome it’s not basic 5 preconstructed 39 card decks which is enough to make 2 tournament decks as well as 10 foil cards. Giving you 205 cards 20 cards short of three 75 card tournament decks!!

10 foils. 5 random and 5 resource.

The artwork on the card are all very much top notch with a quality feel. The information, and on some cards there is a lot, is easily laid out but sometimes looks a bit cluttered due to the amount, but the functionality works well.

I nearly forgot to say that it has a small pamphlet with the rules on one side and the definitions in the other. It’s only a quick start guide but is more than enough to baffle me until the third reading at which point a light bulb went off and it all started to slot into place.

Now to find another person to have a trial game with so I can see if the game flows as well as it looks.

To finish the unboxing I shall provide a picture of everything in situ in the box as it arrived, do you have any idea how hard it is to take pictures instead off just ripping into the packaging.

As you can see the 5 39 card decks fit snuggly in the box and I would hazard a guess that you could fit double the cards into this stylish little box with room for a few dice and counters.

So far I have to say I am impressed.
