As recently announced Vortex will be the final set to be printed for Kaijudo.

http://www.kaijudo.com/blog/news/vortex-kaijudos-final-paper-tcg-release

Atlantis has a small but solid community of Kaijudo players so while we're sad to see the game go away we also realize this doesn't mean that the game isn't still fun. We decided to come up with a new casual format similar to Commander for Magic. Normal organized play supported by Wizards will continue up through October. After that we will continue doing events using our new casual format. Ladies and gentleman...let me introduce you to:

 

Kaijudo Monarchs

Rules updated 8/28/2014

We will begin playtesting these rules today and there may be changes as we encounter problems but any changes will be updated here.

  • Your monarch has to be a three star rare or higher (promos with no stars count as 3 stars)
  • Your deck consists of 75 cards (74 card deck + 1 Monarch)
  • You start the game with 8 shields.
  • You can only use two copies of any card excluding your Monarch which you can only have one of.
  • In a multiplayer game the starting player draws a card on their first turn.
  • If your Monarch would be sent to the discard pile you may put it back into The Veil. It may be re-cast later but each time you cast it after the first it will cost two additional mana.
  • The Veil is the zone where your Monarch sits and is considered removed from play until you cast it.
  • Your deck can only be made of cards from the civilization and allied civilizations of your Monarch.
  • Cards from any released set of Kaijudo are legal.

Warhammer 40K Open Tournament Rules PDF Print E-mail

In regards to our Warhammer 40k/Fantasy tournaments:

It is our stance that our main priority is to foster a healthy, competitive, and fair tournament environment. While there are a great many ways to run a Warhammer tournament, none of them appease everyone so the onus is on the organizers and the shop to maintain the standard to which we want to adhere. 

 

-Tournaments will be announced on the Atlantis website with a corresponding post in the events section of the forums. Though we will try to have all of the details up immediately, new rules and supplements are coming out that may not be available at the time of event creation. Instead of taking the stance that these will not be allowed for the tournament, we withhold the right to make changes to the allowed supplements/books for up to one month before the tournament. Any rule material that comes out less than one month before the tournament is NOT allowed. We will update the event post with any and all changes to the best of our ability. It will be the standard that we hold to as it is easily seen by everyone. 


-All players must be able to show all the applicable rules for their forces upon demand. This means that every player must have a copy (either physical or digital) of every rule book/supplement/data slate that they are utilizing. This also means that every player must have a current set of their errata/faq’s.

Atlantis does have an on-site printer and will allow you to purchase print outs of your faq.

 

-Proxy models/"counts as"/alternate company models: We are not a Games Workshop store, nor are our tournaments supported by them, thus we see no need to adhere to a strict "ONLY GW" models rule that other tournament formats use. Models may come from alternate ranges WITHIN REASON! Models should adequately show proper weapons or wargear that would normally be associated with the model (i.e. weapons or special gear) and are on the proper base.

 

Use common sense to determine whether or not a proxy/counts as model is alright to use. Ultimately, the Tournament organizer will have the final say and has the right to disallow any model not deemed suitable for the unit it is representing.  

 

A few common models that have been used:

Dreamforge Leviathans as Imperial Knights

Dreamforge heavy weapons squads as Imperial Guard Heavy weapons

Mantic Warpath Orcs as Space Orks

Warzone humans as Imperial Guard

 

 

-Armies are not required to be fully painted to participate in an organized event. Though we fully encourage our players to paint and theme their armies (a well painted army definitely rolls better dice. that

s a fact), we understand that doing so is a major time commitment. We will not penalize a general for an unpainted/poorly painted army in tournament scoring. 

 

-Painting will be its own category in the tournament. Just as generals should not be penalized for not painting their armies, they should be encouraged to improve their hobby skill every tournament. Our painting competition will be scored between the first and second games and will be judged by Atlantis staff.

This event is being held at our Norfolk Location

Saturday, May 10th

Registration opens at 6:00pm and ends at 6:30pm

Get there early, seating is limited!

 

BREAK OUT YOUR ORIGINAL DECK!

With support for over 20 different Decks, Primal Origin has new cards for everyone, from recent introductions like Noble Knight, Bujin, and Sylvan cards, to cards for tournament staples like Monarchs, Gladiator Beasts, and Dark World. Primal Origin also arms Duelists with new Chaos Xyz Monsters and the most powerful Rank-Up-Magic Spell card to date, Rank-Up-Magic - The Seventh One, a ‘must-have’ card for summoning Xyz Monsters right out of your Deck. Duelists will also be treated to a brand new theme, Artifact monsters, which cripple your opponent if they dare destroy them.

For fans of the animated series, Primal Origin is also the epic conclusion to the Barian War from Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL and features many of the cards seen in the ZEXAL animated series, including those used by the Seven Barian Emperors!

Participating stores will be randomly handing out exclusive Primal Origin Game Mats at the Sneak Peek. Plus, everybody will receive a limited edition, Ultra Rare Artifact Scythe card, and a Primal Origin mini-poster while supplies last! Supplies are limited, so show up early and don’t get left out!

As with every set, Primal Origin includes 10 Bonus Cards (previously available only in Japan), plus 10 World Premiere cards never before seen anywhere on Earth! You won't want to miss out!
