Shade of the Devoured Emperor & Gencon World Championships Press Release

by Terence Jason Dorman & Ian Spiegel - Blum


Following the success of Seed 3: Fall of Marmothoa, Arcane Tinmen is proud to announce their next expansion set and the first in the Unlikely Heroes block for The Spoils Community Card Game (CCG): Shade of the Devoured Emperor!



Featuring 130 brand new cards, Shade of the Devoured Emperor returns to the world of Clockman, first seen in the original First Edition booster sets, as well as fan favorite Spoils characters, including Jo Ciendeilio, Pluck, Eldridge Gosche, and more!


Shade also marks a return to the booster pack format, allowing players to enjoy draft, sealed, and constructed formats!


Players can expect each of the five trades to get new tricks in Shade. While some game mechanics will be familiar, Shade also introduces exciting new game play strategies that are sure to entice players and shake up the metagame.


Arcane Tinmen is celebrating the release of this much-awaited set at Gen Con in Indianapolis August 15-18, where players will have their first chance to try out the new cards in a full schedule of casual and professional tournaments geared towards both the occasional player and seasoned pro.


Additionally, all players from around the globe are cordially invited to help celebrate a new era of Spoils by participating in the first ever The Spoils CCG World Championship Tournament!


The winner will take home a specially designed, custom Micromajig trophy, exclusive promotional cards and items, the title King of Lugubria, Master of 1337, Warden of Acrolos, Clockman, and Direstock, First of His or Her Name, Champion of the World, and an Open R&D card designed by the champion and featuring his or her likeness for release in a future set.
