So, bought my copy today! Haven't had the chance to play it yet! But first impressions are really good! Seems to be a fast-paced game faithful to some of the best things we like in WWE!

I just think the Tag-Team rules could be a little different, but other than that, I think the game has a lot of potential!

I hope other superstars and divas will be added soon and also more cards for each player.

A rep at Gencon just told my friend that the "Divas" expansions is already off to the printers.

Apparently they had Hulk Hogan promos to give away too, but were, obviously, forbidden from doing so at the last second. As collectibles go, anyone who does snag one will probably have something incredibly rare.

I played tag team at Gen Con. It was a lot of fun! The only bummer is the person not in the ring doesn't do much, but you can still talk strategy and game plans with then before or after tag in/out.

How does the game work? I'm really interested in the mechanics and as a long time wrestling fan hope for finally some good wrestling game! From my games library I can tell that: Luchador dice is ok but more like an experience than a game (total randomness), Legends of Wrestling (and whole Filsinger games series) is like simulation, not a game (almost no decisions), Total rumble is a filler with numbers and pasted on theme and WCW Nitro isn't good.

My concern regarding WWE Showdown is that from rulebook it seems to combine Yomi's gloryfied rock-paper-scissors mechanic (which is ok in a qucik 2 player game) with WCW Nitro's (and probably other games) system of taking damadge from draw deck (which I personally don't like). My concern is that it's a random cardfest, especially when you have to discard good cards from your deck after loosing to rather random outguessing game of rock-scissors-paper...

DDPage, I've played the game about 6 times. I really like this game. I had similar worries about losing good cards and randomness of r.s.p. Losing cards can be bad, but we mitigated the loss by starting out with your finishing moves in your discard pile. So you cannot lose them on the first go around. Some cards are better than others, they are close enough that you will still have winning possibilities. RPS has some randomness, but playing a block (instant lose - no damage) or slam (instant win) helps a lot.
