Somebody on facebook, claiming to be a tester of the game, said that the AEG's black box will contain a reworked Phase game.

Will this be true? We'll see at Black Friday, I guess...

Oh jeez duh...sorry everyone! I saw this posted on the AEG site but was TOTALLY confused by what it was and why they aren't just selling it like a normal game. Thoughts on buying it?

What is the history of this game? Was it ever released in CCG form? Did it get canceled?

I initially came upon Phase just from browsing the Geek six years ago. The concept seemed cool, and the couple art pieces looked good.

I've been bugging the designers and publishers ever since. All my PEMs and blogs always got a "Stay tuned!" answer.

We shall see.

It appears it was...shelved...for various reasons. I do not believe it has ever been released officially.

Hmm..which makes me wonder if this is the "official" release on Black Friday or simply an incomplete experiment thrown out there? Any idea what AEG might charge for this ?

I can say that I too am a Vanguard, playtester and a player of Phase - it will be what's in the black box this year.

AEG will be charging whatever the blackbox usually goes for I guess?

The game was never released until now.

Wow. I am aghast. Thanks FrostMist!
Phase actually does exist?!

Sooo, after the Blackbox is released, will its contents be readily available? How do these Blackbox promos usually work?

I think that's going to be more of a "pester John Wick" thing, since I thought all the rights reverted to him.

And man, the website went down for a while. Havn't seen them show up on their store yet. Has anyone seen any online stores selling the boxes?

I have seen nothing. I have been refreshing and watching the site like a hawk ever since 2:59 and I see no option to purchase the Black Box.

I really hope I do not miss the purchase option.

Ended up noticing that Paizo has them for sale through their website.

http://paizo.com/products/btpy9oz3?AEG-Black-Friday-Black-Bo...

Shipping seemed a bit expensive, but it mentioned that the box is something like 11 pounds, so...

Yikes, the price with shipping was definitely more than I intended to spend on this game as I do not know a lot about it.

Ditto!
$45+ for only a card game with little info is asking a lot. The original announcement of Phase ages ago really piqued my interest, but I'm reluctant to buy a pig in a poke.

Happened across the black box at my local game store, so I picked it up after hearing it was a brand new game and not re-releases or remains of older ones. Have read the rules, it seems pretty simple to play, and I like that it's not just another duel game about dropping your opponent to zero life.

I might get it if I see it from my usual online stores. But I kinda do like the original card designs more... and I'm not a huge fan of the tarot sized cards.
