So far this is the best card dueling game I've ever played.We mostly play Deathmatch because my opponent likes it more,but I love both Deathmatch and High Form matches.

I've bought both expansions with the base game and they are all extremely fun and balanced so far.

I've noticed that Everfrost was released in 2014 and Nethervoid in 2015,yet no new expansion in 2017.Are there any plans for a new one soon?

I talked to Vlaada in the CGE room at Gencon 2016 and asked him about future expansions. He explained that any additional factions are increasingly more difficult to playtest for balance against existing decks.

However, he also said that an app was in the works. He couldn't say if the app would ever see wide release, but that when it was finished, it would allow him to playtest much more efficiently. He explained that he did have a lot of ideas for future decks, but design would essentially be put on hold until the app was finished.

Well, I'm glad that there are plans for upcoming expansions.I also love the fact that he weights playtesting this much,because balance is the most crucial aspect for me in these type of games.

Let's hope the app will be finished soon, so that the new expansions get going

And to be honest,this would make an amazing app game.

That's why I love Vlaada.
Balance first and foremost. Not just more decks and more decks and more decks to make more money, a bit like L99 is doing with BattleCon or whatever else they touch.

Glad you're enjoying the game! In case you're not aware of it yet, you can play it online at BoardGameArena, which is free (and with permission, as far as I understand!) The only downside there is that the Nevervoid deck isn't implemented yet, but otherwise it's a fantastic way to play the game. Hope to see you on there!

That's really great to hear there's an app in development. While I really like playing at BGA, the absence of Nethervoid and drafting, and a few minor glitches, are disappointing.

I was just going to ask if there might be an app version. Would be an instant buy for me!!

Here's some new info.

In this thread (about Adrenaline), Paul Grogan links to this page with info about the upcoming AireCon. The bottom of the CGE list of games has this:

"Tash Kalar expansion - the third expansion will bring new tactics to the arena of Tash-Kalar"

So apparently an expansion is, indeed, in the works!

So for anyone who was at Airecon and tested the new Tash-Kalar expansion this weekend... any reports? What's the new faction like? Does it offer any interesting new mechanics (like the Gateway, or frozen abilities)?

Well I wasn't there, but I can answer that question. (I played it the week before.)

Yes, it does.

Well, I was hoping for some more detail than that. But if you're bound by an NDA of some sort, I understand.

Is it just a new deck expansion like Nethervoid? Or does it introduce anything new other than a new deck(new legendaries,new rules etc)

First question: yes.
Second question: the future is unclear.

So Etherweave seems like the opposite of Everfrost. Cool idea, lets see how it works.

What I wish for next expansion is a complete redesign of 2vs2 High Form, maybe bigger map, maybe some flares only for team playing, new legendaries.

This arena theme based games have so much potential, and I think there are opportunities in this "untouched" area of 2vs2 team play, where only tichu managed to succeed.

Hope the designers will somehow go to this direction and let the arena shine.
