Release of 3 Premium Virtual Cards at the John Anderson Memorial Tournament

Post by chriskelly »

Hi all,
Those of us who attended the John Anderson Memorial Tournament this weekend were lucky enough to gather in John’s memory and enjoy time with friends and members of John’s family to celebrate his contributions to our game and to our community. As some have seen thru a few board posts, John donated his collection to the community and many of us were fortunate enough to obtain a card we’ll always hold dear as it was from John.

Unfortunately while the supply of those cards are finite, we also wanted to do something that everyone in the community could enjoy and remember John by. Accordingly, within the booster packs that contained a card from John’s collection were 3 other cards from John’s mind or in his honor.
•Captain Khurgee (V)
[A New Hope - U1]
DARK - CHARACTER - IMPERIAL
POWER 2 ABILITY 2
Text: While aboard Thunderflare, attrition against you is -2 here. Once during your turn, if at a battleground, may peek at top card of opponent's Reserve Deck. If it is a character, may reveal it and opponent loses 1 Force (if it is a Rebel, may also place it on Used Pile).
DEPLOY 2 FORFEIT 4
[Pilot] [Warrior] [Set X]

•Puck [Rebel Pilot (V)] 7 or 1
[Premiere - C2]
Lore: Puck Naeco. Green and Red Squadron.
LIGHT - CHARACTER - REBEL
POWER 2 ABILITY 2
Text: [Pilot] 2. When choosing the destiny value of this card, must use 3 Force to choose 7. May deploy as a 'react.' Your Rebel pilots aboard snub fighters here are forfeit +1.
DEPLOY 2 FORFEIT 4
[Pilot] [Warrior] [Set X]

•Red 12 [•Red 1(V)] 2
[Premiere - U1]]
Lore: Blank
LIGHT - STARSHIP - STARFIGHTER: X-WING
POWER 3 MANEUVER 4 HYPERSPEED 5
Text: May add 1 pilot. If Puck Naeco piloting, he may be placed in Used Pile instead of Lost Pile when he is forfeited. Immune to attrition < 4.
DEPLOY 2 FORFEIT 4
[Nav Computer] [Scomp Link] [Set X]
The Captain Khurgee card was John’s player card and the Puck (71) and matching ship designs were made to capture John’s willingness to help everyone out, travel to almost any event he could, and make everyone around him better.

These cards were first tournament legal during the Consolation event at Nationals. Shortly, a PDF will be posted so everyone in the community can also download and enjoy them.

I am making this announcement now because they will also be legal for play at Worlds 2019.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the event this weekend, the creation of the memorial boosters, and the design and development of these cards. And may we all continue to honor John thru our sportsmanship and enjoyment of this game and each other in this community.

MTFBWTY,
Chris
