posted in: Podcasts | 0

The round table is back. 

John Coviello (Little Shop of Magic), Wayne Mittlesteadt (Dueling Grounds), and Gary Sproul (The Haunted Game Cafe) join me to discuss two things: Wotc's new digital offering MTG Arena and the impact of counterfeit games on the industry. 

In the first half of the show, we talk about the MTG Arena announcement and what we know about the software. We're in the Alpha phase right now but the Beta will be opened to the public soon enough, if you want to get your hands on MTG Arena and dive in first hand be sure to sign up at playmtgarena.com.

In the second half of the show, we talk about the new wave of counterfeit games that are coming out of certain areas of the world and what it means for retailers, consumers, publishers, and distributors. It's a tricky problem and we explore some possibilities around preventing counterfeits from ruining the industry we love.
