RPGHub Reviews: Darkmoon Faire

It’s review time again folks and this time we will take a look at World of Wacraft: TCG expansion Darkmoon Faire

I recently swung by our local card store and noticed the Darkmoon Faire Collectors Set just sitting there on the shelf. At first I was not sure what it was having not much experience with the trading card game. I never really explored much of what was out there. Well I did some research that night and then decided to go grab this.

The Darkmoon Faire Collectors set includes 5 cards specific only to this set. You can’t get these anywhere else and they are quite powerful cards. Actually that’s a bit of an understatement. For instance, one of the Allies, Silas Darkmoon, can attack with the score of all you’re Allies’ attack values combined and his health is determined as such too. So this can be very scary, however most of these cards have very high resources so you will want to be wary in using them. They are very powerful if you can get them out but you need to work hard to do it.

Also on the inside of this box are two Dark Portal booster packs which, of course, are random. I was lucky and managed to get a few rares in there.

Liked

Price: The price was $14.99 CDN which is pretty good for an intro pack that contains five exclusive cards, two boosters and a special card, which if you buy another Darkmoon Faire Collectors Set would have allowed you to enter the beginners Darkmoon Faire Tournament circa pre September 2009.

Art: The art is fantastic as always and captures the feel for the setting. The art for the Darkmoon Faire unique cards capture the flavor of the humor and freakishness of the Faire.

Disliked

Only Five Unique Cards: I would have preferred if there were a few more unique cards as five cards seem a tad on the cheap side. While they are powerful cards mind you, they could have easily added some lower resource cost cards which in turn could have just caused the opponent some quirky harm.

In all, I am very pleased with the package. It represents what the Darkmoon Faire is about while providing some handy boosters introducing you to the Dark Portal line of products which is a nice lead in. I highly recommend getting it while you can.

Was recruited back in the first year of high school to play this odd game called Dungeons & Dragons by his friends who would become his family. Tending more towards darker themed games like Call of Cthulhu, Ravenloft, Gemini and other such titles; he has also ventured into other genres as his interest has developed. If there is something cool to play out there, he will play it even if it hurts his brain.
