Battledome TCG Release Day!

Posted on June 26th, 2024 @ 6:00am by Joe.

It's finally here! The Neopets Battledome TCG by Upper Deck launches today in the USA and Canada!

Check with your local Upper Deck Diamond Dealer to see if they are carrying it.

The cards will be available online at Upper Deck Store from 9am NST/PDT and are currently available (for USA shipping only) at Dave & Adam's Card World, Steel City Collectibles, (and for Canada shipping only) 401 Games, and Cardboard Memories. If you are international, Upper Deck is able to ship to multiple countries. You will need to contact them, so they can check to see if they are able to ship to your country (and what it will cost) and they will place the order manually.

Many stores will also be running launch events through the week. So far we're aware of two in the US and many in Canada. Do you know of one we don't? Please let us know!

If you've attended an event, we'd love to see photos!

Additionally, Upper Deck will be live today on twitch at 8:30AM NST/PDT (11:30 PM EDT) to celebrate the launch, and will also have sneak previews of the Official Battledome League Season One promo cards!

Update:

Watch the VOD here.

OBL Season One promo cards come in a pack of two (one codestone, and one other card), and are available now for game stores to order from their distributors. They can not sell them, they can only be given away free with purchase or for participating in in-store events. There are 22 exclusive foil cards in the set that feature a new type of foiling.  Six (three Legends, and three Codestones) feature all new artwork by Anthony Conley, and some (such as Money Tree which is otherwise Starter Deck exclusive) are only available in Foil through OBL.

Accessories are also in the works!  Playmats and Sleeves will be launching at Gen Con, and additional items (binders, deck boxes, etc.) coming after.

They are also working on expansions and the first will be available in (or about) November!

This week, Upper Deck has shared some great Deck Building Tips & Tricks for different deck archetypes to ensure you emerge from the Battledome victorious!

Traditionally, in most trading card games, there is a general array of varying types of decks that players can choose to play. Since the purpose of this article is to introduce this game specifically, I will just outline some archetypes that can be found in Defenders of Neopia.

An “archetype” in the context of trading card games simply defines what general game plan your deck is aiming to achieve. This implies that most of the cards you choose to include will actively progress that game plan (we will cover this in more detail in later sections).

Here are some archetype example you can find in the base set of Neopets Battledome TCG that might help you in focusing your deck strategy with a brief description of what it aims to achieve:

  • Fyora’s Battle Faeries – A combo deck that aims to chain multiple Battle Faerie equipment abilities to deal lots of damage and play lots of cards!
  • Aethia’s Nova Blade – A tempo deck that utilizes consistency in equipment and extra damage and healing to sustain through longer rounds.
  • Marina’s Powerful Potions – A control deck that takes advantage of Marina’s powerful ability to constantly succeed on potions, granting a wide array of options for varying decks.
  • Jhudora’s Aggressive Ghosts – An aggro deck that capitalizes on Jhudora and Ghost Neopets to maintain aggressive battles turn after turn.

Choose the proper Neopets, ensure they have the proper amount (and type) of Codestones, and provide them with the right Weapons, Food, and Legends to watch their back!

Be sure to also check out Upper Deck's Twitch channel tomorrow (June 14th) at 10:00AM NST/PDT (1:00PM EDT) where Battledome TCG game designer, Bobby Coovert, will be discussing more details!
