A new project, Unter den Hut geschaut & Coverage

Wow, it’s Friday already. The last week certainly flashed by in a hurry. I was constantly busy and worked 10+ hour days on 4 of the 5 days this week. Plus, there’s a coverage just around the corner, so no rest for me this weekend. But let’s start from scratch.

At the beginning of the week, I kickstarted my new project TCG Source. It’s a new website where I try to collect all the important news about the Yu-Gi-Oh! and the WoW TCG – the two trading card games that are most dear to me. I already published an article there, trying to explain what the site is about. Basically, you simply need to visit it once a day and you’ll (soon) know exactly what’s going on in Yu-Gi-Oh! and WoW world. It’s as simple as that! One great example is the info page about the YCS Brighton. After you’ve read over it, you won’t have any questions and you’ll know exactly how to get there, how much it costs and where you can spend the nights.

The site’s still in Beta mode, though. I need more staff to update it regularly and there are also some more sections that are supposed to go live in the upcoming week. Until then, you may want to already become a fan on Facebook or follow its Twitter feed!

Then there’s yet another weekly column which went live just a few minutes ago on eTCG.de: The Plus Community. In it, I’m trying to draw a few connections between card prices and some weird ways in which the Yu-Gi-Oh! community is acting.

I also spent all Wednesday trying to break down Yu-Gi-Oh! into as few words as possible. So if you don’t know what the whole buzz about this exciting game is about, check out this article on GameHead.com: Beginner’s Guide: Yu-Gi-Oh! (I just realized the good people running the site were so happy with the article it made it all the way into the featured slider on the main page. Guess it paid out to invest so much time in it).

Still, tomorrow’s gonna be the busiest day of the week (that’s a Spanish proverb, by the way), as I’ll be doing coverage of the “Battle of Cards” in Hamburg. It’s a gigantic 2 day tournament and thank’s to some prizes sponsored by tcgmarket.eu, it will draw in quite a few players. You can follow all the action on eTCG.de: Coverage Battle of Cards Hamburg.

Did I mention I have to finish another article for a website that’s gonna be relaunched in a few days? Well, that concludes this blog post, hope you guys will enjoy your weekend!

Releases of the past few days

The last few weeks have been rather busy, but at the same time very successful. I didn’t really find the time to update my blog, so here goes:

  • On Thursday, the 29th of September, my first article for GameHead.com went live. In it, I’m talking about the growing process of a “typical TCG player”. You should totally take a closer look: The Way of the Gamer.
  • What if… there would be no internet? is the title of an article as part of my weekly column that went live on Friday, the 30th of September. In it, I’m trying to make all the Yu-Gi-Oh! players aware of all the good (and bad) things that the internet introduced to their lives. Playing a TCG would be rather different without it, so I guess it’s also worth a read.
  • The next article went live on DailyMetagame.com. This time, I was introducing the recent project of the Bootcamp L.E. to a broader public. We opted to not attend the National Championship and instead promoted the WoW TCG at a fair in Leipzig. This is how we did it: Bye Bye Nationals.
  • I also found the time to write another weekly column for eTCG.de, this time talking about: The Rise of the Monsters in the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG. While they didn’t really play a major role in years past, they are now the defining card type in every deck!

Naturally, that’s not all that went down in the past few weeks. I’ve also published some articles on Trading-Cards.eu and made a lot of progress with various projects for my company nexTab.de (sweet Jesus, this post looks like a link farm…).

The next few days will also be quite exciting as I’ve explored a couple of ways to move my company nexTab.de to the next level! Partly because my business partner Fabian and I have a lot of cool ideas, but also thanks to the help of my coach and friend Majo. In case you also thought of starting your own little business, be sure to talk to Majo, he can help you stay on track and turn the company into a success.

Alright, that’s it for now. I’ll try to update the blog a little more regularly in the upcoming few days and also tell you about a cool new project that might go live this week!

P.S.: The upcoming weekend, I’ll be doing coverage for the Austrian Nationals! Be sure to check it out, it’ll go live on Warcraft-TCG.de.
