This week, the historical issue #100 of Germany’s oldest magazine about Trading Card Games has been released. Unfortunately, it will also be the last issue of it.
It seems the ever changing market for TCG magazines has hit a downward swing – also thanks to the growing importance of the internet where players can find information often faster and, more importantly, cheaper. Nevertheless, it has been quite a ride for the Kartefakt. The magazine was about to be discontinued before, but found a way to make it to the 100.
The final issue features an interesting article about the history of TCG’s on top of the regular features you should all be familiar with by now. Additionally, #16 of the Kartefakt Virtual has been released. I’m not entirely sure if it’s also the final issue, but you might find out rather quick once you take a look at it. You can find it together with some more information about the final issue of the Kartefakt on the homepage: Kartefakt.de.
I would like to thank the amazing team of the Kartefakt for the long lasting work relationship we had. I enjoyed providing the Yu-Gi-Oh! and World of Warcraft content for the magazine and wish the whole team all the best for the future!
I just checked when I announced the release of the last Kartefakt issue… Well, seems like I missed out on 2 issues, but that shouldn’t be a big deal. It’s not like I’m not writing for the magazine anymore, I just forgot about it, so sorry for that.
Anyways, the Kartefakt 99 is out now and as always, I provided some articles for it! Despite a brief overview of the new World of Warcraft TCG set Scourgewar, I also provided a full description of the successful French Twilight Yu-Gi-Oh! deck as well as an article about the new Yu-Gi-Oh! release Hidden Arsenal.
Also available is issue #15 of the Kartefakt Virtual. This online magazine is completely free, so if you find the time, you should definitely check it out! You can find some more information on the Kartefakt homepage: Kartefakt.de.
Wow, I’m way behind. Kartefakt 96 has been released quite a while ago and soon, Kartefakt 97 should be available (hopefully, I’ll be able to announce it a little earlier then). Same goes for Kartefakt Virtual 13 and Kartefakt Virtual 14. So well, as always, there are some articles in the magazines written by yours truly and they’ll make up for rather good reasons to pick them up.
Kartefakt 95 is available in stores now! World of Warcraft TCG fans will not only find an article that covers the deck surrounding the fire mage Nicholas Merrick, there’s also a deck feature of Moreno Borri’s warrior deck that earned him a top 8 spot at DMF Torino.
Yu-Gi-Oh! fans will have quite an exciting read with a detailed report about the record breaking US Nationals as well as a deck feature of Chris Bowling’s Cat Synchro deck and a short breakdown of the crazy new staple that is X-Saber Airbellum.
That’s still not all! Also available is Kartefakt Virtual 12, marking the 1 year anniversary of the online only magazine. You may check it out at kartefakt.de/virtual. It comes packed with more exciting articles, like a feature of Stuart Wright’s Mazar deck as well as an in-depth analysis of the Booster Draft in the current environment.
This week, Kartefakt 94 will make its way to the stores. As always, the magazine is full of interesting articles about the fascinating world of Trading Card Games.
Despite a tournament report about the Darkmoon Faire Turin together with a deck feature, you can also learn what the buzz about the new Desecrator deck is all about. However, there’s more to the magazine than articles about the World of Warcraft TCG. So grab a copy and learn about resource advantage in Yu-Gi-Oh!, the Regionals for the Huntik TCG or the new rules for Magic.
