[Log] Ninja All-Stars - Part 1, Overview

This log is for everything related to Ninja All-Stars, a cute competitive team combat game. Up to 4 players can play against each other pitting a small team of ninjas, onis, and/or ronins against one another. The rule book puts emphasis on the game for league

In my quest to collect everything for Ninja All-Stars, I ended up getting a lot of extra copies. I plan to use those extra copies as a future painted gift and also to experiment with different color schemes.

Painting the miniatures for this game will likely not start anytime soon. This first entry, though, is a compiled list of the components I currently have, what I am still looking to get, and what I have been working on.

My Hobby and Blog in October 2017

October 2017 Reaper 25th Anniversary
October has been an exciting month for me.  Two of the most anticipated games I want, Warhammer Underworlds and Aristeia!, are either available now or available for pre-order, respectively. In a section below, I briefly compared and contrast these two games, not only against each other but also to other games that I have perused. Finally, I just discovered that the site I stored my images, Photobucket, will be eliminating 3rd party hosting to majority of their plans. This includes the plan that I currently have with Photobucket. The only plan that allows third party hosting will cost ~$400 annually. Sadly after 10+ years of using Photobucket, it is time to find a new image storage solution.

Last updated on November 9, 2017 (This entry will be updated periodically). This blog entry acts as a card index for Warhammer Underworlds. There are 437 unique cards in the Shadespire Card Set. Based on the core set and unboxing videos it appears the breakdown of the cards should be:

232 Warband Specific Cards (#001 to #232) - 29 cards for each Warband. There should be 8 Warbands in Shadespire. Each Warband has 9 Specific Objective Cards, 10 Specific Ploy Cards, and 10 Specific Upgrade Cards.
