Technically, Gencon ‘09 wasn’t my first time to The Spoils rodeo. My first encounter with this game was back at Gencon ‘06 when Tenacious Games still owned the game and rolled a big ol’ The Spoils RV into the exhibit hall for it’s launch at the convention. Demoing the game with The Spoils boys and girls netted you a free starter deck in addition to getting a booster pack or two in your convention swag bag. The demo I received impressed me so much that I immediately signed up for a couple of drafts. Fast forward a little over a year later and Tenacious Games has lost a ton of money on The Spoils due to some poor business decisions. The game then gets yoinked up by Arcane Tinmen and plans for a relaunch began. So has the game lost it’s luster in the transition and downtime, or is it every bit the fun and enjoyable CCG as it was two years ago? For the low admission price of $5 for a two player starter deck at Gencon ‘09, I was willing to find out.
