7wonders XX ^C +B

Let me tell you about 7wonders. It's a drafting card game designed by Antoine "Hanabi, Takenoko and Ghost Stories" Bauza. It was released in 2011. I played this game a ton last year. I'll be playing it likely just as much this year.

The game flow is pretty simple. Each player is dealt 7 cards. They each draw a card from their hand, place it face down and pass the remaining six on. Everyone then reveals what they've taken, picks up the hand passed to them and does it again. When there's two cards left, one is taken and the other discarded into the center of the table. After this draft, each player fights the two on either side and gain victory or loss tokens. This is done with three hands of cards and then scores are added up based on what you've taken.

F.K. Digital Updated WHAT?!? - A Super Cosplay War Ultra Infinity Primer

So it turns out that on Christmas Eve 2014, F.K. Digital, creators of Chaos Code went and updated their other fighting game. Super Cosplay War Ultra. That freeware game with the autocombos they first released in 2003. What a glorious way to end a year that saw a 1.2 release for E's Laf (and a sequel announcement!), Wonderful World updates bringing it ever closer to 1.0 and French Bread releasing a commercial cash-in licensed game! Oh and some dickheads charging money for Vanguard Princess on Steam when the same version is available for free.

So with that run-on sentence out the way, let's break down my platonic lifelong partner, Super Cosplay War Ultra ~Infinity~
