Legend of the Five Rings has exploded at the store these last couple of months. A lot of you have noticed this. Perhaps some of you have even watched me, Dave, or Clint demo the game out for some new players but haven't felt up to trying out the game yourself, just to see what it's like. This article will try to help explain more of what the game is like, how it rewards players for being involved, and why you should want to be involved in this game that's been around almost as long as Magic: the Gathering.

We have just a little over a week before Avacyn Restored is officially released. What does this mean for standard? Many existing decks will be getting some new tools to work with.

Today Josh Sits down and explains the current top decks and how the cards from Avacyn Restored will likely affect them!

You may have heard that there was a major change recently to the tournament rules for magic, and you have heard right. Missed Triggers have had a major addition, the addition of "Lapsing Abilities". I will try to help explain what is and is not a lapsing ability, and why, that way you can be prepared for the ruling that you are going to get at the PTQ this weekend. As another judge said "Remember your triggers!"
