Leagues Announced for Fullmetal Alchemist TCG

Charlotte, NC - December 8, 2005 -- Hot on the heels of its announcement regarding new expansion sets for 2006, JoyRide Entertainment today announced League plans for the Fullmetal Alchemist TCG. A frequently requested feature, the Fullmetal Alchemist TCG League is a great way for players to enjoy FMA TCG in a more casual setting than sanctioned tournaments, with rules that can be altered to fit a specific play group. Also, while tournaments must be held at a public place, open to all comers, you can invite as many or as few people to participate in your League, even holding it in your own home!

There are two ways to run an FMA TCG League: First, you can just download the materials needed to run the League (scorecard, rules overview, and super-deformed rules) from http://www.fma-tcg.com/content/view/144/52/ and start running the League today! This option is free of cost, but doesn't include any prize support.

The other way to run a League is to get an Official FMA TCG League Kit from JoyRide Entertainment. This kit includes the materials needed to run the League, including a poster to keep track of the weekly winners and prize support for 16 players. Official FMA TCG League Kits are available for free to JoyRide Entertainment Premier Retailers. Once every three months, a Premier Retailer will be sent a League Kit free of charge. For other retailers, volunteers, and tournament organizers, Official FMA TCG League Kits are available for sale at $20 each. If Premier Retailers want to run multiple leagues more frequently, additional League Kits can be purchased.

League Kits will be mailed to all Premier Retailers starting Dec. 12 and be available for purchase starting Jan. 4. All stores listed in the retailer directory on JoyRide Entertainment's Fullmetal Alchemist TCG web site (www.fma-tcg.com/stores) are currently considered to be Premier Retailers. If your store sells FMA TCG and is not listed here, send that store's info (name, mailing address, phone number, and e-mail or web site) to [email protected] by Dec. 11.

If you have any other questions about Leagues, please e-mail [email protected]
