JoyRide Entertainment announces 2006 convention schedule
Charlotte, NC -- JoyRide Entertainment, makers of the Fullmetal Alchemist
TCG, which InQuest Gamer called the best anime game of 2005, today announced its convention schedule for 2006. The schedule includes some of the largest gaming and anime shows in North America, and, just like at last year's conventions, JoyRide will make sure that fans of the game have plenty to look forward to!
As was the case at last year's Edward Elric, The Fullmetal Alchemist
, JoyRide will have an exclusive card to give out to anyone who stops by the booth. This year's promo is Alphonse Elric, Impenetrable Armor, which will sport different card images for each of the six shows JoyRide will be exhibiting at: GAMA Trade Show, Origins Game Fair, Anime Expo, San Diego Comic-Con, Wizard World Chicago, and Gen Con Indy. And, if you haven't had a chance to pick up staff cards from the JoyRide employees, now's your chance!
There's more than just free cards to be hand, though. As usual, you can learn to play Fullmetal Alchemist
TCG at the JoyRide booth, and once you've done that, participate in any of the scores of tournaments JoyRide will be running, from sealed-deck to constructed events to special events and high-intensity Regional tournaments. Origins, Anime Expo, San Diego Comic-Con and Wizard World Chicago will all play host to Regional events, with the winners getting the chance to go to the World Championships at Gen Con Indy!
JoyRide will have more information regarding its convention plans after the release of Artificial Human, including not one, but two different sets of promo cards that will be available at this year's conventions! It's going to be a great year, and JoyRide Entertainment and Fullmetal Alchemist
TCG will be at the forefront!
