This is probably the busiest time of my entire life. I’m getting married in two weeks, and my fiance is holding his very first card tournament.
Final Fantasy has often been an influence in my artwork, often inspiring me during times I would be otherwise completely uninspired. I think it’s wonderful that my fiance has been able to really make a living out of something we both care about so much.
The Final Fantasy TCG really hasn’t been getting the marketing it needs or deserves. Most of the time that it’s actually promoted, we hear a clear “How did I not know this existed?”
So in case that person is you- The Final Fantasy TCG is a very real, and very good trading card game, similar in function to Magic: The Gathering, Pokemon, and Yu-gi-oh. There is currently only a single distributor for the game, which is why you can’t find the cards at your local stores such as Wal-Mart or GameStop.
He is also holding his very first tournament here in Lake Mary, FL! It’s very soon (March 31st), so if you’re local and interested you should totally check it out.
Did I mention that this is the busiest month of my life? We’re getting married the weekend after the tournament. I think my little sketch at the beginning of this post will have to do for art for just a short while.
I am curious- had any of you heard of this game before I mentioned it? If you hadn’t, is it something you’re interested in? For how massive the Final Fantasy franchise is, it boggles my mind that it’s so under the radar.
