Junk Wax Battle 2.0 is coming February 15th!

Mark your calendars:

Junk Wax Battle 2.0: Team Set Throwdown
Sunday, February 15, 2015 at 3:30pm
Knight Moves Board Game Cafe - Brookline, MA

That's right: we're coming back for more! Encouraged by popular demand, we're hosting another installment of Junk Wax Battle at everybody's favorite board game cafe—Knight Moves Cafe, at 1402 Beacon Street in Brookline, Mass.—on Sunday February 15th at 3:30pm.

New rules. New prizes. New sponsor.

We took the game back to the workshop for more tweaking after a successful beta test in October. And though the players had fun, the set—1988 Donruss—was unwieldy and the game play itself went on too long. Armed with a lot of great feedback, we're back with easier rules, more strategy, and much more irreverence, all in the spirit of collecting baseball cards.

And did I mention we've got a new grand prize? Players will be competing for an autographed David Ortiz baseball card! How cool is that? The prize comes courtesy of Kenmore Collectibles, our new sponsor.

What the Heck Is Junk Wax Battle?

What's more fun than opening packs, trading with friends, and winning card auctions? How about a game that combines all three?

Junk Wax Battle is the first-of-its-kind, sports card set–building game where players battle head to head to win. The first player to complete a base set is the champ. Sounds easy, right? Well, not when you figure in nine other competitors and some truly terrible collation.

Don't worry—easy-to-follow rules and a judge who's always present make sure that the competition is always on the level.

Junk Wax Battle is fun, competitive, and sure to bring back memories of some of the finest awful junk-wax baseball card sets of the late 1980s and early 1990s!
