FIGHT KLUB FRIDAY - Cards and News!!!! Really...

Finally, there is actual news about Decipher's Fight Klub. Warren Holland, the CEO of Decipher has released information about the first two sets of Fight Klub.

First of all, the characters. There are 6 characters in each set of Fight Klub and the first 2 sets of Fight Klub are being released at the same time.


* Rambo from "First Blood," "First Blood, Part II" and "Rambo III"
* Ash Williams from "Army of Darkness"
* Chev Chelios from "Crank"
* Michael Emerson from "The Lost Boys"
* Major Scott McCoy (Chuck Norris) from "The Delta Force"
* Tank Girl from "Tank Girl"


* Hannibal Lecter from "Silence of the Lambs"
* Jason Voorhees from "Friday the 13th"
* The Jigsaw Killer from "Saw II"
* Captain Spaulding from "The Devil's Rejects"
* Mr. Blonde from "Reservoir Dogs"
* Sil from "Species"

Two cards featuring the T-1000 from "Terminator 2" are featured in the bonus pack (called a "Black Beauty") for "Two." The Terminator, Sarah Connor, and the T-1000 character cards will be in future sets.

But Fight Klub is more than just the characters. They also have Allies, Gear, Conditions and a host of other modifiers and cards that go into your deck.

In about a month, the new Fight Klub website launches. As Warren Holland said in his email, "The term web "site" is a bit of a misnomer since it's really a comprehensive web application. It's designed to rival social interaction sites on the internet but it's created just for you: Fight Klub members. The website includes forums, a powerful player locator, video theater (where players can post videos and links to movie trailers and more), individual player and gang blogs (yes... you can write your own articles and post your own content about Fight Klub), local Fight Klubs, on-site message and communication tools, card presenter, voting, store, and more."

Warren Holland also said, "We will be going to press in about a week or two, so we plan to ship Fight Klub around the end of the year or the first part of 2009. Our initial print run is relatively small by our standards, but we can reprint under player control with a new production model. The store will indicate when a product is "sold out." Players will then have an opportunity to pre-order the reprint." Any time enough players want to order a set it will be reprinted.

Future sets of Fight Klub will have characters from Platoon, Fargo, Cyborg, Gremlins, Jeepers Creepers II, Killer Klowns From Outer Space, The Thing with Two Heads, Ghoulies II, and the Adventures of Buckaroo Bonzai. Decipher has Troy, Goodfellas, The Exorcist, Natural Born Killers, Lethal Weapon, Double Impact, Blue Velvet, and Rocky licensed. The players will have the opportunity to vote on the characters they want to see in Fight Klub.

Decipher is really letting the players have a big say in this game, so don't miss the boat. Stay tuned to Savage Tales for all your Fight Klub news.

Another thing -- I had NO OPTION to do the "Spike sent me" thing. Also find myself unable to access my own account information on their website.
