Here We Go with Hero’s Destiny!

The new set is out, and we are Right Back At Ya!

New Video of Marvel Super Hero Squad Trading Card Game.

That is the view from the other side of the screen. The Amazing Mr. Puffin Rabbit captured one of our recent victories for posterity. What card did we use to finish the victory? Feast your eyes…

We Will Be Right Back!

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for giving us a week off to celebrate the big red beatdown that our Miami Heat team gave to the NBA championship trophy.  The party is finally wrapping up, and we will return with a whole universe of Squad Card goodness very soon.

To infinity, and beyond!

Miami Heat Championship Parade.

We have been with this team since the first game in 1988.  We suffered through the days of Rony Seikaly and Rory Sparrow.  We felt the bruises alonside Alonzo Mourning and Timmy Hardaway.  We got a ring with Shaq and DWade learning to fly, but nothing compares to this.

Thank you, Miami Heat.  Our city has never been happier.  Ever.

Bosh Bash On!!!

The Miami Heat Are The 2012 NBA World Champions!!!

Our sincere apologies for taking this week off from blogging about the Marvel Super Heroes Trading Card Game, but we are in extended celebration mode in Miami.  We got to meet Chris Bosh at his Christmas Party this year, and now we got the rings to go along with it.  See you next week, right now it is time to party.
