A new large scale Digimon event will be kicking off this month with the Digimon Card Game Fest. This event, which will offer both online and offline venues, will offer an array of fantastic gold stamped prize cards including those that will be entering the Digimon Card Game for the first time.
Digifest will be hosted using the single game, Swiss format. These will be best of one matches lasting 25 Minutes with 5 minutes overtime. There will be a top cut playoff for this event, which will be a bo1 format. Those new to the competitive side of the Digimon Card Game can take part in a Tutorial game where new players can get their hands on three demo decks and the Digi Egg set.
An exciting aspect added to the Digimon Card Game Fest is the introduction of Mulligan and Side Decks. Mulligan will allow players who draw an unplayable hand, to place their entire hand at the bottom of their deck and draw a fresh one. The Security cards are not affected at all and the deck doesn’t need to be shuffled after. Players will be able to use a side deck of up to ten cards, built up of main deck and Digi-Egg cards. These cards allow you to swap out cards at the end of each game, which will allow you to adapt to an opponent’s deck. There is a three minute limit between games, so swapping out cards for your side deck will have to be done quickly. In fact, Judges can penalise a player if they take too much time to do their Side Deck substitutions. While having a Mulligan and Side Deck could be incredibly beneficial to players, there are some concerns about changing things up in this way.
