Didn't see this posted anywhere yet:

Part 2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cUWPaB5bScU

One interesting thing Cory mentioned is that they are shooting for 4 sets a year, so smaller sets every 3 months, rather then slightly larger sets every 4 months.

He slso mentioned they might release Core Sets to keep some staple cards from earlier sets around, so it seems sets going 'out of print' is confirmed.

"Embarrassment of riches in design" 1 I love that term. 2 I am stealing that and putting it in my vernacular.

how did they come up with the name Hex

Funny to here this.
For me (as being a Dutchie) the word Hex is pronounced the same as the Dutch word Heks, which means Witch :D

And is also the etymological root of our word "Hex"... >_> It's no coincidence that witches cast hexes.

Thanks for that! Cory's passion when it comes to eSports is, I believe, very good for ALL aspects of the game.

No doubt; judging by the fact that half the reason i pledged so high at the KS, was Cory and his passion about the game.

Cory is awesome :)

As I was watching the videos (Awesome as always) it made me wonder if we know about the availablity of card leveling, achievements, double back visibility at alpha launch? Or will it just be gameplay initially. Personally that will be a fun thing for me to test....does the leveling work, etc.

I always love hearing from Cory, he's a cool guy and a great speaker. I didn't like the interviewer though - he's a bit awkward.

Cory says he can talk about Hex all of the time; and that is convenient, because I would be happy to listen to Cory talk about Hex all of the time.
