Flash Duel is Released! (in the US)

Both the regular and deluxe versions of Flash Duel are now available. US-only for now, more countries later.

The regular version is cards-only (plus the rulesheet of course). The "board" is actually 5 cards that you lay end-to-end. Keep track of your position with a penny or token or whatever is nearby. The regular version is small and portable, and is only $16.

The deluxe version has a wooden box with awesome laser engraving on the sides. The board is a wooden two-piece board with vibrantly colorful graphics. You get two wooden pawns, five wooden win tokens (also laser engraved), and the rules and cards. It's fancy and just more fun to play with if you ask me (especially because of the board), but you can be the judge. The deluxe version is $45.

You can read a bit more about the game in my previous post. If you own the game, you might help out by submitting a review (or even discussion, play report, rating, whatever) of the game on or Amazon.

Thanks for supporting the first Sirlin Games product!

I'll be getting the regular however. I find the deluxe too expensive really.
But I'm looking forward to this. I actually know next to nothing about Flash Duel but I have faith that it'll be good.

I'm planning on picking this up after payday on Friday. So can you play the whole game with just one deck?

That is correct!

I bought the deluxe edition as well, although I'm feeling like its a little pricey. I'm considering the delta a tip to Sirlin for providing entertaining reading on and off for the last few years.

Best of luck!

I can't wait for the European version!
If you make we wait for too long I will eventually have to make my own version with scissors and glue until it releases here :(
No. You don't want to see me using scissors and glue. It will be awful. Really.

(Go go! European release!)
