One of Raine's biggest hobbies has always been gaming. It all started with an Atari and spread out to Yu-Gi-Oh!, Magic: the Gathering, and Dungeons & Dragons. As an artist, Raine takes pride in painting models for games as well as making his own terrain. He's also been a writer for many years, working both in the journalism industry and writing pieces of fiction. He decided to create Initiative : Tabletop as a platform to talk about all things gaming that he simply thought were cool, and reviewing games became a part of it!

Ultra Pro Teams Up with Paizo for Pathfinder Adventure Card Game Accessories

Pathfinder Adventure Card Game Character Mat Skull and Shackles

Last summer during Gen Con Paizo revealed the player mats for the Pathfinder adventure Card Game. The game itself ended up being a huge success, and the community has been behind it ever since. The player mats were another great hit with gamers who picked up the game, and both Ultra Pro and Paizo have come together to announce that there will be a full product line coming available this year for the game.

The new Ultra Pro product line for the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game will enhance player experience, and help both organize and protect the game cards. Frank Whittaker, the Ultra Pro Director of Marketing, said about the new line, “A great cake is enhanced by great icing, and that’s what our products do. The art and the layout of our accessories are designed to help immerse players in the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game storyline. The playmats serve to minimize unruly card piles and provide rich visual cues of the playable heroes and their adventure paths, while Deck Protector sleeves and other storage products help extend the life of the game for long-lasting gameplay.  All these items come together to help players to better enjoy the rich content created by Paizo in this exciting new game.”

Here’s a look at what products will be coming down the pipeline this year:

       PACG Adventure Mat: Large area playmat measuring 24″ x 24″ with placement guides for decks used in gameplay (MSRP $25.99)

       PACG Deck Protectors: Vibrant printed card sleeves featuring PACG logo and key art, offered in 50-count packs (MSRP $4.99)

       PACG: Skull & Shackles Base Set Character Mats: Seven new character mats for the August release of Pathfinder Adventure Card Game: Skull & Shackles Base Set (MSRP 24.99)

       PACG: Skull & Shackles Character Add-On Deck Mats: Four new character mats featuring the playable characters from the expansion deck (MSRP $14.99)

       Adventure Case: A sturdy storage case capable of holding over 1,200 sleeved cards, including an entire PACG Base Set plus all expansion decks for that set plus dividers (MSRP tbd)

Of all these upcoming products, I am most excited for the Adventure Case. I’m tired of lugging this huge box around while all my cards fly everywhere inside, including the set of dice. The Adventure Case would definitely solve that issue. Card sleeves are always great, too, especially if you’re like me and want to sleeve every card for every game you own. Keep an eye out for more news on the upcoming product line in the future!
