Wise Wizard Games announced the launch of Wacky Wizard Games, a new brand imprint focused on family-friendly, lightweight games. Three games are planned for release in 2024 as part of this new brand imprint: Star Realms Academy, Caution Signs, and Pack the Essentials. If you are interested and attending PAX Unplugged they will have prototypes of Caution Signs and Pack the Essentials. "We are super excited to be adding this new family friendly product line to our catalog. We wanted to maintain the focus of Wise Wizard Games on strategy card and dice games with geeky themes, and have created Wacky Wizard Games as an umbrella for lightweight games with a more whimsical, cute vibe," shared Debbie Moynihan, COO of Wise Wizard Games. Star Realms Academy Forge your own star realms, overloaded with cuteness! A kid friendly but still fun for grown-ups version of the popular Star Realms deckbuilding game for 2 players. A little less math, no reading necessary, but still tons of fun! 

Pokémon GO: Battle League Season 5 Cups

Niantic has announced the start of Season 5 of Pokémon GO Battle League. Starting November 9th players will be able to participate in Season 5. Season 5 will only be three weeks long and ratings will not be used for rank progression and instead will be based on winning a certain number of battles. Season 4 rewards will be available when Season 5 starts.

Season 5 Cups

Season 5 will include special theme cups instead of the normal Great League, Ultra League and Master League.

  • Little Cup: November 9th to November 16th. Only Pokémon that are able to evolve and have not evolved even once are eligible. The CP limit is 500.

  • Catch Cup: November 23rd to November 30th. Only Pokémon that have been caught since the beginning of Season 5 are eligible. The CP limit is 1,500.
    • Mythical Pokémon such as Mew, Celebi, Jirachi, and Victini are not eligible.

    • To reach rank 2, you must complete a certain number of battles
    • To reach ranks 3 through 10, you must win a certain number of battles
  • Finishing Season 5 at rank 7 or higher, will reward an Elite Charged TM rather than an Elite Fast TM.
