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 TCG: New Kadabra Cards Allowed In Future Sets

Illusionist Uri Gellar gives Nintendo and The Pokémon Company permission to use the name Kadabra on Pokémon TCG cards again.

For those not aware the illusionist sued Nintendo in 2000, and also asked that Kadabra no longer be put on Pokemon cards, stating the company created the Pokémon in his likeness including his signature spoon bending and the Japanese name being similar to his, Yungeller.

For 17 years no new Kadabra cards have been printed, the last being from the 2003 Skyridge set. Abra was last printed in 2007's Mysterios Treasures along with Alakazam but did not include the Kadabra evolution. We have seen Alakazam as Star, EX, GX, and V cards which are Basic and don't require evolution.

In an email to TheGamer, Geller wrote that "Due to the tremendous volume of emails I am still getting begging me to allow Nintendo to bring back Kadabra/Yungeller, I sent [...] a letter to the chairman of Nintendo giving them permission to relaunch the Uri Geller Kadabra/Yungeller worldwide."

We will have to wait and see if this change of heart will result in The Pokémon Company printing new cards.
