Well, add another to the list. We're excited to announce that Junk Wax Battle: 1988 Donruss (formerly one of Ben's pipe dreams) is going to happen. It's a game, played with cards, where the goal is to be the first to hand-collate a set of 1988 Donruss. Sounds easy, right? Well, did we mention that there are eight players and a dungeonmaster-like judge?
Game play combines ripping unopened wax packs, keeping a checklist, trading with other players, and bidding in judge-run auctions (all bidding is based on cards' book values from a 1988 Beckett Baseball Card Monthly). And actual prizes will be awarded to the top two finishers.
It's guaranteed to be weird—if not exhilarating. If you're in the Boston, Mass. area, I invite you to join us. Right now, we're looking for eight players, and we'll be playing at 7PM on Thursday, October 2, 2014, at Knight Moves Board Game Cafe in Coolidge Corner (Brookline). It's free to watch and $20 to play. All players will go home with a complete set of 1988 Donruss.
