Hi folks!

I just wanted to post in here to talk a little bit about the amazing experience I've had since my friend asked me a few months ago if I was interested in playing Cipher with him. I own a hobby/cardstore called Akiba Underground (link here for those curious: http://akibaunderground.com/) and I decided after we started playing to go really hard on stocking Fire Emblem boosters and trying to start a scene at the store and hopefully be able to do organized play down the line. A little less than three months in we now have over half of the sets in stock in our case, a small but growing collection of singles, and we just had a legit release day for set 16 where a TON of cipher boxes came in my door and then went right back out. The response we've gotten is pretty amazing, and even just getting like 6-8 people together at once to play is so much more than I expected, considering the substantial barriers to play (we are using half-card printed translations, some which we created and others we found on here). I just wanted to share with the forum because it's been so surprising how many people have been interested, and thought it would be cool to show a few pics as well (it's still neat for me to look in our case and see cipher boosters next to magic ones).

I just acquired a bunch of the sealed promo card packs, to give out as prizes for our next organized event in a few weeks, and I'm hoping we get a good turnout.  :  ) (The picture of the card case is actually a little old, we now have even more sets in stock and a little display with cipher singles too!)

That's super amazing! Thanks so much for sharing. :) If I ever find myself in your neck of the woods, I'll make sure to stop by.

It is genuinely amazing that your store sells Cipher packs. I've thought about touring local card shops and trying to drum up interest. 

This just gave me more motivation to do it!
