Ending The Run

Who plays a dead collectible card game? And why?

Those questions kept coming to my mind after I excitedly learned how to play Android: Netrunner (ANR) and shortly thereafter found out the game was being cancelled after six years. A few months prior I had stumbled across an article describing the player-driven community that still surrounds the old Star Wars Collectible Card Game (SWCCG), some eighteen+ years after its discontinuation. Turns out both games have strong Minnesota connections.

Status: In Production.

Details: Besides continuing to learn ANR and bugging the crew of the local game store, I have filmed the official final last three days of tournaments (Magnum Opus) at Fantasy Flight Games (plus the King of Servers event). I interviewed about 40 different players and members of the NISEI group. All interviews have already been transcribed.
