Play Three Cheers for Master and get a sweet promo!

Come check out Three Cheers for Master! We’re running a free demo on Saturday, June 27th at 1:30pm.

And we’ve got some sweet custom cards we got for the ‘ship. It’s a cute game where you setup cheerleading towers of minions to try to cheer up the “master.” In the process, you try to knock down your opponents towers and prevent your from getting knocked down as well. Whoever makes the best tower wins the affection of the master! Very silly game that I can’t wait to show EVERYONE.
