FFTCG Articles, Podcast and Competitive Resource

Welcome to EXP+!

EXP+ was started to provide content aimed at helping players improve their game. Our content is focused on Final Fantasy TCG, but also looks at mechanics of gaming as a whole to foster the type of thinking that will make you successful. We believe that in order to help this game grow and succeed we need to invest in you, the players. Please enjoy our site, and let us know if there is a topic you would like us to cover!

5/30/18 May the FFTCG Be With You

May has been a crazy month so far for the FFTCG! With Toronto hosting the second ever Crystal Cup event, RVA Returners hosting an awesome live-stream cookout tournament, and our own Zodiac Trials - Aries tournament, it feels like the East Coast is starting to get a lot more events lined up. June is only going to be crazier, with Kansas and California hosting Crystal Cups, and with our friends down at Gamer's Heaven hosting the first FFTCG cash tournament for the area.

Personally, I have been working on a new series of articles meant to coincide with the release of Opus VI to help players step up their testing and deck building in the upcoming new meta. I've also been working on a new series of videos where we analyze and discuss recent matches from major and local tournaments. We are going to have a busy summer of FFTCG, and we hope you keep coming back to check out all of our upcoming FFTCG content!


5/11/18 Aries Cup - A Prelude

Happy Friday everyone! We are so excited to attend the first Zodiac Trial event, the Aries Cup, at All In One Collectibles tomorrow! We will absolutely be posting Top 8, tournament reports, and retrospectives on how everything went after the event as well as pictures and details on the next Zodiac Trial! We've put a lot of work into organizing a regular circuit of events for our area and we want to make sure that the players have a good time. A live stream of the event will be available. If you are interested in Judging or commentating for this circuit please reach out to us!

See you there!


4/26/18 A Zodiac Brave Story

We are happy to announce that together with PlayFFTCG.com, SideQuest and All in One Collectibles we are finally starting our own local circuit of tournaments called the Zodiac Trials! These will be regular events held in "seasons" of twelve events; one for each of the signs of the zodiac. Players will have a chance to compete for unique themed playmats, big prizes, and a chance to have their name inscribed on the Zodiac Plaque to permanently leave their mark on the circuit. Click here for more details, or head over to our Events tab to learn more!

It has taken a lot of time and energy to set up these events, so we apologize for there being a lull between posts! Rest assured we have content coming for you this week, including John's tournament report from his Top 16 placement at the Boston Crystal Cup and an announcement about a new partner site! Thanks for all of your support!


4/20/18 Big Things Coming!

We are back from the Boston Crystal cup and it has inspired us to start increasing the presence of the North-East and the East Coast in general in the FFTCG! We have a big project that we will hopefully be announcing next week so stay tuned!

As far as Boston goes, John did make Day 2 and place Top 16 at the event with his pet Garnet deck (plus a splash of changes) called Save the Queen! We have been waiting to make a report until Square Enix makes their official report on the event including deck lists. We will be sure to type a proper tournament report in full for anyone curious about the event! It was an amazing time! Furthermore we would like to congratulate our friend Alex Tessmer who also made Top 16 playing a strong water/wind list we had been working on together. It was a pretty good showing but of course there is always room to improve and level up our game! As always thank you for your support, and shout-out to anyone that we met at the Crystal Cup or who are checking us out for the first time because they got a card at PAX! Welcome!


4/2/18 Boston on the Horizon!

First of all we'd like to thank everyone for the feedback we've been getting on our articles! Thank you so much for taking the time to read them. We are hard at work testing and preparing for the upcoming first official Crystal Cup tournament in Boston this weekend, and promise we will have plenty of content coming for you following the event! Tournament prep is hard work, but we've also had to adjust to the new Opus 5 meta fairly quickly. To help you adjust as well, we've written an article on it! Click here to read!

Our podcast and two new articles will be coming your way in early April. Thanks for your support and stay tuned!


3/16/18 Opening Day!

Welcome! Today marks the official launch of the EXP+ website! Right now we have a few articles to read and the first episode of our podcast will be coming soon. We appreciate any and all feedback from you, the players, as we want to run a site that provides constructive, quality information to help you improve your play. If there is a topic you would like to read an article about or would like to hear us cover on our podcast, please let us know! Thanks for checking us out, and we hope that we help you level up your game!


2/22/18 So It Begins...

We are just starting out and appreciate your patience with our limited selection of content as we create more for you to enjoy! Although our soft launch is today, we will be officially launching in mid March. Dan and I have a vision of providing a new type of content for players of the FFTCG that focuses on the mechanics you need to win more games. Other games have great resources like Next Level Magic that talk about the theory and thinking that will make you a better player, and we wanted to provide a similar style of content for the FFTCG. Our articles are short and sweet, but encourage you to analyze the way you play FFTCG in order to improve your game. We hope you enjoy what we have to offer, and let us know if you have any comments or suggestions!
