It’s KeyForge time

Then it promptly disconnects again minutes later.

The stream is back as of 7:27 PM central!

And then it went down for the third time.

And it’s back up at 8:30 PM central. The technical issue is “hopefully addressed.”

A new tide card is included in Dark Tidings decks as a 38th card.

And Evil Twin deck has a special card back and a name based on an already existing deck. “Televig the Renegade” versus “Televig the Renegade’s Evil Twin.”
