Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Champions, a new trading card game based on the popular Game’s Workshop tabletop game launched at GenCon last week, and now all booster packs have sold out.
Since launch, there has been “exceptionally high demand” for the game’s cards, so much so that developer PlayFusion have rushed an additional order of booster packs that are planned to land in stores during the second half of September.
“The demand for Warhammer Champions has simply been overwhelming, we never would have predicted that we would have sold almost 10,000,000 cards in just 10 days!” said Mark Gerhard, CEO of PlayFusion. “We always knew the PlayFusion team developed an outstanding collectable card game, but the tremendous response at both Games Workshop stores and local hobby stores has simply exceeded all of our wildest expectations. Supporting stores is a top priority for us.”
The good news is that along with the physical card game, Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Champions is also getting a digital game which is currently in closed beta. The app will eventually allow players to import their cards into the app to play digitally with players across the world.
Keep an eye on your local hobby store as well as Games Workshop stores for when stock comes back in, in the next couple of weeks.
