DeckMaster magazine, a monthly publication aimed at players of collectable card games, launches from Future Publishing on October 17. With younger Pokémon and Harry Potter enthusiasts, as well as the older 20-something experts in mind, the magazine will offer a mixture of news, previews and reviews of upcoming card games such as Lord of the Rings, Football Champions and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Future says the publication will include lots of tips and card strategies to help collectors and gamers ­ from beginners to advanced ­ get the most from their cards. There will also be regular updates on the $1,000,000 ProTour as it travels the world. Publisher of DeckMaster, Nick Stevens, said: "The DeckMaster team and I are excited to be launching a magazine which is serious about collectable card games. "It's a well-established market, and one that complements Future's gaming core well. DeckMaster will be the first UK magazine to offer professional, high-quality and detailed coverage." DeckMaster will have a pagination of 116 pages and a projected initial print-run of 100,000. Distribution is by Seymour; cover price is £2.95. {{CTN }}
