September, 2004 -Community section Online!
I suppose I should update since I haven't in over a week, huh?

for article I'm going to do for players just starting out in the game.
In real news: The Community section of www.digimonccg.com
is now up and running. It's basicaly a message board, but the mods work
for Bandai and answer questions about the game and such. They're still
working on the FAQ and the 'Join the Game Team' section, but the
Community is a good start : )
September, 2004 -Booster 1 Gallery
I suppose you're all wondering where I've been for the last...
over 2 weeks, huh? No, I wasn't on vacation too; I was busy with
stuff... *hides remote* ehehehe.. hehe... heh *runs from anrgy mod*
Aaanyway, moving on... I've got the Booster 1 Gallery page up now
and.... that's all. I've been working on the Starter 1 card pages, but

uploading any of the pages until I've finished all the Digimon pages in
that Starter, at least. No definate date on when that will be, but keep
checking back if you like.
And as for the cards, it seems they're available in some places,
but not all. Don't know why this is, but it could have to do with
either shipping or that they aren't making enough stock to fill
demand... Here's the latest press release from Bandai America on the
