... and we are so grateful that you've chosen to spend even a millisecond of it playing CUE! You don't have to be here, you know? You've probably got family around you, or goodwill to be spreading.
Not like me, I have to be here - these stories are written in real-time. I wish we had some way to set them up in advance, but science isn't quite there yet. So while I've got your attention, have a look at some of the cool things we're releasing today!
There's a brilliant FREE Christmas Cracker pack - it's got a guaranteed LIMITED LEGENDARY card, among other goodies, and we're not expecting you to spend any Gems on it at all! In fact, if we find out that any of you have been spending Gems on it, somehow, we'll be investigating your accounts.
There's also a special Good Tidings Pack! Tidings is a word I've never really considered the etymology of before; apparently, it's just an old-timey word for "news". Reminds me that we ought to do more Good News cards next year, eh? Anyway, the pack contains three new Nativity-themed cards - Burseraceae, Jordan River and Miniature Donkey.
Man, this real-time new story thing is such a drag. I'm just now realising that I don't have a news story graphic, but that's okay, I can whip one up with what I've got to hand (spoilers - there's a Monsters of the Deep pack tomorrow).
