4/9/2014: Expansion of Pathfinder Adventure Card Game Accessories Planned
Last year in August, Ultra PRO entered into a license agreement with Paizo to produce a line of accessories for the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game (PACG). The key goal driving this partnership is to offer products designed specifically for PACG that will visually and functionally enhance the players' experience, while organizing and protecting the PACG cards.
"A great cake is enhanced by great icing, and that's what our products do. The art and the layout of our accessories are designed to help immerse PACG players in the storyline. The playmats serve to minimize unruly card piles and provide rich visual cues of the playable heroes and their adventure paths, while Deck Protector sleeves and other storage products help extend the life of the game for long-lasting gameplay. All these items come together to help players to better enjoy the rich content created by Paizo in this exciting new game", explains Frank Whittaker, Director of Marketing at Ultra PRO.
The first two products were introduced at Gen Con 2013 and included individual character mats representing each of the seven characters in Rise of the Runelords packaged together as a set (MSRP $24.99) and the four characters in the subsequent PACG expansions as a separate set (MSRP $14.99).
Other products in queue to launch during the second half of this year includes:
Adventure Mat: a large area playmat measuring 24" x 24" in dimension with placement guides for all different decks used during gameplay (MSRP: $25.99)
PACG Deck Protectors: vibrant, printed card sleeves featuring Pathfinder logo and key art, offered in 50-count packs (MSRP: $4.99)
Skull & Shackles Base Set Character Mats: Seven new character mats for upcoming PACG Skull & Shackles base set featuring all new art (MSRP: $24.99)
Skull & Shackles Character Add-On Deck Mats: Four new mats featuring playable characters available through Skull & Shackles expansion decks (MSRP: $14.99)
Adventure Case: a sturdy storage case capable of holding over 1,200 sleeved cards and perfectly designed to hold a PACG base game set plus all expansion decks available to that set
In addition to the products above, a promotional bonus character mat will be available exclusively through the online store at paizo.com. Details on this limited release will be announced at a later day.
