Know Your Gorillas

Posted in Feature on July 30, 2012

By Monty Ashley

For today's Arcana, we have a quiz that appeared in the July 1996 issue of The Duelist. Alliances had just come out, and it was time to tell the world about the secret gorilla history of the set.

As you might notice, we've removed the answers. This is because it'll be more fun this way! Click on the playtest name to see the actual name. And then you can mouse over the actual name to see what the card does, in case you're not 100% up on your Alliances cards.
