Table of Contents
Pictures are OK but not amazing.
This is definitely the most factual and complex magazine. Instead of using cool ball-break pictures, these guys take tournament coverage and marker reviews to the next level. Basically, if you want to know the standings of teams, what trades have been made, and the locations and results of tourneys, look no farther.
If you would rather prefer a more picture friendly, colorful magazine, you might want to stick with PB2X.
The paper that they use to make this is pretty good, the nice slick glossy type.
The table of contents is nice, and includes everything along with pictures next to articles. Great table of contents...
The articles vary very much, so you wont be stuck with "8 New Tips for Beginners!" for 100 straight pages...Oh by the way, they don't advertise too much. When they do, the advertisements are high quality, and clear....
It is a decent length, but not thick at all.
I see very little coverage of Scenario tournaments and markers. This is definitely geared twoards the tourney player.
If you are looking for pure facts, go for this. It may be a little pricey, but its worth it. If you are a scenario player, go with PB2X. This is made totally for the tournament and more serious players....but newbies can get a kick out of it as well. EVERYTHING IS GETTING EXPOSURE.
