Today we bring you news from both sides of the ocean. Specifically, the Atlantic one. Firstly, as seen in the Vlogbrother’s videos – we have released a new booster pack featuring cards such as Hanklerfish and Giraffe Love. We just want to thank all of you who emailed in or approached us to suggest this pack. It was definitely a popular idea amongst Sopio fans.
At the same time, we also quietly released the Chess booster, bringing the strategy of chess into the chaos of Sopio was a challenge, but we think we managed it and we are quite proud of all the cards.
The Vlogbrother and Chess packs are available now in the store, you can buy them alone or with Deck 1 and Deck 3 respectively as alternative bundles. You can also get them as part of our ‘Gift Set’ which is all the Decks/Boosters and a wristband – which we are selling at just £40 for the next week!
Another popular new release are Deck Boxes. It’s always great to release something people have asked us constantly for! They hold 81 cards; 1 deck and 1 booster and can be used for all the Decks J
Now, back to London. Sopio is proud to announce that they are one of the sponsors of this years Summer in the City – and will take control of the Games Room on the Friday & Saturday. There will be tables set up and cards available for you to just sit down and play Decks 1-4 against all of your friends. Alex sadly won’t be there but Danny will, and he will have some little winner certificates if you want to have a little tournament between you and your friends.
So if you have never had a chance to play any of the Sopio decks, or you want to make new friends at SitC – this is a perfect way to do both! Decks, Boosters, Wristbands and the new Deck Boxes will all be for sale at the merch stands too. If you have any questions just head over to the Sopio Cards Facebook page or email us 🙂
Just a small post telling you that we hope to have some exciting news soon, but nothing we can confirm yet.
In the meantime feel free to go join the Facebook Sopio Cards page and chat to us there 🙂
First, the bad news. Neither Alex nor I will be attending VidCon this year due to reasons beyond our control. As a result Sopio also won’t be there. It was great fun meeting you all last year and we will hopefully be there next year.
However, to make up for this we have good news! Last year we launched Deck 2 at VidCon and recently we did a poll on our Facebook page where you voted Deck 2 your favourite. As a result there is 10% off all Deck 2 items – the Deck, the Bundle and the Silly Cone Valley shirt – until the end of the month!
We also launched this cool full-colour Elements Poster and are doing it at a pre-order price of £6.
So, we can’t make it to America, but we make a pretty good apology sale!
For those of you who have missed out on the Deck 4 release tournament, you can still get Deck 4 at our non exclusive online store!

And hey, while you are being really nice and ordering yourself some cards, why not get a t-shirt? The highly sought after “What Element Are You?” Shirt is also available 😀
Deck 4 is on the verge of release and we will launch it the only way we know how – with a pre-release tournament! We have really enjoyed making this deck, and are happy to give you the chance to come along, play the deck, have some fun and purchase it before it goes up for sale on this site.
The tournament is taking place on May 5th and will be held at:
St Nicholas Church Centre
London, E14 0PT
Nearest train station: Canning Town
Nearest bus route: 309, stops right outside the venue
The tournament will run from 11AM to 6PM. All decks and boosters – including Deck 4 and some other new items – will be for sale at the event.
Print out your PayPal receipt as that will be your entry.
Hope to see you in a few weeks!
Danny & Alex
p.s. If you are unable to get to London this time, dont worry. We are looking into other tournaments around England/Scotland/Wales for later in the summer and for people going to Vidcon we will try to get a little thing going there too.
Sopio is a year old 😀
What a great way to start a blog post! Man, 1 whole year of Sopio in our lives. Words cannot describe how great this makes us feel. We need to celebrate, and not just with Cakeio.
Let’s start with T-Shirts. We not only have launched Silly Cone Valley and Ninjabread Men shirts, but we have PERMANENTLY reduced the price of all shirts to £12.
The discount doesn’t end there either. Until the end of February we are knocking 10% of the price of ALL bundles, which is a bargain, and also 10% off the Wristband. There is literally no better time to buy you and your friends Sopio cards.
Finally, and probably the most exciting for us, is launching this poster. Featuring the Tiny Magician fighting the Clowndragon. It is truly epic and we are so happy with it. This is our birthday present to you all.
So, thanks to everyone who has joined us on this journey over the last year and also to the people who are joining us just now. Happy Sopio Birthday – a year since this!
You are all amazing
Alex & Danny
Also – the Sopio ‘warehouse’ is moving over the next few days, so there may be a slight delay in posting, we are sorry about this.
Well, Christmas is well and truly over, hope you all enjoyed that period and the start of 2012. Alex and I have been working hard on new things Sopio wise, we’ve even teased a few things on our respective twitters and the Sopio facebook page, just for fun!
Hopefully all orders from the December period have arrived now, but if you have any issues – ranging from missing items to no items at all then email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will sort it, its the best way, honestly 🙂
Right, well, thats Sopio!
