Creature Appreciation Week: October 24-30, 2005
"Creatures are widely misunderstood and underappreciated in today’s world, viewed by many to be scary, menacing bullies ransacking campsites and hiding under kids’ beds. However, most creatures are simply trying to lead a normal life like all of us. This is why Duel Masters TCG felt it was necessary to acknowledge the good that creatures do, and support their existence by establishing Creature Appreciation Week... This marks the first-ever Creature Appreciation Week celebration, where
creatures will finally receive recognition for thousands of years of hard work helping kids expand and develop their imagination, explore the world fantasy and provide endless entertainment."
Which is both kinda neat AND a crafty marketing gimmic fro Duelmasters , the trading card game.
Behold the Horta!
