Developing a Card Game

Development

Rules to the Game

Demographic

The demographic is set at early teens to maybe 15-16.

Number of Players and Cards they can Hold

It is a 2-4 player game. Each player will be in control of their own regiment. The characters that are assigned to you are randomly picked from a deck of all the possible characters, players pick one at a time until they hold 3 characters cards, with this they will have to make the most out of the game they get. They also require one piece of paper and pencil each.

Goal

The goal of the game is to wipe out all other armies and be the last survivor in order to have the right to player’s spoils.

Characters

Possible Characters Include:

  1. Knight
  2. Wizard
  3. Witch
  4. Elf
  5. Squire
  6. Assassin
  7. Lancer
  8. Necromancer
  9. Shield Bearer
  10. Rogue
  11. Chimera
  12. Berserker

There is only one of each character, so no one has the same cards.Each character has their own abilities which are unique to them which takes a special card to recharge early or waiting 3 rounds. Some card are also especially better against others. All players are able to openly scrutinize opponent’s character cards.

Special Cards

There is a second deck of cards, from this you can take a one time use random special card that can be advantageous or cause problems on your end of the game. A bad card must be used at the earliest opportunity. Good cards can be kept for later use capping at 4. In order to collect these cards players must deal an accumulative 100 HP, or receive an accumulative 250 HP loss. You are able to use more than one special card at a time, meaning you are able to chain special cards together using up all 4. You can use a character card, but are restricted to one special card in that case. If you are able you may collect another special card for one you may not want. Special cards can be kept undisclosed if a player’s strategy works in that manner.

Game Play

Players take turns attacking a player of their choice. Players are penalised for the excessive use of the same character in different ways, you can find these on the cards and if possible to get what you have lost back. Varying your use of the characters you have will prevent them from becoming vulnerable until you can exploit them again.  Every characters has 20 stamina and it takes different numbers to use different attacks and defence for different characters. Stamina goes up by 2 every round.

When players are hit they have the choice to use their defence which also takes stamina from the characters.


Strategizing with Varying Conditions

The game’s environment will naturally work to change conditions which will affect different players in different ways . Every 5 rounds a 2 dice are rolled, this will change the time of day. Each dot on the die will stand for 1 hour- rolling a 7 means it’s 7 O’clock. You role the dice twice because there are 24 hours in a day.

The seasons which will change every 10 rounds in order from Summer, this will also change your characters, so use them at their most effective times.
