The group Gather Together Games is mostly known for their how-to play tutorials on YouTube. But after having given everyone else’s game a try, they’ve decided that they are gonna branch out and make their own game. It’s called Battle: Superheroes vs. Villains, and they’ll be bringing it to Kickstarter soon.
From the announcement:
Search how to play almost any traditional card game in YouTube and you will find a tutorial by Gather Together Games near the top. For the past year and a half the tutorials have racked up over 2 million views. The creator of these tutorials is now set to take an original card game to Kickstarter.
The card game, Battle: Superheroes vs. Villains, is just that, a battle between the Superheroes and the Villains.
Players try to improve their hand by drawing and discarding cards. Once the Battle Card is randomly flipped up from the middle deck, the battle begins. The player that flipped the Battle Card will lay down a numbered card. The next player must match or beat the number laid. There are action cards mixed in to keep things interesting!
If a Superhero saves the world, all the Superheroes win. If a Villain achieves world domination, all the Villains win.
Each round resets the teams and randomizes the battle card. This keeps each player engaged and provides an opportunity for different strategies to prevail each round.
