I do enjoy a good card game. You can get a lot of strategy on those little bits of card stock. I’m not a big fan of “collectible” games, though, as I usually don’t have a chance to keep up with new releases and being able to chase whatever card I might need to complete my deck. Thankfully, not every card game is collectible in nature. One such game, Codex, is up on Kickstarter now.
Codex is designed to play a lot like Real-Time Strategy games you might play on your computer (like Warcraft and Starcraft and other such “-craft” games). You have your deck, which you refine as you play (not exactly like a deck-builder, but slightly), and you play resources that you invest in, along with purchasing and playing heroes and other units to go out and fight your enemy. Cards are often kept secret until directly interacted with, so there’s a “fog of war” aspect going on as well.
The game is doing rather well. They’ve made more than 3x their funding goal, but there’s only a week to go in the campaign, if you’d like to get in on it.
