Sometimes you want a game that’s a bit more than “just a card game” but is also not as bulky to carry around or sometimes fiddly as a miniatures game. You know, something were the cards you play is just as important as how you position your unique and powerful characters and valuable resources on the field. Something like… Land of Zion, a new expandable card game that’s up on Kickstarter now.

From the campaign:

Land of Zion is a dynamic, expandable card/board game (ECG) that blends a variety of play elements, including resource management, dice rolling, card positioning, and tactical gameplay. 2 to 8 players compete on a large, grid-based game board, and matches take 45 minutes to an hour to complete. Players can choose from three exciting ways to play Land of Zion. Those formats are constructed, draft, and free play.

Each player begins the game with a group of adventurers who have made their way to the valley of Lux to train and prepare for the upcoming battle against Tenebris. Throughout the game players will use speaking stone cards drawn from a community resource deck in order to perform various abilities in battle.

The Kickstarter campaign is up and running now. They’re not quite halfway to their goal, but they’ve still got 19 days on the clock to get there.

    I had never imagined Zion looking like Laputa.

    Is an ECG the same as an LCG when they’re not done by FFG?

      Hi Odinsgrandson – Yes, an ECG (expandable card game) is pretty much the same format as a LCG. This
      game is setting the foundation for a series of titles that will expand
      upon the world and lore. The base game introduces the combat mechanics
      and pvp gameplay. The expansions will include solo and co-op storyline
      driven campaigns and scenarios with
      enemies and boss battles etc. All of the characters included in this
      game will be used in the future expansions as we continue to develop the
      series.
