In many deck-building games, players have limited interaction with one-another. You might grab a card another player wanted, but not much more than that. Others have you work cooperatively on some sort of task, having you win and lose together as a group. Village of Legends, a new card game that’s up on Kickstarter, has players looking at building their deck in order to defeat one-another in combat.
From the campaign:
At the beginning of each match players will have the choice of deciding on a Hero or selecting one at random. Each Hero has a unique skill set including an intelligence value, weapon bonuses and/or other abilities and weaknesses written on their sheets. During the match the players will also have the possibility to strengthen their hero by reaching defined XP levels. When these levels are reached by killing wandering monsters the hero’s ability is automatically unlocked.
In Village of legends each player starts with a deck of 10 cards (2 staffs and 8 coins) and in turns has the possibility to buy cards from the market.
Items can be purchased from the market paying the price indicated on the bottom right of the card.
Items with their price in a golden circle can also be sold from a player’s hand in exchange for half of the market value to be used to purchase other items when necessary.
Any sold items will be removed from the game and not put into the players discarded pile.
The Kickstarter campaign is up and running now. It’s set to go for another 20 days.
