D&D as a deck building game...

Postby satbunny » 11:54am on 28 Apr 17

Wizards of the Coast just announced that they’re partnering with Catalyst to bring you new D&D themed deckbuilding game…


That’s right folks. Here’s one deck of many things that won’t ruin your campaign. Thanks to the folks at Wizards of the Coast and Catalyst Labs, we’ll soon be seeing a new game that draws on all the lore of a good D&D game but mixes it up card style. From what I can tell it sounds like you’ll be rampaging across the Forgotten Realms, encountering a Volo’s Guide of famous places and monsters, starting with the Sword Coast but then moving on in future expansions.

What’s curious to me is that it sounds like this is meant to replicate the whole idea of playing an RPG–only instead of an RPG you’re playing a deckbuilding game. Maybe if you really enjoy the tactical aspect of the game, this is for you? I’m not sure–but the little press blurb I found details plans for short adventures and long campaigns alike. So the line between this and actual D&D is going to be blurry at best. Check it out for yourself:

Love the idea it's a deck of cards that won't spoil your campaign....
