Roller Derby in card game form. Collect real skaters from around the world, build your fantasy team, and dominate the flat track!
Roller Derby Trading Card Game is a roller derby community movement. Since it's conception, the trading card game has been designed with the people of the sport in mind. Roller Derby TCG offers its gamers simplicity, strategy, collectible cards and foremost the gamer will learn how to play real flat track Roller Derby. The game involves two Coaches who pit their teams against each other in races called Jams. The jams consists of rounds in which both Coaches try to score the most points while keeping the other Coach's Jammer (Scorer) at bay.
Each Starter Set comes with enough material for 2 Players to have a wonderful gaming experience. A single player can however take all of the materials and customize and maximize his Action Deck out to play on a much more competitive level.
RDTCG employs a skater Special Maneuver system with true to life statistics to emulate the individual skater's real world abilities. Coaches will also devise Schemes with their Action Decks, creating special effects during Boutplay and our personal favorite, sending an opposing skater to the Penalty Box with a Referee action card. The game itself is broken into different levels of Boutplay and has different rules based on your free time, so even a busy mom can get in a Bout or two!
RDTCG provides the collector the highest end printed trading card that can be signed by the real skater themselves! This feature legitimizes the sport aspect by catapulting Derby into the modern sport generation with custom collectable playing cards. As the product is expanded on, more skaters will have the opportunity to Be Their Own Hero and become a Skater Card themselves!
On the other side of the collector portion of the Skater card, you have the game card. This features a unique photo and statistics in which you can play RDTCG. Create your own fantasy team with your favorite skaters or recreate past bouts or even have fantasy predictions by pitting two RDTCG real teams against each other before their real Bout. The possibilities are nearly endless as we also have rules for forming your own league with it's own unique logo!
Build your team's strategy with Action cards! It's all about customization in RDTCG and Action cards are where it's at. Boost your skaters with Tactic and Strategy cards, penalize them and send them to the penalty box with Referee cards and even customize and upgrade them with unique Gear cards!
Another unique portion of the game is the use of real world sponsors and businesses in game. Let's say you have a new skate boot you would like to market to the derby world, what better way than putting it in RDTCG? Players can slowly learn about what is available in the real world of Roller Derby simply by collecting cards. We offer a host of other advertising opportunities from card creation for your product to website sponsor opportunities. Creating a complete Roller Derby experience is RDTCG's goal.

A small cutout of cardboard tokens
No, you are not charged. The project simply sits until another option becomes available.
Yes, from day 1 we have considered this. Any team or skater who submits photography must provide documentation stating that RDTCG has full rights to use the image commercially to further the product. We do give photographer credits on our website (soon to come) but not on the card itself. There simply isn't enough room to suit it.
The next expansion will feature the ability to use real Coaches and Referees in the game. However, we cannot reveal much at this time.
Absolutely! If you know of any please have them email us at email@example.com!
We have ambitions to include other languages, but at this time it will only be available in English.
The simple answer is no. We cannot afford to pay every photography for their photos, considering it is the teams job to obtain a photographer to take photos for the game. We do give credits on the website along with the card they took a picture of. We are going to post photographer credits on the Collector Side of the card, however.
Great question from our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/rdtcg). RDTCG Starter Set will come with 40 Skater Cards, TWO 40 card Action Decks, a static 60 Card Teamwork Deck (Always the same) and 6 dice. You can play with two people without any issues. You can play without Action Decks and 4 Coaches can have their own teams. There aren't enough Action Cards in 1 Starter Set for 4 Coaches to play real Bouts, UNLESS you just share the Action Deckst. You -can- play the game without Action Cards, which we encourage in your first 2 runs through the game anyways.
Absolutely! If our Kickstarter is successful we will automatically begin work on the Season 1 Booster Set. All Boosters are set as Bout Themes and will contain a collection of over 100 new cards not including 80 additional skater cards.The next expansion will create a few need angles to Boutplay including, Assistant Coaches, Head Referees, Cheat Cards, Stadium Cards, Training and much more! The first expansion will also introduce our online League system where you can record bouts and talk to other Coaches around the world about strategy!
