About The Project
Tails and Tactics is an exciting upcoming trading card game featuring light military strategy, good moves, and bad puns. With the support of Jan, the artist responsible for TigerKnight.com, as well as funding from all of our generous backers, this project will be ready for printing by the end of the year. Which is where you guys come in! With your support, we’ll be able to begin printing starter decks and finally release this game to the public!
The project goal is simple: we want to be able to print the first one thousand decks to be able to sell on our website. The rewards for helping us out range from our thanks on the website to free decks and rare cards to having your very own character featured in the game! So, check out all the reward options, and help us get this game started!
A Brief History
The idea for Tails and Tactics was first conceived in October of 2011 by lead producer, Reynard Loustaunau. The search then began for artists crazy enough to contribute to the art of the game. Shortly afterwards, after discovering his style would suit the game perfectly, Jan joined the Tails and Tactics team as the Lead Artist. Since then, dozens upon dozens of cards have been designed and the game has gone through extensive play-testing thanks to the hard work of our testers and friends and one very tired printer. In addition, website, TailsandTactics.com, is currently up! Tails and Tactics is scheduled to start professional printing near the end of the year.
Answers to Your Questions!
Of course we do! While we're not quite ready for public testing yet, we definitely take advice from users. If you have any ideas like cards you'd love to see made in future prints, factions you like more than our current four, name changes for the cards, etc., just let us know!
Unfortunately, any demonstration we do right now would be inaccurate as we're still hammering out the game mechanics through testing. We tried to do a game demo at AC this year but time simply did not permit. We will try to do a game demo at Rocky Mountain Fur Con 2012, we'll see if time permits. These is a card explanation page on our website if you would like to read about the various card types that we are developing.
There will definitely be booster packs in the future. The current project is for the first four starter decks (American, Japanese, German, and Russian, all set in WWII era). After release of the first four starter decks, we will begin development of additional cards for booster packs and new decks as well.
Yes, this will be a collectable/trading card game. Each card has a specific rarity that will come into play in purchases other than decks.
Series 2 should have some pretty awesome stuff. We're likely (nothing's written in stone) to add two more factions in WWII (likely the British and... some... other... axis... power). We'll also seeing about moving on to the next conflict and adding some awesome technologies from there (likely Vietnam). This will likely be the same series we start with booster packs! The plans for the future are uncertain, but we're already working on these!
Once we can print, sales will be done via out website at TailsandTactics.com. If we can ship there, we'll do so! So, most likely, yes, it'll be available just about wherever you might be.
