World Gates: TCG is based off a web-comic "World Gates". Jolly Von Rabbit, a Playboy Gambler, has a unique ability to turn people's dreams, fears, and desires into cards and often battles his opponents in this way.
Taking this concept, World Gates: TCG will expand on that ability as a mass-produced form of entertainment!
The cards from the comic as well as newly developed cards will be made with the intention of expansion. More decks/booster pack means more variety and strategies.
Here are examples of the game printed:
There are 54 cards in a deck usually themed but will vary as time passes. Some cards have already been updated since these pics which were only earlier this week.
To keep the game cheap, the rule book for the game can be found here: World Gates: TCG - Rulebook Ver. 1.0
The game begins with both players starting off with 50 Game Points (GP).
The main mechanic of the game is investing your GP into playing powerful cards. BUT your GP is also your lifeline and if it hits 0 then it's game over for you!
All cards have a Level ranging from 0 to 100. The lower the Level, the easier cards are to play but can be pretty weak in power. The Higher the card's Level, the more powerful it is!

Risks and challenges
The only real risk is your time, if the game gets funded, it'll take time to get the cards printed and shipped.
They have to be processed and then approved before shipping but after that they arrive about 2-3 weeks later (at least in my case when I had the demo set made for me to look over and do needed changes to their look).
So ultimately the sooner things can get shipped the better!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
