Shyftrz: The RPG card game.

This unique and furiously fun card game has three modes:

  • Solo Play
  • Co-operative Group play (as many as 20 players)
  • Player vs player mode.

Most of the fun centers around co-operative group play. You get a traditional character with full stats and skills sending them to quest and adventure at unique towns and locations with other adventurers.  Characters have the ability to gain items, weapons, spells and level up.  Shyftrz uses cards instead of rulebooks but you still get to roll handfuls of dice. What makes Shyftrz even more fun besides the cool name with no vowels is each character has the ability to SHYFT into a more powerful monster form to take on the real baddies like Yeti, Dragons and Demons.  This game plays out fast and furious with plenty of depth to keep your adventuring crowd watering at the mouth. No having to lay your cards end to to end or try and butt them up together to form a quest line. No over abundant rules and game options weighing players down causing 10-15 minute wait times before your turn comes up again. Featuring an exciting blending of art styles by traditional fantasy artist like William McAusland, Chris Eisert and contemporary modern Anime artist Yishan Li, along with an eye popping box art cover by Cyberforce's Will Torres this game is a MUST have on your gamers Christmas list.
