The Cards of Creation: A Story Telling Card Game
The Cards of Creation: a story telling card game inspired by tabletop roleplaying games. Play some cards, tell a story, and have fun!
That is the basic rules, it gets a little more complicated. The full rule set will be in a fold out format. Which will be included in every basic copy of the game.
Below is a simple example from us:
Story Master: Basically, when you are the Story Master, you must be a fair judge of everyone's story. It is your chance to sit back, grab some snacks and just listen. Do not worry we give you 5 points for your hard work every time you are the Story Master.
Storyteller: If you are not the Story Master, then you are a storyteller. All you need to do is tell the best story you can using the cards in your possession, and remember to keep at least 5 cards in your hand at all times.
Points: Traditionally every card is worth 1 point. There is a max amount of 6 points for playing cards that do not fall under the combination rule, wild rule, or suit rule.
Combination Rule: Certain cards are made to go hand in hand. If the storyteller can create their story in a manner to combine these cards, then additional points are awarded. There are set combinations, but that does not mean that they can be the only possible pairs. A storyteller can explain to the Story Master why they believe a combo can go together. The Story Master must then judge if the combination is usable, or a combination of cards can be house ruled to be a standard combination. Pointing
Combinations: Traditionally as a storyteller you receive double points for each card in a combination. The cards must touch for a combination to count.
Wild Rule: The Wild Rule is simple, if you use a wild card; you automatically double your points after you calculate how many points you have received.
EXPANSIONS SETS WILL SELL AT THE END FOR $10 AFTER THEY WILL BE $12 - So get them while they are cheap!!!!
Each Deck currently comes with 20 separate cards depicted across four different suits. We will be adding four different wild cards, and this brings the total for the card deck up to 84 cards! Also, as we progress through the Kickstarter, we will be adding more and more cards to the standard deck. They will be Kickstarter EXCLUSIVE! So you and only you, as a backer, will ever be able to receive these exclusive cards.
Currently we have 4 expansion decks to expand your stories. Each expansion is 10 new pieces of art expanded across 40 cards. The expansions decks are the Monster Deck, Item Deck, Hero Deck, and Trap Deck. There are additional card decks that are in the works. They are the Terrain Deck, Dungeon Deck, and City Deck. When the kickstarter gets further along I will reveal them We currently have 2 additional cards to add to the deck, and wild cards as well.
Art prints are will be 12" by 18" full color prints of your choice of card art or expansion card art. The survey at the end of the kickstarter will let you choose which art print you would like.
Posters will be 24" by 36" full color print of the art for the card box.
Risks and challenges
We have done everything we can to eliminate risks of our amazing Kickstarter backers. The game is designed, and some minor final testing needs to be conducted. The artwork has been completely funded in house, and is complete. All that is left to do is get all the wonderful cards made and ship them all to you wonderful backers. It is completely possible for the world to end tomorrow, or that the game could spontaneously combust on its way to me. The odds are in our favor, and we trust our manufacturers to correctly package them for us.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
