About this project
Terrene Odyssey is a competitive 1v1 or 2v2 battle card game set in a destabilized fantasy world discovering its ancient industrial past.
- Simple Rules. Deep Gameplay.
- Original Starting Party Composition Mechanic makes for deep strategy while reducing luck.
- Up to 4 Players in 2v2 Formats.
Experience the amazing battles in Terreria as the Commanding Officer of your party of adventurers. Each match you play is like random encounter battle in an RPG world, but this time, instead of creatures, you will be fighting other adventurers just as determined as you.
Terrene Odyssey is designed to be competitively balanced and casually accessible. It was designed from a team of life long gamers with an understanding of competitive play hidden in a simple design.
Character Cards form your party. These are the main cards in Terrene Odyssey.
Terrain Cards represent where your characters are from and affect how they will Level Up.
Items Cards are physical objects a character can be holding.
Command Cards represent orders you give your characters.
We launched our Kickstarter as Terreria Tactics. That version of the game featured 3 copies of every card in the game for a total of 324 cards in one box but unfortunately it never came to reality.
We have been renamed Terrene Odyssey and we will feature the game in re-designed and re-balanced VS. Sets. We are now asset ready and in late-beta of our game balance.
What is a VS. Set?
Each VS. Set comes with two pre-designed decks for 2 Players. Each Deck features a Hero Character that governs that decks general theme, strengths and weaknesses.
VS. Set 1: S.K. the Art Historian VS. Gregory the Hoarder
Gregory the Hoarder: Hoard Item cards to increase your Parties' strength while keeping early game pressure on your opponent. Use powerful Stun abilities to lock out your opponent's key Characters mid-game.
S.K. the Art Historian: Steal your opponent's Items to activate powerful Trigger Abilities. Unleash powerful Thunder Storms and out speed your opponent's party late game.
VS. Set 2: Jin the Ambitious VS. Zowie the Ingenuic
Zowie the Ingenuic: Recruit Interdimensional Characters from another time to use instant speed abilities to take out Hero and high LV Characters. Use your Ingenuity to ignore and negate Commands in clever ways the benefit you most. Crush High DEF values with your Beast class Characters and deliver Critical Hits to your opponent's HP.
Jin the Ambitious: Silence your opponent with Jin's Ambition and negate their abilities early game while growing your resources. Overwhelm your opponent with an Army of Machines and Energy Characters. Spend Energy to use devastating abilities.
Terrene Odyssey Big Box
Experience Terrene Odyssey as originally envisioned. The big box comes with Sk the Art Historian vs. Gregory the Hoarder' and 'Jin the Ambitious vs. Zowie the Ingenuic + a 3rd Versus set 'Skylar the Determined vs. Mr.White the Astute'. The big box also comes with the entire card pool of Terrene Odyssey. That's 108 x 3 cards for a total of 324 cards. Those cards make up the 6 Versus Decks (160 cards total) and the supplement ( 144 cards). This option is perfect for Tabletop nights and for players who want to create their own decks from scratch!
Skylar the Determined: Retaliate against your opponent's attacks and easily deal damage back to attacking Characters early game. Devastate your opponent's party by tricking them into certain behaviors and punishing them with your Command -Trap cards. Use your array of Tactician's to gain resource advantages over your opponent mid and late game.
Mr. White the Astute: Use powerful Spellcaster's to cast Command -Spell cards that grow in strength based on the casting Character's LV early game. Draw cards to power your abilities that get stronger when you have more cards in your hand. Finish your opponent off with a Rain Storm of Items and Commands all unleashed at once with Gained Abilities like 'Resourceful' (Item and Command Action costs reduced to zero).

For founder Chris Solis, making games started with playing games. That’s how San Francisco’s Competitive Gaming Community was born in 2006: A tournament series for casual and competitive gamers alike. Over 100 events later, The Competitive Gaming Community evolved into CGC Games. The new focus is on making games for people who love games and who love playing with others. With Terrene Odyssey, CGC Games aims to win the hearts of tabletop gamers everywhere.

Risks and challenges
We believe in Gameplay Fidelity and Art Fidelity. We can't complete that without your help. With your help on Kickstarter, we can make the best game we can possibly deliver and we can make it beautiful. We can make it casually accessible, yet deep while being balanced for all skill levels of play. Will you join us?
Every game is subject to potential production delays, but we believe we have allowed enough time to deliver Terrene Odyssey by our deadline no problem. We are asset ready and in late beta testing but we can't bring this to publication without you.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
