Card Game Design Part 2
During our last meeting in class, our group had to establish the core mechanics and create an ultimate goal for our card game. One of the issues we faced was trying to remove the player elimination factor that was part of the original card game idea, which was also affecting the core mechanics. We went back and forth discussing many different ideas and finally decided to incorporate ideas from some of the other card game proposals in our group to discard the player elimination factor. We established that the goal of our game would be to collect two character cards from each of the three categories (T.V characters, movie characters and video game characters) and one ultimate card to win. We also established two components that are part of the core mechanics. First, on every turn, each player will draw one action card and one character card or one item card. Once the cards have been draw, the player will have an option to play the action card or battle with one of their character cards. Out next goal is to establish the rules of the game. Although the parameters of the game are still the same, it has changed significantly from its original version.
