Card Game Design Part 3

In last week’s class our group started finalizing the rules and mechanics of the game. After going back and fourth discussing how we should mix our four different card types, we decided that we will stick with our idea of having four separate decks which are characters, items, action, and ultimate character cards. We also fine-tuned some of the other rules of the game. It was decided that in the beginning of the game each player is dealt 2 characters, 2 items, and 2 action cards. The player to the left of the dealer then starts the game. We were also able to come up with the long list of movies, videogames, and TV shows characters that will make our characters deck.    

We were faced by the problem of how to encourage players to draw item cards even though the goal of the game is to collect two of each character type. So, we made a major change to our game in which we decided that the character cards will have no attack/defense and will acquire these statistics from the item cards. So in order to be able to attack other characters/defend your own characters one must equip his characters with item cards.
