Tick tock, It’s time for GenCon again!

I know we’ve been quiet, and for that I’m sorry. It’s been a busy Spring/Summer for a variety of reasons, but rest assured that Cardspiracy is actively making progress towards release.

We are back in the First Exposure Playtest Hall again this year and we have confirmation of our official schedule:

Friday Aug 3rd at 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM
Friday Aug 3rd at 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM
Saturday Aug 4th at 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM
Saturday Aug 4th at 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM

Outside of these hours we’ll also be doing some Open Gaming in the JW Mariott, Grand Ballrooms 5 and 6 for unscheduled playtests.

So what’s going on with Cardspiracy?

Over the last year we’ve made some pretty sweeping changes, including adding social voting to the game as a means of rewarding players for their creative choices.

Some of our Action cards were causing confusion with players and had to be replaced, both in terms of wording and what they actually accomplished. It’s never easy to remove content from a game, but we play test for a reason so we needed to follow the feedback.

We’ve been making gradual changes to the art, for visual accessibility (ie. colour blindness), art direction and consistency. We still have a few art assets to complete, but the graphic design of the game is nearly finished.

We’re looking forward to the feedback we’ll be getting at GenCon, so feel free to stop by and chat!

Keep an eye out for our Tin Foil Hats!
