Check out this cool postcard from Germany! Featured here is Rugon, a game created by a group of developers based in Germany, known as Glaucus Games. It’s a digital collectible card game (or CCG), which means it plays similarly to games like Magic: The Gathering, Yu-Gi-Oh and – yes, even though very people actually play the card game of this – the Pokemon trading card game. Anyone who’s familiar with Steam can find Rugon on Steam as free to play – don’t have to wait for a Steam sale to catch this one 😛 As a very brief summary of this game, the objective is to get your opponent’s life points to zero. You achieve this through the use of creature cards and spell cards. Creature cards can inflict damage on each other, and once a creature’s stamina (or HP) goes to zero from too much damage, they die (or get discarded), and the owner of that creature loses a health point. One neat mechanic to this game is that each creature has a level, from 1 to 4. The players also have levels, and you can only play creatures that match or are below your level (so you can’t play a level 3 creature if you’re a level 2). The number of life points you have determine your level – the fewer life points you have, the higher your level is (meaning, the closer you are to losing, the better the creatures you can play). There are quite a few other mechanics to the game (such as the spell cards I mentioned) – so if you’re interested in playing, you can check out the in-game tutorial and learn! I don’t play CCGs often, and I don’t think I’d be good at them – but I can certainly respect and applaud the efforts Glaucus Games made to create a game and world such as that of Rugon! And can I say that this card itself is MADDENINGLY cute?! Just a bunch of Rugon creatures havin’ a pizza picnic. Loving nerdy stuff is always rewarding. Thank you bunches for sending me this postcard!
