Nordguard: The Card Game [Apr. 22nd, 2012|05:28 pm]

Over the last couple of weeks, we've been working on original artwork for the upcoming Nordguard Card Game!

Click Here For More Information, Sample Cards & the FAQ!

The game itself has been developed by Tempe O'Kun and Nic Wald, and Jeremia Heupel of ThinkTank Games directed play-testing. They've been tweaking and play-testing for over a year now. It's slated to be released this summer, and will be available from Sofawolf Press.

The card game will feature 50+ pieces of new original artwork we've done, plus some artwork from Across Thin Ice, and Nordguard concept art. In total, each deck has 130 cards, plus comes with custom Nordguard dice. The game will come in two editions, standard ($12) and collectors ($25).

There will also be additional artwork from the talented Chromamancer!

You can find more information about the game itself, and see sample cards, on cardgame.nordguard.com! The site will continue to be updated as we get closer to the summer and the game's release.

A lot of the painting for the cards was done on LiveStream. I edited/sped-up a couple saved sessions for anyone interested in the process! You can find more on my LiveStream Channel, but here's a link to one.

I'll be LiveStreaming pretty regularly over the next couple of weeks as I work on the preview for the second Nordguard book (the title of which will be announced soon!)

You can follow @screwbald or @nordguard on Twitter to be updated whenever I start LiveStreaming!

Have you thought about having demos, or even a booth at Gen Con in August? (30,000+ gamers, artists, collectors, and more over 4 days!)

If you can't find someone willing to share a booth in the main area (Bruton, Stein, VanCamp usually have tables at Gen Con, though usually in Artist's Alley), they do have something called Entrepreneur's Avenue that first-time exhibitors can get for lower cost (not exactly prime real estate, and by "less expensive", it's still a chunk of change.) The EA spaces are limited (and likely sold out), but it may be an option nonetheless.

There's also the chance, if nothing else, of registering to run demos and/or competitions too if you, or someone else is so interested.

If any of this sounds like something you'd like to do, feel free to contact me here, or on FA, or Email (Torakhan on Gmail as well) and I can put you in contact with the Gen Con folks. It looks like I will be Senior Volunteer for On-Site Registration and such this year, so I won't be at Exhibitor Headquarters, but I may still be able to sling some Emails around. :)
