I've been lurking for about a month on the forums. I love board and card games and I've noticed that there really aren't that many topics on here that are about new ones. So I thought I'd change that.I recently stumbled across a KickStarter that introduces a new facet to card games. It's called Serpent's Tongue.(I know it sounds like I'm selling something... I'm not, I'm just trying to get the word out about this awesome game!)It's not a regular TCG like M:TG where you build a deck and have to keep trading to keep the game interesting. It's built around the idea that you don't needto trade to play and have fun. Everything you could possibly need to play and keep playing is included in the Starter (Core) set. To make the game even better it's a Co-Op, PvP, and a Solo game all in one. Now... everything I've typed above is some of what makes the game great but the absolute best thing (to me) about Serpent's Tongue is the fact that it's almost a RPG in its self. You have a spoken language. Yes, a spoken language that you use to cast the incantations to activate you're spells. The spells are timed so you need to know the language, not to the extent that you could carry on a conversation, but well enough that you don't stumble over them and end up miss-casting and giving your opponents the upper hand.The Codex (your book of spells) is a hardbound faux-leather sort of binder-like book where the 33 spell cards you plan to use are kept. So not only does it have a language but it keeps the game interactive by giving you the ability to choose what you want and gives options rather than just drawing from a deck.
Now I know my description does NOT do this game justice... so I'm going to go ahead and link the KickStarter page and their actual website to peruse.http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/500 ... experience http://www.BecomeMagi.comI'm not asking you to buy anything, just check it out, please. You might know someone who would enjoy it. And who knows, maybe one day we could end up playing with or against each other in a tournament?
