I’ve been in contact since October with a sggc called Orion’s Bell. They have been working on a CCG based on The Wizard of Oz for over seven years now. They have a ton of great artwork for over 300 cards and a complete set of rules. I don’t know what the heck is taking them so long.
They told me that they ran into some financing issues; I suggested Kickstarter, and a while later (in December) they said they were “working on launching the kickstarter site”. They’ve been working on that for at least four months, now; I didn’t realize it takes that long to launch a Kickstarter project. Hey, OB: consider this post your kick in the butt. Here’s why:
While you were sleeping, Ystari Games announced that they will be coming out with a two-player Oz non-collectible card game. Not much is known about it, but it sure looks cute.
The Ystari one… I don’t think I can handle that art style. The Orion’s Bell one looks like it has a bitchin art style, but ewwww CCG.
Oz from Ystari is a card game from 2 to 4 players actually.
It’s a fast game (about 10-15 minutes) and it’s a set collection typical game.
the non-CCG one is HIGHLY anticipated due to the dichotomous nature of the story versus the character cards. I am look forward to this one.
