Looking for CCG game engine

7 replies [Last post]

Hi

I am looking for a CCG game engine that could be licensed or bought outright. It can be a good system that was previously released and failed to meet sales expectations or a brand new one.

It should meet the following requirements:
Will work with action based characters
Easy for 7+ aged children to understand
bug free
expandable/scaleable
INEXPENSIVE
FUN!!!

The company I represent would provide all graphics, etc. We just need a game engine.

Any assistance would be appreciated...

Feel free to PM me with suggestions or leads.

Also please do not send me any concepts until a mutual NDA has been signed.

Thanks

Wait a minute, (s)he is talking about a collectible card game right and not some computer game engine?

I guess engine could be used to describe a ccg system. Maybe we should stop speculating and let them respond. LOL.

Card game rule set (not for computer games)

Hi

I am looking for a card game rule set. Maybe I should have used the term "rule set/game system" instead of "engine".

I am looking for a game system that can compete with the lines of Yu Gi Oh, Duel Masters, Magic etc.

I realize this is a tall order, but I figured this would be a good place to start.

(Not to stray too much off topic but...the I realize this is a board game forum, however some discussion of video games, etc. should be tolerated since they are games as well and many of the same approaches can be applied to any game."

Thanks again....

Good luck in your search to find a game! I'm not all that familiar with the CCG market, but I'll hazard a guess that it's rather saturated; I suspect a game will have to be singularly spectacular to keep pace with the established games. Hope you can find one!

Your request is certainly one of the first we've had from a publisher seeking designs; could you share with us who you represent?

I'll attempt to ignore the cheekiness of coming into a forum and attempting to dictate protocols to its members, and observe that to the extent that the subject at hand is the principles of game design, we do tolerate discussion of computer-based games; we recently had a discussion about a game called Culdcept, and one of our members runs a company that produces computer-based versions of his board games.

The problem is that the vast majority of computer game folks don't want to talk about game design, they want help with implementation; "what graphics software should I use to make a first person shooter?", e.g. That subject isn't of interest to the vast majority of our members (who are designing board games), and since other groups exist for the discussion of such topics, the interested parties should go there to take up their discussion; it's better for both sides that way. You wouldn't believe how many people come here hoping to talk about computer games, despite the absolutely unambiguous name of the site.

And for whatever it's worth, I've referred to the core mechanics of my games as an "engine" in the past; it's perhaps more common in computer parlance, but I think it can work as a board game/card game word, as well.

Good luck with your project!

I'd be interested in learning more about your needs, Marigul.

I am a relative neophyte here, but I am a hobbyist gamer and gaming enthusiast (as well as an aspiring game designer) and I have some experience playtesting for a major CCG publisher.

I may be able to help you come up with something (or develop something for you). Please feel free to contact me at the email address in my forum profile.
