OverRealm, my two-player competitive card game has never been better. I altered a few things this week and, well, I can't see any problems with it. Even if I can't immediately tell where a problem is, I usually feel something is off. That's not the case anymore. This baby is rock solid and a lot of fun! Here's a brief overview:

OverRealm is a two-player competitive card game where you choose a hero to battle your opponent’s hero. The one left standing is the winner. Turns are semi-simultaneous and feature a double-blind action-selection mechanic, so you can never be too sure what your opponent will do next, creating constant tension. Summon minions to exert your dominance and help your hero overthrow the enemy.

OverRealm has six playable heroes, each with their own unique gameplay mechanic. Here's a little info about the roster:

Ghastis Brinnar cranks up the heat. Place ignite counters on your pyromaniac minions to unleash their fiery wrath.

Aurora Polaris sends icy chills down her opponents’ spines. Place freeze counters on enemy minions and watch them shiver and weaken.

Felix Sylkstaff breathes life into battle. Summon minions face-down as cocoons and hatch them to reveal their true potential.

Lilith Grimoire loves watching minions die…especially her own. Place blight counters on your abomination minions to make them stronger and eventually implode with terrifying results.

Wulfric Relogun is locked and loaded for combat. Hedge your bets to have one marine minion alt-fire, or win combat and have your best marines unload their militarized fury.

Vanessa Groovesong serenades her foes with vicious melodies. Choose whether to have your musician minions jam out and get stronger, or perform a solo for an unforgettable sound-wave blast.

I'm so confident that I want to mail print-and-play versions to anyone here that's interested. I'll print it out (all six heroes!), cut the cards out, and then mail them your way with the rulebook. In order to play the game, you'll need:

• card sleeves with cards already inserted in them
• around 24 tokens, split between two colors (pennies and nickels work great)
• a couple d6’s for damage
• 2d20’s for hero HP, but pen and paper also works fine

If anyone is interested, please PM me your address and I'll mail OverRealm your way. I understand that playing another designer's PNP always sounds like a chore, but it starts to sound less like one when it arrives on your doorstep, free of any hassle.

Thanks guys!

I'm down. I'll PM you, but do you have an online survey playtesters can submit so you get constructive criticism?

Google Forms is solid and it's what I use.
