Russian Roulette for circumstantially immortal super wizards.
Designer, Playtest Analysis, Card Framing
Lich party is a card game for 3 to 5 players. Each player is Lich, and has placed their soul in a magic relic, also known as their phylactery. While this phylactery is intact, a Lich is immortal. But, after a few thousand years of immortality, even the strongest of Liches can get bored. To cure their boredom, they throw the deadliest of parties. A pile of relics is created, in which lie the phylacteries of all the attending Liches. The liches employ scrying magic to uncover their opponent’s phylacteries, and destructive magic to smash them into smithereens. Quickly, the party turns from fun to deadly as crazy, haphazard spells are hurled and relics are destroyed.
What I’m most proud of
- Mix of hidden info and combat card game
- PvP card game where all cards are drawn from communal decks
- Wacky spell effect combinations
