Pathfinder Adventure Card Game releasing this fall

Tuesday, February 26th, 2013

Paizo Publishing has enlisted the help of Mike Selinker and Lone Shark Games to create the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game. Based on the roleplaying game’s first adventure path, Rise of the Runelords, it will be a cooperative card game for 1-6 players. As the card game will attempt to capture the Pathfinder experience, Paizo says “As you explore and overcome challenges, you’ll improve and customize your character deck by acquiring new items, allies, weapons, and more.” The new card game will release at Gen Con 2013 at $59.99 for the Rise of the Runelords Base Set – nearly 500 cards. The base set will be followed bi-monthly by 110-card Adventure Decks at $19.99 apiece. This product line strategy seems similar to Fantasy Flight’s “Living Card Games” which continue to infuse their card games with new releases/expansions while shedding the frustrations of a collectible card game. The full press release is after the click.

Today OgreCave has a new interview with James Wallis for you, formerly of Hogshead Publishing. You know him and his games, like Once Upon a Time and The Extraordinary Adventures of Baron Munchausen, and you’ve heard about the Diana Jones Awards he started. Wait, you say – didn’t he leave the game publishing business? Well, yes, but he’s back to Kickstart Alas Vegas, a new roleplaying game he’s designed. Just read the interview and all will become clear. Wait, you say – isn’t it Valentine’s Day? Yes. Don’t be weird about it.
