Jagex reveals RuneScape card game
After 12 years of MMO success, Jagex have announced a RuneScape card game. Jagex have teamed up with UK card manufacturer, Winning Moves, to create a competitive card game based on the fantasy MMORPG.
"We’re always looking for new and exciting ways to expand the RuneScape brand and bring the game to new audiences"
The game in mind is an adaptation Winning Moves' flagship travel game, Top Trumps. Top Trumps is a stats-knowledge based game, where each card features a character with a list of scalar attributes; Power, Defense etc. There are variations on the game, but typically; both players announce their card and then challenge each other by selecting an attribute that they think their character will lead with. The player with the higher stat win the opponents card, and the person with all the cards at the end of the game wins. There are literally hundreds of different variations of Top Trumps, including DC Universe, Doctor Who and TMNT packs.
The Top Trumps "Monsters of RuneScape" pack is in development and expected for release in time for Christmas. Jagex are calling on the RuneScape community to vote on which monsters should make the cut.
