Community Art Challenge and FREE Game!

We're doing a community art challenge for Deck of Wonders, and one lucky participant will win a copy of the game for FREE!

We've shared a ton of art from Deck of Wonders--showing everything from creatures to spells to Villains--but the one thing we haven't shown yet is the protagonist. That's because the protagonist is YOU! And we want anyone coming to Deck of Wonders to feel like they belong at the center of the story, taking on Fate and changing the world in their own unique way.

Are you an artist? (Trick question: you are!) For this community art challenge, draw yourself (or someone you love) as a protagonist in Deck of Wonders! You can take inspiration from any of the art and lore we've shared so far, and any style and/or level of polish is welcome (even quick sketches). ALL entries will be featured in a Deck of Wonders blog post and Kickstarter update, and one random participant will win a FREE copy of Deck of Wonders!

To enter, just post your art to social with hashtag #DeckofWondersArt, and tag Deck of Wonders (on Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook) in the post. We'll confirm you're entered, and it's as simple as that!

You can look through the Villain art and card art revealed so far for inspiration (though again: any style and level of polish is welcome). Deadline is 11:59pm ET on September 15th, winner is randomly drawn, keep art PG to get featured, and THANK YOU in advance to the amazing community around this game!


Here are some of the community posts so far!

Update: scroll to the bottom to see who won the free copy of Deck of Wonders!




And the winner is...

CONGRATS to undeadnerdd on winning a FREE copy of Deck of Wonders! And another HUGE thank-you to everyone who created art for this challenge. Want to add your take on a Deck of Wonders protagonist? Post it to social with the tag #DeckofWondersArt!

Board Game Equity Pyramid

As I've gotten into game design, I've found many of the tools from my "day job" in brand strategy super helpful. I recently put out a poll to the game design community asking what brand strategy topics might be useful to them, and overwhelmingly the #1 request was for help clearly communicating the equity of a game to others. I mashed up a couple of brand strategy tools through the specific lens of board game design, and this is the result! You can get a blank template for yourself right here . Fill it out (either for the board game you're designing, or for an existing game as practice) and post your results here. I geek out about this kind of marketing stuff, and would love to deconstruct it with you! What about the template is most useful? What's not useful? What's missing?

Deck of Wonders Late Pledges are LIVE!!!

The Deck of Wonders Pledge Manager is LIVE! Deck of Wonders is now live on Gamefound ! Those of you who pledged on Kickstarter should have an email in your inbox inviting you to the Gamefound pledge manager. If you missed the Kickstarter, you can get in on the game now AND help us meet additional stretch goals. As promised: late pledges will count towards those goals, and we'll be tracking our progress towards them on the Gamefound page . Speaking of stretch goals, our pledge manger launch comes with ANOTHER major announcement: Deck of Wonders is coming to Forteller, no stretch goal needed! You may remember that our most ambitious stretch goal was to professionally produce the Deck of Wonders story elements as audio segments via Forteller Games . We didn't quite reach it during the campaign, but there was still going to be a chance to unlock it through late pledges. Well, thanks to some fantastic partnership from Forteller, we're able to commit to Deck of Wonders audio RIGH

XCOM and Card Draw

I just finished XCOM: Chimera Squad last night, and I can't say enough good things about the game! The way it plays with the core XCOM formula feels almost sacrilegious at first, but the game does a great job capitalizing on all the new opportunities created by those changes. Believe it or not, XCOM is a huge design inspiration for Deck of Wonders. Now I know a turn based strategy video game and a solitaire expandable card game seem worlds apart, but what I take inspiration from is XCOM's approach to difficulty. Jake Solomon , Creative Director and Design Lead for XCOM, once described the series as " an unfeeling collection of systems ," and that's a fantastic encapsulation of why I love it. Unlike so many other "difficult" games, XCOM isn't trying to make you fail. It's certainly not trying to make you win, either, but is simply enforcing the rules of its various systems with ruthless indifference. It's up to you, the player, to navigate t
