Hi guys, I'm posting around a preview of a project I've been working on, a card game based on the LoL IP. While it's obviously a fan project, I'm doing my best to ensure it is developed as close to professional good practice as possible- the results have been pretty good so far, but I really need more testing and feedback to hit the polish hard.

If you'd like a precis on the game you can read it here- http://makeagameofthat.wordpress.com/2013/03/26/breakfast-of... though be aware a lot has changed since then.

You can download the pack here- http://www.mediafire.com/download/sgz1dra14a2uwqg/LoLCG+prev...

It contains a set of print and play decks and an abridged rulebook so you can get a feel for the game's mechanics.

I'd love to hear your thoughts, here or via the project's email- lolcgproject@gmail.com

Neat. Although the fog-of-war element of the game will be missed.

Re: LoLCG preview set
Might it be a good idea to actually say what "LoL" means in this context? That acronym stands for more than one thing. I was able to figure it out by examining the URL, but still.

I Agree. The game looks great, but I initially took it as "Laugh Out Loud Card Game (LoLCG, as I think will most of the rest of the internet.

My first thought was Lands of Lore.

I haven't gotten to play-testing yet, but I noticed Blue Team's Negatron Cloak a whooping 4 magic resist which builds into a Spirit Visage with only 2. Is this correct?

Thanks,

Hmmmm, a version of LoL where raging idiots don't ruin the game for new players? Count me in.

Depends on who you play this card game with.

nice pickup. Dunno how that managed to get in there XD.

All the basic items are priced at 2 tokens for a point of statistic



Btw, for those of you who are picking this up and having a go, please please we would love your feedback and thoughts, particularly just on the basic way the game plays- we're still a bit early to be focusing on balance right now, We want to make sure the shell of the game is intuitive and plays smoothly and without too much clutter on the tabletop.
