I'm working on a card game where players move from stack to stack. Some of the stacks may become depleted but can still be moved onto (for various nefarious purposes). If you were to purchase such a game what would you want in the box? Would it depend largely on MSRP or do you have strong feelings gloss paper vs board?
I should point out that players are moving a pawn from stack to stack. From playtesting, there is some confusion when stacks run out for new players. That was why we thought a play mat might be in order.
It would also work thematically as the game takes place in a city and we might be able to do something really cool with a city in the background and the major roadways going in between the cards.
So, if it were for thematic reasons do you think that would make a difference?
