After seeing nothing but playtest cards for weeks (which are just text and numbers in boxes), I got to see the art and design for real cards last week and said, "Wow, those look great!"

Then they showed me some promo cards this morning. mad.gif I have to wait two more months to get my hands on these for real?

Oh, and Omakase, go ahead with any of those questions you might have had smile.gif

And no, it's not like Yu-Gi-Oh!, except that they're both trading card games. After all, Monopoly is nothing like Candyland, even though both are board games...

I know it might be a bit too early for this question, but are there any chances of the game being released in Europe, specifically the Netherlands? biggrin.gif

And again about the gameplay... What difficulty rating would it be given? From 1 to 5, 5 being way out of my league? (I tried the Dragonball Z tcg once, but I failed horribly - that's saying something)

And how did you end up working on this game? smile.gif Were you invited to join the ride or...?

As of now, the only European country we'll be in is the UK. But we're working on getting a more general European license.

I'd say gameplay is a 2 or 3. By comparison, I had to take the DBZ rules very, very slowly when I learned the game. For this game, I had an early draft of the rules and understood most of it (and have since rewritten most of it smile.gif

And as for me...well, you can read the press release here, but the short version is that I've worked in the card game industry for nine years, recently left my job with the CCG magazine Scrye, and met up with the JoyRide guys at GAMA Trade Show in March and the offered me the job a few days later. I'm also 31, unmarried, Aquarius...oh, wait, that's probably too much ohmy.gif

Oh, and do you want to see a card? Looky here!

a tcg would be pretty kool BUT all anime trading card games (except for yu-gi-oh) have all turned out pretty bad from my point of view

Normally it is pretty hard to create a card game based on an Anime that stays true to the anime. We have grown to love a lot of these characters and each have our own opinion of who would win in a fight, whether it be Al vs Ed or Naruto vs Sauske ( I know shameless Naruto plug but hey ) The only card game that has stayed true to the show is of course Yu-Gi-Oh which is just a 22 minute commerical for the card game anyways.

I'm just looking for a game where I can have fun and play with my favorite characters. It looks like you can only tell once the game is released. FMA has been an older audience Anime with deeper ideas and thoughts. Hopefully the game reflects that and shows some strategy. And if not that, hopefully they cards all just look as cool so its fun to collect.

First of all, thanks for the answering session! smile.gif I'm glad to hear about the European license, but I guess as long as it's in the UK, I'm also fine with it. Since it's easier on the shipping rate and my wallet. tongue.gif

Nine years. Wow. To add to my question, did you have this line of work (TCG) in mind when you graduated?

And the image in that card isn't taken from the original footage nor any official posters, right? I was under the impression this card game wasn't the same as the Japanese one, but I forgot to verify. biggrin.gif;; But if that's the case, kudos for a job very well done. The designs look very authentic. biggrin.gif (And the text isn't very hard to comprehend either tongue.gif)

That is how some games, like Pokemon and Yu-Gi-Oh!, come to America, but that's more a case of the company that makes the CCG in Japan licensing the CCG to an American company.

In our case, we dealt direct with Square/Enix, the makers of the FMA property (though they might make the CCG in Japan -- not sure of that) and created an original game. It's our own design, completely independent from the Japanese version.

Hope that clears up any confusion!

Yes, every image on the cards comes from the series. I don't know the episodes inside and out, but I think the one on the Ed Elric card is from the first episode (or early in the second?), during his fight with Cornello.

My greatly compressed origin story is that I went to Gen Con (the big gaming convention over here) during my last two years of college, bugged a company there enough that they hired me a few months out of college, and have been riding the wave ever since! So, yeah, I sort of had it on my mind when I graduated.

With good luck, maybe someday you can watch cartoons at work, too smile.gif

Wow, did I answer everyone's questions already? Guess I can take a nap, then...

Jason, what have you done to make sure this game is worth playing. Although there are a lot of Anime based games that were fun to play, it doesn't seem like many of them pick up as well as they should. .Hack, Inu Yasha, are two games that I've heard of that were decent, well maybe just .hack//Enemy, but didn't pick up. Another thing, what have you done to make sure this just doesn't become the next Yu-Gi-Oh/Pokemon. I love the fact that the games are still around, I just wanna make sure that I don't have to spend $100 on a stupid card just because every kid out there wants <<Insert a card name you already though of here>> because they saw it on TV.

"What have you done to make sure this game is worth playing?"

Wow, that's a loaded question smile.gif Of course, we think we've made a fun and engaging game for both fans of FMA and card games. But that's marketingspeak that I'm sure you've heard before. Personally, I'm excited because I haven't found a CCG in some time that I could really get into. We just got demo decks in the office the other day, and I'm dying to put my own deck together (and see some of the nifty alternate-art cards that I've seen files of).

As for your second comment, about "the next Yu-Gi-Oh/Pokemon," I'm not sure what you mean. Our translucent plastic cards will go for quite a bit, but they'll have versions in the regular card mix that are identical, gameplay-wise. As for cards being popular because they're on the show -- well, that's kind of the point. We print cards people want to see tongue.gif
