    BG Forums - the TCG

    You've probably seen some of the cards and stuff that I've posted. After a few suggestions to actually make it into a game and some contemplation of how to make it work I came up with a good system (I think). Anyway, if someone is flash or java savvy and can make a system that allows this game to be played against other people/save decks then it'll own. ;o

    How to win:
    Make 30 drama in the database before your opponent to win.

    How to play:
    The game is much like the BG forums you all know and love. There are people, there is drama and theres other stuff too.

    People - There are 2 types of people, BG members and forum whores. There are no real differences however there are some cards that effect only a certain group.

    Drama - Drama is brought about in 2 ways, Job Abilties and Item cards. People who are unlucky cannot use Item cards to increase their drama. Some cards can also be used against the opponent to decrease drama or derail threads.


    Generally, the game works like this. Drama can only be started by placing a person on the forums. You can only have a maximum of 2 threads down at one time, and you cannot take a card back to your hand after it's been placed. Unlike other TCG were you fight each other and stuff, the numbers on the people cards determine their maximum drama/ability. When a persons thread has reached the maximum drama, it is moved to the database and is completely safe from any sort of derailment or -drama. The ability number determines what type of Job Abilities or items you can use per turn.

    For example lets say you have 2 active drama down, and their ability number (the second one) totals 5. That means each turn you can use a JA/item that costs 5 or some various sum of that. Drama threads in the database still add their ability to your total. Your usuable points are restored at the begining of your next turn, and cards just placed down need to wait a turn before its usuable.

    Other stuff:

    Derailment - Uh oh, someone derailed the thread. Derailed threads go instantly into the database unless somehow stopped. While the drama it created counts towards your total to win (if negative you lose drama), that persons ability does not count towards your total.

    Lock - Sometimes threads get locked, and the drama/ability does not get counted at all. The most nazi of actions.

    For anyone confused here's a picture of a card.

    The drama max/ability are under the name, and the type of person is to the right of it. Some people also have certain powers that are activated at times. For that card, if derailed you pick an opponents card and lock it.

    Hopefully I explained it well. >.> any questions?

    I'm actually an advanced Flash designer. >_<

    Not many people know that...

    P.S. The game will suck if there is no Care-O-Meter card.
