    That must have taken you ages!

    Did you base the 'in play' layout on an existing game, or just put together something which looks believable?

    Ha! Nice! :smile:
    The design choices fit great!
    The buttons are maybe too over the top compared to the current aesthetic but good job nonetheless!

    Actually I've made ealier some assets https://en-forum.guildwars2.com/discussion/117729/game-concept-guild-wars-2-the-card-game for physical card game. So I re-used them in current project. So I had to work on UI/UX layouts and fiddle a bit with official textures/wallpapers/icons and all... so far it took me 15h. ;D

    About gameplay - yep, you can find physical card game mockup in link above. It's based on dead polish TCG game (since 6 years), but I reworked and changed like 50% of mechanics, so I'd say it's different game now. So far it should be playable on table. As digital game? Well, probably too! Since I managed to create scenes. :D

    Thank you! Tried my best, but I was busy with other projects so I had to sacrifice some time and hurry up this one... ^^

    Looks preem! Although it's not real :(
    Does it play more like Magic The Gathering, Hearthstone or Gwent?

    Hmmm It's totally a different game, I'd say it's a bit more complext than MtG. ( https://en-forum.guildwars2.com/discussion/117729/game-concept-guild-wars-2-the-card-game - this might visualise it better ;) )

    Round is split to turns, so players play their moves alternately (depending who have more Noble Characters or... bought initiative with gold). On Round start you draw 4+ max 3 cards (if you used "Location" cards as hand expansion). Each Round new Event is revealed too (modifies gameplay, like you cannot do diplomacy this round or duel characters, or have to pay gold taxes :P ).

    Each Turn you can do one Action + as much as you want minor moves. Action is playing a Character from hand, Card play rule with Action icon, challenging a duel or doing diplomacy. Duel and Diplomacy gives you Victory Points - once you collect them all - you win.

    There are two fields: Battleground and Summit Field (. On Summit Field you can keep Locations and Characters (if they have keywords allowing them to stay there). You can do diplomacy here but cannot duel Characters (until you have "Hotspur" Character or Cards allowing you to do it). On Battlefield You can duel or do diplomacy.

    There are also attachable cards like Effects(or they can be instant), Belongings(Mounts, Weapons, Armors, Items, etc) and Attacks (They're played with back-up, so opponent don't know card rules, they are revealed during duel if played, or during diplomacy for extra Victory Point).

    There are also 3 other cards which are 'permanent' on table: Strategy, Battle and Diplomatic Influences. They modify your playstyle generally.

    To fasten game, each Round, there are 2 Victory Points discarded from game from shared pool (if shared pool is empty - each player discards 1). :)

    So that's the quick preview of rules. :P

    Maybe one day ;) If i will find enough of time, I'll try to translate rules to english and prepare printable cards (at least two decks for versus).

    Tbh, I would totally play that if it was a thing. And if it even had physical cards that can be used as well, I would still buy them for a collection.

    Make Banner Warrior for Zergs great again!!!

    Sad thing is.. I'd love for Gw2 to have an actual card game XD

    I'll always have fond memories about FF8's stupidly addictive card game, good times ^^
    Imagine something like that in Gw2, challenging other players around town and gambling your best cards against their best cards.. going around the world killing specific creatures and hoping for a rare, unique card drop..
    Challenging specific NPC's in the game daily for the chance to win a rare unique card from them (Queen Jennah should totally have a unique Logan Thackery card)
    Man that be so fun to have ^^
