Final Fantasy TCG

11 posts in this topic

So, the three starter decks based on FFVII, FFX, and FFIII are out, first base set is on delays from distributors, but the game is getting off the ground.

Info:https://www.fftradingcardgame.com/na

If I had to compare it to two games the most, it would probably be Magic and Naruto, though there is a lot of Yugioh and a bit of Kaijudo as well.

I'll tl;dr how the resources works mechanically opposed to other games, because I think it's amazing:

1.) You draw 2 cards over 1 (50 card deck)
2.) Your lands in this game have effect, but cost mana to play. (3 Mana land, deal 5 to a monster when you play it, tap this card plus 1 mana, give a monster haste for a turn.)
3.) You can also discard cards from your hand to pay for the cost of cards. Each card you discard gives you 2 mana in the color you discarded. You need at least one same-color mana to play a card.
 

Add that to the fact that all effects are spell speed 2 outside of playing monsters (forwards) and mana (backups) with phases identical to Yugioh and you have A LOT of complex lines of play.

Anywho, check it out! The link has a pdf of the card pool, there's a basic rules and instruction page, and I'd love to answer any questions you have. There is no announcement of Organized Play yet, but I know I have full intention on traveling once it is.  The game existing for 6 years in Japan, and balancing cards to reflect on their prior mistakes have me very confident in their R&D.

So far, it's probably the best tabletop experience I've ever had.

I really like new games and being a huge fan of Final Fantasy I would like to check this out, provided it has a base in my area.

So blocking does not dull the blocker, eh? Meaning I can block multiple times with a huge forward?

Correct. Damage lasts for the duration of the turn, and their attack power is equal to their health.

So I can block your 5000 attacker and then your 4000 attacker with my 9000 dude, and my dude will die afterwards.

There's also a party mechanic where i can have multiple dudes of the same color attack at the same time, and if they are confronted, you can redistribute the damage in anyway you would like to minimize casualties to your side of the field.

I have 4 competitive lists ready,  rush/tempo/control/combo, that between the 4, hit all six colors.

Let me know if anyone wants access to easy printing of these lists or anything like that. Costs for cards are outrageous until second wave; I don't have intention on buying until OP is announced.

Also, I'm really looking to build a team/network of serious players to bounce ideas together, share resources for events, and possibly make content, in the NE region.

Let me know if you'd be interested.
