Looking for a way to mix things up on D&D night? Magic just not magical anymore? Final Fantasy fan Kenley Kristofferson has the answer for you with Final Fantasy: The Card Game. In the video above, Kristofferson debuts his game which features a mix of rules from Magic: The Gathering, Clue, and War. The game is largely inspired by Dissidia: Final Fantasy, which united series heroes and villains in one title for the first time.
Featuring the characters of the first ten Final Fantasy games, you will draw four characters for your party and battle, level them up, and aim to defeat the “final boss”. You’ll collect equipment, magic, and jobs along the way to bolster your characters’ power.
The rules can also be adapted to fit a particular Final Fantasy, such as Final Fantasy VII, where every character is able to cast magic. To get started, you can download the cards and rules by visiting Kristofferson’s blog post here. He has also provided the assets to create more cards and encourages making up your own way to play, and the game can be easily expanded to include newer Final Fantasy titles.
