WHAT IS MINION?
Minion is a trading card game in which two lords battle it out with their minions to crush their foes. In this game two players both have a deck with 49 cards and one Lord card. In which they'll use to fight against each other until one players lord card is killed or a players minion deck is completely gone.
The game takes inspiration from MOBA's such as LOL (League of Legends) and DOTA (Dawn of the Ancients). Using minions like heroes and lords like towers. The game focuses on grouping up the right minions to get the best team possible and fight the opponents team in a bid to get past them and take their lord down.
Minion is a card game of strategy where you have the power to command your army of Minions, utilise their own strengths and abilities and find the best combinations to defeat your opponent’s Lord.
However, nothing comes free in this game, each ability you use causes you to sacrifice your own Minions in order to use them, so you could easily find yourself short of allies as the fight goes on!
The first set of Minion consists of two 50 card starter decks as well as a 56 card booster pack set!
We attempted a Kickstarter over a two years ago when the game was still in development and were lucky to get private funding to progress further. We listened to feedback we received, made some great changes and upgrade to the Art and System and now have a much slicker more polished game.
We had the Set 1 cards printed via Cartamundi (who print pokemon and magic) so they are super high quality. We also have all the decks shrink wrapped!
What we are using kickstarter for is to get much nicer Boxes and Boosters for final release.
We currently have thousands of booster packs ready to go, but they are plain foil.
What we will do with the kickstarter funds is have high quality booster pack stickers and new starter deck boxes printed (including rule sheets inside them).
If you are interested in supporting the final release of the Kickstarter then you can follow the campaign here.
