Fucking finally a card game that really hits me in the nerdom. Magic, pass. Pokemon, meh. Yug-oh, can't even spell it right. Marvel and DC ones that suck, big pass. Scott Pilgrim, though, that rubs my nips in a calming clockwise motion. Yeah... I'll be getting this.
Renegade Game Studios™ and Oni Press are delighted to announce Scott Pilgrim's Precious Little Card Game, an innovative deck-building game by Keith Baker. Based on the graphic novels by Bryan Lee O'Malley, fans will appreciate the detail and care taken by Baker to stay true to the heart of the series.
Being a grown-up is HARD and maybe not worth it? You might rather spend time tweaking your band’s set list until it’s guaranteed to get you that big gig opening for legit rockstars. Perhaps you’re better off dating someone a bit younger than chasing a fairytale romance with the age-appropriate girl (or boy) you met at a party. Maybe the drama constantly engulfing your pals feeds you, even if it is bringing your friends down. And don’t adults just sit at desks all day worrying about how bread makes you fat? Do adults ever even get attacked by random robot ruffians determined to pick a fight? Huh. Maybe there is something to getting it together…
Scott Pilgrim’s Precious Little Card Game is a deckbuilding game that challenges you to grow up and prepare for your finest hour. Players assume the roles of their favorite characters in the Scott Pilgrim universe, each of whom comes with a unique starting deck. Innovative double-sided cards let you decide whether to solve your problems with hard work and empathy, or whether to embrace the unpredictable world of gratuitous video game violence.
“Scott Pilgrim is an incredibly popular graphic novel series because it is so relatable,” says Renegade President Scott Gaeta. "Renting your first apartment, falling in love, and getting a job are things everyone's gone through. Keith Baker has done an incredible job recreating these life choices in a deck-building format while incorporating the video game style button-mashing combo moves that we loved in the graphic novel fight scenes.”
"Invite your friends! Throw a pizza party! But don't get the cards greasy," Scott Pilgrim creator Bryan O'Malley added.
Beyond the video-game-style combo moves unique to each character, fans will also appreciate the innovative double-sided cards. Players will be faced to make hard choices about whether to fight or upgrade their life with each card placed into the Plot line. Defeating the Evil Ex and collecting Power-Ups will help players inch their way towards victory.
Create your perfect life with Scott Pilgrim's Precious Little Card Game in hobby stores summer 2017. This deck-building game will have an MSRP of $45, is designed for 2-6 players to enjoy in 45-60 min. per game, and will captivate gamers ages 13 and up.
