You can try Alpha Clash on Tabletop Simulator before the real thing is out.
Just three days before the Alpha Clash TCG kickstarter ends, its creators have revealed a surprise mod for it on Tabletop Simulator. You will now be able to try out the superhero based card game on Steam before you decide to invest in the game itself.
“Our game features world-class artwork, amazing gameplay, and is steeped in rich history and story,” says the Kickstarter page for the TCG project. “This game is the superhero-themed TCG the industry has been waiting for! This game was developed by a team of card game experts AND has been extensively tested by a large group of highly competitive card players and judges from many popular games.”
As it stands, the Kickstarter for Alpha Clash is at $404,684, with the original goal of just $99,999. It’s safe to say that with the game reaching over four times its original goal, many people are looking forward to getting their hands on the superhero-based TCG. In addition, the team also released images of the full debut set and two print-and-play decks on Discord.
The creators seem pretty confident about the turnaround time from Kickstarter to first rollout. “We have already completed a proof print of the first set and have everything buttoned up as we enter the post-campaign production process. You can count on this campaign as we expect faster than average turnaround times.” Along with that, they shared a short clip of a machine that prints and cuts cards at a fairly fast pace.
With such high Kickstarter funding achieved, there’s no doubt that TCG fans are loving what they see and can’t wait to get their hands on Alpha Clash. It seems something similar—albeit criminal—happened with Pokemon cards in Tokyo. A group of thieves broke into a Tokyo-based store and made off with over $11,000 worth of Pokémon cards. One of the main reasons they were targeted is the ridiculous real-world value applied to these cards, sometimes in the millions.
It also appears to have been a well-planned robbery, as police report the thieves scaled the building to a second-floor glass door, used a blowtorch to gain entry and took the cards before anyone noticed.
