BATTLE SPIRITS SAGA CONTENT
Competing in the Card Game Coliseum
In Feburary 2023, I heard about Bandai's new TCG, Battle Spirits Saga. I decided to set the challenge for myself - 1 month to prepare before flying out to Vegas for their Grand Openning tournament. I ended up placing 66th out of the pool of over 400+ competitors, and I figured I had enough competitive know-how and the chops to maybe start making content for the game. Above is the first piece of content, talking about my experience prepping and then competing in the tournament.
Connecting card game systems to see what we can accomplish
Having played dozens of card games, I wanted to see what could be done and if it was possible to combine card game systems together. The initial pitch was converting Yu-Gi-Oh cards to Magic the Gathering and seeing whether the mechanics were still possible within Magic's ruleset. The intended followthrough was to create more videos in this same style to see how far we could go with combining card games together.
THE POKEMON DECKBUILDER GAME
A Fanmade Tabletop Simulator Deckbuilder
I found the Pokemon Deckbuilder Game on a Tabletop Simulator game server in 2019, and have been contributing to it in multiple areas. I've helped playtest new content made by the game's primary developer, 3vo, edited cards, and working on content to be featured on my YouTube channel - How to Play and game footage being the main areas as of writing. Since 3vo's absence working on the project, the development assitance has waned and has become more player moderation.
A designer's breakdown of the eponymous "children's trading card game"
Yu-Gi-Oh! remains one of my favorite card games from my youth, and now as an older, wiser game designer, I've wanted to go back and really look at some of my favorite decks under a designer's microscope. This video series is my attempt at talking about Yu-Gi-Oh through a designer's lens.
