War of Faith is a card game and board game hybrid. This card game is based heavily on Magic the Gathering and the Pokemon Trading Card Game (TCG) in many respects and fans of both those games will appreciate it. You assume the role of an all powerful god ruling over a small island of people. Your main goal is to gain Faith Points from your population of followers by sending certain prophets to the land to spread your good word, or grant certain miracles that raise happiness. On the other hand, you can grant powerful spells called smites that hinder your rivals' productivity. There are other ways to win, but they are more complicated.
By being set up as a hybrid of both a board game and card game, this game will bring a unique and fun experience to the table. It will include hexagonal tiles like the ones on the left that will represent a certain region or territory of influence. Each will be a different biome like forest and mountain and each represent different cultures . There will be a unique art direction for each. The more tiles you control, the easier it will be to gain influence from your followers. Each region will have stats like population count for basic generation of Faith, Alignment (good or evil) to indicate what type of prophets can be played, and culture which will give a basic idea of how well off your people are. Most of your prophets, smites, and miracles will focus on regulating these stats. The most difficult potion, until we figure out a more efficient method, is keeping track of all of these things with tokens. Also, there will be a method of bending people to your godly will by sending them into battle in the name of your glory. However, this aspect of the game is not as polished as it could be, so I will talk about that later. Right now it includes the use of military "general" cards to recruit powerful armies.
The actual cards that you play with will be similar to what you see below. The types are divided into smites, prophets, and miracles. Each have their own cost to use. In other words, Prophets have Alignment, and smites\miracles will require spending some Faith Points. Feedback is always accepted <3 Kyle :D
