AirknightP and I bought a domain for that game plus bought all the initial cards available but it died so fast we just tabled the idea of building a site.

lmao :mrgreen:

Well, good on you for at least making a prospective investment. :D

What was the domain's name?
I assume it's inactive regardless.

I actually like the concepts in it, although I think part of the problem
was that it had "Basic" rules that were nothing more than luck of the draw, and it's
"Advanced" rules, which really should have been it's only rules, lacked depth to them.

I've said it before on another thread, but each monster had a variant like "Gold Machine" or whatever which meant absolutely nothing
to the game, and at the bottom of the cards they had symbols for the monsters that also meant nothing.
Still, I like the concept of having a team that transforms, it's system of Kairu that served as your mana-type mechanic,
and even the clear cards that alterned the nature and powers depending on what is covered up.

The cartoon was terrible, though.
It wanted to be Pokemon, but wasn't even Digimon, and since all the monsters were digital "X-Drives" in the lore, they had no personality.
Also, it didn't help that three quarters of their monsters were just palette swaps of their other monsters.

They could have used some originality in the monster design.
Everything just changed color to have a slight variation on the effect.

So... still have the cards around to send me? :mrgreen:

You could guess and you'd be right. RedakaiCardGuide dot com. And, yes, it is inactive.

I'm pretty sure that AirknightP would not want to give them up. He is an avid collector of board/card games so much so that all of his closets are full of games.

Really?
That I did not know about AirknightP.
Well... that and most things, he's been rather sparse in the history of the forum. :D

Then again, considering he collects all the images for the guide, it's only natural.

One of these days I'll buy myself some just for the laughs.
They are quite cheap these days.

He actually collects all the data. Then I run a script to pull the images from a source that we found and run a few batch effects on them. I also have to convert the data to MySQL and import it into the database and run scripts to generate the new pages, plus to update all the pre-sorted pages.

Yeah, AirknightP seldom posts and lately probably doesn't look at the site much. He used to run YGO Tournaments at a Toys R Us store at around the time I met him.

The new LINK monsters are going to be a bother to implement since I'm going to have to alter the database and the card templates to accommodate them. I want the database to also track which directions are lit up on them.

Yeah, I can imagine with all the things they do differently, having them searchable would be a pain.
Would you be having them searchable by their Link arrow directions? If so, that would be a lot of work, but might be necessary.

Redakai would be fun to play with my nephew.
He's only 4 and doesn't comprehend not bending cards, lol.
The plastic cards would be nice. Can't bend them, they are animated, and there's no math to do.
Well, there's an issue of "which number is bigger", but that's about as complex as the maths get in the basic rules, lol.

lol, I Had suggested once we buy the rights from Spin Masters and we own the Redakai game. :D
However, there'd be so many things to fix with it, it would be easier just to start a fresh game with similar concepts.

So, AirknightP told me about this game, Mystic Vale that uses the same clear card mechanism but it is a completely different set of rules.

It's a bit worrisome that the official website lists one of the products as "Available April 2017" instead of the "Available Now!" that the first set is listed as, and even more worrisome that the event kit "Starts June 2017".
It seems its interest is already dead.

I do like the artwork, it gives it an almost old school D&D feel.
It seems a bit dull for a trading card game, though.
I mean, the first two phases of a turn are your "Planting Phase" and "Harvest Phase".
Also seems rule heavy, although admittedly I'm skimming the rule book.
Also, there's no actual battle or combat of any kind I can see.
Just a lot of resource manipulation to... advance your faction?
The game ends when a pool of counters runs out.

It seems too nerdy, even for a trading card game.
Great artwork, but it's a snooze fest.
