And you thought the fact that Dungeons and Dragons is coming to Facebook was nerdy. Now, a real collectible card game, based on a fake collectible card game, has hit Facebook. Dire Wolf Digital has released Big Bang Theory: Mystic Warlords of Ka'a to the platform.
And yes, it's entirely inspired from the dorky card battle game that Sheldon, Leonard, Howard and Raj duke it out through on the wildly popular CBS sitcom of the same name Well, without the subhead, of course.
The game, said to be in "preview beta," released in late July and plays much like classic card games of nerdery like Magic: The Gathering, Yu-Gi-Oh and Pokemon cards, but with a far simpler interface and play style. (Full disclosure: all of which I played in my hay-days of intense nerdom.) The way cards defeat each other in battle is governed by a simple rune system--a glorified rock, paper, scissors game, it seems.
Players stack these cards up against one another amidst the quirky, witty dialog you expect from the show every week. Once this effective game of War (remember that game?) is over, some of those cards hit the "Battle Line," which is where you can damage your opponent.
At this time, there are two factions of cards to play with, and players can duel their friends, too. Now, if only Sheldon's drawn-out, crazy explanations continued throughout the game.
