Amongst the many things that both my girlfriend and I enjoy are games from the Final Fantasy Series and board games. So when her birthday came along, I hatched this idea of creating her a personal collectible set of cards that would not only be beautiful to look at, but could also be played as a card game.
This project had me venturing into unfamiliar territory. Not only did I have to create a large number of illustrations for individual cards, a logo, an instruction manual, but I had to delve into the huge and complex world of game design. With almost close to no experience in this area, it took countless play tests before I finally arrived at a series of game mechanics that actually worked well and in a balanced manner.
The finished product boasts a total of 300 playing cards, 83 unique designs, a game manual and a custom-made box.
