The Card Game of Oz Card CollageGame Salute and Orion’s Bell have launched The Card Game of Oz on Kickstarter as players will look to craft their own story lines based upon the classic L. Frank Baum fantasy novels. The first release focuses on Dorothy’s adventures in the wonderful world of Oz, as just about anyone with a pulse is intimately familiar with from the beloved Wizard of Oz film. The Kickstarter runs through March 15th with a funding goal of $15,000. Stay tuned for an upcoming TGG video look at the gameplay you’ll be able to expect from The Card Game of Oz!

From Game Salute:

In The Card Game of Oz, players explore L. Frank Baum′s The Wizard of Oz, creating and exploring twisted and fanciful storylines.

The idea is pretty basic:

A storyline is laid out before you. It is your job, as Author of your own Oz story, to populate it with characters. Each character’s vitality is worth so many points to the story. At the end of the game, the Author whose characters have the greatest total vitality wins the game.

Sounds simple enough? But it can’t be that easy. It isn’t.
 
In The Card Game of Oz, you’re sharing your storyline with other Authors. There may even be multiple storylines at once. Characters come and go from various locations, each having a different effect on the story. The locations themselves might even change right out from under the feet of your characters.
 

Characters might be unexpectedly shifted around. Objects and other characters can affect the story. Not to mention Effects, Events, and Spells that can change everything in a blink of an eye.
