MANCHESTER, England, April 14, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Steamforged Games is bringing SEGA’s® famed blue speedster to the tabletop in Sonic: The Card Game. Fast-paced and simple to pick up and play, the new game features colourful graphics and a racing theme for families and Sonic fans aged 6 and up.
Mat Hart, Co-Founder and Creative Director at Steamforged Games said:
“Sonic: The Card Game is fast family fun you’ll race through again and again. Here at Steamforged, most of us have been chasing rings with the blue hedgehog since we first played the original Megadrive game. Now we’re thrilled to be working with SEGA® and can’t wait to bring the game into the hands of Sonic fans of all ages.”
In Sonic: The Card Game, 2-6 players race through a new level every time they play. To win, they must collect rings, grab bonus cards and dodge enemies. The person with the most ring tokens and lives remaining wins.
Players select their favourite character — Sonic, Knuckles, Tails, Amy, Blaze, or Shadow — and shuffle the deck. As the dealer places down cards, they build a randomly generated level for players to race through.
Each time a new card is placed, they must decide whether to keep racing to try and grab a bigger pot of rings, or to retire and collect their share of the rings and bonus cards on the table. If players keep racing, they risk running into enemies and losing lives, but the chance to win more rings and bonus cards could be tempting enough to keep racing on.
Sonic: The Card Game hits stores in September 2021 and will be priced at $19.95/ £14.99/ €17.95 RRP. More information about the game is available on steamforged.com.
