Introduction:

Power Zone is a Trading Card Game created by Zaziuma. I have been working on this for a while now on Dueling Network Forums, but as there is not as much activity over there anymore, I wanted to post it here as well. I once made another game called Power Realm, this is a reimagining of that game, due to my computer breaking, and me losing my project files and me having lost a lot of the progress with cards as well. However, this also gave me the option to change certain aspects of the game, hopefully for the better. The game is however mostly the same, with the biggest change so far being the addition of Sub-Groups and that sets are now only 30 cards at the same time, and also have names, so if you already know the game, you can jump right into this one.

 

If you have any questions, you find any issues or simply have a suggestion, feel free to post it below. Below you'll find the rules and the cards, there will come more at another time, which I will update about in this thread.

Elements of Power: The first set is called Elements of Power (EOP) and contain 3 Groups, Water, Fire and Nature. These Groups have many various playstyles in this set, which is meant to set up a diverse game from the get-go, allowing players to play in many different ways. It is simple though as well, as it's the first set, it won't overwhelm you either. It features 5 Terms, those being BARRAGE, TEAM, BLOCK, QUICK and MEDIC, which you can read about in the rules. It also features many Sub-Groups as well, as it's the first set, these are not all explored so far, with the only one so far being the Flame Beast Sub-Group.

 

Men & Machine: The second set is called Men & Machine (MEM) and contains 2 new Groups, Human and Machine. As with the previous set, these Groups don't focus on much due to this being early sets, so these go for various different playstyles.

There's a lot here, but I can give you a tip for UI design. Instead of having 3 rows of 10 cards lined up next to eachother, you could just have 3 decks of cards you can draw out of. This would save space, and would allow for you to make a board that isn't 3 by 10, maybe 3 by 4/5 to make the move phase matter more.

This is an interesting game from what I'm looking at, but I'm not going to be able to analyze this in one day.

I'm also going to post a card game idea I spent a couple months on, so maybe you could check that out later.

Didn't actually know this part of the YGO card maker community existed. Pretty cool.
Archetypes I'm proud of (newest to oldest)

The Move Phase does matter quite a bit actually, a lot of cards rely on having cards adjacent to them, some cards like being in certain zones because their ATK and DEF are higher in them, some have effects that only activate in certain zones. Since you don't know the cards you flip up, you sometimes need to move them. I don't understand how making the field smaller would help either. Regardless, at this point the game is designed with that in mind, having cards that can move with face-down cards, being able to see face-down cards for other effects, flip them face-up and much more, so a good deal of cards would have to be removed or changed to make that happen, so I would probably never do this regardless. The game was designed with this in mind from the start, even when it was called Power Realm, it was my basic concept when I started, such a fundamental change would make the game different from what I had in mind. I appreciate the idea, but I decline it.
