Spellbound: the Card Game
Spellbound is a two-player game that builds upon a standard deck of playing cards to create a simple yet engrossing game. Set in the fantasy world of Uldaerth, four factions vie for power in this fun and fast-paced game.
Two players compete to be the first to gather a powerful team of champions while blocking their opponent’s efforts. Mighty heroes, dangerous spells, and fantastic locations are all used by strategic players to outmanouver each other. A combination of planning, luck and patience will determine the ultimate victor in each duel.
With 52 hand painted pieces of original artwork, Spellbound is a passion and a creative outlet for my fantasy worldbuilding aspirations. Concieved as a neverending project with advanced rulesets, multi-player games and numerous expansions, the early stages of development have only recently been completed.
A basic game of Spellbound can last anywhere from five to twenty minutes and the easy to understand mechanics allow for a surprising amount of strategy. The game is simple to learn with the complete rules printed on one poker-sized playing card.
Visually, the cards are bright and engaging with primary colors representing the four suits as distinct factions living in a fantastical world. Human soldiers, magical beasts, undead assassins and fire-breathing dragons are painted in a variety of settings. Each unique card presents an individual character and fits the theme of its parent suit.
Having created the concept along with all of the design and artwork for this project, this game best represents my ideas in design and artwork: clarity, consistency and visual impact.
