Bloodborne: The Card Game
Bloodborne: The Card Game is based on a roleplaying video game of the same name, originally published for PlayStation 4. In this world, Yharnam is afflicted with a bloodborne disease, and you are left with the job of locating and curing this strange disease. You’re sent into the Chalice Dungeon, the dungeons from the video game providing depth and variety. In the card game, these are represented by a deck of cards with monsters and bosses. Your job is to kill the last boss and score the highest.
The game is partly a cooperative game insofar as the players have to work together to deal with the monsters. But it is also a competitive game because there is a clear winner – the one with the most points. Also, he or she gets to leave the dungeon, while the others rot in there forever! The gameplay lasts for around 30 to 45 minutes and provides a challenging though short experience for many gamers.
Bloodborne: The Card Game is a 3 to 5 player game and is designed by the renowned designer, Eric Lang. The illustrations are made by Sean Chancey and are helpful in giving a deep sense of the theme. While the video game was released in 2015, Bloodborne: The Card Game came out just a year later and was published by CMON Limited.
There is definitely a lot of difference between the video game and the card game, but it’s the same world and the card game is just as interesting and difficult. So if you are a fan of Bloodborne, then this is one tabletop game you shouldn’t be wary to try out! But the beauty of this game is that you don’t really have to be a fan of the video game. Bloodborne: The Card Game is quite capable of holding its own.
