Tridek: Creatures of Galena Kickstarter Live Now

Tridek - Creatures of Galena

Tridek evolves the traditional gaming experience of a Trading Card Game by innovating and enhancing the core features players expect in a card game, with a new resource system that removes the typical waiting times found in Trading Card Games without compromising the strategic depth.  Gamers can play using their individual style by building decks to fit their own needs and objectives.  Welcome to the planet of Galena where powerful creatures are manipulated to compete in the professional sport of Tridek!

One major gameplay innovation of Tridek revolves around the resource system.  It utilizes a give-and-take method that adds momentum and strategic depth.  Each card has a resource cost and yield that keeps available resources in motion, requiring gamers to use forethought before throwing down a card, as they must consider a variety of tactical options.  The other benefit of Tridek’s resource system is the removal of the “luck factor”.  Players won’t need to wait 10 turns to perform an action simply because they lack resources.

Another gameplay innovation of Tridek revolves around the Victory Point system.  Unlike many other DTCGs, every card in Tridek has its own valuable role to fill.  The weakest creatures, for example, may have the highest Victory Points while the larger creatures might be lower.  This opens up many tactical options for you to discover and develop into effective winning strategies.  It also ensures that Tridek never devolves into “the biggest cards win”.
