So I've been hard at work at an idea I have had for some time now, I call it Political Reign.
Basically, it is like a card game, but instead of playing against one or two people, you are competing with everyone in the game.
Let me tell you a little about it, and I am far from finished just the game engine is complete, the supporting content on the site is far from done.
When you sign up you have to select one of 5 industries from Oil & Energy, Defense contracting, Banking, Agriculture, and Social Services. Each industry with their own advantages and disadvantages.
Each round you get 3 cards ( you start with 7 ) each round is a day. You use these cards to put resources into play to make money, you use money to play better cards that can pump up your stats or tear down your opponents.
Play is restricted to your sphere of influence, which is the closest 10 players score wise to you, so in order to attack the top you have to work your way up. How the scores are calculated is a secret
Scores are fluid, so destroying another players agents or resources, could knock them out of your sphere making it impossible for them to retaliate.
So if anyone is interested in a political strategy game, interested in helping craft rules, and ideas, into making this a fun and addictive game, please sign up and let me know any bugs, or errors you see!
KEEP in mind, this is far from a perfect release yet, Im just testing the flow of the game, and the cards, and the rules engine. But I will gladly accept all feedback.

The idea is to choose an industry to lead, and then play cards ( ala Magic the gathering ) which are based in today's political climate.
The Five industries all have their own unique forms of attacks, and ability to make money...
So you need to deploy your agents, enhance or instant attack other players, etc...
The coming soon features will be government officials:
This feature was supposed to be core to the game, but it got pushed back.
The basis idea for this will be one a week, laws will be passed, so for that wek, all the players can haggle and fight, and fund elected officials to either push or deny the law.
You can buy a senator, or congressman, and have them in your pocket where they will vote with what you want, but if exposed that senator will get voted out of office, and all that money you poured into him is lost...
This is a high end feature, and there will only be a limited amount of senators and representatives, making the bidding very competitive...
I think the greatest part of what I have built as the base, is a fun game with a card based engine which can grow forever... there is no limit to the type of cards I can make, and I freely welcome any ideas for some.
Check out the Card Depot to just look at some of the cardfs you can get for just a flavor.
