capi's digital WC CCG has come together very rapidly over the past month, and now it's time for adventurous players to give it a try! Fans can check out the full rules here at the CIC, but capi has thoughtfully provided key information on how to get playing quickly at the project's VASSAL module page. You can also download the current test release package there. capi has also put together a variety of interesting theme decks to spice up the gameplay and kickstart the prep for new players. Let everyone know how it goes at the CIC Forums!
Here's a question for y'all - what's your typical deck size? I'm an old Star Trek CCG and MTG player, so I usually go for sixty card decks when I play CCGs in general, but running some numbers this morning that size of deck for WCCCG looks a little...anemic. IMHO.
