2015 - 02 - 04 comic

Talk about today's strip, or anything about the comic in general. You can also talk about any of the characters... but don't expect a response. They're FICTIONAL, you guys... sheesh. :)

It's taken this long to see the MLP cardgame?

Was this a recent discovery for the author, or was it just that it fit now finally for the characters?


Also, are there any other players on these boards?

Okay, the follow-up was so true.

The rule books that come with the game are hard to make sense of to play. 'Tis no wonder he wound up summoning a demon when reading it aloud.

He has yet to truly see OP.

Although I don't think I had that much problem when learning it back in the day. It was definitely weirdly laid out, but the concepts weren't that hard.

The hard part was unlearning the other CCGs that one played before.

Also, The Werefrog never saw Fluttershy as OP. Sure, the premier manes basically had Fluttershy, Rarity, or Rainbow Dash if one wanted to win, but now, with DJ Pon3, there's no contest. She is the best mane, even though Derpy is the best pony, and as such, her mane will be the favourite of The Werefrog.

It looks like the "summon your animal companions to your location for free" part is what makes it the most broken. Balancing it would require making it inconveniently expensive to summon more than one companion per turn.

It's not actually "summon to your location" for free, it's "move from another location to this location when a certain event happens" for free.

You have to have already summoned the critter friend for it to work, and that critter friend would need to be somewhere else. Of course, there are times you wouldn't want to move the critter to join her, such as if Spring Forward is on the other side of the problem.
