PRESS RELEASE –
Alderac Entertainment Group (AEG) is pleased to announce that its best-selling card crafting game Mystic Vale has been nominated for a 2017 ORIGINS Award for Best Traditional Card Game.
The ORIGINS Awards are presented annually by the Academy of Adventure Gaming Arts & Design, at a ceremony traditionally held during the ORIGINS Game Fair in Columbus, OH. This year’s ORIGINS will be held from June 14-18.
Mystic Vale is the first game to feature AEG’s card crafting system. Players in Mystic Vale take the role of druids working to heal a wilderness blighted by dark magic. Each turn the players acquire new Card Advancements from a shared pool, and add them to their existing deck, upgrading and changing their cards as they play. After a pre-determined number of victory points are scored, the player with the most total victory points from the shared pool, and from cards crafted in play is the winner. The game is designed by John D. Clair, and was released in 2016. Learn more at https://www.alderac.com/mystic_vale.
