Duel of the Prestidigitators

For the 2018 Global Game Jam, I designed a print-and-play 27-card microgame:

You are dueling prestidigitators, juggling magical orbs to attack one another. The first to destroy their opponent’s Phylactery wins.

You can download the PDF here. I welcome your feedback and questions.

Our brainstorming group somehow took the theme of “transmission” and went from sonar (shown in the theme video) to the Battle of the Atlantic (U-boat warfare) to Napoleonic warfare to millipedes with combat boots to juggling wizards. (The theme tie-in involves the transmission of energy from orbs to one another for attacks.)

Thanks to everyone from the Sarasota Game Developers group who volunteered for the game jam!
