Shaka Shredders, a new card game featuring magnetic cards, will be hitting stores sometime this year. Each magnetic card has both a character and an ability, but players can mix and match abilities with Swaptop cards to form the ultimate team, then build a killer lineup of tricks, disses, and assists to show up opponents.
From the press release:
Each player acts as coach of a 20-card Shaka Shredders team of their choice composed of characters with individual strengths and weaknesses. The two decks available at launch feature either geeky, technical skaters or goony, school-skipping surfers, but players may trade between decks to create their own custom teams. To win over fans and declare victory, be the first to earn 20 “CHEER” points from the fictional crowd.
Play three types of cards against opponents: Tricks, Assists, and Disses. Each is represented by a smaller “Slice” piece that joins with a Shaka Shredder “Slab” piece to form a complete Swaptop card. During the game, swap in new Shaka Shredders to surprise opponents and increase the point value of tricks. Add unique assists to tricks and boost fan appeal; embarrass rivals by “dissing” them at the opportune time.
“As fun and wild as the characters are, the never-before-seen mechanics of Swaptop cards allow for a really high skill-ceiling,” said Gregory Paul, founder of Sunslap Studios. “Players will pick up the rules quickly, but when they fully realize all the nuances of strategic swapping, the real game begins”.
