Two thoughts run through your mind when you’re staring at the box for Scott Pilgrim’s Precious Little Card Game:
- There wasn’t a Scott Pilgrim card game already? Shouldn’t there have been one out six years ago?
- Where is the new wave of cartoony, humor-based comic books that Scott Pilgrim should have heralded? Lumberjanes isn’t enough! Comics are still too serious….
It didn’t happen in the wake of the comic’s success and it didn’t happen when the movie came out, but it’s happening now. Renegade Game Studios is producing this better-late-than-never product, and here’s how it works.
Scott Pilgrim’s Precious Little Card Game is a deckbuilding game that challenges you to grow up and prepare for your finest hour. Players assume the roles of their favorite characters in the Scott Pilgrim universe, each of whom comes with a unique starting deck. Innovative double-sided cards let you decide whether to solve your problems with hard work and empathy, or whether to embrace the unpredictable world of gratuitous video game violence.
Yes, defeating evil exes is part of the gameplay. Precious Little Card Game supports up to six players and the box contains 222 cards in all (since they’re double-sided, that’s 444 possible moves). Renegade doesn’t have a specific day of release listed, and if there’s a way to preorder the game I haven’t found it, but it is coming. Get your own precious little copy this summer.
