Just to keep you guys up to date, I've got an artist for the cards, and he's great, so you'll be impressed.  Once the attacks are done, I'll start looking for kaiju to go in, but for now, we do the base :D
Oh wow! Do you have any samples of his art pieces or anything to see how his art is?

Well, he's completed art on the common cards, and on the organic cards.  We have 4 more groups to go!  I'll share one sample with you guys, but I want the big reveal to be just that :D

It's the art for one of the cards, not the whole card.  It's called Clutch.  It makes the enemy's attacks more difficult.

Update: Hoping to finish the art for all cards except monsters in the next 2 weeks. 

Notice: I've decided that starter kaiju that are actually the ones in the arts will be available with release for a very short time, then I'll get others made as generics for the remainder of the card game's existence(or til a season 2). 
I'll be putting up a spot to email me to get your own custom kaiju card after about a month of the card game being out.  This will let you work with me until we decide on some powers, then I have my artist do a rendition of your kaiju in the official card, and I get it to you.

With all that in mind, Please note that this will NOT be coming out soon.  It will require playtesting like crazy to make sure there are no god-combos, no ez-wins, and no one type that's just dominant over the rest.

PS: at some point or another, Gurral will be a card.  I got permission from Simon to throw him in as long as I don't use MF's art.

That sounds lovely! Maybe he can be in a "Legendary" edition pack or something

Mystical and Radiant are printed, and are mid-playtesting :D  They had some OP and super-weaks, and we've balanced them to be more fun.  The 2 games we played this weekend were great :D

There is a new rule for weapon attacks.  Consume any number of energy sources, draw that many cards, and pick one.  Dump all of them, and deal damage to the foe equal to the use cost of that picked card. - It gets you out of sticky situations by letting you deal some damage, and it can be quite brutal, but not OP.  I think it'll be final :D  It's still an either or for Weapon attacks and using Attack cards.

  All energy types are printed, played, and it's been pretty fun.  Still balancing the kaiju stats so that we don't have any OP guys.  I think Radiant is the only one that is still sticking out as a bit too OP at 1 grit, 1 tough, 1 brute, and 25 belly.  I think I'll have to pull the grit or the brute to make it even.

The energy cards are printed as well, though I'm considering making a few special ones.  There are 3 unique looking energy sources for each energy type.  I'll share one soon.  Things are to the point where we've played 2 sets of games of mixed energy using the "add an energy type" clause, and it works fine, and isn't OP or UP.  I think the base rules are now solidifying.  I'm going to start looking for loopholes and ways to break the game :D  Wish me luck!
