The Metagame: Videogame Edition

The Metagame: Videogame Edition

The Metagame: Videogame edition is a card game about the aesthetics of videogames.

It premiered at the 2011 Game Developers Conference (GDC) in San Francisco and was played by an estimated 2,500 participants during the week-long conference. At the conference, we kept getting requests for a full deck – so we made a kickstarter page while still at GDC, and successfully launched the videogame edition that same year, in December 2011. A year later, we released an expansion for the videogame edition. Both the main deck and expansion are out of print, and collector’s items by now!
