In the "Console Game", the 64 most important game consoles from video game history engage in an epic trump cards game.
Which console is better? This question is likely to be as old as video gaming itself. In the Console Game, it is set to be answered once and for all.
The trump card game features categories like 'Year', 'Launch Price' and 'Units sold worldwide', in which each console is challenged by its competitors. The basic pack contains 32 of the most important consoles from the history of video games. Two booster packs (16 cards each) add selections of 'handhelds' and 'rarities' into the game.
From the Magnavox Odyssey to the SNES and the Neo Geo – all major milestones are game. Furthermore, some rather unknown machines are part of the deck: The Apple 'Pippin' and the 'Nintendo 64 DD', a drive for magneto-optical discs that was connected underneath the N64 may not be familiar to everyone.
All the cards can be flipped through on the game's website, where it is also ready to be pre-ordered ($14,99, including U.S. shipping) now – set to ship in October:
