According to a post made on the Penny Arcade web site, Gabe and Tycho have partnered with Sabertooth Games to create their very own Collectible Card Game. Collectible Card Games, or CCGs, are bought in packets or decks of trading cards and involve all sorts of characters or actions on each card with which players compete against each other.
The PA game will feature well know characters from the popular web comic and involve Sabertooth Game’s own unique gaming mechanics for battling within the game.
Here is a quote from the official press release: “Designed and illustrated by Penny Arcade’s Gabe and Tycho, this set of cards was inspired by the hijinks of their legendary web comic. Everything from the ‘Divx’ to Tycho’s ‘Really Big Word’ is included in this set of cards, allowing players to reenact the epic battle of Gabe and Tycho.” Erik Yaple, Head of Product Development says: “We are thrilled to be working with Penny Arcade. We see the characters of Tycho and Gabe as the Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer of 21st century.” “I’ve been playing CCGs from Sabertooth for years,” said Penny Arcade’s Tycho Brahe. “There’s simply no-one else I would trust to do it.”
