My original goal for The Road to Ruin was for it to be a 60-card game. However, as development progressed, it was apparent that the game would have to be larger. Instead, I settled for a couple of formats for the game:
- Medium pro-box from The Game Crafter
- 120 Cards from DriveThruCards
The DriveThruCards version of the game was planned to only use cards, so the game had to work as a boxed game with dice and character tokens, or with dice cards and BYO character tokens. With this in mind, I laid out the materials for each of the games, and also costed out both versions. The costs are now out of date, so don't read into these...
So the unreleased DriveThruCards (cards only) version of the game, has 120-ish cards:
And the version for The Game Crafter is significantly different:
I even did a mock-up version of the box from The Game Crafter, and compared it to the actual version in this video:
