What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Kards is an upcoming downloadable card game available for Windows PCs. The game is a World War II-themed collectable card game, and will allow players to choose from one of five separate factions from the battle: The US, British, Russians, Germans, or Japanese, each with their own unique units and abilities represented by historically accurate propaganda posters and drawings. Each turn, players will deploy units and attempt to gain control of the “frontline,” or the center of the playing arena, to launch strikes against their opponent. Like other collectable card games, your goal is to lower your opponent’s health to zero. But unlike other card games, where you fight a persona or a character, you’re trying to destroy your opponent’s headquarters. While combat is the focus of the game, there’s no blood or gore shown, and no inappropriate content to be found in the game. There will be the possibility of learning as well, as cards will have some historical documentation explaining the significance of the unit or poster.
