The game is designed by Keith Baker (Gloom) and illustrated by O’Malley. Players take the role of a character in the Scott Pilgrim universe and face their most epic challenge yet – growing up and becoming a responsible adult… or not. Each unique starting deck contains problems that must be confronted, and the double-sided cards offer two options: the grown-up way of working things out with hard work and empathy, or embracing the unpredictable world of gratuitous video game violence as conflict resolution.
Th game includes 222 double-sided cards, which include 6 unique starting character decks (10 cards each), 6 oversized character cards, and 5 oversized evil ex cards. The game is for 2 – 6 players, ages 13 and up, and plays in 45 – 60 minutes. MSRP is $45.00. Release is planned for summer.
"Scott Pilgrim is an incredibly popular graphic novel series because it is so relatable, " Renegade President Scott Gaeta said. "Renting your first apartment, falling in love, and getting a job are things everyone's gone through. Keith Baker has done an incredible job recreating these life choices in a deck-building format while incorporating the video game style button-mashing combo moves that we loved in the graphic novel fight scenes. "
"Invite your friends! Throw a pizza party! But don't get the cards greasy," Bryan O'Malley added.
