Orphan Black is getting a commemorative card game for its final season. Check it out.
If you have not been watching Orphan Black there’s just no helping you. It’s some pretty imaginative sci-fi and I’ve been enjoying its run–but this isn’t really the time or the place to dig into just how perfect Tatiana Maslany is at playing Sarah, Helena, Alison, Rachel, and Cosmina–hence the name of the game, Clone Club. I mean you could basically have that be the tagline for the series and it’d be just as fine–but we’re not here to dissect the series. We’re here to talk about the new card game that’s just been announced from IDW. It’s a “matrix-building” game where you build up your own pool of genetic material that’s all interconnected. And you’re trying to make the perfect (or at least the best) combination end up in your own matrix.
If you like deck/stronghold/kingdom/whatever builders, and if you like Orphan Black, this is probably the game for you.
