Many perfectly good sodas are soon to be ruined by the addition of coffee grounds, beetle butter, and Ham Chunk Juice as "Dweeb" cups are prepared across the land. Cryptozoic Games has announced their upcoming release of Adventure Time Card Wars Game, the game Finn and Jake play in the "Card Wars" episode with the titles of "cool guy" and "dweeb" on the line.
Adventure Time has always worn its gaming influences on its sleeve in both the animated version and the comics. Finn and Jake already have a presence in video and board games. Now the brand is coming to card games with a game actually played on the show.
The company will release 2 collector packs on February 21, 2014. The "Finn vs Jake" box will feature Finn's Blue Plains deck and Jake's Corn deck. Archer Dan, Cool Dog, the Husker Knights, and the Pig will all be included in this set. To gank an Immortal Maize Walker you'll need to look in the second set, "BMO vs Lady Rainicorn." Pit BMO's Useless Swamps against Lady's SandyLands. Each collector set will contain 2 -40 card decks, 8 oversized lane tiles, and 20 hit point tokens.
Unconfirmed at this time is whether cards will actually fly into your hand from your opponents or not.
Trent Pitts is on twitter @TheTkp. It's really boring to follow unless you want an occasional comment on wrestling. Follow him he'll talk comics, games, movies. Currently he is undefeated in Adventure Time Card Wars. He's also been known to get as competitive about games as Jake the Dog, and doesn't really care if friends take a dive; a win's a win.
