It was about time to create some gallery here, right? To start, I’ll share with you something I created in 2007-8. It’s a card game involving all Tolkien mythology. Due to “budget” I never completed it properly, printed it and actually played. The basic structure of rules are based on Magic The Gathering, but there are elements of RPG, board and dice game. It’s all mixed up. I’ve always enjoyed creating games or expanding existing rules since I was a kid. Then I took the huge task of converting ALLTolkien creatures to cards. I went as far as 925 cards, but there are still missing some from the race of Men. Now, as it didn’t work out as a cards game, I’ll share my creation just as pictures, visual entertainment for Tolkien fans.
