Shattered Arena tabletop CCG has been in development for roughly 2 years. Last year was devoted mostly to play testing, adjusting and developing new content. The game has just gained some web presence. Please sign up for the Shattered Arena mailing list, where you will receive updates and news of play test events. Follow Shattered Arena on social media and share with others who may be interested in the game. The next step will be securing artists to create the imagery needed to make Shattered Arena’s bloody exchanges and beautiful tragedies come to life. I’m so excited to share this game with you!
