Steamforged Games brings out Sonic: The Card Game

Published on: 15th April 2021

The fast, fun, family card game featuring Sega’s iconic hedgehog will be available at retail from September 2021.

Steamforged Games is bringing Sega’s famed character to the tabletop in Sonic: The Card Game. Fast-paced and simple to pick up and play, the new game features colourful graphics and a racing theme for families and Sonic fans aged 6 and up.

Steamforged Games is passionate about delivering premium tabletop experiences and accessories, inspired by modern gaming philosophy and technology. Founded in 2014, the company has been responsible for licensed games such as Dark Souls: The Card Game, Devil May Cry: The Bloody Palace and Horizon Zero Dawn: The Board Game, Pac-Man: The Card Game, and original IPs such as Godtear, Epic Encounters and Bardsung.

Mat Hart, co-founder and creative director at Steamforged Games said: “Sonic: The Card Game is fast family fun you’ll race through again and again. Here at Steamforged, most of us have been chasing rings with the blue hedgehog since we first played the original Megadrive game. Now  we’re thrilled to be working with Sega and can’t wait to bring the game into the hands of Sonic fans of all ages.”

Sonic: The Card Game sees 2-6 players race through a new level every time they play. To win, they must collect rings, grab bonus cards and dodge enemies. The person with the most ring tokens and lives remaining wins.

Players select their favourite character: Sonic, Knuckles, Tails, Amy, Blaze, or Shadow, and shuffle the deck. As the dealer places down cards, they build a randomly generated level for players to race through.

Each time a new card is placed, players must decide whether to keep racing to try and grab a bigger pot of rings, or to retire and collect their share of the rings and bonus cards on the table. If players keep racing, they risk running into enemies and losing lives, but must balance this risk against the chance to win more rings and bonus cards.

Sonic: The Card Game hits stores in September 2021. More information about the game is available on steamforged.com.

Retailers interested in stocking the game are also invited to get in touch with sales support specialist, Jo Turner by emailing jo@steamforged.com.
