Talk Over a Game of Cards

What happens when the creators of one of the most popular MMOGs on the market partner with the leading developers of trading card games in the world? You end up with the MapleStory iTCG, a card game that is simple enough for a 10 year old but still complex enough to keep the most in-depth meta-gamer occupied for a good long while. Recently, Ten Ton Hammer's Cody "Micajah" Bye visited the Wizards of the Coast development studios to take a look at the MapleStory iTCG and find out exactly how the card game came into existence.

"It was - and still is - very much a partnership," Henry said. "We pitched them four different game designs, from the one they selected to ones that were more like Magic. We worked with them to pick the style they liked the best and have worked very closely since then to formulate ideas for future product."
