Sonic: The Card Game is coming out this September; Pre-orders open

Sonic the Hedgehog doesn’t only speed through levels in our video games. Our favorite hedgehog also tries his hand at tabletop games! Back in March, we reported on a brand new Sonic card game that was coming out sometime this year. Not much was known about the details of this card game until recently.

In Sonic: The Card Game, players are racing against each other to earn the most rings. Every round, you randomly draw a card that gets added to your “level”. The levels are made up of the cards you draw from your deck. Here’s a small excerpt from Steam Forged Games’ official web page:

Playing as Sonic or one of his friends — Knuckles, Tails, Amy, Blaze, or Shadow — race through levels built by laying out random cards. Collect rings that are worth points, and power-ups you can either save for points or play for bonus effects. Whoever gets the most points, wins!

But there’s a catch. Each round, a new card is drawn at random and added to the level. Before that card is revealed, every player has to decide (in secret!) whether to keep racing or retire. 

Keep racing, and you might hit the jackpot and bag enough points to win! Easy, right? Not so fast. The next card could be an enemy waiting to ambush you and end your chance at victory!

With every card drawn, you’ll need to choose when to hit the brakes and when to blast through with Sonic speed. Have fun bluffing and guessing what your fellow racers will do next!

Sounds pretty fun, right? You can choose to play with two people, and have as many as six at your table. Unlike Monopoly or Dungeons & Dragons, this one is pretty quick to play. You can nab the rings and beat your friends in as little as 20 minutes. If you’re looking for something quick and simple, you might as well try this card game… or Uno!

According to Steamforged Games, Sonic: The Card Game officially launches September 20th, 2021. The game isn’t even that expensive! You can grab your own copy for only $19.95.

Pre-orders are now open.
