This is really cool. It took me a good while to figure out exactly what was going on. I haven't won, yet.

I don't understand "tap". What is "untap all" and why can I not choose it when I think I can afford it?

@RobotCaleb: To "tap" means to turn the card sideways (to make note that it has used it's "tap" ability), and to "untap all" means to turn all your tapped characters upright (thus re-enabling their "tap" abilities). You can't untap if you don't have tapped cards. Sorry if this is unclear, I meant to include hints by mouse over, but kind of forgot.

Also, if it's unclear, you can't tap to add resources if all your dice are already on the table.

Really nice game, possibly too hard. I've spent the last 30 minutes on it and think it is a really nice system, wouldn't mind seeing this as an actual deck. Nice job.

this was a blast. i love card games, anyway. i won with a score of 84 and totally ignored the tap mechanic somehow. proletariat pat was a lifesaver. time for a replay!

It took a while to figure it out, but I suck at card games... so... yeah. This was a refreshing change from the other games!

You took the theme and make something really unexpected. Good Job :)

A M A Z I N G ! ! !
I LOVED IT
there WERE some glitches, dice thinking they were other dice and so on, but that only ever worked in my favor. the only. I LOVED that you made your own original card game :D . only problem I see is that the tutorial was a little lacking, but I got it after a wile. 10/10!!!

Very interesting. This is one of the few LD games I wanted to play multiple times. I like how getting rid of dice you don't need is as much of an issue as getting new dice. You should makes a PDF of the cards for people to print out and play in real life!

In a few cases, what was shown on the dice didn't match what was available to buy, which was annoying.

Tutorial made it easy to understand but the dice are just plain mean sometimes. Score got reduced to twenty before I gave up out of frustration.

Aside from the dice, great game

I won! (-1)
I love cards game and I loved this one. Reminds me........nothing! Which is cool ^^ Verry original! But that absolutely doesn't need to be a video game, and I would LOVE to play it with actual cards and more characters!
Awesome!

Interesting game. I thought the interface worked really well. I mostly figured out the gameplay, but it was pretty confusing. The textures aliased a lot - it seems like messing a bit with the texture settings in Unity could help, but I'm not sure.

Very interesting concept, but it took me a while to figure it out.

I found it needed more explanation for it to make sense.

It needs a bit more explanation, but after I eventually figured out how the game worked it was quite fun. It was difficult, but I finally managed to finish with a score of 22. The idea of designing a card game is a very creative concept and it would be pretty cool if there was a real life version of this.
