TABLES, LADDERS, AND CHAIRS
We love to offer flexibility with how you can spend time in SuperCard. We also love game modes that switch up SuperCard’s mechanics and offer something new to do. These are the northstars we looked towards when designing Season 9’s flagship feature, Tables, Ladders, and Chairs. TLC offers unique gameplay and it can be played competitively, in bite-sized chunks, while your opponent is offline. It is something we’re pretty excited about and we hope you enjoy it, too.
TLC is played on a grid using your Men’s Division alignment deck. In the mode, you and your opponent will hide a Table, a Ladder, and a Chair on your respective grids and then take turns guessing where each other have hid them. When you correctly pick a space that holds a Table, Ladder, or a Chair a battle will ensue. Your goal is to find all your opponent’s pieces and defeat all their defending cards. The first player to reveal all game piece locations pockets the best rewards.
Winning a battle is half the battle. At the start of a TLC, your alignment deck will be randomly split into six defending cards and 10 attack cards. After this, you and your opponent will take turns battling and searching for pieces. A TLC game ends when you’ve successfully uncovered all pieces, a player chooses to forfeit, someone runs out of cards, or someone doesn’t take their turn.
One of the parts of this that we’re really jazzed about is the asynchronous nature of this mode. You can guess pieces, and proceed to battle, while your opponent is not online. And, yeah, every TLC move has a timer attached to it. If you or your foe don’t move within that time frame, the AFK player will be considered to have forfeited and their opponent will receive the win.
There are a few other wrinkles we wanted to cover:
The game board is a 4x4 grid. So a little bigger than Ring Domination.
Super Moves are DISABLED during TLC.
Ties are possible and both players will receive Tie-based rewards.
You can forfeit a match if things aren’t going your way.
Chairs take up one grid space.
Tables take up two grid spaces.
Ladders take up three grid spaces.
If you have any questions, throw them our way on social. We’re looking forward to seeing everyone on the grid in TLC later this November.
