V&V R&D Program

By Tod Allen Smith

Welcome to the V&V R&D Program. Through this program we’ll be making a variety of products for the Villains and Vigilantes Card Game available for purchase via the print on demand service at the Game Crafter. This program is part beta, part playtesting, part experiment, and partially just an opportunity to make the game available to players and fans before the final products appear in stores. We’ve been having a lot of fun with the game and can’t wait to share it with you.

Some products made available through the V&V R&D Program will be similar to the final product. Some won’t appear as part of the core in-store product line for years. Some R&D products may never be part of full print runs.

These are designed to be complete and fully playable:

  • These products come with all the cards and components needed to play the game
  • Every card has full-color artwork
  • The underlying system has been played and playtested extensively

V&V R&D Products will not come with custom packaging and are subject to change. The rulebook, deck composition, artwork, card designs, and card layout may be updated before our games are available in your friendly local game store. Games in the POD store may also be updated to reflect changes, updates, and improvements..

We’re hoping you’ll help us guide those changes. Let us know what you think of the game and the different Action Sets that we make available. We think the Villains and Vigilantes Card Game delivers on its promise to provide a super comic book experience in a deep, strategic card game. We know you’ll have a lot of fun with it. We also know there’s always room for improvement, We hope you’ll come offer your impressions and let us know what we can do better.

Thanks for joining us on this adventure.
